Reviews for the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model Early 2022
The new Razer Blade 15 comes with brand new 12th generation Intel processors and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti/3080 Ti. Together with a lightning-fast 360 Hz panel, this promises an incredibly smooth display. Find out how the small chassis copes with powerful hardware in the following review.
The settings within Synapse 3 give us a clear picture of the compromises faced by Razer. In Balanced mode the laptop is lovely and quiet, however the CPU is limited to 35W PL1 and the graphics to 95W which effectively cripples the expensive hardware. In Custom High mode the CPU operates at its 45W TDP and the graphics have 105W to work with. Push things to the limit with Custom Boost mode and the CPU runs on 65W, the maximum graphics power is 105W and the cooling fans are howling away and making a fair racket. Contrast that with the larger MSI GE76 Raider which can feed 72W to the CPU (the PL1 limit is 110W) and 165W to the graphics and you can see exactly why the Razer Blade 15 is crushed by the MSI Raider GE76 in our charts.

I still think the Razer Blade is one of the best 15-inch laptops you can buy, especially if you’re in the market for one of the thinnest gaming options possible. With this 2022 Blade 15 generation, Razer kept the important parts of the design the same as before, while slightly improving the typing experience and cramming inside some of the best hardware available at this point for the thin-and-light segment. At the same time, though, the 2022 Blade is way more expensive than the previous generation, and I'm having a hard time justifying it at the current price levels.

While the Blade 15 isn't quite as sleek or portable as the latest breed of 14-inch gaming machines, there's something to be said for having a big, luxury alternative. Sure, it's really expensive, and its 15.6-inch screen and 4.4-pound body mean you might not be able to throw it in your typical messenger bag. But it's got top-notch components, a strong frame that exhibits basically zero flex, and impressive performance in a slick and (comparatively) subdued design. Well, aside from that big glowing logo. In a way, the Blade 15 is a fantastic take on a modern desktop replacement, especially for people like me who don't want to lug around a giant 17-inch rig. Unlike the ROG Flow Z13, you don't need to worry about a separate graphics dock to get peak framerates. And thanks to a wealth of ports, you can leave all of your dongles and adapters at home. So while the Blade 15 doesn't make sense for anyone on a budget, if you've got the funds, this thing is a real treat.
