MSI Titan GT77 12UHS Laptop Review: Alder Lake-HX poster child with unhindered desktop-class performance

The Titans have arrived. After a two-year hiatus, the MSI Titan GT77 signifies the company resurrecting its iconic flagship laptop lineup. The Titan GT77 is powered by the Core i9-12900HX, a 175 W RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, and other niceties including plenty of NVMe storage, DDR5-4800 RAM, and a highly tactile Cherry MX mechanical keyboard — almost everything that enthusiast gamers aspire for. The Titan GT77 is a covetable desktop replacement indeed, but it is not without certain shortcomings.

The MSI Titan has been the company's flagship lineup till the Intel 10th gen-powered Titan GT76 series in 2020. In the 11th gen, MSI chose to limit its flagship offering to the GE76 Raider 11UH. The GE76 Raider gets an Alder Lake upgrade in 2022 as well with the GE76 Raider 12U. However, Intel's introduction of the Alder Lake-HX platform meant that MSI now has an incentive to revive the iconic Titan-class of laptops. 

This year's MSI Titan GT77 12U Series seeks to be a holistic package that offers almost everything that an enthusiast gamer would wish for. Desktop-class CPU? Check. Maxed-out memory? Check. The fastest GPU possible? Check. All the storage you can fill up? Check. A Cherry MX mechanical keyboard? Check. A high refresh-rate display? Check and double check.

Though MSI has officially unveiled the HX lineup in India, these laptops are yet to be made available in retail in the country at the time of writing. Our MSI Titan GT77 12UHS review sample was provided by Intel India and is powered by the Core i9-12900HX, 64 GB DDR5-4800 RAM, a 175 W RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, 4x 1 TB Samsung PM9A1 NVMe SSDs, a 17.3-inch 360 Hz FHD panel, and a 99.9 WHr battery. According to Intel, this configuration will set you back by about US$4,999 (converted actual approx. ₹3,96,617).

There's also a more affordable model of the Titan GT77 featuring a Core i7-12800HX and an RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU for about US$3,100. Our FHD 360 Hz model is not yet available online on MSI or Amazon and all currently available configurations make use of a 120 Hz UHD screen, a review of which will follow soon.

In this review, we set to evaluate the MSI Titan GT77 and see how Intel's new desktop-class Alder Lake-HX processors aid in the iconic Titan's revival and the experience of using what is potentially the most powerful gaming laptop on the market.

Case: Significantly slimmer than the Titan GT76

The Titan GT77 does carry over elements of the older Titan GT76's design language but with some notable changes. The laptop sports an all-black design that is only 23 mm thick compared to the Titan GT76's 42 mm thickness. MSI packs most of the processing and cooling wizardry towards the rear protrusion of the chassis, so it does give some scope for the manufacturer to reduce the overall thickness.

The chassis is primarily plastic but feels premium-enough and helps keep the device's weight in check. The aesthetic is quite pleasing for an enthusiast gaming laptop without too much of a gamer eccentricity at first glance. Be prepared to wipe your fingerprints often, though.

The display lid cover gets an aluminum finish and now has an MSI logo that shines in glorious RGB. The lid can be opened with one finger without the device sliding. There is some flex observed with both the lid and the keyboard deck, but it is not apparent in regular use.

Unlike the GE76 Raider, there is no RGB light bar on the front. Instead, MSI has fitted about 27 RGB LEDs at the rear exhaust vents. There's also a short, parallel RGB strip on the rear intake vents just behind the display. Two more exhausts are present, each on either side of the laptop.

The bottom panel is probably the weakest part of the chassis and its construction seems subpar compared to the rest of the casing. This can probably be overlooked considering that you won't be interacting with the bottom cover as often. It does, however, offer a good number of air intake vents.

Overall, the MSI Titan GT77 sports a solid construction with welcome portability improvements compared to previous Titans.

Connectivity: Adequate ports selection with full-size SD card reader and Wi-Fi 6E

The Titan GT77 offers a slightly different but adequate port selection compared to the Titan GT76. Moreover, it implements the latest connectivity standards you would expect to find in an enthusiast gaming laptop in 2022.

Towards the left, we have MSI's proprietary DC-in port, 2x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports, a full-size UHS-III SD Express card reader, and a combo audio jack. There is no separate microphone-in port offered this time. On the right, we have another USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A port, 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports, a mini-DisplayPort-out, HDMI-out that supports up to 4K 120 Hz or 8K 60 Hz, and a 2.5 GbE RJ-45 port.

The ports are conveniently placed and do not hinder peripheral connectivity. There is no Kensington lock slot available.

SD Card Reader

The Titan GT77 finally offers a full-size SD card slot, which is a welcome development. The card reader is perceivably faster than the one in the Raider GE77 HX 12UHS but trails behind others in the competition.

The Killer AX1675i Wi-Fi card offers good networking performance
The Killer AX1675i Wi-Fi card offers good networking performance

Our Titan GT77 unit came fitted with a Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX1675i WLAN card. Wi-Fi performance is generally above class average in both the 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands with minimal dips in throughput when tested with our reference Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 router. 

