MSI GP76 Leopard 10UG

With the GS66 Stealth 10UG, we already had a notebook from MSI equipped with the RTX 3070 Laptop GPU in for review. However, the latter ran at a limited TGP of 95 watts, which resulted in significant limitations in terms of graphics performance. In the MSI GP76 Leopard 10UG that we now have before us, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 has a TGP of 140 watts and should, therefore, be able to fully utilize its performance.

Our test configuration also includes an Intel Core i7-10750H, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. With this equipment, the GP76 Leopard has to face the comparison with the competitors listed below. You can also add more laptops from our database under each section.

Case - Robust 17-inch laptop from MSI

MSI equips the GP76 Leopard with a sturdy metal case. Since this also applies to the lid, it's quite resistant to torsion despite its corresponding size for a 17-inch display. All parts of the laptop are of high quality and cleanly manufactured, so that there's no room for criticism here. The screen can also be opened with one hand, but the maximum angle is limited to about 140 degrees.

Despite the narrow display bezel, the dimensions are a bit larger than in other 17-inch laptops, especially in terms of depth. The weight is also a bit higher at 2.8 kg. However, with a thickness of about 2.6 centimeters, the GP76 Leopard can keep up with comparable 15-inch laptops. However, MSI's gaming laptop is still a long way off from ultra-slim gaming competitors.

Maintenance

Getting inside the MSI GP76 Leopard 10UG is a bit of a hassle. It's important to note that the front edge of the bottom cover is connected to the front, which in turn is attached to the top of the base unit. Together with the relatively tight hooks, a lot of patience and calculated force is required. Once the bottom is open, two M.2 slots for the mass storage devices, two RAM slots, and the WLAN module are easily accessible.

MSI grants buyers a 24-month warranty period. It can also be extended for a fee.

Input devices - Solid keyboard with RGB lighting

Keyboard

The keyboard of the GP76 Leopard 10UG offers a noticeable pressure point and a firm grip for the fingers, which also makes it suitable for users who type a lot. While the arrow keys are the same size as the letter keys, the F keys are much smaller. The MSI laptop also has RGB lighting that can be configured extensively.

Touchpad

Users of the MSI GP76 can use a ClickPad as a mouse replacement. It triggers mouse clicks reliably via touch functionality as well as through mechanical pressure. The smooth surface is also well suited for precise cursor navigation.

The screen of the MSI GP76 Leopard 10UG consists of a 17.3-inch IPS panel with a refresh rate of 144 Hz, and it offers a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The maximum brightness of 314 cd/m² on average is well suited for bright interiors and is one of the best rates in our test field. The brightness distribution of 87% is also on par with the competition.

We observe PWM at a frequency of 24,510 Hz starting at brightness levels below 39%. Since this value is quite high, users with sensitive eyes shouldn't necessarily have to deal with problems.

Our measurements show that the MSI Leopard 10UG has a color-space coverage of 89% (sRGB) and 67% (AdobeRGB), respectively. Furthermore, the contrast ratio is 1,131:1, while the black level is 0.29 cd/m². This makes colors look vivid and well separated from each other. In addition, black image content is displayed relatively richly.

The CalMAN analysis also shows that the display reproduces colors only with a slight deviation out of the box. However, this can be almost completely corrected by means of a calibration. The corresponding ICC file can be downloaded in the top right window next to the display brightness distribution graph.

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↗ 5.6 ms rise
↘ 5.2 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 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % 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
7.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.8 ms rise
↘ 3.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 8 % 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 24510 Hz ≤ 39 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 24510 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 39 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 24510 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 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel of the GP76 Leopard 10UG is very viewing-angle stable. Image content can be viewed from almost any angle without this leading to distortions or color shifts.

Performance - High graphics performance thanks to maximum TGP

With the GP76 Leopard, MSI targets gamers and users who are looking for a laptop for demanding graphics applications. In addition to the variant with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and the Intel Core i7-10750H that we are reviewing here, MSI's gaming laptop is also available with the Intel Core i7-10870H and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. There are also different memory configurations.

All of the following benchmarks were executed using the "Extreme Performance" mode.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-10750H used here is a hexa-core CPU that can process up to 12 tasks at the same time. The clock rates are between 2.6 and 5 GHz, whereby the duration over which high frequencies can be maintained largely depends on the cooling system. In our Cinebench R15 endurance test, the MSI laptop shows that it can maintain its performance consistently even over prolonged periods of time.

In the individual benchmarks, the GP76 achieves results that are slightly below the average of all the laptops that we've tested with this CPU. Users who opt for the Intel Core i7-10870H will benefit particularly in multi-core applications. The same is true for comparable AMD CPUs, but these are not offered in the MSI Leopard.

Gaming performance

Nvidia's mobile GeForce RTX 3070 can bring modern and demanding games smoothly onto the screen. Frame rates are usually well above 60 fps when the highest graphics setting is selected at Full HD resolution. Smooth gaming is also possible in UHD and 4K resolutions, although details might have to be reduced depending on the title. Overall, users will also benefit from the higher TGP here that allows for an increase of up to 20 fps in high detail settings depending on the title.

The performance that can be expected in other titles is listed in our GPU Games article.

Noise

The fans of the MSI GP76 Leopard can get very loud at up to 54 dB(A). The resulting noise is uniform and not high-frequency, which makes it tolerable. However, depending on the selected performance mode and the 3D application's load, the gaming laptop can also be operated almost silently.

The temperatures inside the GP76 rise up to 97 °C (~207 °F) during our approximately one-hour continuous stress test. The CPU clock rates are kept relatively stable at around 3 GHz, which is above the base clock speed. This means that the cooling system of the MSI Leopard 10UG works well, so that users don't have to expect restrictions due to excessively high temperatures.
