Reviews for the MSI Stealth GS66 12UGS

84.5% MSI Stealth GS66 12UGS gaming laptop review: Powerful enough for QHD | Notebookcheck
Besides the RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia is also launching the RTX 3070 Ti at the beginning of 2022. The MSI Stealth GS66 12UGS is the first laptop that we've been allowed to test with this promising, high-end GPU. But just how many FPS will you get on the built-in 240 Hz panel?

MSI Stealth GS66 (12Ux) review – it finally gets a good cooling
Source: Laptop Media English
MSI is at a great advantage for being one of the first manufacturers to ship 12th Gen Intel devices to the market. The difference they make in computational performance is the largest we’ve seen for quite a while. And despite the weird situation with the graphics card not reaching its maximum TGP allowance, it outperforms the Triton 500 SE (PT516-52s) in some games. The I/O is pretty good, with three USB Type-Cs (one is Thunderbolt 4), which can output a DisplayPort signal. Make that a total of four display outputs, since there is an HDMI connector, as well. In addition, you get a couple of fast USB Type-As, and a 2.5G LAN port. Obviously, it supports fast wired connection speeds, but it also happens to feature Wi-Fi 6E for an equally fast wireless connection. Plus, there is an IR face recognition sensor and a fingerprint scanner. So, is this a gaming device? Or is it a content creator’s dream? Well, why not both?

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


84.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
