Razer Blade 15 Advanced Review – Low Performance?
. The Blade 15 is available in either the base model or the advanced model which has higher specs and thats. What were looking at here., The specs in my unit, are at the higher end of whats available, but you can check out others and updated prices linked in the description., Like many others from Razer. The Blade 15 advanced is a solid, aluminium unibody design with a clean, matte black finish.. The build quality feels excellent, though the edges along the front could feel a little sharp. Depending on the angle, I rub up against. Them. Razer lists the weight as 4.7 para 4.9 pounds or 2.14 to 2.2kg, and mine was on the lower side of that range. I suspect the optional glass OLED panel weighs more. Its definitely on the thinner side for a 15 inch gaming laptop with these specs inside the overall footprint is quite portable, and this results in 7mm thin screen bezels on the sides. O meu tem um. 15.6 1080p 300Hz display, But its also available with a 4K OLED option., Unfortunately theres no G Sync. Contudo, we do have the option of disabling Optimus after a reboot for increased gaming performance, but theres no advanced optimus here., I measured the screens average grey to grey response time at 3.8ms theres a link in the description. Se você precisa de uma explicação sobre esses números., This is a great result when we compare it against other gaming laptops just a little behind the ideal 3.
33ms needed for a 300Hz panel. Testei a tela com o Spyder 5 e tem 98 de sRGB 70 do NTSC 76 de AdobeRGB e 76 de DCI P3. em 100 Brilho. Eu medi o painel em 278 nits no centro e com um 7401 relação de contraste, so decent colour gamut, but not quite as bright as Id like. Backlight bleed, was minor. In this worst case. I wasnt able to notice the glow spots when viewing darker content, mas isso vai variar entre laptops e painéis.. There was some flex to the screen, but it was on the lower side owing to the metal lid.. There was also some flex to the keyboard when pushing down hard, but no issues at all during normal use. Global, it felt fairly solid due to the metal unibody design. Há, a 720p camera above the display in the middle and its got IR for Windows, Olá suporte, que eu encontrei para trabalhar bem.. This is what the camera and microphone look and sound like on the Razer Blade, 15 Avançado, so yeah not great compared to most others. Ive recently used. O teclado tem por chave RGB iluminação de fundo, que ilumina todas as teclas e funções de chave secundárias. Effects and customizations can be made through the included Razer Synapse software.. It seems to have about 16 níveis de brilho chave, and this can be controlled by holding function and pressing. The F10 and F11 keys. Typing took me a little getting used to and Im not really sure why, but it felt fine after a bit of use.
The only thing I didnt like was the small up and down arrow keys. Heres. Como digitar soa para lhe dar uma ideia do que esperar.. There are front facing speakers on either side of the keyboard and although they look impressive compared to others, I didnt think they were that amazing, perhaps a little above average with some bass.. They sounded quite loud at max volume, despite measurements, not really reflecting this, qual, I suppose is simply due to their placement and the latencymon results were looking alright.. The power button is found towards the top of the right speaker, which I preferred compared to others that have it as part of the keyboard so far less chance of mispressing it. The glass precision touchpad clicks down anywhere and is one of the best Ive used.. Its quite large and makes use of the available space well, and it just feels extremely smooth and nice to press.. The black matte finish makes the Blade quite the fingerprint magnet even light touches, show up easily. Its not too hard to clean as a smooth surface, but occasionally I had to give it some extra elbow grease. À esquerda da parte de trás há. A entrada de energia. Two USB 3.2 Tipo Gen2, Um porto, USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C port and 3.5mm audio combo jack. Ferragem, Canucks noted in their review that the power cable can cover the USB slot but like if thats an issue just dont plug it in that way.
. I liked the right angled design as it gets the cable running straight out, the back and out of my way. À direita da frente há um tamanho completo, UHS III, Slot para cartão SD, Im glad to see that here, a Thunderbolt 3 Porta tipo C. Terceiro, USB 3.2 Tipo Gen2, Um porto, HDMI, 2.0b output and Kensington lock.. The blade can also be charged with either Type C port and both also offer DisplayPort support., Both Type C ports, along with HDMI connect directly to the Nvidia GPU, bypassing the Intel. Igpu no surprise there as we can disable optimus.. The back appears clean until we look underneath we can see the air exhaust vents are hidden back here. Entretanto, the front is clean, with just a status LED on the right and a gap to get your finger in to open the lid.. The razer logo on the lid lights up green, its separate to the screen’s backlight. So it stays on when the lid is closed and I didnt see a way of modifying it through software.. Underneath is also pretty clean. Just some air intake vents towards the back directly above the fans and rubber feet down the front and bottom, which did a fair job of preventing sliding around when in use. Entrando, was easy enough after removing 10 screws with a TR5 bit and the 4 down The front are shorter than the others. Inside weve got the battery along the front: a single M.
