The RTX Razer Blade (2019)

  • Published: 09 February 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

                I've been eyeing the '19 Razer Blade for it's GPU capabilities (and other gaming laptops) for awhile to run DaVinci Resolve as my editor. Would you still advise against editing on the Blade with DaVinci?

                      True story. I got my Razer Blade 2060 yesterday, Blue Screen happened after 10 mins I open the box lol, then I exchange 2070mq model, if this happen again, I will keep away from this brand forever :)

                          I wanted to drop a word for you since I watched your video about the Blade 15 and you mentioned it’s your daily driver,
                          I recently picked up the latest 15 OLED and was having thermal issues, not so much the system but the case was uncomfortable to type or to touch, I ended up swapping 3 units all behaved the same, for some reason I wanted this unit to just work,
                          I’ve tested the GX701GX prior as impressive as I was with performance and thermal it was too big for my comfort,
                          The Blade is perfect spec wise but was far from performing comfortable day to day tasks,
                          That’s until I pulled my sleeves up and started digging in, I won’t clutter this post too much,
                          The unit arrived from factory idling around 52 with peaks to 71 with a 2200 score on CB20,
                          Now it’s idling at 34-36 which is very comfortable to work on all day long,
                          with a CB20 score of 3200 with all cores at 4000 and no thermal throttling!
                          and that on AIDA64 with every option selected and AVX on!
                          having hand on with the GX701GX, I can rest easy now knowing my unit can perform now as well if not better than the GX701GX while keeping cool all day, I can pass the magic to you if you want to try it out maybe do a short tutorial for everyone :)

                            Why buy a £5,500 MacBook pro or £7000 iMac for something that costs £2,200 and works better than the macs?

                                Mohamed Jesus I got a base model with gtx 1060 earlier this year and blue screen of death was quite frequent. 2 or 3 times per day, so I returned it.

                                But I have a friend with Razer Blade and it worked perfectly fine, until warranty expired. So he ended up with a expensive paperweight.

                                  I was thinking of buying it but I heard there are lots of issue with this laptop regarding the crashing and blue screen of death, and the heating problem too!

                                    If you live in Australia both the CPU and the GPU will thermal throttle at idle.

                                      I suggest getting the 2070 because if you get the 2060 you get the base model which means with the 2060 you get a 65 watt battery instead of the 80 watt that the 2070 and 2080 have

                                                  does this still apply for the razer blade 15 advanced? i was going to get the 2070 Max Q but do you think the 2060 is a better option?

                                                    In terms of price it's a pretty good price for the power but the difference between the advanced and the 2060 is you don't get windows hello and the key specific RGB lighting.

I want to buy a blade 15 so much I need it for 3D architecture rendering and video/photo editing but after reading reviews on Amazon and watching YouTube videos about the blade problems I’m really skeptical .... why don’t you make a video about the blade 15 and it’s problems .... I think that a lot of people that payed a lot of money are really having a problem with razer support .... idk maybe it’s not true but I would like your opinion thanks 🇬🇷✌️❤️

Is there a way to make it so that I can increase GPU usage on battery?? I have tried configuring the NVdia control panel.

So far I cant see a reason to pay more for the 2070 with maz q. Unless, does the 2070 with max q use less power and therefore extend battery life??
