Today, a new class of gamers want a new type of PC. Intel’s research reveals that nearly 40% of gamers want thinner, more versatile gaming laptops that are also great all-around PCs for work, school, content creation and personal activities.

Intel and its ecosystem partners have created an entirely new category of PC: the ultraportable gaming laptop. As Intel announced at CES 2021, original equipment manufacturers such as MSI, Acer and ASUS are releasing more than 40 ultraportable gaming designs in the first half of 2021, including the MSI Stealth15M — one of thinnest 15-inch gaming laptops ever designed.

The laptops are powered by the new 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H35-series processor, delivering the fastest single-threaded performance of any laptop processor.1 This processor includes critical features normally found only in high-end desktop systems: up to 5 gigahertz frequency, PCIe Gen 4.0 architecture for the fastest storage and support for the latest discrete graphics, and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+). These features provide a balance of mobility and advanced gaming — an industry first and a technical milestone in response to people’s real-world needs.
