MSI Vector GP76 12UGS review: Gaming laptop on speed

Lightning quick, even the display. Only one thing counts with the new MSI Vector GP76 gaming laptop: speed! A 360 Hz display with a real response time of 4ms (gray to gray), a 150 W TGP Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and an Alder Lake Intel Core i7-12700H all come together in an almost unbeatable package.

With its new Vector series, MSI is introducing two new notebooks to the gaming battlefields this year. The smaller 15-incher already delivers outstanding performance, but what upgrades does the Vector GP76 offer as a direct successor to the GP76 Leopard? Unlike the MSI Alpha, Katana or Pulse, the Vector range is not designed for entry-level or mid-range users, but offers high-end gaming machines with mid-range elements, which is also reflected in the price of around US$ 2,600.

However, a few features are missing compared to the GE series for enthusiasts and the compact GS series. For example, Thunderbolt 4, a card reader and USB-C charging are omitted, alongside a lack of options for QHD or UHD displays, or a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Furthermore, it comes with somewhat slower DDR4 RAM and a smaller battery. Nevertheless, there are many strong features and upgrades that we highlight in this report, such as the 360 Hz fast panel with 4ms response time.

Case: MSI with stable Vector and lots of metal

The MSI Vector GP76, which is only available in "Coral Black", has an extremely sturdy case with a display lid and keyboard area made out of aluminium. Compared to the predecessor model, the case has largely remained the same and has a plastic underside. The Vector is resistant to torsion, including the display, and targeted pressure on the back of the display does not cause any image distortions. Only the bottom of the display frame yields a little to pressure, but this is not a major issue. The screen teeters only slightly. 

The lid can be opened with one hand, while the maximum opening angle of 140 degrees is a little small. The keyboard is well buil into the case and does not bend at all. The surfaces are slightly rough and have a high-quality feel. Some edges are a little sharp due to the gaming design, but are still acceptable. However, since the front edge of the case is connected to the bottom panel, this can loosen or detach a little over time, which spoils the overall impression of quality.

The weight of 2.85kg is acceptable in view of the fact that this is a 17-inch gaming machine with powerful components. The competition offers imperceptibly lighter devices, whereby the 16-inch class, such as the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16, is significantly lighter with a weight of only 2kg and is also the most compact device by far in the comparison field. The difference here is quite significant and definitely worth taking into consideration for mobile gaming. The thickness of 26mm is not bad. Overall, the GP76 is slightly thicker than other comparable 17-inch devices.

Fortunately, some of the ports are located at the back of the device so that the corresponding cables are not visible. A mini DisplayPort with Adaptive Sync is present, along with an HDMI output (4K @120Hz), 2.5-GBit LAN and the proprietary power connector.

On the left side is a Kensington lock, 1x USB-A 3.2 Gen1 (5 GBit/s), 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen2 (10 GBit/s) with DisplayPort functionality. However, Power Delivery and Thunderbolt are lacking. Mobile gaming in the absence of an 800-gram power supply therefore cannot be guranteed. A stronger, external graphics card cannot be used either.

Otherwise, there is a jack connection and two more USB A 3.2 Gen1 ports on the right side of the notebook. There is no SD card reader or fingerprint reader. With an external hard drive, we achieved transfer rates of around 1 GB/s on the fastest port (USB-C at 10GBIt/s), which roughly maxes out the port. The external SSD (USB 3.2 Gen 2x2) achieves twice the transfer rate on a Thunderbolt port.

BIOS

The BIOS can typically be accessed on MSI gaming laptops via the "F1 + DEL" combination. At first sight, there is not much to see, but the key combination of "Shift (right) + CTRL (right) + ALT + F2" unlocks all possible BIOS functions ranging from performance limits, thermal settings to overclock possibilities (at your own risk, of course).

Communication

The screwed Wi-Fi 6-capable module from Intel (AX211) unleashes its full potential with a signal power of around 1.6 GBit/s. Competing laptops with the same or similar WLAN card have similar levels on average. The two Asus laptops are far behind in the comparison field.