2 storage slot above it on the left, two memory slots in the middle WiFi, 6 card towards the right and the vapor chamber, cooler up the back., Unlike some others. With this same CPU, like the Lenovo 7i Razer is running the memory at DDR4 2933 em vez de 3200 Velocidade, and I wasnt able to change this in the BIOS.. The advanced model of blade 15 is powered by a 80Wh battery and Ive tested it with the keyboard lighting off background apps, desativado e tela em 50 Brilho.. The results seem reasonable for a laptop of this spec lasting for just over 7 horas. In my YouTube, playback test. Ive also tested it, but with Optimus disabled and it was now lasting for about half as long 3 and a half hours in the same test as the Nvidia graphics uses. More battery. Vamos dar uma olhada.. Térmicas próximas. Ive got a whole video covering this topic in depth, linked in the description Ill. Just summarise: the important parts here., The Razer Synapse software – has a default mode called balanced, mas você também pode selecionar personalizado que permite modificar o desempenho da CPU e gpu independentemente um do outro.. A CPU pode ser alternada entre quatro níveis: baixo médio alto e impulsionar, enquanto a GPU tem três modos: Baixo, médio e alto.. Não parece que temos controle do ventilador no modo personalizado, embora possamos alterá-lo um pouco no modo padrão equilibrado. If we set it to manual.
, Nenhum desses modos aplicou quaisquer overclocks na GPU. Contudo, o Blade faz uso do novo max q impulso dinâmico max q da Nvidias, mas dito isso, Eu nunca vi isso aumentar acima 90 watts com uma GPU apenas carga em execução.. Eu não testei sub-evolução como Im usando o mais recente 1.04 BIOS no momento do teste, que aparentemente desativou isso.. I didnt test the older BIOS but could at least confirm that its disabled in the current verison, sem opção no BIOS para habilitá-lo. The idle temperatures were ok with a 21 grau Celsius. Room stress tests were done with Heaven and Aida64, enquanto o jogo foi feito com Watch Dogs, 2. Temperatures increase in the higher performance modes and there was some thermal throttling with the CPU Boost mode in use.. We can see how the power limits are modified with these different modes here, so never above 90 watts on the 2080 Super Max Q, which was hit with the GPU set to high and around mid 50s for the CPU best case.. These are the clock speeds seen from these same tests, pretty similar to the Lenovo 7i, with the same processor best case, not counting its undervolted results. CPU. Only performance was where I noticed an issue. Com uma CPU, apenas o teste de estresse em execução e a GPU. Agora ocioso estavam vendo 55 watts sendo atingidos na melhor das hipóteses, boost mode pretty similar to what was possible with the GPU active in the results.
We just looked at.. Isso significa que não está ficando quente quando estavam quebrando o processador embora, mas isso vem às custas de menos desempenho, foram apenas atingindo 3.2GHz em todos os 8 núcleos neste teste, which is honestly quite weak.. Isso fica claro quando olhamos como o Blade se compara com outros laptops. Tenha em mente que este é um 8 laptop núcleo, mas o resultado multicore está mais em linha com o que estavam vendo a partir de 6 opções principais.. O resultado do núcleo único é pelo menos melhor do que aqueles 6 opções principais, mas quando comparado com a maioria dos outros 8 core laptops, above its still not anything special., Most other laptops will boost the processor higher when the GPU isnt using power and creating heat, mas isso é. Not the case here., The keyboard area never felt hot, though the wrist rest was warmer than many other laptops when under load, which is likely due to the metal unibody design, which conducts the heat., It did feel quite hot right up the back under the screen. But you dont need to touch there, so it shouldnt be an issue. Vamos ouvir o barulho dos fãs.. It was just audible when idling, but even worst case its not as loud when compared to many other laptops that Ive tested. Now lets check out how well this higher end configuration performs in games and compare it with some other laptops. No Campo de Batalha 5 Ive got the Blade highlighted in red.
