MSI WE76 in review: Mobile workstation goes for maximum performance

Nvidia RTX A5000 with 155 watts. MSI introduces the WE76, a powerful mobile workstation that is based on the GE76 gaming laptop. Besides a professional RTX GPU from Nvidia, the WE76 also impresses with a very good keyboard and a matte 4K display.
Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

MSI has sold its gaming laptops with slight modifications as mobile workstations in the past. Since gaming laptops are also designed for high performance, this move makes sense. The new MSI WE76 is based on the MSI GE76, which we already reviewed. But instead of the consumer GeForce graphics units, the WE76 uses the new professional RTX A GPUs from Nvidia, providing the certifications for professional software as well.

Our review unit is the WE76 11UM-456 high-end variant that costs 4,799 Euros (~$5,419) and is equipped with the Core i9-11980HK processor, the professional RTX A5000 GPU, 32 GB of RAM, a 2 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a matte 4K panel with full AdobeRGB coverage. There's also the alternative WE76 11UK-464 model that comes with the Core i7-11800H, the RTX A3000, and a smaller 1 TB SSD for 3,099 Euros (~$3,499).

Case - MSI does without the lighting

The case of the MSI WE76 is identical to that of the GE76 gaming model, but the manufacturer has omitted the LED strip on the front edge. The design is reminiscent of a gaming powerhouse, but the matte black and gray surfaces make the mobile workstation look quite discreet, which should also fit well in an office environment. Due to the use of a 16:9 display (which is also the case in many other 17-inch models), the screen bezel below the display looks very wide, and the ratio between the display and the case is also only 73%.

In terms of stability and workmanship, our review sample is excellent; the base unit in particular is extremely resistant to torsion. The lid is a bit more flexible, but we can't cause any image distortions. The hinges are fundamentally also properly adjusted, although they can't prevent the display from wobbling to a certain extent. Furthermore, this hinge design limits the maximum opening angle to 135 degrees, which is not as generous as in some other competitors.

The WE76 is a conventional mobile workstation with a focus on performance. Consequently, the focus wasn't on making the device as thin and slim as possible. Nevertheless, the difference is rather small in direct comparison with our two 17-inch competitors, the ThinkPad P17 and the ZBook Fury 17. Our test device weighs 2,922 grams, but you have to add another 1,060 grams for the bulky power adapter when transporting the laptop.

Connectivity - WE76 with Thunderbolt 4/USB 4

When it comes to ports, you'll find everything your heart desires, including enough USB ports and the modern Thunderbolt 4 interface. The ports for the power adapter, LAN, and external monitors (maximum of three) are on the back, while the USB ports as well as the card reader have been placed on the sides for quick access. An optional smart card reader, on the other hand, is not available.

SD card reader

The full-fledged SD card reader on the right is faster than the one in the old WE75. We determine transfer rates of 80-90 MB/s with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60). This is acceptable, but some of the competitors offer considerably faster modules. An inserted SD card protrudes 4 millimeters from the case.

Communication

MSI uses the fast Killer AX1675x module, which supports the modern Wi-Fi 6E standard as well as Bluetooth 5.2. The transfer rates are very good and at the top of our comparison field in our standardized Wi-Fi test with the Netgear Nighthawk RAX120 router.

Webcam

Although the 1080p webcam above the display offers a slightly higher resolution than the usual 720p modules, the image quality is still not particularly good. We had to deal with a relatively high amount of noise in particular during our recordings. Full HD videos can be shot at 30 FPS.

Maintenance

After loosening all cross screws, the complete bottom cover can be removed. Besides the two SODIMM slots, there are also two M.2-2280 slots available (1x PCIe 4.0 and 1x PCIe 3.0). The Wi-Fi module can also be replaced.

Input devices - SteelSeries with numeric keypad

Keyboard

Like its gaming siblings, the WE76 workstation counterpart also features a SteelSeries keyboard. However, the colored backlight has been omitted; instead, there is only a white backlight. The keys offer a comparatively long travel, and the typing feel is very good and can easily compete with the best keyboards of the established workstation competition. In addition, a full-fledged numeric keypad is integrated on the right side. Its keys are a bit narrower, but this didn't prove to be a problem in practice.

