    Desktop performance in a laptop

    I bought the Katana 15 B13V with 16 GB of DDR5 Ram, RTX 4070 gpu, and i7-13620H cpu on Prime Day marked down to $1349 from $1599.I primarily bought this because my desktop’s motherboard uses DDR4 and is becoming dated and I wanted to play Baldur’s Gate 3 at max settings. I’d like to build another desktop, but want to drop that kind of money until DDR6 is a thing instead of building it in the middle of the DDR5 Lifecycle. That’s still a few years out.So this was a great purchase for my needs. It is literally desktop performance in a laptop at a mid-range price.Let’s start with the cons and why I don’t careThe display isn’t the best. Don’t get me wrong, its great, but not anything special. That doesn’t bother me, because its connected to my 4k monitor. Who cares about laptop screens anyway. 4k resolution doesn’t make much of a functional difference on a small screen. Costs were cut there for sure. Costs were probably also cut on the battery. It doesn’t last long not plugged in on normal loads, and its probably not even feasible to use it unplugged while gaming. This would suck if I planned to use it unplugged, but again, this matters not to me. There is also a technology implemented called CoolerBoost 5. Its pretty necessary to run when gaming newer games at max settings. It gets PlayStation loud. If you’re an audiophile, then you’re going to need some good noise-canceling headphones to really enjoy anything on this machine. This doesn’t bother me, because I’m not an audiophile, and even if I was, I have a couple great sets of noise-canceling headphones. It also doesn’t bother me because without it, all of the great things about this thing wouldn’t mean squat…. let me explain…Now for the Pro’sThis thing runs great without load on balanced power settings (No CoolerBoost). Without CoolerBoost, its about as quiet as it comes. I only use it for browsing and playing music outside of gaming. It does great. I haven’t tried watching any 4k videos on it yet, but I imagine it would handle that well on balanced power settings as well.Remember when I mentioned the noise level from the CoolerBoost 5 as a con. Well, Coolerboost is probably just as important of a feature as any of the hardware this machine packs. Gaming laptops get a bad rep, mostly because they literally burn up a lot faster than a desktop and are difficult and expensive to fix when they do. The reason being is inadequate cooling. This is a tiny box to fit all of those extreme heat producing components in. Getting desktop-like cpu temps and gpu temps in a laptop should be a pipedream. Seeing temps in the 85-90 degree Celsius range or higher is just part of the territory. With CoolerBoost on, this thing hangs in the 60-75 degree range with BG3 running max settings. That’s as good or better than my desktop. Have you heard of temp-throttling? Yeah, that’s only a thing if you let it be a thing with this machine. That said, without CoolerBoost active while running BG3 at max settings, I watch those temps move to the Upper 80s and low 90s, like one would expect with this kind of hardware in such a small box. It is well worth the noise to have a machine packing an i7 13th gen chip and RTX 4070 gpu that can sport desktop temps while actually using the hardware at its potential.Final ThoughtsThis machine is fantastic if you’re looking to replace a desktop with a laptop that will likely last. All of the right corners have been cut. Due to the temps sitting at desktop level, I anticipate the hardware components to potentially last indefinitely. This will still be a very serviceable and more portable machine when I do get my desktop built. The potential issues I see are needing to replace fans at some point due to the CoolerBoost. They could also last too, its just a possible logical consequence of running the fans at high RPMS. I imagine the most important fix that I’ll run across is replacing the battery. Those things will always go bad eventually, but more quickly if there are periods of high humidity in your gaming area. Think about spring or fall days where the AC isn’t running. Years of that will kill a battery.

    Seems to be fast and efficient

    I have only had this a short time but this has really been a nice machine. I have even used it for VR games and it doesn’t bog it down a bit. I haven’t decided yet if the problems I’m seeing with it are garbage installed by MSI or garbage from Windows. I don’t care for the pop up adds for the junk I don’t want or need.Oh I will get it all weeded out eventually, I just miss the days when you all the crap was offered elsewhere and didn’t come force installed at new.The laptop itself looks great the display is clean and amazing to look at and use.I’m very pleased with the small weight of this machine, I think its predecessor is 3x heavier.I’m not pleased by the lack of USB ports found on this machine, but I did find a reasonably priced hub that turns one Type C port into 4 USB3 ports so I can get all the dongles plugged in and still have room for the important things.The laptop does seem to put out a lot of heat, but once I got it elevated on my laptop stand it doesn’t seem as bad. (Perhaps the vents aren’t large enough to allow the heat to escape properly when it’s close to the desk) I would even suggest a laptop cooling pad. But I think that would be good in any situation.

