The Razer Blade Pro 17 2022 is the first “gaming laptop” with a true 60Hz display — but does it offer the performance to take on the highest-end games? We put the new Razer Blade Pro 17 through the wringer to find out.

With AMD’s new Ryzen Mobile APUs in play, we take a look at the new ROG-exclusive gaming laptop, the ROG-exclusive gaming laptop, and the Razer Blade Pro 17 (2022). Of course, there’s a lot to like about the design and performance of the new ROG-exclusive gaming laptop, ROG-exclusive gaming laptop, and the Razer Blade Pro 17 (2022). Still, the standout feature is the display, which has been updated to support a 1080p screen with a 1ms response time.

Razer is known for its exceptional displays, and the Laptop 2021 is no exception. While the 17.3-inch screen means the laptop is a little less portable, we think the increase in size over the 15.6-inch version is worth it for more immersive gaming, not to mention the extra space for all the other general tasks you can perform on the device. Ultimately, it’s a personal choice, and the Razer Blade Pro 15 FHD 360Hz offers the exact same laptop, but in a smaller size and about $200 cheaper. You can also find a 15.6-inch laptop with a more powerful Intel i7-11800H processor if that’s the deciding factor for you. Some may wonder if 1440p is a better choice on a 17-inch screen, and there’s no doubt you’ll notice a difference between the resolutions, but given the relative size of the screen compared to a desktop monitor, it’s still not great, and we think 1080p does a fine job. If you’re a competitive gamer, chances are you’re still using a 1080p resolution in your game settings to maximize your FPS, and that’s the kind of customer the 360Hz refresh rate is aimed at. As we mentioned earlier, this is the highest refresh rate you can get on a laptop screen, and technologically speaking, this is impressive. The only drawback of this screen is the response time: The gray-to-gray response time is about 15ms, which is better than most gaming laptops but might put off competitive gamers who are used to desktop monitors with a 1ms response time.

Color scheme

Razer claims that the color gamut of this screen covers 100% of the sRGB and Adobe RGB space. As you can see in the image above, we recorded a gamut coverage of 97.2% of the sRGB spectrum, which equates to a gamut of 109.3% of the sRGB space – not quite 100%, but close enough for sRGB performance and still excellent for a gaming laptop. Unfortunately, the Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 results were well below 100% coverage, but that’s not surprising: A gaming-focused laptop is not the best solution if you want a color scheme that covers these colors.

Color accuracy

Out-of-the-box color accuracy shows an average delta of 1.34, which is a decent variation. The white point is good, almost perfect. Black depth is very good for an IPS panel, with a very good contrast ratio (IPS monitors typically have a ratio of less than a thousand to one). After testing the monitor, we quickly calibrated it with Display CAL. After calibration, the results were significantly improved. The white point has become almost perfect. The contrast decreased slightly, but it was still good. The average delta is 0.24, which is incredibly accurate and allows for precise colorwork in the sRGB space. You might get better results if you calibrate the screen as we did, but for light editions and games, the out-of-the-box settings should be fine.

Flatness 

We perform a panel uniformity test after calibration for all laptops we test to check brightness and color accuracy. We start with the most central point as a reference and then test all other areas of the screen (25 in total) to see how they relate to each other. In general, any average color change below 1.00 is good and is indicated in green in the figure below. However, the average consumer will not notice much difference at a value below 3.00. Of course, visual writers who work with color may have a sharper eye. As can be seen in the image above, most of the panels showed good uniformity except for the left side. Generally, one or more edges of the screen show anomalies. The only area with significant deviation is the upper left corner, with an average color deviation of 2.73, verging on egregious even to the untrained eye. The uniformity of the panel was generally pretty good, though, and you’ll only notice a difference if you’re performing calibration or other color-related workflows on the screen. Still, even then, it should be sufficient for most use cases. For gamers, this uniformity of the panel is perfectly acceptable, although, of course, the results may vary from laptop to laptop.

Brightness

We always like to conclude our color precision tests with a quick brightness test. On this particular laptop, we have a maximum of 320.30 cd/m² and a minimum of 14.87 cd/m², which is well within Razer’s specifications and generally a decent brightness range. For daytime use, we always recommend a brightness setting of 120 cd/m², which corresponds to a brightness setting of 37% in this laptop’s brightness control. There are a lot of high-end laptops out there, but not a lot of them have the performance to go with the price. It’s a common phenomenon that the bigger the brand, the higher the price. However, the Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021) changes that and is a great example of a step up in performance with almost the same price tag as its competitors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Razer Blade Pro 17 worth it?

A: After spending this year with its more powerful sibling, the Razer Blade 15, I’ve decided to take the plunge into Razer’s 17.3” line of gaming laptops. Assuming you’re not one of the many Razer fans who would be if you weren’t part of the Blade family, the Blade Pro 17 is a gaming version of the Razer Blade 14 with the same price tag. The newest Razer Blade Pro 17 is a powerful gaming laptop that packs in several upgrades over the previous generation, including a new 17.3-inch Full HD display, faster 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, support for Nvidia’s new Turing RTX GPU, and an upgraded cooling system. This new and improved laptop is also cheaper than last year’s model, thanks to a lower starting price of $1799.

Are Razer laptops reliable?

A: The Razer Blade Pro 17 innately does many things right—but one area I feel could have been improved is its overall reliability. We’ve taken the Razer Blade Pro 17 and put it through some tests to determine whether the laptop is reliable. A few years ago, Razer was known as a technology company that created gaming devices, but today, they are also known as a tech company that creates and sells laptops.  But which kind of tech company is Razer? While they may be known as a software company, they are more accurately known as a hardware-software company.  This means that Razer focuses on designing and producing products that look and feel more like a real computer than any other laptop.

Are Razer Blade laptops good?

A: The Razer Blade Pro is the company’s newest ultrabook, and its specs are nothing to sneeze at a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, GTX 1070 graphics, and a 17.3-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The device is also equipped with Thunderbolt 3, which allows for a data transfer speed of up to 40Gbps. In short, it’s a powerful ultrabook that packs a punch. Razer’s gaming laptops have always been extremely expensive—the Blade Pro 17 is no exception.
