Along with some substantial upgrades to the Blade Stealth 13 today, Razer has unveiled some key upgrades to the base model of the Blade 15. Not only does the base Blade 15 now come with a more powerful graphics chip, but you'll also get a choice between a 60Hz or 144Hz 1080p display.
The biggest improvement over the previous base model is the upgrade to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics. That's up from the GeForce GTX 1060 graphics available in the previous base model, and it joins the optional upgrade to GeForce RTX 2060 graphics.
The rest of the Blade 15 base model remains the same. You'll still get a 15.6-inch 1080p display, albeit with the new 144Hz option. That's backed up by 16GB of RAM, a 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H processor, and up to 512GB of SSD storage or and combination of up to 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD storage.
The new Razer Blade 15 Base model is available now starting at $1,600 at Razer's website (opens in new tab). If you need more power, you can step up to the Razer Blade 15 Advanced, which can be equipped with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, a 4K touch display, and more.
