. My model has an 8 core Intel processor with Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics. But there are quite a few different configuration options. You can check updated prices in the description., Its got a matte carbon grey, exterior both on top bottom and for the interior.. The aluminum build feels pretty good, only minor keyboard and lid flex, when going out of my way to look for it and like the GS66. This has MSIs new and improved hinge. Ontwerp. De gewichtsverdeling voelde goed aan, allowing for one finger opening.. The screen goes, de volledige 180 degrees back and the F12 key has a shortcut for flipping. The screen for sharing. MSI lists the weight as 2.1kg or 4.6lb, though mine was heavier than this., Were looking at 2.8kg or about 6.2lb with the 180 watt power brick and cables included. Its not too big for a 15 laptop and is under 2cm thick making it Fairly portable. Mijn eenheid heeft een 15.6 1080p 60Hz-touchscreen, though there is also a 4K option with higher colour gamut and both of these arent options with the GS66 gaming laptop, wat logisch is. Given these are more creator orientated features. Ive testte het scherm met de Spyder 5 en kreeg 97 van sRGB 70 van NTSC 75 van AdobeRGB en 76 van DCI P3, so fair for content creation, but theres the 4K option with 100 AdobeRGB. If you need better., My panel got bright enough at around 364 nits at max brightness, hoewel de 8001 contrastverhouding, wasnt impressive.

, I had no problems with backlight bleed, though this will vary between laptops.. The touchscreen worked alright. Voor mij, Hoewel, this means its got a glossy finish, so fingerprints will show up. Theres a 720p camera above the display and its got IR for Windows, Hello support which worked well.. This is what the camera and microphone look and sound like on the Creator. 15. Heres. What it sounds like to type on the keyboardand this is what it sounds like if we set the fan to full speed its pretty loud, maar je me nog steeds horen.. Ok over the fans., The keyboard has a single zone of white backlighting, die alle toetsen en secundaire sleutelfuncties verlicht.. Er zijn 3 levels of key brightness or you can turn it off with the F8 key.. The precision touchpad is extra wide and works. Goed, Hoewel, my right hand would press down on it while typing, but the palm rejection was good and this never caused any problems. It just felt strange. Its got 1.5mm of key travel and was ok for typing heres. How it sounds to give you an idea of what to expect. Theres, also a fingerprint scanner in the top left corner of the touchpad. It worked alright, but wasnt as fast as some others Ive used.. The power button is part of the keyboard, but by default pressing, it doesnt put it to sleep unless you hold it down, and there are some air vents above the keyboard.

. There are two 2w front facing speakers on either sides down the front. They sound alright with some bass but werent too clear at higher volumes. They sounded loud maxed out as theyre facing you and the latencymon results. Zag er goed uit. Fingerprints and dirt dont show up too easily and the smooth finish is easy to clean with a microfiber cloth.. The left has an air exhaust vent, de stroomtoevoer, USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C, Thunderbolt 3 port with DisplayPort output, and it can also be used to charge the device HDMI 2.0 uitgang en USB 3.2 Gen2-type. A port.. The right has a 3.5mm audio combo jack. Another USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C-poort, no thunderbolt, display output or charging on this side, though followed by UHS III SD card slot, something the GS66 gamer model is missing and a gigabit ethernet port facing the preferred way easy to remove. Without lifting the machine, Hoewel, the location might get in the way of right handed mouse users., Both the HDMI and Type C ports on the left, connect directly to the Nvidia graphics, het omzeilen van optimus.. De achterkant heeft luchtuitlaatopeningen naar de hoeken. Terwijl de voorkant schoon is. With glossy plastic trim. Underneath has air ventilation holes on the back, half. Binnen komen gaat gepaard met het nemen van 9 phillips head screws and the one down the front in the middle is shorter than the rest.. Once inside weve got the large battery down the front two M.2 storage slots above it both do NVMe PCIe, while only one also does SATA WiFi 6 card to the left of those and two memory slots near the center towards the right.

. Its worth noting that MSI are using slower, DDR4 2666 geheugen hier, despite Intel 10th gen supporting faster.. The Creator 15 wordt aangedreven door een 4 Batterij van cel 99,9Wh. Ive getest met toetsenbord verlichting uit achtergrond apps, uitgeschakeld en scherm op 50 Helderheid.. It lasted for more than 10 uren in de YouTube-afspeeltest, an amazing result considering the specs inside and it lasted for just under 2 and a half hours in the gaming test, a new record out of the machines Ive tested.. You can also set the charge threshold in software, Hoewel, even with this set to 100 after hours of running stress tests, mine did dip down to 87 kosten. Laten we check out thermiek volgende. The MSI Creator Center software lets. You pick between three main performance modes which, van laag naar hoog, zijn stil, balanced and high performance.. None of these apply any GPU overclock. They just modify power limits and fan speed. High performance mode also lets you set the fan to advanced, which gives you some customization or coolerboost, which sets the fan to full speed. Undervolting is disabled by default, but if you boot into the BIOS and press MSIs, Epische, Cheat code to access the advanced BIOS you can enable it under the overclocking performance menu., The temps are fine at idle with a 21 degree celsius. Ambient room temperature., The rest of the results are worst case. Stress tests with Aida64 and only stress, cpu only checked and the Heaven GPU benchmark run at the same time.

