MSI Pulse GL76 11UEK-053ES is one of the brand’s largest notebooks

As stated above, the computer comes with an Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics card with 6 GB GDDR6 dedicated. This means a general fluidity when it comes to running the latest AAA games in the industry as well as an assurance that you will be ready for the next few years of releases. Of course, its performance is oriented to a Full HD configuration instead of 4K as in the following models in the Nvidia catalog.

Unlike previous generations, new Ampere architecture offers performance optimization in games and features advanced second-generation ray tracing cores which simulates the physical compartment of light in real time and third generation “Tensor Cores” with superior performance.

On the one hand, Nvidia Reflex offers maximum competitive advantage from reduced latency levels and better responsiveness which may be the key to gaining victory in competitive games, while the popular Nvidia DLSS technology increases frame rates with image quality that is not appreciated at a glance through an AI processing system.

Summary of General Specifications
