What you need to know

  • Razer launched a new 4K 120Hz display option for the Blade Pro 17 today.
  • The update combines the Blade Pro's already powerful hardware with a crisp, silky display.
  • The new display option is available now for $3,700 at Razer.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 already represented the top tier of Razer's gaming notebook offerings, but it's getting a massive upgrade today in terms of display quality. Razer has added a new display option to the mix that marries crisp 4K visuals with a silky smooth 120Hz refresh rate.

A 120Hz refresh rate is often seen as the target for serious gamers, allowing games to achieve high framerates that keep the action smooth for fast-twitch scenarios. Combined with its 4K resolution, the new display option should be a boon for both gamers and content creators.

The display has a set of powerful hardware backing it up as well. Inside, you'll get an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics, 1TB of SSD storage, and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Those components are backed up by a vapor chamber cooling system to help keep the PC cool under load.

All of this adds up to a price that will be a little hard to swallow for some, however. The 4K 120Hz version of the Blade Pro 17 costs $3,700 and sits as the top configuration. If you're after higher refresh rates, you can get the entry-level model, which includes a standard 1080p panel running at 144Hz, for $2,500.
