Razer’s Blade Pro 17 sports a 300Hz display, Nvidia RTX Super GPUs

Not a radical update, but another slick-looking option for power-hungry gamers. Razer on Thursday announced a new version of its Razer Blade Pro 17 gaming laptop. Like its predecessor, the device is aimed squarely at gamers and content creators looking for a powerful yet relatively thin 17-inch notebook. Of note here is that the 1080p models feature a super-fast 300Hz refresh rate, up from the 240Hz option in last years lineup. (The 4K display is 120Hz.) This has been a growing trend among gaming laptops in recent months —Razer, for one, already introduced a 300Hz option with its latest Blade 15 notebook. As display research site BlurBusters has noted, even if a gaming laptop is only capable of actually reaching 300Hz in older or less-demanding titles like CS:GO or Overwatch, having an ultra-high refresh rate can still help reduce motion blur and make mouse and Web-browsing effects appear more fluid. Its proliferation should also help to lower the barrier of entry to still impressive 144Hz and 240Hz displays, much like whats happened with 4K TV panels in recent years. Youd need even higher refresh rates to see the full extent of the possible improvements, and the returns will inevitably diminish the higher you go. But the gaming display market is trending in that direction; both Asus and Dell are already teasing 360Hz displays in upcoming gaming monitors. While this high of a refresh rate is still far from necessary for most people, its a technical advancement all the same. However, theres still no support for either AMD's FreeSync or Nvidia's G-Sync variable refresh rate tech here; this may help salvage some battery life, but it could still make screen tearing more of an issue. In terms of design, not much has changed­. The new model has the same dimensions (0.78×10.24×15.5-inches­) and weight (6.06 lbs.) as before. Its not light, but for a 17-inch gaming laptop, its aluminum frame and matte finish have traditionally come off svelte and clean (if prone to fingerprints). The I/O is still generous, with a Thunderbolt 3 port (which allows for external GPUs), a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port (which can charge the laptop), three USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, an Ethernet jack, an HDMI 2.0b port, and a UHS-III SD card reader. The notebook supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5, while the keyboard supports per-key RGB lighting. That keyboard has also been tweaked to have a longer right shift key and shorter directional keys; previous models had awkwardly stuck the up key between the shift and forward slash keys. The Blade series has always skewed expensive, and thats the case again here: the new Blade Pro 17 starts at $2,600, a $100 increase over its predecessor. The 1080p and RTX 2080 Super Max-Q model is priced at $3,200, while the 4K model goes for $3,800. Razer says the notebook will be available later this month in the US and Canada but only says itll arrive soon in other regions.
