Reviews for the MSI Katana GF76 11UD-050

70% MSI Katana GF76 review: Decent gaming performance for a reasonable price
Source: PC World Australia English
The MSI GF76 Katana is a budget 17-inch gaming laptop with decent CPU performance. The RTX 3050 Ti GPU is a little underpowered for the latest AAA games, but you can still enjoy RTX graphics at a fraction of the cost of a more premium laptop. Although we expected better gaming performance, this laptop is still worth considering, especially if you're on an inflexible budget.

MSI Katana GF76 review – is RTX 3050 Ti the new sweet spot?
Source: Laptop Media English
Before we conclude this review, we would like to remind you that this is one of the most affordable 17-inch gaming notebooks out there. Namely, one that has both Intel’s and NVIDIA’s latest technology inside. Having a low price is a double-edged sword, though. Yes, it can reach a broader audience, but at what cost? Well, the body is made mainly out of plastic (although the build quality is more than decent). The keyboard features only a Red backlight, and can’t be described as something groundbreaking.
