Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

PERFORMANCE – TEMPERATURES AND NOISE

When buying a thin gaming laptop, you must accept some draw backs. Mainly heat and noise. To see how hot and noisy the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition is when being pushed I played a bunch of games and both measured the noise as well as recorded the temperatures on the GPU and the CPU.

Overall I think the Razer laptop performs well. Yes, a few times I noticed the CPU reaching high temperatures but in all cases it was just for a few seconds and the average temperature was lower. So while 95-96C sounds high the actual average temperature seemed to be closer to 83 – 88 C.

As for the noise you of course can hear the fans but at least it is not an annoying sound and just a regular whooshing sound.
