If you’re searching for a large gaming laptop that can handle both productivity and gaming, the Razer Blade laptop 15 2018 h2 is worth considering. While it may be expensive, its components are top-notch, plus its rigid frame has minimal flex.
The 2022 version of Razer laptops doesn’t make many changes from earlier models, but it does feature slightly larger keycaps and laser-cut speaker grilles. While not quite as stylish as some other Razer laptops, this model still delivers impressive performance.

The Razer Blade laptop is an ideal option for gamers on-the-go who don’t want to lug around a bulky desktop. These thin and light gaming laptops boast AMD Ryzen CPUs with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics for uncompromising performance.
The AMD Ryzen 9 6000 series is featured in the Blade 14, a 14-inch laptop featuring both an AMD processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX Ti graphics. This combination gives gamers and creators alike all of the tools necessary to craft captivating content.
We tested the Blade 14 with Cinebench R23, a CPU rendering benchmark that uses both single-core and multi-threaded workloads to assess CPU and GPU performance. Overall, the processor performed admirably in both tests, producing an impressive single-thread score of 1495 and multi-threaded score of 13796.

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series laptop GPUs are the world’s fastest gaming laptops for creators and gamers. Built with Ampere–NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture–these laptops deliver stunning visuals as well as cutting-edge AI features like NVIDIA DLSS for an extra speed boost in games.
The Razer Blade 15 is equipped with Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake processors and NVIDIA’s latest Ti versions of GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 graphics cards, along with 16GB DDR5 RAM. Plus, it boasts a stunning 240Hz OLED display – an exciting new addition to the Razer Blade line!
Though not cheap, the 2022 model starts at $2,499 with a Core i7-12800H processor, Radeon RX 3060 graphics card and 16GB of RAM. Stepping up to the fully-loaded model will cost an extra $4,000 but is well worth it for its power and performance.

The Razer Blade laptop boasts a 12-core Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics, offering serious performance for gamers who demand more. Its thin and light chassis measures only 0.7 inches thick, making it easy to transport between home and office while providing an enjoyable gaming experience.
At $2,499, the base configuration includes a Core i7-12800H CPU, Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD and 240Hz QHD display. For an extra $100 you can get the same CPU, RAM, Storage and Display but with an RTX 3070 Ti graphics card or choose from 1080p panels that refresh at 360Hz for just slightly more money.
The panel can produce sharp, clear visuals with G-Sync technology for smooth animations and videos when run at Ultra settings. Unfortunately, its color space coverage could be better and it does not support Nvidia’s Advanced Optimus or Optimus 2.0 technologies.

When it comes to gaming laptops, the Razer Blade is unbeatably impressive. Equipped with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics, this laptop is perfect for both gamers and creators alike.
The latest RTX Ti series graphics cards are optimized to take advantage of Ray Tracing, which simulates how light behaves in real life. This provides gamers and content creators with the most believable, immersive visuals possible.
Moreover, the Razer Blade 15 comes equipped with an array of ports on its left edge: audio jack, Thunderbolt 4/US-C and two USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) ports.
The right edge of this device features a 3.5 mm audio jack, SD card slot, HDMI port and lock. I was able to charge this device quickly and without any hassle thanks to the included 230W power brick.
