Computex 2023 was a veritable wonderland of tech with every major laptop vendor showcasing their latest laptops. At the MSI booth, the brand revealed a unique gaming laptop that is the fruit of a special collaboration with Mercedes-AMG, the car maker’s racing arm dubbed the MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG.
Combining MSI’s and Mercedes-AMG’s passion for speed and engineering prowess into a slick chassis bedecked with the signature livery of the latter over a Selenite Gray finish along with the distinctive AMG Rhombus on the top lid, bottom display bezel and back cover, the MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG is as powerful as it is sleek.
In keeping with its special origins, the laptop even has its power button relabelled with ‘Start Engine’ to mimic that of a race car. To ensure maximum weight savings, the chassis is hewn from magnesium-alloy that weighs just 1.8kg while being just 19.8mm thick which is exceptional for a gaming rig.
In keeping with its unique heritage, the MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG laptop also comes in an exclusive package that integrates a themed mouse, mouse pad, USB drive, pouch, postcards and cable ties too, all of which come with the MSI and Mercedes AMG logos.
MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG Specs and Price
In terms of hardware, the MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG features a large and luscious 16-inch 4K (3,840 x 2,400 pixels) OLED display with a tall 16:10 aspect ratio and an exceptional 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut for faithful colour reproduction.
Oddly enough, there’s no official mention of the OLED display’s refresh rate at launch. Accompanying the display is a six-speaker system tuned by Dynaudio which consists of two 2W speakers and a quartet of 2W woofers spaced around its chassis to kick out some serious sound.
On top of a luscious display and a slim chassis, the laptop itself is armed for bear with impressive hardware. You get a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 laptop GPU with 8GB GDDR6 vRAM and up to 105W maximum graphics power if you kick in its Dynamic Boost feature. It also features up to 64GB DDR5 RAM via two SODIMM slots as well as two M.2 SSD slots.
Connectivity on the MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes AMG is exceptional with fast WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 while I/O is equally comprehensive with a HDMI 2.1 port, an Ethernet port, a microSD card reader, a Type-A port and a pair of USB Type-C ports, one of which comes with Thunderbolt 4 and power delivery charging.
There’s no official word on pricing for this behemoth of a gaming rig nor how many that MSI aim to make but it’s safe to say that it won’t cost as much as a race car. Deployment times in Malaysia and the rest of the world aren’t confirmed yet but it’ll most likely appear near the second half of 2023.
