Today Razer is launching the new Razer Blade 17 gaming laptops, packing Intel 11th Gen Core H-series processors and up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. For the first time in a Blade 17, buyers will also be able to opt for an Intel Core i9-11900H CPU.
With the inclusion of the Core i9-11900H processor, packed with eight cores and 16 threads, the Blade 17 reaches new levels of performance. The CPU clocks in with a max turbo frequency of up to 4.9GHz. By pairing it with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU, the Blade 17 should be one of the most powerful gaming laptops on the market.
The Blade 17 comes with several display options, so users can choose between a 360Hz/1080p display, a 1440p display with 165Hz refresh rate or 240Hz refresh rate, or a 4K panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. To reduce smudges on the outside of the laptop, the new Blade 17 also sports a new fingerprint-resistive coating.
Other improvements include a new 1080p webcam, THX Spatial Audio, a better cooling system, better palm rejection for the touchpad, as well as faster memory and storage options, as well as dual-sided Thunderbolt 4 connectivity.
The new Razer Blade 17 is available for pre-order starting from today. Pricing starts at £2,399.99.
