MSI Bravo 15 – You Probably Shouldn’t Buy This Gaming Laptop
Msis, Bravo 15 is one of the few all AMD gaming laptops available with both 6 core Ryzen processor and Radeon RX 5500M graphics. But there are some important issues you need to know about before. Considering it. Its got a black brushed metallic finish both on the lid and interior., Its a little cheap feeling, but no sharp corners or edges and its solid enough. MSI lists the weight as 1.96kg, though mine was under this at around 4.2lb, Então, with the 180w power. Brick and cables were looking at under 2.7kg or 5.9lb total.. The size is decent for a 15 gaming laptop its a bit thinner than the lower specced Nitro 5. Eu testei recentemente. Tem um 15.6 1080p 120Hz display with a 48Hz to 120Hz FreeSync range, mas isso é. The only good news for the screen. – I measured the screens average grey to grey response time at 22.3ms, not great when a 120Hz panel needs an 8.33ms response time for all transitions to occur within the refresh window., Its one of the slower results when we compare it Against other laptops, but similar to a number of other, more budget friendly gaming laptops, Testei a tela com o Spyder 5 e tem 61 de sRGB 43 do NTSC 45 de AdobeRGB e 45 de DCI P3. So not great for content creation.. Meu painel foi 300 nits em 100 Brilho, which is reasonable, and the contrast ratio was over 10001, which is good.. O sangramento da luz das costas não foi tão ruim..
In my unit I didnt notice the small imperfections down the bottom when viewing darker content, mas isso vai variar entre os painéis. MSI. Also offers the Bravo 15, with a 144Hz panel, so expect different results with that. Há, a 720p camera above the display no Windows, Olá, Apoio.. This is what the camera and microphone look and sound like on the MSI. Bravo 15.. Isto é o que parece digitar no teclado, and this is what it sounds like if we set the fan to full speed. Então você ainda pode me ouvir. Ok, sobre o barulho do ventilador., The keyboard has a single zone of red backlighting, que ilumina todas as teclas e funções de chave secundárias.. Existem 3 levels of key brightness or you can turn it off with the function and page up and down keys.. I didnt personally like typing on it, but that will probably be subjective.. It just felt like there was no key travel and the key presses dont push down far heres how it sounds to give you an idea of what to expect.. The power button is at least separate from the keyboard to avoid accidental mispresses.. The precision touchpad has a smooth plastic finish and clicks down anywhere, but the front has a sort of wobble to it and can be pushed down a bit prior to actually triggering a click which was annoying at times.. Fingerprints and dirt show up extremely easily on the shiny black finish, mas como uma superfície lisa, its easy enough to clean with a microfiber cloth.
. A distribuição de peso foi boa, allowing for one finger opening and the screen goes a fair bit. Voltar. Theres a fair bit of keyboard flex when pushing down hard, but it felt fine during normal use and there was less lid flex than say. O Presságio 15 or Legion 5. À esquerda. Weve tem uma ventilação de escape de ar, the power input and HDMI 2.0 output.. The right has the rest of the IO, including 3.5mm, tomada combo áudio, dois USB 3.2 Tipo Gen1, Um porto, dois USB 3.2 Gen1 Type C ports, Gigabit, ethernet and kensington, Bloqueio, so a fair bit to get in the way of your mouse. If youre right, handed., The Type C ports cannot be used to charge the machine and they dont provide DisplayPort out, but the HDMI port connects directly to the 5500M graphics.. A parte de trás tem saídas de ar para os cantos. While the front is just some black grooved plastic.. Underneath has air ventilation holes above the M.2 slots and in the center towards the back, but there arent any intakes directly above the fans. Ainda, Embora, more intakes compared to the ASUS TUF A15., Entrar envolve a remoção 12 Parafusos da cabeça de Phillips, Então, once inside weve got the battery down the front along with two M.2 storage slots and one for the WiFi 6 Cartão.. There are two memory slots, but mine, only shipped with single channel, which is unfortunate as it leaves performance on the table.. I did all my testing with dual channel for best results and I definitely suggest upgrading.
