MSI’s 2022 laptop line-up revealed at CES

MSI has revealed its new line-up of laptops equipped with Intel’s latest 12th Gen H-series processors. The new laptops sport the Meta-ready logo with an aim to offer Metaverse-compatible performance. 

The new laptops also now offer Nvidia’s new top-end GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPUs which include up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory.

They also offer the new 4th-generation Nvidia Max-Q technology, with CPU Optimizer, Rapid Core Scaling, and Battery Boost 2.0 to enhance efficiency, performance and battery life.

MSI says, “The new gaming laptop line-up features a significant performance improvement over previous models; including up to 30%~45% increase in CPU performance.” The company added thermal innovation management including a ‘Phase-Change Liquid Metal Pad.’

MSI’s Creator series now includes panels up to 17 inches. The overall CPU performance is improved 45% with the new Vapor Chamber Cooler and there are new features like touch support for MSI Pen, Calman verified True Pixel Display and a collaboration with DTS for, “A rich, immersive surround sound experience.”

GS77/66 Stealth

The Stealth GS series contains lightweight and powerful laptops for gaming and professional use. The GS77 comes with a new “core black” colour and a more-durable zinc alloy hinge. At less than 21mm for Z height, MSI has, “Managed to enlarge the touchpad and keycap size for a precise and comfortable typing experience. It is also equipped with six speakers for crisp treble and powerful bass. Business gamers will benefit from the webcam lock switch and support for up to100W PD charging for better security and mobility.”

MSI Raider GE76/66

The MSI Raider GE series, “Is the real eye-catcher, retaining the panoramic aurora lighting, which creates an alluring sci-fi ambience. The performance is even more astonishing; with the innovative thermal design by MSI, the Raider GE series performance can reach up to a total of 220W of power with GeForce RTX 3080 Ti via MSI OverBoost. The Phase Change Liquid Metal Pad increases performance by an extra 10% and with displays up to 4K with the support of Discrete Graphics Mode, gamers will have a fast and smooth experience.”

Vector GP76/66

The Vector GP Series has been, “Born with a new concept; the name “Vector” represents MSI’s expectation for the GP series to have all the power needed to move forward with a satisfying experience in gaming, engineering, or scientific computing. With Cooler Boost 5 Technology, the Vector’s performance can reach up to 210W via MSI Over Boost.”

Rainbow Six Extraction Edition – Crosshair 15

The Crosshair GL series is a collaboration between MSI and Ubisoft. The series features a, “Futuristic design with exclusive sci-fi elements inspired by the feeling and mood of gameplay and comes equipped with Intel Core i9 processors and Cooler Boost 5 Technology. The graphic performance is at a maximized level – setting the Crosshair series apart from its competition. Crosshair GL Series comes in three variants: Crosshair 15, Crosshair 17 and the limited edition Crosshair 15 Rainbow Six Extraction Edition that comes with an exclusive bundle pack.”

Pulse GL76/66

The MSI Pulse GL76/66 keeps the design features by Maarten Verhoeven along with the “Titanium-power-armour-inspired-by-Pulse-energy-for-the-Dragon-Army to enhance agility and flexibility. Cooler Boost 5 increases airflow by 15%, even with a 33% reduction of wall thickness.”

MSI Sword 17/15, Katana GF76/66

The MSI Sword series boasts a new knight image with, “Magical immortal force – “Dragon Power” – wielding an enchanted sword of victory. Justin Goby Fields created this knight character, a famous concept artist from the United States. Both Sword and Katana series are set to help gamers succeed with a comfortable key travel at 1.7mm and Cooler Boost 5.”

Creator Z17, Creator Z16P and Creator Z16

MSI says the Creator Z17 is the, “World’s first 17-inch laptop to support pen touch and feature the 16:10 screen ratio with a thin bezel design and True Color Technology” and that it can be, “The perfect companion for creators to achieve more. The Creator Z16P has an extra 20% performance boost with Vapor Chamber Cooler, which generates 76% extra cooling, 65% more airflow and decreases the surface temperature by 2°C (3.6°F). With competitive performance and a CNC-milled aluminium chassis, the Creator Z Series are Studio laptops built for creators, inquisitive professionals, or consumers who enjoy high quality, premium products.”

The Creator M16 is, “A more-portable and stylish choice for students or creators with the need for powerful performance. It features a QHD+ True Pixel display that lays flat at 180° and an ultra-light, slim aluminium chassis.

“MSI does not just innovate with its hardware, but also with the MSI Center software with the intention of creating the smartest laptops ever. MSI Smart Auto will auto switch the suitable modes depending on your usage, while Ambient Silent AI will detect ambient noise level (dB) to adjust the fan speed, giving you better performance with a relatively silent fan.

“MSI’s new Gaming and Content Creation series provide persistently powerful performance, innovative thermal solutions and a bevy of new features, with MSI’s signature aesthetic touch.”
