The MSI GE76 10UE-089FR Raider is a creative-oriented gaming laptop PC with a 17-inch IPS Full HD display whose frequency of 300Hz improves fluidity in games. This black and silver computer designed to play and create is capable of running recent games thanks to its high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing graphics card which also speeds up multimedia processing such as the large amount of RAM. 32 GB and Comet Lake-H Octo Core i7 processor. In addition, this laptop PC for gamers and creators has a fast 1TB SSD storage that enhances its responsiveness and benefits from an RGB backlit chiclet keyboard as well as connectivity with Wi-Fi ax, dual video output and USB- vs. But it lacks Thunderbolt.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GE76 10UE-089FR Raider
It has a clearly gamer appearance by taking up the codes of the genre with its frame with angular lines, black interior and silver shell.
Cooler Boost 5 technology takes care of cooling it using 2 fans, 6 heat pipes and air vents.
In terms of connectivity, this designer-oriented gaming laptop PC is well equipped with its USB-C, its practical HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, its wireless Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi modules. Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its Ethernet and audio ports not to mention its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Too bad, however, to note the absence of Thunderbolt …
In any case, of course, we can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard, here via an RGB system per key, which is practical to discern it in the dark.
The design of the keyboard was carried out with the support of SteelSeries so that it is adapted to the habits of the gamers.
The players will particularly appreciate the screen because it is adorned with a frequency of 300Hz clearly reinforcing the fluidity in the games compared to the standard 60Hz. Creators will also be interested in the panel because it claims to be 100% sRGB and IPS. And because of this, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average as well as important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 format, the screen is also suitable for High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of the MSI GE76 10UE-089FR Raider
The MSI GE76 10UE-089FR Raider can appeal to those on a very comfortable budget and looking for a versatile 17-inch laptop that is powerful, creative and gaming oriented.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a large amount of 32 GB RAM and an Intel Comet Lake-H Octo Core i7-10870H processor, the heart of this designer-oriented gaming laptop delivers overall power without common with that provided by the vast majority of laptops on the market.
Suffice to say that demanding users will be delighted, especially creators.
Because these components guarantee much faster processing than 8/16 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor.
We particularly feel the difference, important, in demanding work in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
In addition, the NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 dedicated graphics card with on-board ray tracing accelerates processing even further. This is at least the case with software using GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
The GeForce RTX 3060 will of course also be of interest to gamers since this high-end graphics card is capable of supporting recent games.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3060 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus gives maximum priority to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor while its performance is very modest in comparison because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes battery life.
In this area, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
As a result, the GeForce RTX 3060 is enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. It is possible to view photos and videos with either.
In terms of storage, MSI offers here no less than 3 M.2 slots for SSD, enough to see the coming and evolve if necessary this PC in this area.
Because only one slot is used by an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB, similar to what hard disks offer in this area.
But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks, silent but also much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, one reaches for example faster on the cards of the online games than with a hard disk. We also benefit from much faster starts / stops, treatments and launches of games / software.
Finally, because of its powerful and greedy components, it should be kept in mind that this portable PC designed to play and create is heard and heats up when it is heavily used (eg games, processing).
If it is not the most easily transportable due to its weight and its large 17-inch format, the latter particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
