Compare Katana And Sword Laptop


Compare Katana And Sword Laptop  – The latest artistic collaborations that have been seen in MSI have to do with the MSI Katana or the MSI Sword and Tsuyoshi Nagano (creator of 3D video game characters), who gave them a touch of Japanese personality so characteristic with the commercial names they receive.

Coming to Tsuyoshi, it was clear that the MSI Sword would have that Japanese touch that invokes the legendary spirituality of swords. In the case of the Sword, MSI wants to give users of these limit of the edition laptops the gift of a miniature of the Samurai helmet with two katanas to make the concept of this model clear.

What Is It That Distinguishes Them On or after The Rest?

The distinctive touch in design with specifications that delight those who will be collect  limit edition laptops. If you ask my opinion, the Sword is my favorite.

There was no better way than to invoke all that Samurai spirit by powering the MSI Sword with Intel Core 11th generation and NVIDIA RTX 3000 graphics cards, the best of each house

Compact Device for a 17.3-inch device

The MSI Katana GF76 comes in a jet black design with a backlit keyboard with red accents. If you don’t like the gloomy look, the Device is also available as the Sword 17 with a white chassis and blue keyboard backlight.

Connectivity Process


MSI hasn’t placing  any ports on the rear, so everything is situates on the left and right sides. Although the number of ports is moderately generous, the connectivity could still be improve. There is only one USB-C port, and it does not support DisplayPort. Thunderbolt is also not available. Outside monitors can only be connect to the gaming laptop using the HDMI port, which outputs 4K UHD content up to 60Hz.

All ports are easy to reach but could have use a bit more space between them on the right side of the case.

Input Devices: Keyboard With Numeric Keypad And Gaming Hotkey


MSI takes advantage of the 17.3-inch Device’s space for a keyboard with solid key size and a cramm number pad on the right. Observing the case, there would have been more room left and right, but this is probably impossible due to the internal components. Especially the number keys, but also the direction keys, are pretty minor. On the other hand, the WASD keys, which are significant for gamers, are of a comfortable size, as are the other letters. In addition, there are special gaming hotkeys for exact functions and the normal double mapping of the F1 to F12 keys. Unfortunately, there is no fingerprint sensor on board.

Essential travel is 1.7mm. Overall it’s plenty for a laptop and solid for a bulky gaming device. Noise development remains pleasantly moderate when typing fast. The typing experience is good, allowing the Device to be use for gaming and an occasional typing session. However, there are better alternatives when it comes to office devices.

The keyboard illumination can be familiar on three levels, and it ensures that the keys label in red are well lit and recognizable. It lights up exclusively in red. There are no changeable colors or other gimmicks in the MSI Katana GF76.

Touch panel

The touchpad, which is only slightly recessed, is locating in the center under the universe bar and measures 10.5 x 6.5 cm. It’s relax to the touch, and the two-click surfaces on the bottom left and right are not noticeably noisy. The touchpad works with sufficient precision, so there are hardly any points of criticism in our review of the Katana GF76 in this regard.

Screen: Fast 144hz Refresh Rate, But Also Has A Lot Of Weak Points

Compare Katana And Sword For Msi Laptop  – In addition to the controlling hardware, the 17.3-inch screen is one of the highlights of the Katana GF76, according to the manufacturer. It refreshes at a rate of 144 Hz, which provides a smooth gaming experience combining  with the level of performance. The LED-backlit IPS panel has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a matte surface

Apart from the modest brightness, the remaining values are also relatively poor. The screen doesn’t even cover 60% of the sRGB color space. Response times, which are even more relevant to gamers, aren’t all that great either. While we could stretch this list quite a bit, we’ll keep it short: the screens on most of the comparison devices are significantly better and have refresh rates that are at least as fast.

Although the brilliance of around 250 cd/m² is not exceptionally high, the Device is still acceptable for outdoor use, at least when the sun is not too bright. This is mainly due to the matte and non-reflective screen. The flat screen barely reflects light sources, so you always have a good game view. The anti-glare panel also has a benefit when playing indoors. However, as the Device is relatively bulky by design due to it being a gaming laptop, it is unlikely to be use for  outdoors.
