MSI GE76 Raider review: Alder Lake and RTX 3080 Ti dominate


The MSI GE76 Raider shows off the performance potential of next-gen PC hardware.

Fantastic gaming performance Super-fast video editing Lots of ports 1080p webcam MUX switch included Good thermals

Thick and heavy Poor touchpad Low battery life

“The MSI GE76 Raider is an old school gaming laptop with new-school PC parts inside.”

MSI GE76 Raider review: Alder Lake is good, with caveats


Intel shines, when the conditions are right.

Category-topping game performance ; Huge port selection ; Webcam is actually good

Holy cow, it’s expensive ; 1080p screen ; Short battery life ; It’s big and heavy

MSI’s new GE76 Raider, powered by Intel’s brand-new Core i9-12900HK. It blows last year’s gaming laptops out of the water. But those results may not necessarily transfer to thinner and lighter devices at more affordable price points.

MSI GE76 Raider Review


Ready for high-end 1080p gaming with RTX 3080 GPU ; GPU is powerful enough to push the 300Hz display in competitive esports titles ; Customizable chassis and keyboard LEDs ; Multiple configurations, including some better values than our review model ;...

Big and bulky, but no faster than smaller competitors ; RTX 3080 not clearly worth its added cost ; So-so battery life

The MSI GE76 Raider is a powerful big-screen gaming laptop with all the advanced features you could want, but it's bulky by modern standards, and its mid-level configurations are better values than our top-end test unit.

MSI GE76 Raider review: High-wattage RTX 3080 GPU for the win


The MSI GE76 Raider gaming laptop delivers blazing 155-watt GeForce RTX 3080 performance, with all the RGB your eyes can take.

Full frontal RGB flair ; Blistering 155-watt GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU ; Surprisingly good battery life

If you don't want RGB, this isn't the laptop for you ; CPU performance is slightly slower than that of its peers, much slower than Ryzen ; All the fan noise you've come to expect from a gaming laptop

The display is a 17.3-inch, 16:9 AU Optronics panel with a 300Hz refresh rate. We measured a maxium brightness of about 270 nits, with an asterisk: That brightness is attained only with the screen set to the Microsoft Hybrid Graphics mode, also known...

Gaming laptop CPU showdown: Intel 11th-gen vs 10th-gen vs AMD Ryzen 5000


What's the best laptop gaming CPU: Intel 11th-gen, Intel 10th-gen, or AMD's Ryzen 5000? We compared them all in this knock-down, drag-out benchmark fight.

We’ve been waiting months to get a better idea of whether the Ryzen 9 5900HX or the 11th gen Core i9-11980HK is the better gaming CPU. From what we can see today, at least, we’d have to give it to the 11th-gen Core i9, which generally has a...

MSI GE76 Raider review: Alder Lake and RTX 3080 pack a serious punch


Meet MSI's latest gaming beast

Incredible overall and gaming performance ; Comfortable keyboard ; Solid battery life ; Blazing fast transfer speeds

Cost prohibitive ; Display could be brighter and more vivid

Boasting Intel’s new 12th Gen processor and Nvidia’s latest RTX 3080 Ti GPU, the MSI GE76 Raider is bursting at the seams with power.

The MSI GE76 Raider Review: Tiger Lake Plus Ampere Equals Framerate


Let us pretend we are desktop people, thinking about building a new system. What would we look for? If we are after a gaming system, clearly, we need a big GPU. A very beefy CPU is a nice touch as well if we want to keep the GPU fed. Plenty of memory,...

MSI GE76 Raider Review


If you need an uber-powerful workstation, the MSI GE76 Raider fits the bill, but its size is massive.

Stocked with latest hardware ; Peak in-class performance ; Plenty of ports and features

Heavy and clunky ; Poor battery life ; Small trackpad

MSI GE76 Raider Review: Intel Core i9-12900HK and RTX 3080 Ti Tested


Nvidia and Intel's latest parts power MSI's latest powerhouse.

+ Strong CPU and GPU performance ; + Plenty of ports ; + RGB light bar is striking

- Fans run loud to keep it cool ; - Display is dimmer than last year's model ; - Can get very pricey

The MSI GE76 Raider combines the most powerful CPU and GPU options for impressive gaming performance, but the fans get noisy fighting to keep things cool.
