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.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
