MSI struck gold with last year's GS65 Stealth. Trimmed bezels, an unbelievably thin chassis, a 144Hz screen, and impressive gaming performance. MSI has brought that same design up to the 17-inch size with the GS75 Stealth. Along with that larger size is updated components like Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics.

The GS75 8SG comes equipped with GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics. MSI opted for a model from Chi Mei, specifically the CMN N173HCE-G33. The Full HD panel manages to make a good to very good impression. 95% of sRGB is definitely noticeable on a gaming laptop.

  • High-contrast display
  • NVMe SSD

MSI's GS75 laptop is even lighter than the last generation GS73. The keyboard on our GS75 is firmer in feedback and deeper in travel. The clickpad is wider than on most other laptops at 14 x 6.5 cm. 4K60 video playback is smooth and with no dropped frames as well.

Pros[**]
  • Relatively light for a 17.3-inch laptop
  • Quiet fan noise when gaming
  • Relatively fast CPU and GPU performance
  • Very good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Smaller clickpad than on the GS73

MSI has equipped the 9SG with the same Chi Mei N173HCE-G33 display that we found in the GS75 8SG Stealth. The matte 17.3-inch display runs natively at 1,920x1,080, with the one in our review unit achieving an average maximum brightness of 343cd/m². The panel also has a 144 Hz refresh rate, a must for modern gaming laptops. It is exceptionally expensive at €3,440 (~$3,911) MSRP but will run all modern triple-A games at maximum graphics in 1080p with ease.

Pros[**]
  • Matte IPS display
  • 144 Hz panel
  • NVMe SSD
  • Good battery life
  • Thunderbolt 3
Cons[**]
  • Very expensive
  • Only one 2 TB drive

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The MSI GS75 Stealth is the big-screen GeForce RTX laptop to beat. With a moderate weight, a sturdy build, and respectable battery life, it's an envy magnet. The picture quality is good, with bright colors and dark blacks, though it's slightly less impressive than the 17-inch Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful GeForce RTX 2080 GPU
  • Sleek design
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
