MSI Creator M16 A12UEV-468 Review And Specification

In addition to being a laptop intended for creative professionals and content makers, the MSI Creator M16 A12UEV-468 has some respectable gaming capabilities thanks to its features. Similar to the MSI Creator Z16 that we examined last month, the Creator M16 is a desirable option for those seeking an all-in-one system due to its capabilities and design.

Our review machine has a large 16-inch QHD display with an immersive 16:10 aspect ratio, along with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, 32GB RAM, and 1TB SSD storage. It also has a powerful 12th-generation Intel core i7 processor. The MSI Creator M16 is among the best laptops for video editing available today and can easily handle any program used by creatives thanks to its capabilities.

Is this middling performer capable of motivating prosumers to reach new heights in productivity? Let's investigate.

Design and Features

The Creator M16 A12UEV-468 sports an all-black chassis, giving it a sleek appearance while maintaining a sturdy feel in the hand. Despite holding a large 16-inch display, the overall design is attractive, and the weight is well dispersed throughout the body. The lid's silver chrome MSI dragon is a classy touch that gives the otherwise boring cover some personality.

The MSI Creator M16 opens quite easily, partly because to the small curved depression directly under the lid. When it opens, a roomy, big, black Chiclet-style mini-LED backlit keyboard confirms this laptop's business-like nature. A rectangular touchpad with a security-conscious fingerprint scanner sits beneath the opulent, clicky keyboard.

The keyboard deck is a good size, comfortable, and provides adequate wrist support for typing. The 2W speakers are concealed behind a grill above the keyboard, ready to produce high-quality audio.

In technical terms, the MSI A12UEV-468 measures 20.5 x 13.3 x 4 inches and has a weight of 4.98 pounds. Though it sounds heavy on paper, the Razer Blade 15 Advanced weighs in at 4.4 pounds, making it significantly thicker at 14 x 9.3 by 0.7 inches. In actuality, it is in the center of the pack.

Finally, despite the absence of a standard Display Port, the port variety is good, providing creatives with plenty of connecting possibilities. This device only has two USB 3.2 ports, one USB 2.0 port, one USB Type-C port, an audio combo jack, HDMI, and RJ45. That should cover all of your connectivity options, though we believe having an SD card slot would have been more beneficial.


The display is undoubtedly one of the MSI Creator 16's best selling points. With the 11th MSI Creator M16, MSI added the 16-inch 16:10 "golden ratio," or standard 2560 x 1600 QHD+ display, to their portfolio the previous year. The display has the same width as a conventional 15.6-inch monitor, but due of its exceptionally thin bezels, it is 0.4 inches higher and offers 11% more screen area in a very comparable form factor. Unlike some other thin bezels that have removed the webcam, this one still accommodates a 720p webcam on the top bezel despite the thin bezels.

The largest benefit of having this extra height is that it allows you to have a taller video timeline with a sizable playback preview area above it, which is useful for creative tools like Premiere Pro. On smaller laptop screens, this isn't practical because everything can feel a little cramped and difficult to operate unless you close some of your tools. This additional height is quite useful if you want to modify longer and more complex sequences. The additional height is useful for multitasking in general and for software like Blender and Cinema4D that have large toolbars at the bottom.

Color fidelity is another area in which this screen shines. Offering its True Color Technology, MSI asserts that it shows 100% of the sRGB color space. Because of this, every color is supplied with the utmost accuracy and detail, ensuring superb color fidelity for a wide range of applications. Depending on the kind of work you're doing, the content you're watching, or the games you're playing, you can use one of the six color profile presets available. To make sure that every display is appropriately portraying the colors, users can also cooperate on color-accurate projects and share or work from the same profiles.

This laptop has the power to run contemporary games, but its primary audience is makers, which explains why the 60Hz display is so low. While creative jobs don't heavily rely on it, gamers would benefit more from a high refresh rate as it can also make the laptop feel snappier and smoother when performing motion-intensive chores like web browsing. Once again. The larger screen area and the more color-accurate panel outweigh the 60Hz penalty if you want to use the MSI Creator M16 for creative work.
