MSI launches trio of Intel 10th Gen powered laptops

We’ve seen plenty of monitor and peripheral announcements throughout this week, but there have also been some interesting announcements on the laptop front. This week, MSI announced the expansion of its creator line up laptops, the world’s first to be powered by Intel’s new 10th Gen six-core processors.

The new Prestige 14, Prestige 15 and Modern 14 laptops are all on the way and will be on full display at IFA in September. According to MSI, Intel’s new 10th Gen six-core processors deliver up to 50 percent faster performance depending on the task, so photo or video editors in particular should see a big boost.
