The two new models officially were unveiled on Wednesday, with Razer highlighting the inclusion of new 11th Gen Intel processors and Nvidia’s 30-series laptop GPUs as a major part of the refresh. Both the Blade 17 and the Blade Base 15 will feature THX Spatial Audio built into the laptop, itself. Razer says this should allow for more dynamic sound in games and movies.
The Blade 17 will ship with an Intel I9-11900H processor, offering eight cores and 16 threads. Razer says the updated CPU will clock in at a max turbo of 4.90GHz, giving it a new level of performance compared to previous Blade 17 laptops. The computer manufacturer has paired the i9-11900H with up to an Nvidia RTX 3080 and a 4K 17-inch touchscreen display. The Blade 17 also will include an anti-fingerprint resistive coating around its body to help reduce smudges on the exterior design.
