So lets find out how well it performs in games at different resolutions and see how it compares with some other gaming laptops. For the specs theres, an 8 core 16 thread: overclockable desktop i9, 9900K CPU, 200w Nvidia, RTX, 2080 graphics. Definitely no Max Q, here and 32gb of memory in dual channel.. You can find other configurations and updated prices linked in the description.. Unfortunately, theres no option of disabling Optimus for better performance were stuck with it. So no G, Sync here. The MSI Dragon Center software allows us to set different performance profiles. With turbo mode. You have the option of setting all 8 CPU cores to 4.8 4.9 or 5.0 GHz. Ive done all testing here with a maximum of 4.9 set. As some games would crash at 5., It also allows us to overclock the graphics by 150MHz on the core and 250MHz on the memory. Ive tested with these settings. As I figure even someone that doesnt know what theyre doing can easily apply, these changes and Ive got coolerboost enabled, which basically sets the fan. Speed to maximum. Were only covering gaming performance here. So if youre new to the channel youll definitely want to get subscribed for the thermal testing and full review videos where Ill cover everything. Well start off by going through all games at all setting levels at 1080p and 4K resolutions, then afterwards well see how the Titan Compares with some other gaming laptops. 1440p wasnt tested as it wasnt a default resolution of the machine, and I couldnt easily add it as a custom.

Resolution. Battlefield 5 was tested in campaign. Mode. Ive got RTX on shown by the green bars and RTX off shown by the purple bars. At 1080p. It was still quite playable, even with RTX, on at ultra settings, where I was able to average above 60 FPS. However, we could get much higher than this. With RTX off. At 4K, it was still playable with RTX off where almost 60 FPS averages were reached at ultra settings. However, RTX wasnt going so well to the point where my frame recording software kept failing to record 1 low data. Control was tested by running through the start of the game and again Ive tested both RTX on in green and RTX off in purple.. Rtx was playable at 1080p and it actually looks good in this game were just under 60 FPS with all settings maxed out. However, as you can see, much higher is possible with RTX off. At 4K. Rtx is basically unusable, while low settings with it off played ok again near 60 FPS. However, with medium and high presets at this resolution, there were noticeable issues due to the lower frame rates. Wolfenstein Youngblood was also tested playing through the start of the game.. This one uses Vulkan and the performance was nothing short of excellent. At 1080p. I wasnt really seeing any noteworthy differences between the different setting levels at this resolution. There was hardly any change between minimum and maximum, so might as well just max it out so that it looks its best.

. This is definitely a title that would benefit more from the 1080p 144Hz or even 240Hz screen option. At 4K. The results are honestly still excellent and much better than I was expecting. If youre using the 4K screen, like Ive, got here its limited to 60Hz, and I was seeing above this for the 1 low, even at maximum settings. So not only is it looking great but its playing perfectly smoothly, while doing it. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was tested with the games built in benchmark tool and as expected due to the specs. These are some of the best results Ive seen with this title, so far. At 1080p, even ultimate settings was averaging well above 60 FPS granted the 1 low was down quite a bit. Ultra looks much better in that regard. At 4K. The results are hit hard. However. 60 FPS was still possible with the very high setting preset so still some fair results. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was also tested with the games benchmark tool and at 1080p. These are some of the best results Ive ever seen from a gaming laptop, which I guess isnt that surprising, given the hardware inside but well see how this game and others compare with different laptops. Soon. At 4K, the results drop back quite a bit again. However, medium settings was still capable of above 60 FPS averages with high settings, not too far. Behind. Fortnite was tested using the replay feature and the results were a bit lower than I was expecting.