, The average frame rate was quite decent when compared against others, its the highest result. Ive got from a 90 watt GPU so far, and this is likely due to the option of being able to disable optimus.. Estes são os resultados de Far Cry 5 com configurações ultra no embutido em benchmark. Desta vez. O Tritão de Acer 500, with last gen, CPU and GPU, was a little ahead, though this test is more processor intensive and the last gen Triton 500 has a CPU undervolt applied by default out of the box, and I suspect this is whats, giving it the edge. Shadow Of the Tomb Raider was also tested with the games benchmark tool with the highest setting preset. Desta vez. The lower wattage 2080 Super Max Q in the GS66 was 1 FPS à frente, though it does have a higher tier i9 processor, with higher power limit, de qualquer maneira, not too different. Todas as coisas consideradas. Ive tested the blade 15 advanced in 20 jogos em tudo. Setting levels check out the card in the top right corner or link in the video description. If you want to see results in more games. Agora, as ferramentas de benchmarking, Testado ive, Vale do Céu e Superposição da Unigine, as well as Firestrike Timespy and Port Royal from 3DMark. Just pause: o vídeo, se você quiser um olhar detalhado para esses resultados. Ive, used Adobe Premiere to export one of my laptop review videos at 4K and the blade 15 wasnt doing as well as expected.
My older Y540, com 6 core i7 and 1660 Ti, is doing better here. Ive também testou Premiere, mas com o benchmark de sistemas Puget, which also accounts for things like live playback, rather than just export times., Novamente, the blade wasnt as good when compared to others with higher Specs the exception being the MSI Creator 17, which has a lower result too. No Adobe Photoshop. The blade is now scoring quite poorly, and this is because this is a processor intensive test., As discussed earlier. Processor performance is lower compared to alternatives and thats being reflected here. Em uma carga de trabalho que é mais GPU pesado como DaVinci resolver, though the blade is scoring much better and is closer to the top of the graph. As the processor seems to matter less here, Comparativamente. Ive também testou SPECviewperf, que testa várias cargas de trabalho profissionais 3D. Ive used the OpenVR benchmark to test the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite and the Blade was doing alright near many other 2080 e 2080 Super machines. A little ahead of MSIs GS66 likely as that one has a lower 80 limite de energia watt, regardless no issues running VR on this hardware. Ive used Crystal Disk Mark to test the 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD and the results were decent. Not super amazing for the writes, Embora, but pretty good.. The SD card slot is basically maxing out. My V90 card, which is great to see and the card clicks in and sits most of the way into the machine.
For updated prices, check the links in the description. Como os preços vão mudar com o tempo. No momento da gravação nos EUA, the configuration Ive tested here goes for 2800 USD, but there are also much cheaper options depending on the specs youre after.. Entretanto, here in Australia were looking at around 6000 Aud. For the top end, Especificação, so quite an expensive option. Com tudo isso em mente, lets conclude by summarising the good and bad aspects of the Razer Blade 15 advanced model to help you decide if its worthwhile. Razer still has one of the most premium. Looking and feeling gaming laptops on the market, the all metal body and clean matte black finish is iconic for them at this point.. The gaming performance is quite impressive when you consider that its just 0.7 thick and the fans dont get as loud as many alternative options, but this combination comes along with some compromises.. The first is that theres, just one M.2 slot available inside for storage, making the upgrade process more challenging compared to just installing another SSD.. The next is the performance. Apesar de ter Nvidias Max Q impulso dinâmico, I wasnt seeing much boosting. Performance in processor. Intensive workloads was also lower compared to most others, as Razer is limiting CPU performance to the same levels, regardless of whether or not the GPU is active, despite there being thermal headroom available. Technically, they could change this in a future BIOS update and I hope they do As it would greatly improve performance in many tasks such as rendering and editing, Embora, given undervolting was removed in a recent BIOS update, perhaps its wishful thinking to hope for changes that improve performance.
. The screen was decent in terms of response time and colour gamut, though a little lower in terms of brightness and contrast, but there is the OLED option for creators. Its good, that weve got the option of disabling optimus to boost performance, but next time I hope we See advanced optimus added, so we can avoid rebooting and G. Sync would have been a nice bonus at this price.. The camera was pretty bad, Concedido, thats kind of par for the course. With most gaming laptops., The touchpad was excellent keyboard good and speakers alright. The blade 15 Não, the most powerful, but was nice to use as a laptop. During my testing, e como mencionado, Eu acho, Há, some room for future improvements.. If you work on processor, heavy tasks, youll want to consider looking elsewhere, but as far as gaming goes, if you can get by without G Sync, it does run games well..
