MSI GP76 Leopard review – new design and RTX 3000 graphics cards on board
Source: Laptop Media English
One thing is sure – the GP76 Leopard now looks classier, and dare we say – passive-aggressive. Its build quality is on point with a very strong chassis and a lid that opens easily with a single hand. When it comes to performance, we see that the 130W version of the RTX 3060 happens to outdo the 85W RTX 3070 in some titles, although the difference in others is wildly in favor of the latter.

As far as the gaming experience goes, we were pretty satisfied. The keyboard is great, not only in terms of usability but with its per-key RGB backlight. In addition to that the Dragon Center software allows you to choose from a set of performance presets – either get a quiet machine or extract the maximum of the package. In our case, the laptop was a bit on the noisy side, when you opt for the full power, and if you want lower temperatures, you can make the laptop even louder with the appropriate function button.

MSI GP76 Leopard 17.3" Laptop Review
Source: Tech PowerUP English
The fans are loud, although not extremely so. Most of that noise is caused by air moving through the chassis; one of the fans is actually silent since all you hear is the additional airflow when it activates and is added to the cooling. That's nothing that can't be fixed by cranking up the decent audio, or you could just use some nice headphones, which most are going to anyways. Lack of a card reader, touch screen, and 4K stand out a bit and keep this from being a true top-end system, but the hardware is nicely matched, making for a decent gaming experience, especially when NVIDIA DLSS is thrown into the mix, which shouldn't be overlooked. As a platform, I really like the GP76 Leopard, but that price tag is not one everyone can afford, and some things that stand out as missing can be found on other models from MSI. That leaves the MSI GP76 Leopard as a great gaming desktop replacement option with portability for when you need to be mobile, albeit at the cost of 3D performance.

70% MSI GP76 Leopard review
Source: Techradar English
The MSI GP76 Leopard is a powerful gaming laptop equipped with a next-gen Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU to handle anything in your Steam library, but 'steam' should be coming out of the vents at the temperatures we encountered. With a huge 17.3-inch 144Hz display, this is still a great laptop if you can handle the heat.

MSI Vector GP76 12UGS-434

The MSI Vector GP76 12700H RTX 3070 Ti is the latest device to join the ever-growing MSI family. As far as its design is concerned, from the prominent raised hinges to the angled vents on the back and sides of the laptop, it gives the otherwise minimalistic laptop an aggressive look. Apart from that, the matte black lid is only broken by MSI’s dragon logo, which is also in black, but it draws the eye due to its glossy finish. Since there is no flashy exterior lighting to make the Vector scream that it is a gaming laptop, this model could easily do double duty as a workstation or creator laptop without looking out of place in an office or coffee shop. On the other hand, the underside of the Vector is dominated by venting, which gives a glimpse of the fans and copper thermals that are straining to keep the powerful internals from overheating. While MSI may have overdone it with the bottom vents as the fan started scraping the vent when it is shifted to a desk but it seems like given the size of this laptop there should be enough space for that not to be an issue.
While opening the Vector's lid, it still does not immediately give away its secrets with the interior retaining that all-black matte finish. However, only the large white font on the keycaps in the recessed keyboard breaks things up. But, that is only until the power of the laptop is turned on, as at that point the per-key RGB lighting blasts a kaleidoscopic rainbow. It is worth noting that there is full control over the lighting via the included Steelseries GG app. As for its connectivity, the MSI Vector GP76 has a reasonable array of ports which includes three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports. In terms of its display on the other hand, this model’s display definitely prioritizes speed over resolution with its 17.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 display delivering a blistering fast 360Hz refresh rate that will win over gamers that favour fast-twitch FPS titles or racing games. As far as its keyboard is concerned, the typing experience on the Vector GP76 is a pleasure with the RGB-backlit keys offering solid key travel and a springy response that was both comfortable and quick to type on. The keys are generally well-spaced, with the exception of the cursor keys on the right.
As for its performance, the Vector GP76 has been incorporated with an Intel Core i9-12900HK processor with 32GB of RAM, a beastly setup that is more than capable of tearing through any typical tasks one might find for it. In addition, the Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU with 8GB of VRAM is more than equal to just about any gaming task one can hurl at it, particularly on a 1080p display. In a nutshell, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.
