Chassis, Connectivity, Screen MSI P65 9SF-1040FR Creator
It sports a sleek design with its brushed metal silver finish aluminum chassis, robust with its compliance with the US MIL-STD-810G military resistance standard.
Cooler Boost Trinity technology takes care of its cooling. It combines 3 Whirlwind Blade fans (light 0.2mm) with 6 heat pipes and ventilation grids on both the sides and the back.
On this Ultrabook gamer, one can identify in a simple and fast way thanks to the biometric reader compatible Windows Hello integrated.
One can also obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to correctly discern them in the dim light.
This powerful Ultrabook boasts good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect wirelessly remotely, a convenient HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports or 3 USB 3.0 / .2 (USB 3.0 / 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if one plugs above USB 3.0 devices.
The screen will seduce the players and creative with its 100% sRGB and IPS features because it displays more accurate colors than average and comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Full HD, the screen is accurate and adapted to High Definition content as videos by its format 16 / 9th. Anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy slab environment.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI P65 9SF-1040FR Creator
The MSI P65 9SF-1040FR Creator targets those who have a substantial budget and wish to acquire a powerful versatile 15-inch laptop oriented creative and gamers.
Thanks to its high-end dedicated GeForce RTX 2070 NVIDIA Turing ray tracing board, here in Max-Q edition , it is indeed able to run at a good level of detail the user\’s favorite games.
Depending on the tasks performed, embedded NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 2070 and the Intel UHD 630 integrated into the processor.
Optimus requests maximum the Intel UHD 630 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2070 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphic processing considered too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. These two solutions allow of course to look at photos and videos.
Essential parameter in games, responsiveness is present at the heart of this thin and light computer thanks to SSD storage. It competes with hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 1 TB capacity while being much faster, more robust, more energy efficient and quiet.
In particular, creatives will be delighted to obtain much faster processing than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, especially in the demanding work in RAM and CPU resources exploiting multicore architecture (eg photo editing, video editing, 3D rendering).
In games however, keep in mind that the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
Lastly, in terms of autonomy, plan about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this gamer-oriented and creative Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and the compact dimensions.
But it is in return at the expense of temperatures and noise that climb when the PC is heavily loaded CPU / GPU resources (eg games), although it should remain correct for this type of machine (powerful and compact).
