Back in October, MSI launched the Alpha 15, the brand’s first ever AMD-centric gaming notebook lineup. Earlier today at CES 2020, the PC components and notebook maker lifted the veil off the Bravo 15, its first gaming notebook to be powered by AMD’s new Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors.
Specifically, the Bravo 15 we saw on the floor housed the Ryzen 7 4800H mobile processor, along with 16GB of RAM. Much like the Alpha 15, the notebook’s output is handled via AMD’s Radeon RX 5500M discrete graphics. While the display is a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate and support for AMD’s FreeSync anti-tearing technology.
The design of Bravo 15 is, oddly enough, relatively simple; the chassis doesn’t stand out and, frankly speaking, it looks very similar to the build design MSI used with its GF series of gaming notebooks. Further, the keyboard on the model felt quite shallow to the touch, and seemingly only had one colour. However, MSI assured us that the final version of the Bravo 15 will have a per-key RGB option, as well as a choice of another Ryzen 4000 series processor.
It’s also got a fair amount of ports, including two USB-C ports, USB-A ports, and the HDMI 2.0b port to connect the notebook to another display.
Like the GE66 Raider and GS66 Stealth gaming notebooks, the Bravo 15 will be available at a later date this year. But just like the other two, there still isn’t an exact date or pricing.
