    Is there no option in Synapse for the 2019 Razer Blade 15 to force dedicated gpu only? There is no option like this below....

    In 2019, the 'GPU Mode' option was only available on the Blade Pro 17 4k120 and the Optical Switch Blade 15.

    Early users on Reddit have reported it is also available on the 2020 Blade 15 advanced but not sure about the basic.

    Well that’s a huge bummer! Do you think it’s hardware or can it be implemented through bios/software later?

    Unfortunately, this setting requires a hardware mux switch that does not exist on the other Blades. It cannot be implemented via software alone.

    If it were me, I would return it unless I got a killer deal. I value a fully switchable GPU a lot. The other features are gravy.

    Thanks! I will go ahead and return it since it will only cost me $200 more for the latest cpu, 300Hz screen, and of course the switchable GPU.

    No question $200 would be worth it for me. The resale value alone is probably worth that if you plan to upgrade again in a couple years.
