MSI Creator 17 Review – performance notebook with mini LED display

The MSI Creator 17 is the first notebook to be shipped with this new generation mini LED IPS display, and I’ve finally been able to spend time in the past few weeks.

This is a mobile 17-inch workstation based on the latest hardware platforms from Intel and Nvidia for 2020 and supported by clear design lines, a compact metal case, a full keyboard with NumPad, good I / O and a fairly large battery. It’s also available with different screen options, but the mini LED panel is the main reason why you’d consider this over many other 17-inch laptops, though it’s an expensive upgrade.

At the same time, Creator 17, as far as I can tell, is largely based on the same chassis that was previously used for the MSI GS75 Stealth, and this leads to some quirks that you should be aware of, such as: B. high thermals with demanding loads, difficult to upgrade, poor speakers and not the most robust design.

In the following detailed overview we will deal in detail with all of these aspects as well as all other small aspects that could cause or prevent this for you.

Design and build

MSI chose a clean silver theme for the Creator 17, with few brand elements but a multitude of stickers that you should peel off. I like the exterior design, but somehow the interior looks a bit boring and dated compared to most other 17-inch portable notebooks.

Metal sheets are used for the entire exterior construction, but this is not a unibody design, and therefore it creaks and squeaks quite annoyingly. You will often notice these noises when you lift the screen for the first time, when you lift it from the desk and sometimes even when you put your hands on the armrest during everyday use. In fact, it is the same sounds that are documented in the MSI GS65 and GS75 series. Are you a deal breaker? At first I thought they could be, but I got used to them and after a while ignored them.

Despite these creaking noises, the laptop feels robust, with a strong screen and little flex in the main deck. MSI also made sure to blunt the front lip and corners, put grippy rubber feet on the bottom, line up an appropriate choice of ports on the sides, and implement a screen with strong hinges. They are still smooth enough to take it up and adjust with one hand, and open up to 165 degrees on the back.

This Creator 17 is also a compact and light series, a little over 5 pounds for a 17-inch notebook, making it one of the more portable options in this niche.

However, there is another aspect that I will not go into. MSI reserves the upper part of this laptop for the heat module, which sucks fresh air through the grill over the keyboard and through the plentiful cuts underneath and blows the hot air through the back and the side parts. With this design, however, the keyboard moves down towards the center of the laptop, leaving a short armrest (and a short clickpad). That’s why typing feels a bit tight for a 17-inch laptop, especially if you don’t use it on a large desk.

There is almost everything you need for this I / O, with the only exception that it is a full-size card reader. However, the video outputs are on the right. If you connect multiple monitors, your mouse area becomes confusing. MSI also has an IR camera on the top of the screen and a finger sensor in the clickpad.

Keyboard and trackpad

This Creator 17 has a set of full-size main buttons and a narrower NumPad area on the right.

This keyboard feels different from what I’ve seen on MSI gaming devices so far. The buttons are a bit stiffer and move deeper into the frame. Therefore, they didn’t feel as fast or as accurate to me as their other implementations. I struggled particularly with their feedback in the beginning, and although I’ve adjusted after a while, I don’t see myself able to make a living from it.

At the same time, this keyboard is very fast and quiet and also backlit. It has bright and uniformly illuminated white LEDs and three brightness levels to choose from. There is also a physical caps lock on this design, but since MSI has used this type of clear keycap, the light crawls out noticeably from some of them.

The Clickpad is a wide and short, but smooth and responsive glass surface with Synaptics drivers. The large format and the fact that it is centered on the frame puts my right hand right over it when typing, but the palm rejection seems to work well and I haven’t noticed any unwanted clicks or touches with my writing style. The surface rattles a bit, but the physical clicks are smooth and quiet.

In terms of biometrics, MSI has implemented both an IR camera and a finger sensor on this laptop.

screen

MSI offers this Creator 17 series with three different screen options, all 17.3 inches, matt and non-contact:

  • 144 Hz IPS with ~ 300 nits brightness and 100% sRGB color coverage;
  • 60 Hz UHD IPS with ~ 400 nits brightness and 100% AdobeRGB color coverage;
  • 60 Hz UHD IPS miniLED with more than 1000 nits of brightness, HDR 1000 support and 100% DCI-P3 color coverage.

