Last month, Razer refreshed the Blade 15 with Intel Comet Lake H-series processors and Nvidia RTX Super graphics. That laptop was meant for gaming, but today Razer also refreshed the Studio Edition of the Blade 15, with hardware geared more towards creative professionals.
The CPU is the same as what you’d get in the latest Razer Blade 15 Advanced, and that’s the Intel Core i7-10875H with eight cores and and a 2.3GHz base clock that can boost up to 5.1GHz. For graphics, you get Nvidia’s workstation-oriented Quadro RTX 5000, which has 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, double what you’d get from the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q in the Blade 15 Advanced.
The RAM is also doubled in the Studio Edition, going from 16GB to 32GB of DDR4 RAM in a dual-channel configuration. For the most part, the rest of the specs match what you’d get on the Blade 15 Advanced, with 1TB of SSD storage, a Windows Hello IR Camera, Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6, and a UHS-III SD card reader, and support for charging with the USB Type-C port.
Unlike other models of the Blade 15, the Studio Edition only offers a 4K OLED option with a 60Hz refresh rate, with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and custom calibration for each panel. While the refresh rate is not mind-blowing, the display does have a low 1ms response time, so it should feel pretty responsive.
The new Razer Balde 15 Studio Edition is available starting today and it costs $4,299.99 in the United States or €4,599.99 in Europe.
