MSI GT70 Dragon Edition review: last year's gaming powerhouse gets Haswell

 

Despite a few workable flaws, the GT70 Dragon Edition is a stellar gaming machine, improving upon the original GT70 without compromising its best features.

The MSI GT70 Dragon Edition took almost everything we threw at it, chewed it up and came back for more. It stands as a solid example of a hardware refresh done right, keeping everything that made the original great while still tossing in enough...

MSI GT70

 

MSI has undergone an "Extreme Makeover: Badass Edition." Its new $2,799 GT70 gaming rig is one of the first notebooks to debut with a fourth-generation, quad-core Intel Haswell CPU. It's also rocking a Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M chip, which was recently...

MSI GT70 One-609US Dragon Edition

 

The MSI GT70 One-609US Dragon Edition gaming laptop offers everything you might want--including a quad-core CPU, Nvidia graphics--at a price that isn't too astronomical.

Moderately price high-performance gaming. Intel quad-core processor and Nvidia graphics. Long lasting battery. Keyboard backlight adds customizable flair. Networking adapter optimized for online gaming.

Keyboard layout is unnecessarily crowded.

MSI covers the GT70 Dragon Edition with a one-year warranty covering parts and labor. It also includes a gaming-rig sized backpack—since most laptop bags simply can handle something so big—and an over-sized dogtag-like id plate, that can either be...

MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro Gaming Notebook Review: Appropriately named

 

It was only last year that we were singing the praises of the GT60, which was one of the fastest notebooks we'd seen to date. Its larger cousin, the GT70, features a 17.3” screen (versus the GT60's 15.6”), faster CPUs and GPUs, and even better options...

MSI GT70 20D gaming notebook

 

High-end components make MSI's GT70 20D one of the fastest notebooks on the market

Triple-SSD RAID 0 ; Extreme Edition CPU ; High-end graphics

Design looks a little dated ; Keyboard backlight utility isn't great ; Gets loud

MSI GT70 Dragon Edition gaming notebook

 

MSI's gaming notebook may have a Dragon pattern on its lid and palm rest, but it's not quite an epic fire-breathing beast

Good CPU and storage performance ; RAID 0 SSD array plus 750GB hard drive ; Good keyboard and touchpad

Design is a little too tacky ; Graphics adapter not high-end ; Screen could be a little better

MSI GT70 review

 

Complete overkill, but this is the most powerful gaming laptop we've ever seen

This power doesn’t come at the expense of battery life, as the GT70 managed an impressive four hours in our light-use battery test. This is hardly Ultrabook territory, but considering the laptop could loop our Crysis 2 benchmark for almost an hour and...

Huge thanks to MSI to sending in the GT70 2PE in for review and let’s hope MSI can deliver in the future like they have today!