The mini LED panel is the biggest novelty here and on this test device. This gets bright and punchy like no other screen I’ve seen on a laptop, and it’s also a very unified implementation with little brightness fluctuation towards the corners and no noticeable bleeding of light. However, black is washed out at maximum brightness, so that the contrast is lower than with a high-quality IPS panel. In fact, you’d have to decrease the brightness to about 70%, which is about 500 nits, to get decent black tones, as you can see in some of the images below.

Apart from that, I doubt that you can consistently use this panel at high brightness anyway. It’s just too bright for that. I could be biased here, but I usually keep my screens below 100 nits a day, otherwise my eyes will start to water. I agree that this screen is an excellent option if you want to edit HDR content or even watch HDR videos, although this happens rarely and I don’t think it’s worth it by this mini LED panel in addition claimed hundreds of dollars to pay glorified Netflix experience.

We received the following in our tests with an X-Rite i1 Display Pro sensor:

  • Panel HardwareID: AU Optronics AUO278E (B173ZAN05.0);
  • Coverage: 99.8% sRGB, 84.3% AdobeRGB, 98.2% DCI P3;
  • Measured gam
    ma: 2.22;
  • Maximum brightness in the center of the screen: 1145.11 cd / m2 with power supply;
  • Min. Brightness in the middle of the screen: 72.47 cd / m2 with power supply;
  • Contrast at maximum brightness: 1202: 1;
  • White point: 6200 K;
  • Black at maximum brightness: 0.95 cd / m2;
  • PWM: Yes, 26.6 kHz, <83% (source);
  • Answer: ~ 8.8 ms BtB (source).

Our sensor noticed some significant color deviations towards some corners, not the type that I could see with the naked eye, but the type that you, as a graphic designer, do not want if you are looking for color fidelity. In any case, test your device for such defects. After all, this miniLED is by far the main reason why you should consider this Creator 17 lineup.

Since this panel uses PWM with a brightness of <83% according to Notebookcheck's measurements, the flickering in this case is not even noticed by the most sensible given the high frequency of 26.6 kHz.

I also tried putting this mini LED panel against some of the alternatives, although the pictures may not show the actual differences properly. First of all, this first set of images is compared to a 4K 400 nits panel with 100% AdobeRGB color coverage, as is available on most other Creator-type laptops. It’s hard to see the color differences between the two, but the mini LED seems to be more vivid due to its increased brightness and cleaner white tones. At the same time, the black tones on this mini LED panel are washed out much more strongly at higher brightness settings, as already mentioned above.

Most of them also apply to comparing the mini LED panel with a standard 17-inch FHD screen with more than 350 nits of brightness and 100% sRGB color coverage. In this case, the difference between brightness and color vibrancy is even more remarkable, but the two are quite similar in terms of contrast, with the FHD panel winning at black at maximum brightness.

Based on these findings, this miniLED panel generally does not appear to be ideal for watching movies or darker content where you cannot benefit from the bright colors and peak brightness without having to accept the washed out black tones. For this alone, an OLED panel is a much better choice.

As for the other screen options of the MSI Creator 17, the 144 Hz FHD is fine if you’re looking for a general-purpose laptop that can play some games at the end of the day, though this Creator 17 doesn’t have to primarily my first choice for a gaming notebook. The second UHD screen, on the other hand, is a solid option for developers, cheaper than the miniLED panel and more contrasting, but not as bright or even.

Hardware and performance

Our test model is a lower configuration of the MSI Creator 17 with an Intel Core i7-10875H processor, 16 GB DDR4 memory with 2666 MHz, 512 GB fast Samsung PM981 memory and two graphics: the Nvidia RTX 2060 dGPU and the Intel UHD inside of the Intel platforms with Optimus.

Before we proceed, remember that our test device was sent by MSI and was running on software that was available in mid-July 2020 (BIOS E17G3IMS, Creator Center 2.0.54.0, GeForce Game Ready 446.57 driver).

MSI offers this in a variety of configurations with 8Core Intel i7 or i9 processors and up to RTX 2080 super graphics. Our test device is the i7 with the standard GPU RTX 2060, which is operated between the power modes with 60 to 80 W.

The updated Intel platform supports DDR4 memory with up to 3200 MHz. However, MSI only stored 16 GB of DDR4-2666 MHz memory at 2666 MHz on this device with 2 x 8 GB DIMMs. The two DIMMs are not easily accessible for interior upgrades because this laptop implements the inverted design of the previous GS75 series. This means that you have to remove the back and then take out the entire motherboard to get to the RAM slots and heat module. The two M.2 memory slots, on the other hand, are accessible as soon as you remove the rear wall.

