Versatile laptop designed to play and create the MSI Bravo 15 B5DD-095FR with 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games is powerful thanks to its 16 GB of RAM and its Hexa Core AMD Ryzen 5 Cezanne processor that accelerates processing like the Radeon RX 5500M graphics card able to run games not too greedy. With a fast 512 GB SSD storage that enhances its responsiveness, this creative gaming laptop that runs Windows 11 is equipped with a backlit keyboard or connectivity with Wi-Fi 6E ax and USB-C.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Bravo 15 B5DD-095FR
Cooled by Cooler Boost 5 technology using 2 fans, heat pipes and air outlets, this laptop has a relatively discreet gamer look with its black design with angular lines and thunderbird logo on the hull.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile gaming and creative laptop is good, including 1 USB-C, wireless modules Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or 3 USB all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit as needed which is convenient to better distinguish its keys in low light atmosphere.
To seduce gamers, the screen adopts a refresh rate of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy slab. In addition, with its 16:9 aspect ratio and Full HD definition, the screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more broadly High Definition content.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI Bravo 15 B5DD-095FR
The MSI Bravo 15 B5DD-095FR is aimed at those looking for a versatile 15-inch performance gaming and creative laptop.
It delivers solid general performance to satisfy a maximum of users because it is built around an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Hexa Core Ryzen 5 5600H processor and 16 GB of RAM.
This core will be of particular interest to creators because it guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core and 8GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in CPU and RAM intensive areas that take advantage of multi-cores, such as photo editing or video editing.
If the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable in games currently compared to a Quad Core, this heart supports very well the Radeon RX 5500M graphics card in games. In this regard, this GPU is not a lightning war but allows you to play titles not too greedy in 3D resources.
In addition, the Radeon RX 5500M accelerates processing under software that exploits GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which creatives will appreciate.
In fact, a switch is made automatically and in real time between the Radeon RX 5500M and the Radeon Vega graphics module integrated into the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core.
With both, we can obviously look at photos and videos. However, the Radeon Vega 7 is preferred to the maximum despite its modest performance because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy.
In this regard, count on about 6 hours of operation on battery in light use.
The Radeon RX 5500M is in practice solicited when it comes to performing graphics work deemed too heavy for the Radeon Vega 7, typically for gaming.
On the storage side, there is an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives with its 512 GB while being quiet, more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better responsiveness and fluidity than a simple hard disk, which implies in particular much faster game/software launches as well as processing and start/stop, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Of course in case 512 GB is too fair, we can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, in case of strong solicitations (eg treatments, games), expect that laptop oriented gamer creator heats up and is heard.
