Reviews for the MSI Pulse GL66 12UEK
Last year, MSI started a new gaming series with the Pulse. But apparently, a new series even from an experienced manufacturer can still run into some early troubles and reveal the need for optimizations. Our extensive test shows what needs to improve.

All in all, we think the MSI Pulse GL66 is quite suitable for gamers who like to play single-player campaign video games. Compared with other RTX 30 series laptops, it's a cost-effective gaming laptop as long as you're not pursuing the most extreme gaming experience. We believe it can satisfy the needs of any gamer but the price tag is another story. For your information, the price is RM7599 which might be a bit expensive for some Malaysian gamers. But for what is worth, the cool black "mech" design, an effective cooling system and smooth gameplay for most games does make up for it. It's just too bad that recent inflation has caused this price spike for nearly every gaming laptop in the market.

The MSI Pulse GL66 has it where it counts and prioritises performance and upgradability while eschewing frippery to keep costs at a modest pace. For what you pay for, you’re getting the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i9 H-series CPU and a fairly beefy RTX 3060 for RM7,599. If you’re looking for a solid laptop for gaming and schoolwork that can handle content creation tasks, this won’t let you down. If you’re keen, MSI Malaysia is holding a limited-time Back to School promotion that is from 1st July until 14th August 2022 for the Pulse GL66 which will see the MSI Pulse GL66 configuration that we reviewed going for just RM7,299 which is an RM300 discount off the original price. You can also acquire it with similar specifications save for having just 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD for RM6,299 (original price RM6,599). You can also get in on the ground floor with a variant that has an 11th Gen i7-11800H, an NVIDIA RTX 3050 with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM, a more modest 144Hz 1080p display, 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD for just RM4,699 (original price RM5,399).

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

75.9%: 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.