    Nice gaming laptop

    Gift for my son for Christmas and he is loving it. It handles every game he plays very well, at very high frame rates and high setting. He has it connected to a 32” curved 1080p monitor and in most games he is getting 200-250 fps. The fan can get a bit loud when running the video heavy games but he uses headphones most of the time so the loud fan noise isn’t an issue. The screen on the laptop is also pretty good for when he takes the laptop to friends to play. SDD is fine only the RAM we may need to upgrade in the near future. But all in all a very solid gaming laptop.

    Great Value Just Know What You’re Getting

    I have now had this laptop for four days over the weekend, and my initial impressions are as follows:Great processor and gpu for the price point, especially if bought on sale. I purchased mine on Prime Day one. I think it was $300 off which was a great deal. Then Prime Day two rolls around and its another $100 off. Slight issue with Amazon because they won’t just match the price. At first I tried to cancel the order and wasn’t able to so I contacted customer service and they tried to cancel it and told me they couldn’t. Since they don’t price match, I was suppose to order another one for the cheaper price and return the first order. Kind of a hassle, but saving another $100 was worth it. I guess I got lucky because I got an email a couple hours later saying the original order was successfully cancelled.As far as the laptop itself, I played with it over the weekend and it runs great. High end processor (i-7 13620H) and graphics card (RTX 4070) are the selling points. No much else with that combo for under $1600.The size and weight of the system are pretty good. My last laptop was an Alienware 15, which was bulky and heavy. This is much lighter and has a pretty subtle chassis which is exactly what I wanted. The RGB keyboard is pretty standard, it felt a bit small at first but I’m sure it will just take some getting used to. I haven’t played with the customizable colors yet but the function keys allow it to be brightened, dimmed or turned off and on.The screen (15.6 FHD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels) is adequate, just know what you’re getting. 1080p is FHD (full high definition). That is most likely why it’s price point is less than some other laptops with higher end resolutions like QHD or 4k. That being said, on a smaller 15″ screen FHD still looks great. The refresh rate is fast (144Hz) and I ran well above 60fps on max settings flawlessly on CP2077.SSD size (1TB) is pretty standard, it is gen4, currently gen5 is the fastest, but gen4 is plenty fast enough. One issue people are having is the second ssd slot does not come with a mounting bracket or screw to hold it down. I knew of this issue before purchasing and I am planning on installing a second ssd (also ordered on Prime day for big discount). I contacted MSI thru live chat and they are sending me the mounting bracket. The whole process took less than 10 min. Minor irritation but not a big issue.RAM is good (16gb), I plan to upgrade to 32gb soon when the bracket arrives and I am installing the second ssd. I didn’t put too much stress on the system while playing it over the weekend but it held decently with only the 16gb of RAM.The major issue I have with this laptop is the battery life, It is absolutely horrendous. I started my gaming session (Diablo4) at 100% and after an hour I was down to 32%, and D4 isn’t the most system demanding game. So maybe get an hour and half of straight gaming out of it unplugged. This is the only reason it didn’t get 5 stars.Overall, at this price point, (especially if you can find it on sale and stay plugged in) it is well worth it. After upgrading the RAM and installing a second SSD (both less than $100 each) any comparable system would be well over $2k.Update: Received mounting bracket for SSD within a week of contacting MSI customer support. Quick and easy install of SSD and RAM. Battery life still sucks and is only down point of this laptop. If it got 2+ hours of gaming battery life it would be an easy 5 stars.

    Now, this is what I have been waiting for!

    It works great. Love MSI Center. Does not crash or hang up. All of my old games load and play. Did not work like that before. Automatically sets compatibility modes and asks if worked or not so can adjust or Leave the settings. Been spot on every time.Running new games on extreme and high settings. No issues at all. Forza Horizon 5, Red Dead Redemption, etc…. are real cool. No issues. The graphics are OUTSTANDING. On Laptop screen and on my 70″ TV.Worth the price. Spent enough money on things that should work.This DOES work. Quite nicely.Uninstaller One Drive cloud crap and Microsoft 365 so I don’t lose my pictures and they are not interfering with other important things.Sure like the Start menu a lot better. Simple and easy.

