Razer discreetly announces an interesting novelty for the 2022 vintage of its Blade 15: by the end of the year, a new version of the device will be equipped with a 240 Hz OLED screen. A world first.
The Razer Blade 15 is going to get even better. A few months after being updated to accommodate the latest components from Intel and Nvidia, the 15-inch giant with the three snakes is preparing for another major novelty, this time in terms of display. The brand informs us in a press release that a new version of the device will be available at the end of the year, with a QHD OLED screen (2560 by 1440 pixels) capable of reaching 240 Hz. A world first according to Razer : usually OLED display technology is nowhere near as high in terms of refresh rate.
Anyway, this new panel looks like the ideal screen for the Razer Blade 15. It will display 100% of the DCI-P3 spectrum, while limiting itself to a response time of 1 ms, promises Razer. Its maximum luminance is announced at 400 cd/m2, which remains convincing for an OLED panel. In short, for gaming, the screen wants to put the package.
A new high-end Blade 15 in every way
For the rest, this new Blade 15 will ship a Core i9-12900H (Intel Alder Lake) and a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. It should therefore develop a solid level of performance to play in QHD. This configuration is completed by 32 GB RAM (DDR5) and will benefit from 1 TB of storage (an M.2 slot will be left vacant to add an additional SSD if necessary).
The chassis does not change. There is a CNC milled aluminum frame adorned with complete connectivity (Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB-A, SD card reader and HDMI port).
On the price side, Razer is not announcing anything specific at this stage. The brand speaks in its press release of a “competitive price, relatively similar to other configurations in this range“. Same approach for the exit window, we must be satisfied with a vague indication referring us to the fourth quarter of 2022 without further details.
