Oriented game and creation, the MSI Bravo 17 A4DDR-011FR is a new versatile black laptop with high performance 17 inch IPS Full HD anti-reflective FreeSync screen whose 120Hz frequency enhances fluidity in games. Powerful thanks to its good amount of RAM and its AMD Octo Core Ryzen 7 Renoir processor which accelerates multimedia processing, it is equipped with the AMD Navi 7nm Radeon RX 5500M graphics card to run many games and strengthen processing. It also benefits from fast SSD storage for great responsiveness, a chiclet backlit RGB keyboard or even Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity, all in a relatively thin and light chassis.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Bravo 17 A4DDR-011FR
It sports a relatively sober and elegant design for a portable gamer which it nevertheless takes up the codes with its black brushed aluminum finish chassis, it sports a rather elegant and discreet look for a gaming computer.
Cooler Boost 5 technology is present to cool it, relying on 2 fans and 7 heat pipes as well as ventilation grilles.
In terms of connectivity, this computer oriented players and creators is well provided thanks to its Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ), its useful HDMI video output in order to connect it easily to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB 3.1 Type-C without forgetting its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
A backlighting system, here of RGB type by key, equips of course the chiclet keyboard which is practical to correctly discern it in the dark.
The screen particularly targets players with its frequency of 120Hz which improves the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. Fluidity is also enhanced by AMD FreeSync Premium technology. Equivalent to NVIDIA G-Sync, it ensures that the screen and the graphics card are as synchronized as possible. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has comfortable horizontal and vertical viewing angles and offers more faithful colorimetry than the average. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more restful for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny panel and more readable in bright surroundings (ex:
Performance, autonomy of the MSI Bravo 17 A4DDR-011FR
The MSI Bravo 17 A4DDR-011FR is for those who are looking for a high-performance, large format, versatile laptop PC oriented towards games and creation.
It is capable of running many games as long as we consent to adaptations in the most greedy opus graphics resources because it is equipped with the dedicated card Radeon RX 5500M AMD Navi 7nm.
Of course, this GPU allows you to view photos and videos. It can also be used by software exploiting GPU computing power to speed up processing, such as in multimedia using Adobe Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
To reinforce fluidity in games, MSI chooses an SSD storage which reinforces reactivity compared to a hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage, for example, of game / software launches, faster starts / stops and processing, or even a faster arrival on online game cards.
An SSD is indeed remember much faster than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, less energy and silent. It is a 512 GB SSD which is on board here, a capacity which rivals hard disks but may be too fair for some.
In this case, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device is therefore an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
The heart of this gamer and creative computer is up to the task. Composed of a good amount of 16 GB RAM and an AMD Renoir Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 4800H processor, it supports the RX 5500M well in games. Above all, it delivers a global power capable of attracting demanding users.
This duo indeed guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor, particularly under demanding work in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicores, such as in video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Finally with its large format, this computer offers a comfortable format for a mainly sedentary use (ex: at home). For a 17 inch, it is still quite easy to transport because of its controlled weight and its finesse. Expect, however, that this will have an impact on the noise and heat generated by this PC in the event of heavy loads (eg games, treatments).
