When Intel and Nvidia update their CPU and GPU lines with hot new hardware, what better time is there for gaming laptop makers to go all out on performance?
Along with the release of 13th Generation Core HX processors and GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs, MSI has released the latest version of its MSI Titan GT77 powerhouse laptop, which starts at $4,299 and costs $4,599 as tested. MSI Titan GT77 entry-level price is not for the faint of heart, and it is really only for early adopters who are enthusiasts and have a budget that is almost limitless.
However, the performance is a clear step up from the last generation. Still, even though value doesn’t matter as much in this category, we’d recommend the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18, which uses the same new parts and is often a better performer and a better deal.

The screen of MSI Titan GT77 is 4K at 120 Hz. When I played Red Dead Redemption 2 on this computer, the characters were the clearest. If you like to play games and 1920 x 1080 pixels doesn’t make you happy, I have to say that this laptop will give you the quality you want.
MSI’s updated MSI Titan GT77 is a great example of how high-end performance will look in the year 2023. It’s also a sobering reminder of how much that performance costs, with loud fans, high temperatures, and an obscene price.
