Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Stealth 15M B12UE-002FR

It sports a gamer design with its black color and angular lines, its finesse and lightness facilitating its transport and a hint of color being present on the hull.

This creator-oriented gaming laptop is cooled by Cooler Boost 5 technology via 2 fans (0.2mm blades), 4 heat pipes and air outlets.

Its connectivity is good, composed of 2 USB-C (but not Thunderbolt, too bad), wireless modules Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6 ax (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more quickly than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.

We can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is convenient to better discern them in the dim light. SteelSeries lent a hand in designing it to be adapted to the habits of the players.
Numeric keypad point however while this feature is standard from 15 inches, which may regret those who regularly enter numbers.

Players will appreciate that the screen is adorned with a frequency of 144Hz because it reinforces the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. In addition, it is suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16/9th format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.

Performance, autonomy of the MSI Stealth 15M B12UE-002FR

The MSI Stealth 15M B12UE-002FR may be of interest to those looking for a versatile slim and light 15-inch performance laptop focused on gaming and creation.

It relies on a 14-core Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1280P hybrid processor paired with 16GB of RAM to deliver overall power that can appeal to demanding users.

This core will be of particular interest to creators because it guarantees much faster processing than a classic Quad/Hexa/Octo Core and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in CPU and RAM intensive areas taking advantage of multi-core, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.

In addition, the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 embedded graphics card accelerates processing under software exploiting GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which will also interest creatives.

However, the GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere targets gamers first and foremost, as it is able to run recent games.

In fact, the GeForce RTX 3060 is automatically enabled/disabled in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus prefers the Iris Xe, a graphics solution housed in the Core i7 Alder Lake-P that allows you to watch photos and videos but also to run modest games. Despite the fact that it is less powerful than the GeForce RTX 3060, the Iris Xe is preferred to the maximum by Optimus because its reduced power consumption promotes autonomy.

In this regard, while waiting for more complete tests, count on about 6 hours of operation on battery in light use. In addition, this multimedia Ultrabook is easy to carry thanks to its finesse and lightness, but it involves heating and noise when this versatile laptop is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments).

Still, the GeForce RTX 3060 is activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe.

The storage is in any case up to the task, entrusted to a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that rivals what hard drives offer in this area.
In addition to compared to a hard drive, an SSD is quiet, more energy efficient, more shock-resistant and much faster.

In practice, the SSD ensures a much better fluidity and responsiveness to use than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, we reach the maps of online games faster for example and we get much faster game/software launches, processing and starts/stops.
