Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD

I was very surprised when I touched the Razer Blade 18. And decided. As of today, we have decided to withdraw our support for Razer. Now, out of the support relationship, Laser and I become one body. A laser hit counts as an attack against you. If there were 7 billion Razer fans in the world, I’d be one of them. laser, my light. The level of completion of the Razer Blade 18 is so high that I even thought about it for a second. 18-inch display, DCI-P3 100%, Core i9-13950HX, RTX 4090, vapor chamber. amazing

The bird struggles to get out of the egg

Razer is one of the most technologically advanced gaming laptop manufacturers. It’s clearly a thin gaming laptop, but its performance has other manufacturers’ flagships sticking their tongues out. No, really, it’s not about sticking your tongue out. Razer’s high-end laptop is top of the line among current laptops. Unbelievable performance in thin thickness.

Because it’s such a laser, there really isn’t much to show. Everything is already top notch, so what else is there to show? However, the laser showed a surprising result. Introduced the 18-inch gaming laptop Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD (Lazer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD), which is more advanced than the current 17.3-inch. It’s obviously thin, but it’s closer to the desktop. Appearance and performance. Quite a few high-end gaming desktop systems are all lined up in the Razer Blade 18 line.

The Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD is an 18-inch gaming laptop. It features a T6 CNC aluminum body, QHD 240Hz display, Core i9-13950HX, RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, 16GB GDDR6 VRAM, 6 speaker sounds (4 subwoofers, 2 tweeters) and weighs 3.2kg. The current Razer Blade Pro 17 weighed around 2.5 kg, but as the size increased, so did the weight. However, performance has improved significantly to the point where it’s embarrassing to compare it to its predecessor.

The display is optimized for gaming. It’s 16:10 QHD+ resolution (2560×1600), not 4K UHD. Instead, the refresh rate was raised to 240Hz. Thanks to this, you can enjoy the game with full options in most games, and if you apply technologies like DLSS, you can enjoy the game comfortably at a higher resolution and a higher refresh rate. The quality of the display is also excellent. The color gamut is 100% DCI-P3, the maximum brightness is 500nit, and the response speed is 3ms. G-Sync technology is also used. Just look at the color gamut, it can play a role as a creator’s laptop.

Next, let’s check the system specifications. Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD has Core i9-13950HX (24 cores 32 threads, cache 36MB, up to 5.5GHz), GeForce RTX 4090, DDR5 32GB 5600MHz, NVMe 2TB SSD (PCIe 4.0 x4 maximum graphics), maximum graphics 4.0 + the power of the 4090 is 175W and the boost clock is 2040 MHz. In addition, the cooling solution has three fans and a vapor chamber is also applied. This is enough to bring out the maximum performance of the components installed in the laptop. FYI, you can also disable Optimus Mode in Display Mode Control.

From level 18 he is very handsome and he is good at games that’s why he is perfect

The Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD looks good. It’s thin like the current Razer Blade series, and the finish is close to perfect with the T6 CNC aluminum unibody material. It’s cool to the touch with a matte black finish, but it’s also soft. In particular, the edges are finished smoothly. It feels good when you fiddle with it. In addition, it is scratch resistant. The top plate is less likely to get fingerprints, and even if it does, it can be removed well. There aren’t many things that look messy. Thanks to the anti-fingerprint coating.

The display, as mentioned earlier, has a resolution of 16:10 QHD + (2560×1600) with a refresh rate of 240Hz. When I checked the color gamut myself, it was 100% DCI-P3. The screen looks bigger than when it was 17.3 inches. In terms of display size alone, satisfaction was the highest among the large screen gaming laptops reviewed so far. Big is good.

▲ Confirmed as DCI-P3 100%.

Connection ports are Thunderbolt 4 x1 (USB Type-C) supporting Power Supply 3 (100W), USB 3.2 Gen2 Supporting Power Supply 3 (100W), USB 3.2 Gen2 (Type-A) x3, HDMI 2.1 Output, SD Card UHS-II reader, Ethernet port configuration. Although it is large, it can also be charged with PD, so it can be used for office use while carrying it.

