80.9% MSI Bravo 17 laptop review: All-AMD gaming machine | Notebookcheck
While Intel and Nvidia dominated the gaming laptop market in the past years, more and more devices based solely on AMD components are now appearing. The Bravo 17 from MSI trumps with modern 7 nm components. A Ryzen 7 4800H is used as a processor, while a Radeon RX 5500M takes care of the graphics.
