Razer announces Blade 15 and 17 Laptops with Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs

Razer Blade

The Blade 15 and 17-inch laptops by Razer are getting a graphics update with Nvidia’s latest RTX 3000 mobile GPUs. 

The Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17, which are expected to go on sale in the coming week, will be the next generation of graphics technology. Laptops with an RTX 3060 up to an RTX 3080 will be available for sale. 

Apart from that, the other significant improvement relates with the options of display. The Blade 15 Advanced model can be purchased with a 360Hz 1080p display for the first time over the new 300Hz screen for an even higher refresh rate. Interested consumers can also opt to purchase a laptop that comes with Nvidia’s G-Sync technology with a 240Hz 1440p panel.

Three new display options are also offered for the Blade Pro 17: 1080p at 360Hz, 1440p at 165Hz, and 4K at 120Hz. The CPUs onboard the laptop versions, however, will remain the same and use the Core i7 processors of Intel’s 10th generation. 

The company markets the products to consumers who are looking for a lightweight, but powerful, 0.78-inch-thick gaming laptop. The new Wi-Fi 6E standard is also going to help the Blade 15 Advanced Model. 

Fitted with an RTX 3060 GPU and a 144Hz 1080p screen, the refreshed Razer Blade 15 will start at $1,699. Meanwhile, the Blade 17 Pro will launch at $2,299, using the same discreet graphics card. 

The new items are available on Razer.com for pre-order. The Blade 15 is expected to go on sale on Jan 26, while in February the Advanced Model is scheduled to start shipping.
