MSI Prestige 15 laptop review: Dazzling 4K image quality, solid performance

Pixel overload. MSI's Creator notebook combines outstanding image values with an efficient and powerful processor as well as a separate graphics chip with implemented ray tracing. The combination seems particularly suitable for image editing/processing at a higher level.

The MSI Prestige 15 A12UD-093 seems made for graphically demanding tasks. Its 4K display with AdobeRGB delivers detailed imagery with the most lifelike colors possible, so that high-quality digital photographs can be viewed, modified and optimized without the need for an external monitor. An Intel Alder Lake processor from the "P" series, an i7-1280P in this case, provides enough computing power for all tasks. Graphically intensive tasks are handled by the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.

At the same time, MSI has made sure that the typical problems associated with an overly powerful configuration with a separate graphics chip do not occur. Power consumption has been limited, which results in long battery runtimes, minimal fan noise and limited heating. Quiet and concentrated work takes precedence over pure performance values. 

In addition to the model under review, there are also other variants that only offer a Full HD display with a smaller color space. In this case, an external monitor would indeed be necessary for professional image editing. Furthermore, the weaker and even more economical Intel Core i5-1240P can be chosen in place of the i7-1280P.

Regarding content creation, media editing and more, competition is fierce. The Acer Swift X SFX16 with the Intel Arc A370M, the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X OLED or the Schenker Vision 14 all deliver either lesser or greater performance values, but also aim to offer quick video and image editing.

Case - The Prestige 15 makes a serious impression

With a deep dark gray, almost black, and the barely recognizable "MSI" logo on the back, the chassis can be described as sober and discreet. The metal display lid and keyboard frame look high-quality, but are very sensitive to fingerprints. That the display frame and base plate are made of plastic is clearly noticeable. 

At least this does not affect stability. Display teetering is only minimal and one-handed opening poses no issue, at least up to 180 degrees. Nothing can be twisted here either. The bottom remains flat at all times, and the screen can only be bent minimally.

Looking at the built-in components, there are no surprises in terms of weight and size. 1.8 kg is appropriate for the display and the hardware and correspond to the values of rival laptops. The same also applies to the dimensions, which, considering the display and its 5 mm-wide screen edges, are quite compact overall. The case could have been a bit slimmer.

Equipment - Creator notebook with a fast connection

The number and speed of the ports are impressive. In particular, two Thunderbolt 4 ports on the left offer variable use and high transfer rates. The battery is also recharged via this port, but because there are two ports next to each other, one is always free. Fortunately, the two normal USB-A ports reach 10 Gbit/s, which should be sufficient for an external SSD in many cases.

A few other essential connections include the card slot, HDMI and headset. However, the selection is a little scarce overall. A LAN port or the typical Kensington lock are missing. There is also no real argument against a full SD card slot, for which there would have been plenty of room.

SD CardReader

The values measured values with the AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 reference card are average. This means that the speed of transferring photos and videos is acceptable overall, meaning that large amounts of data can be moved onto the Prestige 15 in just a few minutes.

Communication

At least when receiving data, the Intel AX211 WLAN module achieves above-average values. When sending, the values are a little too low, although just under 1,000 Mbit/s is still impressive. The measurement of the maximum transmission speed was prone to errors in our tests, but we can confidently assume that this functions well enough in practice in view of the good reception rates.

Webcam

Infrared and simple camera in combination
Infrared and simple camera in combination

The webcam of the MSI Prestige 15 is not very impressive: merely HD quality, which does not work well during video calls, is actually too little for a multimedia notebook. On the other hand, recognition in low light is convincing. Even the glow of the display is sufficient so that the laptop can be used for video telephony at any time.

The two microphones do not compensate for the weak video quality. Voices sound tinny, and what is said can only be understood when speaking directly in front of the laptop.

At least facial recognition with infrared works reliably. Overall, the webcam is usable, but the resolution and the microphones meet the minimum requirements only.

Security

Although there is no Kensington lock for securing the device at the desk or workplace, at least the login can be made secure via facial recognition and the fingerprint sensor.

Somewhat unusual is the position of the sensor in the touchpad, but its generous design ensures that this does not leave a negative impression during use. Left-handed users may view this differently, however. The build and operation scored very well in our functional tests. The technology appears to be significantly more robust than many keyboard-inbuilt fingerprint sensors.

