Razer Is Calling The New Blade Pro The Most Powerful System Its Ever Built

Razer announced the new Blade Pro, a powerful laptop that the company hopes will deal a killing blow to overwhelmingly large gaming laptops and desktop PCs alike. It is a notebook, but it’s loaded with top-end desktop components that guarantee supreme graphical prowess. And, more importantly, the VR compatibility.

Razer Blade Pro Display:

The 0.88-inch thick 7.8-pound Blade Pro is much thinner and lighter than 17-inch desktop replacements like the Origin EON17-SLX and Alienware 17.

Razer also promises to deliver the complete desktop experience in a laptop with the Pro’s new 4K (3,840×2,160) resolution touchscreen display. As with the other Razer laptops, screen is an IGZO panel that supports Nvidia’s G-SYNC frame rate smoothing technology and 100 percent Adobe RGB color accuracy.
