Performance

It contains a 2.5 to 4.9 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9-11900H (11th Gen) processor with 24 MB of L3 Cache.

It contains a 2.4 to 4.6 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i7-11800H (11th Gen) processor with 24 MB of L3 Cache.

With an 11th gen Intel CPU you can be assured that the laptop has a recent CPU. Whilst not the latest, due to the release of the Intel 12 Series CPUs, it is still recent. However, with the release of the 12th gen you may wish to choose that instead to ensure the longevity of your new laptop.

With the 12th Gen processors now released, choosing this laptop with a 12th gen CPU inside will ensure your laptop goes the mile. It's the latest CPU from Intel, offering many performance increases over the previous 11th gen CPUs.

There's a Dedicated graphics card which is a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 with 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM.

A dedicated graphics card usually offers a little bit more graphics power so could be better suited towards gaming and/or graphics processing work like image or video editing.

The maximum memory capacity is 64 GB via the 2 (0 Available) memory slots.

The RAM slot type is 260-Pin SO-DIMM.

Because at least one of the ram slots in the MSI 15.6" GS66 Stealth is replaceable, you will be able to upgrade the ram at a later date.

The gaming sweetspot comes to laptops
engadget.com
  • - 4.1
MSI has delivered a solid 1440p gaming laptop when it comes to pure performance — it’s just too bad about those fans. Maybe that won’t be an issue for some buyers. I’m just hoping a redesign fixes things for the next model. At this point, it’s clear that MSI is reaching the limits of what you can do with thin gaming machines.

White-collar performance notebook

For the most part, the MSI GS66 Stealth is a good laptop that should meet the design, ergonomics, performance, and battery life expectations of its potential buyers, but it's also affected by small imperfections and quirks. Many of those concern the system's performance and thermals in demanding loads, that's why I'd primarily look into the lower-tier i7 + RTX 2060/2070 configurations of this laptop, as versatile a work/school computer with only secondary gaming abilities. We're getting in-depth in the lengthy review down below.

Peak 1440p gaming
digitaltrends.com
  • - 3.5
There’s no doubt that 1440p is the future of laptop gaming. More than ray tracing, higher fidelity makes every game you play look sharper, smoother, and more immersive. The MSI GS66 Stealth is finally a gaming laptop that can run at 1440p at decent frame rates. It might not be my favorite design for a gaming laptop, but the combination of a superfast, high-resolution screen and excellent gaming performance make it one of the best gaming laptops you can buy.

MSI’S GS66 STEALTH ALMOST HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO BEAT RAZER

For years, Razer has set the standard for making gaming laptops that are compact, slim, and feel great to use. MSI wants to end that streak, and its new GS66 Stealth is actually a viable alternative, at least in terms of performance. It still has a little work to do on nailing the small design details.
