Desktop Caliber Gaming Meets Laptop Portability

By May 19, 2021 May 26th, 2021 No Comments

For years gamers have wondered if it’s possible to achieve peak level performance alongside the portability of a laptop. Wonder no longer. Today we’re going to discuss the new GP66 Leopard powered by Intel’s H45 technology. It’s desktop caliber performance on a gaming laptop. 

Beautiful Graphics

Look at that water shine

You know the old saying, “it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” Well that’s definitely true of these impressive machines. If you’re looking for the top end model, these come with up to an 11th generation Intel Core i9 8-core processor.  

So let’s break down why this is pound for pound one of the best gaming laptops on the market. It all starts with the Cores each handling different software threads. 

What makes this gaming laptop different?

The 11th gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor in this laptop is Hyper-Threaded. That’s a hardware innovation that allows more than one thread to run on each core. Each core then works as two “logical cores” that handle different threads of program data.

Whereas single-threaded cores might sit idle waiting for the completion of other tasks, hyperthreaded cores crunch the binary in parallel. This usually translates to improved overall performance for you the person behind the keyboard.

So if you’re, say, a gamer who likes playing games while you stream, or while chatting with friends, or while looking up helpful gaming tips to get you through the tricky parts, you’re looking at system that at its core is designed to handle multitasking. 

Running multiple applications is obviously advantageous for gamers, but the possibilities are limitless as to what you can accomplish simultaneously. Up until now this level performance was limited to desktop systems. Now you can take it with you. Enjoy a high-end gaming experience anywhere!

What else comes inside? 

With the GPU, you can get all the way up to a GeForce RTX 3080 laptop graphics card. That’s right, this is a laptop with a comparable performance to the top-of-the-line discrete graphics cards that you might find in a custom desktop build.

We crashed a lot, the laptop did not

To complete the gaming package, these models also come with FHD 240Hz displays. If you’re looking for a laptop that’s capable of doing real-time ray tracing with AI Enhanced DLSS 2.0, then look no further. You’ve found it.

The GPU does some awesome heavy lifting in a game like Cyberpunk at Ultra Settings with full on Ray Tracing. Getting this kind of quality is a must for your gaming experience in 2021, and finding this level of quality in a laptop is fantastic.

Any games you play with high frame rates will be perfect for the FHD 240Hz display, which can keep up with all the pixels that your GPU is pushing.

These features can all be adjusted through the MSI Center. This interface allows users to adjust these settings as well as personalize their app list, noise cancellation and optimized audio, and automatically set priority for apps based on AI learning. We had Cyberpunk running on extreme performance and it just looked amazing.

What about connectivity and cooling?

And with WiFi 6 connectivity, the Leopard’s network performance won’t be… spotty. 

The stable speeds provided are perfect for gamers who’ve ever been tripped up by a bad connection and are looking to upgrade.  

Let’s talk about temperature maintenance for a hot second. Because these cool cats come with the Cooler Boost 5 system, you’ll never have to worry about how cool your laptop is ever again.

It comes with two fans and six heat pipes for a perfect keep-that-high-performance-GPU-and-CPU-operating-at-manageable-temperatures kind of cool.

And while we’re talking cool, let’s talk about the coolest of cool aspects: The RGB. This steel series keyboard puts all the RGB effects you want at your fingertips.

Would it be a gaming rig without it?

If there were one word we’d use to describe these lights, it would be: Panoramic Aurora Lighting with Mystic Light. 

In general, this machine finds the perfect blend between style and performance. The exterior features oblique angles, durable dragon armor carving, and a cool toned aluminum finish. 

We all know the best things in life come in threes. That’s why on this laptop you’re getting ports on three sides, which is great for cable management for anyone who feels like their space is being cluttered!   

You’ve got the standard audio combo port, three type-A USB 3.2 ports, a type-C USB, 1 RJ45 port, and a 4k HDMI port.  

This product comes perfectly equipped for all your gaming needs, wherever they take you.
