MSI introduced its new high-powered GT76 last year with the most exquisite software. Termed as the fastest gaming laptop, it came equipped with the then top-of-the-line Core i9-9900K CPU and GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. The GT76 Titan fell into the category of a desktop with a screen because of its specifications. Now, to maintain the title of the fastest gaming laptop, MSI replaced its CPU and GPU with many efficient models; the Core i9-10900K and mobile GeForce RTX 2080 Super. The model is considered to be just one step away from being a proper desktop.
MSI GT76 Titan Drawback
Besides the two huge AC adapters, the GT76 has another major drawback; its fan noise! While running regular day-to-day activities like web browsing and video streaming, the device is fairly quiet. However, when it comes to operating heavy gaming or other demanding applications, the fan noise hits the 60.7 dB (A) mark. Regular gaming laptops only reach the 50 dB (A) mark. Additionally, the laptop also has a turbofan mode known as the Cooler Boost. When that is activated, the fan noise is even louder and reaches 66 dB (A), which is a rare mark for any laptop.
MSI GT76 Titan Plus Point
One satisfactory point is that the Cooler Boost mode is not required while running games. The CPU and GPU temperatures will be a bit warm at 59 C and 83 C from 53 C and 77 C, respectively. Nevertheless, the device will still perform efficiently with the frame rates and clock rates intact. The turbofan mode is only recommended for running extreme applications that require 100% utilization of the processors.
