There are two models: A Base model and an Advanced Model for enthusiasts. The former packs a hex-core Intel Core i7-10750H and up to an NVIDIA RTX 2070 Max-Q. Both have 16GB of DDR4 RAM and the option of a 4K OLED display. The standard screen is a 144Hz FHD Matt for the Base model and a 300Hz FHD for the advanced. The Base also gets less storage and a heat pipe for cooling the processors. The Advanced variant gets up to 1TB of PCIe based SSD storage and a vapor chamber to cool Intel’s 8-core abomination.
The 4K OLED screen has an insane 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and comes in both standard and touch screen variant. The network adapter has also been upgraded to an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (Gig+) wireless, capable of up to 2.4Gbps speeds.
For connectivity, you get USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, a USB Type-C port, and a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port. Select models of Blade 15 support charging via the USB Type-C ports with a 20V USB-C charger, for emergency situations, as well as a blazing-fast UHS-III SD card reader.
