MSI Modern 14 B11SB review: 14-inch allrounder suffers from heat development

Fan heater. The Modern 14 scores with a Core i7-1165G7 processor, GeForce MX450 graphics core, and 16 GB of working memory. However, the latter is only able to operate in single-channel mode. In addition, the laptop heats up very significantly under heavy load and produces a lot of noise.

With the Modern 14 B11SB, MSI offers a 14-inch allrounder that brings a lot of computing performance thanks to the Core i7-1165G7 CPU and GeForce MX450 GPU. The competitors include devices such as the Schenker Vision 14, the HP Envy 14, the Honor Magicbook 14, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ALC05, and the Asus Zenbook 14 UX435EG.

Case and Equipment - The Modern 14 offers Thunderbolt 4

MSI uses an elegant aluminum case in the Modern 14, making it available in colors called Carbon Grey, Beige Mousse, and Bluestone. We are testing the blue model here. While the case shows a good workmanship, it could offer more stability: It is too easy to warp the case and base unit. When the lid is opened, the bottom of the lid serves as a footer, angling the base unit toward the user. The maximum opening angle is 180 degrees.

The B11SB offers two USB-A (USB 3.2 Gen 2) and a single USB-C (Thunderbolt 4) port. The latter supports Power Delivery and DisplayPort via USB-C and also allows using a docking station or external GPU. The 14-inch laptop also includes a total of two video ports (1x DP, 1x HDMI). The built-in microSD storage card reader is a slower representative of its kind (using our AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 reference storage card).

The WLAN chip (Intel AX201) supports the 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax standards and also offers Bluetooth 5 functionality. The data rates we measure under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices in close proximity and close distance between laptop and server PC; router: Netgear Nighthawk AX12) turn out very good.

Input Devices - The MSI laptop offers a keyboard illumination

MSI has equipped the 14-inch laptop with an illuminated chiclet keyboard, whose keys offer a short stroke and clear pressure point. The key resistance could be crisper. While typing, the keyboard has some minimal give, but this did not create any annoyance. The three-step illumination is controlled via a function key. Overall, MSI delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday tasks here.

The smooth surface of the multitouch-capable ClickPad (~10.5 x 6.5 cm; ~4.1 x 2.6 in) facilitates sliding of the fingers, and the pad also responds to inputs in the corners. It offers a short stroke and clear pressure point.

The brightness (310.6 cd/m²) and contrast (2892:1) of the matte 14-inch display (1920 x 1080 pixels) turn out good and very good respectively. At brightness levels of 10% or less, the display shows some flickering at a frequency of 92 Hz. This low frequency can lead to headaches or eye problems for sensitive users.

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
16 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise
↘ 7 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 22 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
25 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 20 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.8 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 detected 92 Hz ≤ 10 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 92 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 10 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 92 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15315 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

In the state of delivery, the display demonstrates a decent color reproduction, but at a deviation of almost 5, it barely misses the target (DeltaE smaller than 3). While the display does not suffer from a blue tint, it is unable to cover the AdobeRGB (41%), sRGB (59%), and DCI-P3 (40%) color spaces.

Performance - MSI combines Tiger Lake and Turing

With the Modern 14 B11SB, MSI offers a 14-inch laptop that provides sufficient performance for office and Internet applications, as well as simple computer games.

Test Conditions

The preinstalled MSI Center Pro also offers an option to configure a power profile among other things, and you can quickly switch between profiles using the F7 key. We used the "Balanced" profile during our testing and additionally also ran several benchmarks using the "High Performance" profile.

Processor

The Core i7-1165G7 quad-core processor (Tiger Lake) runs at a basic clock speed of 2.8 GHz, which can be increased via Turbo up to 4.1 GHz (four cores) and up to 4.7 GHz (single core). Hyperthreading (two threads per core) is supported.

The multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark runs for a short time at 4.1 GHz, before the clock speed drops to between 1.8 and 3.6 GHz. The clock speeds during the single-thread test range between 1.7 and 4.7 GHz. During battery operation, the clock speeds are significantly lower.

We evaluate whether the CPU Turbo is also used constantly in mains operation by running the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark for at least 30 minutes in a constant loop. On average, it reaches a relatively low Turbo level, but the clock speed can be increased significantly by using the "High Performance" profile.

System Performance

The fast and smoothly running system did not run into any problems, and the CPU offers more than enough performance for office and Internet applications. The dedicated graphics core allows using computer games to a limited extent. This is also accompanied by good PC Mark results. Since there is only a single memory slot, the working memory (16 GB, DDR4-3200) can only run in single-channel mode, so MSI is leaving some options for more performance unused. 

There is only a single slot for working memory.
There is only a single slot for working memory.
