Razer Blade 17 2022 Core i7 RTX 3080 Ti laptop review: Supercharged performance

Familiar looks, new 165 W TGP graphics. The original Blade 17 design launched in 2019 with a target TGP of only 100 W. Fast-forward to 2022 and Razer has significantly upped the target to 165 W without any major changes to the chassis. Are there any repercussions users can expect from the more power-hungry internals?

Whenever a new generation of processors from Intel or Nvidia becomes available, you can count on Razer to update its Blade series with the latest CPU or GPU options. The 2022 Blade 17 is an internal update to the 2021 Blade 17 with 12th gen Intel Alder Lake-H CPUs and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti GPUs replacing the 11th gen Tiger Lake-H and RTX 3070 and 3080 options of yesteryear. As detailed in our overview of Alder Lake, the new 12th gen CPUs introduce performance P-cores and efficient E-cores while the mobile GeForce Ti series is intended to squeeze more performance from essentially the same Nvidia Ampere chipset.

Our Blade 17 unit as reviewed is a high-end configuration with the Core i7-12800H, RTX 3080 Ti GPU, and 240 Hz QHD panel for approximately $4000 USD. Other SKUs are available with the RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 Ti GPUs, FHD or UHD displays, or the Core i9-12900H CPU at various starting points. Unlike the 100 W GPU of the 10th gen Intel Blade 17 or 130 W GPU of the 11th gen Blade 17, the GPU in this 12th gen Blade 17 is targeting an even higher TGP of 165 W for potentially more performance.

Alternatives to the Blade 17 include other flagship ultrathin gaming laptops like the MSI GS76 or GS77, Asus Zephyrus S17, Aorus 17G, Alienware x17, or Maingear Vector Pro.

Case — Same, But Different

The external chassis is identical to last year's model but with two key visual differences. Firstly, the keyboard keycaps are now larger than they were on older models. Secondly, you can now only see three fans through the grilles on the bottom of the unit instead of four since Razer has removed one of the fans. These small changes have an impact on the battery and overall temperatures as our review will show.

Connectivity — Now With Two Thunderbolt 4 Ports

Port options remain identical to the 10th gen Intel model except for one key difference: both USB-C ports now support Thunderbolt instead of only one. The new model is compatible with last year's AC adapter as well, but performance may be affected since the newer 2022 model utilizes a higher capacity 280 W adapter.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is again relatively easy to remove with a T5 Torx wrench. While users have direct access to the 2x DDR5 SODIMM slots and 2x M.2 PCIe4 SSD slots, the layout of the motherboard has changed noticeably from last year's model as shown by the comparison images below.

Accessories and Warranty

The box includes the AC adapter, paperwork, and a sheet of Razer logo stickers. Razer is introducing a two-year limited battery warranty as standard alongside the base one-year limited laptop warranty with each new purchase of a 12th gen Blade model.

Input Devices — Larger Keys, Same Clickpad

Keyboard

The 2022 Blade 17 shares the same keyboard as on the 2022 Blade 15. Razer has increased the size of the keycaps while maintaining the same overall length and width of the keyboard deck for easier typing. Feedback and travel are otherwise identical to last year's model despite the size change. We suspect that more users will embrace this small year-over-year update rather than a full-on swap to optical or mechanical keys which would have likely divided Razer fans.

Touchpad

There are no changes to the touchpad for better or worse. Though we like the spacious surface area (13 x 8 cm) and smooth traction, the spongy feedback when pressed remains unsatisfying. Drag-and-drop actions are therefore more difficult when compared to laptops with dedicated mouse buttons like the Asus TUF FX506 series. Unsightly grease tends to accumulate on the matte surface as well.

Display — No OLED Options For Now

The BOE NE173QHM-NZ1 IPS panel on our test unit is fit for both graphics editing and gaming purposes. It covers the DCI-P3 color gamut completely to satisfy digital artists while offering the fast black-white response times, fast refresh rates, and G-Sync compatibility that gamers will want. Contrast could be better especially when compared to the OLED options that Razer has available on some Blade 15 units, but this is typical of IPS panels.

Aside from 240 Hz QHD, Razer also has 360 Hz FHD and 144 Hz UHD available. None are glossy or touch-compatible at the moment

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
11.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.8 ms rise
↘ 5.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance — 165 W Graphics With 12th Gen Intel

 

Testing Conditions

Our unit was set to Manual mode with the CPU and GPU on Boost and High, respectively, for the highest possible benchmark scores. Users should become familiar with the Synapse software as it serves as the control hub for system-specific features and performance profiles.

The Blade 17 is one of the few gaming laptops to support Advanced Optimus meaning that users can switch between Optimus and dGPU G-Sync modes without needing to reboot.

Processor

CPU performance is where we expect it to be relative to other laptops running on the same Core i7-12800H processor. Raw performance is about 20 to 25 percent and 50 to 70 percent over the 11th gen Core i7-11800H and 10th gen Core i7-10875H, respectively, on the older generation Blade 17 models. Upgrading to the Core i9-12900H SKU is only expected to offer a 10 percent performance boost over our Core i7-12800H configuration.

Performance sustainability is excellent with no major dips in clock rates over time when running CineBench R15 xT in a loop.

Razer Blade 17 RTX 3080 Ti: Ø6594 (6402.4-6612.32)

GPU Performance

After testing more than a half dozen laptops with mobile GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics at the time of review, the one in our Blade 17 is performing comfortably above average by about 15 percent. The high TGP target of 165 W is no doubt a big reason for the performance advantage as other laptops with the same RTX 3080 Ti GPU like the Blade 15 or Gigabyte Aero 16 YE5 tend to aim for much lower TGP targets of around 100 W instead. Users can expect a raw graphics performance boost of about 20 percent over the 10th gen or 11th gen Intel Blade 17 with regular mobile RTX 3080 graphics.

Running the system in Balanced dGPU mode instead of maximum performance dGPU mode will entail a graphics performance deficit of only about 5 to 7 percent. 

Downgrading to the mobile RTX 3070 Ti from our mobile RTX 3080 Ti will entail a performance deficit of only about 10 percent.

Of course, the "real" RTX 3080 Ti for desktop will still offer a large leap in GPU performance of almost 50 percent over our mobile version.
