    This would have been a perfect laptop for a lot of people but the single fan is disappointing

      Hi Dave! Love your vids! You have a very professional but friendly disposition! 2 quick questions sir! Would liquid metal cooling help the heat problems and would this play cod mw and similar games as well as vr? Thanks so much and keep up the great work!!

      Hi, how did you undervolt this laptop?

      Nightwing_x02 19 days ago

      Silly question but do you need to UNDERVOLT this for gaming? You mentioned the performance only throttles when it comes to video rendering... uploads etc basically the creator aspects.
      But for gaming is it fine with stock settings?

    Hey Dave and others, I am looking for a laptop for a 3 year business marketing course with some light video/photo editing along with it, can integrated graphics work for those needs? Looking at this and Asus Zenbook 14, do I need an mx50 or can an Asus Zenbook i5 with integrated graphics meet my needs. Thanks

    Im between Lenovo Y540 RTX 2060, i7 and MSI Prestige 15, I need light and easy laptop for college with great battery life, BUT I like to game alot, I can sacrifice graphics but I want still smooth playing experience like in BFV, CSGO, Destiny 2 etc. Damn, decisions, any help is welcome!

    3:09 "I undervolted the CPU, I undervolted the GPU - like I said - to a lower clock".
    Undervolting is reducing the voltage, but maintaining the same clock.

    Dave, I know it was a simple mistake.
    But it is this kind of things that mislead people when talking about undervolting.

    Nevertheless, I loved your tutorial on undervolting, and I congratulate you on that.

    ARGH - so close to a perfect product for me, this is super-frustrating! I want something that's slightly more-capable than a ZenBook 13/14 for light content creation and occasional mid-tier gaming, preferably with a MicroSD card (as I deal with a lot of devices that utilize MicroSD, on a regular basis). The thermal issue is just a huge disappointment! I don't want to pay a price premium for this device and yet not get the full potential out of the high-spec components... The Stealth 13 (FHD version) is now down to $1300, but uses an older CPU and has fewer ports... Gah! :-(

    I am looking up to buying a MSI Prestige laptop. My main concern is costumer support, and quality and durability of MSI's products. Having lost almost 800 bucks on an Acer laptop that died a little more than a year later, and not getting any kind of costumer support, I do value durability over price.
    Is MSI worth the risk? This is, by far, the best laptop under 1100 bucks that is both portable and light, and gaming capable. Is there a better choice?

    Um... whats the best 13-14inch laptop for video editing? Xps 13(not six cores cause they are not available in my country) 7390 or xps 13 9380 or hp spectre x360 13 or msi prestige 14(six core option is available)..? I know i have to give up something but portability is so important for me and im not a professional so... what would be the best choice?

    • BarrettKillz
      BarrettKillz 15 days ago

      sunwoo choi Go for the hexacore Prestige 14. You can use different presets in the Creator Center and undervolt the CPU, while allowing the GPU to run at max tilt. That’s what I did and the performance is just astonishing.

    Will you review the 15' version ?
    Apart the "classical" (but at the same time not so classical...) 2 fans, It has a lot of good features on paper for a "modern" laptop : 1.6 Kg (I'm French ;-) ) 2 ssd slots, 2 RAM slots up to 64 GB.
    Very few people talk about the 32 or 64 GB RAM but if you buy today a laptop for +/- 5 years, this feature is very important IMHO as you say in your country :-)

    Laptops that don't have the separated numeric keys on the right side unfortunately don't serve 3D designers because they can't use many important shortcuts. But for anyone else it looks like a great laptop. Thanks for the video, as always you have very well explained.

    How about the fact that it has a single stick of DDR3 2133MHz? Is that a big deal?

    • BarrettKillz
      BarrettKillz 15 days ago

      Alex Grover It does not. The RAM is soldered and it’s LPDDR3, not DDR3, there’s a big difference. Also it runs in dual channel so performance is not really an issue.

  • Dreamy

    MSI is supposed to be known for great cooling and performance at stand out pricing. I’m glad that it’s designed to fight and undercut the razer blade stealth but the hard ware compromises are infuriating.
