The MSI GS75 Stealth (9SF) is an Intel architecture American Megatrends Inc. notebook with an Intel i7-9750H CPU and an NVIDIA Turing 20XX Q GPU.

  • HDMI ports are directly wired to the dedicated GPU, Thunderbolt Type-C is not.
  • The Intel integrated GPU (iGPU) is directly wired to the notebooks screen (EDP-1).
  • The NVIDIA GPU (dGPU) is directly wired to the external HDMI port.
  • Thunderbolt is wired to its own controller, but is somehow attached to the power state of the NVIDIA GPU.
  • Thunderbolt firmware can be updated via BIOS, but the process is dangerous and can brick the machine.
  • Native Microphone comprises two mono microphones that need to be managed for stereo-input and noise reduction.


It is best to to enable factory default settings in the UEFI before installing. This will disable Secure Boot and provide sane settings for the CPU/GPU/PCH/EC. Resetting is not required, but this suggestion exists due to the complexity of advanced options and the configuration of PCIe on this model.


  • Enter UEFI configuration: Del
  • Select BOOT Device: F11

The default UEFI menu does not expose all possible options, to do so you must enable the "Advanced BIOS" feature:

  • Enter "Advanced BIOS": LAlt+F2+RShift+RCtrl


MSI provides firmware binaries for both the UEFI and Embedded Controller (EC). These files can be found at .

System firmware (EC) can be update via fwupd, but the UEFI cannot.



Keyboard brightness works out of the box with Fn+NumPadMinus/Plus.

The lights on the keyboard cannot be configured with msi-keyboard-gitAUR, because this tool only works with region-based RGB lighting. For this laptop model, the tool msi-perkeyrgbAUR provides partial control.

Function keys

The airplane mode key combination (Fn+F10) is disabled by default. Adding the following kernel parameters activates airplane mode key combination:

acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2009"


Multi gestures do not work out the box, but are detected with libinput-gesturesAUR.


Control the fans with iswAUR. It will only work after enabling ec_sys write-support by adding the following to your kernel command line:



This notebook has a microphone array which provides stereo input. Noise reduction, echo cancellation, noise suppression can all be done via beamforming. To get the best of it add:

load-module module-echo-cancel use_master_format=1 aec_method=webrtc aec_args="beamforming=1 mic_geometry=-0.025,0,0,0.025,0,0"
set-default-source alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1f.3.analog-stereo.echo-cancel
