Razer has revealed that it will be releasing a variant of the Razer Blade 15 laptop that boasts a 15.6-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) OLED display with a refresh rate of up to 240 Hz—the first of its kind, according to the company. It won’t be available for purchase until Q4 2022, but users can expect an otherwise similar hardware configuration as the recent model, which counts a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12800H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, and a 1 TB SSD among its options. The new Razer Blade 15 with 240 Hz OLED display will cost $3,499.99 when it debuts later this year.

You’ll get the high responsiveness that can provide an edge in multiplayer games, but you’ll still have a color-accurate 1440p panel (100 percent of the DCI-P3 space) with deep contrast. If the machine lives up to its billing, you could dominate the latest online shooter in one breath and edit video the next.

There will be a few compromises. The 240Hz panel isn’t particularly bright at 400 nits. You won’t want to work in bright sunlight, then. And while the risk of burn-in that comes with OLED isn’t as high as it used to be, this might not be your best choice if you regularly work with static content like photos.

  1. Is that ACTUALLY worth while though especially in a 15 inch laptop?!

    Plus a 3070ti isn't going to drive a 1440p panel at 240 hz in anything but low rent fortnight clones.

    It's all snake oil. Certainly the old 60fps rule of thumb is no longer considered anything but the most basically adequate, but anything above ~120hz is just plain snake oil.

    Yeah, fast panels may make sense from a "in the future I'll use a more badass GPU" perspective, but in a laptop, that won't be the case...
  3. It's a gaming laptop - those were always going to be about having bigger numbers on the box, not actually having a better gaming experience.

    I'm sure the influencers will gush over how buttery it looks at 240Hz.... and not show the FPS counter stuck at 72
