[Review] MSI GP62M Leopard Pro Gaming Laptop: Living Up To Its Namesake


Up To Date

As how MSI usually is, all its gaming laptops are always up to date when it comes to current events and keeping in touch with the latest technological advancements. The GP62M is no different as it now comes with the latest Intel has to offer, its 7th Gen. Intel Core i7 processor. Paired with NVIDIA’s latest GTX 1050 GPU, the GP62M is a beast of a gaming laptop at a reasonable price.

Multiple Monitors

If you were keeping tabs on Razer and its technological advancement with its Razer Valerie Prototype, you can also do the same with the GP62M. Well, somewhat. With the Matrix Display, you can plug in an additional two external monitors, bringing your gaming experience to another level. To take things up a notch, the Matrix Display also supports 4K resolution output so your movies and AAA games will look glorious even if your gameplay isn’t.

Any and Every Excuse to Game

The GTX1050 in the GP62M makes my games look amazing. Playing Dota 2 and Overwatch and watching my team feed and throw the game away didn’t look as bad as the game in its own right was just great to look at. It also helps that MSI made sure the monitor is an IPS-level display, giving the games greater colour and sharpness. Take my word for it, play Battlefield 1 on this, you won’t regret it.

Blame It On The Lag No More

Gone are the days where you can blame your deaths and misplays on the lag. The GP62M comes with the Killer Ethernet E2500 Gaming Lan chipset so it can prevent your networking traffic from lag spikes. I for one saw no need for this as I still blame it on the lag with every death in the game (sue me). But if you actually take your gaming seriously, this will help stabilise your connection while still getting relatively low ping rate.

Balance Its Performance

Thanks to MSI’s exclusive ‘Shift’ technology, you can now switch between four different PC profiles so you can make the most out of your time with the GP62M. Switch to Comfort or Eco mode when you just want lower fan speed noise and temperature while working or watching movies; save Turbo and Sports mode for when you want to go all out.

  • Keeping It Classy
    The GP62M is easy on the eye; its metallic chassis with brushed metal design makes it an easy laptop to have and to hold for the rest of your life (much like a girl would, or so I’ve been told).
  • Ports For Days
    You get a total of four USB ports in total, one of which is a USB Type-C port, making data transfer very much faster compared to the Type-A ports.
  • All Gold Everything
    You get gold-plated audio jacks as well as Audio Boost 2 with an independent amp, making everything you hear sound better, clearer and sharper.
  • New Is Always Better
    Although SteelSeries manufactured keyboards on MSI gaming laptops aren’t new, it does come with silver-lining print, giving them much more durability.
  • Only One Click Away
    With just a push of a button, you can turn on six heat pipes and dual fans, which will actively push the heat out of the system, making sure the GP62M always stays cool.
