90% MSI GS66 Stealth review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $2,699 MSI GS66 Stealth is a bubbling font of awesome. From its stellar graphics and overall performance, lightning-fast transfer speeds and surprising endurance, there’s just a whole lot of win underneath that 0.7-inch chassis. And I didn’t even mention the lovely display and cushy, customizable keyboard. My only real gripe is the audio. I’ve become so used to MSI, Dynaudio and Nahimic knocking it out of the park audio-wise, it’s surprising when it falls flat.

MSI GS66 Stealth review – a change that is more than welcome
Source: Laptop Media English
Not many displays feature calibration software embedded into their Gamer-centric apps. And we really appreciate it. This, combined with the capable hardware that spans to Core i9-10980HK, and RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, and that can fit 64GB of DDR4 memory and two M.2 drives are something that not only gamers will like. Content creators, 3D designers, and architects might find using this machine a piece of cake.

75% MSI’s GS66 Stealth Almost Has What It Takes To Beat Razer
Source: The Verge English
The GS66 Stealth that we tested is a fast gaming laptop, and it’s priced competitively to Razer’s Blade 15 — even undercutting its most similar configuration when it comes to packing in a faster refresh rate display, a larger battery, and more RAM. It’s not a bad deal on the lower-end configurations either, keeping appealing features like a Thunderbolt 3 port and a 144Hz refresh rate display in its most affordable $1,499 model. Despite a few nagging design issues, the foundation is more sound and powerful than ever. MSI’s design is the clear winner compared to the plentiful amount of all-plastic gaming laptops in each configuration’s price range. For now, Razer is still the standard to beat, but MSI is getting awfully close.

85% MSI GS66 Stealth review (i7, RTX 2070) – white-collar performance notebook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
For the most part, the MSI GS66 Stealth is a good laptop that should meet the design, ergonomics, performance, and battery life expectations of its potential buyers, but it's also affected by small imperfections and quirks. Many of those concern the system's performance and thermals in demanding loads, that's why I'd primarily look into the lower-tier i7 + RTX 2060/2070 configurations of this laptop, as versatile a work/school computer with only secondary gaming abilities. We're getting in-depth in the lengthy review down below.

85% MSI GS66 Stealth review: A 300Hz gaming laptop in a crowded field
Source: Engadget English
The GS66 is a solid follow-up to MSI’s groundbreaking GS65 Stealth Thin. It’s more powerful in every way, it has a blazing fast 300Hz screen and it even has a decent keyboard and touchpad. But it’s heavier than before, and it doesn’t stand out nearly as much from the gaming laptop competition. Still, it’s a decent option if you’re looking for a premium gaming notebook without paying Razer prices.

MSI GS66 Stealth review: A premium gaming laptop in a crowded field
Source: Engadget English
MSI's GS66 Stealth is a solid followup to the GS65, one of our favorite gaming laptops. The new model packs Nvidia RTX graphics and Intel's new 10th gen chips in a sleek black chassis. But while there's nothing wrong with the GS66, it faces a much more competitive field. Razer's offerings cost more, but come in sleeker, more lightweight designs, and Asus's Zephyrus G14 is nearly as fast but cheaper, lighter, and with vastly superior battery life. We like the GS66, but these days, gaming laptops are so good it's worth shopping around.

MSI GS66 Stealth 10SE-045

Gaming laptops have always been a tremendous growing market, especially in this modern era, and the MSI GS66 Stealth 10SE is one such laptop to join the market. It is a classy gaming laptop with a 240Hz display. In technical terms, it is a slightly watered-down version of the GS66 Stealth 10SFS and also comes with a lower price than the latter. On the other hand, in terms of its hardware, the GS66 brings all the latest computer games smoothly onto the matte 15.6-inch screen with a 240Hz (as mentioned earlier) Full-HD IPS panel. While the display delivers good contrast (1,007:1), the maximum brightness (259 cd/m²) is relatively low, as normally values beyond 300 cd/m² are considered good. In addition, the display flickers at a frequency of 23,580 Hz at brightness levels of 19% and below. However, even sensitive users would not be that troubled by headaches and/or eye problems due to the high frequency. The chiclet keyboard with RGB lighting is definitely suitable for everyday use, improving the overall typing experience.

As far as the processor is concerned, there is a built-in Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor (Comet Lake) that represents a good compromise between performance, power consumption and price. The CPU runs at a base speed of 2.3 GHz. The clock rate can be increased to range between 4.3 GHz (six cores) and 5 GHz (one core) via Turbo. Furthermore, Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported. This MSI laptop provides sufficient computing power for all common application areas due to the powerful hexa-core processor, dual-channel memory, and a fast NVMe SSD, which makes for a quick and smooth system. Apart from that, the high-end GPU brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the screen.

