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.

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.

MSI GP66 and GP76 Leopard – MSI’s mainstream RTX option in 2021
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

84.2% MSI GP66 Leopard 10UG Laptop Review: A Complete Series Overhaul | Notebookcheck
MSI kicked off 2021 with a whole lineup of refreshed laptops sporting GeForce RTX 30 GPUs. Instead of just a simple internal update, however, many of these new models have brand new chassis designs and the GP66 is looking like the best one yet.

Lisa Gade reviews one of the first gaming laptops with NVIDIA RTX 3070 and 3080 graphics on the market, the 15.6” MSI GP66 Leopard. Thanks to our sponsor, Blinkist. Go to https://www.blinkist.com/mobiletechre...​ to try it out for free! The GP66 is available with full HD IPS 144Hz and 240Hz displays and 6 and 8 core Intel 10th gen i7 processors and Intel Wi-Fi 6. The RTX 3070 is the Max-P variant and the RTX 3080 is Max-Q. It sports a new design (we compare old and new in this review) and an updated Steel Series per key RGB backlit keyboard with MS Precision trackpad. The laptop is reasonably portable and slim, though not as skinny and light as the MSI GS66 Stealth. For those who prefer a larger screen, there’s also a 17.3” GP76 Leopard.
