MSI today introduced four new notebooks that are designed for gamers and content creators. They come with performance highlights like the 12th generation of the Intel HX series or a powerful QHD OLED display from Samsung with 240 Hz. We’ll show you the new launches in detail.
MSI Titan GT77
If you don’t feel like having a big desktop PC anymore, the Titan GT77 is supposed to be the perfect space-saving alternative. The heart of the chic gaming notebook with cool RGB front bezel is the Intel Core i9-12900XH processor in the maximum configuration. In combination with the optional Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, it should conjure up impressive content on the 17.3-inch IPS panel. A refresh rate of 120 Hz and a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels promise not only sharp, but also buttery-smooth moving images. The Intel CPU is supported by up to 128 GB DDR5 RAM. However, not only the working memory, but also the flash memory seems to be right.
Thus, the Titan GT77 should be able to offer decent space for NVMe M.2 SSDs with 3x PCIe Gen5 x4 and 1x PCIe Gen5 x4. Thus, up to 32 TB should be possible. The maximum configuration model should be able to increase the power consumption up to 250 watts in OverBoost mode. Thus, the Titan GT77 should at least be on par with many desktop PCs in terms of performance. The keyboard also sounds like the best prerequisite for victorious gaming moments. MSI relies on a mechanical gaming keyboard from SteelSeries for the installed peripherals, which uses Cherry keys and of course a chic backlight.
MSI relies on comparatively slim dimensions for its Titan GT77 despite its bulging innards. The chassis measures just 23 mm in diameter and the entire device weighs 3.1 kg. In terms of connectivity, the MSI Titan GT77 also seems to offer everything that is needed for everyday business and gaming. Besides 2x Thunderbolt 4 / DisplayPort / USB-C, there are 3x USB-A (3.2 Gen2), 1x SD card slot, 1x Mini DisplayPort and 1x HDMI. For video conferencing, the notebook comes with an IR HD webcam, two stereo speakers with 2 W power each, and a matching audio combo jack.
MSI Raider GE77 /67 HX
The Raider series also aims to offer uncompromising performance in its latest edition. Again, the maximum configuration features the Intel Core i9-12900HX and a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. While the Raider GE77 HX offers a 17.3-inch IPS panel with either QHD and 240 Hz or UHD and 120 Hz, the 67 HX turns out a bit smaller with 15.6 inches. However, less seems to be more here. MSI uses a new OLED panel from Samsung for the display of the 67 HX. This gaming notebook has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and offers 240 Hz. Two PCIe Gen4 x4 interfaces offer space for NVMe M.2 SSDs, two DDR5 slots allow up to 64 GB of RAM.
The OverBoost is also used here, which provides decent performance especially in demanding applications. MSI also provides enough ports here. Besides Thunderbolt 4/DisplayPort/USB-C, there are 3x USB-A, 1x USB-C, 1x SD card slot and 1x HDMI. The gaming keyboard is also from SteelSeries and looks good in combination with the chic RGB bar on the lower chassis. In order to provide the most immersive gaming experience possible even without headphones, a powerful audio arrangement consisting of Duo Wave woofers and matching speakers is used here.
MSI Vector GP76/66 HX
With the two new Vector models, those who can do without the extensive audio features as well as the OLED option of the Raider models should get their money’s worth. Otherwise, MSI seems to have exciting technology up its sleeve with its optional 17.3-inch (GP76 HX) and 15.6-inch (GP 66 HX) notebooks.
Highlights like the Intel Core i9-12900HX and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti are namely also possible here. The keyboard and ports are also identical. Unfortunately, you have to do without the SD card slot for the latter.
MSI CreatorPro X17
MSI also promises a lot of performance for the CreatorPro X17. However, according to the company’s own information, it focuses on Content Creator here. And a look at the spec sheet makes it clear that the best prerequisites are obviously given here. The processor here is the Intel i9-12900HX in the maximum configuration. It is supported by up to 128 GB of RAM. The trio for decent performance is completed by the Nvidia RTX A5500. Furthermore, there is room for up to four NVMe M.2 SSDs (1x PCIe Gen5 x4, 3x PCIe Gen4 x4).
The CreatorPro X17 comes with a 17.3-inch display with IPS technology. This resolves with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, offers 120 Hz refresh rate and a 100 percent DCI-P3 color space coverage. Of course, connectivity is at least as important as performance for creative professionals. In addition to 2x Thunderbolt 4 / DisplayPort / USB-C, 3x USB-A (3.2 Gen2), 1x SD card reader, 1x Mini DisplayPort and 1x HDMI are available.
Price and Availability
This all looks very promising for what MSI has up its sleeve in terms of upcoming notebooks. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything more about release and pricing yet. However, another public presentation of the powerful notebooks is supposed to take place on June 7, 2022. The Taiwanese company will certainly also comment on these points there.
