The benefit sticker of this screen

The viewing angles are both vertically and horizontally around 178 degrees and are without colour or brightness distortion.

Because the version we analysed has a 10-point touch panel, something that not many laptops usually incorporate.

Run-time Benchmark Test

Before the test, we make sure the Ultimate Power Performance has been activated in Win10


3DMARK & PCMark10


Thermal Tests

We are pressure testing this workstation by using AIDA64.
Test room temperature: 23℃±2℃
CPU Idle temperature: 49℃±2℃
GPU idle temperature: 47℃

Under AIDA64 Single FPU pressure test, this Intel i7-10875H is running normally
Under AIDA64 CPU & GPU pressure test, the Intel i7-10875H is running normally
The CPU package temperature is around 86℃±2℃, GPU temperature is around 78℃±2℃

We are satisfied with the whole cooling system for MSI Creator 15, without many noise issues, the Cooler Boost Trinity+ cooling system can suppress RTX 2060 and Intel i7 10875H without any issue.


After testing the Creator 15, the first thing we want to highlight is the thermal performance, there is no overheating problem during all tests, the powerful heat sink has done its job well with an acceptable noise level, due to the elegant and only 20mm thick body design.

The autonomy of the equipment has seemed very good that can reach 6 hours with a new generation battery and 99.9Wh that by far exceeds the previous model. The keyboard is stable and comfortable for typing, while the touchpad is quite good either.

The facial recognition and fingerprint sensor also add credit to the team. And the USB connectivity is terse but fast, with a version of 3.2 Gen2 ports and a Thunderbolt 3. The other benefit that MSI brought back is the full-size SD card slot.

At present, the price of this CREATOR 15 A10SET is AU$3,999 and it’s quite high. It should not be far from the GS66 10SF with a better graphics card and a 240Hz screen but a less-powered CPU. Therefore, the CREATOR 15 is an attractive option for those who focus on working with a touch screen but less gaming immerse.
