We recently took a look at MSI’s Sword and Katana notebooks and struggled to tell them apart. Now here’s the MSI Pulse GL66 – how different is it?
UPDATE: Check out our MSI Pulse GL76 review.
The official blurb states…
With new livery designed by Maarten Verhoeven – the 2018 ZBrush World Competition Champion – MSI is unveiling its new GL66 and GL76 Pulse laptops. Verhoeven specifically designed the titanium power-armour inspired by Pulse energy for the Dragon Army to enhance agility and flexibility. The laptops use the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU along with a redesigned heat pipe and integrated MSI thermal grease which generates more airflow at lower temperatures. An independent number pad rounds out the user experience.
Beyond some superficial design flourishes it’s basically a Sword and Katana with different graphics and a blue keyboard. Consequently we’ll simply post a gallery here and recommend you read our first look of the MSI Sword.

We couldn’t test the laptop as it was an engineering sample but it did have all of required parts and we’re hopeful for another high performer that doesn’t get too loud and comes in at a reasonable price. Check back to High Performance Laptops for the full review.
