Razer offers two 15.6-inch display options, one for content creators, and one for gamers. The gaming-oriented screen is a 1080p display with the aforementioned 300Hz refresh rate. The creator-focused option is a 4K display, meant for photographers and video editors. The Razer Blade doesn't have G-Sync, but the high refresh rate is surprisingly good at avoiding screen tearing.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Ports have changed from the 2019 Blade 15 Base Model. There is an extra USB Type-C port, and the mini-DisplayPort is now gone. Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and Bluetooth 5.1. Running 3DMark 06 or Witcher 3 draws almost the same amount of power as the Xiaomi Mi Gaming laptop with weaker RTX 2060 graphics.

-core processor is from Intel's Comet Lake generation. The processor runs the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test at 2.5 to 3 GHz. The single-thread test is run at 3.6 to 4.9 GHz. A slight increase in graphics performance can be achieved by setting the graphics performance slider within the Razer Synapse software to "High"

The 2020 version of the Razer Blade 15 doesn't evolve its design too much, but the tweaks and added features make it a more powerful gaming laptop than before. Our review configuration is very expensive, and I don't think most gamers need this lofty a loadout. Seven hours of runtime with a high-refresh screen and gaming-grade parts is a good result.

Pros
  • Sleek, high-quality design

  • Solid performance
Cons
  • Not the most powerful gaming laptop on the market

The Razer Blade 15 offers the best bang for your buck and features the best build quality. It runs quite hot after playing for a while, but it doesn't seem to choke performance. It's admirably quiet considering the power, and I have plenty of louder competition to compare it to. It might also be a little heavier and heavier than I'd like, but you have to have to somewhere.

Pros

The Razer Blade 15 has a stunning 1080p display with a 300Hz refresh rate. With the Intel Core i7 processor and an RTX 2080 Super, it has no problem chewing through all the latest and best PC games at max settings. On this laptop, you can use it to adjust performance by jumping between different power profiles and fan speed modes. The laptop doesn't exactly last all day on battery power.

The Razer Blade 15 (2020) is one of the most powerful gaming laptops on the market. It has a Full HD screen, but also offers a 4K OLED option for £300 more. You can pick up a model with a GTX 1660 Ti card for just £1699, or grab the stonkingly powerful RTX 2080 Super ‘Advanced Model’ for £3099. Despite its high price, this can be considered a mid-range gaming laptop, and goes up against the likes of the HP Omen 15 and Gigabyte Aorus 15G.

  • Powerful Full HD gaming performance