Over here, however, MSI is still putting a warranty sticker on one of the screws, so the warranty will be void if you get inside. I know this is not the case everywhere, but I hope that these types of warranty stickers that prevent users from upgrading no longer exist. If anyone at MSI reads this, please stop being one of the last to implement this type of restriction!

The control software of the Creator series differs from that of the MSI gaming notebooks. It looks a bit cleaner, but is also more economical in functionality and allows control over some power, color and battery profiles, as well as updates, but no direct control over the fans. There is also no discrete GPU mode, so the internal screen signal is always routed through the iGPU on this laptop.

Before we talk about real performance on demanding loads, I have to mention that this Creator 17 is a good everyday laptop for multitasking, surfing and video. The CPU fan is always active, but barely audible when lightly used, while the GPU fans remain inactive in these cases.

For more demanding loads, we first test CPU performance by running the Cinebench R15 test more than 15 times in a loop with a 2-3 second delay between runs.

The i7 processor stabilizes at around 65 + W in the high-performance setting, which is reflected in frequencies of 3.5+ GHz and temperatures of 95+ C with values ​​of more than 1500 points, and the fans rise to 45 at the top -46 dB on. Level. Performance is thermally throttled and you can see it slowly deteriorate over several runs.

Undervolting is disabled by default and I couldn’t figure out how to enable it in the advanced BIOS settings that don’t work the same way as the GS series. This is unfortunate, as an undervoltage would certainly have helped here, since the performance is limited by the high CPU temperatures.

By switching to the balanced profile performance, the CPU is limited to 50 + W and can be operated at temperatures of around 85 degrees with somewhat quieter fans, but with reduced values. The silent profile further limits the fan noise and enables the CPU to work with around 50 + W. In this case, however, the performance is thermally limited and not performance limited. After all, the CPU performance in battery mode is limited to 33 + W, and the results match. Details below.

To put these results in the right light, this Creator 17 did worse than the other 15 and 17 inch implementations of the i7-10875H platform we tested. The lack of undervoltage support plays a big role here, but I blame most of the blame on the limited thermal design, which can’t properly cool the power-hungry i7 8Core processor and thermally limits its performance, even though it’s very high on average, high temperatures of ~ 95 ° C in this test.

After that was cleared, we further verified our results with the longer Cinebench R20 loop test and the cruel Prime 95 for the profiles High Performance and Silent. The CPU runs in both tests with 65+ W and high temperatures in the high-performance profile, but stabilizes in contrast to the R15 loop test in the more demanding Cinebench R20 loop test at only 30 W.

We also ran our combined CPU + GPU stress tests on this notebook. 3DMark Stress loops the same test 20 times and looks for fluctuations in performance and deterioration over time. This device passed it well. Luxmark 3.1 fully loads CPU and GPU at the same time. The CPU stabilizes at around 50 W and above 90 ° C, while the GPU runs at around 80 W and above 80 ° C.

Next, we ran the full suite of tests and benchmarks for the standard high-performance profile in the Creator Center.

  • 3DMark 13 – Fire Strike: 14185 (graphic – 15276, ph
    ysics – 18829, combined – 7444);

  • x265 HD benchmark 64-bit: 39.56 s.

We’ll also repeat some of these tests for the Silent profile if you’re interested in how the laptop works while the fan noise stays below 40dB. In this case we received the following:

  • 3DMark 13 – Fire Strike: 13822 (Graphics – 15229, Physics – 16586, Combined – 7116);
  • 3DMark 13 – time spy: 5867 (graphics – 5697, CPU – 7063);

  • CineBench R20 (best run): CPU 2425 cb, CPU single core 443 cb;
  • x265 HD benchmark 64-bit: 39.78 s.

The performance is quite similar for short burst loads, but deteriorates quite a bit for longer CPU tests.

Below is how to compare this i7-10875H + RTX 2060 configuration of the MSI Creator 17 with some other devices in the same niche.

