The high-end model during MSI’s Black Friday promotion is the GE66 Raider 11UH-231NL, intended for the most demanding gamer. This laptop is logically the most expensive of the three, but it also has the most powerful hardware on board. This model is equipped with an Intel Core i9-11980H processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 video card. Games are shown on a 15.6 inch UHD 4K IPS screen with 3840×2160 pixels.

All three notebooks come pre-installed with Windows 10 Home, but they offer a free upgrade to Windows 11. In this way, and with this trio, MSI aims to serve the widest possible audience of gamers, from entry-level users to heavy users.

Two MSI monitors, two audiences

Fanatic gamers know that a good monitor is an important condition for an optimal gaming experience. No matter how fast your computer’s hardware is, without a screen that can show all the details and action quickly and smoothly in a high resolution, there is little fun to be had. MSI also tries to appeal to a diverse target group on this aspect.

Players looking for an all-round gaming display without running out of costs should consider the MSI Optix G24C4 24-inch fhd 1500R Curved monitor. The 144Hz refresh rate should ensure smooth gameplay visuals, 1ms response time minimizes blurring, streaking and ghosting, and AMD FreeSync technology promises to eliminate any input lag as best it can. This screen has a curved display panel with a curvature of 1500R, which is generally experienced as the most comfortable. According to MSI, it should contribute to more immersion while gaming. MSI’s proprietary Anti-Flicker technology also promises a comfortable viewing experience by reducing the amount of flicker in the image.

Optix G24C4

For competitive gamers who don’t want to make any concessions, there’s the MSI Oculux NXG253R; a 24.5 inch 1080p IPS screen, intended for e-athletes. As one of the few 360Hz gaming monitors on the market, this display promises a gaming experience with very low input lag, fast response time and support for Nvidia’s G-Sync and VRR.

The term vrr stands for variable refresh rate. This technique allows a television or monitor to match the refresh rate in real time to the frame rate broadcast by a console or PC. If a lot of data has to be processed, the number of frames per second in a game can drop considerably, causing the image to stutter. This can be visible, for example, in games in which large explosions occur or in which many characters appear at the same time. It is immediately noticeable and is experienced as disturbing by many players. With the Oculux NXG253R you shouldn’t have this problem.

In addition, this screen supports Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer, which can help players get the most out of their system by identifying sources of lag. The monitor also promises good reflection processing and high peak brightness.

Comfortable gaming and working

The demand for gaming chairs has exploded over the past year and a half. That’s not surprising, because the pandemic made working from home the norm and gaming took off. A good, comfortable chair can offer a solution for both applications and MSI also wants to profile itself in this segment. With the MSI MAG CH120 X, the company says it offers a comfortable gaming chair with a cool and luxurious look. The gaming chair is upholstered in black PVC leather, flanked by red finishes. Due to the high density of the foam in the chair, you should be able to sustain long gaming sessions without any problem, and even working through a day or evening should not be a penny of pain.

The included neck and lumbar pillow should ensure that you adopt an ergonomic posture. Thanks to the steel wheelbase and the sturdy gas spring (class 4 certified), this chair can take a beating.
