MSI Creator 15 A10UET-220FR Specs and Review

The MSI Creator 15 A10UET-220FR is an elegant thin, light and discreet Ultrabook Pro oriented creation and game. Equipped with a 15 inch IPS Full HD touch screen, it benefits from a high-end graphics card NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing GeForce RTX 3060 to run recent games and speed up multimedia processing like the large amount of RAM and the Comet Lake-H Octo Core i7 processor. This player-oriented creative laptop also benefits from fast SSD storage with a comfortable capacity of 1TB which reinforces its responsiveness, a fingerprint reader, a backlit keyboard or even a Wi-Fi connection ax and USB-C Thunderbolt 3, all under Windows 10 Pro.

Chassis, connectors, screen of MSI Creator 15 A10UET-220FR

It has a discreet and elegant look with its thin and light carbon / anthracite aluminum case that can be opened at 180 ° completely flat and is intended to be robust by virtue of its compliance with the military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G.

Its cooling is entrusted to the Cooler Boost Trinity technology which relies on 3 fans (0.1mm blades), 7 heat pipes and vents.

This Ultrabook for playing and creating runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced security and network management tools (eg: BitLocker).

To authenticate on the system, you can go through the fingerprint reader via Windows Hello technology.

On the connection side, this thin and light creative and gaming laptop PC benefits from a good connection made up of 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 3, Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV and / or monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.

We can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is practical to discern them correctly in the dark.
But the keyboard does not accommodate a numeric keypad on the right unlike the standard 15-inch laptops, which will put off some.

With its 100% Adobe RGB and IPS specifications, the screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos. Due to its shiny treatment, it gives punch to colors but is sensitive to reflections in bright environments (eg outdoors).
The brilliant processing is due to the fact that the screen is touch-sensitive: you can therefore interact with the system and the software by simply placing at least one finger on it, and this by pressing / gesturing.
On the other hand, as this portable PC cannot be opened to 360 °, it cannot be transformed into a Tablet.

Performance, battery life of the MSI Creator 15 A10UET-220FR

The MSI Creator 15 A10UET-220FR targets those on a big budget who are looking for a versatile laptop that is relatively thin and light but also high-performance, creation and gaming oriented.

It stands out for the fact that it embeds the GeForce RTX 3060 , a dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card with ray tracing.

Under software using GPU computing power (eg Sony Vegas, Adobe Photoshop / Premiere), the GeForce RTX 3060 has the advantage of accelerating processing.

The GeForce RTX 3060 is also capable of supporting recent and greedy games, which will be of interest to gamers.

Onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology switches between the GeForce RTX 3060 Ampere and the integrated Intel UHD 630 solution in the processor, automatically depending on the tasks performed.

Despite its very modest performance, the Intel UHD 630 is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient and therefore implies better battery life.
In this area, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.

The GeForce RTX 3060 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the UHD 630. Obviously, these two graphics parts allow you to view photos and videos.

Both gamers and creators will be delighted to be dealing with a large capacity 1TB SSD that rivals hard drives.

As a reminder, SSD storage guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive. Thanks to it, for example, we take advantage of much faster processing as well as the starts / stops and launches of games / software, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games than if we were dealing with a simple hard drive.

Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, this thin and light Ultrabook for creators and gamers offers an empty M.2 slot to install a second SSD if necessary.

At the heart of this sleek and discreet laptop is a large amount of above-average 32 GB RAM as well as an Octo Core i7-10875H Comet Lake-H processor. The overall power supplied is able to appeal to demanding users.
Creatives will especially appreciate getting much faster processing than if they were dealing with 8/16 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor. The difference is strongly felt in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, for example in 3D rendering, photo editing or video editing.

Finally, this Ultrabook sees its transport facilitated by its controlled weight and its finesse. But this involves noise and heating when it is strongly pushed (eg: treatments, games).
