Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced the Blade Pro, the latest evolution of its award-winning 17-inch gaming laptop. Powered by a future 4th gen Intel Core processor, next generation NVIDIA GeForceGTX 765M graphics and groundbreaking storage performance, the new Blade Pro is faster and more powerful than ever before.

"With the Razer Blade Pro, we've designed a gaming laptop for work and for play-appealing to on-the-go hardcore gamers, game developers, creative artists and aspiring video professionals," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "The Razer Blade Pro can flawlessly run the most popular creative software applications, and is powerful enough to run the most graphically intensive games on the market today."





Razer's designers and engineers refined every inner component to increase performance, while staying true to portability. At 0.88 inches thin and weighing 6.5 pounds, the Blade Pro is the most portable 17-inch gaming laptop in its class. Every detail is sleek, slim and light, all the way down to the compact power supply, making the Blade Pro the best choice for gaming performance and creative work on-the-go.

The Blade Pro, the third iteration of Razer's ground-breaking, ultra-portable laptop, features a 47-watt Intel chip, 10 watts more than the last 17-inch Razer Blade and the most powerful CPU ever fitted into a Razer system for increased professional performance. The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU is also included. All of this is packed into the thinnest and lightest form factor in the 17-inch laptop class. The Blade Pro comes with Dolby Home Theatre v4, featuring immersive audio quality that is custom-tuned to each Razer laptop to deliver a cinematic sound experience. All of this is topped-off with gaming-grade peripherals built right in, such as Razer Synapse 2.0, a fully programmable anti-ghosting keyboard with adjustable backlight and an ultra-sensitive track pad.

"Innovation is happening across the PC industry, and what Razer has done with the Blade Pro is groundbreaking," says Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile Client Platforms. "Utilizing a future 4th gen Intel Core processor, the Razer Blade Pro delivers top-class gaming and professional performance in a very portable form factor."

"The Razer Blade Pro packs extreme performance in an ultra-portable form factor," says Rene Haas, vice president and general manager of notebook GPUs at NVIDIA. "Thanks in part to the performance-per-watt efficiency of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs, the new Razer Blade Pro is incredibly thin for a 17-inch gaming laptop."

At the heart of the Blade Pro is a full-HD 17-inch LED display linked in combination with the Switchblade User Interface (SBUI), allowing users to take advantage of tools and creative possibilities at their fingertips. Driven by 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys, a revolutionary LCD track pad and professional-grade and game apps, users can work harder and play harder. Razer's SBUI now includes several new, professional-grade apps and a wide array of new tools available at no charge, including programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro, Maya, GIMP and more.

The Razer Blade Pro also features 8 GB of fast 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and now comes standard with 128 GB of total solid-stage storage, with optional 256 GB and 512 GB SSDs. With solid-state storage technology, gamers will now experience up to four-times the performance of a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive.

Razer is also offering a new creative professional pricing program, allowing design students, game developers, development staff, Kickstarter partners and others to purchase Razer products, including the Blade Pro, at special prices. Selected developers and partners are now listed at www.razerzone.com/creativepro. Those not listed are encouraged to fill out an application on the page for a chance to be included in the program.

If the boot time is a couple of hours, then sure.

Anyway I really like the looks of it. There's a 14 inch version as well that looks even better.

This is actually quite cool.

I've never seen this performance level at only 0.9" thickness.

Razer: Looks cool - looks even cooler to the guy who sold his kidney for one. It's ok, they grow back. Dont like the touch pad button change thing, it's in the wrong place to be useful, most people use their right hand for mouse, very few people would want to move either hand to make use of it. A mere gimmick to push the price up. Nice idea, poor practicality.

To be honest with those specs this is the first time I would consider the Blade a laptop for games but its still way too overpriced. There are even crossfire/sli configurations available for that much. Why wont they just drop all that gimmicky bs and just make a simple powerful laptop. I'd bet they'd sell way more of those just because of the badge.

The 14" model looks like it packs a serious punch, it has the same internals as the 17" model only on a 900p display (you really don't need 1080p on such a small form factor) and in a much more portable chassis.

Now, if they could cram the same hardware into the Edge chassis, only replacing the quad core i7 for a dual core i7, I would buy that in an instant!

If anyone else would make a slim gaming laptop rather than hulking beasts, I am sure Razer will not be able to charge such a big premium.

I actually think the 14 inch one is pretty nice. There seems to be no price on Razer's website for it though.

Looks nice, nice that they moved the mouse pad too even if i am left handed it's not in the way while typing at least.

Price WOW like most lappy's over blown price tags.

They mouses aren't overpriced, which is also the same thing I ever bought from them.
Well to me they are even more so when they only last 2-12 months before failing of the same issue.

This is not the first time I have heard this. It's interesting that my Salmosa is still working after 4 and a half years of abuse - it even survived Diablo 3 :D. It is their first gen. mouse after all - maybe their quality went down in last few years?
