Test: MSI GF76-12UEK Katana



We’ll start today with a protocol that will change according to the feedbacks. It will of course keep an established base with some popular software and games, but will evolve according to the needs (acquisition of hardware for better measurements, addition of new games, etc.).

All benchmarks will be done in the highest performance mode available (bios and Windows), to get an idea of what the machines are worth at their maximum. As for the drivers, we will mention and use the latest official versions available.

The basic definition will be 1920×1080, but other resolutions can be added depending on the laptop’s screen. We will use the highest graphic presets available on each game. For this first review, we will of course not make a comparison. That will come later when several laptops have been tested. In terms of synthetic tests :

  • CPU
    • Cinebench R23/R20, Geekbench 5, AIDA64.
  • GPU
    • TimeSpy Extreme, Fire Strike Extreme.
  • Memory
    • AIDA64.

On the video game side with the games: we choose popular licenses, but especially have ” in game benchmark” to allow a better representation and reproducibility of performance. This also allows you to compare your results with ours without difficulty. The list will of course be extended with new games.

  • Borderlands 3 (DX12)
  • Anno 1800 (DX12)
  • Shadow Of The Tomb Raider (DX12)

The driver for the RTX 3060 is version 512.95.
