The new Razer Blade Pro features the latest Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and next-generation NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU. It is the most powerful system ever built by Razer and the thinnest notebook available with a GTX 1080. Other highlights on the new Razer Blade Pro include Thunderbolt 3 for advanced connectivity options, 32 GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory, up to 2 TB of PCI M.2 SSD in RAID 0 storage and a built-in SD card reader.

Even more remarkable is the system's thermal management system. This all new thermal management system in the Blade Pro now includes the worlds thinnest manufactured vapor chamber cooling solution in a notebook. The vapor chamber reduces heat resistance and hotspots by spreading heat quickly, evenly and efficiently. A custom fan design and dynamic heat exchanger are paired with the vapor chamber to maximize heat dissipation. This allows the Razer Blade Pro to be the most powerful computer ever assembled in such a thin chassis.

The rest of the desktop replacement notebook offers a similar no-compromises approach. A stunning 17.3-inch 4K IGZO monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology produces the smoothest possible framerates. The display offers 100 percent Adobe RGB color accuracy to deliver stunning visuals to gamers and professionals.

Additionally, the Razer Blade Pro is the first notebook to utilize Razer's Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switches. Each switch features a true actuation and reset point. Presses are registered with 65 grams of force, mimicking the feel of full-size mechanical keyboards. The keyboard and trackpad are also Powered by Razer Chroma. This technology unlocks a virtually endless array of dazzling lighting effects that can be customized by the user or synced to display in-game events.

The specs for the Blade Pro exceed minimum hardware requirements of HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and OSVR HDK 2, making it one of the most mobile VR-ready devices for enthusiasts and developers.

What is new?
They share the below capabilities--new to span across these tiers-that customers will see immediate benefit from:
+ Integrated Snapdragon X9 LTE modem Cat 7 downlink / Cat 13 uplink (300Mbps DL; 150Mbps UL), engineered to achieve up-to 50 percent faster upload speeds than the X8 LTE

+ Dual camera support for clear imaging and photos across a wide variety of lighting and shooting situations

Each processor also has a number of unique capabilities that deliver differentiating value for OEMs and users:
Snapdragon 653
The Snapdragon 653 processor is engineered to support 10 percent higher performance compared to the 652, thanks to a CPU speed increase up-to 1.95GHz, along with additional architectural improvements. Addressable RAM has doubled, up to 8GB, designed to improve multitasking and overall system performance. The Snapdragon 653 also implements Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) on VoLTE calls-another way of saying your calls can sound incredible when using this service on your carrier’s network. The Snapdragon 653 is pin and software compatible with Snapdragon 650 and 652.

Snapdragon 626
Snapdragon 626 is designed to deliver CPU speeds of up-to 2.2GHz, for as much as a 10 percent performance improvement over the 625, and also implements Qualcomm TruSignal antenna boost.  TruSignal is engineered to improve signal reception in congested areas, making voice and data connections reliable and with superior quality. Snapdragon 626 is pin and software compatible with Snapdragon 625, and software compatible with the Snapdragon 425, 427, 430, and 435 processors.

Snapdragon 427
By adding the Snapdragon X9 LTE modem to this processor, OEMs will have the option to swap out the Snapdragon 425 for carriers in regions that support the faster speeds offered by this Cat 7 modem, saving both time and cost on device design. The Snapdragon 427 is the first in the Snapdragon 400 family to offer TruSignal antenna tuning. TruSignal is now available and improving voice and data quality on Snapdragon 800, 600 and 400 tier processors. Snapdragon 427 is pin and software compatible with Snapdragon 425, 430 and 435, and software compatible with Snapdragon 625 and 626.
