and lightest desktop replacement in the world with a 17.3-inch G-Sync IGZO
display, Intel’s latest quad-core i7 CPU, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX® 1080 GPU, up to
2 TB of SSD storage and an ultra-low profile mechanical keyboard
gamers, today announced the new 17-inch Razer Blade Pro. Completely redesigned
from ground up, the system is made specifically for enthusiasts and power users
who want desktop performance but don’t want to sacrifice portability. Packed
with more power than ever before possible in a notebook under an inch thick,
Razer’s latest system is capable of handling virtually any task, anytime,
anywhere.The new Razer Blade Pro features the latest Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor
and next-generation NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 GPU. It is the most powerful
system ever built by Razer and the thinnest notebook available with a GTX 1080.
Other highlights on the new Razer Blade Pro include Thunderbolt 3 for advanced
connectivity options, 32 GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory, up to 2 TB of PCI M.2
SSD in RAID 0 storage and a built-in SD card reader.
While other similarly equipped desktop replacements are more than two inches
thick and weigh more than 10 pounds, the new Blade Pro retains its iconic form
factor. Its unibody CNC aluminum chassis still measures just 0.88 inches thin
while weighing less than eight pounds. The included AC adapter also dwarfs
similarly powered systems and complements the overall mobility of the Blade
Even more remarkable is the system’s thermal management system. This all new
thermal management system in the Blade Pro now includes the worlds thinnest
manufactured vapor chamber cooling solution in a notebook. The vapor chamber
reduces heat resistance and hotspots by spreading heat quickly, evenly and
efficiently. A custom fan design and dynamic heat exchanger are paired with the
vapor chamber to maximize heat dissipation. This allows the Razer Blade Pro to
be the most powerful computer ever assembled in such a thin chassis.
The rest of the desktop replacement notebook offers a similar no-compromises
approach. A stunning 17.3-inch 4K IGZO monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology
produces the smoothest possible framerates. The display offers 100 percent
Adobe RGB color accuracy to deliver stunning visuals to gamers and
Additionally, the Razer Blade Pro is the first
notebook to utilize Razer’s Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switches. Each switch
features a true actuation and reset point. Presses are registered with 65 grams
of force, mimicking the feel of full-size mechanical keyboards. The keyboard
and trackpad are also Powered by Razer Chroma™. This technology unlocks a
virtually endless array of dazzling lighting effects that can be customized by
the user or synced to display in-game events.
The specs for the Blade Pro exceed minimum hardware requirements of HTC Vive™,
Oculus Rift and OSVR HDK 2, making it one of the most mobile VR-ready devices
for enthusiasts and developers.
“The original 17-inch Blade was the first laptop that truly blended power and
portability in a PC,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We’ve
taken that approach another step further with the new Razer Blade Pro. The
thermal engineering behind it is staggering. It’s incredible how far we’ve
come, from having one product and a small team, to today, with a full catalog
of gaming systems and a large group of engineers and designers pushing what a
portable gaming machine can do.”
“It’s impressive what Razer was able to pack into the new Razer Blade Pro,”
said Mark Aevermann, senior product lead for GeForce gaming laptops at
NVIDIA. “They have managed to design a gaming laptop with our flagship
GeForce GTX 1080, in a form factor gamers can take with them on the road.”
The 17-inch Blade Pro joins the rest of Razer’s award-winning systems lineup.
The 14-inch Razer Blade sets the benchmark for mobile gaming, while the
12.5-inch Razer Blade Stealth was named the “Best PC” at CES earlier this year
for its combination of performance, value, expandability and portability. Both
models recently announced refreshes that are shipping now.
