MSI Bravo 15: Raising the AMD flag
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.
