At a special event in Berlin, Razer has unveiled its Blade Pro, a 17.3-inch high-end gaming notebook powered by Core i7-6700HQ Skylake CPU and Nvidia's GTX 1080 GPU, describing it as "the desktop in your laptop".

Following the standard design of Razer notebooks with all-black color, glowing Razer badge at the back and CNC aluminum uni-body chassis, the Razer Blade Pro gaming notebook measures 424 x 281 x 22.5mm (WxDxH) and weighs 3.54kg. Built around a 17.3-inch IGZO multi-touch panel with 3840x2160 resolution and support for Nvidia G-Sync, the Razer Blade Pro notebook packs some serious hardware.

The heart of the Razer Blade Pro gaming notebook is the Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core CPU with Hyper-Threading support and 2.6/3.5GHz clocks paired up with Nvidia's Geforce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5X VRAM.

Other specifications include 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-2133 memory, 512GB, 1TB or 2TB of PCIe M.2 SSD storage in RAID 0, Killer DoubleShot Pro networking with Killer Wireless-AC 1535 802.11ac WiFi + Bluetooth 4.1 and Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet, mechanical keyboard with multi-touch glass touch pad, stereo speakers and array microphone, stereo speakers and 99Wh battery with compact 250W power adapter. It also comes with Windows 10 64-bit OS.

The mechanical keyboard is powered by Razer Chroma so you get 16.8 million backlight color options if you need that many while the notebook also comes with a special side-exhaust cooling system that can be controlled via Razer Synapse, alongside the keyboard, trackpad and backlighting.

Razer chose Berlin for its special launch event as it is currently making a big push in Europe, announcing that its previously released Blade Stealth and Blade gaming notebooks will now finally be available in Europe, at least some parts of Europe, including the UK, Germany and France.

On the other hand, the  Razer Blade Pro is still not available but should come in November with a price starting at US $3,699/€4,199/£3,499.
