MSI Prestige 14 Evo laptop review: What are the capabilities of the new Core i7-1195G7?

One of the fastest Intel subnotebooks. The MSI Prestige Evo was already able to achieve a good evaluation in our tests. With a new processor, this is now supposed to be even better. We evaluate in our test whether this is really the case.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo A11MO-026US test

We already had the MSI Prestige 14 Evo with the model number A11M-005 in our test. That was equipped with an Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor, which led to a good system performance. Our current test unit is now equipped with the brand new Intel Core i7-1195G7, which currently represents the top of the line of the Tiger Lake mobile processors. The graphics output is again handled by the internal Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 graphics unit. In addition, there are 16 GB of working memory and a 512-GB SSD.

Since nothing else has changed in terms of the equipment, we will only look at the system performance in more detail. All the other characteristics of this laptop are described in the review of the MSI Prestige 14 Evo with the Intel Core i7-1185G7. In addition to the comparison devices listed below, you can also select other laptops from our database below each section.

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
32.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 16.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
59.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26.4 ms rise
↘ 33.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 94 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.7 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17047 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance - The dual-channel RAM ensures a good 3D performance

With the Prestige 14 Evo, MSI offers a laptop with good performance and pronounced mobile characteristics. This should allow you to run office applications and creative applications whose demands on the system performance aren't too high without any problems on the road.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-1195G7 used here is a Tiger Lake processor that was manufactured in an improved process. The four cores are able to operate on up to eight tasks simultaneously and reach clock speeds between 2.9 and 5 GHz. However, the latter is only possible for a single core, while the simultaneous maximum for all cores is 4.9 GHz.

How much of this performance is available in everyday operation depends on the configured TDP value and the cooling system. With a short-time limit (PL2) of 64 watts and a constant limit (PL1) of 36 watts, MSI supplies the system with high power limits. As our Cinebench R15 constant load test shows, the Prestige 14 Evo achieves the same result with this as the predecessor model with the Intel Core i7-1185G7, which itself was only able to deliver the same performance as the Intel Core i7-1165G7 in the Schenker Vision 14.

In the single disciplines, the Intel Core i7-1195G7 in the MSI Prestige 14 Evo is able to achieve one of the top places in our test field particularly in the multi-core performance. However, thanks to their higher number of cores, the current AMD mobile processors such as the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U in the ZenBook 13 have a clear advantage here (despite their lower power consumption). Only in the single-core tests, the Intel chips still have a slight advantage thanks to their high Turbo boost rates, and here, the new i7-1195G7 also has a slight advantage compared to the i7-1185G7.

In battery operation, we were unable to determine any performance drop, neither in the CPU, nor the GPU performance.

Graphics Card

The internal Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs graphics unit is responsible for the display of image contents in the Prestige 14 Evo. It shares the working memory with the processor and benefits from a dual-channel configuration as we see it here. It achieves results in the 3DMark benchmarks that are comparable with the level of other laptops with this GPU.

Since the graphics performance should not be improved by the Tiger Lake refresh, the values should be considered very good and above average. While in most of the single disciplines the predecessor model of the Prestige 14 is able to occupy first place, our test unit achieves the highest result of our comparison field in the Time Spy test.

You can find out what performance to expect from other graphics cards in comparison to this in our GPU benchmark list.

Gaming Performance

The Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 in the Prestige 14 Evo is also able to display games with slightly higher demands on the graphics performance, as long as you use reduced detail levels. In this way, smooth frame rates around 30 fps are also possible in Full HD resolution. The Witcher 3 constant load test also shows that the performance remains constant in games over a longer time period.

You can find out what performance you can expect from other games in our GPU games list.

Emissions and Power Management - No coil whine anymore in the Prestige 14 Evo

Noise Emissions

With a noise level of up to 43.7 dB(A), the fan of the MSI Prestige 14 Evo is clearly noticeable under load. However, in daily operation with office applications and browsing the Internet, the Windows laptop remains mostly silent.

The coil whine from the Prestige 14 Evo A11M cannot be heard in our current test unit anymore.

Temperatures

According to our measurements, the surfaces of the Prestige 14 Evo warm up to 58.1 °C (136.6 °F) under load. While the case still doesn't feel hot with this, it is noticeably warm. At slightly above 30 °C (86 °F), the temperatures at the palm rest are just barely within a moderate range.

During our stress test, which lasted about one hour, the temperatures inside the Prestige 14 Evo rose up to 94 °C (201 °F). While testing, the clock speeds dropped to an average value of about 2.4 GHz, which is less than the basic clock speed of 2.9 GHz. However, the system could still be operated smoothly during this time, and it also recovered quickly after the end of the test. This means that you should not have to expect any limitations due to temperatures being too high in everyday operation.

Speakers

The speakers of the MSI Prestige 14 Evo produce a relatively high volume and a sound spectrum that emphasizes the mids, which makes them suited for the reproduction of voice content. However, for music and other media content, external speakers or headphones are recommended.
