Razer has unveiled its updated Razer Blade Pro 17 laptop with an optional 300Hz refresh rate 1080p display. The laptop also gets Intel’s latest tenth-gen Core i7-10875H processor and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 or 2080 Max Q for $2,599 and $3,199 respectively.

In the UK the prices start at £2,599 so we assume the other models cost the same in pounds as they do in dollars.

The impressive display has a 1920x1080 resolution with 300 nits of brightness and covers 100% of the sRGB colour spectrum.

There’s also a 120Hz option that creative professionals might prefer that has the RTX 2080, a higher 400 nits screen with a 3840x1080 resolution and 100% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut and 1TB PCIe NVMe storage for $3,799.

All models come with 16GB of dual channel DDR4 RAM that you can spec up to 64GB if your demands require it. So yes, this is a serious machine aimed at gamers, designers and game developers.

For a 17in monster there is also no shortage of ports, with Thunderbolt 3, 3x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type A, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C, HDMI 2.0b and an SD card slot. You probably won’t need to buy any dongles.

Like 2019’s model there’s a vapor chamber cooling system. Features like this ensure that the laptop is not exactly the definition of portable as they add substantial weight in addition to the chassis’ large size. That said, at least it’s possible to cart it around unlike similarly-specced desktops.
