This laptop uses the new hexa-core i7-9750H processor and has a base clock of 2.6GHz but is rated to turbo boost up to 4.5GHz under load on a single core. The i7-8750H it replaces was rated at 2.2GHz but with a turbo boost up to 4.1GHz under load. During testing I saw a maximum all core boost clock speed from the i7-9750H in the Razer Blade Pro 17 of around 4.29Ghz.

The 16GB of memory is DDR4 and runs at a speed of 2667MHz. The GPU-Z screenshots show both the Intel integrated graphics and the dedicated Nvidia RTX 2070 Max Q. The RTX 2070 Max-Q features 8GB of GDDR5 memory and has a default clock of 1080MHz and a rated boost clock of 1305MHz. However, during testing I did notice the boost clock peaked at 1890MHz and managed to maintain near to this impressive boost clock most of the time.
