Inexpensive MSI GP66 Leopard 11UH in review: Gamer with RTX 3080 for under €2,000

Leopard in attack mode. If you want a proper gaming laptop with an RTX 3080 and Core i7, then this has to be a high-end model, right? Wait, you want it to cost less than 2,000 Euros? So, here we go, the 15-inch Leopard from MSI joins the battle! But can it live up to its potential? We put the budget gamer with high-end hardware through its paces and elicit all its weaknesses, which it should surely have in abundance at this price.
Christian Hintze, 👁 Christian Hintze, Anton Avdyushkin (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Back in April we reviewed the predecessor MSI GP66 Leopard 10UG with Comet Lake CPU and praised the redesigned case. Newer GP66 Leopard 11UH is now equipped with a Tiger Lake CPU and the case has also changed. But the best thing is that the powerful gamer can already be purchased for less than 2,000 Euros in configuration with RTX 3080!

The GP66 11UH also comes with a QHD display or RTX 3070 as an alternative; our test model is equipped with a fast Full HD display.

The MSI is apparently one of the cheapest gaming laptops with RTX 3080, so it is not easy to find a proper competition in this price range. That's why we also used for comparison somewhat more expensive (up to +500 Euro) models here: Aorus 15P YD, the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15, the Schenker XMG Neo 15 as well as the considerably more expensive Alienware m15 R6.

Case - MSI's slight manufacturing flaws

The casing itself remains quite similar, but there are some crucial changes in the ports (see below). The display lid and base are made of dark, smooth metal, while the bottom is still made of plastic. At the back, the cooling system extends, increasing the depth of the laptop, similar to the Alienware.

Front edge comes off
Front edge comes off

The lid is surprisingly sturdy, as is the base in theory. However, our test sample have some problem: when we press the base to the left of the touchpad, the latter lifts away from the touchpad and large gaps appear - that's probably a reason why the touchpad rattles.

In general, the base only seems to be quite loosely connected to the surface, and the front edge also comes off very quickly, as you can also see in the photo. This should benefit maintenance, but on the other hand it does not really make a good impression in terms of build quality. The build itself looks very sturdy though, so it should be okay on the non-defective unit.

The GP66 is deeper than most of its rivals due to its protruding cooling system. Thus, it is very similar to the Alienware, which is another 5 mm deeper. Fortunately, it is not quite as heavy as the latter, but on par with the rest of the competition. Apart from that, it is one of the thinnest devices in the comparison. Again, only the new Alienware is a bit thinner.

Features - Honestly MSI, no USB-C?

Compared to its predecessor, the GP66 10UG, MSI dropped the MiniDP port in favor of a USB-C port. With the current GP66 11UH, MSI takes a step back and brings back the Mini DisplayPort, which is a welcome move. But the manufacturer also eliminates the USB-C port! Thus, the GP66 Leopard is the only modern laptop without a USB-C port! We do not know why MSI did this, since a USB-C port has become the absolute standard nowadays. So as a side effect, the laptop only has three USB ports. There is also no SD reader.

The remaining few ports are well distributed on the three sides, i.e. left, right and back of the case. MSI really has to be praised here, as there are a lot of space between the various ports, which at least puts things into perspective a bit in view of the meager variety of options. All potentially thick cables (HDMI, DP, LAN, power) are routed to the rear, and there are only USB-A and headset port on the sides - very good.

Communication

MSI replaces the Intel AX201 with a Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX1675 with Bluetooth 5.2 support. This does not make the Wi-Fi much faster. Although it is in the gigabit range, it falls short of the module's potential. Especially the reception curve has a downward slope, but the transmission power is quite constant.

Webcam

A standard HD webcam provides acceptable picture at best in Zoom, Teams and other conferencing apps. The picture looks washed out even in good light, and the color deviations are quite pronounced especially in the red and green color ranges.

Security

A Kensington port is on board, as is TPM. However, there is no fingerprint scanner or other security technology - which is acceptable for a gaming laptop.

Maintenance

The base plate is secured by at least 10 Phillips screws (1 shorter than all the others) and various latches. And although the front edge of our model was already partially detached before, maintenance proved to be more complicated than expected.

The front edge came off well, but the sides and rear edge did not at all. Especially in the area of the headset socket, the base plate was still so tightly latched (not directly at the edge, but inside) that we had to abort the opening attempt despite the lever tool, because of fear of damaging the thin plastic plate. The rear edge did not yield either. Hidden screws should not have been the problem, at least on the side.

The inner construction should be similar to the MSI GP66 Leopard 10UG (see maintenance section), but opening it was also problematic.

Accessories & Warranty

Apart from the power supply, there are no other accessories in the box. Note: MSI ships the GP66 Leopard without an operating system, but various stores should include a Windows license.

MSI offers a 2-year warranty with pick-up and return service.

Input devices - Good keyboard, touchpad rattles


Keyboard

The power button
The power button

Despite its 15.6-inch size, the Leopard does not have a NumPad. On the other hand, this ensures that all keys are quite large and also well spaced. The lettering is large and easy to read, even if the selected font is a bit unusual, which should explicitly appeal to gamers. The power key is part of the keyboard and located in the upper right corner. It can be triggered unintentionally during text processing due to the close proximity of "insert" and "pos1".

The stroke is quite short, but the feedback is still crisp. The typing noise is very moderate, only the space bar is minimally louder. Overall, typing on the GP66 is fun and fast.

