MSI Katana GF76 12UGS review: Is one of the most affordable RTX 3070 Ti gaming laptops worth it?

Scrimpy plastic sword. Both the 15-inch and the 17-inch versions of the Katana are some of the most affordable gaming laptops on the market. The powerful hardware of our test configuration with Alder Lake and RTX 3070 Ti can hardly be the reason for this, so where did the manufacturer make the cuts? Our test will find out.

In the comparison portals, the MSI Katana is listed as one of the most affordable gaming laptops. The first is the 17-inch Alder Lake model for 1199 Euros (~$1249) for the version with an RTX 3050 Ti. The model with an RTX 3060 starts from 1349 Euros (~$1406), and our test configuration with the RTX 3070 Ti will cost you 1949 Euros (~$2031). After the Acer Nitro 5 and the smaller 15-inch sibling, our 17-inch model is the most affordable laptop with an RTX 3070 Ti.

Last year, we tested the predecessor with a Tiger Lake CPU and RTX 3060, and now follows the upgrade to Alder Lake and the Ti GPUs.

Since our database currently lacks affordable 17-inch laptops with RTX 3070 Ti GPUs, we compare the new Katana in addition to its predecessor also with the significantly more expensive Razer Blade 17 top dog, the Aorus 17 XE4, and the 15 and 16-inch Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16 G7 and MSI Vector GP66 12UGS models.

Case - A plastic sword

The materials used in the case of the Katana are solely plastic. The display and its frame produce some powerful creaking noises even if you only warp it slightly, particularly in the top corners, and we immediately start worrying about the panel. The base, on the other hand, gives a robust impression. Otherwise, the workmanship appears to be good, and we do not notice any obvious gaps.

The hinges are able to open the display up to 180 degrees. They are only slightly weak in the last third of the opening range but otherwise hold the display in place fairly well.

The design is kept rather simple, other than the colorful keyboard illumination and the stylized lettering on the keys. There is a large notch in the front of the base, allowing you to easily open the laptop with one hand. 

Considering the included hardware, the Katana is fairly compact, and the plastic case also makes it appear lighter than the Blade 17, even though the difference is only about 100 g (~3,5 oz). Although the Aorus is minimally thicker, it is almost 20 mm (~0.8 in) less deep. The Blade 17 is slimmer and also smaller overall. While the Katana is rather one of the larger gaming laptops, it still didn't turn out too thick.

Equipment - Please update

Even in 2022, MSI continues to equip the Katana with a USB-A 2.0 port, and it also continues to forgo Thunderbolt and an SD card reader. The USB-C port only runs at USB-3.0 speed and of course doesn't offer Power Delivery.

The power plug doesn't fit very tightly in our model and can also slip out slowly when moving the laptop. The fit of some USB-C devices is not optimal in the corresponding port.

The external, USB-C connected M.2 case of the author has some problems with several laptops such as the MSI Katana or also the MSI Pulse GL66 but works fine with other laptops. Apparently, some plugs cannot be inserted deep enough into the ports, which leads to the SSD being provided with power but not being recognized reliably by Windows and continuously disconnecting. The author had to use a USB-C-to-A adapter and run the SSD via a USB-A port.

The fact that the ports for potentially thick and stiff cables such as HDMI and LAN are on the right side, where a mouse might also be used, is also less than optimal.

Communication

An Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module is used for WLAN communication. In combination with our Asus ROG GT-AXE11000 test router, the module achieves suitably good transfer rates, and the connection is also fairly stable.

Accessories and Warranty

Considering the low price, the lack of any included accessories shouldn't be surprising. As usual with MSI, the warranty period is two years.

Maintenance

The bottom of the case is secured by 13 screws. Since the final one is placed below a sticker seal, we don't want to break it because of our test unit being a loaner. Unfortunately, MSI continues to use sticker seals and thus reserves the option to limit the warranty after improper opening of the device by unqualified users.

However, there shouldn't be too many changes compared to the predecessor, and you can find an image of the opened Katana in the review of the predecessor.

Input Devices - Why is everything so small despite 17 inches?

Keyboard

The keyboard
The keyboard

For a 17-inch laptop, the keys turn out rather small, and squeezed on the right side of the base is also a numpad with incredibly tiny keys. Despite the fact that there is still sufficient space on the left and right side of the keyboard, MSI doesn't use this to increase the key size. In the top row of the Function keys, the keys are only half as tall. The Power button is placed as a regular key in the top right corner of the numpad.

