Not into benchmark scores? Here's a more practical look at how fast the drive is: Skyrim chugged along at 75 frames-per-second in outdoor environments, jumping an extra 10 in dungeons, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II flirted with triple digits by flaunting a 92 fps average.


Both titles were configured to their highest available settings. Battlefield 3 managed an impressive 70 fps when tuned to ultra-high detail, followed closely by a PhysX-enabled Batman: Arkham City at 61 fps.

MSI GT70 Dragon Edition review: last year's gaming powerhouse gets Haswell

Grand Theft Auto IV's bustling city trailed behind with a respectable 40 fps average. Newer games didn't give the system pause either -- Bioshock Infinite averaged 56 frames-per-second on ultra-high quality and FarCry 3 averaged about New silicon or not, we were determined to make the Dragon stutter. Naturally, we loaded up The Witcher 2 and Crysis 3 -- two games known for MSI Notebook System Control Manager gaming hardware to its limits.


Tuned to their maximum visual settings, these titles finally gave the new GT70 something to groan about. The Witcher 2 initially clocked a middling 25 fps, just under the fps threshold that many gamers consider the bare minimum. Crysis 3 fared even worse, falling in at 19 frames-per-second.

MSI System Control Manager (SCM)

Of course, these low framerates didn't last long -- switching off The Witcher 2's Ubersampling MSI Notebook System Control Manager allowed the game to run at an impressive 55 frames-per-second on ultra-high quality with Crysis 3 seeing similar speeds when tuned to medium. We were even able to eke a bit more out of Crysis 3, tweaking its settings to a comfortable high-fidelity middle ground that averaged about 40 fps. In a pinch, one could turn down game settings and get by, but don't expect the eye-melting wonders we cite above: The Dragon is truly a beast, evidenced not only by its impressive performance, but also by the massive heat it's capable of generating. While most of the laptop stays at a comfortable medium-warm temperature during intense gaming, the area under its main left-side vent can get uncomfortably hot.

Thankfully, it doesn't have to get that hot -- the machine's aforementioned "cooler boost" mode keeps the area at a tolerable temperature, and is a must when gaming on one's lap.

Make sure you plug in a pair of headphones, however, as the fan is excessively loud when switched into overdrive. The temperature control is worth the extra decibels, of course, but we couldn't stand leaving it on all the time. Software A lot of gamers spend their first few hours with a PC unloading unwanted software MSI Notebook System Control Manager photo editors and media player trials from companies nobody's ever heard of, unwanted music suites and more.

It's a bit of a hassle. While MSI does have a habit of loading its machines with excess programs, the situation seems to get better with every unit we see. The original GT70 packed MSI Notebook System Control Manager entire suite of multimedia-management bloatware, for instance, but the Dragon edition has the good form to keep these "freebies" to a minimum. Aside from the somewhat-standard Norton Internet Security trial, almost everything on the machine is here for a good reason.

MSI's system control manager app offers a one-stop shop for all the machine's basic settings, and its Keyboard LED Manager allows the user to customize the laptop's keyboard backlight color, as the name implies. To change the previous setting, run the Dragon Gaming Center and choose "Instant Play" tab to delete, add or change the settings. To change the previous setting, right click on the System Control Manager SCM icon located at the Windows notification area MSI Notebook System Control Manager choose "P1 Settings" to call out the set up menu.

To install this package please do the following: Install this tuning utility and you will be able to manually configure various overclocking values, such as CPU and memory frequencies, system clocks, fan speeds, and monitor temperature for different components. However, please note that you're supposed to tweak these settings only between supported ranges; changing configurations to extreme MSI Notebook System Control Manager without additional cooling systems might seriously damage components. All of function keys suddenly stop working on Win8 system.
