Reviews for the MSI Katana GF76 12UD-041

70% MSI Katana GF76 review: Decent gaming performance for a reasonable price
Source: Good Gear Guide 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.
