    I got my hands on a MSI GT75 with i7-9750H and RTX 2070. I'm currently working on a review of the laptop, but I wanted to chime in on here and post what I've found so far. Also, I wanted to shoutout HIDEvolution for sending this out for me to review!

    Preliminary Impressions:
    The i7-9750H is a ridiculously underpowered chip for a chassis with this much cooling. Even an extreme stress test, barely brought the average temps up 56/54 C on CPU/GPU. That's insane! With Max Fan off, the temps do come up quite a bit and the fans a quieter. But overall, this machine can run at great temps and low overall fan noise, which is nice. See the image below.

    My main complaint about the system is that it doesn't have a desktop CPU. With a chassis this big and thick, the laptop should be able to handle a desktop CPU no problem. I do hope they add that as an option in future generations. [EDIT: The i9-9980HK 8 Core CPU will probably be offered in this model. That one will be unlocked and very competitive with the 9900K chip.]

    The RTX 2070 performance has been impressive to say the least. It's really pumping out the frames per second. See the Far Cry 5 benchmark below to see that it's less than 10% behind the RTX 2080, at least in that game, though that game does tend to be limited by the CPU.

    i7-9750H specsa
    6 Cores
    12 Threads
    Max Single Core Clock: 4.5 Ghz
    All Core Clock: 4.0
    Full Load Power Draw: 55-60 Watts
    Maintains 3.99 ghz steady during stress test

    Of course, this is with a thick and heavy chassis with ample cooling, so keep that in mind. This laptop also had its cooling upgrades done from HIDEvolution, including bottom chassis upgrade, thermal pads, and Thermal Grizzly.

    I've done a number of benchmarks primarily focused on the i7-9750H. I've included them in this video here:



    Here are some quick screen grabs from the video:

    The laptop came undervolted by -0.050 stock. Not sure if MSI or HIDEvolution did this. I am assuming MSI did though. The CPU became unstable if I increased the undervolt to -0.080. So this chip was not undervolt friendly, though it doesn't matter much in this huge chassis. You won't get any performance gains since its not being throttled anyway.

    I'll add more to this when I can and when I get more thoughts together on the machine!

    Cheers!

    Very nice. Can't wait to see the full review. Always good information to be had.

    Aren't those temps pretty normal for the GT series? Don't quite know...

    Thanks for the info. As the for the undervolt, HIDEvolution does undervolt the machines when they customize it or choose to do so when ordering, otherwise they come from factory.

    Will MSI be doing an i9-9980H SKU this go around in the GT75?

    Hopefully they do release the extreme edition as they did it numerous times in the past because that would be awesome.

    The only reason you get such great temps are the hidevolution mods and liquid metal ^^
    Stock, you would easily be seeing 90C on cpu and probably over 80C on the gpu (my 1080 in the same chassis went to 90C even). Be happy you made a good decision and got it modded. Trust me, I know what I am talking about as I had the one with 8750H and gtx 1080 totally stock from the factory... :)

    This is just a review unit sent by HIDEvolution, but that's good feedback to know. I am honestly shocked. Really, it was that bad? It's hard for me to believe considering there are 12 heatpipes in this badboy. Is 90C on CPU with default fan profile? I am actually really curious and am going to look into this a little more because I am just about to post my review of the unit.

    I just did some quick checking up on NotebookCheck's review of the previous GT75, and wow, you're right. The temps aren't great with some thermal throttling under a dual CPU/GPU stress test. That's really surprising. I would have thought that this guy would at least stay under 85C with stock everything.

    All that said, the tests I have seen so far are on older GT75's. Nothing with exactly the same to what I've got my hands on.

    Yes, they are doing one, but sadly, they are only offering a 4K screen as far as I can tell.
