    Hello dear,

    Firstly, congratulations on the review.

    I asked this before … but at that time you had not yet reviewed the GE66.


    "Considering the same specifications – i7-10875H, 32 GB RAM, RTX2070 – (regardless of the price) which are recommended in order of preference for architecture work (2D design and 3D rendering).

    – MSI GE66
    – MSI GE75
    – ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 17 G732
    – ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 G532

    Just analyzing performance for work…"

    1) Now that you have reviewed the GE66, do you still recommend the GE75?
    2) Is the GE66 better than the ones mentioned above?

    Last important question
    3) Is the GE66 better than the Asus ROG Strix Scar (G532/G732), the Gigabyte Aorus 15X and the Lenovo Legion 7i to use in architecture work (2D design and 3D rendering)?

      Have you actually read the conclusion of this review? I haven't tested the Aorus 15x or the Legion 7i, so can't comment on those. I would pick this over the Scar 15 and over the GE75 if you're OK with a 15-inch screen.

    I don't speak fluent English, so I used google translate to read the entire review. I got the idea that you also analyzed these, sorry for the misinterpretation.
    So, in a simple way …
    Would you say:
    1. GE66
    2. GE75
    3. Asus Scar …

    That's right?

    To use in architecture work (2D design and 3D rendering), do you have any other models that you have already analyzed and recommended to check?

      Do you also require a high color accuracy screen with close to 100% AdobeRGB coverage? If no, these are solid options

    Yes, 100% Adobe RGB coverage is an important factor. Any suggestions as an alternative to the GE66?

    Thank you very much for your support

      MSI mentions a 100% AdobeRGB screen option for the GE66, but I'm not seeing that in stores. If that's a requirement, perhaps you should look into some of the Lenovo, Dell or HP workstations available in your region.

    Hey I wanted to thank u for all the amazing work u are doing and this site helps me a lot finding a new laptop. I bought the MSI GE66 Raider 10SE-677NL but I returned it because the speakers were horrible. The fans were so quite loud and even when I opened up a browser. My friends could hear the fan with the internal microphone. My question is if the 30xx versions of MSI raider have the same issue's?

      It's the same chassis, so yes, that shouldn't have changed. Did you go through the power profiles and choose the right ones? As far as I remember, the fans were audible on the Extreme Performance profile with light use, but quieter on the Balanced profile. If you're looking for something totally quiet, the 2021 ROGs have the ability to completely idle the fans with light use, as long as the hardware doesn't go over 60C
