Razer Blade 15 Advanced Gaming Benchmarks – 20 Games Tested!
Just Quickly before we jump into the benchmark results Ill cover off the specs in my unit. Ive got the highest specced version here, which has Intel i7 8750H CPU 90 watt Nvidia RTX 2080 Max Q, graphics, with 16gb of memory running in dual channel with a 144Hz 1080p 15 inch screen., The blade is also available with RTX, 2060 or 2070 max q. Graphics, so expect different results with those and you can find up to date, prices linked in the description.. I was running Windows 10 with the latest Nvidia drivers available and just a reminder were only looking at gaming performance here. If youre new to the channel get subscribed for the upcoming full review.. Well, start off with the results from all 20 games at all. Setting levels then compare with some other laptops afterwards to see how it stacks up., Battlefield, 5, was tested in campaign mode and not in multiplayer mode as its easier to consistently reproduce the test. Run.. The purple bars show the results with ray tracing disabled. While the green bars show RTX on., The RTX results were actually fairly decent. It was playable even at ultra settings. The 1 lows werent too far below the averages, so the frame rate was somewhat consistent. For a first person. Shooter, though most people just want more frames, so leaving RTX off will give you almost 100 FPS at ultra.. Battlefield 1 was also tested in campaign mode and was performing very nicely with the high frame rates, even at ultra settings.
Allowing us to take advantage of the 144Hz panel in the Blade. Apex. Legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings on the lowest possible values as it doesnt have predefined. Setting presets. It played well even with max settings still perfectly smooth. With 100 FPS averages, with 30 higher average FPS possible at minimum settings., Far Cry New Dawn was tested with the built in benchmark., While the results look pretty good in isolation. In most instances, the ASUS Scar II with RTX 2060 was actually ahead in this test, but Ill investigate performance and clockspeeds in a future. Video. Far Cry 5 was also tested with the built in benchmark and the results were ahead of the newer, Far Cry New Dawn. Just covered. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature and due to a recent game update the replay Ive used is a fair bit different compared to my previous tests, so these results cant really be compared with my past results., Regardless even with max settings over 100 FPS Was easily possible in this well optimized game. Overwatch is another well optimized game and was tested in the practice range as other players, bots and even different maps in actual gameplay affect the frame rate, and this allows for consistent testing.. Even ultra was giving us 1 lows around the refresh rate of the panel, so its running extremely well., Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark. The results were quite good for this test, in line with other 2080 Max Q, laptops, Ive tested, but well.
Compare these results to other laptops. Soon. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark, which performs worse than actual game play, making this more of a synthetic test rather than indicative of actual game performance, but does allow you to perform the same test run to compare.. Csgo was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark and, like always, high frame rates were coming out of this test with 200 just possible with all settings at minimum and not much of a drop with everything at medium.. The average frame rates were again similar to the 2060. In the Scar II for the most part, however, the 1 lows are boosted a fair bit here: comparatively. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark and is a game Ive found to benefit from Nvidias new turing architecture.. This is the first time Ive started using a 100 render scale. My previous results used 50 as thats the default, the presets of the game set. So these results are a bit lower when compared to other laptops, with the same specs due to this. PUBG was tested using the replay feature and we were only just below 100 FPS at ultra settings. In my standard test with above 60 FPS 1 lows still possible. So should run quite well, though, I still always end up playing with very low settings, because how else can you go pro Assassins? Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark, and I was getting 60 FPS with very high settings.
The results at max settings were on par with the other 90 watt 2080 Max Q laptops Ive, previously covered. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane with an average amount of action going on, and it was running very smoothly without any problems at all. I won my game anyway. No doubt thanks to the high FPS. Watch. Dogs 2 is a resource, intensive game, but despite this, even ultra settings was able to average around 60 FPS, which is plenty given. This is a game that I think runs perfectly well with a solid 30 FPS.. Ghost Recon is another demanding game and was tested using the built in benchmark.. Lower frame rates are expected with all but the most powerful laptops at ultra settings in this test, and with the 2080 Max Q were only just below a 60 FPS average, with improvements possible at lower settings.. The Witcher 3 was also running well with hairworks disabled and seems to be a game that loves higher end graphics, able to achieve above 100 FPS, even with ultra while high settings. Let us better utilize the 144Hz screen, not that this game really needs to be super. Smooth to play, but it does look great though. DOOM was tested using Vulkan and usually this game runs very well on. Basically anything, however, that was not the case. Here.. The averages are lower than what Id expect and the game felt stuttery, as shown by the poor. 1, low performance Im not really sure what the problem was.
The other games were fine, but the issue persisted after a system. Reboot. Strange Brigade was another game that was tested with Vulkan, though this one seemed to be running great, with even the 1 low at ultra. Above 100 FPS, however, as a newer game, I only recently added I dont have too much data to compare with yet. Shadow of War was tested with the built in benchmark and is another game that Ive found to benefit from Nvidias new Turing architecture.. The results were decent with over 100 FPS averages possible at very high settings, while still looking good. Lets also take a look at how this config of the Razer Blade compares with other laptops to see how it stacks up use these results as a rough guide. Only as they were tested at different times with different versions of Nvidia drivers. In Battlefield, 5 Ive got the Blade up the top in red, and we can see that its ahead of the Alienware m17, despite having the specs likely due to the thermal throttling. I noted in the m17. The blade is scoring second highest out of these laptops, however, is still behind the larger ASUS Zephyrus GX701.. Here are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark this time the Blade was behind the m17, though only just by a few frames, but only slightly ahead of the 1070 in the MSI GE75 or 2070 Max Q in the Apex 15X, which uses the popular Tongfang chassis.
. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider with the built in benchmark at highest settings and in this one the Blade is back in second place and ahead of the larger m17, but still cant catch up to the GX701 as its got G Sync and Therefore, no overhead from the Intel graphics. Overall, I thought the gaming performance from the Razer Blade was great, and so it should be considering its the highest specced model. Available. With that said, I did notice many times at lower settings. Even the ASUS Scar II with RTX 2060 was ahead of it likely due to better CPU performance, which is possible from a thicker body, or maybe the Scar II is just incredible. Ill. Be testing thermals and clockspeeds of the Razer Blade 15 in an upcoming video. So get subscribed for that one.. In any case, all games tested here played well even with max settings with the exception of DOOM for reasons unknown..
