Razer Blade Pro 17 (2019) Gaming Benchmarks – 20 Games Tested!
Against other gaming laptops. Just quickly before we jump into the benchmark, results Ill cover off the specs. In my unit., My model has the Intel i7 9750H CPU, 100 watt, Nvidia RTX 2070, Max Q, graphics and 16gb of memory running in dual channel.. The Razer Blade Pro 17 is available with different specs, though you can find examples as well as updated prices linked in the description.. I was running Windows 10, with the latest Nvidia drivers available with both CPU and GPU performance set to high. Compared to stock. This will overclock the graphics, a bit. Out of the box. My unit was also undervolted by 0.1v and the 2070 Max Q was running at 100. Watts so were expecting some good performance. Here. Were only covering gaming performance here. So if youre new to the channel youll want to get subscribed for the thermal testing and full review., Alright well start off by going through all 20 games at all setting levels, then afterwards see how the Razer Blade Pro 17 compares with some other gaming laptops. Battlefield. 5 was tested in campaign mode and not in multiplayer mode as its easier to consistently reproduce. The test. Run. Maxed out at ultra settings was only just below 100 FPS, with RTX off shown by the purple bars one of the best results Ive ever seen from a laptop., The RTX on results, werent too bad, either higher than most other machines and still pretty playable at High settings.
Battlefield 1 was also tested in campaign mode and, like always its running well and performing a bit better than the newer Battlefield 5 just shown. At ultra settings 144 FPS averages were possible. A nice match up for the 144Hz screen, even maxed out. 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 still played great at ultra settings with 100 FPS. However, we could boost average FPS by 42, with minimum settings. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark. The results from this test were looking excellent, even with higher settings, while the lower frame rates were above average too likely due to that out of the box. Cpu undervolt, but well, compare this title against other laptops. Shortly. Far Cry New Dawn was tested with the built in benchmark.. This game seems to be fairly CPU heavy. So with our default, CPU undervolt were actually seeing higher levels of performance than many others with higher tier 2080 Max Q graphics. 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 and well see how this one compares to some other laptops later, the results are kind of crazy. Due to the modifications, Razer are doing, you wont want to miss. Them. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature, and while I have to regularly refresh the replay due to updates I test in the same area, so results should be somewhat comparable to my past tests.
. This game runs on basically anything so were seeing very high frame rates even with epic settings, while low settings is giving us 1 lows higher than the refresh rate of the display. 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.. The 300 FPS frame cap was being hit at low settings, otherwise even maxed out at epic. We were still hitting 180 averages with high 1 lows, so it was running very smoothly.. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark. Most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this. So dont take these results as a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game its more of a worst case, but does let you perform the same test to compare against. CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark and as a game that is pretty Cpu bound the average FPS results here are above average compared to most other gaming laptops. Ive looked at lately with still over 250 FPS averages with all settings at maximum. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark and is a game Ive found to benefit from Nvidias new turing architecture.. Even with maximum ultra settings were getting great performance with 160 FPS averages and above 120 for the 1 low, so its running very smoothly. PUBG was tested using the replay feature and for the usual replay that I use the performance was looking quite good across the board.
With 110 FPS averages at ultra settings with about 20 higher for both average and 1 low at minimum settings. Assassins, Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and from my experience, seems to be a fairly CPU heavy game.. The results here are looking great again due to that CPU undervolt were getting better performance out of the box compared to most other gaming. Laptops. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane with an average amount of action going on and is yet another game that Ive found to prefer higher CPU power. So the results are once more, very impressive for this game. With almost 200 FPS averages at low settings, though not much different with higher settings, while also looking much nicer. Watch Dogs 2 loves eating up all the resources it can get a hold of, but weve got a lot to feed it here. So even at ultra settings. Above 60 FPS averages were possible and it was running very well for a game that I think you can get away with a stable 30 FPS. Ghost Recon is another resource, intensive game and was tested using the built in benchmark.. Ive said in the past that you need a very powerful laptop to actually hit 60 FPS averages at ultra well thats what weve got here, and this was pretty much achieved.. The Witcher 3 was playing great with hairworks disabled. Ive found this to be somewhat more GPU demanding at higher settings so were seeing great frame rates with our overclocked graphics, with up to 110 FPS averages even maxed out at ultra.
. Doom was tested using Vulkan and is a game that almost always gets really high frame rates. With Razer laptops by default. The performance in this title will be trash unless you disable Razer Chroma, which basically customizes the key lighting while playing. Anyway, with that off. Even ultra settings was averaging very high FPS, it played extremely well.. Strange Brigade was another game that was tested with Vulkan, and this one was also running well with the built in benchmark with ultra settings. Almost able to give us average FPS only just a little below the refresh rate of the display. Shadow of War was also tested. With the built in benchmark and is another game that Ive found to benefit from Nvidias new Turing architecture., These are some of the best results. Ive seen from this test with 100 FPS averages, even at ultra settings. Lets, also take a look at how this config of the new Razer Blade Pro 17 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 drivers. In Battlefield, 5 Ive got the Razer Blade Pro 17 highlighted in red, and we can see straight away that compared to the others, its performing extremely well., The 1 low result is putting it in 4th place. Out of these machines likely due to that CPU undervolt out of the box., The average frame rate is also second here, beating out two of the 2080 Max Q machines, probably due to the GPU overclocks and higher 100 watt power.
Limit. Here are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark.. In this test, the Razer Blade Pro 17 was in first place, both in terms of 1 low and average frame. Rate. Again, the CPU undervolt will be helping out in this CPU driven title. However, it is still very impressive that it was able to beat the ASUS GX701 as that was tested with G Sync, which gives it an edge in performance and not to mention its higher tier 2080 Max Q. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider With the built in benchmark at highest settings. In this test, the average frame rate put the Blade Pro 17 in at third place, only just slightly behind the 2080 Max Q variants of the GS75 and GX701, but was still ahead of the razer blade 15 with 2080. Max Q and our 2070 laptops., The new Razer Blade Pro 17 gaming laptop, was performing extremely well, as we saw it was easily able to hang with the higher tier 2080 Max Q laptops. Even the previously untouchable GX701 results are being challenged by a machine with lower tier specs that doesnt have G Sync.. This is because of the excellent tweaks Razer are making out of the box, including the 0.1v core voltage offset to the CPU, allowing the 2070 max q to run at 100 watts, which is above spec and GPU overclocks.. To be fair, the other machines could also be overclocked and undervolted, but Razer is doing this out of the box, which will be beneficial for the majority of people that arent going to tweak those settings.
. It would be very interesting to see how the higher tier 2080 Max Q version compares. Assuming it has similar modifications, and if it had G Sync, then this would be offering seriously killer performance.. This is the second gaming laptop Ive recently tested that came to me. Undervolted out of the box, I asked previously, if you guys thought this was an unfair advantage or if more companies should do this to boost out of the box performance.. I didnt get a single comment in favour of not undervolting its literally free performance and, in many cases, improved thermals. So I think its awesome to see – and I hope more companies pick up on this trend. Its pretty much necessary these days as Intel continue to boost the clock, speed and power of their CPUs without improving the architecture, and this is an easy improvement to help address. That. Ive still got to test the thermals out, so keep an eye out for my detailed thermal testing video, which will be coming very soon.
