Reviews for the MSI GP66 Leopard 10UE

MSI GP66 Leopard review – extreme performance and a very swift 144Hz display
Source: Laptop Media English
Today, we saw a very good performance, from a laptop that deserves your attention. Even though we had the lowest available option, regarding the graphics card (the RTX 3060), the results were exceptional. It seems like NVIDIA’s latest drivers have given the extra edge to their brand new graphics cards, and we saw the GP66 Leopard perform significantly better than its bigger brother – the GP76 Leopard.

80% Msi GP66 Leopard Review: Substance Over Style
Source: The Verge English
But the Leopard excels in the area that matters most: game performance. Not only does it blow budget competitors like the Lenovo Legion 5i out of the water, but thanks to the new RTX 3070 it’s a significant step up from today’s luxury gaming laptops while remaining a large step down in price. With a powerful new chip and a fresh modern design, the GP66 Leopard is an excellent new product to kick off 2021.

That’s about it for now, and bear with us as we’re filling up the blanks, MSI haven’t shared much with us in preparation to this video. Looking forward to spending more time with these and put them through their paces, and then share our findings with you. In the meantime, I’d love to hear what you think about these updated GP66 and GP76 Leopard lines.
