Razer’s best-selling 17” laptop has been updated with a range of high refresh rate displays up to 300Hz, powerful NVIDIA SUPER graphics and an 8-core Intel Core i7 processor.
The Blade Pro 17 is available now with a 4K 120Hz display for creators requiring a high-resolution workstation and a Full-HD 300Hz option for gamers needing to see every frame of every match.
Powering these displays are the latest processors from both Intel and NVIDIA, including the 8-core 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10875H and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. The Razer Blade Pro 17 packs the power of a desktop into a compact .78” x 10.24” x 15.5” chassis that users can easily take from the main office to the home office.
The new 300Hz refresh rate display could be a choice for esports pros needing to practice while on the road and every enthusiasts wanting to gain the competitive advantage. The increased refresh rate keeps visual sharp in fast paced sequences. The 17.3-inch Full-HD display covers 100% of the SRGB space and comes custom-calibrated for color accuracy. Each display is also coated with a glare-reducing matte finish.
The 4K 120Hz touch display, available only on the Blade Pro 17, comes custom calibrated and covers 100% of the Adobe RGB space.
Powered by the new Intel 8-core i7-10875H processor, the Blade Pro 17 is faster 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.
Working in tandem with the new Intel 8 core processor is the new line of 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 handle the increased heat coming out of these high-end chip inside, the Blade Pro 17 features a vapor chamber cooler paired with a dual-fan system. Razer claims that the 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 a wide lineup of connectivity options including a UHS-III SD card reader, USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port, HDMI 2.0B port, 2.5Gb Ethernet port and Wi-Fi 6. Additionally, the USB-C ports now support charging with a 20V USB-C charger, for emergency situations. Lining the top of the display is an integrated HD webcam allowing streamers to mix up their environment with ease. The camera also features an IR sensor for access via Windows Hello.
