A 300 Hz display for the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (2020)

Razer's compact 15.6-incher is packed with powerful hardware that brings all the latest games smoothly onto the matte Full HD screen (300 Hz, IPS). There's also an NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM, and a Thunderbolt 3 port.

The case of the Blade 15 hasn't changed compared to its predecessor. Razer has also opted for a classy, rather angular, black full metal case with rounded corners in the 2020 model. The minimalist design does without frills.

Inside the chassis is a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics core and a Core i7-10875H octa-core processor. The latter offers a bit more computing power than the predecessor's Coffee Lake hexa-core processor thanks to its two additional CPU cores. The CPU-GPU combination can handle all modern games, and there's no need to make any compromises regarding quality settings.

The performance of the CPU and GPU can be adjusted using the options within the Razer Synapse software. During our test, a new version of the Synapse software was released, which introduces the new "Boost" CPU performance mode. The CPU benchmark results increase slightly when using this mode.

Furthermore, changes have been made in terms of the port configuration. The Mini DisplayPort was replaced by a USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2 port. However, a DisplayPort is still available since the USB Type-C port offers the DisplayPort via USB-C functionality - Power Delivery is also supported. The three USB Type-A connections now work according to the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard as well.

While the 2019 model of the Blade 15 Advanced Model offered a screen with a maximum refresh rate of 240 Hz, the current incarnation can be equipped with a 300 Hz panel. Our test device comes with such a panel. It scores points with stable viewing angles, sufficient brightness, good contrast, quick response times, and great color reproduction. The color-space coverage is also pleasing.

Our review of the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (2020) provides more information and many benchmark results.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
