    Replied on your thread I think from 2018 model when they released it cb15 was not even 1100, some reviewers was even under 1000. But several months ago without any tweaking I could hit over 1200 multiple runs, now it is apparently back to 1150, anyway cinebench isn’t so important to me but if it’s for you, yes it could be the Blade downside.

  2. Today Razer finally released an updated 1.04 BIOS updater which works correctly. Be advised, however, that it made my system much noisier. Fans now ramp up randomly even while sitting idle :frown_:

    Fans rump up on idle may be caused by background tasks like automatic update, download etc, did you check it on task manager which apps/ programs take a lot cpu usage.

  4. No because the only thing that changed was the BIOS. Wasn't doing this before therefore it stands to reason BIOS 1.04 is causing it

    I don’t have rtx model but on Gtx model there was also Fans rumping up on idle randomly problems, on my case first time was when just released and second was on nvidia some nvidia driver version recently, the last one once kicking on I could catch which program was bugging, nvidia container file, maybe you can check once it rumping up again.

    Hey Guys!

    I got the brand new model with i7. 9. gen CPU. Great device so far!

    The only thing I dont get is that the fans spins up when I'm starting the Razer synapse Software. Even if I set the fan speed manually to "0" in the Synapse Software, it is still cranking up the fans. I have throtteled the cpu to 1ghz with the windows energy settings (for office work). So temperature should really not be an issue - its getting cold on the keyboard :big_grin_:

    When I'm closing the Synapse Software and all the Services, the fans getting quiet.

    Someone have this issue too?

    Hey guys, has anyone run into the BSoD - VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys)? I did some reading and it seems to be a common issue with Nvidia drivers on Windows 10.

    I've encountered this twice over the last two days. I'm running the latest geforce drivers (430.64).
    what's odd is that both times this has happened, all I've been doing is browsing Chrome/watching videos with VLC and using Microsoft Word / OneNote. I don't think any of these would have caused the dedicated graphics to kick in. Everything should have been running on the integrated graphics.

    Is the latest version of Razer Blade with i7 9750h compared to the former one with i7 8750 worth paying some extra money? Are there any other benefits besides a very slighlty different CPU?

    Just born baby still need to learn a lot things updates will optimize it. I remember my Blade 15 2018 doing this as well a year ago, probably windows and Synapse just meet and start talking each other lol.
    Display, 240Hz, Oled, and finally Mercury availability in other regions outside US, like UK and Germany. Unfortunately only 2070maxq 240Hz one. Not quite sure about functional (secondary) keys backlight outside US but on website it’s apparently backlight unlike before on early 2019 rtx model when I’m not wrong.

    Indeed. I'm limping along on my busted up MBP, desperate to get a new machine but have been hanging out for the 4K OLED :'( I'm checking the store daily!

    What stinks is I waited months for the 2070+4K model to be available and as soon as It was, a 2080+4K OLED was announced. So now I’m waiting for that one. Been waiting to buy a new machine since the end of January. Wonder what they’ll announce as soon as the OLED actually starts shipping lol.

    Yes, I've got the same issue BSOD twice today. Removed the latest nvidia driver 430.64 and installed the one from the Windows Update (which is very old 417.71, but seems to be more stable). I'm on Windows 10 1903 (latest May big update).

    I'm running Razer Blade 15 Advanced Mid 2019 with 2070. Also Razer still doesn't have any working drivers published for this model on the official site. Contacted support, they said it's work in progress (current downloads are 300-500kb and will not run).

    Full crash dump analysis: https://pastebin.com/raw/Pqsg56K2 .

    Code:

    With the current stable drivers version I have a different issue. Display sometimes doesn't turn on after sleep. Laptop wakes up, shows the screen and then it becomes black. I have to make it sleep and wake again to get it working (UPDATE: FN+F4 seems to help as well).

    Also Chrome crashes because of the precision scrolling bug when you scroll with 2 fingers, reported here.

    I never had a laptop with so many issues from the start.

    Did you try dch drivers? Apparently windows 1903 push users to use it if you’ve 1903, I’m not quite sure if it’s related with your issue but usually bsod is driver related things. Try manually download recent drivers and choose dch version beside standard. Yeah I hate update because sometimes it comes not always with improvement but also bugs, especially gpu drivers.

    I'll give it a try. I installed via GeForce Experience previously.

    Windows update also installs the older version of Intel video driver and there is an update suggested by the Intel Graphics Command Center. If you try to install it, it fails with the message that this driver version was not approved by the vendor. I've forced the install by unpacking the installer and updating the driver via the Device Manager, but the new Intel driver also has issues like the display not turning on after sleep. I found that the older version from the Windows Update works the best.

    Yes I’m agree with intel driver one I’ve also issue updating it, forgot on stealth or Blade 15 though, popping up that fails massage but didn’t try further since older iGPU driver is still fine. Nvidia drivers as well last time update was because I wanted to try Ray Tracing on gtx card, if there’s no that feature I would stay with old one. In the past i had some issues by always updating newest one like in gaming crash or games doesn’t load on reading scenes. This’s also why I avoid updating windows at early stage. Seeing first if there’s another issues come with it. Reinstalling and searching drivers is quite wasting time imo. I would be happy if there’s some folder for newer and most optimized drivers on Razer Blade support page beside Original Factory driver one, that’s tested and recommended for that specific model.
