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.
Overall, the Razer Blade 15 Studio is a killer option if you need an all-in-one machine to do creative work with. The calibrated display alone makes it worthy of consideration for such tasks, and adding the Quadro RTX 5000 with so much video memory is icing on the cake.

Lisa Gade reviews the 2020 Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, with a 10th gen 8-core Intel processor and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q graphics. The laptop comes in Mercury White and targets professional creators who do 3D rendering, CAD, video editing and more where Quadro graphics are preferred over GeForce RTX graphics. The laptop can certainly game too, since the GPU is roughly equivalent to an RTX 2080 Max-Q. The Studio Edition ships in a single configuration with a 4K wide gamut OLED touch screen, 32GB RAM, a 1TB SSD, Razer Chroma per-key RGB backlit keyboard and WiFi 6.

The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is part of Nvidia’s RTX Studio program, and it is packed with some of the most powerful internals on today’s market. These include the formidable, powerful RTX Quadro professional GPUs. While Razer has a knack for designing incredible gaming laptops, this time it has successfully transferred its skills to build a machine aimed squarely at creative professionals. The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition’s design is very similar to the Razer Blade 15 in many ways. There is an all-black unibody aluminium case along with those unmistakable green USB ports and Razer logo on the lid, which, just like on the gaming version, glows green when the laptop is switched on.
The dimensions of the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition are also quite similar to the Razer Blade 15 with a footprint of 13.98 x 9.25 x 0.70 inches. It should nevertheless be noted that the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is indeed slightly heavier than its gaming counterpart at 4.83 pounds (2.19 kg) versus 4.63 pounds (2.10 kg). That obviously makes it noticeably larger and heavier than the 15-inch MacBook Pro (13.75 x 9.48 x 0.61 inches) with a weight of 4.02 pounds (1.83 kg). Therefore, if absolute portability is key, the MacBook Pro is of course a better choice than the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition.
However, in terms of connectivity, the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition’s design is definitely a clear winner compared to the MacBook Pro. While 15-inch the MacBook Pro comes with just four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack, the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is far more generous in that aspect. First of all, there are two full-size USB 3.2 ports on the left side of the laptop, along with a headphone jack and proprietary power connector. On the right-hand side, there is another single USB-3.2 port, a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port, an HDMI port and a Mini DisplayPort for user convenience. While ports are not the best point of comparison when it comes to laptops, it cannot be denied that it is an important consideration when looking for a workstation for professional work.
Razer stated that the screen of the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition offers “Retina shattering accuracy” with its 4K screen at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, which is quite stunning compared to the Retina display of the 15-inch MackBook Pro, which is at 2,880 x 1,800. This laptop has not only beaten the MacBook Pro in terms of resolution, but also with its OLED display that delivers stunning colour vibrancy and a great contrast ratio; it is also a touchscreen. Overall, the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition 2020 is definitely a great laptop to explore, depending on the user’s choice and preference.
