MSI Introduces Alpha 15: First Gaming Laptop with 7nm Based AMD Radeon RX 5500M

MSI, a world leader in gaming hardware and computing solutions, announced the new Alpha 15 gaming laptop: the world’s first gaming laptop featuring AMD Radeon RX 5500M; a 7nm gaming graphics card. Offering high-end gaming experience at an accessible price point, the Alpha 15 comes with Dynaudio’s Giant Speaker high-res sound and MSI’s proprietary Cooler Boost 5 to guarantee a more optimized gaming experience at any extreme sessions and gameplay.

Alpha 15 is packed with AMD Radeon™ RX 5500M, the first-ever 7nm gaming graphics card, a Ryzen 7 processor, and FidelityFX technology to deliver triple-digit framerates and enhanced 1080p visuals without compromising the performance. Gamers will also enjoy a smoother, tear-free and stutter-free experience thanks to the 15.6 inch, 144Hz FreeSync display.

“Consumers turn to MSI when looking to upgrade their gaming experience because we understand their needs,” said Charles Chiang, MSI’s Global CEO. “Alpha 15 offers the powerful performance that serious gamers expect from us, but at a lower price point, and gives consumers more options when looking for a laptop they can rely on. Inspired by the rising wings of a thunderbird, which represent strength, innovation and prosperity; we designed a logo for this unique category, and are excited to introduce Alpha 15, the perfect addition for gamers, and the first of its kind.”

Ready to withstand the most intense gaming sessions and projects, Alpha 15’s performance is enhanced by MSI proprietary Cooler Boost 5. The 7-heatpipe fan with AMD’s SmartShift Technology balances CPU and GPU cooling simultaneously.

Designed for gamers looking for an immersive audio experience, Alpha 15’s Dynaudio Giant Speaker has a chamber five times bigger than traditional gaming laptops. Taking up almost a quarter of the chassis, the speaker system pumps out impressive surround sound at higher volumes and with better clarity without sacrificing bass. The Alpha 15 also boasts high resolution audio for those who prefer to wear headphones.
