Razer announces new Blade 15 Advacned and updated Blade 15 laptops

Razer has announced it’s follow up to one of the best gaming laptops on the market today, the Razer Blade 15. The new Blade Advanced features Intel’s 11th-Gen H-Series CPUs and Nvidia’s RTX 30-Series GPUs. You can configure a Blade 15 with up to an Intel Core i9 11900H that clocks 2.5GHz – 4.9GHz, an Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU that has 16GB of video memory and a 4K multi-touch display.

Razer Blade laptops historically come in Black (Razer Book and Studio models come in Silver) and black devices can be real fingerprint magnets (looking at you Surface Pro X). Razer has a new fingerprint-resistant coating now on all models. As with most new PCs these days, their built-in webcams are getting a quality bump and Razer is doing the same by bumping the quality to 1080p, up from 720p.

The chassis is now thinner and Razer says the Blade 15 advanced is 15.8mm thick and claims it is the smallest 15-inch gaming laptop with an RTX GPU. The new thinner chassis is only available on the Blade 15 advanced model that comes with the RTX 3060 if you want more performance, then the chassis will be as thick as the last generation laptop.
