    Razer Blade Pro 2017 (i7-7820HK - GTX 1080) Laptop Review - Notebookcheck.net

    What's the point with offering CPU overclocking if the Cpu can't hold base clock frequency (2.9GHz) with stock clocks?

    Verdict

    Razer Blade Pro 2017, test device courtesy of Razer Germany.

    Thanks to the 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, the SSD RAID, and the GeForce GTX 1080, it certainly is not lacking in performance power – though we do feel compelled to criticize Razer for the soldered RAM. The display in the UHD edition we tested is not beyond reproach either. On the one hand, the IGZO panel scores points for its extensive color space coverage, low black value and strong contrast. On the other, its low brightness and reflective surface are quite irritating – not to mention the massive problems our test model had with lighting inconsistencies.

    There is also plenty of room for improvement when it comes to the sound of the integrated speakers, as well as the laptop's energy consumption rates (which negatively impact its battery life). But the Blade Pro loses the most points for its high temperatures and loud noise levels. Ultimately, games can only truly be enjoyed with headphones over the ears. It appears the cooling system is only fit to serve a GeForce GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 Max-Q. Given all these deficiencies on top of its luxury price, the 4K version will be hard-pressed to successfully compete with the rest of the (mostly fatter) laptops on the 17-inch market.

    Razer even surpass other OEM *s by offering even higher overclock for 7820hk. Not many of its competitors can or will offer 4.3GHz as Razer. It's a big difference between throtlling down to *2.794GHz* and instantly overclock to 4.3GHz. Marketing or stupidity... I don't know, bruh. Everything of info can be confirmed here on Razer's web page.

    This is the very question everyone is asking.

    The very same issue is present in the new macbooks, the high end CPU's are throttling so hard there's little to no difference between the CPU's anyways... brilliant.

    ok so it dies sooner LMAO razer products burn up. Went through 7 laptop replacements (for my 765m edition) in 2 years. If they cant cool a 765m how can you expect them to cool an oc cpu and a gtx 1080?

    Proprietary throttling algorithms, use weaker flimsy psu than normal and put power cap for max power draw in firmware or hardware level:D

    there is a real reason why actual Razer Blade Pro owners don't bother to read up and post in the notebookreview forums anymore.

    Might as well bury your head in the sand. Razer's average customer was never too tech savvy in the first place.
