MSI’s GP66 is a BEAST in Games!


MSI’s GP66 is a beast in games! We’ve tested it in 13 different titles and compared it versus other gaming laptops to show you why! My GP66 has Intel’s Core i7-12700H CPU, Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti graphics, 16 gigs of DDR4 memory as well as a 15.6″ 1440p 165Hz display, yet you can have a look at other configurations with the web links listed below the video clip. Now the RTX 3070 Ti graphics run at 150 watts with dynamic increase, nevertheless I also located that they would certainly still run at 150 watts also with the CPU also energetic, so in a game. Other 3070 Ti laptop computers we’ve taken a look at so far like Lenovo’s Legion 5i Pro additionally have a 150 watt power limitation, nevertheless that a person maxes out at 125 watts when the CPU is also energetic, so this means that the GP66 should have a side in video games. The MSI Center software enables us to establish different efficiency settings, and all screening below has been made with extreme performance setting and also coolerboost, aka max fans allowed, as well as this uses a tiny overclock to the GPU by default. Much like in 2015, the 2022 version of the GP66 also has a MUX button. This indicates we have actually got the choice of disabling optimus to further increase pc gaming performance, so all games right here have actually been examined like that for best results. Alright, so what about the screen though, considered that’s what you’re going to be looking at while playing video games? MSI gaming laptops normally have much faster feedback times based on my screening. For a 165Hz screen such as this we’re after at least 6ms for all changes to take place within the refresh window, as well as the GP66 is beating this at 4.55 ms, a good outcome. Display action time is one element that impacts the total system latency. This is the complete amount of time in between a mouse click and also gun shot fire shows up on the display in CS: GO, and also it’s an above ordinary result compared to lots of other laptop computers. Alright let’s get involved in the game benchmarks! My GP66 came with a 1440p screen, there is also a 1080p 240Hz

alternative as well, so we’ll contrast games at both 1080p and also 1440p resolutions to find out where it fits in compared to other laptop computers. After that after that we’ll examine out 13 games in all setting levels and look at attributes like DLSS, FSR and ray mapping, so let’s enter the results! Cyberpunk 2077 was checked the exact same on all laptop computers, and I’ve obtained this year’s GP66 revealed by the red emphasize. This is a superb result, it’s just behind the greater rate RTX 3080 Ti with dual the VRAM and also higher GPU power limitations in the extra costly GE76, likewise from MSI, or Razer Blade 17. The GP66 is getting to a 12% higher typical FPS compared to the Myriad 5i Pro with the same CPU and GPU, which should be an outcome of the 20% higher GPU power restriction. We’ve got a various option of machines at the higher 1440p resolution, as we only test laptops that can actually run it. The GP66 is still standing up incredibly well, once again only the Blade 17, more pricey GE76 and desktop replacement X170 were ahead. It’s just 6 FPS or so in advance of our other best 3070 Ti outcome, but percentage-wise this is still an 11% gain. Tolerable whatsoever thinking about they both have the very same CPU and also GPU. Control is additionally a GPU heavy game, also at 1080p, and also the full powered 3070 Ti is plainly why the GP66 is so high up on the listing once more. I suppose it does additionally have a tiny GPU overclock by default, however I do not truly find those to matter too much generally. This time around it’s just 5 and a half percent in advance of the Legion 5i Pro with the very same CPU as well as GPU combination, so much less of a gap, yet still conveniently a better outcome. At the higher 1440p resolution the GP66 was currently simply 4 FPS in advance of the same specced 5i Pro, however in regards to a percent it’s the very same

efficiency gap as we saw at 1080p. I need to likewise keep in mind that the 5i Pro has more recent DDR5 memory, while the GP66 is using older DDR4, so this might be an element also. See to it you’re subscribed for when I contrast these in a future video clip. Red Dead Redemption 2 was tested with the game’s standard, and again the GP66 is ahead of all RTX 3070 outcomes as you would certainly get out of the Ti variation, and just 5 FPS or a 5% increase contrasted to the exact same specced 5i Pro. It’s sort of insane that the Blade 17 with 3080 Ti as well as following degree up CPU was only just somewhat ahead, specifically when you think about that the Blade costs like $4000 USD. That’s nearly dual the GP66, once more you can examine existing rates with the web links listed below the video clip. The GP66 hangs back a couple of settings in this one at 1440p. I’ve said in the past that some of the older outcomes in this game at this resolution do not appear precise because a game upgrade, as well as I completely believe this is the reason that in 2014’s 5 Pro shows up to be in advance. This year’s 5i Pro was only evaluated a pair of weeks prior to the GP66, to ensure that’s a more precise comparison, and once again the GP66 had a 5% greater typical FPS. MSI’s GP66 is completing incredibly well contrasted to various other laptops, gave it is only the third 3070 Ti laptop computer we’ve had so far, but taking into consideration that I was expecting the Myriad 5i Pro to be among the much better results this

