MSI Bravo 15 A4DCR Laptop Review: For bargain hunters
If you are looking for a gaming notebook for around $1000 and would prefer an AMD chip, you will want to take a closer look at the MSI Bravo 15. The 15-inch device offers a good price-to-performance ratio and is clearly aiming for our Budget-Top-10 list. The processor is a Ryzen chip from AMD’s 4000 series and the graphics chip is either a Radeon RX 5300M with 3 GB of VRAM (A4DCR) or a Radeon RX 5500M with 4 GB of VRAM (A4DDR). Images are displayed on the Full-HD display, which also supports FreeSync, with 120 or 144 Hz.
Our test unit, which is equipped with a Ryzen 7 4800H, a Radeon RX 5300M, a 144-Hz panel, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM (2x 8 GB of dual channel mode) and two 1-TB SSDs, is a presample. This means that there might still be some changes to the insides or outsides of the final product. For example, the keyboard backlight didn’t work on our test unit, which we didn’t include in our overall rating.
