Reviews for the Razer Blade 15 RTX 2080 Max-Q
Source: Ultrabook Review
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.

At S$4,679, the Blade 15 will cut a huge chunk out of your wallet, but that's the price you pay for a top-end GPU and good design. To be sure, it's hardly perfect, and noise and heat concerns are very real. However, I could say the same of pretty much any slim and light gaming laptop, and the fact remains that the Blade 15 stands up well against the competition and is simply very, very fast.

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.

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.
