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.

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.
