AI-powered DLSS 3 boosts creative applications and games, and comprehensive ray tracing creates realistic virtual worlds.

Ray following the hyperrealists: VERY FAST

Ray tracing, which emulates the behavior of light in the actual world, is fully unleashed by the Ada architecture. You can enjoy stunningly detailed virtual worlds like never before thanks to the strength of the RTX 40 Series and third-generation RT Cores.

Enhanced Power and Efficiency

An powerful collection of AI-powered technologies called NVIDIA Max-Q improves the efficiency of your system. This makes it possible to create tiny, silent, very speedy computers with long battery lives.


For more effective cooling, the innovative cooling design with its six exhausts enables multidirectional airflow output. You can be guaranteed to obtain the best performance possible when playing hardcore games thanks to features like bigger thermal pipe diameter, MSI-exclusive thermal grease, and shared-pipe design with five heat pipes between the CPU and GPU.
