New details emerge on MSI Titan GT77 including prices, 75 W Core i9-12900HX CPU, dimensions, ports, and availability
Teased earlier last week, we now have concrete details on what to expect out of the GT76 successor.
Perhaps the most notable aspect of the GT77 is its significantly thinner design at just 23.1 mm compared to 42 mm on the GT76. Weight has subsequently been cut from 4.2 kg on the outgoing model to 3.1 kg on the newer model. Though still not as thin as the GS77 or Razer Blade 17, it's a massive improvement to portability nonetheless especially when considering that the chassis will be targeting a very high TGP ceiling of 175 W. The aforementioned GS77 or Razer alternatives, for example, each target only ~100 W instead for slower graphics performance.
Additionally, the system will integrate Cherry Mechanical keys a la the Alienware x17 series and support next generation PCIe5 NVMe SSDs when they become available for even faster storage transfer rates. Note that initial configurations will include only PCIe4 SSDs until PCIe5 drives become more widely available.
MSI says the GT77 will begin shipping in the weeks ahead starting at $3200 up to $4950 USD if fully configured. Note that the external power brick will be relatively large at 330 W compared to 280 W or smaller on most other enthusiast gaming laptops.
