After AMD has been increasingly gaining ground in terms of performance, Intel is finally trying to catch up with the Tiger Lake generation. We took a look at the MSI Prestige 14 Evo to see how well this plan has worked out.

Business users who want a compact and mobile 14-inch device should take a look at the Prestige 14 Evo. With a thickness of 1.6 cm, the lightweight (1.2 kg) device comes with a powerful and energy-efficient Tiger Lake processor in the form of the Core i7-1185G7; in addition, the latter's graphics chip (Iris Xe Graphics G7) is surprisingly fast.

Nevertheless, the device has a tough job against the AMD competition. Not only do corresponding laptops (e.g. with the Ryzen 7 4700U, 4750U or 4800U) offer more CPU power, but they're also more energy-efficient, which leads to less heat and noise development, respectively, and longer battery life.

If you absolutely need an Intel CPU, however, the Prestige 14 Evo cuts a fine figure. The highlights include the stylish design and the huge touchpad. MSI could improve the amount of ports and the quality of the webcam and speakers, though.

More information on the 14 Evo can be found in our detailed review.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
