MSI GT76 Titan Gaming Laptop Review

Are you someone who often goes to LAN parties? Are you a competitive gamer and can’t bring your 32 inch LCD and your giant gaming rig with you to LAN parties?

Well there’s a solution that will blow your mind away. Introducing the latest from MSI, the GT76 Titan which is in fact a Titan laptop. The laptop has so many features packed into it that you would normally find on high end PC rigs. It’s their most extreme Titan ever created packed with the latest technology ranging from the latest processor to the latest graphic card. Whatever a gamer can fathom, this laptop houses it. Moving on let’s take a deeper look into what makes this gaming laptop so special.

Design & Aesthetics

The design aesthetic on the GT76 is like never seen before. The design is totally new and has never been implemented on older MSI laptops. MSI laptops typically use their signature black body with hints of red.

This GT76 uses sleek design on matte metal grey. The surface shines and give off a very gamer vibe. The top lid is constructed from high grade aluminum and houses their traditional dragon logo. This logo is also in a shade of silver. The deck is made from plastic because the laptop gets too hot and metal would not be suitable. The laptop weighs at 4.5kg which is heavy but considering the hardware it packs, we can let it slide. Also heavy machines translate to heavy duty materials. Meaning the heavier a machine is, the more heavy duty materials it has used for the build.

The laptop isn’t just grey but also houses some RGB LED strips that light up. It’s got two strips on the sides and one on the bottom side. What’s a gaming laptop without RGB right? Well on that notion, the GT76 delivers.

CPU & GPU

The GT76 houses corei9, 9th generation of processors that offer desktop grade performance as all of its cores are overclocked at 5 GHz. It houses 8 cores in total and all can run at boost clock of 5 GHz resulting in performance similar to desktops. It uses the 9900K. The frame rates it pushes out are just out of this world. With so much power what else can you expect? The i9 on this gives about 85% more performance than the older 7th generation processors. This improvement really shows in games that require high CPU usage.

Moving on to the hardware that makes gaming possible. We’re talking about the RTX 20 series graphic cards. The GT76 also uses these 20 series graphic card. It can house a whole RTX 2080 graphic card. NVidia is always known for its high end graphic cards and this does not fall short here too. The 20 series uses real time ray tracing that previous 10 series lacked. It also uses artificial intelligence and programmable shading. Well in term of end users view, these 20 series cards have all the power to play your favorite AAA titles at 1080p easily.

The output frame rates are also very high as almost all AAA games can be played at 100+ frames on ULTRA settings. This translates to a very good user gaming experience because who doesn’t like high frames? The overall increase in performance compared to older generation of these cards is about 45% and it really shows in games.

Display

The GT76 rocks a 17 inch screen that is available in either a 1080p panel or a 4k panel. This panel also has a mind whopping refresh rate of 240 Hz. This insane refresh rate is the fastest on a laptop screen. With games set to medium to high settings, you can easily reach 200+ frames on the games. The difference is greatly noticeable on the 240 Hz panel and you’ll have to see it in person to truly appreciate the smooth gaming experience on such high refresh rate screen. The color accuracy is on point with vivid and sharp colors. There is no drawback in the screen department at all.

Keyboard

It’s a shame that MSI has dropped the mechanical keyboard that they previously used on the GT75. It was a good keyboard but on the GT76, they’re using non-mechanical keyboard from steel series.

In no way is this keyboard bad but the tactile feedback like on mechanical keyboard is missing. Depending on the person using it, it may or may not bother the person using the keyboard. This non mechanical keyboard was used primarily to make it less thick. Some people would have preferred a mechanical keyboard in addition with a little thickness but a good non mechanical steel series keyboard is what you’re getting. It got RGB and each key can be assigned a specific color to light up according to your taste.

Cooling

Flipping over the laptop you’ll be able to see number of heat pipes through the grill. Well to power such a high end CPU that is overclocked and paired with RTX 20 series graphic cards, you’ll need a powerful cooling solution. It’s packed with a total of 4 fans and mind whopping, 11 heat pipes. Yes you read that right. With desktop grade CPU performance it needs optimal cooling to function properly. It outputs heat from both sides as well as the back.

Sound

The MSI GT76 Titan uses Nahimic speakers paired with Dynaudio technology that results in a clear, crisp and loud sounding audio output. The Dynaudio provides up to 50% bass boost and +100 dBA volume increase. It also packs the high quality ESS Sabre Hi-Fi DAC with the ability to support up to 24 bit/ 192khz sampling. The audio difference between this laptop and other laptops are quite easily distinguishable.

Connectivity

The GT76 uses the latest WIFI 6 paired with 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port that prevents lag spike by prioritizing network activity.

Conclusion

This laptop is the best of the best in terms of every aspect. With the latest processor overclocked paired with the latest GPU from NVidia and a screen with a refresh rate of 240Hz. This is all a dream for gamers and can be your reality.
