The RTX Razer Blade (2019)

  • Published on Feb 9, 2019
  • Dave2D review of the 2019 Razer Blade with RTX 2080 Max-Q. This is the best gaming laptop from Razer but RTX 20-series is very expensive.
    WAY Cheaper -
    With configs starting at a RTX 2060 up to a RTX 2080 MaxQ, the new 2019 razer blades bring some strong performance but keep in the mind the 10-series GPUs from last year bring incredibly strong performance for 1080p gaming still. Competing with the Aero 15 and the MSI GS65 for the best thin and light gaming laptop for 2019

    There's thermals when it's new and thermals after months of use when the garbage thermal paste job done at the factory starts wearing out... My 2017 Blade was fine when I first bought it, but had _insane_ overheating after only 8 months. I had to open it up and reapply the HORRIBLE thermal paste job done at the factory, thus voiding my warranty. This _must_ be taken into account by anyone considering a Razer laptop.
    That being said, after I applied fresh, quality thermal paste and under-volted the CPU, I achieved a 20-25 Celsius reduction and solved my overheating problem.

  • Jean-Marc San Marco

    Ok, I just got the 2070 Max-Q version. Does this run very hot or is it just my machine? Even on idle I can't put my hands on the palm rest as it is too uncomfortable. And it won't cool down even on balanced mode even while doing nothing 30minutes. I have flashed the Bios, updated all drivers. So questions to owners of the 2019 models: do your palm rest stay cool?

  • Gadget Man

    Hey dave, i compared ur gaming benchmarks from the 17 inch model to the 15 inch, and it looks like on pubg the 17 inch did 135fps and the 15 inch did 92, rest of the games are equal except for the 15 inch doing 81fps and 17 doing 76? And also apex legends was better on the 17 inch. Dont they both have same 2080maxq? Is it the better cooling or just drivers are updated on the 17 inch?

  • Dennis Schmitz

    A video performance comparison using Premiere doesn't make much sense since it doesn't make use of the GPU.
    A 1030 laptop GPU would basically perform the same as a 2080 Ti.
    Try the same using Davinci Resolve Studio and it would scale almost as good as a 3D game.

      id say so. ive owned the 2016 model and use it to this day. great performance and build quality. but also somewhat unreliable. i've had two swollen batteries. the factory charger caused really annoying static that i could hear through my studio monitors. thankfully this was remedied by buying an aftermarket charger. it was 50 bucks on amazon albeit its like 3x the size of the original one but it doesnt get as hot and no more static. overall you're not gonna find another gaming laptop with this level of build quality anywhere else and that's where its got everyone beat. I put a dbrand skin on mine that covers the logo which makes it look like a blacked out macbook so i dont look out of place when i bring my laptop to work where literally everyone has a macbook.

      EDIT: oh an i also should add that razer support is notoriously garbage. they wont send you replacement parts and force you to send your laptop back to them to be repaired if its even still under warranty so i have to buy aftermarket stuff. Also i tried upgrading my storage and the computer litteraly would not work unless it was using the factory drive. Apparently you have to go through a razer certified shop in order to have that done which is really frustrating. So yeah its kinda like a ferrari

      @Brad Hebert I got the PWR charger for Razer Blade r709 14' but that's for my 2016 laptop. Try searching your model name ( i.e "2019 Razer blade charger") on amazon. PWR probably makes one for it

    Hi Dave Lee!
    I got the notebook that I use in a competition at the company where my mother works, in which the child of employees who got the highest annual average at school (in her grade) would win the prize. It haves an Celeron and 4 Gb of shared RAM. My dream is to have a notebook that could give me total support from developer's programs (like Autodesk Maya, Fusion 360, Coreldraw...) Then I could make my own projects in computing, although I do not have the money to be able to buy the official licenses of any of these. So, I would be SO MUCH thankful if you can give me a Razer Blade 15.6 in the best version, not for luxury, but to help me develop my skills in this area of computing. I'm attending the Second Year of High School with 70% of scholarship because of my good grades. I'll be Mechanical Engineer after the school. I repeat, I would be SO MUCH greatly thankful if you can give me a Razer Blade 15.6 in the best version, to realize that dream. Please, Dave Lee...

    Picked up the 2060 model in Mercury White at Best Buy, hands down the best gaming laptop I've ever owned. Performance rivals my Predator Helios 500 with the 1070. Temp wise it's really good, the core temps do get pretty high but after Undervolting and playing with fan settings i'm comfortably at 76C on the CPU and 73C on the GPU. WASD keys are never hot and the palmwrist is much cooler than before. Overall definitely recommend 2060 if you want the "best" gaming laptop imo

    Pfff the real reason of why we shouldn't get any of the RTX series or a GTX 1080 laptop its because the ridiculously bottleneck we have because of the CPU. It's so bad that i saw in some scenarios the GTX 1070 runs games better than the RTX 2060. When we get better CPUs for the RTXs models that its going to be the time to buy them.

      yeah ive been watching a ton of videos and doing my research, but i feel like i should get the 2080 just to say i have a 2080 at this point. doesnt seem to be a huge difference at all but i might as well get the best, right?

    • Alimm71
      Alimm71 2 months ago +2

      If money isn’t an issue id say the best bet would be the 2080 model. However I recommend watching some videos about the difference between the laptop rtx models because the performance difference isnt as big as you’d expect. The laptop variants run on slower clocks so you’re not getting a real 2080 experience, but are paying the same premium price. Something to consider. I myself am saving up for the 2060 version, as that is the best value for the money.

    The 2080 is to powerful for a 1080p display, sure in some really demanding games you will be able to get more performance and some demanding ultra/max settings. But the 2080 can take so much advantage of a 4k screen with g sync, where is the blade pro update? I want a blade pro with the 2080 at 17.3"s with virtually the same thickness and design of the new 15". They better finish it and release it by the end of the year because truly that is the ultimate portable device. The blade 15 with the 2070 is the best pick because dave lee has a tiny visual mind and can't visually interpret great detail. The 2070 will be more power efficient and get virtually every game well above 60 frames 1080p at max settings. In short the Blade 14" is the best portable gaming/productivity laptop you can buy, the blade 15 with the 2070 is the ultimate cross between portability and power and the blade 17" is the ultimate portable desktop whilst keeping design and as much battery life as possible.

    The 650m Nvidia chip on my Mid 2012 15' Macbook pro decided to die leaving me to force my mac, using purge-nvda script, to only use the intel integrated chip. The laptop still works but no more gaming or video editing for me. It was a good 7 years of use. So what do I get next? I can't get an Apple certified refurbished 2012-2015 macbook pro as apple doesn't offer them anymore. I absolutely hate the 2016 and newer models. No magsafe charger, no USB type A, no SD card reader, and terrible keyboard. Hate it hate it. This razer 15 looks very attractive but I never owned a PC laptop before. What's the longevity on these razers? Is the extended warranty worth getting? And does Razer do the same horrible practice as apple by placing older hardware into vintage/obsolete and refusing to support and/or repair them?
