It’s long overdue, but it is here. Razer has just reveal the new Razer Blade 17 Gaming Laptops armed with the latest 11th-Gen Intel Core H-Series processors and featuring up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. It’s the first Blade 17 to tout Intel Core i9-11900H and thus, making it the most powerful Blade laptop yet.
“With the inclusion of the i9-11900H processor, packed with eight cores and 16 threads, the Blade 17 reaches new levels of performance that were previously unheard of in an Intel-based Razer Blade.”
Why the emphasize on “an Intel-based Razer Blade”? Well, if you have already heard, there’s AMD Ryzen-powered Blade too.
Anyhoo, the new Blade 17 further boasts the option for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, up to 4K Touchscreen, and now rocks a new anti-fingerprint resistive coating that reduces smudges on the exterior chassis.
In addition, it offers improved FHD 1080p webcam, no less than four dedicated microphones, four upward firing speakers, touchpad with improved palm rejection, improved vapor chamber for even more efficient heat dissipation, faster storage, faster memory, an abundance of ports including SD card reader and dual-sided Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, and finally, there are, of course, Razer Chroma RGB backlighting and THX Spatial Audio.
The all-new Razer Blade 17 Gaming Laptop is available to order now with a starting price of US$2,399.99.
In a related news, Razer has also updated the Blade 15 with the 11th-Gen Intel Core i7-11800H processors, along with top line graphics of up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, two PCIe 4.0 SSD slots, faster memory, Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, and THX Spatial Audio. The updated Blade 15 is also available to order now with a startling price of US$1,799.99.
