What you need to know

  • The Razer Blade Pro 17 now has a 240Hz 1080p display option.

  • The Razer Blade Pro 17 with a 240Hz display is available now starting at $2,800.

Razer is going all in on refresh rates with its latest updates to the Razer Blade Pro 17. Following the launch of a 4K 120Hz display option in September, the company has added a new 240Hz 1080p panel to the Blade Pro's kit today.

With the range of hardware configurations in the Razer Blade Pro, you should be able to achieve some incredibly high framerates and silky smooth visuals with this new panel. The 240Hz option is available in two configurations with the Blade Pro, paired with either NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q or GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics.

The high0end graphics are paired with an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 512GB of storage, and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Those are backed up with a vapor chamber cooling system meant to keep the laptop cool under load.

Pricing for the laptop will likely be a barrier for many. The Blade Pro 17 starts at $2,500 with a 144Hz display and GeForce RTX 2060 graphics. The 240Hz models start at $2,800, and stepping up to a 4K 120Hz model with GeForce RTX 2080 graphics will set you back $3,700.
