Razer certainly tries to set a benchmark in gaming laptops wi (opens in new tab)th its Razer Blade series, and the latest Razer Blade Pro 17 laptop update further proves this point. As spotted by Windows Central (opens in new tab), the update brings a silky-smooth 240Hz display option. The laptop follows the footsteps of the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (opens in new tab) with a 240Hz screen and comes after the company revealed a 120 Hz 4K display option for the Blade Pro 17 last month. 

Unsurprisingly, the new display option does not come as a 4K (opens in new tab)panel, but rather as a 1080p (opens in new tab)panel. That being said, it does come with 100% coverage of the sRGB color gamut. The display has a peak brightness of 300 nits and is surrounded with side bezels that are just 6mm wide.

For graphics, those who opt for 240Hz are offered either an RTX 2070 Max-Q (opens in new tab) and the RTX 2080 Max-Q. This display option also comes with a 512GB SSD (the 1TB unit is only available with the 4K 120 Hz).

All units come with an Intel Core i7-9750H six-core 12-thread CPU, 16GB of DDR4-2667 RAM, a 70.5Wh battery, and per-key RGB Razer Chroma lighting. It's equipped with 2.5Gb ethernet, three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, Thunderbolt 3 through a Type-C connector, an SD card reader, an HDMI 2.0 port and a headphone/microphone combo jack.

Meanwhile, the Razer Blade 15 with a 144Hz FHD screen (opens in new tab) is reportedly getting a $100 price cut. A Razer Blade Pro 17 with the RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics card will cost $2799.99, whereas the variant with an RTX 2080 Max-Q is $3,199.99.
