MSI Katana GF66 11UD is an example of a well-balanced gaming laptop that is capable of offering a sufficient level of performance for the segment, albeit not a record. At the same time, it managed not to fail in many other aspects. Thus, the user has his hands free for the future upgrade of individual internal components, the laptop has a sufficient number of ports, as well as a keyboard suitable for all tasks. Of course, the situation with the display turned out to be twofold. On the one hand, the refresh rate of 144 Hz is a nice feature of the device, but the picture quality itself is average, which is why the laptop can not be recommended for more or less substantial work with images or videos, if we are not talking about an external monitor, of course. The rest makes it a quite normal, versatile device. Well, those, who feels that bundle of Intel Core i5-11400H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti video card is not enough, can always consider options MSI Katana GF66 with more powerful graphics adapters. As we found out, there are a lot of them and it will be possible to pick up something more powerful.

76%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
