MSI GT76 TITAN DT 9SG

  • OSWindows 10 Pro
  • Display17.3" (UHD 3840x2160)
  • ProcessorIntel 9th Gen Core i9-9900K | 5000 MHz
  • Memory1 TB 2x Samsung PM961 MZVLW256HEHP (RAID 0)/64 GBGB DDR4

Sporting a desktop graphics Intel Core i9-9900K coupled with an RTX 2080, the MSI GT76 TITAN 9SG has the same configuration as the Alienware Area-51m. Both machines use massive power bricks which when plugged in trigger an automatic factory overclock of 32-33% for the processors. Even the graphics cards are the same RTX 2080 but MSI has a slightly higher base clock of 1575 MHz whereas the Alienware unit has that set to 1515 MHz. Boost clocks are also different with the MSI unit clocked at 1755 MHz and the Alienware at 1720 MHz. So performance wise, these two are nearly similar until you consider the next two important things in a computer, the RAM and the SSD boot drives. MSI’s gaming laptop has RAM clocked at 2666 MHz and uses two NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 for the boot drive.