    Unstable fps. Windows 11. Bad delivery methods.

    The media could not be loaded.

    Before reading this review, keep in mind that the sample size is 1(ONE) laptop.I cannot say for certain that all laptops of these series are bad, but i can say that 100% of this series of laptops that i have purchased (1 btw) is complete dog;dr-delivery is nightmare for working class stiff (unless WFH)-product comes preinstalled with windows 11, which is annoying for anyone who cares about having any control of their system.-all this bloatware that comes pre-attached with windows 11, and nvidia drivers, as well as norton anti-virus (LOL) which you CANNOT shut off-frame rate in this copy was dog poo, (extremely unstable hitting lows of 30, highs of 200, average about 40fps)-absolutely chugging when it comes to, say, 100 tabs (don’t look at me like that, there are people like me out there)=was unable to test durability because thinking of returning it in the first week=did not test battery life, as was plugged in from the start and being sent back=did not test speakers or keyboard or touchpad because i like my physical addons+1tb ssd seems cool i guess. people pay good money for this component alone+physically, structure is flat and airflow seems pretty decent without any addons+screen seems pretty huge for a laptopoverall 1/10 stars (for my kind of utilization (gaming, browsing too many tabs at once, and a little bit of programming)Unnecessary Rant:Why on earth does a 1,300$ laptop “made” “FOR GAMING” hit 30 fps in ye-olden games such as-dota 2-league of legends (literally made with potato pc’s in mind)-Team fortress 2 using mastercomfig (Admittedly, tf2 is poorly optimized)Admittedly ran Battlefield 2042 pretty well with minor hiccups, but i run every game at min settings??sure, it hits 200 fps (ON OCCASION), but the monitor’s refresh rate is 144??? so what’s the point of going all the way up to 200 and then shooting down to 30????The fps simply isn’t stable, and jumps from 30 to 200, averaging maybe 40 from what i can tell?Last 7 year old msi laptop that was literally coming apart at the seams was performing better in these games, and it was gtx 1060. I bought this laptop to replace it, thinking i was buying cutting edge.the only thing it cut was my wallet.Also prone to freezing when simply alt tabbing from games to work, and freezing when loading too many tabs on browser of your choice (admittedly, this was a limit test of hardware capabilities)Not to mention, comes pre-installed with windows 11, which holds your hand and corrects you when it comes to running your system. This system was straight up ignoring regedit alterations for windows settings. Not good on the programming front as well (though the fix is simply booting another distro, which should come easily to any medium-experience dev).Delivery was a nightmare, though it was the better of two evils.Amazon delivery gave prediction from 0800-2200 of certain day, so I had to call out of work.I did not respond in the 5 minute window in which they told me delivery man was present (partially my fault i guess, but a 5 minute window from a 14 hour window???)next day, i took another day off from work to sit outside 40 mins in advance (when notification said delivery driver was 9 stops away).Amazon driver required my passcode to be entered into his device before he could give me the goods.The other option was to leave it on doorstep and pray a porch pirate does not find it, which would be worse.Recommended to buy this stuff directly from a store, or from a third party drop off.

    An excellent gaming laptop for the price

    I purchased this laptop to replace my 2021 ASUS ROG Strix G15 gaming laptop, and I am not disappointed.Pros:- Not too heavy. Definitely lighter than the ASUS!- Not as loud as my ASUS when the fan kicks on- For the price, it is pretty snappy! I got 1TB of SSD space, and 16GB RAM, and so far, I’ve played games like Starfield at high or higher settings.- The Gaming Mode is intelligent enough to clock down when the laptop is under light load, and clock up when a game starts, which is niceCons:- The battery life sucks. I expected that, so I’m not upset about it. Kinda par for the course for gaming laptops- The screen is 1080p. It looks fine, not the nicest I’ve seen, but it is decent and has a good refresh rate, so it isn’t a *big* deal.- The fan does get loud when playing game. Once again, I kind of expected that.- When playing a game, and the fan spins up, the left side of the laptop gets pretty warm, so watch your hand!Overall I am very pleased with this purchase!

