Let’s get straight into the specs for the CPU we’ve got Intel’s eye
78758 six-core CPU which can tur­bo up to four-point one giga­hertz and sin­gle-core work­loads or 3.9 giga­hertz in all core work­loads.

The six­teen gig of ddr4 mem­o­ry run­ning at two thou­sand six hun­dred six­ty-six mega­hertz and dual-chan­nel.
All mod­els of the twen­ty eigh­teen razor are adver­tised with dual-chan­nel mem­o­ry which is great to see fit the stor­age.

There’s a 512 gig n dot two nvme SSD in the sin­gle m dot two soil
for the graph­ics, there’s an Nvidia 1070 max‑q in this mod­el but it’s also avail­able with the 1060 max Q.
As well and this pow­er is the 15.6 inch 1080p 144 hertz IPS dis­play we’ll see how this per­forms soon in the bench­marks for the net­work con­nec­tiv­i­ty their sup­port for 8o 2.11 AC Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth ver­sion 5 no Eth­er­net port here.
So you’ll need to use an adapter if you need one the
is made out of a CNC alu­minum uni­body with the black anodized fin­ish both on.
The LID and inte­ri­or it’s more of a blocky shape com­pared to the pre­vi­ous round of ver­sions mak­ing the edges a lit­tle sharp but not too bad over­all it felt nice and sol­id.
The dimen­sions of the were thir­ty-five points five cen­time­ters in width twen­ty-three-point five cen­time­ters in-depth and just one point sev­en cen­time­ters in height so quite thin con­sid­er­ing.
The specs razor list the is Wayne 2.1 kilos and my the unit was just under this with the 230-watt pow­er brick and cable for charg­ing.

The total weight increas­es to around 2.9 kilos so still quite portable as men­tioned the screen is a 15.6 inch 144 hertz 1080p IPS pan­el it’s also avail­able with a fork a touch screen.
While the 1060 mod­el also has a 60 Hertz option the bezels are just four-point nine mil­lime­ters thin on the sides as well which is a nice change from pre­vi­ous mod­els giv­ing us about 85% of
vis­i­ble screen area the view­ing angles were per­fect on any angle. Still clear with excel­lent col­ors the screen get spread enough I mea­sured it at 328 nits at 100% bright­ness with a 750 to 1
con­trast ratio the dis­play comes col­or cal­i­brat­ed and I’ve mea­sured the cur­rent col­or gamut using the spite of 5 Pro.
My results returned 97% of srgb 67% of NTSC and 72% of Adobe RGB pret­ty good results for some­thing that’s pri­mar­i­ly aimed at gamers I’ve per­formed my usu­al back­light bleed test on.
The dis­play which involves hav­ing the shows a black screen in a dark room to help empha­size any bleed­ing I then take a long expo­sure pho­to to dis­play bleed so this is a worst-case sce­nario test the bits down the bot­tom cor­ners were notice­able in this test from cer­tain angles to my eyes but for the most part it was­n’t that bad and I did­n’t notice any bleed dur­ing nor­mal use,
but this will, of course, vary between lap­tops.
There was almost no flex at all while mov­ing the dis­play it felt very stur­dy as it’s sol­id met­al and the hinge is essen­tial­ly most the length of the screen it can be opened up eas­i­ly with one fin­ger demon­strat­ing a fair­ly.
Even weight dis­tri­b­u­tion above the dis­play in the cen­ter is a 720p cam­era it’s good
the Razr was able to fit it here despite the thin­ner bezels rather than hav­ing it down the bot­tom the cam­era looks alright a bit bet­ter than many oth­er lap­tops.

