Making the best gaming laptops in the world takes something special. Not only does it require a deep understanding of the hardware you’re working with, but also an understanding of what a demanding gamer needs. MSI, a company with years of experience designing laptops and one that has worked with some of the world’s top esports players, has that expertise. This know-how comes into play in the MSI Titan GT77, which happens to be the most powerful gaming laptop in the world.
The incredibly powerful MSI Titan GT77 and Raider GE series laptops represent the culmination of this experience.
Most powerful gaming laptop in the world: MSI Titan GT77
Titan, MSI couldn’t have found a better word to describe this beast of a machine. Even though it looks like a laptop, the Titan GT77 packs features that would shake many a PC. The display is an ultra-bright 17.3-inch MINI-LED model that goes up to 4K 144Hz while also being 100% DCI-P3 and HDR compatible. You get ultra-low profile Cherry MX keys – yes, a mechanical keyboard in a laptop powered by one of Intel’s most powerful CPUs: the Intel Core i9-13980HX, and Nvidia’s most powerful mobile GPU: the Nvidia RTX 4090 with 16 GB GDDR6.
You get four DDR5 RAM slots, three NVMe storage slots, one of which supports PCIe Gen5 x4 (translation: dumbly fast), four speakers, LED light bars that improve gaming ambiance, and most importantly, CoolerBoost Titan, a 4 -Fan, 8 heat pipe solution that allows those hot and powerful internals to boost to a whopping 250W TGP. That’s 175W available to the GPU and another 75W available to the CPU. A MUX switch isolates the discrete GPU, giving you unfettered gaming power when you need a little extra power.
When it comes to benchmarks, the Titan can hit almost 100 FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 with RTX On (DLSS Perf. mode at FHD) and between 130 and 200 FPS in games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. For content creators, this Cinebench score reaches 30,000.
The port selection is also impressive, with this 3.3kg device supporting not only two Thunderbolt 4 ports, but also Wi-Fi 6E, HDMI 2.1, SD Express, 10Gbps USB and more.
This is a luxurious yet sturdily built desktop replacement for power users, be they pro gamers, game designers, or content creators.
MSI Raiders GE78 HX and GE68 HX | Portable powerhouses
The Raider GE78 and GE68 are both cut from the same fabric as the Titan. While not as extreme as the Titan, the Raider series is aimed at hardcore gamers who need portability and speed.
Both models are fairly similar, with the Raider GE78 offering a 17-inch screen while the GE 68 offers a 16-inch screen. Both feature MUX switches to allow the GPU to perform at its best and are surrounded by a striking dark gray titanium metal finish that looks very sleek.
The Raider GE78 goes all out, packing an Intel Core i9-13980 HX and RTX 4080 combo, beaten only by the 4090 in the Titan GT77. Thanks to OverBoost Ultra and the very powerful CoolerBoost 5 with shared pipe design, this laptop can also boost to 250W TGP, allocating 175W for the GPU and 75W for the CPU. Of particular interest here is the shared pipe design, which allows the system to passively balance thermals between the CPU and GPU, dissipating heat more effectively and giving components more headroom when space is needed. Thanks to this technology, the CPU can accelerate to 5.2 GHz on its eight P-cores.
For the display, you can play on a blazing-fast 240Hz QHD+ panel that supports the DCI-P3 color space.
The Raider GE68 HX is 400g lighter and more portable, yet packs an incredibly powerful Intel Core i9-13950HX CPU and RTX 4070 GPU. Benchmarks put the two Raider CPUs on par, allowing developers who need CPU power to work with either machine. While the 4080 of the GE78 delivers 100+ FPS in popular games like Cyberpunk 2077 (FHD Ultra with RTX Off) and Far Cry 6, the 4070 isn’t far behind at 85-95 FPS in the same games.
The GE68’s chassis is smaller but still includes the same CoolerBoost 5 shared pipe system as the GE78, which allows the GPU and CPU to achieve TGPs of 140W and 55W, respectively. Display options include a 16″ UHD+ 120Hz option as well as a 16″ QHD+ 240Hz option. Both support the DCI-P3 scale and are attractive to content creators around the world.
Both laptops support Thunderbolt 4, HDMI 2.1, 10Gbps USB-A, USB-C with DP and PD support, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3 and more.
Such raw power from MSI’s systems is hard to beat, which is why we believe the MSI Titan GT77 and the two Raiders will dominate the PC gaming landscape in 2023. Choosing either series guarantees virtually years of uncompromised gaming and productivity.
