Reviews for the Razer Blade 15 RTX 2070 Max-Q

84.7% Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (RTX 2070 Max-Q, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The Blade 15 series is barely one year old and it has already expanded across two generations of Nvidia GeForce GPUs with multiple display options ranging from FHD 144 Hz to full-on OLED. For this particular review, we'll focus on the RTX 2070 Max-Q SKU to see what kind of performance advantages it carries over last year's GTX 1070 Max-Q options.
80% Razer Blade 15 (2019) review
Source: PC Advisor English
The addition of an RTX 2070 Max-Q and an impressive 240Hz screen make the latest Blade an excellent – if expensive – option for esports and conventional gaming. Razer has improved this machine’s thermal performance, too, and the exterior remains one of the slimmest and sleekest on the market. Just be aware that the Blade is not cheap – and its keyboard won’t sate some serious players.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Razer Blade 15 may offer ray tracing and one of the best performances currently found in a gaming laptop, but the lack of DLSS support, G-Sync and 1TB storage make that sky-high price difficult to justify. Unlike other sites, we thoroughly test every product we review. We use industry standard tests in order to compare features properly. We’ll always tell you what we find. We never, ever accept money to review a product.

Razer continues to raise the bar with its gaming laptops. For $2,649, you get the Advanced Version of the Razer Blade 15, which comes in a stunning white aluminum chassis. And measuring 14 x 9.3 x 0.7 inches, it's officially the smallest 15-inch gaming system on the block. But this is a svelte beast, as it packs l a Core i7 CPU and Nvidia's impressive new RTX GPUs. The notebook is ready to game, video edit, crunch numbers and more at the drop of a hat.

The Razer Blade may be egregiously priced, but Razer crammed much more value into its high-power gaming laptop than ever before. If you do end up plunking down the thousands required, know that you’re getting the complete gaming laptop package.

The 2019 Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model takes last year's slick, winning design and adds peppy, muscled-up Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics. It's our top recommendation in its class.

The 2019 version of the Razer Blade 15 really won me over this year and overall this is the best-polished gaming ultraportable on the market right now. Razer packed plenty of performance into this small body, the build is just as robust as it's always been, the software has a purpose and works well, the trackpad is huge and works flawlessly, the screen is great, you get punchy front-facing speakers and they’ve even added biometrics into the tiny bezel. It still sits a little higher in cost than the competition, but the premium is worth it.

The machine in our Razer Blade 15 review looks fantastic – as usual. The latest laptop from Razer is sleek and smart. It’s got better aesthetics and a slimmer, lighter body than all of its rivals.

The Razer Blade 15 delivers good gaming speed and looks better than anything else out there – but more conventional laptops offer a better, more balanced experience for less cash. Unless you’re particularly focused on style, we’d probably look elsewhere.

Razer Blade 15 (2019) first look: Ray tracing arrives on the gaming laptop king
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Partnering one of the very best gaming laptops of 2018 with Nvidia’s new generation of RTX graphics cards seems a sure-fire way of hitting the jackpot. As long as the Blade 15’s new benchmark results match up to the lofty price points, I can see Razer retaining the crown of “best gaming laptop” for a successive year.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
