MSI Claw Price Release Date

The MSI Claw Has Been Officially Revealed With A New Intel Chipset

Another one!

After it was teased late last week, MSI has now revealed the MSI Claw. There will be three models ranging from $699 USD ($~1,047 AUD) to $799 USD ($1,200 AUD), so roughly $100-200 more than the ASUS ROG Ally seems likely.

As predicted, it’s the first to be powered by the Intel Core Ultra Processor with the new Intel Core Ultra 7 processor 155H. ARC graphics up to 8 Xe cores and advanced XeSS technology. It’s said to delivery twice the graphical performance of the previous generation and offer smooth gameplay across a range of titles at 1080p in medium.

As far as storage and memory go, it has 1 NVME SSD Slot as well as 16GB of DDR5 memory onboard as well. It comes with a Thunderbolt 4 port, a MicroSD reader and a power button with a finger print sensor.

The MSI Claw features a 7-inch 1080p 120hz touchscreen display, and it has a 53Whr battery which is said to delivery a two hour battery life with a full workload. It will also incorporate MSI Cooler Boost technology with dual fans and heat pipes to dissipate heat.

The device will come with MSI Center M UI which has quick settings, a game launcher and instant platform access and will support the MSI App player to play both Windows and Android games.

MSI Claw VS ASUS ROG Ally

The biggest different between the MSI Claw and the ASUS ROG Ally seems to be the ergonomics which is fitting given the name of the MSI Claw. It has a lot more curvier grips which should make it easier to hold. You can see it very well in Dave2D’s first hands-on video HERE.

The MSI Claw is set to launch in the coming months and we’ll let you know when we have an Australian price and release date.
