Slim, lightweight, black designer gamer notebook supplied without Windows, the MSI GF63 11UD-1043XFR Thin offering 7 hours of autonomy, is capable of running a host of games thanks to its NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing graphics card, which also accelerates multimedia processing, like the high-performance Hexa Core i5 Intel Tiger Lake-H processor. Equipped with fast 512GB SSD storage for enhanced responsiveness, this versatile notebook designed for gaming and creativity boasts a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare display with a 144Hz frequency for enhanced gaming fluidity, a backlit keyboard (albeit without numeric keypad) and USB-C and Wi-Fi ax connectivity.
The MSI GF63 11UD-1043XFR Thin is currently available at Cdiscount and is positioned as one of the few in its class to offer operating system choice in such a lightweight chassis.
If this MSI GF63 11UD-1043XFR Thin does not meet all your criteria, you will find on our guide Gamer laptop other configurations to play with a similar budget. With the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, as it will have the most impact on performance.
With its slim, lightweight black design and angular lines, this versatile multimedia notebook boasts a gamer look.
Cooled by Cooler Boost 3 technology via 2 fans, heat pipes and air outlets, it features 3 predefined operating modes that can be toggled via the SHIFT function (Sport, Comfort and Eco).
To exploit the full potential of this creative, gamer-oriented Ultrabook, you need to install a complete system such as a Linux or Windows distribution.
One example is NVIDIA Optimus technology, which determines graphics requirements in real time according to the tasks performed by the user. When necessary, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the processor's integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics solution and the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti dedicated card.
Optimus favors the Intel Iris Xe as much as possible, despite its modest performance, because its low power consumption favors autonomy over the more greedy and powerful GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.
Whether you use one or the other, you can of course view photos and videos.
This designer gamer laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (more recent and powerful than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connections and communications, its HDMI video output (positioned on the rear) for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, and its audio and Ethernet ports, not forgetting its 3 USBs, all of which are compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, with USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connected to USB 3.0 peripherals.
The keyboard can, of course, be backlit, which is useful for better key recognition in limited ambient light conditions. It has been designed in partnership with SteelSeries to adapt to gamers' habits.
On the other hand, while numeric keypad functionality is standard from 15" upwards to facilitate number entry, it is absent here, which will upset some.
The screen boasts a refresh rate of 144Hz, higher than the standard 60Hz, which improves fluidity in games. The screen's horizontal and vertical viewing angles are generous, thanks to IPS technology, but not high-end colorimetry. Thanks to its anti-reflective coating, the screen is in any case more legible in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy slab. Thanks to its Full HD definition and 16:9 aspect ratio, it is also ideal for displaying high-definition content such as videos.
The MSI GF63 11UD-1043XFR Thin is a slim and lightweight 15" multi-purpose notebook with a creative and gaming focus.
It delivers good all-round performance for a wide range of users, thanks to 8GB of RAM coupled with a Tiger Lake-H Intel Hexa Core i5-11400H processor.
The latter reveals its full capabilities in CPU-intensive areas using multi-core processing, such as photo retouching or video conversion, which will be of interest to creative professionals.
Designers will also appreciate that the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti dedicated graphics card is on board, as it speeds up processing in software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop/Premiere.
Gamers haven't been forgotten either, since the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing with NVIDIA Ampere architecture is also capable of supporting a wide range of games, provided that you make the necessary adjustments under graphics-intensive titles to achieve good playability.
Storage is entrusted to a silent SSD that consumes less energy than a hard disk, is more robust and much faster.
In practice, SSDs guarantee much greater fluidity and responsiveness in use, which in turn means much faster software/game launches, processing and start/stop times, and faster arrival on the map for online games.
A 512 GB SSD is integrated here, a capacity in line with the hard disk standard.
If you need more space, a 2.5" slot is available for adding a second SSD or hard disk. An external storage unit is another option. Opting for a USB-C/USB 3.0 peripheral is then an interesting solution for fast transfers.
As for autonomy, expect around 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this relatively thin and light multi-purpose Ultrabook designed for gaming and creating, which heats up and makes itself heard when pushed hard (e.g. processing, games).
If required, a ventilated support to limit temperatures (remember to check the dimensions!).
