The high-end RTX 2080 Super GPU offers 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and has more ray tracing cores promising up to a 25% increase in performance over the original RTX GPUs. To keep the high-end hardware running cool inside the notebook, the Blade Pro 17 uses a unique vapor chamber cooler paired with a dual-fan system for active cooling. Razer promises that the cooling system delivers the cooling performance needed to keep the machine performing without generating uncomfortable amounts of heat or noise.

Connectivity options include an SD card reader, USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port, HDMI 2.0B port, 2.5 Gb Ethernet port, and Wi-Fi 6. The USB-C ports now support charging with a 20 V charger for emergencies. The machine also features an integrated webcam and an IR sensor supporting Windows Hello. Razer fits the notebook with a keyboard with an extended right shift key and half-height directional keys with per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting. The machine starts at $2599.99 with availability later this month. Last month, Razer unveiled its Blade 15 notebook.
