Testing and Performance – CPU
In the Multi Core test of Cinebench R23 the Razer Blade does a reasonable job, provided you give it enough power to work correctly, however it is trounced by the competition.
In the Single Core test of Cinebench R23 we see that power plays little part in the equation and the Razer Blade performs well.
Blender 3.1 goes the same way as Cinebench R23 and the limitations on power are clear for us to see.
The CPU element of 3D Mark Time Spy is interesting as it allows the Razer Blade to stretch its legs. We do not understand how it manages to beat the faster MSI Raider but score one for Razer.
BAPCo CrossMark tests the whole system and we can see the impact of restricting power to both the CPU and the GPU as the results are fairly dire for the new Blade.
