[Specs and Info] MSI Alpha 15 and Alpha 17 (B5Ex) – A fully “Red” laptop using Zen 3 and RDNA 2

Weapons, animals, and now Greek letters. We wonder what MSI will use for their next naming scheme. The laptops that we will talk about today are pretty interesting, in the fact that they are entirely powered by AMD hardware.

We already saw that previously with the ROG Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition, which harnessed the power of Zen 3 and RDNA 2. Now, MSI is joining in on the fun by introducing the MSI Alpha 15 ad Alpha 17, two laptops that are very similar and only use AMD hardware.

Today we are giving you a quick overview of the MSI Alpha 15 and Alpha 17 (B5Ex).

Design

You’re getting a pretty gamer-y looking laptop, which wasn’t the case with previous MSI devices, such as the Stealth, Rider, and Leopard laptops. you get a lid with some pretty aggressive body lines, along with sharp edges and rounded corners. There is also the MSI Eagle logo, which is the third one in their arsenal, next to the dragon badge and the wordmark. It has red-eye, which is a nice touch. The build features premium materials, with the whole laptop being made of metal. In terms of weight and height, the Alpha 15 stops the scales at 2.35 kg, 200 grams lighter than the Alpha 17, while also being 0.3 mm thinner.

Display

Both laptops use a similar screen, with either a 15.6-inch or a 17.3-inch 144Hz Full HD IPS panel.

Specifications and features

The laptops offer a single CPU and GPU choice. The processor of choice is the Zen 3-based Ryzen 7 5800H. This CPU is a beast for productivity and gaming, currently sitting at #2 in our Top Laptop CPU Ranking. For the graphics, you get the RX 6600M, which uses the RDNA2 architecture. An entirely AMD-powered laptop is definitely a gamble, but we like the stakes, and so does MSI.

Features-wise, you get an RGB backlit keyboard and stereo speakers, which are provided by Nahimic Audio.
