MSI Vector GP68HX Has Just About Everything Except A Decent Webcam – PC Perspective

The Last of the 13th Gen Laptops?

MSI Vector GP68HX that was sent to TweakTown for review. Uses Intel's i9-13950HX and may be the last new model with this generation of chips. It ships with a somewhat disappointing 16GB of DDR5-4800, but can be upgraded to 96GB. Happily, the RTX 4080 has 12GB of VRAM to aid the performance of the base model. Your 1TB of storage is PCIe 4.0 and networking is 1GbE with Wi-Fi 6e. USB is impressive, with two 3.2 Type-A ports, two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, both of which support DisplayPort and one supports USB-PD and finally a proper Thunderbolt 4 port.

The 16″ IPS display can handle up to 144Hz, so gaming on the local monitor will definitely be smooth. Overall it came close to the top in every benchmark, offering more than acceptable performance for its $2200 price tag. It does represent an interesting dilemma though, should you go with the 13th Gen Intel-based MSI Vector GP68HX's solid design advantages, or should you stick with the Raptor Lake-based model and hope it doesn't melt? will go
