The MSI Creator 17 laptop shown in this review was powered by the Intel Core i7-10875H, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super, 64GB DDR memory and 2TB of NVMe storage. The laptop has a 17-inch Mini-LED display, an industry first. This panel, right out of the box, covers 100 percent of the sRGB colour space and 98 percent of the DCI-P3 gamut. Out of the box colour accuracy was very impressive, with a DeltaE value of just 1.85 (lower is better). The display clocked a peak brightness of 1000+ nits as advertised, making it great for people wanting to get into HDR video production.
Our test process incorporates and prioritises scores derived from the use of creative applications more than benchmarks. In terms of render completion whether its exporting 4K video or a 3D model in 3Ds Max, the MSI Creator 17 comes out ahead. Its closest tested competitor, ie: the Acer Concept D7 Pro might be much cheaper, but the MSI Creator’s 17 incredibly colour-accurate Mini-LED display is one of a kind, and for now, worth the premium. Is this perhaps the best laptop for video editing 2020? How do the mini led display perform? Check out our MSI Creator 17 Review
