The MSI GE63VR features Windows 10, the 7th gen core i7 -7700HQ processor and Nvidia GTX 1060 and Geforce Driver 388.71 version. The in-game testing settled in game options of graphics, let’s take the “very low” setting for the first step and see how it goes. The images below were been snapped during the testing.
 

Since the "very low" graphics setting won’t take much VRAM capacity, the bar below shows 1577MB been used among 6144MB(6GB) VRAM. The rest settings like Dynamic Resolution, Anti-Aliasing, Shadows, Environment Details…..would be in low level and the result could be expected of high figures, like 9503. Later we’ll take the “Ultra high” for the 2nd round testing and see how are the differences.
 

While having test on “Ultra high”, the bar shows 3118MB been taken among 6GB VRAM, almost double the number than previous "very low" testing. And the "Dynamic Resolution" is set to maximum 60 FPS, “Anti-Aliasing” is set to Adaptive, "Shadows"” and other settings are set to very high as well. All these settings will need more 3D power and VRAM capacity, then result in little bit lower figures than previous one which is 7742. But it still runs very will with “High” performance result.


Let's have some comparison images among “Very Low” and “Ultra High” and see the differences.
 

From the very beginning it’s very obvious that surface of the ground is more complicated in below image, which the graphics setting is "ultra high". Even there are more grass and the sky has more clouds. But the FPS shows higher numbers while there is less detailed.
 

After couple seconds, the differences are telling almost the same characteristics. While more detailed objects been requested to show, the FPS will drop a bit.
 

Let's check the detailed on the water surface and the dark side of the wall, it’s easy to see the differences and gamers who are looking for better reality with high image quality, the GE63VR GTX1060 can really go to “Ultra high” with very smooth gameplay.
 

Now let's check the transparency of the smoke, detailed of the shadow from the trellis or from the walls. More richness of the reality been expressed, the higher graphics setting it would be.
 

Let's take more closer look on the surface of the wall. More detailed texture been shown by "ultra high" graphics setting, even the shadow of the tree leaves could be felt so real. The “very low” graphics setting can deliver higher FPS but lower in-game reality, which the gamers are hungry for from now and then.

 

Verdict

More satisfaction will be given by the hardware when it can run smoothly with high quality and detailed images. Gamers with limited resource always count the C/P value after checking the review between hardware and software. For sure the MSI GE63VR GTX1060 version can run Assassin's Creed Origin with very outstanding score and delivers immersive visual quality at the same time. The testing above is for your reference no matter you choose to play ACO or not, but the MSI GE63VR GTX1060 series is a nice gaming machine would be another valuable point for gamers' reference.
