Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, What’s Different About Studio Edition

Razer has a reputation to stand out above the rest particularly in the gaming industry. Winning numerous prestigious awards over the past decade, they have built a variety of high-quality gaming systems, software, and accessories. But they surprised everyone when they went outside their genre and put together another extensively powerful portable designed, not for gamers, but for the creatives. Whether you’re a photographer, filmmaker, video editor, or music enthusiast, Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is the laptop of your dreams.Blade 15 is the best laptop for gamers right now but with loads of hardware enhancements, the Studio Edition is a special and extremely powerful edition built especially for creative professionals. With the identical design, both look indistinguishable on the outside but there is so much difference internally. Blade Studio is a powerhouse of robust hardware, with an ultra-fast processor, ample amount of RAM and storage space, impressively vibrant, clear, and colorful display, and with the most expensive piece of hardware inside – the GPU.[1] With all these, it is no surprise that Blade Studio’s price tag is significantly higher than Blade 15’s. While Blade 15 does not come cheap with its advanced model costing as much as $3299.99, it’s still nothing compared to Blade Studio’s jaw-dropping price of $4299.99, almost twice the price of its main competitor, the 16-inch Macbook Pro. We’ll discuss the key components in detail next to see if the price tag is indeed justifiable.


Blade Studio’s display is impressively rich in vibrant and vivid colors. Its wide 15.6-inch screen comes standard with a 4K OLED touch display and with its 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, it has a wider color coverage than the normal consumer video standard. In a nutshell, DCI-P3 color gamut is the standard used in film-making, which means it does not only have more colors than the other standards, the colors are also more accurate. With all these display specs, Blade Studio apparently outshines the display quality of an ordinary laptop. To top it all, the display is factory calibrated ensuring the best quality for its target audience.


Blade Studio has an ultra-fast processing speed. With the power of 10th gen 8-core Intel i7 10875H, 5.1 GHz processor, and 32GB DDR4 RAM running in the background, the processing speed is faster than the blink of an eye. Furthermore, the RAM is upgradeable to 64GB and it has a massive storage space of 1TB SSD.

Another component that makes it exceptional is the cutting-edge (and don’t forget expensive) GPU – NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Studio Edition.  Armed with 16GB GDDR6 VRAM, 3072 Cuda cores, 48 ray-tracing cores, this GPU gives a peak performance of 9TF,[2] making photo and video processing run smoothly without any lag. Combined with NVIDIA’s Studio drivers, this is probably the biggest upgrade in the Blade Studio edition. Another great thing worth mentioning about this GPU is, despite its incredibly powerful performance, it does not consume a lot of power. In fact, there is nothing special about Blade Studio’s charger which is just the regular 270W.

The battery life is also unexpectedly long for a laptop with premium hardware components. On an actual test done by playing a looped 1080p video, Blade Studio ran for almost 7 hours on battery.[3] This only shows how power-efficient the hardware installed in the Blade Studio is.


Blade Studio’s design is simple yet sophisticated. It is considerably compact, lightweight, and portable despite the type of hardware components enclosed in its sturdy, aluminum chassis. Weighing 4.85 lbs, this mobile workstation is easy to carry wherever you go. It has flexible connectivity features with more rooms for different types of ports – a memory card reader, USB-C (Thunderbolt 3), USB 3.2 (USB-A), an HDMI port, two USB-A ports, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo port. Despite the wide array of ports, it is still incredibly slim. Finally, the Mercury white color enhances the premium laptop’s simple but elegant look.

Other Features

Blade Studio has other first-rate features worth noting. It is loaded with Windows Pro OS and has a backlit per-key RGB keyboard powered by Razer Chroma. It also comes with Intel Wireless-AX201 (802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax), and Bluetooth 5.1. It has a built-in IR HD webcam (1MP/720p) which is compatible with Windows Hello. In addition, it has security features like the fingerprint sensor for added security when logging in, and to thief-proof the rather expensive laptop, it also has a Kensington security slot.
