Razer’s new Blade 15 is the world’s first laptop with a 240Hz OLED display

Razer has announced a new version of its 2022 Blade 15 gaming laptop, the first laptop in the world to feature an OLED panel with a 240Hz refresh rate. Yes, you read that right, now the laptop has an OLED display with a 240Hz refresh rate.

Laptops with OLED displays have always been a rarity, although we’ve seen them more and more in recent years, and in particular many 2022 laptops. However, when we looked at them, they were still viewed as a more premium experience for creators rather than gaming. The same was the case with previous models of the Razer Blade 15, where you could get a 4K 60Hz OLED display, or opt for an LCD with higher refresh rates for gaming.

The initial lineup of configurations for the Razer Blade 15 omitted the OLED option, but now it’s here and better than ever. It’s a 15.6-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) panel, and the fact that it’s OLED means you get the usual benefits like a much higher contrast ratio, vivid colors, and true blacks. There’s also another advantage for gamers – a 1ms response time for the panel, which makes it ideal for split-second reactions. Plus, the panel reaches 400 nits of typical brightness and it covers 100% of DCI-P3, so it’s still a solid choice for building materials.

Apart from the new display, it is essentially identical to the existing Razer Blade 15. Notably, this model is equipped with an Intel Core i9-12900H processor with 14 cores and 20 threads, as well as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU. Be more than fast enough to play any modern game for the foreseeable future. You also get 32GB of slotted DDR5 RAM and a 1TB SSD, with a free M.2 slot giving you room to add another one if you need more storage.

This OLED model of the Razer Blade 15 will be available soon and will be priced at $3,499, which seems like a very reasonable price compared to the other Blade 15 models. There doesn’t seem to be a huge premium to pay for an OLED model, so it may be a logical choice for many. You can see all available models on Razer’s website.
