NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU has a maximum TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost, the highest wattage of any GPU used inside of a ROG laptop. There's a 17-inch display with the option of 1080p @ 360Hz or 1440p @ 240Hz, content creators and gamers shouldn't bother with the 1080p model, moving right into the 1440p panel (ASUS, it's disappointing to not see a 4K 120Hz option) on this high-end laptop.

But not all OLED panels are made the same, with Razer only putting out 400 nits of brightness, so you won't be blinking too much when you're gaming. You'll, unfortunately, be waiting for a while, as Razer will be shipping its new Blade 15 with the 240Hz OLED panel later this year in Q4 2022.
