Razer Blade 17 RTX 3080 Ti versus Razer Blade 17 RTX 3070 Ti - Which is the better laptop?
The Razer Blade 17 with an unleashed RTX 3080 Ti is amazing. However, we've now also reviewed the configuration with the RTX 3070 Ti and come to a conclusion. Performance versus heat development and power consumption. How significant are the differences?
We just finished our review of the Razer Blade 17 with the RTX 3070 Ti. This naturally raises the question of whether there's a performance difference at all, or whether the RTX 3070 Ti actually gets the maximum performance out of the Blade's thin case.
In fact, it's impressive to see how Razer can fit such powerful hardware into the thin case while keeping temperatures and noise in check relatively well. And yes, the RTX 3080 Ti version definitely offers a significant performance boost, especially when gaming above Full HD resolution. This performance gain can already be seen in the Blade 17's native QHD resolution.
The slightly weaker version certainly has its advantages and can be recommended to content creators or gamers who don't require maximum frame rates. All of our test games run smoothly up to QHD, and although the Blade with the RTX 3070 Ti doesn't run quieter, it runs a bit cooler and with noticeably less energy consumption, which also has a positive effect on the battery life.
A C64 marked my entry into the world of PCs. I spent my student internship in the repair department of a computer shop and at the end of the day I was allowed to assemble my own 486 PC from “workshop remnants”. As a result of this, I later studied computer science at the Humboldt University in Berlin, with psychology also being added to my studies. After my first job as a research assistant at the university, I went to London for a year and worked for Sega in computer game translation quality assurance. This included working on games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Company of Heroes. I have been writing for Notebookcheck since 2017.
I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
