Up to 32 GB of RAM, a latest-generation GPU from NVIDIA, but no OLED model.
Along with the update of the Blade 15, Razer logically decided to review its most bulky laptop models, the famous Blade Pro 17.
Three variations of the Blade Pro 17
Unsurprisingly, since it has been the case since the creation of these ranges, the Blade Pro 17 are fewer in number and there is no question here of dividing the range into two segments, advanced and base. No, Razer presents a total of three versions of its 17-inch laptop with several points in common.
Thus the models are designed around the Core i7-10875H which is found on the most powerful Blade 15. It is a CPU with 8 cores and capable of reaching 5.1 GHz in booster. A subtlety all the same: a Blade Pro 17 only accompanies it with 16 GB of RAM when the other two offer 32 GB, still DDR4-2933 MHz.
The bulk of the change therefore concerns the graphics card and the integration of the new RTX solutions from NVIDIA. These are of course the mobile versions of the latest GeForce, namely, depending on the case, an RTX 3060 Laptop, an RTX 3070 Laptop, or an RTX 3080 Laptop.
To go along with these GPU changes, Razer decided to further segment the monitor subsystem. We, therefore, have the choice between a model with a QHD @ 165 Hz panel, another equipped with an FHD @ 360 Hz panel, and a last equipped, according to the customer’s wishes, with a UHD touch screen @ 120 Hz or the panel. FHD @ 360 Hz already mentioned.
Prices for the Blade Pro 17 starts at 2,899 euros, showing a very slight decrease compared to last year. However, we do not yet have details regarding the opening of pre-orders and the actual availability, which Razer plans for ” during January 2021 “.
