Behold, MSI gaming laptops with 8th gen processors have arrived

The 8th gen “H” processors were a game changer in the processor industry. Although late to the game, laptop manufacturers have started to launch their gaming laptops with full-fledged 6 core 8th gen Intel processors. More specifically, the Intel Core i7-8750H that replaces the 7700HQ from the last generation, boasting around 20-30% of performance improvement.

The Core i7-8750H is blessed with 6 cores, 12 threads, yet has the same 45W TDP. It’s built on the 14nm coffee lake architecture from Intel, with 2.2 GHz base and 4.1 GHz boost clock speeds. Finally, not that it matters much in this context, but they do come with Intel UHD 630 integrated graphics solution.

MSI GT75 Titan 8RG

The MSI GT75 Titan 8RG is the most expensive of the bunch, priced at Rs 436,500, it’s clearly one of the best laptops for gaming you can buy in Nepal right now. It comes with the i7-8750H processor, paired with just 16GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 2400MHz. It is upgradable up to a maximum of 64GB, but for the price, I was really hoping for more.MSI GT75 Titan 8RG

Putting that aside, this laptop features a 17.3″ UHD 4K display capable of 100% AdobeRGB color coverage. Now that is pretty impressive, but whats more impressive is the GTX 1080 GPU, that goes hand in hand with the 4K display. The 512GB NVME SSD along with a 1TB hard disk is no surprise.

MSI GE63 Raider 8RF

The 15.6″ display on this one isn’t as impressive as the 4k display on the titan, but the 120Hz FullHD isn’t something to be shy about. It also has a low 3ms response time, with a 100% RGB color coverage. It also features the i7-8750H, with 16GB of RAM, 256GB NVME SSD, and a 1TB mechanical hard disk.MSI GE63 Raider 8RF

To go along with the 120Hz refresh rate, MSI has fitted a GTX 1070 inside with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM. The laptop is priced at Rs 242,500, which is probably worth the specs but get this, it also has individually lit RGB keyboard, which looks pretty DOPE.

MSI GP63 Leopard 8RE

This is the first laptop in the list that you can buy for under 2 lakhs. It has features very similar to the Raider, except for the GTX 1060 instead of 1070. So, for around 40k less, you still get the 120Hz 3ms display, the same amount of RAM and storage. Although, this one misses out on individually lit RGB keyboard. MSI GP63 Leopard 8RE

MSI GL63 8RC

This is the most affordable laptop with a full-fledged 6 core 12 thread i7 8750H processor inside. It’s a 15.6-inch gaming laptop with FullHD resolutions and 94% NTSC colour coverage, which caps out at 60Hz. Not that it would matter much, thanks to the underpowered GTX 1050, which rarely pushes out more than 60fps in most games. MSI GL63 8RC

This laptop sadly only has a single colour backlit (RED) Full sized steel series keyboard. It also doesn’t come with an SSD, just 8GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD. On the positive side, the GTX 1050 is, in fact, the 4GB variant.

The laptops are currently available in Sasto Deal, and you also get 3 months of 50Mbps internet from Worldlink free as well. Now, most people will compare these laptops with last gen ones and declare them overpriced, which is true to an extent. But the improvement in the processing department is also a pretty significant one.
