MSI GE76 Raider 10UH Laptop Review: A GeForce RTX 3080 PC You Can Actually Buy

A complete Makeover. After two years with the same GE75 design, MSI is ready to move forward with a full frontal redesign of the series. The result is a system that is heavier than its predecessor but for all the right reasons.

Announced earlier this year, the GE76 replaces the aging GE75 with new hardware and a completely new chassis design that MSI will be using for the next few years. It's a huge leap for the GE series aimed at cementing the family as an upper mid-range product well above the cheaper GP, GL, or GF series.

Our test unit is a higher-end configuration with the Core i7-10870H CPU, 155 W GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, and 300 Hz 1080p display for approximately $2900 USD retail. Lesser SKUs with the Core i7-10750H, 130 W RTX 3060 or 140 W 3070, and 240 Hz or 144 Hz panels are also available.

Competitors to the GE76 include other high-performance 17.3-inch gaming laptops like the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17, Schenker XMG Neo 17, Dell Alienware m17, or Gigabyte Aorus 17.

The visual design of the GE76 can be best described as a leaner GT76. Gone are the tacky red accent marks on the GE75 in favor of matte gray metal surfaces. Rigidity is firm all around including the front corners of the lid which was a weak spot on the GE75, but owners should be careful not to open the display too much or risk stressing the hinges.

The most distinguishing visual feature of the new design is the glossy LED light bar that extends across the entire front edge of the base. It's mostly visual flare and so it doesn't serve any practical purposes. Users can always disable or customize the lighting via the SteelSeries Engine 3 software as needed.

In terms of size and weight, the GE76 is a midway point between the ultra-thin GS series and ultra-thick GT series. It's worth noting that the system is nearly identical to the GE75 in all three dimensions even though the laptop itself is noticeably heavier by hundreds of grams. Thus, much of the weight gain can be attributed to all the internal changes designed to improve the cooling and battery life of the laptop.

Connectivity

The GE76 addresses the tight port positioning of the GE75 by moving some of the ports to the rear edge of the chassis. It also adds an additional USB-C port albeit at the cost of a dedicated 3.5 mm microphone jack.

USB-C charging and Thunderbolt continue to be unsupported which is a shame for a gaming laptop in this price range. Competing models from Alienware and Razer support both features in comparison.

MSI has finally upped the transfer rates of its integrated SD card reader to be approximately 8x faster than the card reader on the older GE75. Content creators will certainly appreciate the higher bandwidth when transferring raw photos and movies to the laptop for editing.

Communication

The GE76 is one of the first laptops to support 6 GHz Wi-Fi 6E for even faster wireless transfers and lower latency. Our Netgear RAX200 test router, however, doesn't support the standard and so we can't yet test the benefits of Wi-Fi 6E as of this writing. Real-world transfer rates are where we expect them to be for a Wi-Fi 6 product even though they make take a couple of seconds longer than usual before reaching maximum.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 13 Philips screws with one underneath a 'Factory Seal' sticker. Though servicing is relatively easy, the plate is slightly more difficult to snap back on than it is to remove. There are major changes from the GE75 as shown by the pictures below.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and warranty card. A velvet cleaning cloth would have been nice. Warranty is the usual one-year limited manufacturer protection.

Input Devices

Keyboard

SteelSeries has redesigned the keyboard with seemingly deeper travel and crisper feedback than on last year's GE75. The typing experience feels better than on the GS66 or Stealth 15M which have shallower, more Ultrabook-like keys. The translucent edges around the keycaps are also now gone in favor of more standard-looking keys.

Touchpad

The clickpad is relatively small for a 17.3-inch laptop at just 10.5 x 6.5 cm. The clickpad on the Razer Blade Pro, for example, is much larger at 13 x 8 cm. Cursor control is otherwise smooth and with only a bit of sticking when gliding at slow speeds. Its integrated mouse clicks are very shallow with louder clatter and stiffer feedback than on the Razer.

Display

MSI is using the same 300 Hz AU Optronics B173HAN05.1 IPS panel as found on the 2019 Asus Zephyrus S GX701GXR for similar characteristics between them. Its closest competitor is the 300 Hz Sharp LQ173M1JW02 panel as found on the Razer Blade Pro which has a slightly lower contrast ratio than our AUO panel. Maximum brightness and gamut are otherwise in line with most other high-end gaming laptops.

