Razer releases an all-new 17-inch Razer Blade Pro gaming notebook featuring the latest Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics processor. The Razer Blade Pro promises a desktop-like performance with great portability with the notebook under an inch thick. Razer claims it to be the thinnest gaming notebook packing a powerful GTX 1080. It also features swift connectivity options like the Thunderbolt 3 technology. The new Razer Blade Pro can also pack as much as 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2 Terabytes of PCI M.2 SSD in RAID 0 configuration for the fastest data processing available on gaming notebooks.

The new Razer Blade Pro uses a unibody CNC aluminum housing that's only 0.88 inches thick and weighs only around 8 pounds, very lightweight and thin compared to gaming notebooks with similar specifications from other brands. The new Razer Blade Pro uses a new cooling system which is deemed the world's thinnest vapor chamber cooling solution. Vapor chamber technology dissipates heat much faster and more efficient compared to conventional cooling. This gave the Blade Pro the thinness without compromising thermal management.

For display, the Razer Blade Pro features a 17.3-inch 4K IGZO monitor with NVIDIA G-Sync technology for the best gaming experience with smooth frame rates which offers 100% Adobe RGB color accuracy as well. The Blade Pro also features a low-profile mechanical keyboard powered by Razer Chroma for stunning and customizable RGB lighting. Razer Blade Pro is also VR-ready, it meets the minimum requirements for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR HDK 2.