I’ve test­ed the micro­phones also not bad but you won’t judge both for your­self the key­board has RGB back­light­ing which can be con­trolled at the indi­vid­ual key lev­el through Synapse soft­ware.
There are sev­er­al built-in effects avail­able and I found that in sup­port­ed games.
The key light­ing would auto­mat­i­cal­ly change for exam­ple while play­ing over­watch.
The keys change to reflect the hero­in use there’s no Numpad which.
I pre­fer is I don’t use it allow­ing the key­board to be cen­tered the keys felt nice to type with and were qui­et here’s how they sound to try and give you an idea.
the key­board had min­i­mal flex while push­ing down fair­ly hard over­all it was quite sullen due to that met­al body.
The glass touch­pad felt extreme­ly smooth and was nice and large he uses pre­ci­sion dri­vers which are my favorites are all I found it to work very well mov­ing on to the iron on the left viz the pow­er
input 2 USB 3.1 type‑a ports and a 3.5‑millimeter audio com­bo jack on the right.
There’s a Type C Thun­der­bolt 3 port third USB 3.1 type‑a port HDMI 2.0 P out­put mini Dis­play­Port 1.4 out­put and Kens­ing­ton lock razor note that up to 3 dis­plays can be run at once using Thun­der­bolt mini Dis­play­Port and HDMI.
It’s also worth not­ing that the pro­pri­etary pow­er con­nec­tor is
reversible and works, either way, the front just has a green sta­tus LED towards the right, while the back has noth­ing view­able there
exhausts are just below.
Here on the black met­al lid does the logo in the cen­ter and alights up green while pow­ered on fin­ger­prints show up quite eas­i­ly.

But as a smooth sur­face, they are easy to clean under­neath this and rub­ber feet which do a good job of pre­vent­ing.
The from slid­ing around while in use, as well as some air intake vents to what’s the back the two speak­ers, are found on either side of the key­board.
They sound alright but for the amount of space they’re using, I expect­ed.
A lit­tle more still clear but a bit tin­ny attire vol­umes with min­i­mal bass the can be opened up eas­i­ly with the Torx screw­driv­er.
After remov­ing the pan­el we get easy access to the sin­gle end or two slots two mem­o­ry slots and the Wi-Fi card pow­er­ing.
The there’s an 80-watt hour bat­tery and with a full charge. It one of the best lap­tops I’ve test­ed the Intel inte­grat­ed graph­ics was in use dur­ing this test.
Thanks to Nvidia Opti­mus while play­ing the Witch­er 3 with medi­um set­tings and invid­i­ous bat­tery boost set to 30fps.
The bat­tery last­ed for one hour and 38 min­utes and was able to sus­tain 30 FPS.
The entire time many oth­ers I’ve test­ed aren’t able to do that and drop frame rate over­all the bat­tery life was real­ly impres­sive here espe­cial­ly when you fac­tor in just how thin and light.
The is and that it’s run­ning fair­ly pow­er­ful Hard­ware ther­mal test­ing was com­plet­ed with a room tem­per­a­ture of 18 degrees
Cel­sius.
It’s called here at the moment is its win­ter in Aus­tralia so expect
warmer tem­per­a­tures in a warmer envi­ron­ment the CPU and GPU were cooled with a vapor cham­ber.
It was­n’t obvi­ous to me if this is shared between both com­po­nents or not just before we go into the results.
I’ll quick­ly note that in the Synapse soft­ware you have the option of using the default bal­anced mode or swap­ping to gam­ing mode gam­ing the mode seems to over­clock the GPU call clock by 100 mega­hertz and mem­o­ry by 300 mega­hertz.

Increas­es the pow­er lim­it to the CPU I’ve test­ed both modes here under stress test at idle the CPU and GPU were on the warmer side above 50 degrees Cel­sius while play­ing pub G at high set­tings we
can see that the tem­per­a­tures were as shown in green by under vault­ing.
The CPU by — 0.14 volts as shown in yel­low we can reduce the tem­per­a­ture of the CPU a lit­tle the graph­ics will be maxed out at 90 degrees regard­less of test the full load stress tests were run using a 264.
Heav’n bench­mark at the same time and I’ve test­ed both the bal­anced mode and gam­ing mode.
Here in bal­anced mode, the CPU gets a low pow­er lim­it so per­forms less as we’ll see in the next graph.
But tem­per­a­tures improve a lit­tle with the under mul­ti­plied in red. These are the aver­age clock speeds while run­ning the same tests for the tem­per­a­ture tests just shown it was­n’t pos­si­ble to reach
the full 3.9 giga­hertz or core Tur­bo clock speed in any of these tests which in the case of the stress tests was due to pow­er or ther­mal lim­it throt­tling grant­ed in pub G.
I don’t think the CPU needs to max out as it’s not a bot­tle­neck which prob­a­bly explains.
The low­er clock speeds while under bolt­ed and Yeller it just does­n’t mat­ter maybe I should be using a dif­fer­ent game for this test but these are the speeds and I saw no CPU throt­tling here with the gam­ing mode enabled the TDP increased.
So it seems like this affects the pow­er lim­it pro­vid­ed to the CPU.
I was­n’t able to oth­er­wise tweak it in Intel XT year this explains where the clock speeds rise with gam­ing mode enabled giv­ing us
more pow­er.
Also, a hot­ter sys­tem as we saw in the last graph under the vault­ing in red and dark blue did improve things too but still not quite enough to ful­ly remove throt­tling in this par­tic­u­lar stress test.
This will, of course, dif­fer based on the spe­cif­ic work­load
these are the clock speeds that got while just run­ning CPU.
Only stress tests with­out any GP load even with no GPU the load we’re still see­ing pow­er lim­it throt­tling pre­vent­ing the full 3.9
giga­hertz speed Vic gam­ing mode and under vault­ing did help raise this as for the exter­nal tem­per­a­tures where.

