The new Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (whoever named this should drop the ‘Model’, though) sports the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX-series graphics processors, as well as the hexa-core Intel Core i7-8750H paired with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. There’s also the 15.6-inch 1080p Full HD, 144Hz refresh rate display.
The new Blade also comes with 4.9mm thin bezels with a IR facecam that is Windows Hello-compatible. It also has a vapour-chamber technology in replacement of the traditional heat-sinking pipes which allows to dissipate heat not only from the CPU and GPU but also from the other parts of the machine.
Connectivity-wise, the new Razer Blade 15 includes Thunderbolt 3, 3.5mm combo jack, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, and three USB 3.1 ports.
There’s also a precision-glass touchpad with gesture support as well as dual front-firing speakers with Dolby Atmos technology built-in.
Razer claims that the chassis of this new model is CNC-milled from a single aluminum block.
While the base model of the Blade 15 would still sport Nvidia’s last-gen GTX 1060 GPU with Max-Q design, the new Blade 15 Advanced Model would be available with three options, from RTX 2060 (6GB GDDR6), RTX 2070 (8GB GDDR6), and the RTX 2080 (8GB GDDR6) options – with the latter two configurations based on Nvidia’s Max-Q design.
The Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model starts at $2,299 and will be available starting January 29 in the US, Canada, France, UK, Germany, and China. The base model of the Razer Blade 15 with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, on the other hand, is currently available with a starting price of $1,599.
