Performance

It contains a 1.2 to 4.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7-1165G7 (11th Gen) processor with 12 MB of L3 Cache.

With an 11th gen Intel CPU you can be assured that the laptop has a recent CPU. Whilst not the latest, due to the release of the Intel 12 Series CPUs, it is still recent. However, with the release of the 12th gen you may wish to choose that instead to ensure the longevity of your new laptop.

There's a Integrated graphics card which is a Intel Iris Xe.

An integrated card tends to not offer as much graphics processing power as a dedicated video card.

The RAM slot type is 260-Pin SO-DIMM.

Because at least one of the ram slots in the MSI 15.6" Summit B15 is replaceable, you will be able to upgrade the ram at a later date.