    Great Value

    I purchased this on Black Friday as a Christmas gift for my daughter. She loves gaming and is about to start college and this computer gives her the best of both worlds.It was s heavier than her last laptop but it does so much more and has 1TB of memory. Which is amazing.So far she loves it and none of her games lag or freeze up. The picture quality is beautiful.I am very satisfied with this purchase.

    Superior Performance

    Purchased as an upgrade over my older Acer Nitro 5Destroys my gaming desktop by over 3000 points on the performance test. Fans are pretty quiet even during gaming. BG3 plays very well.I’m usually an AMD guy, but my first Intel/Nvidia purchase in YEAR’S! Not disappointed.Baulders Gate 3 is flawless and everything else runs perfect.

    Solid Gaming Laptop

    Solid laptop right out of the box. Probably the easiest laptop to open up to do upgrades to. Was able to upgrade the RAM to 32GB easily. Only real complaint is that for the second NVMe slot there is no hole or screw or anything. There is a foam block there so I cut a piece out to use it to help hold down the drive and also have some protection from the top. I keep the laptop docked on a station so shouldn’t really be an issue, but we’ll see how it fairs when I have to travel with it.

    Ok, the plastic is cheap.But the machine is impressive. The plan was to use it for gaming so it’ll sit on a desk and I won’t look at it or move it.I am upgrading to the same machine with better spec. Customer service is very helpful.

    Gaming on it is Great! I game at 4k on my desktop but switching to this for when i need to be on the go and it still looks great and ZERO lost In performance. My only gripe is windows 11 smh . Anything outside of playing games is a hassle with how buggy this OS is .

    I normally go for cheaper laptops but this was well worth the money. It feels solid without being overly heavy, and runs really well. I haven’t had any issues at all with it so far, and the fact that it’s from a major brand means that if I need to replace a part later down the line it will be really easy to find that part online along with a guide on how to install the part.

    Get more ram for gaming/3d work

    If youre using it for basic internet surfing, you solid. But for gaming and heavy hitting editing, upgrade & install 32GB of RAM. The hardware is strong and smooth, but it’s needs more ram to make it run smoother on Ultra settings in games. When playing older games you’re solid, but when playing newer games or from the Xbox One/ps4 era on Ultra 60fps+, you need more ram. Compare this to a bugatti with a small fuel tank. Car is good and can go good for miniscule driving to the store, but if you want that car to rev for fast long distance driving/crazier racing (which of course it can) you’ll need a bigger fuel tank (hense the ram upgrade)

    Powerful gaming machine

    This laptop has been amazing so far to play starfield. I was surprised that It was able to handle Ultra settings at 4K at 60 fps with overclocking. The fans do a good job at keeping the unit cool. This machine can handle any AAA title at high settings with no compromise to FPS. But playing games with DLLS is where this machine shines. No issues whatsoever. While the battery life leaves a lot to be desired, I got this machine mostly for gaming at home connected to a 1440 monitor. At that task this laptop excels. Happy with this purchase so far. I did get in contact with MSI to send me the hardware needed for the extra SSD M.2 slot. I do not expect this to be an issue.

    Gta 5? Cyberpunk?Legit max settings and very good fps. Handles raytracing like a champ.The fans are loud af tho, ngl. Get headphones, problem solved. Can cast bluetooth to tv for youtube watching or via hdmi cable for a great gaming experience (make sure to set your tv to gaming mode to avoid input lag).

    Had my doubts about the screen

    I had my doubts about the screen, the only real down fall. Though after I tasted how good and performant it was, all my worries transformed into excitement, each one of my games suddenly ran at over 100 fps, it was everything I really wanted, so I could get over this slightly dull looking display, specially for this price!

    I love the laptop. They sent me what I wanted including all details they mentioned. High performance for gaming and easy to code on its keyboard. Unfortunately, the monitor isn’t strong that much for such a system. But an external portable monitor will solve the problem. I don’t need a bigger screen. So, I am fine with it.

    I’m in love with this laptop

    I bought this laptop to upgrade my old Lenovo ideaPad Y700 with a GTX 960M. The MSI Katana 15 B13V is a great way to get an RTX 4070 laptop at a great price.Gaming is pretty good with it and I’m happy with the 1080p 144Hz screen. I upgraded the to 64GB RAM for video production and replaced the stock M.2 NVMe with a Kingston Fury and it doubled the speeds of data transfer.I’ll update my review if something relevant happens in the future, but some months with it and I’m in love!

