Updated models of MSI gaming laptops lit up in the Indian market. Three series of notebooks — MSI GP Leopard, MSI Pulse GL and MSI Katana GF will receive 10 different versions of new models. The Leopard series is the most premium with 11th generation Intel Core H-series processors, followed by the Pulse GL series and then the Katana GF series which features Intel i5 and i7 processors.
MSI GP Leopard Series
The GP Leopard series includes two models: MSI GP76 Leopard 11UG and MSI GP66 Leopard 11UG. Both models have the same filling, differing in display sizes. The first model features a 17.3-inch FHD display with a whopping 240Hz refresh rate, while the second model features a 15.6-inch FHD display with the same 240Hz refresh rate.
The series is equipped with an 11th generation Intel i7 processor and an 8GB GDDR6 RTX 3070 GPU. The laptops have up to 64GB of expandable RAM and an NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD. The laptops have stereo speakers that use Nahimic 3 Audio Enhance technology. In terms of connectivity, there’s an HDMI port, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a mini DisplayPort, USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, and Wi-Fi 6E support.
MSI GP76 Leopard 11UG (17.3″) with Intel Core i7 and RTX 3070 GPU starts at ~$2711 and MSI GP66 Leopard 11UG (15.6″) with the same internals ~$2631
MSI Pulse GL Series
Pulse GL is below the Leopard series and the Pulse GL line also includes two models — MSI Pulse GL76 and MSI Pulse GL66. Like the Leopard series, these two models also have different screen sizes. The Pulse GL76 has a 17.3″ FHD display while the Pulse GL66 has a 15.6″ FHD display.
