Reviews for the MSI Vector 16 HX A13VHG

MSI Vector 16 HX A13V review – Titan Performance in a 16-inch Package
Source: Laptop Media English
Compared to some bigger laptops, the MSI Vector 16 HX A13V can give them a run for their money. The device is bulky for a 16-inch machine. There is a reason for that – the high-end hardware that is well-cooled by the massive Cooler Boost 5 thermal system. The end result is great gaming performance thanks to the high CPU and GPU clocks during full loads. The 175W GPU TGP is tied with the “Extreme Performance” preset that will torture your ears with high noise levels. Still, in this mode, the Vector 16 HX isn’t as noisy as the MSI Vector GP78 HX (13V) or Acer Predator Helios 3D 15 SpatialLabs Edition (PH3D15-71). The “Balanced” preset is much more suitable for normal usage because the fans don’t spin that aggressively in this scenario but unfortunately, the GPU TGP is heavily reduced to just 120W.

Similar to the Desktop i9-13900K but with reduced clock speeds and TDP.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
