No RTX? No Problem — Razer Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti Base Model Laptop Review

Faster than any other Blade 15 GTX laptop. The GTX 1660 Ti is only marginally slower than the RTX 2060 in raw GPU horsepower while retailing for hundreds less and it manages to outperform the fastest Blade 15 Pascal configuration. Some hidden drawbacks like the slightly less accurate display and slower CPU performance detract only little from the overall experience.

When Razer refreshed its Blade 15 series earlier this year, fans had the option between RTX 2060, RTX 2070 Max-Q, or RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics. It wasn't until a few months later that Nvidia launched the less expensive mobile GTX 1660 Ti for gamers who wanted the benefits of Turing without the fancy RT or DLSS features.

The latest Blade 15 configuration comes equipped with the GTX 1660 Ti to lower the barrier of entry for users on tighter budgets. Whereas the least expensive SKU used to be the RTX 2060 configuration for $2000, the new GTX 1660 Ti configuration is $400 less while sporting the exact same ports, RAM, and CPU as its pricier RTX siblings. Its display, however, will use a slower 60 Hz panel with an option to upgrade to 144 Hz.

As explained here, Blade 15 laptops come in slightly different thicknesses depending on the SKU. The GTX 1660 Ti chassis is the "Base Model" instead of the "Advanced Model" meaning that it is the thicker version with a different set of features as we will detail below.

The 15.6-inch Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti competes directly against other mid-range to high-end ultrathin gaming laptops like the MSI GS65, Aorus 15, Asus Zephyrus S GX531, Lenovo Legion Y740-15, Alienware m15 R2, and the HP Omen X 2S 15. The Dell XPS 15 and Gigabyte Aero 15 can also be seen as alternatives since Razer wants to target content creators and professionals as well. We recommend checking out our existing review on the Blade 15 GTX 1060 Max-Q to learn more about the physical features of the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti since they share the same chassis.

Case

All Blade 15 laptops thus far share the same footprint but with different thicknesses depending on the configuration. This particular SKU shares the same Base Model chassis as the Blade 15 RTX 2060 or Blade 15 GTX 1060 Max-Q instead of the thinner Advanced Model chassis of the Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q or Blade 15 RTX 2080 Max-Q. The Base Model and Advanced Model designs are nearly identical save for some notable differences as listed here:

  • Base Model includes single-zone RGB lighting only instead of per-key RGB
  • Base Model is slightly thicker by 2.1 mm (17.8 mm vs. 19.9 mm)
  • Base Model integrates gigabit RJ-45 and a 2.5-inch SATA III bay
  • Base Model comes with a 200 W AC adapter instead of 230 W
  • Battery capacity is smaller on the Base Model (65 Wh vs. 80 Wh)
  • No IR camera for Base Model
  • No vapor chamber cooler for Base Model
  • 144 Hz IPS is optional for Base Model

Connectivity

The images below compare the thicker Base Model Blade 15 GTX 1060 Max-Q (bottom) to the thinner Advanced Model Blade 15 RTX 2080 Max-Q (top). The Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti is exactly the same as the Blade 15 GTX 1060 Max-Q except that its AC adapter port has changed to match the one on the Blade 15 RTX 2080 Max-Q. In other words, the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti AC adapter is compatible across all Blade 15 Turing laptops while being incompatible with last generation Blade 15 Pascal laptops.

Warranty

The standard one-year limited warranty applies with the option to extend to three years for an additional $250. This is pricier than what Dell, HP, or Lenovo offer for their gaming laptops likely because they benefit from larger economies of scale than Razer.

Display

We had anticipated the 144 Hz panel on our Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti to be the same 144 Hz LG Philips panel as found on our Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q, but this is not the case. Instead, the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti shares the same BOE NV156FHM-N4K IPS panel as found on the Acer Predator Triton 500. Characteristics like contrast ratio, color coverage, brightness, and response times are therefore slightly different between the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti and Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q. They're thankfully marginal and so most users won't even notice that Razer has swapped panel providers, but this is noteworthy nonetheless.

An interesting find is that a pulse-width modulation of 200 Hz is now present on all brightness levels up to 99 percent whereas this phenomenon is almost completely absent on the Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q and 2080 Max-Q SKUs. Users sensitive to onscreen flickering may want to avoid this GTX 1660 Ti SKU as a result.

