At the level of the packaging, nothing too specific as we can find, of course, the MSI documentation for a first grip, the charger transportable. Count 2 700 euros for this model 8SF-099FR with a RTX-2070.


While one is accustomed to a certain design when talking about laptops for Gaming (this is more of the transportable PC that laptops), the asus Gaming still remains a rare commodity. We find, however, futuristic lines, which clearly highlight the difference between a dedicated PC for gaming with a dedicated PC at the office. This is all the more obvious that the GS75 Stealth is less than 2cm thick, thanks to the Max-Q NVidia !

It is only when we are in front of you that you realize the road traveled since the first portable PC gaming ! The frame in brushed aluminum is black in color with inserts of copper color, which gives you a overall design more “adult” compared to PC laptops gaming classic. The whole offers a good finish even if we regret that the brushed aluminum take both fingerprints.

At the level of the power connections, we find not less than 3 ports USB 3.1 Type-A, two ports USB 3.1 Type-C and a Thunderbolt port 3 USB-C. There is also a HDMI port 2.0. A lot of progress overall and we are happy to see how the Type-C is becoming, little by little. The keyboard of the GS75 Stealth is of type Chiclet and it comes from Steelseries, everything is retro-éclairable RGB. It is up to you to see if you want to enable or disable the backlight and if yes, define the colors. But the most important thing is the quality of hits and on this point, MSI and Steelseries don’t disappoint ! Of course, this is not a mechanical keyboard but honestly, I play since a lot of time on the laptop PC for Gamers and the MSI always comes out well. I reprocherai may be just the keypad and relatively small. If you have the habit of using, you may be disappointed.

Even if I have aps too used to the trackpad, note that the latter is large and precise, it responds well but who is to play ? The trackpad is nice in any case with a good playing surface, good precision and above all a good coating.

A default of 4K, the screen of the MSI GS75 Stealth features, to our delight, a refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time of 3ms. If it’s good for the FPS, we regret a little that it is not certified G-Sync or FreeSync. In fact, it does not change much except that now you will have the opportunity to have 144Hz on the move and this is not nothing. Apart from that, the matte screen of the MSI is doing quite well with a good brightness and a good contrast, even if it is far from being the most contrasting. It is largely sufficient for video games but the more photographers among you may find the screen a fair bit.

Finally, for the sound is provided by DynAudio. Sound system 2.1 equipped with Giant Speaker was good and for the majority of the tests of games, I haven’t noticed the need to put on a helmet, except may-be in mode Competitive OverWatch. The sound is balanced, and I was pleasantly surprised by the serious.


If today es performance of the devices now exceed our uses, with a processor Intel Core i7-8th-Generation and a video card Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, the MSI GS75 Stealth turns out to be a sacred beast of a ride!!! So yes, it remains below a good old Desktop PC with desktop components (the frequency is lower for a better battery and a better heat management) but on the move, this is still quite impressive.

Available now on several games, Ray Tracing, impressive in some cases. The ray tracing is used to simulate the physical behavior of the light in order to provide a rendering the film in real time of unprecedented beauty, including in the games more intense. Take Metro Exodus, or the last Battlefield, some passage definitely do not have anything to do with the graphics of my desktop PC which runs yet with a 1080 ! After note that we do not have here a Full HD screen of 17.3 inches, and with a card like the 2070, it might even be said that it is sometimes exploited. It will therefore be difficult to take this portable PC gaming on the latest games.

With NVIDIA cards RTX, you also have the right to the DLSS. Super-sampling via Deep Learningest, this technology harnesses the power of Deep Learning and artificial intelligence to display images ultra-crisp, up to 2 times faster than the GPU in the previous generation with anti-aliasing techniques traditional. Unlike Ray Tracing, the DLSS is a lot more present on the latest games, and I must admit that the difference is visible much more easily.

Windows 10 optimized

Well, like any PC who is respect, it has the right to Windows 10 and in any way, to play, it is an obligation, so we will not complain on this point. If the MSI comes with a lot of third-party software that you uninstall them as month quickly enough, however, there are some important as the control center of MSI. This is Dragon Center and it is an application that will enable you to monitor what is happening at the hardware level on your PC, make changes, play with the colours of backlight (keyboards, etc), enable the Turbo mode of your cpu and your graphics card manage the fans so they can shoot at full power or not, to create a system image, calibrate the battery and optimize the sound or the screen.


With such a machine, the LAN could become a trend. The MSI GS75 Stealth is first and foremost a PC full and powerful. And thanks to Intel and Nvidia, it is also ultra-portable. If the defenders of the PC desktop it thinks it does not have to be perfect, it is undeniable that the GS75 is positioned as one of the best solutions to play on the go. The future hoped for since the beginning of notebook PC gaming is finally here, and it has a price !