Touchpad

At 10.5 x 6.5 cm, the ClickPad isn't particularly large by today's standards, but mouse control works without issues. The smooth surface offers good gliding properties, and the built-in swipe fingerprint scanner located in the top left corner doesn't get in the way. The touchpad feels a bit clattery, though, because there's a slight gap before you reach the actual click mechanism. This means that the lower half can be pressed down noticeably without a click being triggered. Furthermore, the actual click is too loud, which makes it feel cheap.

Display - Matte 4K panel with AdobeRGB and 120 Hz

Subpixel grid

Slight screen bleeding
Slight screen bleeding

The WE76 is exclusively available with a matte 4K panel in a 16:9 aspect ratio. According to MSI, the display also covers the AdobeRGB color space in its entirety, and a refresh rate of 120 Hz ensures a smooth image, which is also enabled by default. MSI refrains from using the even faster panels of its gaming versions here, which makes sense, though.

The subjective image impression of the panel is excellent. Pictures are extremely sharp, and even bright areas don't look grainy. However, colors aren't quite as vibrant compared to high-quality OLED or mini LED panels. The average brightness is just over 400 cd/m², and the contrast ratio exceeds 1,200:1. Overall, it's a noticeable improvement over the 1080p display of the old MSI WE75, but some of the high-resolution panels from the competition provide better scores.

PWM is not used, and the response times are very fast, which means that there are no ghosting effects. At maximum brightness, you can notice slight screen bleeding at the edges when using a dark background, but this isn't noticeable in practice.

* ... smaller is better

According to the manufacturer, the 4K display covers the AdobeRGB color space in its entirety; we measured a rate of 96%. MSI has installed the TrueColor software, which can be used to switch the color space. We used the default AdobeRGB mode.

Our analysis (CalMAN and X-Rite i1 Pro 2) shows that all colors are below the important deviation of 3 even out of the box. However, we were still able to improve grayscale reproduction a bit with our calibration (the corresponding profile is available for download above). Therefore, the 4K panel is suitable for editing pictures/videos without any issues, but HDR content is not supported.

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
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.6 ms rise
↘ 5.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
17.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 9.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.5 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 20848 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The WE76 is certainly not a device that will often be used on the go, but the panel's matte surface is naturally beneficial outdoors, and it's very comfortable to use it on cloudy days at least. The viewing-angle stability of the IPS display leaves no room for criticism.

Performance - WE76 with Core i9 and RTX A5000

Test conditions

In addition to the normal Windows settings, MSI offers different performance settings with the preinstalled MSI Center Pro. We ran the following tests using the Balanced preset, but in some aspects, we'll also take a look at the effects of the other performance modes. The High Performance mode primarily affects the performance in the stress test, which is when you stress both the CPU and the GPU.

Processor

MSI has opted for the Intel Core i9-11980HK processor, which performs very well in our tests and can often place itself at the top of the comparison field. The processor can consume a maximum of 84 watts, but it quickly stabilizes at 70 watts and later at ~62 watts. This would also be possible with a normal Core i7-11800H as we can see in the ThinkPad P17 Gen 2. However, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is a bit faster under a comparable TDP configuration (~64 watts in the case of the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15).

The CPU performance is noticeably reduced on battery power, since the TDP quickly drops to just 45 watts and then 35 watts. Therefore, you should expect a deficit of about 30%-40% when using all cores. Further comparisons are available in our CPU Benchmarks article.

DPC latencies

Our review sample of the WE76 shows slightly elevated latencies in our tests with the current BIOS version, and there were also some dropped frames (skipped frames) when playing a YouTube video in 4K. This means that the device isn't ideally suited for real-time audio applications, but future updates could potentially improve the situation.

Storage

Our test device is equipped with a Samsung PM9A1 with a storage capacity of 2 TB, out of which 1.78 TB is still available after the first start-up. This is a very fast PCIe 4.0 drive that can also be appropriately taken advantage of by the WE76, since it impresses with very good transfer rates in the benchmarks. In addition, the WE76 offers another M.2-2280 slot for an easy way to expand storage, but the second slot "only" uses the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface. You can find additional SSD benchmarks here.
