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.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