    Mala compra

    The media could not be loaded.

    La compré en descuento y por sus prestaciones me parecía una compu decente para juegos medios como LoL o Age of Empires 4. Sin embargo tiene diversos errores y con AoE suele congelarse la pantalla. No es mala, pero básicamente resulta insuficiente justo para la razón que la compré: jugar. Debí irme por una Asus, nomás jaja 😡

    Full computer freezing

    My laptop started freezing during games, nothing too high performance either. It freezes to the point I have to force restart my computer, nothing else works. I googled around this issue and it is common with this laptop. I tried a few fixes I found online and nothing worked. I will be returning it. Outside of the freezing it’s well made and has good graphics etc, hence the 2 stars.

    Screen failed on the third day

    Wanted to love this as much as my previous Raider. The screen failed on the third day and I use this for work. They (MSI) wanted me to send it in for repair, and of course, this is one of those purchases where Amazon is just the shipper. I ended up getting a partial refund from Amazon, but now I have to buy another laptop and then replace the screen on this one when I get a chance.

    Great all rounder

    Love it! It been a great machine, not really much for complaints. Gets hot when playing high capacity games but runs really well. I think it could do with more fans, just a personal preference. Only thing that I have a complaint with is that occasionally it will have small technical issues, such as key board not working. But that could be oporator error. Not quite sure though…. Great laptop, love it. Would buy again!

    I want to rate it higher

    I want to give this a higher rating but the load times just seem to be getting worse by the day. Turn on the PC today, go get a drink so it has tons of time to load to Windows and absolutely nothing downloading or going on according to task manager, I simply try to open YouTube shortcut link on desktop. This PC literally takes 15 to 20 seconds to accomplish this simple task, it does this with everything such as opening steam or a game or any app it is simply crazy slow to the point you wonder if the double click worked. Does not feel like ssd drive speed it feels like I’m back to using a slow hard drive, hopefully support will get back to me soon as I can’t imagine this is working right. Once it does load though it runs great, handles everything lag free after the initial super long delay.

    Powerful enough, but the touchpad feels cheap

    It’s a great machine, for me (as animator) it works perfectly. For Gaming, at least with the games that I have (Fortnite, Street Fighter V, Battlefield 5 and so) it runs smoothly.The couple of things I don’t like about it are the plastic case material… It’s not bad quality, but it feels cheap, specially the screen case and the touchpad (I have a TUF DASH F15 2022 and the case is plastic too, but it feels “premium”). -Ah and the horrrible MSI Sticker breaks the aesthetic…-And the terrible sound quality… It’s similar to use a the speaker of a mid-range cellphone…Overall is a good machine… 🙂

    Great gaming laptop

    So far no complaints. Couple notes, it does get hot af, a cooling pad fixes that. The power supply block also gets super hot watch where it sits. I also have a cooling pad for it.

    4070 FTW!!

    So this laptop doesn’t look as fancy as it’s competitors but it performs well. I run this at 1440p @ 144 Hz and play WoW on it with my game settings dialed in at 7 and I hardly dip below 100 fps unless I’m in a raid or a major city. If you need to run 4k I would look into a 4080 laptop but this one runs just fine for me

    It’s a good laptop but…

    Honestly, this laptop is pretty good. I did upgrade the ram and added another m.2 drive (hardware not included…really?) If you contact support they will give you the hardware plus a thermal pad, make sure when you are putting the m.2 in that the thermal pads are on the top of the m.2 and not on the bottom. Then remove the protective film from the bottom chassis of the laptop.Some complaints I have, this may be a personal preference though. The charging port on the left side really doesn’t work for me. I feel that the charger is always laying on top of your feet or laptop. The charging port is also quite loose as well. The other thing is, is the FN keys are to the left why are you putting FN command key on the right? The volume control buttons could also be FN and the arow keys instead of it being F3. I use the volume control more often than fan control and a crosshair for FPS games.Other than that, it is a good laptop.Update: I have been using this laptop for some time now, and can get over some of the cons that I noticed when I first bought it. However, 1 thing that I will say is the charging port needs to be improved. The charger keeps popping out of the charging port, all the time. I know one reason is, that it is on the left side but it is EXTREMELY loose. I have never had a laptop with such a loose charging port and is a real inconvenience. Every time I have this laptop charging, the power cord constantly falls out of the port. Gets really annoying that most of the time I end up having to hold the plug into the port to keep it charging.

