It has a decent Passmark benchmark score of 13740, listed as a high-end processor that can handle the most advanced and demanding games and apps.

16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 memory at 2666MHz memory is quite a good size for most users’ multitasking needs and they can run multiple apps and browsers at once without any delays or freezing. The system supports a maximum memory of 64GB, if any of you will need that much RAM. And the maximum supported RAM speed is 2666MHz. The 512GB NVMe SSD helps with much quicker opening of files and overall snappier feel when you’re using the computer for different tasks and gaming.

MSI GF75 THIN is a very decent gaming laptop but has the sharp edges at the bottom if you want to use it by putting it on your lap etc. The screen does not have the touch functionality, but the keyboard (QWERTY US version) and touchpad are very decent and ergonomic. It has the crimson red-backlit keyboard with the glowing key edges for typing or gaming comfortably in the dim light or dark. The cooling system on the MSI GF75 is great with two fans, four exhausts and seven heat pipes for a better gaming experience. You can’t upgrade the graphics card, but it will be more than adequate for most gamers. You won’t get the accessories like a separate keyboard, mouse, headset or gaming controller included with your purchase and you need to pay extra if there is no promotion on the day.