However, it is better to carry a power adapter than to charge PD. Although this adapter has a capacity of 330W, it is less than expected for its capacity. less heat This is because the adapter is made of GaN material. Portability has increased, but performance can be drawn out high.

The keyboard deserves a lot of praise. It is tenkeyless. It’s an 18-inch laptop, but it’s not a full collection, it’s display-less. But I see this as an advantage. Numeric keys in gaming laptops often sacrifice in odd places. It’s a side effect like shortening the right shift key or shortening the direction keys. There is no such thing. This is a very nice setup for gaming. In addition, the key sensitivity is suitable for games such as laser. It goes in smoothly, but the responsiveness is excellent. With a cross key, you can enjoy fighting games without any problems.

FYI, in some cases, some RGB effects are applied depending on the game. For example, when changing a character in the Overwatch 2 character selection window, the color of the keyboard changes according to the color of the character’s image. Also, if you enter after selecting a character, the RGB array changes according to the character’s skill.

Additionally, the touchpad is incredibly large. I tried putting a marker pen diagonally, but even a marker pen isn’t enough to fill them. I increased the size of the touchpad like that, but it didn’t bother me that the palm rest was reduced.

The cooling solution applied vapor chamber technology to a three fan system. Thanks to the three cooling fans and the very large vapor chamber, the heat is well controlled. Thanks to this, you can squeeze the frame out to the maximum in the game. Keep the average frame rate high.

The battery is 91.7 WHr. As mentioned earlier, it comes with a 330W power adapter. After switching the battery to save mode, I measured the remaining time and it was confirmed to be around 3 hours and 45 minutes.

Audio includes 6 speakers (4 subwoofers, 2 tweeters) and THX Spatial Audio (supports 7.1 surround sound). If the sound field effect is applied, the sound can be played through the laptop speakers, and the sound is clearly distinguished even when listening to music. The sound was not breaking even when I turned the volume up.

▲ With a sound level meter, I checked the sound while playing Beethoven’s Destiny Symphony.

The wifi is the wireless killer Wi-Fi 6E AX211. It supports the 6GHz band, and if you connect to that band, you can expect high speed and low latency. The storage device has two NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4 1TB. When I measured it with CrystalDiskMark, the storage speed was very fast.

The Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD is Core i9-13950HX, RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, 16GB GDDR6 VRAM, DDR5 32GB 5600MHz, NVMe configuration PCIe 4.0 x4 1TB x2. When testing, I changed the performance to maximum mode and disabled the built-in graphics. The operating system is Windows 11 64bit.

Running the Blender Benchmark puts a full load on the CPU. At this time, the CPU records a maximum of 100 degrees and maintains 72 degrees. Before the classroom test ends, the all-core clocks are confirmed as P-core 2.8 GHz and E-core 2.4 GHz.

Next, I measured the laptop clock and temperature while running the game. The CPU clock is 3.8GHz, the CPU temperature is 78 degrees, and the GPU temperature is 75 degrees. The temperature of the laptop is confirmed to be 49.4 degrees at the top of the keyboard and 47 degrees at the back. The top of the keyboard didn’t get very hot at 38.8 degrees. The adapter temperature is confirmed to be 53.2 degrees. It was confirmed that the noise was 50.5 dB on average.

The closest to the high-end desktop gaming system

High-end desktop gaming systems have performance, but other factors must also be high-end configurations. It should have a high resolution display, a high scan rate, a comfortable network environment, a high performance keyboard, and gaming equipment such as speakers. The Razer Blade 18 13Gen R4090 QHD was a near perfect execution of such a high-end desktop gaming system. The screen is also very large, giving it more of a desktop system feel. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to see it as a high performance desktop that can be carried around. doing so well
