Razer Blade 17 (Early 2022) review: Elegant 4k gaming laptop with a bright screen

Dull or sharp? A Core i9-12900H and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti provide sufficient performance for 4k gaming, video processing, and rendering. The matte 4k display (IPS, 144 Hz) scores with a good color reproduction and high brightness. Our test shows what else the new Blade 17 in the high-end configuration can do.

The Razer Blade 17 is targeted towards gamers and creative professionals - particularly in our tested high-end configuration with a Core i9-12900H CPU, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, and 17.3-inch 4k display with accurate colors. The price point lies at around 4,700 Euros (~$4,900). In addition to the RTX 3080 Ti, its US sibling that we already tested had a Core i7-12800H CPU and a QHD-Panel (240 Hz). The competitors include extremely powerful laptops such as the Alienware x17 R2 P48E, the Medion Erazer Beast X30, and the MSI Stealth GS77 12UHS.

You can find information on the case, connection equipment, input devices, and speakers in our review of the identically constructed Blade 17 2022 (Core i7, QHD).

Display - Bright and with accurate colors

In our test unit, Razer uses an impressive 17.3-inch display with a 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) and 144 Hz refresh rate that offers a higher brightness (486.3 cd/m²) and shorter response times than the displays of the competitors. This also goes for the comparison with the QHD panel of the US sibling model that we already tested. The contrast of 1,143:1 is also at a high level, and we did not observe any PWM flickering during our measurements.

In terms of the color reproduction and color space coverage, the 4K panel and the QHD panel of the sibling model are similar, with both models delivering good values of almost identical levels already in the state of delivery. The average color deviations remain within the target range of DeltaE < 3. A calibration brings further improvements, and our profile file is linked in the info window on the display above for your free download. However, the 4K panel shows some slight weakness in the blue tones even after the calibration. Both displays are able to cover the sRGB and DCI-P3 color spaces completely, and the AdobeRGB color space is at least covered to 86 and 87% respectively.

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
5.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.6 ms rise
↘ 4 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.2 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
7.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.1 ms rise
↘ 5.4 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.5 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19984 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers stable viewing angles and can be read from any angle. Thanks to the fairly high display brightness, you can also read its contents easily outdoors.

Test Conditions

You can switch between the three available performance profiles ("Balanced," "Silent," and "User defined") by using the "Fn" + "P" key combination. The "User defined" profile allows you to set the sub-presets for the CPU ("Low," "Medium," "High," and "Boost") and GPU ("Low," "Medium," and "High") via the Razer Synapse software. In battery operation, the only profile available is "Balanced."

During our test, we used the "User defined" profile with the "Medium" (CPU) and "High" (GPU) sub-presets, which is the default setting in the state of delivery. In addition, we ran several benchmarks using the "Silent" profile, at maximum performance (CPU: "Boost", GPU: "High"), and in the dGPU mode. You can find the results in the charts below.

Processor

The Core i9-12900H processor (Alder Lake) consists of six performance cores (Hyperthreading, 2.5 to 5 GHz) and eight efficiency cores (no Hyperthreading, 1.8 to 3.8 GHz). In total, this results in 20 logical CPU cores.

During the CB15 Multi Thread test, the "Medium" CPU sub-preset ensures speeds (P cores: 2.6 to 2.7 GHz, E cores: 2.1 GHz) just above the basic clock speed. The Single Thread test completes with high clock speeds (P cores: 4 to 4.6 GHz, E cores: 2.1 to 3.7 GHz). In battery operation, the values are significantly lower.

Using the same CPU presets, the Core i9 only delivers a slight performance advantage in the peaks compared to the Core i7-12800H processor of the sibling model. This is not surprising, since both CPUs offer the same amount of cores and the Core i9 offers a slightly higher maximum speed (5 GHz vs. 4.8 GHz).

Multi Thread (battery operation)
Multi Thread (battery operation)
Single Thread (battery operation)
Single Thread (battery operation)

In multi-thread operation, the intensity of the Turbo usage depends a lot on the selected CPU sub-preset. In all cases, the CPU is able to run constantly at an even clock speed, which is shown by the CB15 loop test. It is noticeable that the CPU clock speed drops slightly from the first to the second/third run, regardless of the selected preset. The i9 CPU will only bring a noteworthy advantage to the user compared to the i7 CPU in some brief load peaks. Under longer loads, the performance gap between both processors is narrowing, and they end up very close to each other.

DPC Latencies

The standardized Latency Monitor test (web surfing, 4k video reproduction, Prime95 High Load) revealed some conspicuous behavior in the DPC latencies. The system doesn't appear to be suited for real-time video and audio processing. Future software updates might lead to improvements or even make things worse.

Storage Solution

Razer has equipped the Blade with a 1-TB SSD (PCIe 4, M.2-2280) from Samsung that delivers very good transfer rates. In addition, the laptop offers space for a second SSD (PCIe 4, M.2-2280).

A PCIe-4 SSD serves as the system drive.
