Review MSI GX70H-A108972811B Notebook
« am: August 19, 2013, 04:02:08 »
The CPU problem. Does a high-end graphics card suffer from a weak processor? Many gamers will have this question when they consider buying the GX70. Our review takes a closer look at the performance of the gaming device. Is MSI offering a well-balanced package and can the Radeon HD 8970M use its full potential?

Nice article but this does not stop from getting this laptop next month.
I already done some research that you need to change the MEMORY(RAM)speed from 1600 MHz to 1866 MHz to unleash AMD A10-5750M full potential, upgrade the latest AMD GPU driver too. Well hope this help.

memory speed?

How much of a difference does the increase in memory speed improve the CPU performance in benchmarks or other?  Surely not that much right?  It will improve the GPU performance of the integrated GPU on the CPU die, but it won't improve pure CPU performance right?

Something is very off with this review.  The GX60 with the last year's APU, A10-4600, and last years dGPU, 7970, scored 75FPS on BF3 Ultra at 1366x768.

Last years hardware is generally slower than the latest stuff.  So getting 35FPS at 1366x768 at high setting in BF3 means something is wrong with the setup/methodology.

Why are the driver versions of the AMD based GX 9.12 but the Intel based system with the 8970 12.103?

who cares if it perfoms slightly lower than the intel with the same GPU... that laptop would cost you atleast $400-$600 more...

I currently own one and it plays all games very well at full HD, yes older cpu bound games dont push high FPS because of the cpu/apu... but it is a very affordable laptop.

Dude, stay away from the entire GX series. The perfomance is simply a disaster... I have GX60 and I regret getting this botched machine. A-10 is just weak as phuck.

Stay away from the netire GX series folks.
Botched to the very bottom, because of A-10 crappy CPU.
Worst gaming laptops for gaming...

Why would anyone get an 8970m gpu with an a10 apu. You could get an i7 with something like a gtx680m or 770m or 765m etc which will destroy this machine at games and the cpu would be 3-4x faster.

If they only added an i5 4200m haswell or something with the 8970m games would be playable at 60fps at least. To be honest this is very poor value laptop for the price. They put a high end gpu that gets wasted and the apu is near pointless for anything demanding. What I find odd is according to these benchmarks my i5 3210m at 2.9ghz gt650m gets much higher fps then the a10-5750m 8970m.

If they only put even an i3 in at 2.5ghz it might have been enough to play those games at 60fps. That laptop is very poor value for money as you have a gpu that you are not going to use at max 50% and in most games 30% of the 8970m. Which begs the question why not go for an i3 or i5 with an 8970m which will be much better for gaming. I sometimes wonder are amd and msi dumb making this combo.

At the moment its like a formula 1 car with a pit lane speed limiter on. Its got the power under the hood but its limited to like 20-30% whats the point. Also any cpu tasks will be ridiculously slow to.

You can get laptops cheaper that gets much higher fps as the cpu is so slow. To be honest this is very poor value. Cost £1000 and gets beaten my £315 samsung np550p5c in games wth gt650m. I would say this is one of the worst value laptops there is. The problem is you are getting gaming performance similar to £500-£600 laptop and much worse cpu performance then £300-£400 laptops. Another way to say it is, would you be happy buying a bugatti veyron with a speed limiter of 80mph when it can go over 250mph. Whats worse is you are paying for an 8970m that will perform like an 8750m-8850m at best with lots of fps fluctuations.
