MSI Bravo 15: Raising the AMD flag

MSI Bravo 15: A high-end CPU and a mid-range GPU
MSI Bravo 15: A high-end CPU and a mid-range GPU
Both the Radeon RX 5500M and the Radeon RX 5300M are interesting options for price-sensitive gamers. We recently tested the latter for the first time in the MSI Bravo 15.

The price segment around $1000 is increasingly being occupied by AMD. One of the most recent specimens in this group is the Bravo 15 from MSI. The 15-inch laptop is equipped with a Ryzen CPU of the 4000 series (e.g. a Ryzen 7 4800H) and a Radeon RX 5500M or RX 5300M. Both models display most games smoothly at 1920x1080 pixels, although we would recommend choosing the RX 5500M due to its larger VRAM (4 rather than 3 GB of GDDR6).

Whichever GPU you choose, the images are displayed on a Full-HD display with 120 or 144 Hz that supports FreeSync. Other strong points include the compact and light case, which, however, could be a little more stable.

Unfortunately, there are very few ports (no card reader, no DisplayPort, no Thunderbolt) and high system noise under load.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.

I completed my master's degree in translation at the University of Vienna a few years ago and have been working as a translator for English, German and French ever since. I first started translating for Notebookcheck in 2017 and have learned more about computers than I ever imagined, and I have even become the person my family turns to for advice when it comes to consumer electronics. Other than that I also focus on everything connected to sustainability and renewable energy.