. The two speakers are on the left and right sides towards the front. They didnt sound as bad compared to other budget friendly MSI laptops, Ive tested in the past Id say theyre above average, with a little bass and the latencymon results were looking decent.. The Bravo 15 é alimentado por um 3 bateria celular 51Wh. Ive testou com a iluminação do teclado fora de aplicativos de fundo, desativado e tela em 50 Brilho.. Curiosamente, the battery life was actually more than half an hour longer than the Legion 5. With larger battery in the YouTube playback test., The game was only able to run at 24 FPS on battery and it dipped to unusable levels with 9 charge left.. You can also set the charge threshold in software. Vamos conferir as térmicas em seguida. The MSI Dragon Center software lets you pick between three performance modes, qual, do mais baixo para o mais alto, são silenciosos, equilibrado e extremo. Desempenho. Youve got to select user mode. If you want to enable cooler boost to max out the fan speed, otherwise you can also pick advanced and get some customization.. The idle temperatures were good with a 21 grau Celsius, testes de estresse quarto foram feitos com o teste de estresse da CPU Aida64, com estresse, CPU só verificado e a corrida de benchmark da GPU Heaven. Ao mesmo tempo, enquanto o jogo foi testado jogando, Cuidado com cães, 2. Temperatures were on the hotter side, with the stress test going thermal throttling in balanced and extreme modes at around 94 graus, Celsius.
Maxing, the fan out with cooler boost lowered the gaming temps a bit but Made no difference to the CPU in the stress test, then using a cooling pad helped a bit more.. Estas são as velocidades do relógio para os mesmos testes. The GPU speeds in silent mode were super low, and this made playing games unusable, so I dont suggest using it. If you need to use the 5500M graphics., The speeds were otherwise not too different. In balanced and extreme modes, the CPU performance rose a bit as cooling improved as thermals were the limit in balanced mode.. Despite the throttling, Embora, were not too far behind the 4.0GHz boost clock of the 4600H., The power level from the 5500M in green seemed to vary. Curiosamente, it was lower when actually running the game and it seemed to drop with the stress tests running as the processor power increased. Heres. Como o desempenho da CPU só parece no Cinebench com a GPU agora ociosa, então não é realmente uma diferença notável para o desempenho único núcleo, but multicore performance was affected and Ryzen controller only gave less than a 1 Aumentar. It’s not doing great when compared to other 4600H laptops the single Core result is about the same, but the multicore score is below the other options, mas hey. It is still beating more expensive Intel laptops. When idling the keyboard was around the low 30 ponto Celsius grau que é bastante normal. With the stress tests running in the lowest silent mode, its only a little warmer.
But if you recall, GPU performance is very low.: Balanced mode gets to the mid 40s in the center. Estava quente., but not hot.. Extreme mode was similar. The left side feels hotter than the right as the left has the side. Air exhaust. Coolerboost lowered the temps. A little the hottest point is up the back, but you dont need to touch there.. Vamos ouvir o barulho dos fãs.. I wasnt able to hear the fans when idling in silent mode and its still quiet in silent mode with the stress tests running but again, not usable in GPU. Heavy tasks due to power, limits., Balanced and extreme modes were about the same and similar to many other gaming laptops. Then you might want some headphones for coolerboost. Now lets check out how well the Bravo 15 se apresenta em jogos e ver como ele se compara com outros laptops. Testado ive, Campo de batalha 5 no modo campanha em configurações ultra, and the Bravo 15 é destacado em vermelho.. This is only the second 5500M laptop Ive ever tested and despite the GPU reporting as running at a lower power limit compared to MSIs Alpha 15. The Bravo is a fair bit ahead of the Alpha, probably due to the CPU difference. Como sabemos, the newer Zen2 options obliterate the older 3750H., Either way the 5500M still seems to sit in between the 1650 e 1660 Ti options on the Nvidia side.. Estes são os resultados de Far Cry 5 com configurações ultra no embutido em benchmark.
