MSI Stealth GS66 (2022) Review - A Thin 15" Gaming Laptop!

80% MSI Stealth GS66 12UGS review
Source: Techradar English
The MSI Stealth GS66 12UGS marks another solid refresh from MSI. Retaining that sleek black metal design and slimline chassis seen in older Stealth models, the 12U series has undergone a substantial upgrade. but it comes at a cost. The 12UGS variant is an incredibly expensive choice for gaming laptops, though for sheer performance power, we rarely found ourselves wanting during this review. For starters, 12UGS packs a stronger performance than its predecessors, which include the MSI GS66 Stealth and MSI Stealth 15M. MSI’s moved away from the previous Intel i7 processors, equipping each 12U model with an Intel Alder Lake i9 processor, 2TB of SSD storage, 32GB RAM and, for the 12UGS specifically, an Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti. Needless to say, it’s pretty beefy where gaming laptops are concerned. There’s no denying you’ll find cheaper gaming laptops elsewhere, but the Stealth GS66 12UGS targets those seeking the highest performance from PC games. It’s pretty easy to carry around too, fitting these impressive specs into a compact package that never felt restrictive.
