Its not easy trying to find out how well today’s laptops compare against other mobile gaming solutions. This review will take a look at the Razer Blade 15 2020 i7-10875H RTX 5000 32GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 4K and compare it against today's current demanding games. We will also be working out how its release price relates to the performance of the laptop, to give us a guide on how well the Razer Blade 15 2020 i7-10875H RTX 5000 32GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 4K hardware compares to other laptops available today.
Is the Razer Blade 15 2020 i7-10875H RTX 5000 32GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Good
Processor - The Core i7-10875H 8-Core 2.30GHz is an excellent gaming CPU for 2021. AAA games often need extra cores to run smoothly and minimise bottleneck. This laptop processor has 8 cores, which is excellent for modern gaming.
Graphics Card - This laptop comes with a good choice of graphics card capable of running lots of 2021 AAA games. Loaded up with a huge amount of VRAM, this GPU has 16GB, which makes it excellent for AAA gaming.
System Memory - This laptop system memory is excellent at meeting today’s 2021 system requirements demands and with its 32GB of RAM it will certainly meet the requirements of games into the near future as well.
Screen Size - This laptops screen dimensions create a good balance between portable and visually suitable, when considering your next gaming laptop. With 17 inch currently being the more preferable for gaming, a lot of people will prefer the smaller form factor on offer with this 15.6" screen. Look to the 17 inch laptops for a better physical screen size, so you can enjoy the games more clearly. That is our normal ideal gaming laptop screen size.
Refresh Rate - Look for higher refresh rate hertz for a gaming laptop. Ideally around 120Hz or more refresh rate on a gaming laptop screen. The laptop can only deliver FPS(frames per second) up to the listed refresh rate. So if you have hardware in your laptop that can turn out awesome frame rates on all the latest AAA titles, but a 60hz refresh rate, your laptop will be stuck at a maximum of 60FPS in all games. Refresh rates are tied to the laptop’s screen. This laptop has an ok refresh rate for modern gaming but at 60Hz it could restrict FPS if the laptop was capable of delivering more than the refresh rate.
The big one in any gaming PC is making sure the graphics card is up to the task of modern gaming. And this is of course the same for choosing the right gaming laptop as well. Therefore we will be considering this laptop’s hardware in relation to its overall price and how well it could run modern demanding or popular games like Grand Theft Auto VI, Battlefield 6 and Resident Evil 8. This is done in relation to its native 4K resolution at Ultra video settings to give us something to compare against other laptops. Coming loaded with the Quadro RTX 5000 (150W) 16GB Mobile, this laptop is capable of beating 492 games at their minimum system specs and 355 games at their recommended system specs. This is when looking at today’s top 500 most demanding games.
Have you been looking for the best gaming laptop for your buck? Well you have probably encountered what we have, which is that, only certain laptops are normally reviewed and even then the review is often using games that are now getting out of date. So we decided to factor in all permutations of the Blade 15 2020 model range and compare them against the price adjustments those hardware variations incur when you change a GPU, for example. And so we have created this Razer Blade 15 2020 i7-10875H RTX 5000 32GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 4K laptop price to performance review with a P2P rating to help standardise our comparisons.
A 3.5 P2P score rating out of 10 has been allocated today to the Razer Blade 15 2020 i7-10875H RTX 5000 32GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 4K. This value will adjust automatically as hardware and modern performance requirements from laptops improve over time. Looking at how this configuration of the Blade 15 2020 laptop compares against other laptops within its range we can see it currently is placed at the 9th spot. Those laptops that are closer to the top 1st place of the model range are considered better gaming laptops regarding performance and laptop price.