Uneven backlight bleeding is present and just barely noticeable on our test unit. It's not enough to be distracting during regular use or video playback.

* ... smaller is better

Color space is actually slightly narrower than on both the Sharp and LG Philips panels of the Blade 15 RTX 2080 Max-Q and Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q, respectively, at 91 percent sRGB. This has no major implications on the actual gaming experience of the laptop.

The panel is not as well calibrated as the displays of the pricier RTX options. Most notably, color temperature is slightly cooler than it should be at almost 7100K and so the average DeltaE values for grayscale and colors are impacted. Our calibration attempt addresses these shortcomings as shown by the Calman results below.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
10 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 200 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 200 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 200 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9259 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility and viewing angles are similar to other Blade 15 IPS SKUs since maximum brightness and contrast ratios are not all that different between them. You'll want to stay under shade whenever possible or colors will become washed out.

Performance

LatencyMon
LatencyMon

Unlike Asus or MSI who tend to offer a very wide range of CPU options for the same chassis, Razer's approach is more streamlined. All current Blade 15 SKUs ship with the same Core i7-9750H CPU with no Core i5 or Core i9 alternatives. A Core i9 option could have potentially made it easier to reach very high frame rate targets, but the Core i7 is a more balanced option given the GTX 1660 Ti GPU.

Nvidia Optimus comes standard across all SKUs and so G-Sync has been omitted. LatencyMon shows no DPC latency issues even with wireless enabled.

Processor

We always say that just because two laptops share the same CPU, their performances may not be the same. In this case, the Core i7-9750H in the Blade 15 RTX 2080 Max-Q is about 15 percent faster than the Core i7-9750H in our Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti according to CineBench R15 Multi-Thread. The pricier RTX 2080 Max-Q SKU is able to maintain its CPU lead over our GTX 1660 Ti SKU even after extended periods of stress.

Perhaps the more disappointing aspect is that the CPU in our test unit is 18 percent slower than the average Core i7-9750H in our database taken from 43 other laptops. While raw performance is still faster than the Core i5-8300H, i5-9300H or older i7-7700HQ, we know that the i7-9750H in the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti is capable of much more based on what we've experienced on other laptops with this same processor.

Our scores below were recorded with Razer's Creator Mode active. Running on Gaming Mode results in even slower CPU performance as shown by these CineBench screenshots.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-9750H for more technical information and benchmarks.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are consistently below average when compared to other laptops equipped with the same i7-9750H CPU and GTX 1660 Ti GPU. We suspect that the poor CineBench results above have attributed to the lower PCMark numbers.

Storage Devices

All Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17 configurations thus far ship with Samsung SSDs in contrast to most other OEMs where it can be difficult to know what drive you're going to get. The Dell Alienware series, for example, ships with drives from Lite-On, Toshiba, SK Hynix, and Samsung.

As mentioned earlier, the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti includes a secondary 2.5-inch SATA III bay that's missing on the thinner Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q and RTX 2080 Max-Q SKUs. This is especially useful for cost-conscious users because investing in a 2 TB HDD is far cheaper than a 2 TB M.2 SSD. The 1 TB Seagate HDD in our unit returns an average transfer rate of 101 MB/s which is excellent for a 5400 drive.

GPU Performance

Unlike the under-performing CPU, the GTX 1660 Ti GPU is performing where we expect it to be at within 5 percent of the average mobile GTX 1660 Ti in our database. Users can expect 40 to 50 percent faster performance than the last generation Blade 14 GTX 1060 and 50 to 60 percent faster performance than the mobile GTX 1650. The desktop GTX 1660 Ti is still about 10 to 15 percent faster than our mobile variant.

Keep in mind that the mobile RTX 2060 is only about 10 percent faster than our GTX 1660 Ti. If you're not interested in any RTX specific features, then the Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti can offer higher performance-per-dollar than the Blade 15 RTX 2060. All current titles will run smoothly at 1080p60 with most settings on Medium or Medium-High.

Idling on Witcher 3 for one hour shows no recurring frame dips to suggest no interrupting background activity when gaming. There was a small dip to 38 FPS near the beginning of the test as shown by our graph below, but this never occurred a second time.

See our dedicated page on the mobile GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.
