Razer Blade 15 (2019) under test: Alu gaming notebook with much more performance

Technical data at a glance
A year ago, Razer jumped from 14.0 to 15.6 inches on the blade. The larger form factor did the Razer Blade 2018 well in the test, in view of the high price and excellent implementation and processing in many places, the cooling system on the desktop was still negative.
For the launch of Nvidia Turing-based GeForce RTX mobile GPUs, Razer first updated the new Razer Blade in January. Adjustments, however, have focused exclusively on two aspects: the GPUs and the case.
With the GPUs, the GeForce RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 Max-Q now come with three options and one of them is much stronger than its predecessor. And the case is now always 17.8 mm thick and thus 0.5 to 1.0 mm thicker than its predecessor.
On the CPU, the ports and the displays, however, has nothing to do with the update in January, so the findings from the test of the Razer Blade 15 2018 from a year ago continue to be valid. This test is dedicated to the core of the now maximum possible gaming performance and the cooling system, which again has to dissipate up to 50 watts more power loss.
Three performance levels in Razer Synapse
Razer's Synapse software suite also lets you customize the new Blade 15 in performance. Three profiles are available: "Balanced", "Gaming" and "Creator". What do you do in detail? Neither Synapse nor the Reviewer's Guide nor Razer reveal that on demand. Tests in applications and games, however, bring the adjustments to light: they affect the CPU and (via the cooling system) the GPU.
"Balanced" limits the CPU to 35 watts TDP, while "gaming" and "creator" allow the full 45 watts. With less fast-spinning fans, "balanced" versus "gaming" also puts the temperature shackles on the GPU: In Kingdom Come: Deliverance (UHD), the Razer Blade 15 reaches only 1,150 MHz ("balanced") instead of 1,250 MHz ("gaming"). ) because it hangs at 76 ° C in the temple limit. The volume drops perceptibly lower at 38 to 44 decibels.
"Creator" is in games at 42 decibels and in between. This is surprising, because the GPU reaches only 1,100 MHz at 70 ° C and therefore consumes less. In this mode, the hamper is therefore apparently in the TDP of the graphics card.
So it makes a difference in which mode the Razer Blade 15 is operated. However, Razer should explain the background in Synapse to the savvy user rather than conceal it from the press department.
