MSI GE Raider Gaming Laptops – The Enthusiast Gamers Choice

MSI GE63 and GE75 Raider Gaming Laptops - Gadget Boulevard

MSI recently updated their whole lineup of laptops following the release of the Nvidia RTX graphics cards for laptops. And this includes the MSI GE Raider Gaming Laptops Series.

Just in case you don’t know, there are about seven different series under MSI’s Gaming Series of laptops that they currently offer.

And not to mention three series for their business-oriented Prestige and four for their Workstation series.

For more about the MSI Prestige Series of laptops, check out our MSI P65 Creator article.

Since there are a lot of them, let’s focus first on the Gaming Series.

More specifically the mid-level or as MSI categorizes it the Enthusiastic Gamer oriented MSI GE Raider Gaming Laptops.

MSI GE63 Raider – Your 15.6″ Portable Gaming Laptop

So let’s start with the GE63 Series of gaming laptops. Now we know that the GE Series is the middle ground for MSI’s Gaming Laptops but did you know that this is the most versatile series of laptops that MSI have.

Versatile in the sense that it is focused on performance while giving you the best value of your moneys worth.

GeForce RTX graphics under the hood

For the 15.6 inch category, the MSI GE63 Raider gaming laptops offers you with three choices of performance.

You can choose to have either the RTX 2060, RTX 2070, or the GeForce RTX 2080 as your graphics card.

All three models of the GE63 Raider Series will have the same 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor.

Furthermore all three will have the same 16 GB of DDR4-2666Mhz memory. But it will be upgradeable to a maximum of 32GB.

More storage!

Storage on the GE63 Raider gaming laptops will be a combination of an NVMe SSD plus a 1TB mechanical drive.

The GE63 Raider will either have a 15.6″ FHD 144Hz IPS-level display or a 15.6″ FHD 120Hz 3ms Wide-view display. But we’re not sure on the Wide-view display as all I can find is the 144Hz display.

For connectivity, all model will use the MSI Killer GB LAN and Killer AC Wifi + Bluetooth 5.

RGB for effects

All models will have the same RGB front cover and with that nice MSI badge that pretty much looks like a Ferrari badge.

Aside from the RGB front cover, all keyboards will have a per-key RGB lighting.

The only difference between the models of the GE63 series will be its graphics card, AC adapter, Battery, weight, and also price. See below comparison table.

Now that we’ve sorted out the different models of the GE63 Series, let’s take a look at the GE75 Series.

MSI GE75 Raider – Slim Bezels is What We Want!

With the 15.6″ model done, let’s now talk about the 17″ GE75 Raider Series.

The biggest difference between the GE63 and GE75 models are the display size and bezels. The GE75 has a more slimmer bezels on its 17″ screen as compared to the GE63.

And not only that, the GE75 is slightly thinner than the GE63 but weighs bit heavier by 40 grams.

But the GE75 display panel will only be the 144Hz IPS-level display panel.

Aside from those differences everything else seems to be identical. See comparison of GE75 models.
