Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Cyborg 15 A12VF-1035FR

Cooled by Cooler Boost technology using 2 fans, heat pipes and air vents, this versatile laptop designed for gamers and creatively oriented has a gamer look with its lightweight Translucent Black design with angular lines and translucent parts .
He is.

This creative gaming laptop PC offers good connectivity with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6 axis wireless modules for communicating and connect remotely, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 3 USB ports including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 devices are connected.

Designed with the help of SteelSeries to adapt to the habits of players, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit so that its keys can be clearly discerned in the dark.

As the screen is adorned with a frequency of 144Hz which provides better overall fluidity, including in games, than the standard 60Hz, gamers will appreciate it.
Suitable for Full HD content and videos thanks to its 16:9 format, the screen has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology.
Anti-reflective treated, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the MSI Cyborg 15 A12VF-1035FR

The MSI Cyborg 15 A12VF-1035FR may appeal to those looking for a lightweight, versatile laptop that performs well in creative-oriented gaming.

As it features the high-end NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GeForce RTX 4060 ray tracing graphics card, this creative gaming laptop is able to run recent games.

The GeForce RTX 4060 will therefore delight gamers. But also creators since it also accelerates processing under applications using GPU computing power, such as the Adobe suite, Vegas or VSDC.

Concretely, NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically activates/deactivates the GeForce RTX 4060 in real time depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus favors maximum operation on the Intel Iris Xe graphics module inserted in the processor while it is much less powerful because it consumes little energy which promotes autonomy.

In terms of autonomy, count on around 7 hours of battery operation in light use, which will interest some people looking for a Student laptop gamer weighing less than 2 kg.

Coming back to the GeForce RTX 4060, this GPU is used by Optimus to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe, typically for gaming.

It is the Core i5-12450H which houses the Iris Xe, an Intel Alder Lake processor with 8 hybrid cores which, combined with the 16 GB of RAM, provides good general performance.

Creators will appreciate that this core provides faster multimedia processing than a Quad Core and 8 GB DDR4/5. We clearly feel the difference in areas that are intensive in CPU and RAM resources and take advantage of multi-core, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Thanks to SSD storage, online game cards can be accessed more quickly than with a simple hard drive, while games/software launches, processing and starts/stops are carried out more quickly.

More generally, responsiveness and fluidity are much better on a daily basis with an SSD than with a hard drive.
Because in addition to being more robust, less energy consuming and silent, an SSD is much faster.

The SSD here offers 512 GB of capacity like many models on the market, which corresponds to the standard for hard drives.
Good point for scalability in terms of storage: an M.2 slot is available to add a second SSD if necessary.
If you need more space, you can also rely on an external storage module. Opting for a USB 3.0/USB-C device in this case represents an advantageous solution for obtaining fast transfers.

Finally, in the event of heavy loads (e.g. games, treatments) this lightweight, versatile gaming laptop PC is noisy and heats up.
We had associated with him a ventilated support to limit its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
