The new Razer Blade 15 is a powerful gaming laptop with an QHD OLED screen that sets it apart because it combines a 240Hz refresh rate with excellent color reproduction and 4K image quality. This combo was technically impossible not so long ago.
According to the official specifications, the 15.6-inch display can reproduce 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut (+400 NITs brightness), making it “workstation-worthy” for Creative users who don’t want any compromise in quality. Additionally, OLED inherently has perfect black levels and an infinite contrast ratio.
Typically, gamers could do without this level of color reproduction, but once you’ve grown accustomed to it, it’s nearly impossible to accept a lower-quality 240Hz display again.
The laptop is powered by the latest Intel and NVIDIA chips, “up to” the Intel Core i9-12900H and the NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti. This combo packs a formidable punch, especially if you consider the relatively small size of the computer. I’d be curious to see what the performance/Lbs would be in a full review (don’t miss our laptop reviews).
32GB of DDR5 RAM can be installed, which is a good hint that Creatives are also a potential group of customers. You can get a 1TB SSD at order time, but there’s a second M.2 slot if you want to extend the storage capacity later.
The laptop’s chassis remains very close, if not identical, to the previous generation. Razer had done a great job with the last refresh design, and there’s no reason (yet) to change something that works so well.
Display aside, this is primarily an upgrade that aligns with the latest PC component refresh cycle, and that’s always welcome. The new Razer Blade 15 should hit retail in Q4 2022 at a price of $3499.99+
