Razer Blade 17 RTX 3080 Ti versus Razer Blade 17 RTX 3070 Ti - Which is the better laptop?
We just finished our review of the Razer Blade 17 with the RTX 3070 Ti. This naturally raises the question of whether there's a performance difference at all, or whether the RTX 3070 Ti actually gets the maximum performance out of the Blade's thin case.
In fact, it's impressive to see how Razer can fit such powerful hardware into the thin case while keeping temperatures and noise in check relatively well. And yes, the RTX 3080 Ti version definitely offers a significant performance boost, especially when gaming above Full HD resolution. This performance gain can already be seen in the Blade 17's native QHD resolution.
The slightly weaker version certainly has its advantages and can be recommended to content creators or gamers who don't require maximum frame rates. All of our test games run smoothly up to QHD, and although the Blade with the RTX 3070 Ti doesn't run quieter, it runs a bit cooler and with noticeably less energy consumption, which also has a positive effect on the battery life.
Finally, the price shouldn't be forgotten: In some cases, you have to pay up to 800 Euros (~$834) less for the model with the RTX 3070 Ti compared to the top configuration. You can find all the pros and cons in our detailed review of the Razer Blade 17 with the RTX 3070 Ti.
