Razer Blade 17 laptop review: Now with 130 W TGP GeForce RTX graphics

Two years in and still going strong. Razer's latest 17.3-inch gaming laptop gets a swift name change alongside several internal updates. If you're still holding onto a GTX gaming laptop, then it's now looking like a good time to upgrade.

Razer has always been quick to jump onto new CPUs and GPUs whenever they become available. Results are often excellent with appreciable gen-to-gen gains while they can other times fall flat. The Ice Lake Blade Stealth, for example, proved to worse than the cheaper Whiskey Lake-U version it was supposed to replace. Thankfully, this latest 17.3-inch Blade model has no such problems.

The 2021 Blade 17 succeeds the Blade Pro 17 by dropping the "Pro" and adding in new Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake-H processors into the mix. The GPU and display also get upgrades from 100 W TGP and 300 Hz to 130 W TGP and 360 Hz, respectively. The chassis design and physical features are otherwise identical to the original 2019 model that launched with 9th gen Coffee Lake-H CPUs and Turing GPUs.

Alternatives to the Blade 17 include other high-end ultrathin gaming laptops like the MSI GS76, Asus Zephyrus S17, Acer Predator Triton, or the Gigabyte Aero or Aorus series. Our exact configuration is currently shipping for $2799 USD.

Communication — Wi-Fi 6E now Standard

For most users, Wi-Fi 6E will perform the same as existing Wi-Fi 6 laptops as users will need a Wi-Fi 6E router to exploit all of its benefits. Transfer rates are remain stable and mostly unchanged from last year's Wi-Fi 6 model when paired to our Netgear RAX200 test router.

Webcam — 1080p Instead of 720p

The camera is indeed sharper this time around as shown by our comparison images below. Color accuracy, however, does not appear to be any better or worse. A webcam shutter continues to be missing.

Maintenance

There are some slight changes to the positioning of the screws on the Blade 17 when compared to the Blade Pro. Otherwise, most everything else appears to be identical.

Input Devices

All keyboard keys and symbols are lit on our US unit. We suspect that some symbols may not be lit yet again for models overseas since Razer has made no external changes to the chassis.

Display — Ultra-Smooth 360 Hz

Razer is using the same 1080p 360 Hz AU Optronics B173HAN05.4 IPS panel for its Blade 17 as Asus is using for its Strix Scar 17 G733QS. Thus, the viewing experience between these two laptops are very similar. This particular panel offers full sRGB coverage with very fast response times and a respectable contrast ratio of nearly 1000:1 to be good for both editing and gaming alike. Its attributes are nearly the same as the 300 Hz Sharp panel on last year's Blade Pro meaning users are really only paying for that slightly faster refresh rate.

Other display options include 165 Hz 1440p (QHD) with full sRGB coverage and a glossy 4K touchscreen with full AdobeRGB coverage. The latter is also expected to be brighter than our 360 Hz option (~400 nits vs. ~300 nits).

Color space covers 100 percent of sRGB just as advertised by the manufacturer. For full AdobeRGB coverage, however, users will have to consider the 4K option instead.

The display is in need of calibration out of the box. Color temperature is far too warm for average grayscale and color deltaE values of 7.9 and 4.59, respectively. Though nothing terrible, we definitely expected more from a high-end gaming laptop retailing for almost $3000 USD. Grayscale and colors would improve significantly to average deltaE values of less than 2 each once we calibrated the panel ourselves as shown by our Calman results below.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.4 ms rise
↘ 4.4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.6 ms rise
↘ 2.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17031 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility hasn't changed from last year's model since contrast and maximum brightness continue to be almost the same. The 4K touchscreen option may be brighter, but users will have to take into account the increase in glare from its glossy overlay as well.

Performance — 130 W TGP GeForce RTX Graphics

Users can now choose between the 11th gen Tiger Lake-H Core i7-11800H or Core i9-11900H to replace last year's 10th gen Comet Lake-H options. Aside from the obvious performance increase, the new CPUs also natively support PCIe4 and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity. Resizable Bar, Dynamic Boost 2.0, and WhisperMode 2.0 are all supported.

Advanced Optimus (or Optimus 2.0) is not supported meaning users will still have to manually switch and reboot between the dGPU and iGPU via the Razer software. Expect a small hit to performance if running on Optimus mode. We recommend users become familiar with Razer Central as important customizations and performance options are found here.

Processor — No AMD... Yet

Our Core i7-11800H is an excellent step up from the Core i7-10875H as found on last year's Blade Pro. Multi-thread performance in particular is 25 to 40 percent faster to finally be on par with competing Zen 2 or Zen 3 CPUs like the Ryzen 7 5800H. Upgrading to the Core i9-10900H is expected to only bring a 5 to 10 percent increase in raw performance based on our experience with other Core i9-11900H laptops like the MSI GS76 Stealth.

It's worth noting that the Ryzen 9 5900HX in the Blade 14 is neck-to-neck with our i7-11800H in multi-thread performance while being behind in single-thread performance by about 15 to 20 percent.

System Performance

PCMark 10 scores are noticeably higher than any Blade Pro laptop we've tested in the past. The leap can be partly attributed to the PCIe4 NVMe SSD that Tiger Lake-H chipsets natively support and the boost in multi-thread CPU performance.

GPU Performance — Slightly Faster than a 100 W GeForce RTX 3080

Graphics performance is excellent with 3DMark results that are 10 to 15 percent faster than the average laptop in our database equipped with the same RTX 3070 GPU. In fact, raw performance is essentially on par with last year's Blade Pro RTX 3080 SKU. It's still significantly slower than a "proper" desktop RTX 3080, however, which is more of an Nvidia thing than a Razer thing.

Upgrading to the Blade 17 RTX 3080 SKU will likely bring very minor performance benefits over our RTX 3070 SKU of just a few percentage points based on our experience with at least a dozen other RTX 3080 laptops thus far. User should also keep in mind that frame rates don't necessarily need to reach 360 FPS in order to exploit the benefits of a 360 Hz display.
