Why do some of the internal components look different than images I have seen online?

Due to the overwhelming demand for the Razer Blade 15, we investigated ways to increase production output without impacting the performance.

Both designs, the black and copper vapor chambers with the thermal pads, offer the same performance. We apologize for not clearly communicating these manufacturing changes. Our marketing materials are being updated to reflect these changes.

Software

What is Nvidia Surround? Which ports on Razer Blade laptops and Cores compatible with Nvidia Surround?

Nvidia Surround allows users to extend their gaming experience across multiple displays to expand sound and vision. Compatibility will vary depending on the Nvidia GPU.

For the Razer Blade line, Nvidia Surround is a feature available on supporting GPUs that allow displays connected directly to ports that are wired to the GPU. This creates an immersive gaming experience for users through sound and vision.

For instance, on the Razer Blade 15” (2018), a user may connect up to two displays directly into the Razer Blade 15” (2018), to utilize Nvidia Surround via the HDMI and Mini DisplayPort. The USB-C port on the Razer Blade 15” (2018) is not supported as it is connected to the Intel chip.

Check out the list of compatible GPUs.

What is compatible with Nvidia Surround?

Compatibility extends to ports that are wired directly to Nvidia GPUs on supported Razer systems such as the Razer Blade 15” (2018) Advanced Model. You can connect a Razer Core with an Nvidia Surround compatible GPU to the USB-C port and still get Nvidia Surround through the displays or monitors that are connected to the Razer Core. However, if you connect a display or monitor to the USB-C directly, Nvidia Surround will then not be compatible to that display or monitor as USB-C is not connected to the GPU, but rather the Intel CPU chip.

When connected directly into the Razer Blade 15” (2018) Advanced Model with Max-Q, compatible ports include:

  • HDMI

  • Mini DisplayPort

Note for Core X: The Core X connects via USB-C, but the monitors will be connected to the GPU directly in the Core X unit, and therefore can take advantage of the Nvidia Surround feature.

Non-Compatible display or data ports:

  • USB-C

  • USB 3.1

For more information on Nvidia Surround, you may visit Nvidia’s website.

You may check out Nvidia’s list of system requirements and compatible GPUs on their website.