generation, I’ve got to state that I’m satisfied with this. Currently that we understand where this year’s GP66 fits in compared to various other laptop computers, allow’s see just how it does in more games whatsoever setup degrees as well as with attributes like DLSS, FSR as well as ray mapping. Let’s begin with God of Battle. With DLSS readied to high quality setting even the greatest ultra establishing predetermined was getting us around 60 FPS for the 1% low, so also the dips in efficiency weren’t that negative. Forza Horizon 5 was evaluated with the video game’s benchmark. Low settings was obtaining us a structure price near to the screen’s 165Hz refresh price, also at 1440p, though high settings was still conveniently above 100 FPS. Passing away Light 2 was one more game tested with DLSS on top quality setting. Despite DLSS on the reduced of both ray tracing presets was just able to hit 60 FPS. High settings without RT gets us 43% higher typical FPS, so depends just how severely you wish to map those rays. Fortnite was additionally evaluated with DLSS on top quality mode, however no ray tracing below as I think that simply makes less sense in an affordable eSports design game. High setups was close to the screen’s refresh rate at 1440p, and also even maxed out at epic setups was 100 for the 1% lows. I’ve always discovered Phone call of Responsibility Warzone to run well also at higher resolutions like this, and the GP66 was no exception to this. I have actually examined it with either all setups maxed out or at minimum due to the fact that it does not have developed in setting presets like the rest of the games. Microsoft Trip Simulator on the other hand wasn’t able to hit 60 FPS at max setups, though it additionally doesn’t actually need a super high structure price to delight in like those competitive games. Apparently this video game is getting DLSS in the future, so if that happens expect better feasible increases. Far Cry 6 was evaluated with the game’s criteria making use of FSR on high quality mode. 100 FPS at max

setups is a great result, though the lower setup presets do not boost performance as much contrasted to lots of various other video games, so may also play with it looking good. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was over 60 FPS at max settings, which I truthfully believe is a great outcome talking as somebody that played the entire video game at a lower framework price than that. Max settings are nearly never ever worth it though, so I ‘d possibly stick to high setups. Watch Canines Legion was over 60 FPS at max setups for the 1% reduced, again this one doesn’t require ultra high frame rates to enjoy either, so even at 1440p you must be able to have the video game looking excellent and running smooth sufficient. Likewise Rainbow 6 Siege was achieving 1% lows that were more than the screen’s refresh rate at max settings, so no worry at all below as even the dips should show up smooth. Control was evaluated previously in the comparison section, today we have actually got ray tracing made it possible for in the green bars. Incorporated with DLSS on, ray mapping was in fact executing well even at max settings obtaining us 80 FPS, though as we can see a lot higher is possible without it. Cyberpunk 2077 was also tested earlier, now with the RT presets below we can see that we’re not getting superb outcomes at this higher resolution despite having DLSS on quality setting. The lately included RT low preset was able to get us 60 FPS, but ultra setups without RT was a little far better, though we can obtain nearly double FPS at low settings. The factor exists’s a huge series of FPS as well as top quality presets so you have actually got some alternative to tune it just how you want. Red Dead Redemption 2 was reaching higher than 60 FPS at max setups with DLSS in the game’s criteria, yet decreasing just one level to high obtains us a fairly suitable 36% increase, and also like I stated previously, max settings normally aren’t extremely functional. Check out how Lenovo’s Legion 5i Pro done in a similar option of video games over right here following, or this video to learn if it’s worth upgrading from the 3070 Ti to the 3080 Ti, as well as obviously make certain you’re subscribed for the upcoming full testimonial of the GP66 which will certainly cover everything else like battery life, thermals as well as more!

Now the RTX 3070 Ti graphics run at 150 watts with vibrant boost, nevertheless I additionally found that they would certainly still run at 150 watts even with the CPU likewise active, so in a game. Other 3070 Ti laptops we have actually looked at so much like Lenovo’s Legion 5i Pro also have a 150 watt power limit, nonetheless that one maxes out at 125 watts when the CPU is also energetic, so this means that the GP66 ought to have a side in games. Alright allow’s get right into the game benchmarks! Fortnite was additionally checked with DLSS on high quality mode, yet no ray tracing right here as I think that just makes much less feeling in an affordable eSports design game. See Pets Myriad was over 60 FPS at max setups for the 1% reduced, again this one does not need ultra high frame prices to delight in either, so even at 1440p you should be able to have the game looking excellent as well as running smooth enough.
