Reviews for the MSI Katana GF66 11UC-228

MSI Katana GF66 Review Philippines: Budget RTX Laptop?
Source: Unbox English
Our MSI Katana GF66 review for the Philippine market is a pretty mixed bag. On the one hand, it’s pretty competitively priced (considering the other options at the market as of press time) at a hair below Php 70K for the unit we reviewed. Its screen is fairly ok, and anyone looking for a laptop to play competitive FPS games will be happy with the fast 144Hz refresh rate. On the other hand, the RTX 3050 GPU struggles to deliver 60FPS gaming with modern titles at max graphical settings, which means you’ll have to turn down the graphics on your favorite games to get that 60FPS target. Of course, you can leverage the power of NVIDIA’s ray-tracing tech, though obviously, not all games support it.
