MSI, one of the best gaming brands, has just announced its latest Alpha 15 gaming laptop. Armed with the new AMD Radeon RX 5500M graphics, the Alpha 15 is the first gaming laptop to feature 7nm technology, bringing cutting-edge hardware to the mainstream. MSI even created a dedicated category and a new logo for a unique yet innovative segment. The new logo takes the form of a thunderbird with rising wings, representing strength, innovation, and prosperity. Being the first and dominant of its kind, MSI has presented the new beast with the name “Alpha”.

Making Triple-Digit Framerate More Accessible

Typically, “budget gaming” means made do with simply okay graphics and framerates. However, MSI is here to challenge that belief with the Alpha 15, proving that cutting-edge hardware doesn’t always cost a fortune. Featuring the AMD Radeon RX 5500M, the 1st 7nm gaming graphics, and Ryzen 7 processor, the Alpha 15 has made triple-digit framerates more accessible than ever. The new graphics also brings enhanced game visuals at virtually no performance cost with the new AMD FidelityFX technology.

Paired with a 15.6” 144Hz Radeon FreeSync display, gamers will be able to enjoy the smooth, tear-free, stutter-free experience within popular competitive titles like CS: GO, Dota 2, Overwatch, and more. The secret behind the performance is the exclusive Cooler Boost 5. The 7-Heatpipe cooling module has been redesigned to take full advantage of the new hardware. With full cooling capability combined, gamers can take on the intense competition at their peak.

MSI Alpha 15 7nm Notebook Specifications:

  • Up to AMD 2nd Gen. Ryzen 7 3750H processor
  • Windows 10 Home / Windows 10 Pro
  • AMD Radeon RX 5500M 4GB GDDR6 Graphics
  • 15.6" FHD (1920x1080), 144Hz IPS-Level Thin Bezel Display, support AMD Radeon FreeSync technology

  • Per-Key RGB gaming keyboard by SteelSeries (optional)

Sound is crucial to completing the immersive gaming experience. Whether gamers prefer blasting out sound through speakers or closed off in their headphones, the Alpha 15 has both aspects covered. The Giant Speaker design shines where most laptops compromise by fitting a 5x bigger speaker chamber, effectively taking up almost ¼ of the chassis, generating both higher volume and clarity. On the headphone side, the Alpha 15 also supports Hi-Res Audio for the best fidelity. In either case, gamers will be able to enjoy their battle at the fullest with both visual and audio immersion.

As a typical MSI gaming tradition, the laptop also packs ample gaming features from a powerful cooling system, per-key RGB keyboard, Giant Speaker, High-Res audio, and more. Gamers who purchase the Alpha 15 via selected channels will also be eligible for a complimentary copy of either Borderlands 3 or Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
