82.3% MSI Summit E14 laptop review: GeForce GTX graphics without the GeForce GTX weight | Notebookcheck
The Summit E14 may look like an ordinary Ultrabook, but it manages to house a full-fledged GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q to offer significantly faster graphics performance than the best that Intel Iris Xe and AMD Vega can currently do. There are some costs to be aware of, however.

83% Review MSI Summit E14 A11SCST-069NE
Source: L&B TechReview English
MSi Summit E14 is a delicious little ultrabook for the office, home office and an everyday life with travel and meetings as we remember it. The hardware is so ample that you get things out of hand in places to sit and fret about waiting for a slow computer. It seems almost superfluous to have sacrificed a mediocre GeForce graphics card on it when the Intel Iris Xe graphics that come with the processor is almost as fast. All in all, though, you get quite a bit of PC for the money, and the touch screen justifies a price that is a little higher than the cheapest competitors.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop GTX 1650 Ti to achieve a much lower power consumption (35 versus 50 - 80 Watt).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650, but is also available in different variants with a TGP ranging from 55 - 80 Watt (and two packages).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Tiger Lake:

i7-1185G7: Tiger Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock around 3 - 4.8 GHz. Produced on the second-gen 10 nm Intel process.

Intel Alder Lake-P:

i7-1280P: The flagship Alder Lake-P CPU featuring 6 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. This i7 is designed for use in ultra-light laptops; its performance cores feature the thread-doubling Hyper-Threading technology for whopping 20 threads in total. The CPU runs at 1.3 GHz to 4.8 GHz and has an "Enterprise" tier vPro feature set. Core i7-1280P has a Base Power of 28 W and a built-in 96 EU Iris Xe GPU.

1.295 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.6 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


82.86%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
