The display

The Creator Z16 HX Studio follows what MSI has termed a “people-centric design philosophy.” In that spirit, the Creator laptop features a 16:10 touchscreen display. The True Pixel display follows the Golden Ratio while also providing 11 percent more workspace compared to screens with the more common 16:9 aspect ratio.

With a QHD+ resolution, the display also features a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut and comes calibrated to Delta-E <2 with a CalMAN verification. This is great news for content creators who need reliable color accuracy for their work.

Pricing and availability

The MSI Creator Z16 HX Studio costs around $2,900. The expected ship date is yet to be announced. Find out more at us.msi.com.
