Not to be outdone by the likes of Apple with their high-spec 16-inch MacBook Pro, Razer has announced two new laptops—the Blade 15 and Blade 17—armed with Intel’s latest processor, the 11th-generation Core H. With a maxed-out turbo frequency of 4.90GHz, the Core i9-11900H, an 8-core chip with 16 threads, is the most powerful Intel processor ever found in a Razer Blade.
Aimed squarely at gamers and creators, the Blade 15 and 17 can be configured with up to three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, and an HDMI 2.1 port. The laptops also feature an Ethernet port, a UHS-III SD card reader, an enhanced glass touchpad that supports Microsoft Precision Touch, and 360-degree sound via THX Spatial Audio. The Advanced Models include per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting, while the Base Models feature a single-zone backlit keyboard.
Photographers and videographers will be most interested in the graphics capabilities of the new laptops, and there are a variety of customization options. The Blade 15 features a 15.6-inch display in either Full HD (144Hz or 360Hz), QHD (165Hz or 240Hz) or 4K UHD OLED (120Hz) flavors. All of them can display 100% of the Adobe RGB color space, but the QHD and 4K OLED also display 100% of DCI-P3 color. For the Blade 17, you have Full HD (360Hz), QHD 2K (240Hz) and 4K UHD (120Hz) display options, with the Full HD model displaying the sRGB color space, the QHD displaying 100% of DCI-P3 color, and the 4K UHD panel displaying 100% of the Adobe RGB color space.
The Blade 15 starts at $1700, while the Blade 17 starts at $2,400. Visit the Razer website for more details.
