Lava International

MSI, the name that has proven itself in the gaming community, just introduced three new laptops in Nepal. The list includes RTX powered laptops, with either an RTX 2060 or an RTX 2070, all powered by a six-core i7-8750H processor. Now, we have all heard about RTX series laptops being all expensive and not worth the money. But bear with me, as I shall prove you wrong, or at least try to.

These might seem like some really expensive laptops, and they are but first, consider the hardware it comes with. RTX provides a hefty bump over its predecessor, the GTX1060, and is almost as powerful as the GTX 1070. That’s with the Ray-Tracing and DLSS out of the equation. Let’s look at a few pointers as to why buying any of these three laptops is a good deal.

Nepali pricing

Nepali consumers are familiar with paying a premium for laptops if purchased from the official channels. That’s not exactly the case here, the prices are pretty well put together, unlike what the history suggests. There is a slight chance these prices might be unbeatable, combine that with the perks of buying from an official channel, can we argue with that?

The RTX GPU

Now, international pricing aside, RTX GPUs are pretty powerful. They are overpriced for sure, but it’s a well thought out graphics processor that should get better with time. Rumors of the new DLSS update hints at a 50% more in-game fps and that is huge. Even without the update, the RTX 2060 can easily tackle the likes of GTX 1070, while the RTX 2070 takes on the GTX 1080. With more games soon to support ray-tracing and more optimizations, we should see RTX GPUs show their full potential in the coming months.

Competitors in Nepal

I looked around the current laptop market in Nepal, and the cheapest laptops with a GTX 1070 I could find was over 2 lakhs. And those laptops only come with 7th gen processors, while this one gets an 8th Gen i7 processor, with more cores, more threads, and a higher clock speeds. Combine both and you get even better frame rates on games, faster renders, and overall better user experience.

Conclusion

These laptops are worth their asking price. Sure, for over 2 lakhs they better be worth it. The compelling factor here remains its prices and the high cost of GTX 1070 equipped laptops in Nepal. If you live somewhere in the US, the same might not apply.
