Razer Expands their Blade 15 Lineup


The Razer Phone 2 was not the product that fans expected at Min Liang-Tan’s Keynote. Most fans expected a new Razer Blade laptop that sports an Intel 9th Gen Processor or an RTX GPU. Instead, Razer added a Mercury White variant to the Razer Blade 15 product line.

The New Razer Blade 15 features an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GBs of DRR4 2666Mhz, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, a GTX 1060 Max-Q, and a 15.6″ 1080p 60Hz Panel. The Advanced Edition comes with a 512GB NVMe SSD,a GTX 1060/1070 Max-Q and a 1080p 144hz/4K Touch Panel. The laptops weigh below 2.10 kg

The Mercury White Edition will not have a Chroma Razer Logo like the Gunmetal version. However, it does still support Chroma Lighting on the keyboard.

Aside from the specs, the main difference between the basic and the advanced is the power connector. The advanced edition uses 200/230w which results to a proprietary connector used by Razer. The higher power consumption is due to the 144hz/4K panel and the GTX 1070 Max Q.

The Base model starts at $1,599 while the 144Hz GTX 1070 and the 4K 60hz 1070 starts at $2,399.99 and $2,499.99 respectively.
