MSI gaming laptops with 13th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards will cost up to $4,700. Such data was shared by a major American retailer Microcenter, which published prices for new models of gaming laptops from a Taiwanese manufacturer.
The flagship GT77HX Titan gaming laptop, equipped with a 24-core Core i9-13980HX processor, 64GB DDR5-5600 RAM, a 2TB SSD and a 16GB GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card Memory, is estimated at $4,700 in the US.
The GE78HX Raider will be available for $4,000. This novelty differs from the Titan in the body, as well as in the screen with mini-LED backlighting, support for 1440p resolution (instead of 4K) and a refresh rate of 240 Hz. For buyers of the GE78HX Raider, they offer an option with a GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card with 12 GB memory. In this case, the laptop is $700 cheaper. In addition, this gaming system will be equipped with slower DDR5 RAM modules.
The middle segment will be laptops with GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards and 8 GB of memory. For example, the MSI Pulse 15 model with a Core i7-13700H, 32 GB of DDR5-5200 RAM and a 1 TB SSD costs $1,700. Alternatively, a GeForce RTX 4060 version with 8GB of memory is offered for $1,500.
The cheapest in the MSI gaming laptop list is the Katana 15. For $1200, the new product will offer either the Core i7-12650H or the Core i7-13620H and the GeForce RTX 4060 or GeForce RTX 4050.
According to unconfirmed information, starting February 1, retail networks will start accepting pre-orders for laptops with GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards. However, actual laptop shipments won’t start until February 8th or 22nd, depending on the laptop model.
