MSI GT72 Dominator review: a worthy successor to a great gaming notebook

 

The GT72 take everything that was great about its predecessor and wraps it into a new, more attractive package. The result is a well-built, ridiculously powerful gaming rig that lives up to the "Dominator" name.

New, improved design ; Screaming game performance ; Great speakers, keyboard and display ; Decent battery life (with GPU switching)

Annoying trial software pack-ins ; Trackpad has no tactile boundaries

Objectively, there was never anything wrong with the original GT70 Dominator. Sure, I grew tired of its design, but it still featured top-notch internals, excellent speakers, a solid keyboard and a great screen. The GT72 took all of those elements and...

MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438

 

The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438 gaming laptop improves 3D-animation speed and quality with the combo of a fifth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics with G-Sync. With smooth 3D rendering, it eliminates the glitchy...

Latest Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics. Lots of connection options, including USB 3.1 ports. Room for upgrades. Flat touchpad helps with Windows 8.1 gestures. G-Sync displays smooth 3D graphics.

Big and bulky. No touch screen. Rivals have higher resolution displays. 128GB SSD is a little tight for a gaming PC. Many preloaded apps.

Conclusion The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438 is a midrange gaming laptop that performs like a high-end gaming laptop. While it does come with a lot of bloatware, and its C: drive is a little on the small side, you can't argue with its best-in-class 3D...

Investigating NVIDIA's BatteryBoost with MSI GT72

 

We previewed the performance of MSI's new GT72 notebook earlier this month, and while we're still running a few additional tests for the full review, one area that we wanted to look at in more detail is BatteryBoost. Initially launched with the GTX...

The bottom line is that BatteryBoost is certainly improving battery life, though it does so at the cost of frame rates. Considering many console games target 30FPS it's not a horrible solution, but gamers willing to fork out the money for a notebook...

MSI GT72 Dominator Pro: Performance Preview

 

Once you get past the sticker shock, what we're looking it is a top of the line gaming notebook. MSI's GT72 is an overhaul of their previous GT70 design, with a new motherboard and chassis. The updates includes a slimmer and slightly lighter chassis...

NVIDIA made some big promises with the GTX 980M, and in general they delivered. While the gap between the desktop GTX 980 and mobile the GTX 980M may end up being more than 25% in many cases, that's probably going to be more a case of CPU performance...

MSI GT72S Dominator Pro review

 

A very expensive laptop with a surprisingly cheap feel

Desktop-quality graphics ; 4K display

Battery life ; Poor sound ; Plastic body feels cheap

The MSI GT72S Dominator Pro has plenty of power thanks to a desktop graphics card, but it can't overcome its terrible battery and cheap plastic feel.
