After Intel announced its new and most powerful PC CPU till date – the Core I9 – it was speculated that it will be used mostly in the desktops. However, MSI has announced a new laptop named the MSI GT76 Titan which is powered by an unlocked, desktop-class Core i9 CPU into its laptop sized frame.
The new the MSI GT76 Titan, according to the company, packs the ninth generation ‘full desktop’ unlocked Intel Core i9 CPU into its chassis. The company also said that the high-end model of the MSI GT76 Titan will pack an 8-core, 16-thread configuration which can be overclocked up to 5GHz. But to pack that much overclocking, speed and power, the laptop would need a world-class cooling system or it wouldn’t end well for the MSI GT76 Titan.
For cooling, the MSI GT76 Titan packs four fans and 11 heat pipes. According to the company, the new gaming laptop will generate more than twice the airflow. With this kind of cooling, the MSI GT76 Titan can be pushed close to 5GHz.
For graphics, the MSI GT76 Titan packs a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU which is one of the most advanced GPU brought by NVIDIA for 2019. The RTX 2080 crammed inside the MSI GT76 Titan also comes with a dedicated Ray Tracing and tensor cores. It might be one of the best GPUs out there but with its configuration, the company could have put the ReForce RTX 2080 Ti in the new laptops.
The MSI GT76 Titan would be competing against the Alienware Area 51M gaming laptop. The Area 51M gaming laptop from Alienware comes with a socketed Core i9-9900K. And in a way, the MSI GT76 Titan might be the same in CPU and processing power. But it is clear that these laptops are a gaming desktop replacement and although they might not be easy to carry, they are still portable and a hybrid.
Talking about the design aspect of the new laptop, the MSI GT76 Titan comes with a car-inspired design as it has put lighting on the underside of the chassis. There is also full RGB backlit keyboard on the new laptop. Currently the launch date and the pricing of the new laptop hasn’t been revealed by the company but it will soon be announced. Considering the specifications of the new MSI GT76 Titan, the price no doubt will be on the premium high-end side.
