MSI just launched a slew of new laptops powered by Intel’s latest 13th gen processors, and one of the most powerful offerings by the Taiwanese company is the MSI Raider GE78HX. Sporting a fast Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU with an equally speedy Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, it’s a very capable gaming machine.

Only one variant of the Raider GE78HX is offered in Malaysia, which features the aforementioned RTX 4090 and Core i9-13980HX combo for a cool RM24,999. For that kind of money, you’re also getting a very generous 4TB PCIE 4.0 SSD and 64GB DDR5 5600MHz RAM.

Of course, the new Raider also features a display worthy of its gaming prowess. It comes with a 17-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS-level screen with a blazing fast 240Hz refresh rate. Paired with the beefy GPU and CPU, fast-paced games like Valorant and Apex Legends should be able to make full use of that refresh rate.

Another eye-catching feature of the Raider is the lightbar underneath the gaming laptop. Dubbed Mystic Light, the RGB lighting is (naturally) configurable. The SteelSeries-branded keyboard’s per-key RGB lighting is also customisable.

The MSI Raider GE78HX is now available for purchase in Malaysia. RM24,999 is certainly a hefty amount of money for the laptop, but if you want a serious gaming machine, the Raider fits the bill.
