DESIGN & BUILD
There is a considerable difference in between sizes of both of the laptops. GX701 has a size of almost 17 inches compared to the 15 inches of Razer Blade Advanced. This difference in sizes between both of the devices also account for the quality of overall graphic arrangement. Both the devices provide you the resolution of almost 1080pixels, hence you cannot call it ultra-HD. Both of the laptops support graphic cards up to 8GB. So, you can obtain a finest quality graphic over here.
Razer is primarily designed with aluminum which looks promising in this model and in a black theme aces the ASUS’s Zephyrus GX701 which has a metallic body but is more prone to dust and damage due to an overall tar black theme. Also, GX701 supports a USB version of 3.0 but on Razer blade you get connectivity up to three different variables including HDMI and the display port in addition with USB.
DISPLAY & SPEAKERS
Both of the devices have a refresh rate of 144Hz, which is quite excellent in terms of providing the maximum quality graphics. Here again, we witness a diversity of the refresh rates but the minimum of all is 144Hz.
Although, the panel within both is of same frequency of 240Hz approx. but because of the advanced Nvidia G-Sync, picture quality over here is phenomenal. On the contrary, Razer has Thunderbolt technology as its distinguishing feature from its rival but it’s not that much efficient as compared to Nvidia.
The in-built speaker quality within Razer Blade 15 advanced is really advanced. You get to find the customized volume control over here, thus controlling the volume tones depending upon their intensity. This brings us towards the focus upon the major sounds while playing games.
KEYBOARD & TOUCHPAD
Both of the laptops have almost four sets of contrasting keys. Because of GX701’s greater size, the key cups are quite big in shape and flexibly fit over the entire finger. It consists of a turbo button which is known for its extreme high efficacy. Besides, the major control buttons are located on the keyboard over here.
On the contrary, its rival’s small size doesn’t make any impressive keyboard designs with considerably small keys and a few keys are not present over there. GX701 supports RGB back lighting, hence you can expect to find out a number of features possibly associated with the combination.
The touchpads are much similar to each other with precision files within them, the touchpad of Blade Advanced 15 is much more impressive and smooth because of the theme. It is less prone to danger and devastation.
CAMERA & BATTERY LIFE
The camera quality within both of the laptops differentiates from each other. You get to find a 1080p HD recording within GX701 that can be easily made or recorded within the laptop. On the other hand, Razer Blade 15 gives you a 720p video recording and cameras are located in the top front of screen in both.
Battery life shows a lit bit of variance in terms of usage within the domestic chores. Razer is known for its high battery life of about 5 hours which is higher when compared to its rival’s 4.6 hour battery life.
The difference between prices is quite apparent in both. Razer Blade 15 Advanced comes at a 100 bucks higher rate than that of the GX701 which starts at a range of $1000. The differences between both of them are more or less concentrated to their functions and mechanism of performance.
Undoubtedly, Razer Blade stands out as the most prominent one. The chief reason behind this is its excellent brightness level and the adjustable contrast levels. Not only this, but it is highly compatible with the Nvidia’s graphic cards in addition to the already existing Thunderbolt technology. The only problem encountered by most of the gamers is its elevated price, but we all know that all good things are always worthy.
