83.7% MSI Creator Z16P laptop in review: Creative work with an i9 and the RTX 3080 Ti | Notebookcheck
MSI has opted for high-end components. The CPU and graphics card are in the same league as the best gaming laptops. The excellent display as well as a remarkably slim case, on the other hand, show its multimedia nature. The combination is bound to lead to conflicts, but it promises creative peak performance.

70% MSI Creator Z16P review: Creators yes, gamers no
Source: Digital Trends English
The MSI Creator Z16P is one of the faster Windows machines you can buy for creative work, and its display is good enough for all but the most demanding creators. It’s also a very expensive laptop, meaning it’s an investment best made by those who need the utmost in performance and don’t want to switch to MacOS. Gamers should definitely look elsewhere, though, because the Creator Z16P severely underperformed in this area. I’m not sure if it was a driver or hardware problem, but the laptop simply didn’t live up to its potential.
