Razer has announced a new version of the Blade 15 gaming laptop

The new Razer Blade 15 laptop features the world's first OLED QHD 240Hz display and next-generation specifications, giving the Blade 15 series a small update. It has an Intel Core i9-12900H processor and an Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti laptop graphics card from the 12th generation.


The laptop's 15.6-inch display, which covers the complete DCI-P3 color gamut, has a 1ms response time and 400 nits of brightness, ensuring a lag-free gaming experience. It has 32GB of DDR5 RAM, a 1TB SSD, and an extra M.2 port for additional storage. On the sides of the laptop, you'll find Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB-A, and HDMI ports, as well as an SD card reader.

Price and when to expect
In the fourth quarter of this year, the new Razer Blade 15 will be available. The laptop will start at $3499 USD.

The Blade 15 Advanced laptop from Razer's 2019 generation came with a 4K OLED panel or a 240Hz LCD option. The display on the new Blade 15 is the best of all worlds: it has a rapid refresh rate and an OLED panel (though it isn't 4K).

Razer doesn't appear to be taking huge risks with its Blade laptop lineup for 2022, as my colleague Cameron Faulkner points out. Instead, Razer is going for minor spec bumps, following Intel and Nvidia's regular chip improvements throughout the year. In February, Razer announced the Blade 17, which starts at $2,399.99 and goes up to $4,299.99 for a 144Hz 4K display, Intel Core i9-12900H CPU, and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.


This new OLED panel, according to the firm, boasts a 1 millisecond response time, which is ideal for fast-paced games or high-frame rate video. The screen features the deep blacks that OLED technology is known for, as well as dazzling whites in images that can reach 400 nits. The new OLED panel offers a DCI-P3 color gamut of 100 percent. The 1440p IPS model we tested had a max brightness of of 232 nits, but its DCI-P3 rating of 87.1 percent was not awful.
