MSI Introduces Mini-LED Panel into Prestige 16, a New Member in the Lineup of Prestige Series
[Aug 16th, 2022], (Taipei, Taiwan) MSI has updated its Prestige series lineup with new members, Prestige 16 and Prestige 16 EVO. Both in Urban Silver color and equipped with Intel 12th Gen Core i7 Processor, they are powerful productivity tools that business users can really appreciate.
The MSI Prestige 16 has a decent discrete GPU performance from NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and is the first Prestige laptop that has a 16:10 ratio mini-LED panel. With the MSI True Color Technology, it reaches the high dynamic range (HDR) with DisplayHDR 1000 standard, which significantly expands the range of two important factors—contrast ratio and color accuracy. Thanks to Dynamic Cooler Boost, MSI’s patented dual-fan thermal technology, Prestige 16/Prestige 16 EVO are powerful laptops that maintain less than 35 dB background noise. For business users who hold online conferences frequently, they can expect to have smooth video conferencing experience with the quadruple microphone and Ambient Light Sensor that come along with AI noise canceling solution.
For business users who want a responsive, long-lasting laptop, Prestige 16 EVO is certified by Intel EVO Platform. It also exclusively supports Tobii Aware solution among the Prestige lineup.
