Reviews for the Razer Blade (2016) FHD

Successful. Razer's thin 14-inch is packed with powerful hardware that can handle all modern games on the matte Full HD display. You also get good input devices and Thunderbolt 3. The stamina of the small system is not bad, either.

We’ve always appreciated Razer’s Blade gaming laptops for their attention to build quality and design. It’s something that, at the time of their debut, was a bit lacking in the world of Windows notebooks. From the start, Razer has always been after a very specific type of gamer.

80% Razer Blade (Late 2016)

The new Razer Blade brings an unmatched combination of performance and portability, with new components that put it beyond the power of its 970M-wielding forebear. It doesn't lose anything in the process, and in fact gains longer battery life. It's probably not worth upgrading if you already have the previous model, but if you held out for a Pascal card, you're in luck. The Alienware 13 comes close, but the Blade offers a bigger screen (especially important as some might already consider 14 inches too small), a longer-lasting battery, and a nicer design. If you expect to take your laptop with you frequently, or move it around often, the Blade is unbeatable due to its power and build quality, earning our Editors' Choice for ultraportable gaming laptops. If your system will remain more stationary, you don't mind carrying a bigger laptop, or you are set on a larger, higher-resolution display, our recommendation in this price range is the HP Omen 17.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is an American hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories; traditionally computer mice. The products were often named after fables or animals. However, Razer also offers laptops under the series name "Blade".

There are reviews on the Razer Blade series since 2013, but not overly many. The market share in the laptop market is low and the ratings are average (as of 2016).


84.82%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
