Compare: Razer Blade 15 -2020 vs Dell XPS 15 9500 – 2020

In 2018 Razer presented a first Razer Blade 15 model, focused on eSports and with a much simpler design than what we saw at that time for gaming laptops. It is something that is maintained in the new Razer Blade 15, which maintains the aesthetics but is renewed inside to compete in power and screen.

The refresh rate reaches 300 hertz in the Advanced model, thus having two basic configurations (expandable in both cases). Inside we can see 10th generation Intel Core i7 processors and they have the new NVIDIA RTX 2060, thus seeking to be at the top of this year’s graphics performance level.

Dell just updated its Spring 2020 line of XPS high-performance notebooks, with two models: the XPS 15 (9500) and the XPS 17 (9700). Both have been completely redesigned with much thinner bezels and now come with a new screen format, in 16:10 that makes it look spectacular. This is not a minor update at all.

The model comes with a 15.6-inch InfinityEdge display with 16:10 aspect ratio and a WUXGA base resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) anti-glare, which can go up to 4K UHD + resolutions (3840 x 2400 pixels) InfinityEdge Touch anti-glare, both 500 Nit.

Razer Blade 15

The design is broadly maintained with the first Razer Balde 15, there are some changes that, although discreet, can mean differences in the experience. One is the change in the layout and design of the arrow keys, which are now under the shift key (and probably more comfortable).

Razer Blade 15 starts from the 10th generation Intel i7-10750H processor, with six cores and a base clock speed of 2.6 GHz (and turbo mode up to 5 GHz). For the advanced model, we start from the i7-10875H, also of the tenth generation and with eight cores (2.35 GHz with shift mode up to 5.1 GHz).

Dell XPS 15

The base memory configuration has a single 8 GB RAM module in Single Channel and can be expanded up to 64 GB of RAM in Dual Channel at DDR4 frequencies of 2933 MHz.

In the graphic section, they come with a default GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q for the XPS 15 and it is not expandable. On the XPS 17, it can be expanded up to an RTX 2060.

Storage options only include NVMe SSDs, starting with 256GB and up to 1TB capacity. Both come with Thunderbolt connectivity – the XPS 15 offers two Thunderbolt 3s, while the XPS 17 offers four. In the section on Wi-Fi connectivity, we find that both models have a Killer AX1650 WLAN network card.
