Razer has updated one of its largest notebooks in the catalog, the Razer Blade Pro 17 . With this update the manufacturer has wanted to dispel all kinds of doubts to those users who are looking for the maximum benefits in a team, since in addition to mounting a latest generation processor, generous graphics and enough internal storage, the team has been encouraged to offer a 300 Hz refresh screen. Almost nothing.
This new Razer Blade Pro 17 arrives to convince you in seconds. It is true that the prices it handles are not particularly cheap, but if we take into account the list of benefits, we could say that it is even balanced. The available configurations will allow to create several variants that will be differentiated by the graphics model and the refreshment of the screen.
The models that we could find in the market with ninth generation processors will continue to exist. The new versions will be those that mount more modern graphics from NVIDIA and 10th generation processors from Intel, and can now find the option of a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q or a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q , both with the option to choose a screen at 300 Hz (Full HD) and 4K at 120 HZ in the case of the RTX 2080.
The price of 300 Hz
Yes, enjoying an image at 300 Hz will be a sacrifice of resolution, since the panel will stay in Full HD, and we can only opt for a 4K screen if we lower the speed to 120 Hz with the RTX 2080. The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q will only offer Full HD panels, being able to choose between 144 Hz, 240 Hz and 300 Hz versions. A rather confusing combination for the user.
One of the best laptops on the market
Razer’s proposal remains very clear. They offer a laptop with spectacular measurements with only 19.9 mm thickness, a very elegant design with straight lines and a set of features that with a 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD (remember that the Xbox Series X disk is this type of storage units), 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 70.5 Whr battery, make it an extremely interesting option for those looking for a laptop beyond the game, since it can also be converted into a workstation very portable to consider.
