Two review videos featuring MSI’s new laptops, GE66 Raider and GS66 Stealth, were published on GenTechPC’s YouTube channel but were set to private later on.
Both the laptops share the same i7-10870H processor paired with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070. There’s a difference in the variant of the RTX 3070 installed; the GE66 Raider features the RTX 3070 Max-P as it is targeted towards gamers while the GS66 Stealth features RTX 3070 Max-Q variant as it is targeted towards people who require a sleek design.
The Max-P variant of RTX 3070 features a boost clock speed of up to 1620 MHz along with a TGP of 115W. On the other hand, the Q-variant operates at a boost clock speed of up to 1290 MHz and an 80W TGP.
As for the scores, the Max-P variant scored 27940 points in 3DMark Fire Strike (Graphics), while the Max-Q model only scored 21337 points concluding that the P variant is 31% faster.
Despite NVIDIA officially encouraging OEMs in public statements to clearly list TGPs and clock speeds for their RTX 30 Laptop GPUs, MSI did not comply with this; instead MSI is providing some misleading information to their customers ans they will end up purchasing GS66 Stealth laptop (with 30% slower GPU) rather than GE66 Raider.
