Test: MSI GF76-12UEK Katana


Temperature and Consumption


Temperatures measured during the gaming sessions were relatively correct for a laptop, with a rise to more than 80-90° on the CPU and GPU internally.

Externally, the chassis remained hot but not burning, with temperatures around 40° on the keyboard, allowing you to continue playing for several hours without worrying.

As for the power consumption, it remained within the manufacturers’ figures, with a maximum application of about 90W for the i7-12700H and about 110W for the RTX 3060.

In games (Borderlands 3), we had combined CPU and GPU figures in the range of 100 to 110W, allowing for a problem-free load with the 240W block.
