The Base Model of the Razer Blade 15 will remain available to gamers
seeking additional storage capacity and connectivity, featuring the
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with Max-Q design and a CNC-milled compact
aluminum chassis, from $1,599.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series graphics provide the ultimate PC gaming
experience. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the
revolutionary RTX platform, these processors bring together real-time
ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. The new
Advanced Models of the Razer Blade 15 will be available with a choice of
RTX 2060 (6 GB GDDR6), RTX 2070 (8 GB GDDR6), or the RTX 2080 (8 GB
GDDR6), with the top two configurations using a Max-Q design to ensure
performance and user comfort within the compact Razer Blade 15 laptop.
"Gamers demand the best performance when it comes to PC graphics, and
the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 20 Series GPUs fuse the performance of next
generation shaders with real-time ray tracing and AI, blurring the line
between movies and gaming, with cinematic-quality rendering," said
Kaustubh Sanghani, general manager, GeForce OEM at NVIDIA. "Seeing this
technology available in a super compact laptop based on Max-Q design
principles, such as the new Razer Blade 15, gives users a new level of
graphics performance in a highly mobile platform."
The 15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays have 144 Hz refresh rates,
driven by the new GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs to provide precise and fast
game visuals and entertainment with full-frame fluidity and 100% sRGB
color. Creative users that demand higher resolution and a wider color
gamut can step up to a 4K (3840 x 2160) display with touchscreen
functionality and 100% Adobe (News - Alert)™ RGB color support.
Each laptop display is individually custom calibrated in production for
amazing color accuracy out-of-the-box. All models feature 4.9mm thin
bezels flanking the display, while the new Windows Hello-capable IR face
camera retains the ideal placement at the top of the screen, allowing
for easy and secure login via facial recognition. The HD Webcam is
matched with a dual-array microphone setup for streaming, video
conferencing and voice assistants.
Razer will also showcase at CES (News - Alert) two new innovative display technologies
being evaluated for the Razer Blade 15 in the future. The first showcase
is Blade 15 with a 15.6" Full HD display capable of 240 Hz refresh rates
for incredibly fluid gaming. The other Blade 15 showcase sports a 4K
OLED touch display, delivering amazing color, deep blacks, and efficient
The Razer Blade 15 currently holds the title of world's smallest
15.6-inch gaming laptop,1 with a minimal footprint and a
thinness of 0.70 inches for ultimate mobility.
The chassis is individually CNC-milled from a single aluminum block to
provide a sturdy yet lightweight design, and features a
scratch-resistant anodized black finish.
Managing heat without sacrificing performance in such a small form
factor is no easy task, but the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model utilizes
vapor chamber technology for the cooling solution instead of the
traditional heat pipes found in most gaming laptops.
Beyond cooling the CPU and GPU, the vacuum-sealed vaporized liquid helps
dissipate the heat generated from other components within thelaptop.
Ultra-thin nanoparticle material and graphite-based server grade thermal
interfaces reduce hot spots and facilitate heat transfer, while
high-performance low-noise fans push air across dual heat exchanges with
0.1mm thin fins, quickly moving heat out of the chassis and away from
The new GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs utilize GDDR6 memory, the fastest
memory in the world. To complement the increased performance provided by
the new GPUs and for extreme multitasking, Razer equips every Razer
Blade 15 model with 16 GB of DDR4-2667 MHz dual-channel system memory.
For users looking to push the performance even further, the expandable
memory slots now support the installation of Intel® XMP compatible
memory, with speeds up to 3200 MHz for increased bandwidth.
Fast PCIe SSD storage is provided with configurations up to 512 GB, with
support for up to 2 TB of storage and up to 64 GB of system memory.
"The award-winning Razer Blade 15 is an ideal device for the latest
NVIDIA Turing graphics processors, up to the GeForce RTX 2080, allowing
gamers to take their visual experiences to new levels," says Razer
Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. "Fluid, lifelike visuals are displayed
on the expansive 15.6-inch Full HD panel with refresh rates of 144Hz,
and the compact Max-Q design makes the laptop perfect for gamers
