Latest Razer Blade Pro 17 Announced

Latest Razer Blade Pro 17 Announced

Razer has unveiled their all-new Razer Blade Pro 17, the laptop built for professional gamers, designers and game developers. The Blade Pro 17 has an option of 4K 120Hz display for Full-HD 300Hz for gamers needing to see every frame of every match.

Sitting at the hear of the Blade Pro 17 are Intel and NVIDIA chips, Intels 8-core 10th Gen Core i7-10875H and should you need it, up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 2080 SUPER. The chassis measures in at a compact 2cm x 26cm x 39cm, meaning at home or in the office, or even between the two, you'll make good use of the laptop.

A 300Hz refresh rate display is the perfect option for esports or just your everyday enthusiast wanting to gain the competitive advantage. The increased refresh rate keeps visual sharp and clean in fast paced sequences making enemies easier to see and text easier to read. The 17.3-inch Full-HD display covers 100% of the SRGB space and comes custom-calibrated for colour accuracy. To ensure that the crisp visuals and vibrant colours are never compromised by irritating reflections, each display is coated with a glare-reducing matte finish.

For creators, the 4K 120Hz touch display, available only on the Blade Pro 17, is the perfect companion for working through an idea whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. The custom calibrated display covers 100% of the Adobe RGB space making it perfect for designers and photographers creating on the go.

The heart beat of the Intel 8-core i7-10875H processor, the Blade Pro 17 is faster and more efficient than ever before, capable of clock speeds up to 5.1GHZ with Intel Turbo Boost and a large 16MB cache. The increased cache size plus the additional core count at a higher clock speed means faster compiling in productivity apps, lower render times in creative suites, and overall higher framerates in-game.

Pushing out the pixels are NVIDIA RTX SUPER GPUs, up to an RTX 2080 SUPER. The new RTX SUPER GPU line features up to 8GB of high-bandwidth GDDR6 memory and more ray tracing cores for up to a 25% increase in performance over the original RTX GPUs and improved real-time ray tracing performance.

To maximise the performance of these new processors, the Blade Pro 17 features a unique vapor chamber cooler for efficient heat dissipation, paired with a dual-fan system for additional active cooling. The inventive design allows power users to push the threshold of performance without the worry of generating uncomfortable levels of ambient heat or noise.

The Blade Pro 17 offers the most abundant lineup of connectivity options available in the Razer Blade family, challenging even the most well-equipped desktops, with a UHS-III SD card reader, USB-C Thunderbolt™ 3, HDMI 2.0B, 2.5Gb Ethernet and Wi-Fi 6. Additionally, the USB-C ports now support charging with a 20V USB-C charger. Sitting atop of the display is an integrated HD webcam. The camera also features an IR sensor for quick and easy access via Windows Hello. 

There's also a refreshed keyboard with an extended right shift key and half-height directional keys with per key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting. The new layout reflects a more traditional keyboard layout making for an overall faster and more efficient typing experience.

The all-new Razer Blade Pro 17 will start at USD $2599.99 and will be available later this month at Razer.com and through select retailers in the United States and Canada. It will come soon to select retailers in Europe, China, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.
