Despite its “VR” classification, we found the Core i7-GE72VR had unlocked multipliers inside our GT83VR review unit. From its SteelSeries keyboard to its effective, efficient cooling, it’s a gaming laptop to the core. We did test drive it back with the initial GT80 and it worked fine. There’s little in the form of fan whine or motor noise.
One literal “side” good thing about the touch-pad placement is that you will not accidentally swipe or tap it when you are gaming, ordinarily a problem with pads in the most common place below the area bar. Were inclined to state thats a far greater value, as the 1TB SSD array and 64GB of RAM inside our review unit would do little in the form of boosting gaming performance. At least you will not be tempted to upgrade, as 64GB may be the maximum supported by the GT83VR.
The other two DIMM slots can be found beneath the chassis. The GT83VR is physically larger and thicker compared to the GT80, nonetheless it generally maintains the form and spirit of its original design.
