The Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade 17 are now available with Intel Alder Lake processors and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
Yesterday, we reported that OEMs were on the verge of releasing GeForce RTX 3080 Ti-powered laptops, NVIDIA's latest mobile GPU. On cue, Razer has listed the Blade 15 and Blade 17, both available with up to an Intel Core i9-12900H. Alternatively, the company offers the pair with the Core i7-12800H, another Alder Lake processor with six performance cores and eight efficiency cores.
Currently, the Razer Blade 15 starts at US$3,699.99 with an RTX 3080 Ti, or €4,099.99 in the Eurozone. Both configurations come with a Core i7-12800H though, along with 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD. For some reason, Razer offers a 360 Hz FHD panel in the US and a 240 Hz QHD one in Europe. In comparison, the Blade 15 with a Core i9-12900H and an RTX 3080 Ti will set you back €4,399.99 in Europe and US$3,999.99 in the US.
By contrast, the Blade 17 starts at US$3,999.99 and €4,299.99 with an RTX 3080 Ti GPU, respectively. This time, Razer equips both configurations with identical hardware: a 240 Hz QHD display, a Core i7-12800H processor, 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD. Incidentally, the Core i9-12900H is a €400 upgrade in the Eurozone and a US$300 one in the US. Both configurations receive a 144 Hz UHD panel, too.
The Razer Blade 15 and Blade 17 with RTX 3080 Ti GPUs should start shipping on February 22. The same applies to all Alder Lake-based models, both in Europe and in the US.
