MSI gaming laptops featuring NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 mobile GPUs have been listed by US retailer Microcenter.

2023 MSI gaming laptops with GeForce RTX 40 GPUs from $1,199, up to $4,600 for the RTX 4090 configuration

As expected, the MSI GeForce RTX 40 high-end laptop lineup will hit retail on February 8th, followed by the most popular parts on February 22nd. Most of these will start being made available for pre-orders on February 1st, as reported yesterday. However, laptops will vary in specifications and configurations, which can also be decided by the user, resulting in vastly different price points.

Starting with the high-end stuff, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 laptops should start at $1,999, however, MSI’s Raider & Titan offerings start well above the starting price range. MSI Raider GE78HX with Core i9-13980HX, 64GB DDR5-5600, 2TB SSD, RTX 4080 comes with a price of $3999.99. The 32GB DDR5-4800 option costs a little less at $3,299.99.

Keep in mind that the Raider is not the Major. The MSI Titan GT77HX is the flagship of the line and features the same specs but adds an RTX 4090 to the mix. The price difference between these laptops ends up at $700 with the Titan costing $4,699.99. This is a big price to pay for a laptop but you also get a very fast mobile device that you can move around and take with you anywhere you want.

Now for things mainstream, MSI’s Katana 15 B13VEK-277US isn’t far behind the $999 starting price of the new RTX 40 series laptops. The laptop costs $1,199.99 and features an Intel Core i7-13620H processor, 16GB DDR5-4800, 1TB SSD, and an RTX 4050 laptop GPU. You can even find an RTX 4060 Katana laptop which is almost identical in design and price but on par With an older Core i7-12650H CPU. If you want a 13th Gen CPU with an RTX 4060, MSI has the Pulse 15 B13VFK-280US which comes with a Core i7-13700H CPU and is priced at $1,499.99. Finally, we have the PULSE laptop configuration with an RTX 4070 priced at $1,699.99.