The fn button sits on the right and is very small
The fn button sits on the right and is very small

MSI solves one thing very unconventionally: so important "fn" key is not on the left, but on the right and shares its place with the right Ctrl key. On the one hand, this means that you have to think twice and key combinations are sometimes quite awkward because you either can't use both hands for widely separated key combinations or you have to press the second key with the left hand. The key is also very narrow, which is particularly unfavorable since it is usually pressed with the right thumb. At least you can also swap the function of the fn key with the Windows key in the MSI Center.

In this context, there is a cool feature with a weakness: the keyboard has a 3-stage backlight. When the fn key is pressed, the illumination of all other keys is temporarily turned off and only the special functions of the F keys, i.e. the keys with which the fn key can now be combined, light up red. This feature has a disadvantage, however, because if we change the illumination level of the backlight, we do not immediately see the effect of this change, because the special keys that light up red do not change the illumination level, unlike the other keys.

Touchpad

The touchpad rattles
The touchpad rattles

The touchpad measures about 10.5 by 6.5 cm and has internal click buttons. The surface's gliding capabilities are good, but it clearly falters during slow movements or wet fingers. The pad is also rather imprecise in the lower corners.

As mentioned at the beginning, the touchpad of our test model rattles when you tap it lightly with your finger. This is quite annoying and also quite loud when you want to trigger clicks with a finger tap.

The clicking of the integrated keys is quite sluggish, especially double clicks feel unnecessarily strenuous, which you would rather trigger with a finger tap, where the rattling noise comes to light again. Overall, the touchpad, unlike the keyboard, does not cut the best figure.

Display

Slightly grainy pixel grid due to matte overlay
Slightly grainy pixel grid due to matte overlay

MSI uses a matte Full HD IPS panel from LG Display with 144 Hz. It is the same panel as in the Schenker XMG Apex 15 NH57E. Its average brightness of about 360 nits is the highest among comparison, and its distribution of 87 percent is decent. Alternatively, the GP66 is also available with a QHD panel (2560 x 1440 pixels).

The black value is too high, which is why the contrast does not produce top rates, but it is still comparable with the competition. Only the Schenker XMG Neo is clearly better here. When looking at the display from the side with a black image, you can clearly see the strong background glow. The black value naturally improves with reduced brightness.

Screen bleeding is hardly significant in our test model, the pixel grid is a bit grainy due to the matte surface. The panel's response times are okay, PWM is not used.

* ... smaller is better

The competition is only slightly better in terms of color space coverage. Only the Asus ROG is clearly ahead here, since it also covers AdobeRGB almost completely, whereas our MSI only covers 66% of it. Therefore, the Asus is preferable for image editing.

The display is configured well ex-works, and a manual calibration does not improve it much.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.2 ms rise
↘ 4.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21941 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Due to the good brightness and the matte surface, visibility outdoors is good - at least in the shade and with direct top view. Direct sunlight as well as oblique viewing angles should be avoided.

When viewing from extreme angles, some brightness is lost in particular, but only very little as is typical for IPS, and the content can still be recognized well.

Performance - Only the CPU benefits from the MSI Center

MSI's Leopard is a gaming laptop, which is indicated by the RTX 3080. Theoretically, the laptop should be able to render all current games smoothly in the native resolution and also have enough reserves for 4K resolutions.

Test conditions

We performed all benchmarks when the MSI Center was not yet installed. After all, the GP66 is only officially shipped with FreeDOS and not with a Windows license. The Windows performance slider of our test unit was always set to "Best Performance" for the performance benchmarks.

The MSI Center, on the other hand, uses other performance modes, which are hidden under "User Scenario". We will go into the differences to the Windows mode in the performance sections. In the MSI settings, you can also choose between hybrid graphics mode or discrete GPU only.

Processor

Like many of the current Intel gaming laptops, the MSI Leopard is equipped with an Intel Core i7-11800H processor. It has eight cores, which clock from 2.3 to 4.6 GHz individually. A maximum clock of 4.2 GHz is possible when all cores under load.

In our Cinebench loop performance only decreases minimally and overall, the GP 66 11UH is about 25% faster than its predecessor. Via HWinfo, we can see that the CPU allows itself 80 W at the beginning, but the following runs rather start at 75 W and finish with 53 W. Nevertheless, the results just surpass those of the Aorus with the same CPU.

The "Extreme Performance" mode benefits the CPU power in particular. Instead of 75 W before, the CPU is even can allow itself 90 W for a short time, which quickly goes back to 74 W instead of 53 W within one run. However, even in Extreme mode, the GP66 does not quite reach the performance of the unbridled XMG Neo or the Asus ROG with an AMD CPU.

The performance drops significantly on battery power: from formerly around 2,000 points, only 1,178 points remain.

System performance

The Leopard performs roughly on the expected level in PCMark 10. Nevertheless, the rivals are often a tad better, but this is more likely to be due to the measurement accuracy.

DPC latencies

The GP66 has latency problems with several open browser tabs or our 4K/60 fps YouTube video. The Leopard collected dropped frames every second in the test video, 64 in the end. Among other things, the NT kernel & system driver is to blame. The competition has similarly high latency rates, but manages better with video playback, except for the Alienware.

Storage

The installed NVMe SSD from Samsung with 1 TB of storage is very fast (SSD/HDD best list) however, its top performance drops by more than half in the endurance test. This should hardly be noticed in everyday use, and the remaining endurance performance is still relatively high.
