The Razer Blade gaming console gets a QHD screen

Razer made several improvements to its 2021 gaming laptop lineup specifications, including the Razer Blade 15 and Razer Pro 17 with QHD displays.

Now you get a 1440p monitor with a fast refresh rate and G-Sync variable refresh rate technology built into Gv Synia.

Until recently, 1080p and 4K were the only display options on gaming laptops, although 1440p is becoming increasingly popular among PC gamers looking for a new standalone display.

Laptops with cutting edge blades are equipped with Nvidia's new GeForce RTX 3000 Series graphics chipset, so most games can be played on a 1440p HD screen without any problems.

The Blade 15 Advanced (the most powerful model from Razer) with GeForce RTX 3070 and G-Sync-enabled QHD display can cost up to $ 2,500.

You can customize this model with a special variant of GeForce RTX 3080 containing 16GB of VRAM.

The larger Blade Pro 17 starts at $ 2,300 and is equipped with GeForce RTX 3060.

Razer still uses the GTX 16-series chipset to make the cheapest Blade 15, starting at $ 1,500. It comes with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU, and a customizable GeForce RTX 3070 GPU for $ 2,000.

All models can be ordered for the first time from the Razer online store, with Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17 coming on January 26 and Blade 15 Advanced on February.

The company is committed to developing 10th generation Intel Comet Lake processors for blade laptops.

The budget configuration of the Blade 15 features six-core Core i7-10750H processors, while the Blade 15 Advanced and Blade Pro 17 include eight-core Core i7-10875H processors.

All models have Thunderbolt 3 ports and a newly added HDMI 2.1 output that can reach 4K up to 120fps.

Regardless of these two ports, the remaining ports depend on the computer you're using: Blade 15 has an Ethernet port, while Blade 15 Advanced has no port.

However, Razer makes up for this with a UHS-III SD card reader, Windows Hello IR webcam, support for 20V fast charging over USB-C, support for Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.

Another noticeable change to Razer is its RAM and user removable storage.

Razer added a second M.2 slot (the total storage space between the two slots is 4 TB) so you can add more storage to your storage without replacing it.
