Okay, there are brutal, more powerful and extravagant options , but if we still have a portable computer and a major design and engineering exercise, without too flashy elements, this Blade Pro should be at the top of the range of possibilities. That yes, the interested can be preparing the 4,200 euros that ask for him.

Much money, too, but it is more or less justifiable for some to review what we find inside and outside this Pro model. A team that is not afraid of the most demanding game, nor of virtual reality : Razer Blade Pro GTX 1080 Gaming laptop review

It is interesting to see that Razer will like more Europe and will bring its other laptops to markets like Germany, France and UK. We talk about the 14-inch Blade (2,000 euros), or the Stealth Blade 12.5 inches (1,100 euros).

The new Razer team has a large screen of 17.3 “, enough to comfortably play the vast majority of current video games. Along its 43.94 centimeters diagonal, presents games, videos and photos in Full HD Thanks to its resolution of  1920 x 1080 pixels . Its anti-glare system allows you to enjoy all types of multimedia content in adverse lighting conditions.

Instead of a numeric keypad, the Razer Blade Pro has a small touch panel mounted under ten keys (known as Switchblade ). These keys have a small LED display and are fully customizable using the Synapse 2.0 software equipped with the computer. The launch of the new laptop comes with new combinations of macros designed for both games and other types of professional programs.

High-end processor, mid-range graphics.

Equipped with the new range of Intel Haswell processors, it mounts an Intel Core i7 (i7-4700HQ) quad-core processor with a speed of 2.4 GHz . For graphics reproduction, a Geforce GTX 765M 2 Gb GDDR5 GPU has been chosen . Interestingly the Razer Blade Pro runs with 8GB of RAM , when many of its competitors mount 16GB of memory on board. It also features the Dolby Home Theater v4 sound system and a storage capacity of 128, 256, or 515 Gb in SSD format .

The equipment works perfectly with all the games present in the market thanks to its 32 frames per second. However, for the games that are to come as ” Battlefield 4 “, the laptop may run short on graphics card . Instead of the GeForce GTX 765M mid-range model , as with the RAM theme, including the Geforce GTX 780M high-end chip would have been a better choice, especially since such a GPU is what any player Expects to be in a team of this price.

Slightly noisy at maximum power

Being a notebook dedicated to running the latest video games as well as professional editing programs, the graphics processor will sometimes run close to its power limit and will heat up more than it should. To cool it, the fan increases its revolutions per second, thus avoiding overheating of the equipment. This, of course, will cause a slight increase in equipment noise . On the other hand, as long as the use of Razer Blade Pro is for office work, internet browsing or video calling, the equipment will remain almost completely silent.

The powerful Razer Blade Pro is a slim laptop to be a gamer, offers a wide range of configuration and customization options, especially thanks to the Switchblade user interface , which gives it a unique touch. It also features a surprisingly long battery life for a notebook with this screen size. But there is also something to complain about: For a team (close to £ 2,000) specifically designed for use with video games , the GPU mounted on the computer is not what could be expected, and we are looking for something scarce to support video games That come, without forgetting the high price of the laptop.

The battle of high-end gamer laptops has only just begun. The introduction of the new Haswell processors is causing a rapid evolution (as in smartphones and PCs) in these equipments. However, this power must be accompanied by a latest generation graphics chip, as well as a large amount of RAM. The Razer Blade Pr or has struck a heavy blow on the table that will no doubt provoke a reaction in the competition.
