What you need to know

  • Razer's Blade 15 is getting a refresh.
  • It'll pack Intel's latest processors and NVIDIA RTX 30-series graphics.
  • It goes on sale in June starting at $2,299.

As you might expect from a refresh of a popular gaming laptop, the Razer Blade 15 is packing the latest and greatest hardware and cramming it all inside a remarkably thin design. That thinness is the Blade 15's signature detail, after all.

In terms of noteworthy benefits you can expect the latest Blade 15 to have over older models, get ready for its Intel processors (up to Core i9), RTX 30-series GPUs, PCIe Gen4 storage, and improved 1080p webcam.

There are a lot of different versions of the latest Blade 15, with the cheapest being $2,299. It'll pack a 240Hz QHD display, RTX 3060 GPU, 11th-Gen Intel Core i7-11800H processor, and 16GB of RAM. The most expensive version will set you back $3,399 and feature an OLED 4K touchscreen display, RTX 3080, Core i9-11900H, and 32GB of RAM. And between those two configs, there are a lot of middle-of-the-road options.

Expect to be paying big money no matter what for Razer's thinnest gaming laptop, but know that you can shave a few pennies (read: hundreds of U.S. dollars) off here and there if you forego things such as the touchscreen or RTX 3080. Still, if you want the tiniest possible frame for some of the world's most powerful gaming hardware, you can't do much better than the top-of-the-line $3,399 option.

The Razer Blade 15 is number one in our best gaming laptops roundup, and as seen in our review of the Razer Blade 15 Advanced, we gave it a very solid four out of five stars. It's a laptop that continues to impress, and the latest iteration looks like it'll continue that trend.
