With the Intel 10th gen models on the way, now would be a great time to consider the Intel 9th gen models instead. Razer is cutting prices on last year's models if the marginally improved CPU and GPU upgrades don't interest you.

Razer announced its 2020 Blade 15 refresh earlier last month coming with 10th gen Intel Comet Lake-H CPUs and GeForce Super Max-Q GPUs and, as promised, the SKUs will be ready to ship later this month on May 25.

The catch, however, is that the ultra top-end configuration with the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU is not ready to ship at the time of writing meaning users can only select the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q option for now. Both SKUs will otherwise share the same octa-core Core i7-10875H CPU designed to replace last year's 9th gen Coffee Lake-H Core i7-9750H.

The best way to distinguish the new 2020 models from the older models is by looking at the Shift key and arrow keys. Razer has enlarged the Shift key while reducing the size of the arrow keys to satisfy users who are more accustomed to typing on Ultrabooks. These systems are otherwise visually identical.

Razer is charging a hefty $2600 USD for the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q SKU, but at least it'll come standard with a 300 Hz display to reduce screen tearing even further than the existing 144 Hz or 240 Hz screens. Last year's models with the GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2060, or RTX 2070 Max-Q GPUs have been cut down by $200 to $300 each as well to make room for the 2020 models.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
