Like every year, Razer came up with several new products at CES in Las Vegas. Among these new features, the firm presented an update to its gaming laptop: the Razer Blade 15 Advanced . The latter includes a GeForce RTX 20 series for GPUs, with an RTX 2060, an RTX 2070 Max-Q or even an RTX 2080 Max-Q.
The new graphics card family brings several improvements to older Nvidia GPUs: real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading.
The Razer Blade 15 Advanced will start at $ 2,299. It will be available from January 9 at Razer as well as at a few retailers in the United States, Canada, France, United Kingdom, Germany and China.
The laptop has a new GPU
The Razer Blade 15 Advanced comes with a GeForce RTX 20 series graphics processor, with the options:
- an RTX 2060 (6 GB)
- an RTX 2070 Max-Q (8 GB)
- an RTX 2080 Max-Q (8 GB)
Either way, the 15-inch laptop is powered by an Intel Core i7-8750H, which can be found in classic Blade 15s. Remember that this is a CPU engraved in 14 nm integrating 6 cores and 9 MB of cache. Everything works at a base frequency of 2.20 GHz and can reach 4.10 GHz in Turbo.
Several notable changes on the new version of Blade 15
The Blade 15 Advanced has two experimental display options. The first offers an LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a refresh rate of 240 Hz; while the second offers a 4K OLED touchscreen with bezels of just 4.9 millimeters on the sides.
In addition, the device is equipped with an infrared camera compatible with Windows Hello, which allows login with facial recognition. The latter sits at the top of the screen, next to an HD webcam with a dual array microphone setup.
And finally, the company has improved the cooling system of its laptop, which is very good news for users since the old Blade 15s had the annoying tendency to heat up after intensive use.
