The Blade 15 Advanced looks just like the standard Blade 15 on the outside, but it's packing one key upgrade: NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX graphics for laptops. The RTX 20-series chips not only pack more power than their GTX 10-series predecessors, but they also include AI-enhancements and ray tracing, both of which can help to make your lighting look and act much more realistic in games that support the features.
The Blade 15 Advanced is available in three RTX flavors:
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB GDDR6 VRAM)
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q Design (8GB GDDR6 VRAM)
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design (8GB GDDR6 VRAM)
Other than improved graphics, the Blade 15 Advanced also packs an Intel Core i7-8750H processor and 16GB of RAM. The 15.6-inch display includes a 144Hz 1080p option or a 4K panel at 60Hz. However, the only models that appear to be launching today include the 1080p panel.
The Blade 15 Advanced is available now starting at $2,300 at Razer and retailers in the U.S., Canada, France, United Kingdom, Germany, China, and Asia-Pacific region. The base Blade will also remain available with NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics for $1,600. All Blade Advanced laptops will also come with Battlefield V and Anthem "for a limited time," Razer says.
