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.

The MSI GE76 Raider 11UH is a high-end fully-loaded gaming laptop. As a result, it is a bit heavy. However, the device does deliver great performance, especially in the extreme performance mode.

MSI GE76 Raider review
ultrabookreview.com
  • - 4.25
This top-configuration of the MSI GE76 Raider is the fastest gaming laptop we've tested so far and one of the fastest currently available on the market. Having a 155W 3080 and i9 inside is what's driving the performance, paired with an alright thermal solution, a MUX switch, and a fast display. Throw in the premium design and craftsmanship, good inputs and IO, and the big battery, and this looks like a hard-to-match performance laptop. The devil is in the details, though, and as you'll find out in this review, there are some aspects that you need to carefully consider before jumping on this one.

The MSI GE76 Raider is a traditional big, heavy gaming laptop that’s a solid performer overall with one key advantage: the screaming performance of a GeForce RTX 3080 mobile GPU tuned up to 155 watts. It’s expensive, but it’s worth it.

The GE76 Raider is, objectively, the definition of top-of-the-line, eschewing portability and battery life to deliver raw, uncompromising power for a very particular niche. You’d be hard pressed to find more performance in a package you can technically take with you, and when paired with a monitor this machine is a desktop replacement that truly lives up to the name.