In terms of its graphic cards, the GeForce RTX 2060 graphics core (Turing) supports DirectX 12 and runs at a base speed of 960 MHz. In addition, there is a possible increase of up to 1,200 MHz when boosted, and higher speeds are also feasible if the GPU does not reach a specified temperature and/or energy threshold. Apart from that, it should be noted that the GPU can make use of fast GDDR6 graphics memory. This GPU can handle resolutions beyond Full HD, although an appropriate monitor would have to be plugged in for this.

In terms of its noise emission, the GS66's fans can already turn up considerably in idle usage. At this point, the measured sound pressure levels were up to 40 dB(A). Nevertheless, the fans are indeed quiet from time to time, and then silence prevails. However, the sound pressure levels tend to increase even more under load. Overall, this device is a great gaming laptop to explore, depending on personal choice and preference.

MSI’s GS66 Stealth is a suave, debonaire laptop that’s fit for James Bond. Unfortunately, it also has its own issues under the hood that make it a little complicated to own. The so-so audio and less than ideal thermals make the laptop feel like a mixed bag, rather than a slam dunk that it should’ve been at the get-go.

MSI GS66 Stealth 10UH Review
Source: Vortez English
Having a solid hardware configuration, the GS66 Stealth 10UH tackles varying tasks with ease. A brief mention of the 8-core, 16 thread processor, 32GB DDR4, 2TB M.2 SSD and powerful graphics delivery from that RTX 3080, highlights how ferocious this laptop is. It’ll probably outperform most desktop computers. So, this laptop shows no signs of performance weakness and is able to offer reliable 3D performance in the latest triple-a gaming titles and will be proficient in content creation workflows too.

MSI GS66 Stealth (2021)

The fastest gaming laptop on the block it is not, however; our tests show that despite using a GeForce RTX 3080, our review unit trailed the Alienware m15 R4 using a higher-wattage GeForce RTX 3070. The Alienware remains our Editors' Choice pick for high-end 15.6-inch gaming notebooks, but the MSI is a fair runner-up, especially if you value its upgradability, good battery life, and much more conservative looks.

The MSI GS66 Stealth has a lot to offer gamers looking for a true thin-and-light gaming laptop. First, you’ve got the design that looks good anywhere. Next, you’ve got that powerful Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU and the host of new and improved features the company has baked into the chip. And you’ve also got the Core i7 processor for multitasking and an extra-large battery for those extended gaming sessions. Plus, you have a high-res display with a super-high refresh rate.

The MSI GS66 Stealth is one of the classiest-looking laptops around and much more robust than its predecessors. Under the hood, there’s enough power for excellent gaming performance and thanks to its 300hz display, you can expect high frame rates for extra smooth visuals. The price may not be easy on your back pocket, but the GS66 Stealth is a nifty piece of hardware.

75% MSI’s GS66 Stealth Review: Powerful But Pricey
Source: The Verge English
The original first-look at this laptop focused on how good it was at playing games at QHD resolution. Since then, our team has reviewed several other laptops that feature Nvidia’s latest generation of RTX 30-series graphics cards, as well as a few that have QHD screens, too. In that time, we’ve agreed that the RTX 3070, the next notch down on the totem pole of Nvidia’s latest graphics card lineup, is better at QHD gaming than we expected. The Razer Blade 15 Base and Asus’ ROG Zephyrus G15 are two key examples.

83% MSI GS66 Stealth review (2021): The gaming sweetspot comes to laptops
Source: Engadget English
MSI's latest GS66 Stealth may look the same as last year's model, but it has a lot more going for it. It's powered by NVIDIA's new RTX 30-series GPUs, and it's one of the first gaming notebooks with a 1440p (or 2K) screen. That's a big deal. For the last few years, laptop gamers could choose from low-resolution, 1080p screens with fast refresh rates, or 4K displays that pack in a ton of pixels, but also require a ton of power to render games.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,560 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2070 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified at 80 Watts and therefore significantly lower than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile (115 Watt).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 3,072 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified between 80 and 90 Watts with different clock speeds.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA106 chip with 3072 cores. Available in different versions with a TDP from 60 to 115 Watt.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. At the time of the launch in early 2021, the 3080 is the fastest laptop graphics card on the market.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.
