Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition (2020) Laptop Review: Small changes, better overall package

Resharpened. Razer’s workstation features a lot of performance, a 4K OLED touchscreen, a Thunderbolt 3 port, 32 GB of RAM (running in dual-channel mode), 16 GB of VRAM and a 1 TB NVMe SSD.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, Felicitas Krohn (translated by Stanislav Kokhanyuk),

The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is a workstation with an Intel Core i7-10875H and an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q. The crown jewel of the Blade 15 is a 4K OLED touchscreen, which was also used in last year’s identically built Blade 15 2019. The competing devices include: the Lenovo ThinkPad P53, the MSI P65 Creator 9SF and the Dell Precision 5540.

Because the Blade 15 2020 and the Blade 15 2019 are identically built, we shall not provide extensive descriptions of the case, ports, input devices and the speakers - with the exception of any changes. You can find all the relevant information in our review of the Blade 15 Studio Edition (2019).

Connectivity - USB 3.2 Gen 2 replaces Mini DisplayPort

Razer has made a few minor changes when it comes to the selection of ports. The MiniDP port has been replaced by the USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, which can output a DisplayPort signal. The three Type-A ports now operate at USB 3.2 Gen 2 speeds.

Display - OLED panel delivers a superb contrast ratio

Pixel arrangement
Pixel arrangement

The Razer Blade 15 has a 15.6-inch OLED touchscreen with a native resolution of 3840x2160. The display offers a superb contrast ratio (21111:1), an impressive black value (0.018), a good maximum brightness (388.4 cd/m²) and fast response times. It covers 100% of the sRGB colour space. Positive: The screen does not suffer from PWM flickering.

The Blade 15 2020 comes with the same panel as the predecessor model. Nevertheless, there is some difference between the two panels. However, this is quite normal, because two similarly built screens are never 100% identical.

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
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.8 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 17699 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance - Two additional CPU cores for the Blade 15

The Blade 15 Studio Edition from Razer is a 15.6-inch workstation. It offers enough performance for all current applications. Our review device retails for 4,700 Euros ($5,526). Other hardware configurations are not available.

System Settings

The preinstalled “Synapse” utility offers options for the customisation of the CPU and GPU performance. We conducted all of our benchmarks with the fan speed set to “Auto”. We also used the "balanced" power plan. However, some of our benchmarks were carried out with the CPU and GPU performance maxed out. We clearly marked all the benchmark results that we got with the power limits disabled.

Processor

The Core i7-10875H in the Blade 15 is an octa-core Comet Lake-based processor. It has a base clock of 2.3 GHz and a boost clock of 4.3 GHz for eight cores and 5.1 GHz for one core. The CPU supports Hyper-Threading, which means that one core can process two threads at the same time.

In the multi-core Cinebench R15 benchmarks, the CPU operates at 2.6 to 3 GHz for a short time. Subsequently, the CPU frequency drops to 2.1 to 2.2 GHz. In the single-core benchmark, the processor runs at 4 to 4.9 GHz. When running on battery power, the processor runs at 1.6 to 1.7 GHz in the multi-core CB15 benchmark and at 2.2 to 3.3 GHz in the single-core CB15 benchmark.

We check if the Turbo boost can be used consistently by running the Cinebench R15 multi-core benchmark in a continuous loop for 30 minutes. The results drop from the first to the second benchmark run. After that, they stay consistently on the same level. The Turbo boost is utilised but at a low level.

If users select the maximum CPU performance mode in Razer’s “Synapse” utility, then the CPU will be able to boost higher, which will result in a greater level of performance.

Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition 2020 Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q, i7-10875H, Samsung PM981a MZVLB1T0HBLR: Ø3028 (2495.82-3053.66)

Graphics Card

The Turing-based Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q offers a base clock of 600 MHz and a boost clock of 1350 MHz. The GPU can boost even higher as long as it does not exceed thermal and power limits. The highest clock speed that we observed in our review was 1889 MHz. In our stress test with The Witcher 3, the GPU had an average clock speed of 1222 MHz in balanced mode and 1300 MHz in performance mode. The GPU comes with 16 GB of fast GDDR6 memory.

The 3DMark results are on a normal level. The integrated UHD Graphics 630 in the Core i7-10875H is enabled, which is why NVIDIA’s Optimus technology is utilised.

If users select the maximum GPU performance mode in Razer’s “Synapse” utility, then the TGP (Total Graphics Power) rises slightly. This results in a slight boost in benchmark scores. The frame rates also rise, but not by a lot. We saw a slight increase in frame rates in The Witcher 3