– be updated

Let’s take a look at some games. We have carried out some DX11, DX12 and Vulkan titles for the standard profiles High Performance and Balanced. We have the following:

i7-10875H + RTX 2060 FHD High Perf FHD balanced
Far Cry 5 (DX 11, Ultra Preset, SMAA) 71 fps (51 fps – 1% low) 69 fps (49 fps – 1% low)
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (DX 11, Ultra Preset) 144 fps (101 fps – 1% low) 145 fps (100 fps – 1% low)
Red Dead Redemption 2 (DX 12, Ultra Optimized, TAA) 64 fps (52 fps – 1% low) 60 fps (49 fps – 1% low)
Rise of Tomb Raider (DX 12, very high preset, FXAA) 66 fps (40 fps – 1% low) 66 fps (40 fps – 1% low)
Shadow of Tomb Raider (DX 12, highest default, TAA) 72 fps (52 fps – 1% low) 65 fps (49 fps – 1% low)
Strange brigade (volcano, ultra preset) 111 fps (84 fps – 1% low) 109 fps (82 fps – 1% low)
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (DX 11, Ultra Preset, Hairworks On 4 79 fps (58 fps – 1% low) 74 fps (55 fps – 1% low)
  • Battlefield V, The Witcher 3 – recorded with in-game Fraps / FPS counter in campaign mode;
  • Far Cry 5, Middle-earth, Strange Brigade, Red Dead Redemption 2, Tomb Raider games – recorded with the included benchmark utilities;
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Optimized profile based on these settings.

The following HWinfo logs show the CPU and GPU speeds and temperatures in Farcry 5, Red Dead Redemptions 2 and Witcher 3 in the standard high-performance profile.

Both the CPU and the GPU run at high temperatures and average between 93 and 97 degrees for the CPU and 77 to 80 degrees for the GPU between the tested titles. At the same time, the fans rotate at head height of around 45-46 dB, which is not bad for a performance laptop.

Despite these temperatures, this Creator 17 works perfectly. The CPU is slightly thermally throttled, but still runs at high frequencies, while the GPU runs continuously at its intended 80W power.

Raising the laptop from the desk has no significant impact on performance or temperatures. Based on our previous experience with similarly designed MSI laptops, undervoltage in the CPU would have helped, but we couldn’t find a way to do this on this laptop.

Unlike the MSI gaming laptops, there is no Cool Boost fan profile available in the Creator Center. Therefore, the fans cannot be forced to spin faster to lower temperatures and improve performance.

Switching to the symmetrical profile reduces the fan noise to around 39-40 dB, but the CPU and GPU are also thermally limited. In this case, the GPU quickly reaches 86 degrees Celsius and then switches to about 58-65 W between the tested titles. While the above fps results may suggest only a slight difference between the high and the balanced profile, the laptop is actually 10 to 20% slower and runs hotter in games with balanced.

As far as gaming on Silent is concerned, this is not possible here as the GPU quickly rises above 86 degrees and switches the laptop to this protection mode, which limits the GPU and turns the fans at their maximum speed. Restarting the laptop was the only way to get it back to normal, or at least the only way I could find out.

In summary, this Creator 17 works fine in high-performance mode, but the components (and especially the CPU) inside operate at high temperatures, which can have a negative impact on their long-term reliability. I would consider the purchase de
cision.

Noise, heat, connectivity, speakers and others

Although I didn’t open this example due to this annoying warranty sticker, the Creator 17 shares its thermal design with the MSI GS75 stealth notebook with three fans and a couple of heat pipes, most of which are responsible for cooling the GPU is only a limited part aimed at the processor.

This is a problem if you are using a 10th generation power-hungry Intel i7 (or i9) that requires a lot of power and sufficient cooling to function optimally. Hence the above results.

However, I am also not so happy with this GPU thermal. This cooling solution barely copes with this 80W RTX 2060 implementation in the high performance profile, but MSI also offers RTX 2070/2080 super configurations for this case. These can reach up to 105 W in the better implementations, and I don’t think this thermal design can handle this properly. If you are interested in these variants, you should definitely take a look at some detailed reviews.

MSI also decided to implement a relatively quiet fan profile for this laptop, with the fans in the high-performance profile only increasing to around 45-46 dB at head height and below 40 dB with a balanced profile. They’re even quieter at Silent, but games and other challenging combined tasks aren’t an option on this profile. Here’s a quick summary.

  • High performance – 45-46 dB in games, 45-46 dB in Cinebench loop test;
  • Balanced – 39-40 dB in games, 42-46 dB in Cinebench Loop test, 33-37 dB in daily use.

As far as these outside temperatures are concerned, this Creator 17 runs cool in daily use, but heats up a bit during games. Longer gaming sessions are mostly fine for the high-performance profile, although the case itself heats up to almost 60 degrees around the E and O keys in this case, but the WASD and arrow areas remain at reasonably comfortable 40-45 degrees. However, the case heats up by an additional 5 degrees during balanced. This is another reason why playing at Balanced on this laptop is not ideal besides the limited performance documented above.