In addition, the Vector GP76 has Bluetooth 5.2, but not WWAN, which cannot be retrofitted either.

Accessories

Included in delivery is a 280-watt power supply unit, which delivers 50 more watts than its predecessor. There are no other accessories and recycled materials are not (yet) used in the packaging.

Maintenance

The back of the case can be detached after removing 13 Phillips screws and using a spudger tool. The front edge, which reaches up to the top of the laptop and has lots of hooks, requires some doses of well-applied strength and skill.
Afterwards, one encounters a great deal of copper in the form of 6 heat pipes, including two large fans that can be cleaned. The elements that can be cooled, such as the CPU and GPU, are covered with heat-conducting paste which "overflows" and partly spills onto the circuit board.

The next largest, maintainable component is the 65 Wh battery (screwed). In addition, two M.2 slots with PCIe4x4 specification (RAID 0.1 capable) are provided, which are rounded off by two SODIMMs for up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. As already mentioned, the Wi-Fi module is also replaceable. So overall, the Vector GP76 is maintenance-friendly.

The SteelSeries keyboard, which hasn't changed for generations, offers somewhat smaller but grippy keys with a moderate pressure point and medium travel.

Longer texts can be written without any problems, even if the stroke is a little soft. There are a few things to note about the layout: Like most other keys, the arrow keys are 15x15mm in size, but the Enter key is divided and the right Shift, number block and F keys are smaller. The keyboard thus corresponds to that of the US market with adapted DE labelling. Some function keys also have dual functions.

One advantage is the low noise level. Thanks to anti-ghosting, up to 10 keystrokes are possible at the same time and individual key backlighting can be configured using the "SteelSeries Engine 3" software.

Touchpad

MSI Vector GP76 with small touchpad

The touchpad measures 10.5 x 6.5cm and is thus not the largest, but the gliding quality is very good and works very accurately. However, the integrated click buttons only function with a lot of pressure and do not offer optimal feedback. That said, there are much worse clickpads on the market. 

Display: Rapid 360 Hz and 4ms gray-to-gray on the Vector GP76

Subpixels: Rich, bright & not grainy
Subpixels: Rich, bright & not grainy

The matte, 17.3-inch IPS display in 16:9 format offers a mediocre brightness of 264 cd/m², which proves to be sufficient for indoor use. The 1920x1080 (Full HD) resolution is the only one MSI offers in the Vector series and is sufficiently sharp as long as you don't stick your nose to the display. Images are also very sharp and clear, reinforced by good subpixel quality.

The contrast of 1,096:1 is acceptable, and the good black value of 0.25 results in a rich black. While the comparison field is generally on a similar level, the smaller Vector GP66 (together with its own predecessor) is even brighter at 324 cd/m². However, the Legion 5 Pro and Zephyrus M16 outshine the competition at just under 500 cd/m² and are thus also suitable for outdoor use.

In terms of response times, nothing can compete with the GP76: In addition to the super-fast refresh rate of 360 Hz, a gray to gray signal takes only 4ms and black to white is still a very good 8ms. The competition lies between 15 and 27 ms for gray to gray. Overall, the panel corresponds to the high-end specifications appropriate for gaming. The predecessor uses a 144 Hz panel.

However, there is no internal G-Sync. Adaptive Sync is supported on an external monitor via DisplayPort. PWM flickering was not detected.

* ... smaller is better

The sRGB colour range is covered very well at just under 99%. For DCI-P3 and AdobeRGB, this is 70 to 71%, which is sufficient for this laptop class. The DeltaE value of 2.54 is slightly above the threshold of 2 and therefore roughly in line with the competition.

Calibration improves the values, but the slightly underrepresented blue can only be slightly optimized. The subjective colour perception also tesifies to relatively unadulterated color tones, which appear very rich, but not particularly oversaturated. The ICC file of the calibration is available for download in the window next to the coverage graph.

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
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 3 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 0.692 (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 (36.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21805 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

If you want to enjoy gaming in the fresh air, you have to do it in the shade. More than a LAN party under the pavilion is not possible at a brightness of 264 cd/m², even with a matte screen.

