MSI Titan GT77 12UHS 4K review: Elite amongst UHD DTR laptops

True to its name. The MSI Titan GT77 is one of the best-performing laptops right now. The Core i9-12900HX and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti allow for 4K gaming, video editing and rendering. After recently reviewing a Titan GT77 with an FHD panel, we have now got our hands on the top-spec model featuring a 4K display.

Gamers and creatives are both part of the target audience of the MSI Titan GT77 12UHS - a desktop replacement (DTR) laptop. The high-end specs (Core i9-12900HX, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop and 64 GB of RAM) push the laptop's price to around 5,600 Euro (US$5,980). The display is the main difference between this device and its FHD sibling model that we recently reviewed: the current review unit has a 4K panel on board. Some of its competitors include the Schenker XMG Ultra 17, the Razer Blade 17 and the Alienware x17 R2.

Because this device and its FHD counterpart are built identically, you can read our review of the MSI Titan GT77 12UHS (Core i9, FHD) for more information on the chassis, input devices and speakers.

Display - Bright panel with high DCI-P3 coverage

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The matt 4K panel (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) on the current review unit delivers significantly higher peak brightness than the FHD display on its sibling model (401 cd/m² vs. 275.1 cd/m²).

Nevertheless, there is still room for improvement in terms of contrast (871:1 vs. 700:1): both displays fall short of what we consider good values (> 1,000:1). Whilst the two panels are highly responsive, the FHD model offers a considerably higher refresh rate (120 Hz vs. 360 Hz). We didn't observe any PWM flicker during our measurements.

* ... smaller is better

The 4K display covers almost the entire sRGB (99.8%) and DCI-P3 (97%) colour space and up to 86% of AdobeRGB. The FHD panel on the sibling model is unable to keep up in this regard (sRGB: 97%, AdobeRGB: 73%, DCI-P3: 71%). This means the 4K panel is the best option if colour accuracy is important to you.

The screens already have good colour reproduction right out of the box: the UHD and FHD displays meet the desired value (Delta E < 3) with their non-perceptible colour differences of 2.47 and 2.1 respectively. Calibrating the screens made their greyscale reproduction more balanced and decreased the colour differences to 0.66 and 1.58 respectively. In the infobox for each display, you can find a link to download the colour profiles created by us for free.

Note: The MSI True Color software allows you to adjust the colours to better suit a colour gamut or a defined usage scenario. We chose the preset "Display P3".

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
5.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.5 ms rise
↘ 3.6 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.2 ms rise
↘ 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.9 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 19601 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers a stable viewing angle and thus can be easily view from any position. The display is also very readable outdoors.

Inaccurate colour reproduction due to software issues

Certain combinations of True Color software and iGPU driver may lead to inaccurate reproduction of images. When this happens, all the colours shown will appear distorted and whitened. MSI recommends fully deinstalling and then reinstalling both components. After giving it a try, we found that this method solves the issue.

Performance - Ampere and Alder Lake provide lots of oomph.

With the Titan GT77 12UHS, MSI has a very powerful 17.3-inch laptop in its product range that performs well in all kinds of demanding usage scenarios.

Test conditions

You can switch between four performance profiles using the preinstalled MSI Center (see pictures) or by pressing the key combination Fn+F7. If the higher-level, AI-based "Smart Auto" feature is activated (as in our case), the MSI Center will automatically choose the appropriate profile for the current situation.

We tested the FHD model with the dGPU mode active. In contrast, Nvidia Optimus was enabled during our review of the current device. Therefore, the measurement results may not always be directly comparable.

Processor

The Core i9-12900HX processor (Alder Lake) consists of eight performance cores (Hyper-Threading, 2.3 to 5 GHz) and eight efficiency cores (no Hyper-Threading, 1.7 to 3.6 GHz), giving a total of 24 threads.

In Cinebench R15, the CPU completed both the multi-thread test (P-cores: 4.4 GHz, E-cores: 3.3 GHz) and the single-thread test (P-cores: 500 MHz to 5 GHz, E-cores: 400 MHz to 3.6 GHz) at high clock speeds. It performed slightly slower on battery power.

The Cinebench 15 loop test revealed that the CPU is able to run at high clock speeds continuously. Using the "Extreme Performance" profile caused the performance to be marginally more stable.

System performance

The GT77 doesn't lack computing power - this is immediately obvious just by looking at its specifications. The 17-inch laptop can handle gaming, rendering and much more with ease. The RAM transfer rates are in line with the usual performance level of DDR4-4800 memory. The system also obtained good results in PCMark.

The laptop gives you options to further increase its system performance: for example, only two of the four RAM slots are occupied.

DPC latency

Our standardised latency monitoring test (Internet browsing, 4K video playback, Prime95 high load) revealed some issues with DPC latency. The system doesn't seem to be well-suited to real-time video and audio processing. Future software updates may improve or even worsen this problem.

Mass storage

The Titan can hold up to four M.2 2280 SSDs (3x PCIe 4, 1x PCIe 5). The included 2 TB Samsung SSD (PCIe 4) is able to provide excellent transfer speeds.

In the FHD model, the SSD with the operating system (also made by Samsung) suffers from performance dips due to thermal throttling. Perhaps the three other SSDs installed in the laptop are preventing optimal airflow. The SSD in our current review unit doesn't exhibit any performance dips.
