Razer updates Blade 15 gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics

Key Highlights:

  • Razer launches upgraded versions of its gaming laptop, the Blade 15
  • The Advanced variants of the laptop get NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs
  • The Base variant sticks to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU but gets more storage options

 

Razer, the lifestyle gaming laptop brand, has updated the Blade 15 that was launched in May last year. Showcasing its upgraded models at this year’s CES in Las Vegas, Razer is employing NVIDIA’s latest generation of graphics cards in its laptops. The Advanced variants of the Blade 15 comes with a choice of GPUs including the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (with 6GB GDDR6 RAM), RTX 2070 (with 8GB GDDR6 RAM), and the RTX 2080 (with 8GB GDDR6 RAM). The top two configurations of the Blade 15 come with Max-Q Design versions of the GPU to be more compact.

“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 Advanced variants of the Blade 15 feature a 15.6-inch Full HD display, while a 4K touchscreen is an option. The display has a refresh rate of 144Hz. The Advanced variants also feature a single solid-state drive and a per-key customisable RGB lighting option. On the downside they lose out on Gigabit ethernet because they’re 17.8 millimetres in thickness.

Catering to the affordable gaming audience, the Base variant of the Blade 15 comes with a GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with Max-Q Design and more storage. The Base variant has a dual solid-state drive option, single-colour lighting option on its keyboard, and Gigabit ethernet. At 19.9 millimetres, it’s a little thicker than the Advanced variants. The Base variant too comes with a 15.6-inch Full HD display with a refresh rate of 144Hz.

The Base variant of the upgraded Blade 15 starts at a price of $1,599 (Rs 1,11,395 approx) while the Advanced variants start at much higher $2,299 (Rs 1,60,137 approx) and go up to $2,999 (Rs 2,08,895 approx). There’s no word out on when these upgraded models will go on sale in India. At the moment, Razer laptops can only be bought and shipped to India from the Amazon USA site.
