Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Creator 15 A10SDT-067FR
MSI rethinks its Creator range, until then represented in 15 inches by the MSI P65, and imagines the MSI Creator 15 A10SDT-067FR, a laptop PC which cultivates an elegant and light design but which is above all at the service of performance. In this sense, MSI significantly modifies the case of its 15 inches which receives measurements a little more imposing than its predecessor with 19.8 mm thickness.against 18 mm on the P65. However, it remains in the clan of ultrabooks even if its weight now stands at 2.1 kg. It retains its sober and elegant design with a matte and smooth gray tone without any finishing detail. The case is quite geometric and composed of a single piece of metal (unibody) that meets the MIL-STD 810G standard, which means that it has passed different tests that have proven its robustness and durability.
In this more versatile vision, MSI ignores the brand\’s typical technologies such as the SteelSeries keyboard, preferring a more classic input device, with silver keys (short stroke) backlit in white . Fortunately, it still integrates the three modes of use accessible with the Shift function (Sport, Comfort or Green) so that the performances follow your use as well as the MatrixDisplay system which allows the display to be extended to two external screens, not to mention the optimized Cooler Boost Trinity cooling systemwhich combines 3 fans and 7 dedicated heat pipes. MSI also sought to work the sound of its Creator 15 A10SET-211FR with the well-known Nahimic surround processing but also the addition of two exclusive Duo Wave speakers with passive dissipator on each side of the base.
From a connection point of view, the requirements of the creative world are met with a full panel of interfaces. There is an HDMI 2.0 output and three USB ports including one USB 3.2 Type-A (standard) and two USB 3.2 Type-C Gen2 , one of which supports Thunderbolt 3 . You also benefit from a fast UHS-III SD card reader and a headphone jack and for connectivity, the latest generation of WiFi 802.11 AX and Bluetooth 5.1 chips with the support of an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, increasingly rare on this format. Windows Hello authentication is served by both the fingerprint reader and the Infrared webcam .
Image professionals will be excited about the True Pixel multitouch touchscreen that fully covers the AdobeRGB profile with accurate colors and CalMAN certification, valuable features for creative work, design and editing of photos and videos. Surrounded by thin borders, the display inherits a classic Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) allowing you to take full advantage of the High Definition content but limited in details compared to 4K. On the other hand, the contribution of touch is invaluable on a daily basis to enrich the interaction with the system.
Performance, battery life of MSI Creator 15 A10SDT-067FR
Now let\’s judge the performance of the Creator 15 A10SDT-067FR. Based on the 10th generation Core i7-10750H Hexa Core Comet Lake processor, the ultimate versatility CPU, the ultrabook benefits from a complete management of the so-called creative use consisting of video editing, 3D animation, programming or parallelization, with complex calculations. The 16 GB RAM in front is comfortable and offers the necessary flexibility in multitasking, enough to ensure the next few years.
If its design does not show anything, the Creator takes on scale with the discovery of its graphics card entrusted to the NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (2019) which places the PC on a high-end level. If the latter only supports Ray-Tracing in small proportions unlike its big sister RTX 2060, the GTX 1660 Ti follows the latter in most performance scenarios. In fact, it is particularly able to compete with intensive players and ensure optimal frequencies in 1080p High on all AAA games with a total FPS that exceeds 60. Creatives are also on the front lines to take advantage of this powerful card which can speed up processing in compatible applications.
Next, MSI equipped its Creator 15 with the largest battery that can be fitted to a laptop PC today: 99.9 Whr. With a battery of such a capacity, the manufacturer announces up to 10 hours of autonomy in Internet browsing via Wifi, a total which is not unreasonable provided that the brightness and tasks in the background are limited.
Storage is entrusted to a 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD , a solution now standard on a laptop PC that will significantly enhance the overall responsiveness of the system on a daily basis. Overall quieter, more robust and more energy efficient than a mechanical disk, it allows Windows to achieve a remarkable level of fluidity with short load times and a performance without latencies. What\’s more, its capacity is nothing short of ridiculous and can accommodate a good chunk of your game library, although some may not find it sufficient. In this case, a second M.2 port is free inside.
