How does the MSI GS75 Stealth i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Max-Q 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 laptop compare to the best CPU performance focused laptops and today’s most popular games?
CPU performance is always going to be something we are interested in, when looking to buy a new laptop. So if we compare this GS75 Stealth laptop to a CPU focused laptop, we will pick today’s top CPU performing laptop at the cheapest price point, then we can use this as a good measuring point for our laptop in question. Selecting todays ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 R9 4900HS RTX 2060 Mobile 16GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 laptop, we will use its mighty Ryzen 9 4900HS 8-Core 3.0GHz to compare against our Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz processor from our review laptop. We can see that the top end CPU currently delivers 35% better performance when benched against our own review laptop’s Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz.

How does the MSI GS75 Stealth i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Max-Q 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 laptop compare to the best graphics card performance focused laptops and today’s most popular games?
We may well be looking for a GPU centric laptop, and if that’s the case then let's see how this GS75 Stealth mobile pc competes with a top GPU performance laptop that is available today. Our comparison GPU focused laptop today that we have selected is a MSI GT76 Titan i9-10900K RTX 2080 Super 64GB RAM 2.0TB M.2 4K, which comes loaded with the GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB card. This top end GPU is currently delivering 40% better performance when stacked against our own review laptop’s GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q.
Our laptop GPU beats 334 games recommended system requirements when looking at today’s top 500 most demanding games. This number changes to 492 games if we compare to the top 500 most demanding games for minimum system requirements.
But the real test is seeing how well the laptop GPU performs against today's popular games. Our GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q compared against recommended graphics requirements for Far Cry 6 delivers 9% worse performance while against New World it’s 48% better and finally compared to Battlefield 2042 it has a performance difference : 20% worse.
The MSI GS75 Stealth i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Max-Q 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 has a 1080p screen resolution, should I get a 4K resolution gaming laptop instead?
We thought we would explore this question about best screen resolutions for your laptop, as it comes up a lot. This MSI GS75 Stealth i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Max-Q 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 laptop has a 17.3" screen and is 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels tall and in other words has a 1080p resolution. A 4K laptops will likely run with 60Hz screen refresh rate, so should the laptop’s hardware be able to get good frame rates at 4K resolution and due to the refresh rate the laptop would max out at 60 frames per second as its screen would not be capable of delivering any higher. Modern games in Ultra graphics settings are also normally too demanding for a 4K resolution anyway. A higher refresh rate is better and this MSI GS75 Stealth i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Max-Q 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 variant is available with 300Hz versions.
Dropping a game’s resolution down from the laptop’s native 4K resolution to a more sustainable 1080p or maybe 1440p, would certainly deliver extra frames and improve stability. So there is always that option if the experience is unplayable due to low frame rates. But know that this action comes at a price. Dropping from a monitor or laptop panel’s native resolution immediately reduces in-game visual definition across all the game’s graphics. It basically makes the game look blurry. Not an ideal situation if you just bought your new 4K gaming laptop. A 1080p laptop can still have some powerful gaming hardware in it and if it is good enough to run AAA games at larger resolutions like 4K or 1440p then attach it to a desktop monitor while you are at home and stationary. If the desktop monitor is pretty good then it wont have a 60Hz refresh rate limiting its FPS count in game. And is likely to be a whole lot more enjoyable playing on a 24 inch or larger monitor than the more standard 15 or 17inch screen normally found on gaming laptops.
4K streaming could be a viable reason to consider 4K over 1080p laptop panels.
At the moment our advice would be, stick to the 1080p laptop panels for now. Your laptop remains portable and 4K laptop’s just aren't quite there yet. The 4K needs to be a no brainer but at the moment you will still have to lower resolution in game to get playable but sub par visuals that still can't raise above 60FPS.

The primary 4K use would most likely be streaming movie and TV content at that resolution, assuming you have access to these services in 4K. At which point perhaps its enough of a selling point for you to consider a 4K laptop..
Hold that 4K gaming laptop cash for perhaps a more powerful GPU or fancy mouse or headset. That's our usual advice. Otherwise it might be a bit disheartening to pay for a 4K gaming laptop, and then be forced to turn the resolution down on modern games to get them to run smoothly.
