The long-awaited 2020 iteration of our favorite gaming laptop has arrived Razer Blade Pro 17 Gaming Laptop.
The razor blade is a thin light and powerful gtx gaming laptop, so let’s find out what’s on offer and just how well it performs.
But as a smooth surface, they are easy to clean underneath this and rubber feet which do a good job of preventing.
1) Razer Blade 15 Gaming Laptop
The laptop from sliding around while in use, as well as some air intake vents to what’s the back the two speakers, are found on either side of the keyboard.
They sound alright but for the amount of space they’re using, I expected.
A little more still clear but a bit tinny attire volumes with minimal bass the laptop can be opened up easily with the Torx screwdriver.
After removing the panel we get easy access to the single end or two slots two memory slots and the Wi-Fi card powering.
The laptop there’s an 80-watt hour battery and with a full charge. It one of the best laptops I’ve tested the Intel integrated graphics was in use during this test.
Thanks to Nvidia Optimus while playing the Witcher 3 with medium settings and invidious battery boost set to 30fps.
The battery lasted for one hour and 38 minutes and was able to sustain 30 FPS.
The entire time many others I’ve tested aren’t able to do that and drop frame rate overall the battery life was really impressive here especially when you factor in just how thin and light.
The blade is and that it’s running fairly powerful Hardware thermal testing was completed with a room temperature of 18 degrees celsius.
It’s called here at the moment is its winter in Australia so expect
warmer temperatures in a warmer environment the CPU and GPU were cooled with a vapor chamber.
It wasn’t obvious to me if this is shared between both components or not just before we go into the results.
I’ll quickly note that in the Razer Synapse software you have the option of using the default balanced mode or swapping to gaming mode gaming the mode seems to overclock the GPU call clock by 100 megahertz and memory by 300 megahertz.
Increases the power limit to the CPU I’ve tested both modes here under stress test at idle the CPU and GPU were on the warmer side above 50 degrees Celsius while playing pub G at high settings we
can see that the temperatures were as shown in green by under vaulting.
The CPU by – 0.14 volts as shown in yellow we can reduce the temperature of the CPU a little the graphics will be maxed out at 90 degrees regardless of test the full load stress tests were run using a 264.
Heav’n benchmark at the same time and I’ve tested both the balanced mode and gaming mode.
Here in balanced mode, the CPU gets a low power limit so performs less as we’ll see in the next graph.
But temperatures improve a little with the under multiplied in red. These are the average clock speeds while running the same tests for the temperature tests just shown it wasn’t possible to reach
the full 3.9 gigahertz or core Turbo clock speed in any of these tests which in the case of the stress tests was due to power or thermal limit throttling granted in pub G.
I don’t think the CPU needs to max out as it’s not a bottleneck which probably explains.
The lower clock speeds while under bolted and Yeller it just doesn’t matter maybe I should be using a different game for this test but these are the speeds and I saw no CPU throttling here with the gaming mode enabled the TDP increased.
So it seems like this affects the power limit provided to the CPU.
I wasn’t able to otherwise tweak it in Intel XT year this explains where the clock speeds rise with gaming mode enabled giving us
Also, a hotter system as we saw in the last graph under the vaulting in red and dark blue did improve things too but still not quite enough to fully remove throttling in this particular stress test.
This will, of course, differ based on the specific workload
these are the clock speeds that got while just running CPU.
Only stress tests without any GP load even with no GPU the load we’re still seeing power limit throttling preventing the full 3.9
gigahertz speed Vic gaming mode and under vaulting did help raise this as for the external temperatures where.
You’ll be putting your hands at idle with the body of the laptop this sitting in the 30s in the center and getting warmer towards the back while gaming this increases to the 50s in the center and was a little warm to the touch.
Although the left and right sides were quite cool in comparison with very similar results in the full load stress test as for the fan noise produced by the laptop listen to some of these tests at idle.
It was still audible which was expected based on the warmer idle
temperatures and then while gaming.
With the fans maxed out it wasn’t too different from many other laptops I’ve tested still a bit loud they’re balanced murdered was a little quieter than gaming murdered.
As we saw before it gets hotter in gaming murder I didn’t test
temperatures for both default fans and manually maxing out the fans.
As in gaming murdered while playing games or under stress test I found the fans to be maxed out the same regardless which would give the same results.
Finally, let’s take a look at some benchmarks, well first cover some real-world gaming benchmarks followed by tests with various benchmarking tools.
All tests were completed with the gaming mode enabled through Razer synapse software which as mentioned earlier.
Overclocks the graphics and increases the CPUs power limit resulting in increased performance fortnight ran.
At any setting level although medium all blur were needed to average around the refresh rate of the panel but results will, of course, vary based on what other players are doing in-game. Which was tested playing with the bots and it was running very well even at epic settings were averaging 144 FPS with lowest
settings giving us 1% lows near this level.
Again results here will vary based on what’s going on in the game and the map pub G was tested using the replay feature it rental right at Ultra for the most part but you’ll be better off playing at high settings of the learner and like the previous games results will
vary based on the map.
What other players are doing so was running well in all settings, 1% lows dropped down quite a bit with this particular benchmark due to the smokes Rainbow six.
The siege was tested with the built-in benchmark and even at Ultra settings.
The average frame rate was very high with the 1% lows still well above 100 FPS.
So absolutely no problems here at all I have tested Far Cry 5 with the built-in benchmark and the results are pretty good even at Ultra settings Assassin’s Creed origins were also tested with the
Again playable with all setting levels, Dota 2 was analyzed using a weak intensive replay.
This should be a worst-case scenario realistically you’ll probably get better results in this while playing and even in this intensive test.
The average is pretty decent testing battlefield 1 in the first
campaign mission ran well for me even with ultra settings, the 1% lows drop a bit although I didn’t notice any dips while playing the rise of the tumor.
I tested with the built-in benchmark and the results here are quite good high frame rates at the lowest setting levels.
More than playable with the high one’s watchdogs to don’t need a high frame rate to play in my opinion and read well live in at Ultra
settings with no much variance between ultra very high settings.