However, this is my first time testing these specs with the new chapter 2 map, so it could just be a bit more resource intensive. In any case, there's. Absolutely no problems playing with max settings.. At 4K, epic settings was still quite usable with 60 FPS averages. However, we could more than double this just by dropping down to medium settings. PUBG was also tested using the replay feature and again great results. Here. I mean Ive got a 60Hz screen and even the 1 lows at high settings are double this. So no issues here and itd work great. If you get it with a 1080p high refresh rate screen instead. At 4K, it was still possible to average above 60 FPS, which is a pretty impressive result, while low settings and below allowed for 100 FPS and above.. Alright. Last time I tested a crazy, powerful machine. Some people got upset that CSGO wasnt included. So here we go. At 1080p. The results are well above average due to our increased CPU power and theres, a nice improvement to 1 lows, too. The averages at 4K arent too bad, but the 1 lows drop quite a bit. However, I doubt many people would be looking to play at this resolution. Anyway, I only included it because I tested everything else: at 4K, too. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark. At 1080p. Ultra settings was just below 200 FPS with relatively high 1 low performance too.

So, as expected, no issues here granted the results at max settings werent all that much above mid range options. At 4K. Ultra settings still had above 60 FPS even for the 1 low, so while lower comparatively to the 1080p results just covered. These are still good results. Considering the resolution and 4K 60Hz screen., The Witcher 3 is fairly GPU heavy. So it was no surprise that the results are close to many other RTX 2080 laptops Ive tested.. I dont think it needs a super high frame rate to play. So, although ultra settings is a step back compared to the other setting levels, it was still playing perfectly fine.. I thought 4K wasnt going too badly, even at ultra settings. However, the high setting preset was needed if I wanted to average above 60 FPS in my testing. Borderlands 3 was tested with the games built in benchmark, and it must be one of the few times Ive ever seen decent performance from the highest setting preset at 1080p.. This wasnt the case at 4K. However, it was still possible to achieve above 60 FPS for the average, with the medium setting preset at this resolution. Assassins. Creed Odyssey was also tested with the games benchmark tool and as a test thats on the CPU heavy side were seeing great results. Thanks to the 9900K, with above 60 FPS averages from the ultra high preset.. That may not sound like much but thats. Quite a good result for a laptop.

At 4K, the results drop back quite a bit and are honestly more in line with what wed see from more mid range laptops at 1080p, with the medium setting preset just shy of a 60 FPS average. Lets also take a Look at how this config of the MSI GT76 Titan compares with other laptops use these results as a rough guide only as they were tested at different times with different drivers. Ive tested Battlefield 5 with ultra settings and Ive got the GT76 highlighted in red near similarly Specced machines. In this test, its taking the lead in terms of average frame rate, although it was only just ahead of the ASUS Mothership, but its worth. Considering that costs a lot more too., The 1 low was lower, though, and slightly behind the Alienware 51m. However, its still higher than the average FPS from our 1660 Ti machines down the bottom. So an impressive result. Here are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark.. This time the Titan was a little behind the other 2080 machines. In average frame rate, however, the 1 low is right up there with the best result from the ASUS Mothership. So again, pretty crazy results compared to most others.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings.. The Titan was in between the Alienware 51m and ASUS Mothership. Basically, all of these machines are on a completely different level compared to the others.

Due to the high end specs. As weve seen, MSIs GT76 Titan is offering serious levels of performance, which is to be expected. Its a thick machine with an overclocked 8 core desktop 9900K CPU and overclocked RTX 2080 graphics, capable of running up to 200 watts. 1080p gaming was of course, no problem at all if youre using it primarily for gaming, youd, probably be better served by the 1080p 144Hz Or even 240Hz option., With the 4K screen Ive got here. 1440P would also likely be fine with these specs, based on my experience with other laptops that have similar hardware, while native 4K was hit or miss depending on the game and setting level. But for the most part Id say, these specs are 4K capable for a laptop.. There are definitely some compromises to be made with a machine like this, mainly in terms of size, battery life portability and price., Its more of a desktop replacement that can still be moved rather than your regular gaming laptop, but well look into this in more detail in The upcoming full review video. Ill, be testing thermal performance in the next detailed video. So if youre new to the channel consider getting subscribed for that, as well as for future tech.
