CES 2019 | Razer Blade 15 Advanced gets NVIDIA RTX 2000-series graphics
The world's smallest 15.6-inch gaming laptop has just been upgraded with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2000-series graphics, but the Razer Blade 15 Advanced received a few less noticeable improvements as well, such as the new set of power management options.
All Razer Blade 15 Advanced models use the six-core Intel Core i7-8750H processor, next to 16 GB of memory and up to 512 GB of SSD internal storage. These high-end gaming machines also feature a new Windows Hello-supported IR camera for secure login via facial recognition and a rich set of connectivity options that includes HDMI, Thunderbolt 3, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and three USB 3.1 ports.
The new Razer Blade 15 Advanced comes with the following video cards: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6 GB GDDR6, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with 8 GB GDDR6, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with 8 GB GDDR6. The two top configurations use a Max-Q design "to ensure performance and user comfort" without being bulky and heavy.
While the existing 15.6-inch full HD 144 Hz display is excellent for gaming, 4K variants for the new models will also be available. The new Razer Blade 15 Advanced notebooks will be available starting Januar 29 via Razer.com and through select retailers in the US, Canada, France, Germany, China, and the UK. The prices will start at US$2,299 and will vary depending on market and configuration.
