MSI’s GL65 Leopard is one of the newest sought products on the market from the tech giant. Equipped with a Comet lake i7-10750H, which makes gaming impeccable with the ability to run games effectively on the higher end graphic-wise. It has up to a 40% increase in performance on its predecessor the i7-9750H with up to 5.1GHz single core turbo clocking. The 1660Ti GPU packs a punch for most new games however it would have been great to see a newer model installed on the system.
The laptop has a 144hz display which supports 4K and is a must-have for all your First-Person Shooter needs as well as games that are frame dependent. Moreover, the system is equipped with ‘Matrix Display’ which enables users to increase productivity and expand your vision across multiple displays using an HDMI and mini DisplayPort.
Visually, the laptop is aesthetically pleasing with a black matte finish and iconic red MSI logo displayed on the upper side of its case. The keyboard is small and has a number of RGB light changing settings to attune to your needs. There are different modes which you can enable which change depending on what type of game you’re playing. I.e. A lighting mode for FPS games, a different one for MOBA’s, etc. My personal favourite would be the ‘freeway’ and ‘roulette’ preset which are very unique compared to competing products.
The exclusive ‘CoolerBoost5’ is a revolutionary cooling system which is perfect for performing multiple tasks under extreme duress with a total of 7 heat pipes to ensure maximum throughflow.
Another competitive advantage the Leopard yields is its integrated application (Dragon Centre) allowing consumers to seamlessly customize their own experience; whether it’s using the mystic light voice command to control RGB settings, using the ‘gaming mode’ to fine-tune settings to gain an upper hand over the competition, or even adjusting the battery to ensure you get the most out of your laptop. On top of this, the Leopard contains a game highlights replay system to capture all of your epic moments.
Sound-wise, the laptop has speakers that are 5x bigger compared to older MSI models which is outstanding for immersing yourself in your activities. The system is equipped with Hi-Res audio enabling crisp lossless sound compression for users to enjoy premium audio as it’s meant to be.