You’ll be putting your hands at idle with the body of the this sit­ting in the 30s in the cen­ter and get­ting warmer towards the back while gam­ing this increas­es to the 50s in the cen­ter and was a lit­tle warm to the touch.
Although the left and right sides were quite cool in com­par­i­son with very sim­i­lar results in the full load stress test as for the fan noise pro­duced by the pelea lis­ten to some of these tests
at idle.
It was still audi­ble which was expect­ed based on the warmer idle
tem­per­a­tures and then while gam­ing.
With the fans maxed out it was­n’t too dif­fer­ent from many oth­er lap­tops I’ve test­ed still a bit loud they’re bal­anced mur­dered was a lit­tle qui­eter than gam­ing mur­dered.
As we saw before it gets hot­ter in gam­ing mur­der I did­n’t test
tem­per­a­tures for both default fans and man­u­al­ly max­ing out the fans.
As in gam­ing mur­dered while play­ing games or under stress test I found the fans to be maxed out the same regard­less which would give the same results.
Final­ly, let’s take a look at some bench­marks, well first cov­er some real-world gam­ing bench­marks fol­lowed by tests with var­i­ous bench­mark­ing tools.
All tests were com­plet­ed with the gam­ing mode enabled through synapse soft­ware which as men­tioned ear­li­er.
Over­clocks the graph­ics and increas­es the CPUs pow­er lim­it result­ing in increased per­for­mance fort­night ran.
At any set­ting lev­el although medi­um all blur were need­ed to aver­age around the refresh rate of the pan­el but results will, of course, vary based on what oth­er play­ers are doing in-game irva. Which was test­ed play­ing with the bots and it was run­ning very well even at epic set­tings were aver­ag­ing 144 FPS with low­est
set­tings giv­ing us 1% lows near this lev­el.
Again results here will vary based on what’s going on in the game and the map pub G was test­ed using the replay fea­ture it rental right at Ultra for the most part but you’ll be bet­ter off play­ing at high set­tings of the learn­er and like the pre­vi­ous games results will
vary based on the map.
What oth­er play­ers are doing so was run­ning well in all set­tings, 1% lows dropped down quite a bit with this par­tic­u­lar bench­mark due to the smokes Rain­bow six.
The siege was test­ed with the built-in bench­mark and even at Ultra set­tings.

The aver­age frame rate was very high with the 1% lows still well above 100 FPS.
So absolute­ly no prob­lems here at all I have test­ed Far Cry 5 with the built-in bench­mark and the results are pret­ty good even at Ultra set­tings Assas­s­in’s Creed ori­gins were also test­ed with the
built-in bench­mark.

Again playable with all set­ting lev­els, Dota 2 was ana­lyzed using a weak inten­sive replay.
This should be a worst-case sce­nario real­is­ti­cal­ly you’ll prob­a­bly get bet­ter results in this while play­ing and even in this inten­sive test.
The aver­age is pret­ty decent test­ing bat­tle­field 1 in the first
cam­paign mis­sion ran well for me even with ultra set­tings, the 1% lows drop a bit although I did­n’t notice any dips while play­ing rise of the tumor.
I test­ed with the built-in bench­mark and the results here are quite good high frame rates at the low­est set­ting lev­els.
More than playable with the high one’s watch­dogs to don’t need a high frame rate to play in my opin­ion and read well live in at Ultra
set­tings with no much vari­ance between ultra very high set­tings.
