DESIGN


Do you know that outfit acts as a first impression ? Do you further know that if the first impression of any object becomes a good impression then the object might become an ensnaring one for the mob ? Somehow Razer has converted the first impression of their Razer Blade 17 Pro 2020 into a good impression . But how ? What have they done ? Let me give a blueprint of it's design. Let's see whether it ensnare you or not .

Razer Blade 17 Pro has been made upon of CNC Aluminium. I guess that one thing has already hit your mind after hearing the term " Aluminium ". Yes, it's strength and durability, as far I am sure. Ebony black colour has been used coat the laptop. On the middle part of the lid, there are three snakes pointing in three different directions and it's colour is black and jade green. But what if this snake logo is made to glow with a particular light ? Won't it be a slight innovation ? Even this innovation gonna rejoice you, especially, when you're active with your lappy during night time or some places where the light is low. Good to know that Razer Blade 17 Pro has been subsumed with this backlit logo feature.


What do you expect after opening the keyboard ? Something good you gonna view. The deck is made up of Onyx Aluminium which is as beautiful as it will look when you see in real.


Have you ever been suffocated when you stayed in a hot room ? Simply, you go and open the windows to let the hot air flow out of your rooms . And it's clear as bell that more the windows are in your room, more is the outflow of hot air. Similarly, you laptop undergoes temperature elevation issues when the laptop performs some intensive tasks , for example, gaming. This heats up your system and drain away the energy of the device. If, just like windows, there are air vents in the device that drain out the hot air, then the device could maintain its health chart in a right way. Fortunately, there is a wide gap above the keyboard and on that gap, air vents have been fitted to expel the hot air. No more burning your lap.



Dimensionally, it measures 6.1 pounds ( 2.766 kgs ) and measures 15.6 x 10.2 x 0.8 inches which gives it an image of a lean and thin device which doesn't make you feel heavy while you carry it. Much lighter than another gaming behemoth, that is, Alienware Area 51m R2 ( 10 pounds ) . In terms of bulkiness, Razer Blade 17 Pro even stays behind than its other, such as, Alienware Area m17 R3 ( 6.6 pounds ).


DISPLAY



How can an object be quoted as a "charismatic" one if it doesn't soothe your eyes ? O.k., may not be at first sight, but from second time onwards it must work if it's winsome enough. But incase of Razer Blade 17 Pro's 17.3 inch Full HD Display panel , you might not need to pause yourself for the second time, rather, your first sight towards the Blade 17 Pro's Display would gonna allure you. Aren't you desirous to know it's credentials ? Let me jot down.


How much happy do you feel when you get several options while answering a set of questions in an examination ? If you ask me , I feels good and even you too, I believe. But one thing. Does this same option facility knock our door when we are about to purchase Razer Blade 17 Pro ? Well, you would be happy to know that Razer Blade 17 Pro's Display panel is available with two options, that is, a) 1920 x 1080-pixel non-touch Display, and b) 3840 x 2160 pixel touch Display. The former's and latter's one has a refresh rate of 300 Hz and 120 Hz respectively. 300 Hz refresh rate of 1920 x 1080 Display panel is really great which keeps the screenplay smooth and blur-free. But, we can't say that 120 Hz is not up to the mark. It's also quite good in keeping the screenplay refreshed.


What about brightness? Yeah that's a crucial term when you talk about display features. Everything is fine with Razer Blade 17 Pro . Do you know that 1920 x 1080-pixel Display panel shines with 300 nits of brightness ? And it's 400 nits of brightness in case of 3840 x 2160 Display panel. Visually clear and colourful. In some cases, colours like deep red or green gets popped out of the screen. So deep and concise the colours are that once you looked at it, you might get trapped into it for a bit. Details are clearly figured out .


Color reproduction is awesome. It measures 119% of sRGB color gamut, despite the fact, it's does not equalise the 140% premium gaming laptop average. But 119% gives a good level of vibrancy. That's for sure.


Screen of Razer Blade 17 Pro is Anti-glare coated along with matte finish in nature. Anti-glare dries up all those unwanted glares which causes unwanted reflections on the screen and sucks our eyes. That's what Anti-glare coating do.



