Razer revealed an updated version to one of their best gaming laptops as the company showed off the Blade Pro 17 this week. This is an all-around improved version of the previous model as it is ideal for gaming while also serving as a great workstation for those who need it for work and play. Boasting refresh rates of up to 300Hz, NVIDIA SUPER graphics, and a fast 8-core Intel Core i7 processor. We have more details about the laptop below as it is now on sale for $2,600 through their website and select retailers.
"The Razer Blade Pro 17 is the perfect laptop for power users, pro gamers, and creatives alike," said Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President of Razer's Systems Business. "It's a workstation, stream setup, and battle rig all wrapped up in one sleek and sexy 17-inch bundle. The Blade Pro 17 can tackle the latest games and most intensive workloads as easily as it can fit into a backpack."
The new 300Hz refresh rate display is the ideal choice for every esports pro needing to practice while on the road and every 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 color accuracy so games aren't just silky smooth but also eye-wateringly gorgeous. To ensure that the crisp visuals and vibrant colors are never compromised by irritating reflections, each display is coated with a glare-reducing matte finish.
Powered by the new 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.
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 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 quick and easy access via Windows Hello. In addition to the variety of ports and HD webcam, the new Blade Pro 17 features 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.
