Congratulations to the MSI Prestige 16 AI Studio, this year’s Best Laptop winner at CES 2024.

Targeting mobile content creators, the MSI Prestige 16 AI Studio comes equipped with a powerful Intel Core Ultra 9 processor and dedicated graphics up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070. The lightweight 16-inch laptop features a 16:10 UHD+ OLED screen that displays 100% of the DCI-P3 cinematic color space.

Further tailored to creators on the move, the Prestige 16 AI Studio’s two Thunderbolt ports, RJ45 ethernet port and full-size card reader are located on or toward the back of the computer to keep cables tidy. The system also boasts the efficient Cooler Boost 3 cooling system. Plus, it offers a 99.9 Whr battery life that MSI promises will get you through up to 16 hours of video playback.

AI upgrades

While the Prestige 16 AI Studio is outfitted with some impressive hardware, its standout features come from its AI integrations. Powering these is the neural processing unit (NPU) built into the Intel Core Ultra processor. This dedicated AI core leads to more efficient AI processing, enabling features like the MSI AI Engine and AI Noise Cancellation Pro.

With the MSI AI Engine, the laptop can sense different user scenarios and adjust performance, power consumption and other settings to match.

Likewise, AI Noise Cancellation Pro will automatically adjust to provide the best possible noise cancellation. It also offers automatic Studio EQ for studio-quality sounds, as well as Conference Enhancer mode for customizable directional or omnidirectional audio capture.