The viewing angles are good on every IPS display, including our test model. No wishes remain unfulfilled here. OLED, for example, offers even better viewing angle stability.

Performance: MSI cranks the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti to the max

In terms of the CPU, interested buyers can decide between the Core i7-12700H or the Intel i9-12900HK. For graphics, there is only the Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti (150 W) and the RTX 3080 (non-Ti, 165 W). The RAM always comes as 2x 8GB DDR4-3200 ex factory (2x 16 GB in other regions of the world).

The approximately 25% faster DDR5 RAM (see below: AIDA comparison table) is reserved for MSI's high-end classes. However, this has no negative impact on gaming and professional graphics applications, for which the Vector GP76 is intended. Also standard is a 1 TB PCIe4x4 SSD, whose performance is tested below.

Test Conditions

We first tested the MSI Vector GP76 in Auto mode. Of course, we also tested the performance in Extreme Performance mode, but in the middle of it we encountered the following problem with the fan control:

The fans only functioned at a very low speed even under full load, which led to overheating of the system with subsequent severe throttling and even to the point that the system was unusable. We are already familiar with this error from MSI gaming laptops, which was previously resolved through BIOS and EC updates.

Since we were already using the latest BIOS at this point, we were able to temporarily fix the problem by pressing the "Turbo Fan" button twice, but it occurred again a little later, so we were unable to complete the tests in Extreme Performance mode. 

However, the mode has no influence on pure CPU performance, while about 7% more performance is possible in gaming. The Witcher 3 and PCMark 10 still managed to run under Extreme Performance mode. You can also take a look at the MSI Vector GP66 that we recently reviewed, which was tested fully in Extreme Performance mode and generated very similar values. The GPU benchmarks were also performed in discrete GPU mode.

MSI Center:

The MSI Center offers a number of settings in addition to the four "Extreme Performance", "Balanced", "Silent" and "Super Battery" modes, such as the MUX switch and a function that allows for switching to a 60 Hz refresh rate in battery mode to save energy.

Processor

MSI Vector GP76 CPU Processor 2022
CPU - MSI Vector GP76

The Core i7-12700H is about twice as fast as its predecessor under sustained load and is not inferior to the Core i9-12900H. Only Lenovo's Legion 5 Pro is faster, since it does not have a TDP lock and can consume 127 watts continuously. The Core i7 in the Vector GP76, on the other hand, is downregulated from 100 watts to 45 watts after a short time, which the Cinebench R15 loop shows. Performance is thus reduced by 20%.

The clock frequency of the performance cores is a stable 3.7 GHz and temperatures are in cooler territory at around 74°C. In terms of pure processor load, the cooling system has plenty of room for improvement. In Extreme Performance mode, the CPU treats itself to 70 watts, which does not really improve results, at least not in Cinebench R15.

In battery mode, the CPU TDP, typical for laptops with a high combined TDP, is severely limited at 15 watts. Accordingly, the Intel processor's performance drops by a whopping 40% (See CB15 screenshots). However, this is still 45% faster than the full performance of the predecessor, and if you look at the value under sustained load, the loss is only around 25%.

AMD's 45-watt CPUs, such as the Ryzen 7 5800H in the Asus ROG Strix G17, are generally somewhat slower, but they hardly display any performance loss when running on battery power.

DPC Latencies

The DPC latencies show the delay from input to display: the system here proves unsuitable for real-time video and audio editing because the latencies are very high with a delay of 1,907ms. The ACPI driver is the culprit here. However, this can be improved after a BIOS update.

Fortunately, there were no dropped frames during YouTube 4K playback and CPU load remained low. However, the integrated Intel GPU remains a little occupied with a load of 23%.

Two slots for M.2 PCIe4x4 SSDs
Two slots for M.2 PCIe4x4 SSDs

The 1 TB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD from Micron uses the latest PCIe4x4 standard, but this should been seen as a budget SSD that only achieves PCIe 3.0 speeds.

Nevertheless, two faster hard drives can be retrofitted and also in RAID (0,1) configuration. The comparison field offers faster SSDs but at least the predecessor is clearly surpassed.
