RTX 3080 Powered MSI GE76 Raider Launching January 26 For $2899

Now that the watered down online only event of CES 2021 is finished, the next stage is for the computer brands to launch some of the new goodies presented during the trade show.

And MSI will be among the very first ones to launch some of their new flagship laptops in just a few days, as some of the MSI Raider and Stealth editions that were announced at CES, will be launched on January 26.

The 17.3-inch MSI GE76 Raider is among the first to launch, and this is the model with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, a 5.3 GHz Intel Core i7-10870H processor, 32GB DDR4 RAM (3200 MHz), and 1TB NVMe SSD storage. An RTX 3070 version is also available for $600 less.

So a very nice setup, even if it's still not the very highest performance you can get in January 2021. But it's always interesting to see what the new standards are at the beginning of the year.

MSI GE76 Raider (10UH-231) may only feature a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display, but it's with a 300 Hz and 3ms response time display, 2x Dynaudio 1W speakers with 2W woofers and Nahimic 3 audio, Killer LAN E3100, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, Matrix display and 60 Hz 4K support, and of course the new Mystic Light bar.
