That's impressive.
Really like the aspect ratio.

Still, 3:2 is much nicer for everyday use than 16:10. After trying, never want to come back :wink_: Of course, if everyday use is not only playing games

Hmm.... I think Razer Blade 16 is also good, but Razer Blade 18 is better....

Is is true that shipping for all 16 inch laptops starts 23rd Feb now, instead of 8th Feb?

Some preorders apparently shipped today from Hongkong despite being told 22/23 February shipment, according Redditors on Razer subreddit.

Hello friends,

Razer Blade 16 is really good laptop. 💖
Congratulations Razer. Very good component in an ultra-thin case.

GPU with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090!!! 👍

But don't forget that Nvidia 40 series laptop GPUs are one decimal less than Nvidia 40 series graphics cards.
For example RTX 4090 laptop = RTX 4080 Graphics Cards.


Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 series Graphics Cards.

RTX 4090 24 Gb 16 384 CUDA Cores
RTX 4080 16 GB 9 728 CUDA Cores
RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB 7 680 CUDA Cores

I hope this informations will help you choose the right GPU for you.
I want confirmation that the switching screen has G-Sync. The information is vague just says “Ready”, the official press site seems to imply that maybe the QHD IPS screen is the one that can do G-Sync

how many sizes of blades are there now?

Make a laptop for the poor people as well, not everyone get paid in dollars or euros.

Considering the battery bloat problems and the new laptops which are expected to pack the most heat ever (175W + 50W min is no joke), the temperatures of the laptop's external body would be insanely high.

Now, batteries degrade faster if they are exposed to high temperatures. They degrade insanely FASTER if they are also ABOVE 80% whilst being at high temps. And almost all the Razer Blade users keep them plugged in.

Every other laptop manufacturer out there offers a way to limit the full battery charge. Asus, HP, Lenovo, Acer, XMG - you name it. You just set the max battery charge in % (usually it's 60/80/100%) in BIOS and/or software - and there you go, Windows instantly stops charging the battery once it reaches 60%.

This could and WILL save batteries in the future. Please ADD BATTERY MANAGEMENT TO SYNAPSE

It’s up to 175 watt tgp with dynamic boost so depends on cpu usage as well and the cpu won’t consume also the maximum tdp it depends what you’re doing, on cpu stress test maybe but on real world use case it’s rarely.

Windows gaming laptops get its performance on plugged conditioning and it’s stopped when on fully charged but I’m with you about lower percentage battery charging limitation per software for less battery wearing and better battery longevity.

About the hot cassis it’s the characteristic of cnc aluminium unibody, it acts as part of cooling system to dissipate the heat it might be hot if the heat isn’t properly dissipate like for example when users cover the bottom areas or using the laptop in place where heat is hardly dissipate like on sofa etc. This year blade 16 and 18 significantly thicker than its predecessor 15/17 so bigger cooling room so for the performance I think Razer is going to right direction, personally i prefer smaller blade because portability is more important than performance for me.

I wish they would implement this feature (battery charge limiting).

Aside from just being better overall, I use my laptop (currently a 2020 Razer 17 2080 Super) connected to the Thunderbolt 4 dock, a Super Ultrawide Monitor, and at a desk. I leave it plugged in and it causes me a lot of concern about the battery. I personally reduced this concern by installing a switch that shuts off the power to the desk - but I would much prefer the laptop have a charging cap ability like Asus. To be frank, if they had put out an Asus S17 this year, I probably would have ordered it because of this feature. I really want to purchase this years 16 or 18, but this is still causing me concern. I would greatly prefer it is Razer would implement a battery charge limit ability.

Best,
