MSIOLOGY Intel 11th Gen H Series Laptop Launch


We all know why we’re here.
We’re here to learn about the latest laptops from MSI Gaming.
What’s that you say?

“But Ian, you already told us their GE66 & GE76 Raiders have RTX30 Series GPU’s. How else could they possibly make them better?”

MSI HARNESS THE POWER OF ANIME!

Well it just so happens that MSI’s latest project ‘MSIology, is launching a whole new series of laptops including the existing raiders and creator series models’ equipped with 11th Gen Intel H Series Processors!

During their Virtual event of how “tech meets aesthetic”, they showcased some beautiful creator focused laptops, tailored for content creators that design, animate or curate… but that’s not what you wanna hear about right? You’re reading this article because the cover photo features two sexy black and white laptops. The GF Sword & Katana series laptops. Both the GF Sword & Katana are nearly identical internally, only separated by size and an oriental-dynasty warriors-anime inspired theme.

It’s no secret that MSI manufacture some magnificent laptops. With their recent launch a Babylonian Tiamat themed and the Star Wars/ space ship themed laptop designed by Collie Wertz, MSI have followed in suit with Tsuyoshi Nagano, a highly-praised visual artist who is famous for his awesome artworks for the epic tactical RPG “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” and “Nobunaga’s Ambition”. The body design of Katana GF76 and GF66 was inspired by the craftsmanship of the artisans. It combines the concept of both blade and armor, allowing users to game like a real samurai.

The new Katana GF76/66 and sword 17/15 are different from the last generation in appearance. It will be available in black and white to allow gamers to express their personal style. It has a katana-like sharp, solid body that is both tough and durable while offering a light profile akin to light armor. The GF series are equipped with the latest 11th gen Intel H series processor and NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 30 series graphics. The powerful specs are as strong and powerful as a katana and optimized to unleash true performance during gameplay. The laptops are also equipped with MSI’s signature Cooler Boost cooling system. The specially designed air inlets and outlets resemble warrior armor. They can be found on both sides and at bottom of the chassis, which offers excellent heat dissipation efficiency. This allows the processors and graphics cards to run at the optimum performance for high tier players to feel truly enabled.

Just incase you weren’t into the top 10 anime battles, they even decided to release ANOTHER designer laptop.
This time MSI cooperated with Maarten Verhoeven, an acclaimed digital concept artist and Zbrush World Champion, on the visual identity of the whole new MSI Pulse GL76 and GL66. A more futuristic, cyber warrior theme – very similar to the Eliksni/Fallen Captains of Destiny 2.

“Just like a high-tech battle armor suit. As its name implies, the Pulse GL symbolizes the armed super warrior carrying pulsed energy guns in the games.” said by Clark Peng, the MSI Notebook Division Vice President of Product Management. 

To fully gear-up the gamers, MSI boosted the performance of popular GF series to a never-before-seen level by featuring the latest 11th Gen Intel H series CPU, went from a 6-core CPU all the way up to 8 cores and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 series GPU, generating up to 60% improved CPU performance. The new Katana GF also provides 25% more FPS, making it an advanced solution for every-day gaming. 

MSI even revealed some trade secrets! The company rigorously upgraded the cooling system. “The relatively thin 2.4cm chassis features an impressive cooling layout with up to 2 fans and 6 internal heat pipes. The latest generation allows for greater airflow resulting in a lower core temperature at max load, by redesigning the system with a special heat pipe design that has 33% thinner pipe walls.” witnessed by “Linus Tech Tips”


There’s way too much to cover by us here at Shadownet, more improvements to current models, new releases in the Creator Z series, etc. Yet we want to thank MSI once again for not only being amazing partners but for the privilege to write this article and to be part of the 11th gen of gaming laptops and their launch.
