• MSI GS63 and Antergos


    Hi,

    I’m thinking about buying an MSI laptop, particulary an MSI GS63 7RD. I’ve read a lot about the issues when installing any linux distribution in them. Can anyone share their experience dealing with MSI and Antergos?

    The ArchWiki says that power management drivers don’t work on the GS63VR model, how bad could this be? I mean, how bad between “just a bit of overheat” and “the battery is dead in 10 minutes”.

    Regards
    Thanks!

    Intel graphics seems to be solved with a patch. I’m more concerned about the power management issues. What should I understand by “power management”: automatic supend and hibernation modes or something more like cpu frequency and fans speed?

  • @fnc wiki entry simple say powermanagement working=NO
    I would not say it is not working at all but there are no details about it…
