    My 2017 Blade is definitely getting an upgrade! Wish I could preorder!

    I'll just keep the laptop I bought with a GTX 1060 6GB that cost me $1050. I prefer 1080p over 4K, so this would be overall on both price and visual specs.

    1060 laptop still fine for FHD games, no need to buy a Blade if it full fills your need. 1060 isn’t enough for me because I play 1440p, 1070 Blade is still fine for that so maybe i keep my Blade 15 that cost me €2300;)

    I wouldn’t mind buying the blade. But it’s RGB and other elements jack up the price for a reason. It’s cool stuff but then again, buying it used I’m not sure that’s a good idea

    According to this nvidia mentioned performance bump on mobile gpu is 20% (there’s possible lower), and note that you’ll have also to face some possibility issues with new architecture on a laptop, it’s not only advantages.
    DGPU is soldered but you can use egpu for upgrading to Rtx not full performance like on direct mobo but on some cases it out performs 1070 maxq. I play since BFV dxr Update already RT on my Blade, it’s on;)

    Thanks but I use my Blade on my a laptop pillow on the sofa. So egpu is not really an option. But thanks anyway.

    Yeah that things happen on nowadays Tech. You can costumize it with individual colors to help remembering like me, this is from my previous Blade 14, after getting used to, I can remember those keys placement even in very dark room, sometimes I don’t even look at keyboard.

  15. If the blade has a 1440p 144hz screen, I'll not even hesitate to get one.
    But now, I have to choose between high resolution and high refresh rate.
    Not to mention, the High-resolution panel is not even purchasable in many countries.

    Personally, 1440p and 4k are the same on a 15-inch screen, but I can notice the difference when it comes down to 1080p.

    Hey, any idea if this new razer blade is going to offer gsync ?
    That oled version looks sexy. May he by next version of gpu and cpu we will have 4k 120htz oled screen.
    I would have love a 1080 or 1440 oled for this version at 120 htz.
    The 4k oled with 60htz if there is no gsync not sure even the 2080 will allow to really use it.

    It’s great idea, since now there’s already g sync optimus switching technology, back in old days, g sync is useless for portable gaming laptop for its battery killer, and couldn’t be used with optimus. G sync will also made Blade 15 capable doing 3 Monitor gaming like Project Valerie (optimus won’t let internal screen extending with external monitor on nvidia surround view).
  18. I would realy want to have if Ryzen 7 3700 with vega 20 existed .

    From Ryzen mobile cpu, AMD only has quad core on their high end model right? So it’s still maybe stealth 2019 ultrabook performance class. And Vega 20 on MacBook Pro 2018 can’t also reach mobile gtx1060 performance on Blade 14 2017 or even late 2016.

    Too bad that the 2070 and 2080 will be MaxQ.
