Razer is known as a brand that specializes in the production of Gaming products and is popular among the most demanding gamers. And it recently launched its first WorkStation, the Razer Blade 15 and 17 Studio Edition, to expand the market.
Razer at Computex 2019 recently introduced two models, the Razer Blade 15 and 17 Studio Edition, the company's first WorkStation series using the most advanced NVIDIA RTX 5000 graphics card today.
Previously Razer only produced gaming hardware with powerful hardware along with extremely high quality builds that people still consider the Macbook running Window to meet the needs of the most demanding gamers. And finally, Razer expanded its product line to the WorkStation.
The Razer Blade 15 and 17 Studio Edition have mercury colors and Chroma keyboards like the Blade 15 series. I personally find RGB LEDs on WorkStation models a bit excessive because users in this segment will need only one machine. It is simple and can handle tasks well, not too important to color.
On the screen, the 15-inch version will have an OLED 4K option and touch and the 17-inch version will have an IPS 4K 120Hz screen.
Previously we have MSI also switched to WorkStation field with the WS series kept intact from WE and changed the internal hardware. Razer did the same with retaining Blade 15 and Blade 17's stereotypes, using a dedicated graphics card for good graphics. Specifically, instead of using the RTX 2070 or 2080, the device with the latest dedicated graphics card is the RTX 5000.
To be able to shoulder the other RTX 5000 card in an almost ultrabook body, we found that Razer was very confident with the gas chamber and the carbon particle cooling system. With a 15-inch version, the maximum CPU of choice is Core I7-9750H (6-core 12-threads) and with 17-inch version is Core I9 9880H (8-core 16 threads). Maximum RAM can be up to 32GB and support up to 1TB SSD NVME.
The downside is that the Razer Blade 15 and 17 Studio Edition do not offer the Xeon CPU options and do not have ECC RAM either. This is a significant disadvantage when the current three big companies in WorkStation, ThinkPad, HP and Dell, support the above.