As customary for MSI, strangely the Fn key is placed on the right side, but you can switch its function with the Windows key on the left.

The key stroke is relatively short, but the feedback is noticeable. However, the keys still feel slightly spongy, and the user gets the impression that the keys are only really fixed in the middle and can tilt easily towards their sides. On the other hand, typing tasks still succeed fairly quickly and easily. The typing noise is moderate. 

The key lettering is easily visible, but their font is a little unusual, which is probably supposed to attract gamers. In dark surroundings, the keyboard illumination helps. While there is only a single zone, the light can be dimmed in three steps. It is only illuminated in red.

Touchpad

The touchpad
The touchpad

The touchpad is sufficient but not very large for a 17-inch device (~10.5 x 6.5 cm, ~4.1 x 2.6 in). The surface facilitates sliding of the fingers, and they only get stuck with very slow movements or if the fingers are wet.

The integrated keys also work fairly precisely, but they have an extremely short stroke and appear very crisp. The trigger noises aren't really quiet.

Display - 144 Hz but still no gamer

MSI has decided to use the same Full-HD display from AU Optronics as in the predecessor. Even though this can handle 144 Hz, at an average of 264 nits, the brightness isn't very high. The response times are really weak for a gamer, particularly the more than 40 ms from gray to gray. At 88%, the brightness distribution is still relatively even.

At least, the display has a fairly low black value, which leads to a good contrast.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
26.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.8 ms rise
↘ 12.6 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 62 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.8 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 60 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (33.4 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17490 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

While the matte surface prevents many reflections, the low brightness and rather weak viewing angle stability lead to a limited usability outdoors.

While usually, IPS panels shine in terms of their viewing angle stability, this is less the case for the display of the Katana. From extreme viewing angles, the brightness and colors decrease noticeably in intensity.

Performance - RTX 3070 Ti with 100-Watt limit

The Katana GF76 12U is available in a total of nine configurations. Eight of those use a Core i7-12700H as CPU and only a single model comes with an i5-12500H. The GPU versions start from the RTX 3050 up to the RTX 3070 Ti, including all the currently available RTX models from Nvidia. The display and RAM (2x 8 GB DDR4, also 16 GB) are the same for all models. As SSD size, either 1 TB or 512 GB are available.

Our configuration represents the top end with an RTX 3070 Ti and 1-TB SSD. It should be able to play all the current games in the native FHD resolution smoothly even at maximum detail level.

 

Test Conditions

For the best benchmark results, we use the "Extreme Performance" mode in the MSI Center. While this software allows you to adjust various important system settings, at its first startup, you have to agree to a data privacy statement that asks to send anonymous user data. The adjustment settings include the user profiles, fan control modes, and also general settings such as switching the Fn and Windows key. It also allows you to search for driver updates, but unfortunately they don't install automatically after the download.

The MSI Center takes too long to load for our tastes, and it also happened repeatedly that the fan profile switched back to "Balanced" without any discernable reason after the software was restarted.

MSI uses an Intel Core i7-12700H, which besides the only minimally better i7-12800H represents one of the standard CPUs for current gaming laptops, as long as you are looking for Intel and not AMD. It possesses a total of 14 cores and is able to operate on 20 threads simultaneously. Each of its six P cores are able to run at up to 4.7 GHz in Turbo Boost, and their basic clock speed is 1.7 (E cores) and 2.4 GHz (P cores).

While the 45-Watt CPU should really be able to consume up to 115 watts for a short time period, our test unit only reaches 105 watts for a very short time in the first run. In the following runs, it still reaches 70 to 76 watts, which it is able to maintain relatively well within one run.

With this, the Katane performs at the same level as the competitors, which are also good. The previous Katana is surpassed by about 30%.

In the Cinebench R15 test, the performance is reduced by about 40% in battery operation.

Storage Solution

MSI uses an NVMe SSD from Micron with 1 TB. While the storage is already connected via PCIe 4.0, the speed is still more at a high PCIe 3.0 level, so that the models in the more expensive competitors are often faster. On the other hand, the constant performance is very good, ending up on a good 12th place in our list of best storage devices.
