Reviews for the MSI Katana GF66 11UD-836XFR
The MSI Katana GF66 11UD is a relatively budget gaming laptop with entry-level NVIDIA Ampere mobile discrete graphics. It has very decent performance in games, and the new 11th generation Intel Core i5 mobile processor performs well in CPU-dependent tasks. To find fault here, by and large, it is possible only to the display: yes, it supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz, without which modern gaming screens are already unthinkable, but a frankly narrow color gamut leads to faded and expressionless colors.
