Razer Blade 15 pro model in review: High-end gaming on the go?

Razer has relaunched its razor-sharp Blade 15 gaming notebook. While not much has changed on the outside, the handy gaming machine is supposed to offer a lot of power on the inside. Above all, the graphics cards from Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30 series should make gamers’ hearts beat faster. We want to take a look at the new premium notebook from the US gaming experts. Does it live up to Razer’s promises or is it just a piece of overpriced gaming hardware? In our test, we will put the Razer Blade 15 through its paces in the most powerful version (pro model).

Our test model

Of course, the Razer Blade 15 is not an unknown newcomer in the gaming notebook market segment. The chic piece of technology has always been considered one of the most valuable laptops on the market. Not only the premium metal case is responsible for this. The simple but cool design also contributes to the high-quality look. The Blade 15 in its Early 2021 Edition is elegant and slim. However, the price of the powerful notebook is not that slim. The basic model of the Razer Blade 15 starts at 1,399.99 Euros. The advanced model, on the other hand, starts at 2,499.99 Euros. Our test notebook comes as a professional model with an MSRP of 3,099.99 Euros.

The GeForce RTX GPUs from the 30-series now work on board the premium gaming machines in the 2021 edition. Our test notebook, for example, comes with a GeForce RTX 3080. In combination with the 15.6-inch display, which has a resolution of 1080p and a refresh rate of 360 Hz, you should be able to experience wonderful gaming moments. However, the specs of the slim notebook also sound promising apart from the graphics performance. Razer provides our review sample with an Intel Core i7-10875H and a 1 terabyte SSD. Intel’s CPU is supported by a whopping 32 GB of RAM.

Scope of delivery

Besides the Blade 15 itself, only a little “paperwork” and the matching power supply are included. But that’s all you need to get started right away.

The success story goes on

It’s been a few years since Razer modernized its popular Blade 15. The revisions back then were nothing less than a design revolution. Razer’s square exterior and thin screen edges shaped not only the in-house design, but also the design of other gaming notebook manufacturers. The clunky, heavy gaming machines were no longer an alternative from then on. Instead, you could also reach for slimmer gaming behemoths. At least for those who could afford it.

The Razer Blade has always stood for an extremely slim form. That hasn’t changed with the 2021 model

In view of the groundbreaking optical changes at the time, it is hardly surprising that Razer has left the looks the same for the Early 2021 model. Whether you complain about it or not is always a matter of taste in the end. However, one thing is certain: I like this slim design that relies on understatement. Comparing the new Blade 15 with other rivals, it quickly becomes clear that Razer does not need to make any optical changes. The design is still not only high-quality, but also modern.
