As with a number of other laptop manufacturers, MSI took the stage at CES 2021 today to announce a new lineup of gaming laptops for the year ahead. Like many of the other laptops we heard about yesterday, a number of these new laptops are sporting mobile versions of NVIDIA’s new RTX 30-series GPUs. Some of MSI’s flagship gaming laptops are getting refreshed for 2021, so let’s dive in and see what’s new. MSI seems to be positioning the GE Raider Series – specifically the 17.3-inch GE76 and 15.6-inch GE66 Raider – as its flagship gaming laptop line for 2021. Both laptops will have multiple configuration options that include RTX GPUs (up to an RTX 3080) and a 10th-gen Core i7 CPUs, so these are going to be some powerful laptops. Expect FHD displays regardless of the configuration you choose, but refresh rates that start at a baseline of 144Hz and go all the way up to 300Hz. With configurations that include either 16GB or 32GB of RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD, it sounds like these laptops will be pretty impressive, but of course, they also have hefty price tags to go along with those specs. The Raider Series starts at $1,499, but pricing quickly climbs into the $2,000+ realm, with the high-end GE76 configuration priced at a whopping $2,899. MSI describes the GS66 Stealth as the laptop for professionals who need a powerful machine both for work and for gaming during the off-hours. The GS66 Stealth comes in a number of configurations that, just like the Raider Series laptops, include 10th-gen Core i7 CPUs and RTX 30-series GPUs, ranging from an RTX 3060 all the way up to an RTX 3080. Once again, the 15.6-inch FHD display on this laptop sports a high refresh rate – 240Hz in the “lower-end” models (if you can call them that) and 300Hz in the more powerful models.
