The 2018 Razor Blade 15 Comes With An Intel Core i7-8750H, Nvidia GTX 1070

Bigger Screen, Better Cooling

The 2018 Razor Blade 15 is even thinner than the previous one due to vapor chamber cooling, found in high-end graphics cards like the GTX 1080. Even though the design is slimmer you do get a 15.6-inch display as compared to the 14-inch display in the model from last year. The display can be configured to up to a 4K panel but that will cost you extra.

This is not a cheap laptop but you are getting a lot of power for the price that you are paying and then you have the Razer premium pricing as well. Inside the 2018 Razor Blade 15 you have a GTX 1070 and Intel Core i7-8750H. For 2,449.99 Euros, you also get 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD. If you want additional storage then you will need to pay an additional 200 Euros.

The CPU is limited to 35W instead of 45W but and that additional power can result in a little bit of more power but that is something that you will not feel in games keeping in mind that games are usually graphically intensive. If you are playing titles that are more CPU intensive then you might want to play around with the CPU settings but at your own risk of course. We do not advise you to do so.

2018 Razor Blade 15

If the GTX 1070 is too much for you then there is a lower spec GTX 1060 model that you can get and save some money in the process. If you are going to be gaming at 1080p then the GTX 1060 should be more than enough for your gaming needs, plus you will be able to do a bit of content creation as well.

If you are looking for a solid laptop that offers plenty of performance in terms of gaming as well as content creation and money is not object then the 2018 Razor Blade 15 is something worth looking into. This is a great device and while the price tag is pretty high, Razor is known for quality.

All in all, the 2018 Razor Blade 15 is a great upgrade if you have an older laptop and are looking for something solid that you last you a while, before your next upgrade.
