Razer Refreshes Blade 15 Gaming Laptop With 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPUs And NVIDIA GeForce RTX Super GPUs

Razer has unveiled the latest update to the Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop for what it calls "a truly no-compromises solution."

Much like the flurry announcements from other gaming laptop manufacturers, Razer's latest offering centers heavily on the freshly released 10th-gen Intel CPUs. The two available models include a Core i7 variant, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX Super GPU, and displays with a refresh rate up to a staggering 300 Hz.

Razer has two models on offer - a base model and an advanced model, as they are being called. For both models, Razer has updated the keyboard layout, installed a new I/O, while keeping the series' signature aluminum chassis.

The base model features a six-core Intel Core i7-10750H with six cores, 12 threads, 2.6 GHz base clock speed, 5.0 GHz boost, and 12 MB cache.

On the GPU side, you can choose from either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 TI, GeForce RTX 2060, or GeForce RTX 2070. Memory-wise, the base model includes 16 GB of dual-channel 2933 MHz DDR4. For the SSD, Razer is offering either a 256 GB or 512 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0x4.

The base model ships with a 144 Hz Full HD display with 100% sRGB, 16:9 aspect ratio, or a 4K OLED with 100% DCI-P3, 1 ms response time, and 16:9 aspect ratio.

We're looking at one Thunderbolt 3, two USB 3.1 Gen 1, one USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, and HDMI 2.0B when it comes to connectivity.

The advanced model, on the other hand, ups the CPU to an Intel Core i7-10875H with eight cores, sixteen threads, 2.3 GHz base clock speed, 5.1 GHz boost, and 16 MB cache. GPU options include a GeForce RTX 2070 Super or a GeForce RTX 2080 Super.

It is available with either a Full HD TFT-LCD with a 300 Hz refresh rate, 100% sRGB, and 16:9 aspect ratio, or a 4K OLED Touch with 100% DCI-P3, 1 ms response time, and 16:9 aspect ratio.

The advanced model features 16 GB of dual-channel 2933 MHz DDR4. The SSD is available with a capacity of either 512 GB or 1 TB.

Connectivity-wise, the advanced model has a Thunderbolt 3 with support for USB-C chargers up to 20 V, SD Card Readers, two USB 3.2 Gen 2, one USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, and HDMI 2.0B.

The new Razer Blade 15 will be available with prices starting at $1,599.99 and $1,799.99, depending on the model. Razer says it will be available from May on its website and via select retailers in North America.
