Razer Blade 15 Advanced (Early 2021) Review: Now with a 360-Hz screen

Even sharper. The Blade 15 Advanced scores some major points with its powerful hardware and great battery life. What is more, the Blade 15 Advanced now features a second M.2-2280 slot.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Stanislav Kokhanyuk), 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 ...

The Razer Blade 15 Advanced (Early 2021) is a slim 15.6-inch gaming notebook with very powerful hardware. The competing devices include the Schenker XMG Pro 15 (Early 2021), the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503Q, the Aorus 15P XC and the Lenovo Legion 7 15IMH05.

Because our current review device and its predecessor are identically built, we forewent including the information about the housing, connectivity, input devices and speakers in this review. Readers can find all relevant information in our reviews of the Blade 15 Advanced (2019) and the Blade 15 Advanced (2020).

Overview of the Changes

At first glance, the Blade 15 Advanced 2020 looks exactly like the 2021 model. The colour scheme, the form and the footprint have not changed. However, the 2021 model is slightly thinner (16.9 mm vs. 17.8 mm). There were changes to the internal components, though. The 2021 model comes with new RTX 3000-series GPUs and has a second M.2-2280 SSD slot. Moreover, it has a 360-Hz 1080p screen.

Display - 360-Hz-IPS

Both the contrast ratio (1408:1) and the brightness (334.2 cd/m²) are quite good. The response times of the 15.6-inch IPS panel are on a good level, but they are slightly lower than the response times of the 300-Hz panel that the Blade 15 Advanced 2020 had. Positive: the screen does not exhibit PWM flickering.

* ... smaller is better

Straight out of the box, the screen is very colour-accurate. The colour deviations (DeltaE 2000 of 1.4) are well below the perceivable threshold (DeltaE 2000 of 3 or greater). The screen is not marred by a bluish cast. The colour accuracy can be further improved via calibration. Through calibration, we were able to lower the DeltaE 2000 to 0.97 and improve grayscale tracking. The panel manages to cover 89% of sRGB and 68% of AdobeRGB.

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
10.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 4.4 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. » 14 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
16 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.6 ms rise
↘ 8.4 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers very wide viewing angles, which is why the screen content can be read from any position. Outdoors, the display is legible as long as the sun does not shine too brightly.

Review Settings

The pre-installed Razer Synapse utility allows users to configure the fan profiles and adjust CPU and GPU performance. We conducted most of our benchmarks in Balanced mode. Moreover, we set the fan speed to Auto. However, we conducted some of our benchmarks in Performance mode (max CPU/GPU performance). The results of the benchmarks, which we conducted in Performance mode, are marked with the word "max”.

Processor

The Core i7-10875H is an octa-core Comet Lake-based processor with a base clock of 2.3 GHz. It has an all-core boost clock of 4.3 GHz and a single core boost clock of 5.1 GHz. Hyper-threading (two cores per thread) is supported.

In Cinebench R15, the CPU runs at 2.8 to 3.4 GHz when all cores are utilised and at 4.2 to 4.8 GHz when only one core is utilised. On battery power, the all-core frequency ranges from 2 GHz to 2.2 GHz and the single-core frequency fluctuates between 1.9 and 3.8 GHz.

Single-core performance (when plugged-in)

We check if the Turbo boost can be used over an extended period of time by running the Cinebench multi-core benchmark in a continuous loop for 30 minutes. The Turbo boost technology is utilised at a low level. However, In "Performance" mode, which you can enable in the Synapse utility, the processor is able to maintain higher clocks.

Graphics Card

The GeForce RTX 3080 (laptop) is Nvidia’s current highest-end GPU for notebooks. The real-world performance depends a lot on the maximum TGP, which manufacturers can determine on their own. However, laptop-makers have to stay within certain bounds defined by Nvidia.

The RTX 3080 in the Blade 15 Advanced has a maximum TGP of 95 watts (80 W (Base) + 15 W (Dynamic Boost)). These are not very high values for this particular GPU. The graphics card can draw up to 95 W in High Performance mode, which you can select in the Synapse utility. By default, the laptop runs in Balanced mode (80 W (Base) + 5 W (Dynamic Boost).

In the 3DMark benchmarks, the Blade 15 Advanced performs as expected. Here, the Aorus 15P XC with a nominally slower GeForce RTX 3070 performs slightly better, because its GPU has a maximum TGP of 130 W.

The RTX 3080 features 8 GB of fast GDDR6 VRAM. The UHD Graphics 630, which is integrated into the Core i7-10875H, is enabled and Nvidia’s graphics switching technology (Optimus) is supported. The iGPU can be disabled in the BIOS settings.

Gaming Performance

The Blade 15 Advanced can handle current titles at 1080p on the highest settings. To achieve playable frame rates at higher resolutions (for instance, when gaming with an external monitor), the graphics settings will have to be lowered in some cases.

We use the video game known as The Witcher 3 to check if the frame rates can be maintained consistently over an extended period of time. For this, we run the game on the highest settings at 1080p for one hour. Over the entire run of gameplay, the player-controlled character just stands still. There are no frame rate drops to report.
