MSI Alpha 15 Hands-On Gaming Laptop Review: Ryzen and Navi instead of Intel and NVIDIA | Notebookcheck
AMD made its comeback into the CPU business with its Ryzen series not only on desktops but also on laptops. The company made a similar foray into the GPU market with its Navi desktop cards earlier this year, a move that it is trying to replicate on laptops with its Navi 14 GPUs. NVIDIA has dominated the upper midrange of laptop GPUs for a while, but AMD is looking to change that, offering consumers more choice in the process. Read on to find out what we think of one the first upcoming all-AMD laptops.

The overall value of this MSI Alpha 15 AMD configuration remains to be determined in a future review, though, but potential buyers should know that $1099 and even less can actually get them Core i5 and even i7 gaming-laptops with 1660Ti graphics these days, so the big question is how will the RX 5500M fair against the 1660Ti, and not against the 1650, as suggested in AMD’s presentation.
