Razer's Blade Pro 17 Gets a 4K 120 Hz Monitorby Anton Shilov on September 24, 2019 2:30 PM EST

When Razer introduced its revamped 17.3-inch Blade Pro 17 laptops earlier this year, one of the things that caught the eye was the absence of models with an Ultra-HD display, a strange design decision considering positioning of these machines for demanding gamers and prosumers. This week the company unveiled a new version of its Blade Pro 17 notebook with a 4K display featuring a 120 Hz refresh rate.
Being the flagship model in the lineup, Razer’s Blade Pro 17 4K UHD 120 Hz will be offered in only one configuration powered by Intel’s six-core Core i7-9750H processor (2.6 GHz – 4.5 GHz) paired with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU, 16 GB of DDR4-2667 memory (user upgradeable to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 memory) as well as a 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD (expandable to 2 TB) SSD. Just like the rest notebooks in the lineup, the Ultra-HD version comes with Intel’s Wireless-AX200 802.11ax + Bluetooth 5 solution, a 2.5 GbE port, a Thunderbolt 3 connector, three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, an HDMI 2.0b output, a UHS-III SD card reader, 1MP/720p webcam with IR sensors for Windows Hello, an array microphone, and Dolby Atmos-supporting stereo speakers, and an 3.5mm audio jack.
The addition of a touch-sensitive display with a 3840×2160 resolution, 400 nits brightness, and a 120 Hz refresh rate did not have any impact on design or weight of the notebook. The machine made of black aluminum is 19.9 mm thick and weighs 2.75 kilograms. It is also equipped with a 70.5 Wh battery, though Razer says nothing about the battery life on one charge.

GreenReaper - Thursday, September 26, 2019 - linkIt's great, no doubt. But $3,699? €3,999.99? And it feels almost like they're penny-pinching on the RAM; I guess you could defend it based on power saving, but it's not that much of a defence.
Tams80 - Thursday, September 26, 2019 - linkI'd like to see some AMD options. I'd prefer all AMD, but a CPU option would be nice.
More importantly, though, a 90+Wh battery (ideally the max allowed on a plane) would almost make me buy it instantly.
WIld, fever-pitched dream: Socketed CPU and GPU.
