Product Overview

MSI GP65 Leopard is a 15.6-inch gaming laptop powered by 10th-gen Intel Core processor in an aluminum chassis. Its sister model with a plastic chassis is the GL65 Leopard.
Both can be configured with either NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16-series or RTX 20-series graphics, up to RTX 2070 for the GP65 and RTX 2070 SUPER for the GL65. A choice of FHD displays between 120 and 144 Hz is available.
Both per-key RGB backlighting and single-color (red) backlighting can be optioned. MSI has endowed the GP65/GL65 with its proprietary Cooler Boost 5 cooling system with up to seven heat pipes.
MSI also markets the 17.3-inch variants of the Leopard lineup with identical feature sets as GP75 Leopard and GL75 Leopard.

Sentiment Score 60%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The Intel AX201 now comes standard for 802.11ax or Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. The bottom panel is secured by several Philips screws including one that is under a warranty seal sticker. Color space covers approximately 94 percent of sRGB and 60 percent of AdobeRGB to be smaller than the color space available on the older GP62 TN panel.

MSI offers a standard 12-month warranty on the GP65 Leopard. Keys offer good travel with the soft-yet-firm feedback typical of MSI laptops. The recessed touchpad (12.1 x 6.4 cm) is smooth underhand and offers good glide.
