A gaming laptop is that which doesn’t cut too many corners. It is just over six pounds and boasts a 17-inch
screen. It also has a top-end RTX GPU, and an H-series processor. And also contain with an Ultrabook -y vibe to it. Corresponding to its smaller counterparts in the Blade line, the Pro 17 is chic and professional, lacking the bells and whistles are you might be looking forward to seeing on a large gaming laptop. The chassis is all black coloured and made up of aluminium, with Razer’s logo which is adding a sleek splash of green to the lid. The keyboard, although colourful, is classy and subdued.
TOUCH AND FEEL
- Gaming performance is very impressive
- Thin, chic in design
- An appealing & Colorful keyboard with fun effects
IT COMES UP WITH
Razorblade Pro 17 has a wide port selection means you can connect up to three external displays.
The laptop consists of three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports
With one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
UHS-III SD card slot also there (in addition to a Kensington lock)
Thunderbolt 3 (one)
Power port (one)
You can charge a blade by USB-C, but Razer recommends sticking with its brick, as the laptop may charge
slowly or not charging at all when the low-wattage adapter is used for charging
STANDOUT FEATURE: DISPLAY
The Pro 17 is available with one of two screens having a 300Hz screen with 1920 x 1080 resolutions or a 120Hz touch display with 3840 x 2160 resolutions, and I test the 300Hz configuration. Suppose we talk about higher refresh rate and lower resolution, than it means that this panel is intended for gaming. If you’re interested in doing severe creative work, then the latter screen is one of the right options. In this laptop 1080p display is also not the brightest one around but reached; at the peak of just 319 nits in my testing. But still, the games looked pretty good. There are a little glare and almost no ghosting.
- Well built with Eight-core Core i7-10875H
- Contains 16GB of dual-channel RAM which is upgradeable to 64GB
- A 512GB SSD
An open M.2 slot upgradeable to 2TB
Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics card
The setup is $3,199, and the base model is $2,599, the only difference is that rather than 2080 it has an RTX 2070 Max-Q. The touch screen option is $3,799, and it comes with a 1TB SSD also upgradeable to 2TB. All models have a ship with a 230W brick and 70.5Whr battery.
A new vapour chamber is integrated into the Blade, which keeps the laptop cool more efficiently than traditional heat pipes. The vents are hidden in the hinge to pump out the air, and they faced up the screen so that you can’t see them until and unless you are viewing the laptop from above. I could hear the system at work as stereo speakers are loud enough that you’ll still hear your games’ audio just fine. Still, the labour was not quite good enough because it keeps the chassis to heat up, but the fans accomplish the more important task of keeping the chips cool, and if we talk about gaming hours, the CPU never broke up to 90 degrees Celsius.
The laptop shines as Blade Pro 17 was able to run Microsoft flight simulator on the ultra setting 53 frames per second on an average. 53fps is quite impressive for a laptop, especially on this thin and light. Ray tracing is handled by RTX 2080 which proved itself.
The Blade Pro 17 averaged 129fps on Overwatch, 139fps on Fortnite, 168fps on Apex Legends, and 231fps
on CS: GO
This 1080p Blade configuration is not what you are thinking to buy for creative work, but it will perform an
excellent job with that as well, i.e. completing an export of a 5 min into just 33-second, 4K video in only two
minutes and 44 seconds. And that is comparable to the result I got from the Gigabyte Aero 15, which is also
designed for creative work. And if we talk about Dell XPS 17, it will take around four minutes to finish the same task.
THE PORTABLE & PREMIUM
Some results are very near to the peak of a gaming laptop. They beat some big rigs we have tested, including Alien ware’s prior-generation Area 51m, and thinner 17-inches like the MSIGS75. If you need some better output than that stuff, you are going to be seeing at the systems with a Core i9 and even more elaborate cooling. I am talking about MSI’s GT76 Titan and also Gigabyte’s Aorus 17X than it is much thicker having much heavier stuff that requires multiple power bricks. But if you’re searching for a decently thin 17-inch gaming laptop that you can roam around your house without facing too much difficulty, the Blade Pro 17 is about as good as it gets and it will be the best option.
Of course, that does not mean it is the only option. It will be still quite expensive, and if you don’t need a screen that is quite big like this screen, then you can get great gaming results from any number of more affordable 15- inch machines. If you want something like this to use while out and about, plenty of 17-inches like the GS75 and the Alien ware m17 R2 can hold more juice and gratification.
Now a day’s every smart device requires you to agree some terms and conditions before using it. So, there are some mandatory terms that you need to agree while start using razer blade pro 17:
A request to your keyboard layout
Request to region
The Razorblade Pro 17 is something for which you need to compromise and neither it is best out of best, but yes it is the best of the premium and portable product for which you will never regret if you are a game lover and enjoy your creativity. And if we talk about its looks, portability and performance than there is no option other than this.
