    Based on what I'm seeing for benchmarks on another thin gaming laptop with the 3080 (Gigabyte Aero , it seems to me when even compared to the Razer 17 Pro 2070 Super Maxq, it's not a leap above in performance. The mobile 3080 is heavily modded from the desktop version and when running at the lower power needed for a laptop, it just doesn't seem that great. I'll be interested to see when they test the Razer 3080, but I'm tempering my expectations.

    It’s actually not quite thin, 17 inch is blade pro class. However it depends also thermal solution and OEM setting gpu power target that might make it looks not great compared to last gen mobile GPUs. Keep in mind that 17 blade pro has bigger cooling room and higher gpu tgp compared to other maxq laptops that put 2070maxq equals to some 2080maxq (this had tech reviewer, Jarrod tech also mentioned in one his blade pro review) with lower tgp and maybe worse cooling solution, that’s how mobile gpu performs.

    Like I said, I'll wait to see when they get their hands on one. Since there will be no max q or other designation anymore with the 3x series, you are at the mercy of the reviewers to let you know the tgp. So we're going to see benchmarks all over the place, even more than the 2x series

    There’s review from 15 base here. So you can compare how powerful is 3070 probably 80/90 watt (old naming code maxq). But keep in mind the future driver update like from nvidia or bios update from oem might also make the result different, I think it’ll be better considering from past new mobile GPUs launch.

    Yeah Media likes to make loud news, that’s how they get the money. If looking from turing there was also dozens different tgp configuration, for example only on 2060 that has no maxq design it’s three different configuration, 65 watt, 80 watt and 90 watt, with later come refresh that bump 15 watt tdp. Not mentioned 2070/80 maxq/maxP that has different tgp configuration base on cooling room on the laptop plus unique tgp like on blade pro 17 (maxq but can spike to 140 watt), and OEM bios tweak like on some Clevo and Eluktronics with their eluktroboost that fools power target resulting higher tgp (Kind bios tweak).

    Looks great! What type of cooling performance will you get?

    Tomorrow I will be getting my new Blade 15 the RTX 3070, with 144Hz QHD display. I am at the point where time feels like it’s slowing down as It gets closer.
    I thought a lot about waiting to get one of the Advanced Blades but I have already got a full size Chroma Keyboard, Naga Trinity Mouse, & Tartarus Pro from Razer so it wasn’t as big of a loss. I also decided to price out maxing the RAM to 64GB & getting two 1TB SSD, which I had the expectation of being a lot more expensive than it turned out.

    All in All, the only thing I was considering as a possible missed element was the Intel Gen 11 CPU’s that where recently announced. I want to see one in action more than had to have it now though. Now I just want to get the concept super chair with roll out display! 1st time I saw it, a lifetime of dreaming as a gamer became a reality, along with the reality I wouldn’t ever be able to afford it!

    Saw your post and i found that what you have mentioned is true and almost similar to me.

    After much thoughts and comparisons I finally placed my order on Razer Store for my Blade 15 (Base), RTX 3070, QHD to replace my battle-worn blade 15 970m (Since 2015). My old blade has served me well..

    Yes true that i am going to miss out on intel 11 gen. or the new AMD series. truth is, i do not see razer allowing a ryzen cpu on the blade due to the thunderbolt certification any time soon.

    3070 should do the trick for the foreseeable future.. Can't wait!

    So, NVidia has stated, that every Seller of RTX30XX Laptops has to give us explicit Info about the performance. Usually producers tell the TDP.

    I can't find anything on Razers Homepage yet. When do you plan to inform us?

    Received my blade 15 RTX 3070 165Hz.

    Received the following benchmark results.

    Strangely there seems to be a problem with the internal display not detecting the high refresh rate. Reaching out to support team seperately

    Thanks for posting! The GPU score looks good for a lower TDP RTX 3070 (maybe 13% better than the Blade 15 with RTX super 2070 max-q?). What settings did you have before running the benchmark or was this out of the box as-is? The Aero with the RTX 3080 hit 9646 graphics (105W TDP) as another data point.

    Out of the box with all the newest drivers that is available. System on performance mode via razer synapse. Also I ran this on native 1440p if that matters
  18. IGN posted a review of the MSI GS66 Stealth ( Their unit had the QHD 240hz screen wth G-Sync and Advanced Optimus. The same one the new Razer Blade 15 Advanced is using. They mentioned some issues which concern me:

    “It’s a good system for enhancing battery life, but it’s not without its hiccups. With integrated graphics, you’re limited to a 60Hz refresh rate, which is a noticeable drop in fluidity even when moving the mouse. I often opted to use the RTX 3080 when running on battery, but this had its own issue: if I left it on “Nvidia GPU Only” the laptop’s display would often not turn on following a reboot, forcing me to restart it a second time.”

    Can anyone confirm if this is true? With Advanced Optimus you only get 60hz running on iGPU? And if you change to dGPU only the display intermittently doesn’t come on? This would be a show stopper for me and I was considering the new Blade

    The drop to 60Hz when switched to the integrated GPU would not surprise me. From what I have seen, it is questionable if that iGPU is even capable of 240Hz @ QHD. Even if it was, that would require more power which is not what we want when in that mode of power saving. The hiccup on reboot sounds like an issue that is possibly firmware/software related and might be specific (and also likely addressable) in the MSI laptop.

    I would assume (?) that if you go to the Windows Graphics setting and select say Edge and specify to use the dGPU that you would get that while using Edge. The great thing about Advanced Optimus is suppose to be that it can dynamically switch to dGPU when needed and little to no cost.

    I have the Blade Advanced 15 with RTX 3080 and QHD on order and the Stealth review doesn't change my mind. The big selling points to me are the hope for a better productivity laptop (i.e. using on my lap, coding or browsing, on battery with good PPI for a 15.6" display, usable for 4 to 5 hours) while also being a better gaming laptop (i.e. using on desk, playing high FPS with crisp graphics, DLSS, low response time, high refresh rate, plugged into wall power).

    BTW - Since the Blade 15 supports 20V USB-C chargers with PD 3.0 I am planning to be able to take a very light-weight USB-C cable with me to plug in to convenient USB-C charging (much more convenient that having to drag power-brick with me everywhere). Doing so requires access to such chargers of course.

    BTW - What is surprising to me most in that review of the Stealth is the battery test. The reviewer is saying the Stealth with Advanced Optimus RTX 3080 and 99WH battery had *worse* battery life (5:44) as compared to the Blade with RTX 2080 Super (6:14) with 80WH battery. That is a really puzzling result.