. This test depends more on the processor, which probably explains why the Alpha 15, with the same 5500M graphics, is further below now.. Curiosamente, the 5600M in the Dell G5 SE was just above it with the same processor. Suponho que, due to the GPU mattering a bit less in this test. Novamente, Embora, the Bravo 15s 5500M is in between the Nvidia, 1650 e 1660 Ti options. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was also tested with the games benchmark tool with the highest setting preset. The 5600M. In the G5 is now 27 ahead of the 5500M, as this is a heavier GPU test. Let me know if youd be interested in a video comparing those two graphics options.. The Bravo was just three frames ahead of the Alpha with the same GPU, so that CPU difference matters a bit less here compared to Far Cry 5, at least at these higher setting, Níveis. Ive also tested the Bravo 15 dentro 20 jogos em tudo. Definir níveis verificar o cartão no canto superior direito ou link na descrição. Se você quiser mais benchmarks. Agora, as ferramentas de benchmarking, Testado ive, Vale do Céu e Superposição da Unigine, as well as Firestrike and Timespy from 3DMark just pause. O vídeo, se você quiser um olhar detalhado para esses resultados. Ive, usou o Adobe Premiere para exportar um dos meus vídeos de revisão de laptop em 4K.. This is one of the slowest results out of all laptops tested, only a little faster than MSIs alpha 15, with the same 5500M GPU, but weaker processor.
, Based on the 5600M in the G5 being the next in line. It seems that Premiere, isnt well optimized for Radeon graphics., Ive também testou Premiere, mas com o benchmark de sistemas Puget. Nestes testes, a higher score is better and again. The Bravo is on the lower side, though it was interesting that its ahead of the G5 SE with the same CPU but higher GPU., Os resultados foram similares no Adobe Photoshop. This tends to be more of a CPU focussed test, Embora, compared to many Nvidia options. With the same 4600H, the Bravo 15 is still on. The lower side. DaVinci Resolve is more GPU heavy and was again on the lower side and below the Nvidia GTX 1650 Opções, despite the 5500M doing better in gaming, so yeah for content, creator workloads, the Radeon graphics dont appear to do as well at the moment. Ive. Also tested SPECviewperf, que testa várias cargas de trabalho profissionais 3D. Ive used Crystal disk mark to test the 512gb NVMe M.2 SSD and the speeds were fair but not amazing. Para preços atualizados, verifique os links na descrição, pois os preços mudarão com o tempo. At the time of Recording in the US its available for around 950 USD lets summarise the good and the bad parts of the Bravo 15 to help you decide if this is worth it.. The 5500M in the Bravo performs in between Nvidia GTX, 1650 e 1660 Ti graphics in games. So medium to high settings in AAA games is needed for 60 FPS at 1080p.
. The 5500M wasnt great outside of gaming in content. Cargas de trabalho dos criadores, Embora, and the screen was also subpar in that regard with low colour, Gama. Screen response time was also low, which results in some ghosting, though brightness was average. Contrast was good and it does have FreeSync to remove tearing between 48Hz and 120Hz.. Cpu. Only performance was also a little weaker compared to other 4600H laptops out there, and this was all while running on the hotter side, with some thermal throttling under worst case stress test. But at least the clock speeds being reached were still decent. Então, in my case, the workloads tested werent throttling lots.. The touchpad has the issue noted with the clicks. The keyboard didnt have enough travel for me, but wasnt that bad and the battery life was quite good, considering the size of the battery.. Honestamente, if it was my money, Id save up an extra 50 and get the Lenovo Legion 5 with 4800H and 1660 Ti, it blows the Bravo 15 away in pretty much every regard, except for battery life for just 5 mais dinheiro. But let me know what models you want to see me. Compare the Bravo with in future. Now for more information on our sponsor Squarespace. By now I’m sure.
