Creator-oriented ultrabook gamer, the elegant MSI Stealth 15M A11UEK-049FR with 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity takes advantage of a backlit keyboard and Wi-Fi ax and USB-C Thunderbolt connectivity 4. This thin and light laptop PC is capable of running recent games thanks to its high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card with ray tracing which also speeds up processing such as the right amount of 16 GB RAM. and fast 1TB SSD storage for increased responsiveness. This elegant computer is also powerful thanks to its Tiger Lake-H Quad Core i7 processor.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Stealth 15M A11UEK-049FR
Robust with its compliance with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, this Silver Ultrabook has a sober and elegant design with its Carbon Gray anthracite Carbon Gray case.
It is cooled by Cooler Boost 5 technology using for this purpose 2 fans with fine blades (0.1mm), 6 heat pipes and air vents.
This creator-oriented ultrabook gamer is equipped with a good connection consisting of 2 USB-C including 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when plugging in USB 3.0 peripherals.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard has a backlighting system for the keys to discern them correctly in the dark, here of the RGB type per key.
However on the right we note the absence of a numeric keypad while it is a standard in 15 inches, which will regret those who are used to entering numbers regularly.
In any case, the screen will be of interest to players because it improves fluidity in games thanks to its refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the 60Hz standard. The screen also has significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. In addition, it lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the MSI Stealth 15M A11UEK-049FR
The MSI Stealth 15M A11UEK-049FR may be of interest to those looking for a sleek and portable High Definition thin and light laptop PC that performs in games and is creative oriented.
It is able to run recent games because it embeds the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition .
The on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches between the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q and the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated into the processor (more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 630), and this automatically according to the tasks performed.
Despite its much more modest benefits, the Intel Iris Xe is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient which promotes battery life.
In this area, expect around 8 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe. With either of these graphics solutions, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q will also be of interest to creatives since it speeds up processing in applications using GPU computing power, for example in Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
At the heart of this creator-oriented ultrabook gamer takes place a good amount of 16 GB RAM very significant in multitasking associated with an Intel Tiger Lake-H processor , the Quad Core i7-11375H.
This duo supports the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q well in games and in fact delivers strong overall performance that can satisfy a maximum number of users.
In particular, it guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a low-power Quad Core processor, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
The storage is up to the task, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that easily rivals hard drives.
In addition compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
On a daily basis, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage for example of a faster arrival on the cards of online games or even faster games / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
Finally, due to the power of the processor and the graphics card, expect this Ultrabook, which is easy to carry thanks to its finesse and lightness, to be heard and to heat up in the event of heavy stress (eg games, processing).
