MSI CreatorPro Z16P laptop review - Mobile workstation with temperature problems

Nvidia Studio instead of GeForce. With the CreatorPro Z16P, MSI specifically targets customers who need professional graphics cards together with their drivers. Like the regular Creator Z16P with a GeForce GPU, the 16-inch device offers fast components but also has to struggle with some temperature problems.

We already tested the Creator Z16P from MSI extensively, which is a slim 16-inch laptop for content creators. However, the manufacturer also offers the device with professional GPUs from Nvidia using the name "CreatorPro Z16P," which we examine today. We are testing the configuration labeled "B12UKST-078" for 3,499 Euros (~$3,620), which combines an Intel Core i7-12700H with the Nvidia RTX A3000. In addition, there are 32 GB of RAM and a large, 1-TB SSD as well as a 16-inch IPS display with a WQHD resolution and 165-Hz refresh rate. In this test, we mainly concentrate on the performance. You can find detailed information on the case, equipment, input devices, and speakers in our test of the Creator Z16P:

Case, Equipment, and Input Devices

The case of the CreatorPro Z16P doesn't differ from that of the regular Creator Z16P, which of course also includes the connections and input devices. You shouldn't run into any problems with the dark-gray (Lunar Gray) case even in the office, as long as you restrain yourself with the keyboard illumination, where the color can be individually configured for each key. The keyboard itself offers a very comfortable typing experience and benefits from a long key stroke. In this regard, the CreatorPro can even keep up with good business laptops. The ClickPad also works without any problems.

In terms of the connections, you get a total of three USB ports, with one of them including Thunderbolt 4, and a full-size SD card reader. On the other hand, you have to make do without a dedicated graphics output. Due to the cooling, all the connections except for the power port are in the front areas of both sides, which is less than optimal in everyday operation.

Display - TrueColor with 165 Hz

We can also be brief in the Display section, since there are also no differences to the regular Creator Z16P here. Although the design of the reflective TrueColor WQHD panel (2560 x 1600 pixels, IPS) in the 16:10 format is targeted more towards a content creator audience, the subjective image quality is simply very good, and other users will also enjoy the panel very much. 

In our measurements, the panel delivers decent values (average brightness ~390 cd/m²), even though the contrast ratio of ~1,100:1 could still have been a bit better and the black value could have been lower. The response times of the 165-Hz panel are excellent, and the same goes for the stability of the viewing angles. Light halos won't be much of a problem, and PWM also isn't used.

* ... smaller is better

Our analysis with the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) shows that the panel is already very well-calibrated in the state of delivery, and the DeltaE deviation of less than 2 advertised by MSI compared to the DCI-P3 reference color space is correct. The deviation is also very small in the Grayscale, and there is no color tint. We are able to improve the deviations further with our own calibration (available for free download from the link further above), but this isn't really necessary. 

The TrueColor software also allows you to switch the color space, if you want to work in the sRGB color space, for example. In addition, the software also allows you to calibrate the display, and in this regard, the CreatorPro Z16P even offers some advantages compared to some workstations (such as HP's ZBook models with DreamColor panels that at this point don't offer any display software anymore).

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
7.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.4 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
12.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.2 ms rise
↘ 6.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Even though the reflective display surface helps with the image quality, of course it also makes things more difficult outdoors. As long as you are able to avoid reflections of light sources or bright areas, the contents can still be recognized fairly easily, but those who occasionally like to do mobile work or who work in changing light conditions would be better served by a matte display.

Performance - MSI uses Intel Alder Lake and Nvidia Studio

 
 

Test Conditions

In addition to the Windows settings, MSI also offers its own power profiles in the preinstalled CenterPro software and also a Smart Auto AI mode, which controls the performance independent of the load. During our tests, we received results that varied in parts with the power profiles. We received the best results with the Performance mode, even though there were also some variations here.

Processor - Core i7-12700H

The Intel Core i7-12700H is currently used in a lot of laptops, offering very good performance values with its 6 Performance and 8 Efficiency cores, but there can be some vast differences depending on the TDP configuration. In the CreatorPro Z16P, the values are chosen fairly conservatively, and they are not always stable. Sometimes, the processor is allowed to consume up to 76 watts, but in the Cinebench loop, it is only 55-60 watts. MSI should take another stab at this and allow for reproduceable results.

However, across all the CPU benchmarks, the performance is very good overall, placing only minimally behind the HP ZBook Studio 16 G9 with the Core i7-12800H. The regular Creator Z16P in the configuration with the Core i9-12900H is about 9% faster on average. In battery operation, the power consumption of the processor is limited to 45 watts, resulting in a performance reduction of about 25% in the multicore tests. You can find additional CPU benchmarks in our mobile processors section.

DPC Latencies

With the BIOS at the time of our testing, the test unit shows no limitations in our latency test (surfing the Internet, 4K YouTube reproduction, CPU load). Even though one of the drivers causes a slight outlier, there shouldn't be any problems using real-time audio applications.

Storage Solution

A total of two M.2-2280 slots
A total of two M.2-2280 slots

The MSI CreatorPro Z16P includes two slots for M.2-2280 SSDs with the fast PCIe 4.0 interface. Our test unit is equipped with the fast PM9A1 from Samsung (OEM version of 980 Pro). Its storage capacity is 1 TB, with 870 GB of that available to the user after the first startup. The transfer rates are very high, but due to temperature problems, the performance doesn't remain stable, dropping from more than 6 to around 4 GB/s after a few minutes. However, this is still fast, and there shouldn't be any limitations in practice. You can find additional SSD benchmarks here.

Graphics Card - Nvidia RTX A3000

GPU-Z Nvidia RTX A3000
GPU-Z Nvidia RTX A3000

Our test unit is equipped with the professional Nvidia RTX A3000 that received an upgrade from 6 to 12 GB of GDDR6-VRAM in 2022. There are many technical similarities with the consumer GeForce RTX 3060, but the RTX A3000 offers an additional 256 CUDA cores. This is the version with a TGP of 80 watts, with an additional 10 watts of dynamic boost that can be used by the CPU. 

The graphics performance falls fully within the target for the RTX A3000, and we also see a significant advantage to the smaller RTX A2000 in the ZBook Studio 16 G9. In terms of pure performance, the RTX 3070 or 3080 Ti consumer GPUs are of course faster, but the professional tests also show the advantage of the driver certifications. The MSI passes the 3DMark Time Spy stress test with 97.9%.

On the other hand, the gaming benchmarks show a slightly different picture, since the performance drops after a few minutes here, as you can also see clearly in our The Witcher 3 test. We were able to observe a similar behavior in the Creator Z16P with the RTX 3080 Ti, although there is no real technical reason for this, and we again suspect some problems with the performance profiles as the culprits here.

In battery operation, the RTX A3000 is allowed to consume a maximum of 40 watts, leading to a significant performance reduction of 75%. You can find additional GPU benchmarks here.
