The new normal that we now live in requires the right tools to get the best experience when gaming and working from home. The redesigned and upgraded MSI GE76 Raider that is now on pre-orders in Malaysia is just the right laptop to fit all these needs and more as it’s not only a gaming powerhouse but has the performance to act as a solid cornerstone for any content creator.
Originally revealed at CES 2021, the MSI GE76 Raider is the latest offering in their popular line of Raider series gaming laptops that boasts of a proven 10th Gen Intel Core processor paired with the latest high-powered NVIDIA RTX 30 series graphics in a streamlined design that is both stylish and intimidating to the competition.
As part of the 2021 revamp, the MSI GE76 Raider now has a full spectrum RGB backlit light bar that stretches across the entire front of the laptop to give a customisable audio visual light show on demand. This is complemented by a subtle redesign of the chassis which has been made sleeker yet visually striking in keeping with MSI’s signature aesthetics.
Here’s 5 stunning ways that the new MSI GE76 Raider that’s heading for Malaysia is the perfect choice for gamers and content creators alike.
#1 You want power? The MSI GE76 Raider has it and more with NVIDIA RTX 30 series graphics
The refreshed MSI GE76 Raider is a blend of proven technologies with the latest cutting edge hardware that can tackle the latest AAA games like Cyberpunk 2077 and take on intensive creator work like rendering videos, editing photos and more.
Powering the GE76 Raider is an Intel Core i7-10870H CPU with 8 cores and 16 threads and which has up to 5GHz turbo clock speed. Paired with the reliable Intel i7-10870H processor is the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card with a generous 8GB GDDR6 VRAM.
Based on NVIDIA’s latest Ampere architecture, the new RTX 3070 graphic cards are 8x more efficient than the previous generation with their powerful Dynamic Boost 2.0 tech that optimises power between the CPU and GPU.
The new NVIDIA RTX 3070 cards also feature the new PCIe Resizable Bar Technology. For the uninitiated, this allows the CPU to access graphics card memory (VRAM) for better performance.
Add in 16GB 3,200MHz DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 64GB), a fast 1TB M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3 SSD and a potent Cooler Boost 5 cooling solution to keep everything performing at optimum levels even under heavy workloads and have a finely tuned gaming powerhouse that can tackle any challenge.
Add in a 99Whr battery – the largest you can legally carry on a plane – and you have one of the most powerful gaming rigs that money can buy.
#2 See everything with a massive 17.3-inch 240Hz True Color display and up to 3 external displays
The MSI GE76 Raider comes with an absolutely massive 17.3-inch IPS display with Full HD (1,920 x 1080 pixels) resolution and super thin bezels that measure just 5mm thin on the sides to afford more screen real estate.
Size isn’t the only thing going for it as the display itself offers a fast 240Hz refresh rate to ensure pixel perfect precision in fast action games like Counterstrike and League of Legends.
The display also has MSI’s True Color 3.0 tech which offers customised modes to ensure an optimum user experience whether you’re working on documents, web browsing, gaming or watching movies.
Better yet, the GE76 Raider has the ability to port your feed out to 3 other external displays with two of them at up to 8K resolution.
Ultimately, the MSI GE76 Raider can offer you an unparalleled view from your laptop main display and all 3 external monitors at the same time, turning it into a true gaming and work command centre.
#3 Hear every footstep and gunshot with Dynaudio quad speakers and Nahimic 3
Sound is an often overlooked aspect that can take immersion in gaming and your win ratio to another level. The MSI GE76 Raider ensures that every aspect of sound can be experienced in full detail.
Combining a pair of Dynaudio Wave woofers and drivers to generate a world-class sound stage, the MSI GE76 Raider’s sophisticated quad-speaker setup enables users to experience every footstep and every gunshot with vivid realism.
Audiophiles can even experience their favourite tracks in lossless 192KHz/24 bit Hi-Resolution Audio music in all its glory with deep bass and rich detail. To further enhance this aural extravaganza, MSI has added in Nahimic 3 audio tech to offer in-game 3D surround sound. Whether you’re gaming, enjoying movies or music, the GE76 Raider lets you experience it the way it’s meant to be.
#4 Control every aspect of your gaming experience with MSI Dragon Center
Offering great hardware is just half the battle. The ability to customise the user experience to your exact needs is what separates the best from the crowd and something that the GE76 Raider is able to offer with its unique Dragon Center customisation hub.
With MSI’s Dragon Center, you’re able to customise almost every aspect of the GE76 Raider from one simple user interface. One click of a button lets you optimise your entire system to get the most out of any game, stream your game in an almost bungle-proof fashion and even help you keep your system tuned for maximum performance so you can enjoy an optimum gaming experience for a long time to come.
#5 Superior streaming experiences with WiFi 6E, Killer Gaming LAN and a sharp Full HD webcam
Gamers today aren’t just playing on their own and the best gamers stream their games to a global audience. The MSI GE76 Raider doesn’t skimp on the good stuff as it comes with a Full HD camera for sharper, crisper videos and video calls too.
To ensure a smooth gaming and streaming experience, MSI have kitted it out with the latest WiFi 6E which takes advantage of the 6GHz band to offer lower latency, high performance and faster data rates – all of which are critical when you’re playing streaming that killer match of Fortnite or Warzone on Discord or Twitch
With fast WiFi 6E, MSI has also added their own Killer Gaming LAN technology to the mix which helps to prioritise and protect from lag spikes and manage your bandwidth for a flawless gaming experience.
Naturally, these features also means that the MSI GE76 Raider is excellent for users working from home to ensure excellent quality video calls from Zoom, MS Teams and the like.