Interestingly, we're able to detect PWM only at the 100 percent brightness level unlike on most other laptops. The frequency is thankfully very high and so this shouldn't affect most users.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers all of sRGB and approximately 66 percent of AdobeRGB which is standard for high-end gaming laptops with fast refresh rates. Panels capable of both 300 Hz and full AdobeRGB or DCI-P3 coverage are not yet available in this screen size and so users will still have to sacrifice either one or the other. A few 4K panels offer wider color spaces like on the Razer Blade Pro 17, but such options are not available on the GE76 at the time of writing.

Less expensive GE76 SKUs with the 144 Hz panel cover only 60 percent of sRGB for noticeably inferior colors.

Grayscale is far too warm out of the box as shown by our X-Rite results below. Fortunately, this can be easily addressed via the MSI True Color software or with a colorimeter calibration. Average grayscale DeltaE would improve from 6.5 to just 1.0 and colors would subsequently improve across the board as well. We recommend adjusting the color temperature if necessary to get the most out of the display.

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 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 4.8 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. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
20.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.2 ms rise
↘ 11.2 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 detected 151500 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 151500 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 151500 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14793 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The displays on most 17.3-inch gaming laptops top out at just above 300 nits and the GE76 is no exception. You're going to want to avoid direct sunlight or else the screen will become too dim and washed out.

Performance

The GE76 comes only with hexa-core and octa-core Core i7 options. AMD options remain out of reach which is a shame considering how impressive the 7 nm Ryzen 7 4800H and Ryzen 7 5800H can be.

Both manual graphics switching and Optimus are available via the MSI Dragon Center software and the native 300 Hz refresh rate is compatible with either GPU. We recommend users become familiar with both Dragon Center and True Color as many MSI-specific features can be found in these applications.

Our unit was set to Extreme Performance mode prior to running any performance benchmarks below.

Processor

CPU performance is excellent at about 11 percent higher than the average laptop equipped with the same Core i7-10870H CPU to be on par with the more power-hungry Core i9-9980HK. Performance is even faster than most Core i7-10875H laptops due to the good CPU Turbo Boost sustainability of the GE76. Nonetheless, the chip still falls behind competing 7 nm AMD Zen 2 and Zen 3 alternatives like the Ryzen 7 4800H and Ryzen 7 5800H as found on some Asus laptops.

System Performance

PCMark 10 Standard
PCMark 10 Standard

PCMark 10 scores are consistently higher than the older GE75 while being just below our massive GT76 unit with RAID 0 SSDs.

It's worth mentioning that we experienced a couple of bugs during our time with the GE76 test unit. Firstly, screen brightness would always be stuck on maximum when switching to the integrated GPU. Secondly, the battery would sometimes recharge abnormally slow or not at all when plugged into an outlet. Updating the Intel graphics driver and reconnecting the AC adapter appear to fix their respective problems, but they're an annoyance nonetheless.

DPC Latency

The system suffers from major DPC latency issues and frame drops when playing 4K video content at 60 FPS on the iGPU. Switching to the Nvidia GPU or updating the Intel graphics driver addresses the frame skipping problem, but seeing skipped frames on such a powerful gaming laptop is no less disappointing.

Storage Devices

Our test unit comes with a 1 TB Western Digital SN730 for read speeds topping 3300 MB/s. However, expect drives from other manufacturers depending on the retailer as usual. RAID is supported should users want to take advantage of the two internal M.2 slots.

GPU Performance

Of the 8 laptops we've tested thus far with the mobile GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, our MSI GE76 is one of the the fastest by 15 to 20 percent over the average. Even so, this only puts the laptop about 10 to 20 percent faster than the mobile RTX 3070 in the much cheaper MSI GP76. Overall performance is about 17 percent faster than the mobile RTX 2080 in last year's GE75, but this gap may widen to 27 percent when running games in 4K to suggest that the mobile GeForce RTX 30 series is at its best when aiming for very high native resolutions.
