It’s CES 2021 and in conjunction to MSI’s 35th anniversary, the company had a major virtual launch event – aka MSIology that is heavily inspired by the Babylonian mythology. The launch event saw the company launching the exclusive MSI GE76 Raider Dragon Edition Tiamat, and various brand new laptops.

Of course, the laptops’ key highlight is the use of highly-sought-after NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics which provides a huge boost in graphical performance enhancement.

MSI GE76 Raider Dragon Edition Tiamat

GE76 1280x800

You’re reading that right, that’s the full name of the special edition GE76 Raider. The design is inspired by the Mesopotamian goddess Tiamat. As the mother of all Gods, MSI is equalling the new GE76 as a gaming laptop that holds the supreme power.

GS66 Stealth

The GS66 Stealth is my personal favourite as it camouflages its gaming potential in a matte black chassis. Making you believing it as a standard business laptop but deep down it is an extremely powerful gaming machine with RTX 3080.