. There was some thermal throttling present on the CPU in high performance mode, enabling cooler boost didnt, remove the throttle, but the GPU lowered by 10 Graden, then adding a cooling pad was able to remove the throttle and undervolting the processor further assisted.. These are the clock speeds during the same tests.. The GPU speeds in green were very low in silent mode, so probably not useful for gaming or doing graphically intensive tasks, then they improve as cooling improves.. Cpu speeds also improve as we step up through the different modes.. Although coolerboost previously made no difference to the CPU temperature were seeing a decent clock, speed increase as the faster fan speeds, make us throttle less. With the cooling pad and undervolt its possible to maintain the full 4.3GHz. All core turbo boost speed of the 10875H.. De 2060 seems to be capped to 35 watts in silent mode, which is why the performance is so bad. Anders, in any of the other modes, it had no problem running to the full 80 watt limit.. The CPU power limit is also looking good better than others. That are capped to the intel spec of 45 watts anyway. Heres. Hoe CPU alleen prestaties eruit ziet in Cinebench met de GPU nu idle, so it is possible to get a reasonable improvement by making some simple tweaks with the result at the top, where Ive raised the power limit and undervolted with Intel XTU. Its stacking up fairly well compared To others, with the tweaks in place well for an Intel option anyway, far ahead of the Blade 15 Advanced with the same processor as its capped to a low power limit, but also not as good as cheaper Ryzen based options.

. When idling the keyboard is below the 30 Graden, or so I usually so so quite cool.. It gets to the mid 40s. With the CPU plus GPU stress tests running then balanced mode is in the low 50s as its now performing better. High performance mode was around the same. Getting to the mid 50s in the middle, vervolgens, with the fans maxed out in cooler boost mode, its around 5 Graden, cooler worst case, but lets have a listen to the fan. Noise.. The fans were still audible when idling in silent mode, which helps explain the cool temps noted earlier., With the stress tests its still on the quieter side, Hoewel, als u zich, the GPU is capped to 35 watt hier, so GPU heavy tasks wont run well. High performance Mode with the fans on auto mode was similar to balanced mode and is quieter compared to most gaming laptops tested, then coolerboost is way louder.. I look at this as a good thing, Hoewel, as we saw higher fan speeds boost performance by lowering thermal throttling under heavy workloads and, as there is user customizable fan, control youve at least got the option of tuning it. How you like to get a mixture of noise and performance. Lets check out some content creator workloads. You know the thing this machine is actually made. Voor. Ive gebruikt Adobe Premiere om een van mijn laptop review exporteren. Videos at 4K. In deze test. A lower time is better and the Creator 15 was the fastest out of the 2060 laptops, though it does have that 8 core Intel processor and that offers an advantage of quicksync here.

Ive ook getest Premiere, maar met de Puget-systeembenchmark. In these tests a higher Score is better the ASUS G14, with Max Q version of the 2060 and Ryzen processor was ahead and a few other Ryzen based machines were scoring higher here. In Adobe Photoshop, though the Creator 15 was one of the best scoring laptops tested close to the top of The stack. This one seems to favour CPU power and, zoals we eerder zagen, de 8 core processor has a fair power. Beperken. DaVinci Resolve is more GPU heavy than the last test and the score puts it around many of the other 80 watt GPU options, but it still gets beaten by lower 1660 Ti plus Ryzen options. Ive testte ook SPECviewperf, die verschillende professionele 3D-workloads test. Ive Used Crystal disk mark to test storage and the 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD was doing great for both read and writes.. The SD card slot was also doing well, basically maxing out my v90 rated card and the card clicks in and sits most of the way into the machine., Although not a gaming laptop with these specs, its definitely capable of playing games well, so lets see how it Stacks up. Ive geteste Battlefield 5 in campaign mode at ultra settings and the Creator 15 is highlighted in red. Its not that far behind higher wattage 2060 laptops like the RP 15, but only slightly ahead of most of the 1660 Ti laptops that have the same 80 Watt power limit.

: Dit zijn de resultaten van Far Cry 5 met ultra-instellingen in de ingebouwde benchmark.. This tends to be more of a CPU heavier test, which probably explains why the result is more inline with other 8 core processors, despite in many cases those having higher GPU power. Grenzen. Shadow of the Tomb Raider werd ook getest met de games benchmark tool met de hoogste instelling preset., As were back to being GPU dependent. The Creator 15 drops down a couple of positions and the higher wattage 2060s are ahead as expected, not counting the older, 8th, gen Triton 500 result. Heres. What were looking at in terms of 3DMark benchmark results. Voor bijgewerkte prijzen, check the links in the description as prices will change over time. Op het moment van opnemen in de VS, its available for around 1800 USD for the same specs Ive tested here.. Ondertussen, here in Australia were looking at 4000 AUD for the configuration Ive tested, but there are both lower and higher spec options for less or more money.. Lets summarise to help you decide if the Creator 15 is het overwegen waard.. The build quality is pretty good and similar to MSIs GS66, but with some extras for creators, including full size, SD card slot and touch screen.. Het scherm was fatsoenlijk, but the optional 4K panel offers better colour gamut. Should you need it.? The performance was good, especially in content creator workloads due to the high CPU power limit, though the trade off of that is always going to be higher temperatures.

Echter, zoals getoond, it was possible to lower temperatures by increasing fans undervolting or using a cooling pad to get even better performance.. De levensduur van de batterij was geweldig, one of the best laptops Ive ever tested in that regard. Despite the good specs., The IO is decent theres Thunderbolt and the advanced BIOS gives us lots of control.. The only things I didnt personally, like was typing, sometimes felt a bit strange when your right hand presses the touchpad down it wasnt an issue in a practical sense. It just felt a bit weird to me with my larger hands.. The memory is DDR4 2666, so upgrading that could result in a little speed boost, and it would have been good for MSI to offer that out of the box for a premium machine like this. Other than that with the 4K panel. The Creator 15 looks like a good option for content creators and is a machine I wouldnt mind using myself..
