    Still a beast. Still the best. The all-new Razer Blade 15 now sports the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics to take on the most demanding games. Our flagship gaming laptop boasts a buttery-smooth 360Hz FHD display (with 240Hz QHD G-SYNC option available) in the smallest 15" RTX gaming laptop body out there. Available for pre-order at Razer.com and RazerStores near you: https://www.razer.com/gaming-laptops/razer-blade

    Guessed it right... But I am already using the RTX 2080 Super version. :frown_:

  4. Can anyone confirm if the QHD Advanced Blade 15 has G-Sync? I see mention of it on the overview page but if you view details on this model it says nothing about G-Sync.

    Really disappointed that this isn't running the latest AMD 5000 mobile chips. I have a feeling this is going to get crushed in battery and performance benchmarks by laptops that cost half as much simply because they went with AMD and Razer stubbornly stuck with Intel. I say this as someone who bought the previous top of the line razer 15 OLED RTX 2080 and was looking for more performance at less power draw. The Intel processor just sucks too much power and doesn't have the performance chops to justify it.

    I'd also like to see a QHD OLED with 100+Hz. I get that Razer is limited to what exists and that panel doesn't exist in the world. Still, would like to see it. Because once you taste gaming and computing in OLED, it's impossible to go back.
     
  7. Found my answer - maybe. According to the spec sheet, the Blade 15 Advanced QHD does have G-Sync. https://rzr.to/Razer-Blade-15-Adv-Early-2021-Spec-Sheet

    However, that same spec sheet shows the 32GB model as having two 8GB DIMM's. So either Razer has found a way for 8 x 2 to equal 32 or their spec sheet is wrong. Who knows...

    Does anyone know if the UK version has the secondary function keys backlit for the new model? (2020 UK version wasn’t backlit) You were usually able to check on the website before but there’s no way of doing that anymore as far as I’m aware.
     
  9. My main concern with this new Blade is noise. Razer has unfortunately followed Apple's insane pursuit of form over function. The early 2020 Blade with 2080 Max-Q was the first one I've ever used which didn't have that awful high-pitched whine. The reason is because they made the chassis slightly thicker to allow better cooling. I'm very worried the 3080 Max-Q will be a step backward in regards to fan noise. We'll see

    Says on the website the RTX 3080 is only running 8GB of GDDR6. other OEMs are sporting the 16GB version? anyone knows whether the listing on razer is correct?

    i think other than the noise issue, would be the heat issue.

    So Nvidia announced the mobile 3060 will support up to 12Gb and the 3080 up to 16Gb. Why do you only have 8Gb as an option even for the 3080’s? Also, will you continue to run 5 year old Intel 14nm processors that generate way too much heat or will you finally offer AMD. I was really looking forward to upgrading from my 2070 max-q system this year, but I feel like the balls being dropped. There’s potential out there, you just have to make it happen.

    As most of the laptops.It depends on the use.Find a review with your favorite game or stress test if there is to check about it,looks like its gonna be fine though.

    First 300 hz and now 360 hz, what can you play with that frequency besides CSGO in 720p?

    Do we really need 360Hz? I have a 240Hz monitor and probably wouldn't notice a difference at all.
     
  16. It's purely a marketing gimmick IMO

    Actually, I'm pretty interested in the 240 HZ QHD display on the Blade 15 Advanced. And two of the big requirements that I have on my Blade 17 Pro, dual M.2 2280 slots and an SD card reader have made their way to the Blade 15 Advanced now. This allows me to downsize from a Blade 17 Pro back to the Blade 15 Advanced, with better battery life, and still keep my 4 TB of storage. I still have some concerns about thermals (even my Blade 17 Pro (9750H) runs hot at times), but this is starting to look like the perfect machine for my use. I do have a question about the QHD display; some specs list it as 95% SRGB, and others list it as 100% SRGB. Which one is it?

    3080 on blade probably around 3070/2080ti performance so it’s possible to run 300fps plus on Minecraft, Devil my cry, valorant, Doom. Beside on Blade15 nvidia told blade 15 3080 on native FHD on these titles closing 300fps here the screenshot.

    Hardware is faster changing, next year probably 400 hertz LoL, prepare it:big_grin_:
    Nice catch, I’ll try to find.
