Whether you’re a hardcore-gamer, VR-enthusiast, engineer or 3D artist, you obviously want the best rig you can get your hands on. But money’s tight for everyone at the moment and usually laptops with top of the line specs, such as an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or 3080 GPU, don’t come cheap. Usually. Luckily for you, MSI doesn’t hold any truck with ‘usual’ – its Gameverse sale is here to make sure you can get your hands on high-grade hardware without breaking the bank.
Inspired by its experience of uniting VR technology and stunning 2D and 3D design, MSI is looking to bring together content creators and gamers to collaborate and compete using its laptops – hence the tongue-in-cheek reference to the Metaverse. And it’s doing this by slashing prices on all its laptops with a 3070 graphics card up – meaning you can get a cutting-edge high-performance laptop from as little as £999!
With so many of MSI’s series reduced, you don’t have to be a gamer to benefit either. While FPS players wanting to max out their reaction times definitely won’t be disappointed, there are also sleek, subtle laptops as well-suited for the office as playing Overwatch 2 and high-powered rockets perfect for engineers or 3D animators.
Check out some of the ranges that have reductions.
Raider GE series
For those looking to level up their gaming, MSI’s Raider GE series is the natural choice. Their displays offer up to 360Hz refresh rates to help you react in the blink of an eye, while top of the range components like 12th-gen Intel i7 CPUs and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs mean you’ll be able to enjoy top-level performance and sumptuous ray-traced graphics on even the most demanding games.
Stealth GS series
If you’ve always wanted to be a secret agent… well you should probably be talking to MI5, not T3. But the Stealth GS series will definitely make you feel like you’re working in deep cover. Blending in any professional environment with its thin bezel design and up to 4K screen, it hides a secret – it’s a highly skilled special operative. With max specs that include a 12th-gen Intel i9 processor, a 16GB GeForce RTX 3080 GPU and a 99.9Whr battery, it can tackle any game you throw at it… and still have plenty of juice left to ace your presentation afterwards.
Vector GP series
The Vector GP series isn’t playing around. Designed with engineers in mind, it utilises the hybrid core architecture of its up to 12th-gen Intel i9 CPU to crank through high-level calculations like they’re primary school arithmetic. Whether you’re whipping up immersive VR experiences or designing 3D 8K animations, these laptops won’t even break a sweat.
With a moniker like Crosshair, there’s no prizes for guessing what kind of gaming these laptops are designed for… and it ain’t match-three puzzlers. Packing up to a 12th-gen Intel i9 processor and a full-HD 360Hz display, the Crosshair is perfect for helping crack-shot FPS players to dispatch opponents even faster. Meanwhile, its sci-fi-esque yellow and black design are the perfect way to warn your rivals you mean business.
Pulse GL series
With its titanium grey metal casing and contour lines, the Pulse GL was designed by Belgian 3D artist Maarten Verhoeven to embody his vision of the soldiers of the future. Clearly this rig is taking no prisoners. And despite its really accessible pricing – reduced as low as £1,399 – you’re getting an awful lot of power here: its components include up to a 12th-gen Intel i9 processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card and a QHD 165Hz display. That’s some serious gaming performance for not much moolah.
Katana GF series
Comparisons to a blade here are apt. The Katana series is sharp – both in terms of its sleek styling and how quickly its components can cut through the competition. Perfect for e-sports enthusiasts, its max specs include a hybrid core 12th-gen Intel CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and a screen that can hit a blistering 240Hz refresh rate. All that and it’s had £100 slashed off its price.
If you’re something of an aesthete – or just need some serious oomph for creating content – MSI’s Creator series is quite literally designed for you. Inspired by the Golden Ratio, its 16:10 screen is perfect for whipping up 3D models and magazines alike. Meanwhile, the fact its Nvidia GeForce 30 series card offers twice the rendering performance and up to double the memory of the 20 series means it’s great for handling 8K raw videos. And, as if you needed further convincing, its slim lines and lunar grey body make it a truly gorgeous package.
