The desktop replacement laptop comes with an ultra-fast 144Hz display and is powered by Nvidia's most capable notebook GPU at the moment. The build quality and the materials of the GT76 are very good. Fan noise is very loud when gaming and the two AC adapters and cables feel even more bulky to carry around than the laptop itself.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
MSI employs a three-pronged attack, using 11 heat pipes, four fans and an undercarriage that's more vents than anything. The system lasted 3 hours and 45 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery test. Despite its 720p shooter, the Titan delivered grainy and slightly washed-out images.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
GT76 is on the same level as other notebooks with the RTX 2080. We observed stuttering only in the extremely demanding Port Royal real-time ray tracing benchmark. MSI laptop features Nvidia’s Optimus technology, which helps improve battery life. While most notebooks get skewered when it comes to the question of the sound quality, the GT76 escapes unscathed.

MSI True Color allows for quick and easy color adjustments and profiles. LatencyMon shows DPC latency issues related to nvlddmkm.sys when opening multiple tabs on our homepage. 4K UHD video playback at 60 FPS isn't perfect either with 56 dropped frames during our minute-long YouTube test.

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The cooling fans in the GT76 Titan DT are whisper-quiet for mundane tasks like office productivity. Once you fire up a game, though, be prepared for an audible assault. The sheer volume of airflow jetting through the numerous vents creates a high-pitched airflow noise. The battery simply isn't up to the demands of the power draw required by the components.

  • Superb gaming performance
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Extremely loud fans
  • No G-Sync support


Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The MSI GT76 Titan is an absolute beast of a gaming laptop. With its high-end desktop components and robust cooling solution, you'll be able to play every game at max settings without even breaking a sweat. But, it's still a big, bulky and not very portable, so it's also going to be very expensive.

  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Excellent RGB lighting
  • Expensive for a gaming laptop
  • No portability

The huge MSI deploys heavyweight desktop components. The desktop version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 has the usual 2944 stream processors and 8GB of memory. The Intel Core i9-9900K is another desktop chip, and this CPU has eight multi-threaded cores, a base speed of 3.6GHz and a theoretical boost peak of 5GHz. There’s 64GB of DDR4, a 1TB RAID array made from two Samsung SSDs and a 1 TB hard disk.
