Review : MSI Titan GT77 HX 13VI


Synthetic CPU performance

Synthetic CPU performance

Let’s see what this machine has in store, we start with the CPU and memory performances on some synthetic benchmarks. The i9 13950HX on board this machine will be compared to the results obtained with an i7 13700K and an i9 13900K.

Cinebench R20

We start with Cinebench R20, here the 13950HX manages to match the 13700K but remains behind the 13900K.

Cinebench R23

We start with Cinebench R23, here the 13950HX manages to match the 12900K but remains behind the 13900K.

Geekbench 3

On Geekbench 3, the performance is at the level of the 13900K, however the memory at 4000CL32 greatly reduces the performance of the 13950HX with less than 8000 points in memory score. Unfortunately we can’t set it to 4800C40 because of a BIOS issue. Even if we change the kit for a 5600C40 with Hynix A die we stay at 4000CL30. This greatly impacts the performance of this CPU and therefore the performance in game.

Geekbench 5

For Geekbench 5, we are on the back burner compared to the i7 13700K and very far from the 13900K.

Aida 64

For AIDA64, we look mainly at the RAM and here the performance is disappointing. High latency and low throughput. Even entry level laptops with DDR5 manage to do better at 4800CL40. MSI should have equipped these Raptor Lake gaming laptops with DDR5 at 5600 Mt/s which is the speed recommended by Intel in JEDEC.
