The all-new Razer Blade 15 - built for those who demand more

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today revealed the next evolution of the Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop, featuring up to an 8-core 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER GPUs, and a 300Hz display all packed into the signature black aluminium chassis. Complemented with a new keyboard layout, upgraded I/O, and abundant SSD storage, the Blade 15 gives users the power to play their best game, create their best work, and live their best life.

"The new Razer Blade 15 is simply the best laptop we have ever created," said Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President of Razer's Systems Business Unit. "We've added numerous cutting-edge features and user improvements that were requested directly from the community to make the Blade 15 more than just a great laptop for gamers, but a great laptop for everyone."

More Core Galore
The Blade 15 is equipped with the latest 10th Gen Intel Core processors, including the 8-core i7-10875H - the first 8-core processor in any Razer Blade. The new 10th Gen Intel Core processors achieve even greater levels of performance over the last generation with up to 5.1 GHz clock speeds and up to 16 MB of Intel Smart Cache. The increased core count paired with the incredibly fast Turbo Boost speed means faster compiling, lower render times, and overall higher framerates.

With the new 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processors come other welcomed upgrades including the new Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (Gig+) wireless, capable of up to 2.4 Gbps network speeds, and higher frequency 2933Mhz DDR4 memory.

Feel the GeForce
The Blade 15 is armed with the best of the best in graphics technology, with the all-new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GPU with Max-Q design. The new RTX SUPER GPU lineup features up to 25% increased performance over the original RTX GPUs, with up to 8 GB of high-bandwidth GDDR6 memory and more ray tracing cores for advanced real-time ray tracing performance and faster framerates at higher settings in today's latest games. The RTX SUPER GPUs also provide additional benefits for virtual reality and content creation where the additional performance helps reduce render times and improve graphical fidelity.

Hurtz So Good
The Blade 15 features a 15.6" Full-HD display with up to a 300Hz refresh rate for silky-smooth visuals and razor-sharp text. The display is flanked by ultra-thin bezels and topped-off with a matte finish for reduced glare.

For content creators and entertainment enthusiasts, the Blade 15 is also available with a 4K OLED display. The 4K OLED display covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and is available in both a touch and non-touch variant.

Each panel comes custom-calibrated for color accuracy, creating a rich and immersive experience, whether practicing on the road for the next big game or binging streams and chilling.

A Cut Above the Rest
The all-new Blade 15 with Windows 10 is the most powerful and feature-complete Razer Blade ever - combining the latest hardware with an ultra-compact design and refining it with meaningful upgrades including a refreshed keyboard, improved I/O, and increased storage options.

The refreshed keyboard features an extended right shift key and half-height directional keys paired with n-key rollover and anti-ghosting technology for more accurate typing. Powered by Razer Synapse 3, the keyboard is fully customizable with Razer Chroma RGB lighting covering a wide spectrum of 16.8 million colors and unique lighting effects.

Lining the sides is an abundance of connectivity options including USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, a USB Type-C port and a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port. Select models of Blade 15 support charging via the USB Type-C ports with a 20 V USB-C charger, for emergency situations, and a blazing-fast UHS-III SD card reader, for those needing to quickly move work from one device to another.

The all-new Blade 15 redefines the game by combining power, portability and functionality into a truly no-compromises solution.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY
The all-new Razer Blade 15 will start at $1,599.99 USD / 1,799.99€ MSRP and will be available starting in May at Razer.com and through select retailers in the United States and Canada. The Razer Blade 15 will come soon to Razer.com and select retailers in Europe, China, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.

1800 bucks for this hot headed POS that is going to be dead in two years? Does Razer provide free stickers saying 'Throttle King'?

NOTY. I'd rather pay 2K for something along the lines of a desktop replacement, as we saw the other day with the XMG model. Yes, we know its not as portable as this one... But at least it makes some kind of sense when you spend this kind of money.

Yeah, and their business plan was for customer support being flooded with constant abuses why the laptop crashed when gaming.

Love my 2018 Blade but the specs on this seem quite underwhelming in light of the latest AMD release. Rerelease with the AMD chip and a 2070-max-q and then have it $500 off from the MS store like my last one and i’ll consider it lol.

I have the mid 2019 model with 9750h and 2080.

It's a beast and the temps are actually very good.

This will bring optical keyboard, 2 more cores, 10% more gpu power, a 144hz 4k OLED which can be 4-1 pixel binned to 1080p when gaming in demanding games.

Looking forward to gorilla glass over the screen too. 1080p locked at 144hz on a lightning fast response time OLED will be something else. Last OLED i had was only 60hz and still felt like 90 due to the response time.

Also nice they're including 2933mhz ram. I bought a 3200/15 kit for my blade but it wasn't stable, so had to upgrade to 2666/15 instead.

It's a shame they're swapping one of the 3 type A ports for an SD card reader. They're ditching the mini display port in favor of just the thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 2.1 port.

Sucks they're going with super instead of ampere, due to the delay. But Turing is still the best around so.

There are still 3 Type A ports.
HDMI 2.1 is not within the featureset of this laptop, or any computer so far.
Optical Keyboard is annoyingly AWOL at this point.

If it's built for those that demand more, then I demand an AMD Processor.
Or perhaps the title refers to Intel demanding only their chips are used? :rolleyes:

I have to disagree. "More" would be larger screen, better cooling for those performance parts, multiple storage options and more ports.

"The best laptop we've ever created" they say as they take the money under the table from intel and lumber these things with 2015's power-hungry 14nm Skylake technology, riddled with security holes and still needing more performance-sapping security patches per quarter than AMD has needed in the last three years.
