Exclusive | Upcoming MSI Titan GT77 to be the first to offer 4K 144 Hz mini-LED display with 1,008 dimming zones and 1,000 nits peak brightness
CES 2023 is just a few weeks away, and we expect to see most major OEMs showcase their new laptop offerings. We are hearing from our sources in the industry that MSI might have a new Titan GT77 in the offing that will feature a 4K 144 Hz mini-LED panel. We do not have official pictures of the device but did get access to some of its display specifications.
According to information shared by our sources, the upcoming Titan GT77 HX will feature a 17.3-inch 4K 144 Hz AmLED mini-LED panel with 1,008 dimming zones and a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. The panel is capable of achieving a peak brightness of 1,000 nits and is DisplayHDR 1000-certified. The leaked product slides also seem to indicate a 3 ms response time with panel overdrive on.
Similar to what MSI already offers in the Creator series, it looks like the Titan GT77's mini-LED panel will support MSI's True Color feature that assures each and every panel is individually color-calibrated.
Laptops with mini-LED panels are not exactly new. MSI already offers the Creator 17 with a 1,000-nit 60 Hz mini-LED display while other manufacturers also offer select models.
MSI resurrected the Titan branding in mid-2022 once Intel made Alder Lake-HX laptop CPUs official. This time, we may get to see the Titan GT77 launch alongside other mainstream offerings during CES itself.
Apart from the new display tech, the upcoming Titan GT77 also seems to be getting quite a few upgrades in other key areas. Though our sources did not explicitly name the CPU and GPU, it is not too hard to guess that the Titan GT77 will offer flavors of Raptor Lake-HX CPUs and Nvidia's RTX 40 series mobile GPUs.
Other features such as the MUX switch, Cherry MX SteelSeries mechanical keyboard, 99.99 WHr battery, and the speaker system seem to have been inherited from the Titan GT77 12UHS. We do, however, notice some changes such as a new 8-heatpipe cooling system and an upgraded Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX1690 WLAN card.
If this rumor is true, the upcoming MSI Titan GT77 would probably be the first to offer a 4K 144 Hz mini-LED panel on a flagship gaming laptop. This should make it amenable for both gaming and content creation alike.
