There are a bunch of ways to make a laptop screen stand out these days. You can go for high resolution, high refresh rate, slim bezels, or an OLED screen for deeper blacks and vivid colors. Razer is going for a mix of all of those with a new version of its 15.6 inch gaming laptop.
Soon the Razer Blade 15 will be available with up to a 2560 x 1440 pixel OLED display with a 240 Hz refresh rate, making it the first laptop with a 240 Hz OLED screen.
That display should deliver a high contrast ratio, true black, and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. It supports up to 400 nits peak brightness and has a 1ms response time.
But the display will cost you – while the prices for a Razer Blade 15 laptop with a 12th-gen Intel Core processor and NVIDIA RTX 30 series graphics currently start at $2500, the new 240 OLED model will be priced at $3500.
For that price, though, you get more than just an impressive screen. The laptop will be powered by an Intel Core i9-12900H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics, 32GB of DDR5 memory and 1TB of storage.
There’s also a second M.2 slot that can be used for additional storage. Ports include:
- 1 x Thunderbolt 4
- 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type0C
- 3 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
- 1 x HDMI
- 1 x 3.5mm audio
- 1 x SD card reader (full-sized)
The Razer Blade 15 with a 240 Hz OLED display should be available in the fourth quarter of 2022.
