With the Prestige 14 Evo, MSI is offering a slim and mobile laptop for everyday tasks, so it should not be a surprise that this is now also available with new hardware configurations.
After we have already evaluated the Prestige 14 Evo with the label A11M in December of 2020 with the Intel Core i7-1185G7, the slim laptop now shows up in our tests with the label A11MO and an Intel Core i7-1195G7.
However, the slightly increased clock speeds of the quad-core CPU are hardly noticeable in our benchmarks initially. While nonetheless, the performance remains at a very high level, it hardly surpasses that of the predecessor model.
The advantage of the processor used can therefore be found in the improved chip and the corresponding improved power efficiency. Even though the performance level of the two CPUs in the Prestige 14 Evo remains almost the same, the A11MO achieves a battery life of 8.5 hours in the WLAN battery test. With this, it lasts almost one hour longer than the A11M predecessor model.
The rest of the characteristics of the MSI Prestige 14 Evo remain the same, so there are again two Thunderbolt 4 connections onboard. The maintenance options continue to be limited to replacing the SSD and the WLAN module, but the good input devices are also included again. Since MSI continues to use the same panel type, you also should not expect anything new in terms of the display quality.
Our review of the MSI Prestige 14 Evo A11MO shows all the changes in behavior due to the new processor in detail.
