Design, keyboard and screen

The MSI Cyborg 15 A13VE-472XES is a 15.6 inch laptop very charming in this section, as it exhibits a cyberpunk aesthetic that is very compatible with the tastes of the players. The chassis is made of plastic, but it is robust and exudes personality, as it has a base with translucent sides that look great, even the WASD keys are transparent to match the aesthetic. With that in mind, the top cover of the display is aluminum and the body has a matte black finish.

 

With dimensions of 359.36 x 250.34 x 21.95mm and a weight close to 2 kilos, it is clear that the MSI Cyborg 15 A13VE-472XES is a bulky laptop, but come on, gaming equipment is always like that. Leaving that last aside, when we open the equipment we are greeted by a full-size, chiclet-style keyboard. It consists of blue backlighting and some transparent keys that match the style of the equipment.

Then we have the screen, which is a 15.6-inch IPS panel with FullHD resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, which gives us a vibrant and well-detailed image at all times, not to mention that it is also very fluid. Although yes, it is not the best for design tasks, since its color accuracy is relatively low (DCI-P3 of 49.9%) and the brightness level is slightly below usual (240 nits).

 

Hardware and features

The MSI Cyborg 15 A13VE-472XES is equipped with a processor Intel Core i7-13620H of the Raptor Lake family, and alone scores 10,670 points in Geekbench 5 (multi-core test). With that in mind, you are accompanied by some reasonable 16GB DDR5 RAM in dual channel and one card RTX 4050 graphics card with 6GB GDDR6 memory. For its part, the internal storage is the least generous element of the set, being only 512GB (PCIe SSD Gen4x4).

Be that as it may, this is a fairly competent combo for moving the latest games and working with editing programs smoothly. For example, user benchmarks show that MSI Cyborg 15 A13VE-472XES can run Cyberpunk 2077 at 60FPS with high graphics and DLSS support. DOOM Eternal averages more than 130FPS also with the graphics on high, while titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6 and Dirt 5 also run at 60FPS with a mix of graphic options between medium and high, although yes, they can drop to 30 or 40FPS briefly in very heavy scenes.

 

As far as autonomy is concerned, you do what you can. Its 53.5Whr battery can offer 5 hours of normal use with one or another open productivity app, but in gaming at most it can reach 2 hours with certain energy saving options.

With all that in mind, the MSI Cyborg 15 A13VE-472XES does not include any operating system out of the box, so it will be necessary to install one as soon as we take it out of the package.

Connectivity

In this section we have the usual, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 on the wireless front, while on the physical level there is a USB-C 3.2 port, a pair of USB 3.2 type A, RJ45 Ethernet, an HDMI 2.1 output and a 3.5mm audio jack.
