MSI Stealth GS66 (2022) review of laptop for gaming

There is a huge difference between the MSI GS66 Stealth gaming laptop I reviewed a little over a year ago and the one sitting in front of me now. Not in appearance, given – it’s the same sleek chassis that MSI has used for its GS66 machines for generations – but the performance is very different thanks to the core components chosen for this 12th generation build.

The 2021 version of this machine chose the Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU and paired it with a 10th generation Core i7 10870H processor. Compared to the Core i9 12900H MSI has fallen into this laptop, it’s just a silicon dunce sitting in the corner of the class right now. It is also interesting that the more modern Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti used in the new GS66 Stealth can also be compared to last year’s model.
