CES 2023: News, live coverage and news | Digital Trends Spanish
MSI just introduced a lot of new products in CES 2023, including some Stealth Studio laptops. Targeted primarily at creative professionals and gamers, these laptops come equipped with some of the latest gear that could make them highly competitive.
While there are three different variants, the one that stands out the most is the 14-inch Stealth 14 Studio, which could be on its way to being one of the best gaming laptops this year. Here’s why we think this particular laptop could put MSI ahead of the curve.
The three laptops on the way are the Stealth 17 Studio A13V, the Stealth 16 Studio A13V, and the Stealth 14 Studio A13V. The 14-inch model sounds pretty juicy – MSI bills it as “the most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop ever”. To back up that claim, it provides data indicating that it will be up to 33% more powerful than other 14-inch laptops. Of course, this kind of data isn’t very useful, so we’ll have to wait for some real benchmarks to really compare the Stealth 14 Studio against laptops like the 14-inch Razer Blade.
It only gets more interesting from there. The 14-inch laptop packs a high-quality QHD+ display with high refresh rates (240Hz), an IPS panel, and a 16:10 aspect ratio. When it comes to the internals, the laptop comes equipped with an Intel Core i7-13700H CPU, along with the choice between two GPUs: the Nvidia RTX 4070 and the Nvidia RTX 4060. We also get a PCIe Gen 4.0 SSD and up to 64 GB of DDR5 RAM, as well as Thunderbolt 4 connectivity.
Let’s move on to the Stealth 16 studio. Available in UHD+ (3,840 x 2,160) and with a 120Hz refresh rate, the 16-inch version adds a number pad for a total of 99 keys and bumps the IR camera up to Full HD. There is also an Intel Core i9-13900H CPU, but the choice of GPU is limited to an Nvidia RTX 4070 8GB.
The company doesn’t go into much detail about the Stealth 17 Studio. Presumably this will be a 17-inch laptop with features that cater to gamers, but we’ll have to wait and see the specs later.
Gaming and creator laptops are famous for their great battery life – you often have to keep them plugged in to get anything done. To limit this problem, MSI equipped them with discrete graphics mode, including a MUX switch on the motherboard. This should help you prioritize battery life or performance based on what you’re currently doing.
MSI hasn’t announced pricing for these laptops yet, but both the 14-inch and 16-inch Stealth Studios sound pretty exciting. Depending on what else comes out this year, the Stealth 14 Studio could turn out to be one of the more interesting gaming/creator laptops that’s on the smaller side. With its high resolution and high refresh rates, we expect it to be able to deliver some top-notch visuals.