    Great Performance. Housing is very basic. MSI software is a bit janky.

    It was cheaper to buy this laptop than to upgrade my PC to the same specs. I don’t love the housing. It’s very simple slick shiny plastic with fake screws and a pretty cheap feel. My biggest complaint is MSI’s software. Sometimes it works.

    Great purchase if its on sale

    MSI Katana 15 B13V (13620H + 4070)I love this laptop. It is unfortunately Windows 11. The GPU I got is a 105-watt 4070 and it runs amazingly while it is plugged into the wall. The screen is 1080p 144hz, wish it was at least 1440p for a 4070 laptop. Battery life is great when you aren’t gaming on it. It lasts a few hours of browsing, watching, and doing work on it. The CPU is an i7 13620H and it’s quick! The 4070 and 13620H are such a good pair. The RGB on the laptop keyboard can be changed through MSI Center. Also, for a laptop, it has really good speakers and not too much bass, but it sounds very clear, even at max volume. If you wanna upgrade the RAM, the fastest and most space you can get is DDR5 2×32 gb at 5200 MHz. It comes with 16 GB at 5200 MHz. The GPU is a 4070 and integrated graphics on the CPU, it switches between the 2 depending on how intense the application is, but you can manually choose one in MSI Center. I got it from Open Box (Brand New) for $1400 after taxes. Totally a steal at $1400 INCLUDING TAX!

    An excellent gaming laptop

    Excellent, very pleased with the purchase, price and quality. It’s very fast and handles the games I play well. The graphics quality is exceptional compared to machines I’ve owned before. I’m very glad I made this purchase.

    Laptop is Definitely a W

    I had this for about a week now been playin non stop. I am a comp player so I am all about frames. I had a desktop before this got tired of not being able to be mobile with something so I switched over to laptop. This laptop by far beat my expectations. Max settings no problem on any game I’ve played. easily 150+-200fps no stutters/problems as well. I also play connected to a 360hz monitor for the majority of my gaming so the display means nothing to me really, but when I am on the go it still does not disappoint. Only thing I plan to do is upgrade ram and storage. Other than that I have zero complaints really

    Capable gaming laptop, decent battery life, room to upgrade

    If you are looking for a laptop to play the latest games at high fidelity and not wanting to spend a fortune look no further… When I travel, I use this laptop for both work and play… Battery life is decent… but bring the power brick with you if going to a meeting lasting more than a couple of hours… or doing any gaming… Wifi is much better than my previous laptop… get more bars further away… Screen is FHD, I prefer 2K but on a 15″ screen I can’t see the difference. I have hooked up to 2K monitors at home and it still produces decent frame rates.There is room to upgrade. Easy to replace memory with either 2 -16GB or 2 – 32GB SODIMM DDR5 memory sticks, and there is a slot for second NVMe SSD drive (though no mounting screw, so you have to work around that.Seems to cool fine even under load, but you will hear the fans… form factor is decent, but you can find better… just a question of dollars. So again, looking for high end gaming laptop for minimun dollars this is a good choice. I have had a number of MSI laptops over the years and they have performed well with little or no issues.

    Fast and beutiful clarity

    I was reluctant to spend so much for a laptop but as I use it, I’m glad I did. The black friday sale of 200$ enticed me. It’s very fast and handles the games I play well. The quality in the graphics is exceptional compared to machines I’ve owned before. I just hope this computer serves me well for years to come.

    Good performance overall, mediocre battery life

    Would recommend it for anyone planning on using it while plugged, the GPU and CPU combinations are quite solid for gaming, the keyboard feels great and its RGB can be customized via Mystic Lights in MSI Center (had to reinstall it for the feature to start working), the screen is somewhat okay when used in dark to slightly bright environments, an additional NVMe can be installed (though the laptop has a design flaw where there is no spot where to screw the second NVMe in place), but the most glaring issue in my opinion is the battery life, I was surprised to see that it couldn’t sustain a 2 hour long Netflix movie even when starting from a full charge.Overall, it’s still a decent product for the price.
