2021 MSI GF75 Thin 10UEK-029 Delivers [Or Not]

This is the 2021 MSI GF75 Thin 10UEK-029 17.3″ 144Hz 3ms FHD Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7-10750H RTX3060 16GB 512GB NVMe SSD Win10.

If you are looking for an MSI gaming laptop that has a 17-inch display, and the RTX 3000 series GPU, then this thin GF75 10UEK model is worth checking out. Why MSI? Because MSI is known as a great manufacturer of gaming machines so that alone we cannot ignore. The GL65 Leopard model is one of the best-selling 15-inch gaming laptops on Amazon for months.

But, whether your games will get real with this device, let’s find out in this review.

An Elegant 17-inch Gaming Beast

The first thing that you will notice with this laptop, is its hair-brushed Aluminum finish in the metallic chassis and keyboard. This 2021 MSI GF75 looks and feels well-built and is aesthetically pleasing. For the 17-inch gaming laptop category, this is a solid device.

I like the clean logo on the lid that does not light up like many other gaming laptops that have LEDs everywhere. Fancy a gaming laptop that does not have a logo at all? Consider Eluktronics Covert laptop.

17-inch on a 15-inch laptop body

This 2021 17.3-inch MSI GF75 Thin 10UEK-029 is surprisingly quite small and thin for a 17-inch gaming laptop.

See the dimensions of the MSI, the Acer Nitro, and the Lenovo Legion 5 in the following table.

From the table above, we can see that this 17-inch MSI GF75 10UEK-029 has almost similar dimension as the 15-inch gaming laptops.

For the weight, this MSI weighs about 4.84 pounds or about 2.19 Kg. For a 17-inch gaming laptop that has a power component inside, this is pretty lightweight.

Also, compared with the AMD Ryzen 7, this processor can deliver 10-15% better single-core frequency. Meaning you will have more FPS for CPU-hungry games.

Furthermore, this Intel CPU has features that AMD’s CPUs do not. Things like the Hyperthreading feature, Thunderbolt, Intel’s Optane, QuickSync video, etc are shipped with Intel’s CPUs, including this one we have.

What does this mean for you? This simply means, if you are not tech-savvy, opt for the safer choice for the CPU that has safer driver support, which is the Intel CPU.

Best-Selling RTX 3060 GPU

The MSI GF75 Thin 10UEK-029 17.3-inch gaming laptop comes with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Graphics. This “Ampere” Graphics card was just released on February 25, 2021, so it is only a few months old when we write this review. However, what interesting about this GPU is, it was sold out fast after it was released. In some stores, it was sold out in seconds.

This indicates that a lot of people wanted to get the affordable yet powerful and recent NVIDIA RTX 3000 series Graphics card as fast as they can. Due to the current situation where global export and import are limited, the short supplies and higher demands might also cause the shortage.

Performance-wise, this RTX 3060 GPU outperforms the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060, yet, it is more affordable than the other NVIDIA powerful GPUs.

Below are the benchmark for 3DMARK TIME SPY (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 vs RTX 2060)

And below are the example of games and their FPS when played with the RTX 3060 (though the result depends on your PC’s configuration). All games are played in Full-HD resolution, 1920x1080p.

Specs-wise, this new RTX 3060 GPU ships with more CUDA and Tensor Cores, and other updated components, to deliver a more realistic Ray-Tracing feature and more up-to-date AI.

Due to its capable specs, this laptop can deliver outstanding performance to do both gaming and other computer tasks. Want to play Cyberpunk 2077 with it? No problem, this laptop can handle it. Want to edit HD videos or photos? This laptop will slay it.

Again, the 144Hz 3ms IPS 17-inch display paired with the 10th Generation of i7, the new RTX 3060, 16GB dual-channel RAM (rather than 8GB), and 512GB SSD rather than 256GB are a monster combination. Moreover, the well-made and strong Aluminum finish makes this laptop will last for many years.

So if you are looking for a compact 17-inch gaming laptop that does not scream gamer, you’ll respect this one. Also, this MSI GF75 with its RTX 3060 hits the golden performance and price ratio.