We observed that the AX1675i's 6 GHz performance does not seem to offer any tangible benefit over 5 GHz in terms of average throughput. However, if you do have a 6E-capable router, using this band may help with increased peak throughput rates.

Webcam

It's not unusual to find abysmal webcams in gaming laptops, but the Titan GT77's 720p shooter performs rather poorly for a 2022 device. A much-improved FHD webcam is available in the GE76 Raider 12U.

As evident in our ColorChecker Passport and test chart images below, color accuracy is rather poor with lots of noise and an overall lack of sharpness even under bright ambient light. There is no physical privacy shutter available, but the webcam can be toggled on/off using a keyboard shortcut or via MSI Center.

Security

The Titan GT77 offers both IR camera and fingerprint-based biometrics compatible with Windows Hello, which is a rarity in gaming laptops. Both forms of biometrics are easy to enroll and are quite fast and responsive.

Additionally, a TPM 2.0 module is also present.

Accessories

Since this is a custom unit seeded by Intel, we did not find any additional accessories in the box apart from the massive 330 W power brick.

Maintenance

There is no maintenance hatch provided. The bottom panel can be opened after removing 11 PH1 screws, but it does take some effort to fully pry it open from the rest of the chassis.

Inside, we find quite a busy arrangement of parts. In true Titan style, the cooling system is massive with four fans, seven heatpipes, and six exhausts.

All four SSD slots in our unit came occupied with 1 TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe drives. Four sticks of 16 GB DDR5-4800 memory each are present below the aluminum cover — you can cram up to 128 GB of DDR5-4800 memory in here.

The 99.9 WHr battery can be removed for replacement. The Killer AX1675i WLAN card, NVMe SSDs, and DDR5 memory can all be upgraded.

Warranty

Depending on the region, MSI offers a standard one-year warranty or two-year warranty for its gaming laptops along with global travel insurance. Since ours is a custom unit, it did not come with any warranty information.

Input Devices: Delightful Cherry MX keyboard and large touchpad

Keyboard

The SteelSeries keyboard with Cherry MX Ultra Low Profile mechanical switches presents a great typing experience with excellent tactile feedback, fast response, and a crisp typing sound. All keys can be individually lit, and the SteelSeries GG software allows configuring all kinds of RGB lighting effects and macro shortcuts. 

However, only the main typing area uses Cherry MX mechanical keys. The function keys, arrow keys, and the numpad all seem to make do with conventional membrane switches. The location of the Fn key might take some time getting used to if you are new to MSI laptops. Pressing the Fn key lights up the additional functions alone on the F1-F12 keys, which helps with easy legibility in dark environments.

The Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys are available only on the numpad and require disengaging the Num Lock if you wish to use them. The arrow keys are of decent size, but the lack of mechanical keys here is a bummer if you are into racing games. It is important that the keyboard area is kept relatively clean as dust or food particles can easily get lodged under the keys and pose issues with actuation.

Touchpad

The touchpad is a step-up from what we had seen in the Titan GT76. It now sports a buttonless design and measures 13 x 8.2 cm, thus enabling effortless gliding.

The touchpad clicks relatively effortlessly and supports Windows Precision gestures.

Display: 360 Hz FHD panel with low response times and buggy color software

Our Titan GT77 unit came equipped with a 360 Hz FHD panel. The Titan GT77 can currently be configured only with a 120 Hz UHD panel, but it is likely that the company will also offer a 360 Hz FHD option down the line.

This display does not offer any form of HDR or G-Sync support. At the time of testing, True Color only supported sRGB and a few other blue light reduction tweaks. Now, MSI has updated the app to include AdobeRGB and Display P3 color spaces as well.

That being said, using True Color on this laptop can be a bit irksome. There is a bug in the app that does not allow it to play well with the latest Intel iGPU drivers. Updating the Intel graphics drivers whitewashes all colors and makes the entire display look extremely unpleasant. Thankfully, MSI acknowledges the issue and directs you to a link for remediation. Basically, all you need to do is to downgrade the Intel iGPU drivers to an older version. In our testing, we found version 30.0.101.1994 to work just fine. Switching from MSHybrid to discrete graphics mode is another workaround.

Individual pixel sizes seem rather large given that this is just a 127 PPI display. We observed light bleeding at the corners under long exposure.

Brightness distribution is decent at 79%, but the contrast ratio of 700:1 is just about average. Subjectively, the Titan GT77's display offers a decent viewing experience if your primary use case is gaming.

Since the Titan GT77 is aimed primarily at enthusiast gamers, the color space coverage does not really elicit any exuberance. The sRGB gamut coverage of 98.9% is good and 73% of AdobeRGB should still bode well for non-professional content creation. The SKU with a UHD panel offers vastly improved AdobeRGB and Display P3 coverages.

Color accuracy is not too shabby out-of-the-box with an average grayscale Delta E of 3.3 and an average ColorChecker Delta E of 2.1. We could further tighten the average grayscale Delta E to 1.2 and the average ColorChecker Delta E to 1.58 with our standardized color calibration routine using the X-rite i1Basic Pro 3 spectrophotometer and the Calman Calibration Software from Portrait Displays.

