MSI Alpha 15 now offers AMD Ryzen 4000H CPUs w/ Radeon RX 5600M GPU

Till now, there was only one notebook (Dell G5 SE) that featured AMD’s Navi based RX 5600M GPU. All the rest used NVIDIA’s GTX 1650, 1650 Ti or the RTX 2060. MSI’s Alpha 15 is the second gaming notebook to include the Radeon RX 5600M, offering better than RTX 2060-level performance at a slightly lower MSRP.

It’s important to not confuse the new Alpha 15 with its predecessor which featured a Ryzen 7 3750H and a Radeon RX 5500M. As you can guess, the new variant is a massive step up on both the CPU and GPU fronts. You’re basically going from GTX 1650 levels of graphics performance to higher than an RTX 2060. The 3rd Gen Ryzen APUs are nearly thrice as faster compared to the older Picasso chips. In addition, you also get a much better battery life (4.5 hours vs 8 hours), more memory and faster NVMe based SSD storage.
