MSI Bravo 17: AMD counters Intel and Nvidia

MSI Bravo 17: Budget gaming machine
MSI Bravo 17: Budget gaming machine
If you're looking for as much CPU power as possible in the price range below 1,500 Euros (~$1,696), the MSI Bravo 17 is exactly the right choice. The 17-inch gaming laptop is powered by the lightning-fast octa-core Ryzen 7 4800H.

After years of Intel setting the tone in the mobile CPU segment, AMD is now hitting back more and more. Not only does the Ryzen 7 4800H beat the Core i5-9300H, which is often built into similarly expensive laptops, but also the Core i7-9750H.

Unfortunately, the Bravo 17's graphics card can't quite keep up with the performance level. As a result, the Radeon RX 5500M is only sufficient for the upper mid-range, in which the GeForce GTX 1650 (about 20% weaker) and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (about 20% stronger) are also positioned.

A FreeSync-capable 120 Hz display takes care of the image reproduction, but it doesn't shine very brightly and has to live with a poor color-space coverage. Furthermore, certain money-saving measures are noticeable in regard to the port configuration as well. 

Overall, the Bravo 17 achieved a good 81% in our review.

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've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