The Titan GT77's Sharp SHP1544 panel offers very good response times. It obviously cannot match the ultra-low response times offered by the Raider GE67 HX 12UGS's Samsung OLED panel, but it is on par with the competition.

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
5.28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.32 ms rise
↘ 2.96 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
3.03 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.28 ms rise
↘ 1.75 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. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.9 ms).
50% grey to 80% grey response time increases to 9.73 ms with overdrive off
50% grey to 80% grey response time increases to 9.73 ms with overdrive off

We noted a combined 5.28 ms while transitioning from 100% black to 100% white. The panel uses overdrive by default as evident from the "horn" in the oscilloscope pattern. This results in a fast 3.03 ms 50% grey to 80% grey response time.

We observed that this value can rise to 9.73 ms with overdrive off. 

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 ≤ 100 % brightness setting

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.

We did not observe any PWM flickering across all tested brightness levels, so those long gaming marathons should not cause much eye strain.

For more information, refer to our article "Why Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is such a headache", and also check out our PWM Ranking Table for PWM frequency comparison across all reviewed devices.

Outdoor viewing is manageable as long as there's not too much sunlight falling directly on the display. We observed loss of brightness and color information at extreme viewing angles.

Performance: Chart-topping Core i9-12900HX and RTX 3080 Ti combo

Our test Titan GT77 12UHS unit is powered by the Intel Core i9-12900HX processor and a 175 w Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU. There's also a Titan GT77 12UGS SKU powered by the Core i9-12900HX but with a 150 W RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU. MSI is also offering a Titan GT77 powered by the Core i7-12800HX and the RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU.

 
 

Testing Conditions

As is standard for MSI laptops, the MSI Center app is the go-to place for all kinds of performance adjustments. Given the nature of the beast, we chose to go with the Extreme Performance profile that allows the Core i9-12900HX to operate at a PL1 (processor base power) of 125 W and a PL2 (maximum turbo power) of 200 W.

MSI Center allows MUX switching between MSHybrid and discrete GPU modes. We went with the discrete GPU option so to allow the RTX 3080 Ti to fully flex its muscles. There is no Advanced Optimus available, so you will have to restart the laptop each time the MUX is manually changed.

The choice of performance modes has a significant impact on noise levels as we shall see shortly.

The table below illustrates how the PL1 (processor base power) and PL2 (maximum turbo power) vary in different performance modes. The Balanced and Extreme Performance modes are similar for the most part, though the latter allows for a higher PL1.

While the Balanced profile should suffice for most tasks including gaming, we recommend opting for the Extreme Performance mode to extract the maximum possible juice from the processor.

Performance Mode PL1 (PBP) / Tau PL2 (MTP) / Tau
Silent 30 W / 56 s 30 W / 2.44 ms
Balanced 100 W / 56 s 200 W / 2.44 ms
Extreme Performance 125 W / 56 s 200 W / 2.44 ms

Processor

The Core i9-12900HX offers desktop-class performance
The Core i9-12900HX offers desktop-class performance

The Core i9-12900HX is a 16-core 24-thread Alder Lake-HX part with 8P cores and 8E cores. Alder Lake-HX is essentially a mobile version of desktop Alder Lake-S in a BGA socket. This is also the first mobile platform to offer PCIe Gen5 support.

The Core i9-12900HX comes unlocked and you can actually enter MSI's hidden BIOS controls (press Right Shift + Right Ctrl + Left Alt + F2) to undervolt or overclock the CPU. However, the stock power settings already max out the available thermal headroom as evident from the stress tests below.

In terms of overall CPU performance, the Titan GT77 tops the chart matched only by the Raider GE77 HX 12 UHS. We find that the Core i9-12900HX is not too far behind the average desktop Core i9-12900K in most CPU tests.

MSI's Cooler Boost Titan is able to ensure that the Core i9-12900HX does not throttle under load as evidenced by consistent performance in the Cinebench R15 multi-core loop test.

The following graph illustrates how important CPU parameters vary during a Cinebench R15 multi-core loop test. Though the Titan GT77's Core i9-12900HX is configured to operate at up to 200 W PL2, we find that the peak value is about 165 W. The P-cores can boost up to 4.8 GHz while the E-cores operate at the 3.5 GHz mark.

We noticed a bug in the MSI Center app that always reverts the profile to Extreme Performance whenever a CPU-bound benchmark such as Cinebench is launched. This limited our ability to run the same loop in other performance profiles, such as Balanced, Silent, or Super Battery. Hopefully, MSI can fix this in a future software update.

The Core i9-12900HX in the Aorus 17X XES ties with that of the Titan GT77 in single-core tests but trails behind in multi-core. This is likely due to the lower power limits in the Aorus notebook. The Core i7-12800HX in the Raider GE67 HX 12UGS is right on the Core i9-12900HX's heels with just single-digit percentage performance deltas in most CPU tests.

The Core i7-12800HX-powered Titan GT77 SKU could, therefore, be a wise investment if you are looking to save some cash with negligible performance sacrifice.

Multi-core performance drops by about 37.2% on battery.
