The new Razer Blade maintains the aesthetics but is renewed inside to compete in power and screen.
The refresh rate reaches 300 hertz in the advanced model, thus having two basic configurations (expandable in both cases).
Inside we can see 10th generation Intel Core i7 processors, and they have the new NVIDIA RTX SUPER, thus seeking to be at the top of this year’s graphics performance level.

A jump in the refresh rate level
Although, as we said, the design broadly maintains with the first Razer Balde 15, there are some changes that, although discreet, can mean differences in the experience.
One is the change in the layout and design of the arrow keys, which are now below the shift key (and it is probably more comfortable).
The latest from Intel and NVIDIA for gaming laptops
As for the power that these computer models aspire to provide, they start from the 10th generation Intel i7-10750H processor, with six cores and a base clock speed of 2.6 GHz (and turbo mode up to 5 GHz).
For the advanced model, we start from the i7-10875H, also of the tenth generation and with eight cores (2.35 GHz with shift mode up to 5.1 GHz).
In both cases, the new series of processors from Intel remains in the 14 nm lithography.
And as we said, the graphics come from NVIDIA having the option of tasting the latest RTX SUPER.
Razer Blade (2021) price and availability
The models will be available in May, without the manufacturer having specified a day.
The starting price they have released is that of the most basic configuration of the base model, starting at $ 1,600.
We will be attentive to the information that you can give later on the availability and the price of the most basic model of the Advanced variant.
