Razer has released two models with 240Hz/QHD resolution as winter 2021 models, including the 15-inch “Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model” gaming notebook PC. Last time, I reviewed the top model Core i9-11900H / 32 GB Memory / 1 TB SSD / RTX3080 / 4K OLED, but it’s an outstanding machine for content creators in terms of display specs. This new configuration model is a machine that runs the PC gaming highway by incorporating a discrete GPU “NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070/3080” for notebook PCs with a high definition display called QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels). Let’s discuss the following Laptop Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model QHD Reviews.

The lineup consists of 8 models that let you choose your own favorite laptop machine

The 2021 Razer Blade 15 follow-up model currently has a lineup of eight models with different displays, discrete GPUs, CPUs, memory and storage.

There are two types of QHD models this time.

And this is the top model:

Razer-marked keyboard, compatible with the highest-end “G-SYNC” and smooth gaming graphics.

This keyboard is very high quality because it is a notebook PC made by Razer which is also a keyboard maker. The actual key pitch measures about 19 mm, and the keystroke actually measures around 1.5 mm, which is average for a notebook PC, but the rigidity of the body is firmly secured. The sound of the buttons when pressed is also low unless the press is very strong.

Effectively making use of 15.6 inches of body space, all character keys are arranged in the same width, so you can reach any key naturally. This is the perfect keyboard for long text input as well as for gaming.

The touchpad also has an area of ​​130 x 80 mm, making it easy to operate gestures. In addition, the high-precision glass has a smooth and low finger slip and has a light click feeling. Of course, if you want to play games, you should have a decent gaming mouse, but for general business and personal use, this touchpad should suffice.

The detailed specifications of the 15.6-inch display with a refresh rate of 240Hz and QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) are not listed on the official website of this product, but are actually measured by the “i1 Display Pro” color calibration tool and the “Color AC” diagramming software chromaticity. However, I can confirm the color gamut with 100% sRGB coverage. It has an above average color gamut for a high refresh rate display.

This display is “NVIDIA G-SYNC” compatible and reduces tearing, stuttering, and input delays. Not only is it fast in terms of specifications, but it also guarantees that it will feel smooth when you actually play the game.

Since the previous Core i9-11900H / RTX3080 models were 12321pts, 4783pts, 2033cb, CPU benchmark scores are all about error differences. This time it’s Windows 11, but maybe the engine has been optimized and the performance of the entire series has improved.

Since the Core i9-11900H/RTX3080 model ran on the “BBench” battery benchmark for 5 hours and 58 minutes, it seems likely that a Core i7-11800H/RTX3080 equipped machine will achieve the same battery life under the same conditions.
