MSI Pulse GL76 laptop review: 105 W TGP GeForce RTX 3070 graphics

Just performance, hold the extras. If you don't mind giving up some auxiliary features, then the Pulse GL76 can deliver when it comes to performance and display quality especially for its $1200 to $1400 USD asking price. Expect more sales to come as we approach the launch of mobile GeForce 40 laptops.

The Pulse GL76 is a midrange MSI gaming laptop in between the cheaper Katana or Sword series and more expensive GE Raider or GT Titan series. It is essentially the 17.3-inch version of the smaller 15.6-inch Pulse GL66. The 2021 and 2022 GL76 models sport identical chassis designs.

Our unit in review is a higher-end configuration with the 12th gen Core i7-12700H CPU, 105 W GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, and 360 Hz 1080p IPS display for approximately $1300 USD retail. Other SKUs are available with slower display refresh rates, GeForce RTX 3050/3050 Ti/3060 GPUs, or the Core i5-12500H CPU instead.

Competitors to the Pulse GL76 include other midrange 17.3-inch gaming laptops like the Acer Nitro 5, Asus TUF series, HP Victus series, or the Dell G series.

Case — No Fancy Colors or LEDs

The chassis is mostly plastic much like on all budget to midrange gaming laptops from MSI. It lacks the luxurious touches, flashy LEDs, and smoother feel of higher-end models like the MSI GE77 or Razer Blade 17 for a more bland impression. This shouldn't be surprising as appearance is one of the first things to get the axe when cutting costs on budget to midrange gaming models.

Chassis rigidity is thankfully not compromised. While the plastic surfaces feel cheaper to the touch than on a GE, GS, or GT model, they are nonetheless fairly sturdy and resistant to twists or depressions even down the keyboard center or outer lid. There are no major creaking issues, either. However, the hinges could have been stiffer at wider angles for a better sense of longevity.

The system is lighter than expected especially for a 17.3-inch gaming laptop. At 2.6 kg, it is lighter than the Razer Blade 17, Asus ROG Strix Scar 17, and Acer Predator Helios 300 by a few hundred grams each. The weight advantage is likely due to the noticeably shorter length of the GL76 chassis design. It's a tad bit wide however, but the weight savings makes up for the slightly longer footprint.

Connectivity — Limited For the Size

Port options are more limited when compared to other midrange gaming laptops like the Dell G16, Acer Nitro 5, or Asus TUF G17. The most important omission here is the lack of Thunderbolt support whereas all three aforementioned alternatives carry it. This is likely a conscious effort from MSI to encourage users to consider the higher-end GE, GS, or GT series instead.

DisplayPort-over-USB is not supported. Our test unit would not recognize any of our external monitors via USB-C.

Communication

An Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. Wi-Fi 6E is not included likely to save on costs, but an end-user upgrade is nonetheless straightforward. Performance is still steady with no notable issues when paired to our Asus AXE11000 router.

Webcam

The integrated 720p webcam produces muddy pictures with poor colors. A non-gaming alternative like the HP Spectre is recommended if camera quality is important.

A digital camera kill switch is tied to the F7 key while Windows Hello is not supported.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 13 easy-to-remove Philips screws. However, keep in mind that a factory seal sticker must be broken in order to do so. MSI continues to be one of the very few major manufacturers to have a factory seal sticker for even simple upgrades like RAM or storage.

Once inside, users will have direct access to 2x PCIe4 SSD slots, 2x SODIMM slots, WLAN module, battery, and cooling solution.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the retail box beyond the AC adapter and paperwork. A standard one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — OK Keyboard, Spongy Clickpad

Keyboard

The GL76 shares the same keyboard and typing experience as on the GL66 despite their form factor differences. Thus, the short key travel and passable feedback on the GL66 apply here on the GL76 as well. It's unfortunate that MSI didn't better utilize the larger 17.3-inch form factor by increasing the size of the numpad and arrow keys as they are smaller, spongier, and more cramped when compared to the larger QWERTY keys. This trait is shared with the Asus TUF Gaming F17.

A single-zone RGB backlight comes standard with no per-key RGB options. All keys and symbols are illuminated.

Touchpad

The clickpad is relatively small at 10.5 x 6.7 cm, but it is at least slightly larger than the 10.5 x 6 cm clickpad on the Dell G16. Its plastic surface tends to stick when gliding at medium or slower speeds which can make cursor control a bit bumpy at times. Furthermore, feedback when clicking on the surface is spongy for a very unsatisfying feel. You'll definitely want a proper external mouse handy whenever possible.

Display — 1080p Only

There are just two panel options for the 2022 GL76 as listed below. 1080p is the only resolution option for now whereas the 2021 model had a QHD SKU.

  • 144 Hz, 1080p, 60% sRGB, IPS
  • 360 Hz, 1080p, 100% sRGB, IPS

The 360 Hz panel has much faster black-white response times than the 144 Hz panel. It is also the same Sharp LQ173M1JW08 IPS panel that MSI also utilizes on its flagship Titan GT77. We recommend avoiding the 144 Hz option as its limited color space is a good indicator of a very cheap panel.

Image quality is excellent and buttery smooth because of the insanely fast refresh rate. Keep in mind that it's not as sharp as most Ultrabooks or smaller 15.6-inch gaming laptops due to the relatively low PPI. This particular panel prioritizes responsiveness and frame rates over resolution.

The display is not calibrated out of the box. Average grayscale and color DeltaE values would improve significantly from 6.3 and 4.12 to just 1.4 and 0.98, respectively, after a proper calibration with an X-Rite colorimeter. We recommend applying our ICM profile above to better exploit the full sRGB coverage of the panel.

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
11.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.8 ms rise
↘ 4.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 25 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.2 ms rise
↘ 2.4 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 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 18205 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The matte display is bright enough for use under shade, but it is otherwise not designed for brighter outdoor conditions. A few gaming laptops, such as the Razer Blade 17 OLED, have brighter 500-nit displays for easier readability outdoors.

We set our unit to Performance mode via Windows and Extreme Performance mode via MSI Center with the dGPU active prior to running any performance benchmarks below. Fan mode was also set to Auto. Users should become familiar with MSI Center as it is the control hub for MSI-specific updates, performance profiles, hardware monitoring, and more as shown by the screenshots below.

There is no Advanced Optimus or MUX support on the GL76 series.

CPU performance is excellent with multi-thread results that are roughly 10 percent faster than the average laptop in our database equipped with the same Core i7-12700H CPU. It is overall within just a few percentage points of the Core i9-12900H in the much more expensive Alienware x15 R2.

Opting for the lower-end Core i5-12500H configuration instead of our Core i7 one would result in a multi-thread performance deficit of about 15 percent.

Storage Devices — Up To Two NVMe SSDs

Our unit ships with a 1 TB Micron 3400 PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD instead of the more common 1 TB Samsung PM9A1 likely to save on costs. Transfer rates are just ever-so-slightly slower by about 10 percent on average. We're more impressed by the drive's ability to maintain very high transfer rates of over 6400 MB/s for extended periods without a heat spreader.
