Performance, battery life of the MSI Modern 15 A11M-009FR
The MSI Modern 15 A11M-009FR may be of interest to those looking for a stylish compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday use on the go.
It is built around 8 GB of RAM and a low-power Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake processor. As a result, it delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, it should be kept in mind that to often perform heavy work in processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
In any case, although it does not include a dedicated graphics card, this thin and light laptop is capable of running games that are not too demanding in terms of graphics resources.
How? \’Or\’ What ? Thanks to the services of the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated within the Quad Core i7 Tiger Lake. As shown in our test dedicated to the Intel Iris Xe , it is significantly more efficient than the Intel UHD 620. Of course with the Iris Xe, you can also watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, MSI here chooses an SSD that rivals hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. Thus, for example, we obtain much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of software / games, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
As for autonomy, bet on about 8 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate transport.