Facial recognition on the Prestige 15 also ran free of error. Regardless of lighting conditions, the infrared camera recognized the user correctly.

Maintenance

The seal has to be broken.
The seal has to be broken.

The MSI laptop was easy to open. Only seven Phillips screws have to be loosened in order to detach the baseplate with little effort. Unfortunately, the middle screw is covered with a seal. After contacting MSI, we were assured that breaking the seal does not void the warranty. Nevertheless, this may have a deterrent effect on some users.

Otherwise, a look inside reveals a well thought-out internal design. Only the battery is screwed in. The WLAN module can also be swapped if necessary.

Moreover, expanding the storage space is designed to be completely straightforward, which makes the seal even less comprehensible. In addition to the already installed SSD, an additional SSD can be inserted into a second M.2 slot in the standard 2280 format. This makes perfect sense for video editing.

Only the RAM is permanently soldered. At most, this could prove problematic in the notebook variant with 16 GB at some point in the future. The 32 GB configuration, on the other hand, should be completely sufficient in the long run.

Battery, SSD and WLAN module are replaceable. A second M.2 interface is free.

Input Devices - Creator laptop with simple standard

The clearly recognizable lettering and, above all, the familiar size and standardized spacing save any getting used to. Typing on the keyboard of the MSI Prestige 15 is fast and precise. It is neither particularly loud nor very quiet.

Key resistance is well dosed and should also be well suited for long periods of work. However, a little more than just 1 mm travel would have been desirable, especially with intensive use.

The backlighting also leaves no room for criticism. Three different brightness levels are available, and no irregularities were observed. In addition, the illuminated frame of every single key ensures excellent orientation in dark environments.

The touchpad also leaves a positive impression overall. Inputs with one or more fingers are implemented precisely. The glass surface feels very good, and the covered keys in the lower area also function smoothly.

We couldn't see any real advantage in the particularly wide design at first glance, especially since the fingerprint sensor is also installed here. The length of only 65 mm, on the other hand, seems a bit tight. Here, one quickly glides beyond the touchpad.

Display - The Prestige 15 offers 4K and more

The display values clearly indicate that MSI is very serious about positioning itself as a creator laptop. At a diagonal of 15.6 inches, the 4K resolution ensures an extremely high pixel density. Individual pixels are not discernible, even at close range. Alternatively, a Full HD display can be used, which unfortunately performs a little worse in terms of color reproduction.

The contrast is impressive and is supported by a very low black value, among other things. Brightness is slightly above average at an average of 420 cd/m², which does not decrease in battery mode.

We observed minimal screen bleeding at the bottom edge. However, this only occurs during full screen brightness, a completely black picture and long exposure times. This also should not be visible to the naked eye. Response times are acceptable for a multimedia laptop. Flickering was not detected at various brightness levels.

However, 4K resolution on an area that is hardly larger than a DIN A4 sheet does not seem really practical. Windows recommends a magnification of 250%, which seems realistic. Even 200% makes reading on the screen difficult. A full-size display makes working on the Prestige 15 almost impossible. Moreover, very few are likely be able to tell the difference whether the displayed image is in FullHD or 4K because the details are simply too small.

In any case, the display is made for photo editing. But your own eyes may have trouble recognizing this level of detail. Connecting an adequate monitor in combination with a built-in Full HD screen seems more practical.

* ... smaller is better

MSI promises 100% coverage of the AdobeRGB color space on the Prestige 15. Rather, it bluntly states that this should typically be the case. The measured 94% is a little off-target, but is still suitable for displaying and editing photos at a high level.

The display is much worse at covering the DCI-P3 color space, which is often used for video content and has larger green and yellow ranges. This is not surprising, since the focus is on image editing.

The specified factory calibration is slightly off the mark in our review sample with a maximum DeltaE of 2. To be fair, color deviations are only perceptible from a value of 3, so the average value remains well below that.

Accordingly, the screen of the Prestige 15 will display almost lifelike colors without any further adjustments.

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
26 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11 ms rise
↘ 15 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 53 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
51 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23 ms rise
↘ 28 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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 not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19466 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Texts are legible outdoors and even in direct sunlight. On the other hand, you should look for a shady spot for colorful screen content, otherwise color reproduction will suffer.

Overall, the brightness allows the Prestige 15 to be used outdoors, even if only just.

