The Blade 15 Advanced also comes with NVIDIA's latest RTX 2070/2080 Super GPUs with Max-Q design. The new chips are not only faster than NVIDIA's last RTX flagships, the RTX 2080 and 2070, but feature NVIDIA's latest efficiency-boosting Max-Q tweaks like Advanced Optimus and Dynamic Boost. That means you'll get higher frame-rates for gaming without sacrificing battery power.
The Razer's display has tiny bezels and a matte finish, and gamers can opt for a 15.6-inch 1080p display with up to a 300 Hz refresh rate. Content creators, meanwhile, can opt get one with a factory-calibrated 4K OLED touch display that covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.
Other features include WiFi6, up to 2933 MHz DDR4 memory, a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 slot, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 slots and yes! Finally an SD card slot, and one that supports UHS-III cards, to boot. You also get a backlit Razer Chroma keyboard, a compact power adapter and up to 1TB of NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 storage.

The base model starts at $1,599 with GTX 1660 Ti graphics and a 144Hz 1080p display, and goes up to $2,299 with a 4K OLED display, RTX 2070 graphics and a 512GB SSD.
