The Razer Blade 15 family has been updated once again for the 2019.

It wasn’t long ago that the Advanced Model was released last January and was sporting the fastest mobile processor at that time – the 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H.

And aside from that it has a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics card. So all-in-all it was a pretty fast gaming laptop. Coupled with Razer’s in-house designed cooling solution, it was what I wanted.

We also have an article for the base model here – Razer Blade 15 Base Model (i7-8750H + GTX 1060).

Fast forward to April 23,2019 and Intel finally released their 9th Generation Intel Core mobile processors. And this ushered a release of new or refreshed laptop models from every major brand sporting the new 9th Gen processors.

And this includes Razer, so let’s take a quick look at what has changed with the Razer Blade 15 family.

Razer Blade 15 Powered by Intel’s Latest and Greatest

The newly refreshed Base and Advanced models now sports Intel’s latest 9th Generation Intel Core i7-9750H processor. Having a Turbo clock of up to 4.5Ghz and a base clock of 2.6Ghz.

One of the most notable changes with the new i9-9750H is the clock speeds as compared to the previous i7-8750H. The new processor has a 0.30Ghz – 0.40Ghz difference versus the i7-8750H base clock and turbo clock.

Another notable change is with its SmartCache, the new i7-9750H now has 12MB as compared to the i7-8750H of 9MB.

The new 6 cores / 12 thread processor surely offers an increase in gaming performance and as well as in everyday computing.

GeForce RTX Graphics Cards all the way

Razer has decided to only have GeForce RTX graphics cards on its refreshed Base and Advanced models.

The Base model will be sporting a GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, a decent upgrade from the GTX 1060 of the previous version.

While for the Advanced Model, a choice between an RTX 2070 Max-Q or an RTX 2080 Max-Q are being offered.

Paired with these great graphics cards are a Full HD 144Hz for the Base model and a Full HD 240Hz screen. Both screens have a 4.9mm bezel, 100% sRGB rating, and are individually factory calibrated.

RAM and Storage

For RAM configuration, both Base and Advanced models will come with 16GB dual-channel modules (8GBx2) DDR4-2667Mhz.

Upgradeability of RAM is what differs from the Base and Advanced model. The Base model can only be upgraded up to 32GB of RAM, while the Advanced Model can be upgraded up to 64GB and is Intel XMP compatible.

Storage configurations have also changed much for both models.

The Base model comes with a 512GB NVMe and an empty 2.5″ slot for an SSD/HDD upgrade.

While for the Advanced Models there’s a choice between a 265GB NVMe or 512GB NVMe. The Advanced models losses the extra 2.5″ slot that the Base model has.