As usual, IPS panels should ensure almost perfect viewing angle stability, but this is not the case with the Prestige 15. Colors and brightness remain unchanged only up to about 30 degrees. Beyond that, a brownish discoloration can be seen, especially on black surfaces.

We suspect an interference effect due to the high pixel density, as can be seen in double slit experiments. Another point that speaks in favor of the models with Full HD screens.

Performance - Quick & quiet creator notebook

The combination of a very efficient, yet powerful Intel Core i7-1280P and a  Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics processor ensures minimal waiting times during system and program starts. With 14 cores and 20 threads, the MSI Prestige 15 doesn't let itself get fazed by multiple programs running simultaneously. Of course, 32 GB of RAM also helps.

Like the large desktop variant, the mobile RTX 3050 Ti is primarily suitable for image and video editing. Complex tasks such as video rendering and photo optimization are correspondingly fast. However, games reveal the GPU's limits. A smooth gaming experience is only realistic at a limited resolution and restricted details.

If the shortest processing times aren't so important for media editing, nothing speaks against the Prestige 15 A12UC-099 with the Intel Core i5-1240P and 16 GB RAM. At most, the limitations only really come to fore in multitasking.

Testing Conditions

"Smart Auto" was set in the MSI Center Pro for all tests. This mode is intended to ensure that the most desirable settings for the processor are selected according to the running programs and the environment.

The extended mode with dynamic fan noise, which is supposed to be lower in quiet environments than in loud ones, still seems to be in the experimental stage. Apart from error messages, there were no noticeable changes.

On the other hand, those who want to select the performance mode themselves have the following options:

High Performance Balanced Quiet Super Battery
PL1 50 watts 35 watts 20 watts 12 watts
PL2 64 watts 40 watts 35 watts 15 watts

Processor

The Intel Core i7-1280P has 6 performance and 8 efficiency cores, amounting to a total of 20 threads (only the P-cores support 2 threads). The configuration is thus strongly reminiscent of the Intel Core i7-12700H, which is, however, designed for a continuous load of 45 watts and not just 28 watts like the i7-1280P.

At the beginning of our endurance tests with Cinebench R15, they are at least on par because of the comparable configuration. However, the Prestige 15 has to restrict the power very quickly, which leads to significant performance reduction. Nevertheless, the CPU remains above an Intel Core i7-11370H and at the level of the AMD Ryzen 5 6600H, even with the handbrake on.

The i7-1280P can thus utilize its strengths exactly in the way that MSI intended. An extremely high amount of performance is available in the first few seconds, which is required when running programs or installations. Image processing also rarely takes more than 30 seconds, even in large files. 

The i7-1280P can therefore keep up with the much bigger i7-12700H in all typical scenarios. Only more demanding programs such as video editing software and games experience drops in performance. But these are less dramatic than the power consumption suggests: While the i7-12700H delivers around 40% better rates, it consumes almost twice as much power. 

The processor installed here is still on the level of not quite up-to-date CPUs that are found in gaming notebooks. Because of its significantly lower power consumption, the ventilation remains quiet and the case heats up less.

More benchmarks for different processors can be found in our CPU benchmark list.

System Performance

Our good, albeit subjective, impression is reflected in the PCMark scores. The standardized and relatively realistic test places the MSI Prestige 15 high in the rankings. The processor and graphics card, which are very powerful for short periods of time, never have any difficulties. 

One reason for this is also the frugality under sustained load. The system doesn't heat up as much here. Maximum performance is therefore always available when needed, such as when a program has to be started, which is then only for brief moments.

The high computing power can always be felt when browsing, installing and starting games.

DPC Latency

The Prestige 15 is not suitable for real-time audio and video editing. It has the highest latency in the field of competitors.

The kernel mode driver framework is mainly responsible for this. An adjustment of the driver configuration, updates and more may remedy the problem.

Storage Devices

The Micron SSD achieves more than 6,000 MB/s in sequential reading. This rate also remains stable over longer periods of time, which speaks for the adequate cooling of the hardware.

This means that the PCIe 4.0 interface can be used well with the M.2 SSD. However, the other rates are not quite on par with the best hard drives. But this does not have any negative effects for a fast, albeit not outstanding creator notebook.

On the other hand, the size of 1 TB is fitting. Raw data, whether videos or images, take up a lot of space. So the second SSD slot makes sense, which is easily accessible regardless of the seal.

One slot is still free for a second SSD.
