The 2020 Razer Blade 15 combines and 8-core Core i7 with an RTX 2080 SUPER. The new Razer Blade 15 has just been unveiled. Always available in two variants, they ship up to a 10th generation eight-core Core i7 and an RTX 2080 SUPER for a (very) beefy configuration.
As usual, Razer gives us new ultra efficient models and badly performing his iconic Blade 15. Again available in two versions, the device Intel team in 10th generation architecture Comet Lake (still etched according Protocol 14 nm) and the all-new Nvidia graphics cards SUPER RTX, which finally appeared on laptops while RTX 3000 will arrive on PC fixed a few months.
This unprecedented combination of components will allow players to enjoy as to creative performance increase, at least in the advanced model of the product, his little brother being limited to GPUs Nvidia GTX 16XX and RTX “non SUPER”.
An Advanced Blade 15 at the pinnacle
For its Blade 15 Advanced, Razer thus relies on an Intel Core i7-10875H processor with eight cores and whose frequencies can reach 5.1 GHz. On the GPU side, the choice is left to us between an RTX 2070 SUPER and an RTX 2080 SUPER (both benefit from the low-consumption Max-Q design), while the device benefits from 16 GB of RAM (DDR4 at 2933 MHz), a Wifi 6 chip, a maximum of 1 TB of SSD (NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4) and a connection focused in particular on a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports and a card reader SD (with UHS-III support). A novelty that could catch the eye of photographers and videographers. The product can finally count, as desired, on a 15.6-inch 1080 p 300 Hz IPS screen or a 4K OLED touch screen covering 100% of the DCI-P3 spectrum.
In its basic version, the new Blade 15 also benefits from a latest generation Intel processor, but less powerful. Here we inherit a Core i7-10750H (6 cores and 5 GHz max frequencies) coupled with 16 GB of DDR4 and old generation GPU chips (Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2060 or 2070 not SUPER). Note that oddly this model does not carry an SD card reader. Pity. Similarly, it is limited to 512 GB of SSD. On the screen side, Razer offers a choice of a 15.6-inch IPS 1080p 144 Hz panel or a non-touch 4K OLED screen.
The new Blade 15 will be launched “soon”, at a price starting at 1,799.99 euros in our latitudes. We contacted the manufacturer to find out more about the prices for high-end variants, which should gravitate between 2,500 and 3,500 euros.
