If it wasn’t news enough from Razer that their Blades are finally coming to Europe, they’ve added another Blade to the arsenal that could very easily wipe the floor of the vast majority of gaming desktops out there.
It’s got tasty specs spilling out everywhere, it’s making my PC worry a little bit (Don’t worry, pal. I’ll give you some treatment later)
Anyway… back to the Blade Pro.
It features a 17.3″ 4K Touch display, an Intel quad-core i7 processor, a desktop-class NVIDIA GTX 1080 (!!!) GPU with 32GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 2TB of PCI-E SSD storage.
The Razer Blade Pro will also come with something rather special – a low-profile mechanical keyboard. These keyboards have been a crown of desktop PC gaming for as long as I can remember, and now it looks like the laptop is finally going to see a bit of the mechanical love too. Being a Razer product, the keyboard will also have Chroma built in for colourful key-by-key customisation.
An interesting tidbit from a connectivity standpoint is a Killer Doubleshot Pro network card. This combines the WiFi and Ethernet connections to actively prioritise the strongest signal for the best conneciton. I’d assume that Ethernet would win every time, but it’s handy to know that it’s there.
All in all, this devilishly thin 22.5mm laptop will surely melt the majority of PCs out there when it ships this November. Getting your hands on all of that tech will not come cheap. Prices will start at $3699 / €4199 with UK prices yet to be confirmed. There’ll be no waiting for Europe releases this time, as the system will ship with localised options for France, Germany and the UK.
