MSI Prestige PS63 Modern 8RC – Skinny, but magically strong

Laying hands on the MSI Prestige PS63 Modern is like bumping into a friend from high school who has completely reinvented themselves. The same person is in front of you, but they’re almost unrecognisable. Hopefully in a good way, like the PS63’s aesthetic makeover. A coarse-textured casing in carbon grey and blue? Teeny bezels and a bright, clear display? Hello there, familiar stranger. Designed f...[Read More]

rAge Expo 2018 is here, and it’s a gamer’s ideal spot this weekend

From playing titles that haven’t even released yet, to top-of-the-range hardware for the PC builders, and Fortnite competitions for the fort builders — rAge Expo is underway and you absolutely have to check it out if you have a single gaming cell in your body. South Africa’s largest gaming expo runs from 5 to 7 October 2018 (in other words, today until Sunday) at the Ticketpro Dome in Northg...[Read More]

MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro – Going big on a budget

The thing about an MSI gaming notebook (they make other types, believe it or not) is that you know what you’re going to be getting out of them. The design may not alter a lot between models or even generations but the insides… oh, the insides are what count and MSI’s kit rarely fails to deliver. Take the MSI GE62, for example. The version we had to play with was the 7RE variant, ...[Read More]

MSI Vortex G65 6QF – How do we slow it down?

Computers are getting smaller. That’s been true since… 1994, or thereabouts, but there’s always one sort of person who wants a larger rig. More power, more operations per second, more pixels being shovelled down pipes at a very expensive screen. Those people who think that a monster PC is the way to go all-in for power need to take a look at the MSI Vortex G65 6QF. The very small...[Read More]

Nvidia launches trio of VR-capable notebook GPUs

Just bought a new gaming notebook? Now that’s a shame, as your tech is now old. Nvidia has announced that it is bringing its GTX 10 series of cards to gaming notebooks… pretty much everywhere. These Pascal cards aren’t mobile-specific options either, Nvidia are bringing their GeForce GTX 1080, the GTX 1070 (which takes the place of the GTX980 M) and the GTX 1060 (which will take ...[Read More]

MSI GT72S 6QE Dominator Pro G – A trip to our new Skylake

I’m detecting a pattern here. This MSI GT72S notebook looks strangely familiar – shouldn’t we be getting some new stuff right about now? Actually, yes. And the GT72S is very different from the GT72 we saw a little while back. That’s because the MSI GT72 2QE Dominator Pro was just a lowly Haswell-equipped gaming notebook, one that has been eclipsed by the company’s GT7...[Read More]

MSI GT80 Titan SLI

The only good kill is overkill, especially in the case of gaming notebooks. It’s not for nothing that MSI’s GT80 gaming notebook bears the moniker ‘Titan’. But it didn’t stick, the moment it arrived at the Stuff offices everyone took to calling it The Beast. The capital letters are justified as well, for a selection of reasons. Its size, noise (this is kinda optional)...[Read More]

Stuff Picks – Best of Computex 2015

This year’s Computex, held as usual in Taipei in Taiwan, was again the scene of a bewildering array of products, gadgets and upcoming items of a technological nature. With companies from Taiwan, like Acer, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI, as well as international exhibitors like HiSense, Intel, Microsoft and Nvidia in attendance, it’s quite the demonstration. Alas, there’s never time for ...[Read More]

MSI SomeThings Panocam

There are times you want to keep an eye on things at home or in some other location that you own/rent/happen to live in. The reasons… are generally important, from a legal standpoint, because you’re not allowed to set up a camera in a public bathroom or even your home bathroom. That’s an easy way to go to jail. But if you’re looking for a non-illegal way to remotely monitor...[Read More]

MSI GS60 2PC Ghost – A gaming… ultrabook?

Sometimes you want to game on the go but without having to lug around a backpack heavy enough to make a Navy SEAL flinch, what with the average size of a portable gaming rig, plus the typically-massive power brick and any other peripherals that need to come along for the ride. But it’s almost a given, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do when you’re moving your gaming PC ar...[Read More]

MSI GT72 2QE Dominator Pro – What do you need a desktop for, anyway?

We here at Stuff enjoy our gaming, when there’s time to actually indulge in the practise. We’ve played games on just about every platform created, though we haven’t managed to play that Tetris-on-the-side-of-a-building thing we keep seeing, and we’re well aware that what you’re playing on is just about as important as the game itself. Some people favour consoles, whic...[Read More]
