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?

15.60":

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.
