Razer today announced the Blade Pro, a 17-inch gaming laptop powered by a future 4th gen Intel Core processor, the new NVIDIA GeForceGTX 765M graphics
"With the Razer Blade Pro, we've designed a gaming laptop for work and for play-appealing to on-the-go hardcore gamers, game developers, creative artists and aspiring video professionals," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "The Razer Blade Pro can flawlessly run the most popular creative software applications, and is powerful enough to run the most graphically intensive games on the market today."
At 0.88 inches thin and weighing 6.5 pounds, the Blade Pro is the most portable 17-inch gaming laptop in its class. It features a 47-watt Intel chip, 10 watts more than the last 17-inch Razer Blade and the most powerful CPU ever fitted into a Razer system. The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU is also included. The Blade Pro also comes with Dolby Home Theatre v4. All of this is topped-off with gaming-grade peripherals built in, such as Razer Synapse 2.0, a programmable anti-ghosting keyboard with adjustable backlight and a track pad.
At the heart of the Blade Pro is a full-HD 17-inch LED display linked in combination with the Switchblade User Interface (SBUI). Driven by 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys, an LCD track pad and game apps, users can work harder and play harder. Razer's SBUI now includes several new, apps and free tools including programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro, Maya, GIMP and more.
The Razer Blade Pro also features 8 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and now comes standard with 128 GB of total solid-stage storage, with optional 256 GB and 512 GB SSDs.
The Blade Pro will be available for pre-order June 3. Prices start from $2,299.
