MSI refreshed its Raider lineup of gaming laptops last month with the new GE66 2021. It is powered by 10th-gen Intel Core i9 processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card. The good news here is that the laptop will soon be available in the Nepali market. So, let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of MSI GE66 Raider 2021 in Nepal.
MSI GE66 Raider 2021 Overview:
Design and Display
The new MSI GE66 Raider 2021 has an aluminum build and is available in silver finish. The lid has the MSI dragon logo on the top. On the bottom of the laptop, MSI has included what it calls the Dragon Armor carving. On the front, the GE66 Raider retains the “Mystic Light” LED bar for the panoramic aurora lighting design. MSI claims that the bar supports 16.8 million color combinations.
The laptop comes with a 15.6-inch IPS FHD display. It is available with either a 240Hz or 300Hz refresh rate. The company also offers the device with a UHD panel but that is less likely to hit the Nepali market. Talking about the display, the bezels on the sides are thinner. But the ones on the top and bottom are quite thick. The bottom also houses the MSI logo.
