2020 Razer Blade 15 Studio gets new 8-core Core i7 Comet Lake-H CPU and faster RAM
The original 2019 Blade 15 Studio is barely 6 months old and Razer is already preparing for a refresh. Whereas the 2019 version is based on the 2019 Blade 15 Advanced Model, the 2020 version will be based on the 2020 Blade 15 Advanced Model. All the differences between the models can be found on our table here.
The year-over-year differences include the jump from a 6-core Core i7-9750H to the new 8-core Core i7-10875H, support for USB Type-C charging, faster DDR4-2933 RAM, and a larger Shift key. Almost everything else remains the same including the per-key RGB lighting, Mercury White color, Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q GPU, and 4K OLED DCI-P3 panel. The new CPU is perhaps the most noteworthy update as professional applications or video editors tend to benefit more from additional cores than most games.
The 2020 Blade 15 Studio Edition will begin shipping today for a starting price of $4300 USD. See our review on the 2019 model here as nearly all of our comments apply on the 2020 model.
