MSI's new Alpha 15 gaming laptop packs AMD's new Radeon RX 5500M with 4GB of GDDR6, and is teamed with the Ryzen 7 3750H processor -- both of which are made on the 7nm process. MSI provides two options with screens: a 15.6-inch 1080p 144Hz IPS-based panel with FreeSync tech, or a 15.6-inch 120Hz IPS panel with FreeSync.

Inside, the Alpha 15 gaming notebook is cooled by a 7-heat pipe Cooler Boost 5 thermal outfit, compatible with AMD's own SmartShift technology. This technology cools both the CPU and GPU simultaneously, which should see for low temps while under gaming loads.

The base models come with 8GB of RAM and 16GB of RAM at $999 and $1099, with storage options in the M.2 combo slot which takes a SATA-based drive or PCIe 3.0-based SSD, while providing another spot for a larger 2.5-inch storage drive for all those games that just don't get smaller as the days go past.
