Massive and powerful, the new gaming laptop MSI GT76 9SFS-252FR Titan DT designer oriented has a 17 inch IPS Full HD anti-reflective 240Hz screen that enhances the fluidity in games. Able to run recent games with its dedicated high-end NVIDIA Turing card GeForce RTX 2070 Super ray tracing which accelerates multimedia processing, it relies on an Octo Core i7 desktop processor and a large amount of RAM to provide processing very fast and above all a big overall power. It also benefits from a large capacity hybrid storage with fast SSD to enhance its responsiveness, a backlit chiclet keyboard or even Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GT76 9SFS-252FR Titan DT
With its thick massive chassis with angular lines and advanced screen, it sports a resolutely gamer design.
The Cooler Boost Titan technology takes care of cooling it using 4 fans with 11 heat pipes and ventilation grilles found on the sides, rear and below.
Connectivity side, this powerful computer oriented players and creators is well equipped. There are 2 USB 3.1 Type-C including 1 Thunderbolt 3, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort useful in order to easily connect this PC to a TV for example, wireless modules Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, Ethernet and audio ports or 4 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if peripherals USB 3.0 are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, here by an RGB system per key, which is very practical to discern them in the dark.
The screen clearly aims to seduce players with its refresh rate of 240Hz which enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. 100% sRGB and IPS, the screen also offers more accurate colorimetry than average as well as comfortable viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. The screen is also very well suited to High Definition content and particularly to videos because of its 16 / 8th format. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny screen in a bright environment (eg outside) while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GT76 9SFS-252FR Titan DT
The MSI GT76 9SFS-252FR Titan DT targets those on a large budget and who are looking to acquire a powerful versatile laptop, efficient in games and multimedia oriented.
As it incorporates the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2070 Super card with ray tracing, this computer is capable of running the most recent and demanding games at a good level of detail.
Depending on the tasks performed, the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically switches between the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated in the processor in real time.
Optimus uses the Intel UHD 630 to the maximum despite its very modest performance because it consumes a lot of energy and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, the 2 obviously allowing to watch photos and videos.
Of course, software that takes advantage of GPU computing power can use the GeForce RTX 2070 Super to speed up multimedia processing. This is for example the case with Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
The heart of this computer is up to the task, supporting the RTX 2070 Super well in games. It actually delivers a large overall power capable of satisfying the most demanding users because it is built around an Intel Z390 chipset, an Octo Core i7-9700K desktop processor but also a large amount of RAM of 32 GB.
This duo has the advantage of guaranteeing processing much faster than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly important in demanding jobs in CPU and RAM resources exploiting the multicore architecture, as in video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Storage is in keeping with its capacity higher than the average of 2 TB. Hybrid, it offers both comfortable capacity thanks to its hard drive of 1000 GB (swift with its speed of 7200 rpm against 5400 tr / min usually) and great responsiveness thanks to its 1 TB SSD.
In practice, the SSD is intended to accommodate the system as well as games / software, the rest taking place on the hard drive.
As a reminder, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness and fluidity in use than a simple hard drive. Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage for example of starts / stops, processing and launches of games / software, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Finally, with regard to the autonomy of this PC, which is very noisy and heats up (on average for this type of PC) when it is heavily used (eg games, treatments), count on approximately 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
