Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Prestige 15 A12UC-025FR

Rugged with its compliance with the MIL-STD-810G military resistance standard, this thin and light laptop with a Carbon Gray design sports a sober and elegant look.

This versatile multimedia Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity with its 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (against 1 maximum usually), its wireless modules Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ax) to communicate and connect remotely, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its audio port or its USB 3.2 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.

It is possible to authenticate biometrically by 2 means via Windows Hello technology: the fingerprint reader and the Infrared webcam allowing facial recognition.

The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit which is very convenient so that you can better discern your keys in the dim light.
On the other hand, we note the absence of a numeric keypad while this feature is standard from 15 inches to facilitate the entry of numbers, which some will not fail to regret.

The screen displays more faithful colors than average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its sRGB and IPS characteristics. In addition, it is well suited to videos and more broadly to High Definition content thanks to its 16/9th format and its Full HD definition. Treated anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.

Performance, autonomy of the MSI Prestige 15 A12UC-025FR

The MSI Prestige 15 A12UC-025FR may be of interest to those looking for a slim and light discreet laptop that performs versatilely and multimedia-oriented to create and play.

It is built around an Intel Alder Lake-H Core i7-1280P processor with 14 hybrid cores coupled with 16 GB of RAM to provide solid overall performance able to satisfy a maximum of users.
Creators will particularly appreciate the Alder Lake’s 14 hybrid cores as they are fully leveraged in areas that leverage multi-core, such as photo editing, video editing, or 3D rendering.

And all the more so since multimedia processing is accelerated by the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card embedded, and this under software exploiting GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

In practice, the GeForce RTX 3050 is used automatically and in real time, and this by NVIDIA Optimus technology according to the tasks performed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated into the Alder Lake-P Core i7 despite its more modest performance because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy.
In this area, expect about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.

The GeForce RTX 3050 is actually enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing too heavy for the Iris Xe, both of which of course allow you to watch photos and videos.
Thanks to the GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere, it should be noted that players can indulge in many titles if they agree to settings under opus demanding graphics resources to get a good gameplay.

On the storage side, there is a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity similar to what the vast majority of hard drives in this field offer, which is appreciable.

In addition, an SSD offers several advantages compared to a hard drive: greater shock resistance, quiet operation, lower power consumption but also greater velocity.

The SSD actually ensures a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, multimedia processing is much faster, for example, as are game/software launches and starts/stops, and you can get to the cards of online games faster.

Finally, expect that in case of high demands (eg processing, games), this versatile multimedia Ultrabook designed to create and play is heard and heats up due in particular to the embedded graphics card but also the finesse which, with the lightness, has the advantage of facilitating the transport of this PC.
