While the MSI Alpha 15 and Alpha 17 looks like a more traditional gaming notebook, the Delta 15 definitely has a more streamlined design that makes it both lighter and thinner, while sporting more powerful internals.
Akin to its Alpha relative, it is also powered by Zen 3 and RDNA 2, which gaming enthusiasts are very excited about. While this laptop is marketed as a gaming one, its design and portability make it very versatile, so you can actually use it as a workstation as well as a content creation machine.
MSI Delta 15 (AE5x): Full Specs
With an all-aluminum build and a carbon gray finish, this is a very sleek and good-looking laptop. The use of aluminum means that you should be pretty content with the build quality of the laptop, as it should minimize flexes, both in the lid and the base. The design is pretty flat, with chamfered edges and rounded corners. There is a hexagonal grille on the base, which houses the speakers. On the lid, you can find an MSI Eagle badge, which is located in the upper right corner. The laptop is pretty lightweight, especially for a gaming notebook, weighing 1.90 kg, while being 19 mm tall.
MSI gives you the option between two 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panels. The first one has a 144Hz refresh rate, while the second display bumps that up that to 240Hz. Further specifications about the display haven’t been specified, but we believe that the laptop will be suitable for content creation, as MSI states so in the product reveal. You can see that the bezels look to be pretty thin, which is another positive.
Specifications and features
The laptop is pretty set when it comes to performance, as it comes powered by the Ryzen 7 5800H and the RX 6700M, which use the latest technology from AMD: Zen 3 and RDNA 2.
Being that both laptops are from AMD, it allows the laptop to utilize AMD SmartShift, which can dynamically shift power from the CPU and GPU to increase performance, in regards to the task that you’re doing. The laptop also has Matrix Display technology, allowing for multiple high-resolution panels to be used simultaneously. You get an RGB backlit keyboard and Nahimic 3D Audio Stereo speakers.
