Razer Blade 17 Gaming Laptop Gets Supercharged with Seven New Models

Razer is revamping the Blade 17, its largest gaming laptop, with the latest Intel processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series GPUs. In one of Razer’s biggest lineups yet, the Blade 17 (with the word “Pro” removed from the name) will come in seven separate configurations, starting at $2,399.

While the design isn’t changing, Razer is giving its CNC aluminum chassis an anti-fingerprint coating, which should be a big boost, as its laptops can get covered in fingerprints pretty easily. 

Razer is also promising an improved trackpad with better palm rejection, per-key lighting and four speakers with THX Spatial Audio, a type of virtual 7.1 surround sound from Razer-acquired brand THX. Consider these quality of life features to give it an edge when it contends for the list of the best gaming laptops.

The new Blade 17 laptops will mostly use the Intel Core i7-11800H CPU with a boost clock speed of 4.6 GHz. But the top-end, $3,699 model will use Razer’s first Core i9, an 11th Gen Core i9-11900H going up to 4.9 GHz boost. Razer claims that higher PL1 levels and TGPs are enabled by the Blade 17’s vapor chamber cooling system.
