Right off the bat, 2021 is set to become an exciting year for gaming laptops as manufacturers have immediately been given access to the latest generation high-performance hardware such as the new NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series graphics. Among them is the Taiwanese giant MSI who have actually brought over several new models into Malaysia including the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider.
Hence, now is the perfect time to learn what this new gaming laptop is all about.
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series: Bringing You The Ultimate Play, Study, and Productivity
You can’t have a kick-ass gaming laptop without having powerful graphics capability. At this moment, the latest must-have graphics hardware in the market is the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPU.
Similar to its desktop counterpart, the GeForce RTX™ 30 Series for the laptop is based on the 8nm NVIDIA® Ampere architecture which carries plenty of improvements over its 12nm Turing predecessors. Among them is the 2nd Generation Ray Tracing Cores which help deliver up to two times the throughput for ray tracing.
In addition to that, the 3rd Generation Tensor Cores inside the GeForce RTX™ 30 Series for notebook help accelerate AI applications including NVIDIA DLSS which is designed to boost game framerates while keeping the quality of in-game images intact.
Additionally, the GeForce RTX™ 30 Series also saw the introduction of Dynamic Boost 2.0 that uses AI to optimise the power usages between CPU, GPU, and GPU memory which help ensure that the notebook is able to deliver maximum performance at all time.
All that firepower is not limited to just delivering smooth framerates and excellent image quality for your games though. For students out there, you can also harness the GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPU within the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider to help you complete your coursework much faster.
Whether its video editing, data simulation, or graphics rendering, GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPU is ready to accelerate your workloads. Not to forget, certain remote learning and collaboration platforms out there are also able to take advantage of the GPU’s advanced AI capability.
In Malaysia, MSI has equipped the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider with GeForce RTX™ 3070 which can deliver up to 10% more performance than the previous top-of-the-line option, the GeForce RTX™ 2080 SUPER.
Top-Notch CPU Performance from 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series
Naturally, a gaming laptop needs to have high-performance CPU as well and for the MSI GE76 Raider, that comes in the form of 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series processor. For those who are unfamiliar with the Core H-Series chips, they have been designed for performance-oriented users and gamers are certainly one of them.
The 2021 MSI GE76 Raider that the company has brought over to Malaysia is equipped with Intel Core i7-10870H which carries an 8-cores 16-threads setup. With a base clock speed of 2.2GHz, the processor has a Turbo Max speed of 4.8GHz as well as Thermal Velocity Boost speed of 5.0GHz.
In terms of general performance, the Core i7-10870H is said to be able to provide up to 35% more performance than the previous generation chip, the Core i7-9750H. Aside from the processor, the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider also comes standard with 16GB dual-channel DDR4-3200 RAM and 1TB PCIe NVMe solid state drive.
Blazingly Fast and Smooth 240Hz Display
Another must-have hardware for a model to be considered as a legit gaming laptop is a high refresh rate display panel. In the case of the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider in Malaysia, it features a Full HD 240Hz panel which should pair very well with the performance output from the notebook’s NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 graphics and Intel Core i7-10870H processor.
That is not all though as the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider also offers a massive viewing space through its 17.3-inch display. In addition to that, the display also comes with slim bezels on the right and left side of the screen which measures at only 5mm.
Reliable Network Performance, Both Wired and Wireless
Aside from raw performance, MSI has also made sure that users’ experience on the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider would not be hampered by a slow network. The company overcame this by making the new gaming notebook as one of the first notebooks in the world to support Wi-Fi 6E.
In addition to that, the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider is also equipped with Killer E3100 Ethernet Controller that can support speeds of up to 2.5Gbps. Since both the Ethernet and Wi-Fi adapters on the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider came from Killer Networking, the new gaming notebook can also take advantage of the Killer Control Center for both wired and wireless connection.
This nifty software not only allows users to analyse and monitor the condition of their network but they can also use it to set the bandwidth priority list for all the applications inside the 2021 MSI GE76 Raider. This way, users can make sure that their bandwidth would be properly prioritised for their games which also mean that their gaming session can be protected from lag spikes.