KEYBOARD



Razer Blade 17 Pro's keyboard is an island-style keyboard . Not big enough in size. Edge-to-edge keyboard is absent in Razer Blade 17 Pro. Instead of making it's keyboard an edge-to-edge one, Razer has put two vertical audio channels at both sides of it. There's a saying , " You lose something in order to win something " . No ifs, ands or buts because something similar is being seen here. You are getting those two good length vertical audio channels or top firing speakers due to which you are losing an edge-to-edge bigger keyboard.


Someone may ask that whether the company was not able to set the speakers at the bottom part of the device which could have further expanded the keyboard. Let me clear this in the audio part .


Keys maintain a proper space in between them that enables smooth and faultless typing . Good effort by Razer's manufacturers that they were able to settle those arrow keys in this small sized keyboard. It's keyboard goes to the next edge of beauty when you turn on Razer's RGB Chroma lighting which can be applied on every individual key. Chroma lighting features 16.8 million colours. Can you understand the gravity of this figure ? 16.8 million colours !! And if it seems less to you then also consider it's 11 presets. Such a phenomenal combination ! It totally takes the gaming arena to an another level where you can discern your dream of computer gaming in the form of reality.


The glass touchpad is really smooth to lay your fingers on it. Gives a nice response to your finger swipes, clicks and scrolls. It's touchpad features Windows 10 gestures such as pich-to-zoom, three fingers scrolling etc. .

AUDIO


Yes, I am ready to answer your question here that why the speakers were not settled in at the bottom part. Suppose the speakers are configured at the bottom side. When you keep your laptop on a desk or on your lap, the sound faces the desk or your lap as a barrier to get popped out the the speaker freely. So , won't we confronting the same problem if the speakers are placed on the top side ? Obviously, not. You won't be facing that because there would be no barrier then. This precludes deadening of the actual tone of the sound and it's acuteness. Thus, position of the speakers matters and in Razer Blade 17 Pro, this has avoided muffling of sound.


Position-wise it's ok. But what about it's inner merit ?


Honestly speaking, Razer Blade 17 Pro's speakers cannot give that much top-notch quality sound. However, these top firing speakers reach each and every corners of the room. But if you are planning to do party bash with these top firing speakers then it wouldn't be good enough. I won't say that the sound is not clear . It's clear but can't be called crystal clear. While gaming, the sound acts fine and sharp.

PERFORMANCE AND STORAGE



Indubitably, your memory is fine and sharp , but, still, I would like to make you remember that Razer Blade 17 Pro is a gaming laptop and, no doubt, it's performance really matters. Let's take a closer view of how it is engineered to fill up the bucket of performance.


Powered by Intel Core i7-10875H processor with 16 GB of RAM , Razer Blade 17 Pro is an epitome of a skilled device . It's expeditious processing lifts up its performance. Razer Blade 17 Pro starts with an initial speed of 2.8 GHz and boosts up to 5.1 GHz. This speed range deserves a round of applause. Multiple tabs run together without any sign of stutter and all.


Razer Blade 17 Pro transcode a 4K video to 1080p in 9 minutes and 31 seconds. It's slower than Alienware m17 R3 ( 7 :16 ) , Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 ( 6:59 ) , Dell G5 15 SE ( 6:43 ) .


512 GB PCle NVMe SSD of Razer Blade 17 Pro duplicated 4.97 GB of files with the transfer rate of 848 megabytes per second, less than 1082.8 megabytes per second of Alienware m17 R3, but surpasses 400 mbps of Dell G5 15 SE .


Graphically, Razer Blade 17 Pro features Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU with 8 GB of VRAM . Undoubtedly, RTX 2080 is a super beast that shapes the gaming platform. During the Shadow of the Tomb Raider test, the laptop scores 98 fps, outclasses 72 fps which is an average of premium gaming laptop. On the Grand Theft Auto V benchmark, the Razer Blade 17 Pro scores 89 fps surpassing 85 fps average category.