Remember that we conduct our tests in a controlled environment with the air conditioning set to 24 ° C. These temperatures can continue to rise in a hotter room.

* Daily use – streaming Netflix in EDGE for 30 minutes, balanced profile, fan at 33-37 dB
* Gaming – Balanced – Play Far Cry 5 for 30 minutes, fans at 39-40 dB
* Gaming – High Performance – Play Far Cry 5 for 30 minutes, fans at 45-476 dB

For connectivity, Wireless 6 and Bluetooth 5 via an Intel AX201 chip and 2.5 Gigabit Lan are available on this device. Our sample performed well in all our tests, both near the router and a little further away.

Audio is processed by two powerful loudspeakers that fire through cuts on the lower abdomen. These become very loud, at around 90 dB at head height at maximum volume, but the quality is very poor at the lower end. Headphones are a must for this laptop if you value sound quality.

The webcam is at the top of the screen and is flanked by microphones. The picture quality is not much, but fine for occasional use.

Battery life

The Creator 17 has an 82 Wh battery, a reasonable size for a laptop of this type. Optimus helps with runtimes, but the mini LED panel takes its toll if you want to use it at higher brightness settings.

We achieved the following on our device with a screen brightness of approx. 120 nits (30%):

  • 18 W (~ 4-5 h use) – Text editing in Google Drive, Silent Mode, 30% screen, Wi-Fi ON;
  • 16 W (~ 5-6 h use) – 1080p full screen video on Youtube in Edge, Silent Mode, 30% screen, Wi-Fi ON;
  • 13 W (~ 6 + h useful life) – Netflix full screen in Edge, Silent Mode, 30% screen, Wi-Fi ON;
  • 25 W (~ 3-4 h use) – Surf in Edge, Balanced Mode, Screen at 30%, Wi-Fi ON.

MSI combines this configuration with a generic and quite compact 180 W power brick that weighs 0.61 kg with the cables included in this EU version. Refilling the battery takes more than 2 hours. Up to 100 W USB-C charging is also supported via the Thunderbolt 3 port with a compatible charger (not included).

Price and availability

The 2020 MSI Creator 17 is available in select configurations from select retailers around the world.

Currently, basic configurations in the US start at $ 1799 with a 144 Hz display and an RTX 2060 GPU. However, the mini LED 4K models are much more expensive. They start in the US at $ 3000 for an RTX 2070 super configuration and here in Europe at $ 2700 for the RTX 2060 model with less RAM and memory, the model we tested here. It is expensive, very expensive!

Final thoughts

This MSI Creator 17 is currently the only notebook with a mini LED display, more than 1000 nits of maximum brightness, HDR 1000 support as well as excellent colors and uniformity. If you need this type of screen for your work from summer 2020, this notebook is for you.

Of course, this Creator 17 is not just about the screen, but also a fairly well-rounded product with a minimalist and light metal construction, proper I / O and inputs, the latest generation of hardware and a suitable battery.

At the same time, however, I have the feeling that this is endangered in many ways. Some of my complaints are minor, like the creaking noises that the chassis makes in everyday use, the rather uncomfortable narrow armrest, and the annoying placement on the video output connectors on the right side that you would expect to use frequently on this type of workstation laptop . Others bother me even more, like the very poor audio and especially the fact that the thermal module can barely handle this basic hardware configuration under demanding loads, with the 8Core CPU being thermally limited in the more demanding tasks.

And then there’s the pricing. This is a very expensive laptop that starts at $ 3000 for an RTX 2070 Super model and $ 3600 for the RTX 2080 Super with additional RAM and memory. It’s almost as expensive as the Razer Blade Pro or the Gigabyte Aero 17 OLED, and most of it comes from the mini LED screen. Zum Vergleich: Ein ähnlich spezifizierter MSI GS75 mit dem 300-Hz-FHD-Bildschirm ist 600-700 USD billiger, für wohl das gleiche Produkt und interessantere Designlinien.

Ist dieses Mini-LED-Display also so viel Geld wert? Und wenn Ihre Antwort JA lautet, lohnt es sich für diesen Schöpfer 17? Das überlasse ich jedem von Ihnen, um zu entscheiden, aber es gibt definitiv günstigere mobile Workstations.

Damit ist unser Test des MSI Creator 17 abgeschlossen, aber ich würde gerne Ihre Gedanken und Ihr Feedback unten hören.
