Razer Blade 15 just got $400 cheaper, now shipping with a new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti option
With the new Ice Lake-U Blade Stealth front and center at this year's IFA 2019, Razer has taken the opportunity to quietly update its Blade 15 series with a fourth Turing GPU option. Previous SKUs were limited to the RTX 2060, RTX 2070 Max-Q, and RTX 2080 Max-Q only.
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti SKU is the latest entry-level option for the Blade 15 and it retails for $400 cheaper than the previous cheapest RTX 2060 option. When considering that the mobile GTX 1660 Ti is merely just a few percentage points slower than the mobile RTX 2060, this would make the Blade 15 series even more attractive than before especially if you have no interest in RTX-specific features like ray-tracing or DLSS.
Other than the GPU swap, the GTX 1660 Ti SKU will come with a much smaller 128 GB SSD accompanied by a 1 TB HDD for storage. Furthermore, the 144 Hz panel is only optional whereas the aforementioned RTX SKUs all come with 144 Hz panels as standard.
We'll be testing the GTX 1660 Ti SKU soon to see how it holds up against its siblings. Razer is now shipping this configuration for a starting price of $1600.
