Razer’s Last-Generation Blade 15 With An RTX 3080 Ti GPU Drops To A New Low With Its Latest $300 Discount

Razer has always targeted consumers with deep pockets regarding its Blade series of gaming laptops, but the biggest perk of these machines is that their price can plummet nearly immediately after the arrival of its refreshed model. On this occasion, the Razer Blade 15 might be equipped with a two-generation old Intel processor and an RTX 3080 Ti GPU, but it is every bit as capable. With its latest $300 price cut on Amazon, it has slithered its way into the ‘somewhat affordable’ category of high-end laptops.

If you must know, the Blade 15 is equipped with a 12th-generation Intel Core i7-12800H (14-core CPU, six performance and eight efficiency cores), along with 32GB of DDR5 RAM and a 1TB PCIe NVMe Gen 4 SSD. In terms of build quality, Razer employs the use of CNC aluminum and incorporates precise machining to make the Blade 15 comparable to Apple’s portable Mac family. In short, the chassis is one of the strongest you will ever see, hence the premium charged by the company.

The display is a 15.6-inch 1080p 360Hz IPS LCD that is perfect for eSports titles, with the 14-core Intel CPU and RTX 3080 Ti GPU pairing a lethal combination for churning out those framerates. In fact, at this resolution, you will come nowhere close to using that 16GB GDDR6 framebuffer of the graphics processor, so you get to futureproof the Blade 15 for a few years. To keep everything cool, Razer has used a vapor chamber, which also allows it to use a thinner chassis design.

Assuming you live in a surrounding with a hot climate all year round, you can look into undervolting both the CPU and GPU to lower temperatures and increase the lifespan of your gaming laptop. The ports selection is more than adequate and includes a Thunderbolt 4 input if you want to get the most versatility when it comes to connectivity. The Blade 15 will also cater to content creators quite nicely, thanks to the inclusion of a full-sized SD card reader.

You also do not need to upgrade your RAM for a while, but if you want all of your programs and games installed on that 1TB of storage, you will likely be looking at additional M.2 PCIe NVMe Gen 4 SSD purchases. For the time being, these upgrades are affordable, but we recommend that you pick out what you need as quickly as possible, as NAND flash prices are slowly increasing, which will make things difficult from an affordability standpoint.
