While we've yet to see how the Radeon RX 5500 performs in the real world, landing a laptop win like this out of the gate is a huge deal for AMD. Powered by RDNA, the Radeon RX 5500 provides up to 1.6X higher gaming performance-per-watt than current Radeon graphics cards based on the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture3.
Alpha 15's performance is enhanced by MSI proprietary Cooler Boost 5 and the 7-heatpipe fan with AMD's SmartShift Technology balances CPU and GPU cooling simultaneously.
The Radeon RX 5500 got its formal introduction yesterday, alongside a mobile variant, the 5500M.
AMD claims the RX 5500 is 37 per cent faster than Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1650 when running games like Fortnite, Apex Legends and Rainbow Six Siege at 1080p resolutions. On the other hand, the Radeon RX 5500M GPU is said to provide up to 30 percent faster performance with up to 60+ FPS in select AAA titles and up to 90+ FPS in select eSports games4. So, it makes sense for AMD to conk two birds with a single driver release.
Largest gaming display ecosystem8 - With over 950 supported monitors to choose from, gamers can enjoy stutter-free, tear-free gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync and Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology10.
Something to look forward to: If you're in the market for a decent graphics card but don't want to join the Green Team, AMD has you covered pretty well as of late.
For Malaysia, the Alpha 15 apparently comes standard with 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM, 512GB NVMe PCIe solid state drive, and per-key RGB keyboard designed by SteelSeries.
AMD launched the Radeon RX 5700 and 5700XT earlier this year with impressively competitive prices against Nvidia's mid-tier offerings.
Well at least that's the way AMD is presenting the card without mentioning pricing, because at launch it's going to be available inside of prebuilt gaming PCs.
