[Specs, Info and Prices] List of all laptops with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 / 3060 Max-Q (Updated: November 2021)

The NVIDIA Ampere GPUs have already been on the mobile market for more than half a year. While the GeForce RTX 3080 and 3070 pack high-end performance combined with a high price (at least in most cases), the GeForce RTX 3060 is the new mid-ranger that will allow more people to experience features like ray-tracing and DLSS without breaking the bank.

In terms of specs, this graphics solution uses a GA106 chip, 6GB GDDR6 memory combined with a 192-bit bus. Just like every mobile video card, perhaps there will be variants with different TGP versions, which applies to the Max-Q versions as well. At least on paper, GA106 should offer a decent performance bump compared to the GeForce RTX 2060 thanks to the hefty increase of the CUDA cores – 3840.

Without further ado, let’s see the laptops that can be configured with the new NVIDIA mid-ranger.

Update: While NVIDIA is ditching the “Max-Q” naming, many manufacturers still use it. Of course, we’ll update the specs of the laptops with the exact GPU variants, when the models arrive in our laboratory.

Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-41)

Acer Nitro 5 is one of the most popular devices out there because the series offers powerful hardware at reasonable prices. This year things look no different than any other – we can spot powerful Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) processors and NVIDIA Ampere video cards (up to GeForce RTX 3080).

You can choose among different display variants and it seems that Acer has something for gamers that love to play fast-paced online shooters – a 360Hz display option. There is a QHD panel too (1440p resolution) that has a 165Hz refresh rate and that sounds like a decent choice too especially if you need more screen space.

Acer Coolboost is here to cool down the internals – we’ll have to check how it’ll do the job when the machine is configured with strong and thirsty GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3080. As for connectivity, you can rely on Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. It seems that the 2021 Nitro 5 (AN517-41) is somehow compact for a gaming device with a profile of 24.9 mm and a weight of 2.70 kg.

AORUS 15G (RTX 30)

The AORUS 15G (RTX 30) is a pretty powerful laptop when it comes to CPU and GPU variants. You can pick devices with NVIDIA RTX 3060 and even with the RTX 3080 as well.

At least for now (based on the current official specs from the manufacturer’s Web site) the only CPU option is the 1‎0th Gen Intel Core i7-10870H which is an 8-core Comet Lake-H processor.

For such a potent device its dimensions are not bad at all – 23 mm profile 2.30 kg of weight. The other specs that look promising are the per-key backlit keyboard, a USB 3.2 Gen1 (Type-C) port, two M.2 slots, Wi-Fi 6, and a big 99 Whr battery.

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 G733

When it comes to powerful ASUS laptops, the ROG Strix Scar 17 G733 occupies the front row. This model can be configured with the most powerful AMD Zen 3 CPUs and with GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3080. However, if you don’t need all the power and glory of the highest spec variant, this laptop can be equipped with other good CPU and GPU options that will bring the end price down with a decent overall performance.

As for the displays, it looks like a lot of laptops will be offered with 1080p and QHD options this year, and the ROG Strix Scar 17 G733 is no different. It comes with a fast 360 Hz 17.3″ display and the QHD offering is an IPS panel with a 165 Hz refresh rate.

The design has a typical ROG look full with RGBs. Some other goodies – ASUS Aura Sync, mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB, and 90 Whr battery.

ASUS ROG Strix G17 (G713)

The ASUS ROG Strix G17 isn’t that different than the Scar 17 G733. The design is pretty identical with the contrast of dark-colored body and RGB illumination all over it. In terms of hardware, both are close too. This one lacks the top dog NVIDIA Ampere GPU but the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 are decently fast too.

CPU-wise, this one comes with processor variants from the Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) family that has a lot of threads and power under the hood. This one keeps the per-key RGB keyboard which is good no matter you’re a gamer or not.

Another good thing that comes straight from the upper model is the display options. Yes, the 360 Hz panel with 1080p and the 1440p IPS variant are available for configuring here as well.

More info and Full specs: ASUS ROG Strix G17 (G713) series

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 G533

The next one on the list is the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 G533. This is something like a 15″ version of the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 G733. This means that this one can be picked with the latest and fastest CPU and GPU options from AMD and NVIDIA. A configuration with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and GeForce RTX 3080 is mouthwatering but the price is jawdropping.

However, this thing can be bought with other least-powerful processors and graphics cards that will keep the price tag down. Just like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 – it still has tensor cores and enough power to run the newest titles with decently bumped visual settings.

The display impresses with its super-thin bezels and as for the panel variants, the Scar 15 G533 can still be picked with a 360 Hz Full HD display or with a 1440p IPS display.

ASUS ROG Strix G15 (G513)

Another 15-incher that belongs to the ROG Strix family – ASUS ROG Strix G15 (G513). Probably its name reminds you that it’s the little sibling of the ASUS ROG Strix G17.

Just like the 17″ model, the 15″ variant lacks the top-end CPU and GPU parts, but the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H is still a great processor for gaming and thing like content creating. In the GPU area, we found the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 that packs enough power for games like Cyberpunk 2077.

A for the profile thickness, 272mm is a reasonable number for a machine like that. No cut-down when it comes to display variants – decently fast 144 Hz and 300Hz options, and also there is a 1440p IPS panel with 165 Hz refresh rate. For connectivity, this one is equipped with a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C) port, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503

If the abovementioned ROG Strix laptops are too big for you, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503 can be on your shortlist. Still, this is a fast gaming laptop with GPUs like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060  (and even RTX 3080) and fast AMD 5000 processor options. Because it’s a slim device with just a 20mm profile, the CPU options are 35W-only to keep the internals as cool as possible.

This laptop features a cleaner look than its Strix siblings so you can be incognito in the office or in the park without drawing too much unwanted attention on your laptop. The G15 GA503 can be picked in black or white color depending on your personal preferences. Speaking of going outside with this laptop, the portability should be decent because the weight is just 1.90 kg which is decent for a gaming device.

The display options feature a standard 1080p display with 144Hz and a 1440p variant with 165Hz.

ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 (FX516)

Another ASUS 2021 notebook that is decently sized and powerful at the same time is the ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 (FX516). We reached the TUF series and more specifically – the ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 (FX516). It’s available in black and white color and it scales at 2.00 kg with a profile of 20mm profile it qualifies for a compact gaming notebook. Another nice touch is the highlighted WASD area which contrasts greatly with a black body.

The hardware options are no different than the other high-end and mid-range gaming laptops of 2021. In terms of hardware, like most of the gaming 2020 laptops, you can find NVIDIA Ampere video cards among the hardware options, and interestingly, for CPUs ASUS has decided to choose the Intel Tiger Lake-H family like the Intel Core i7-11370H.

This fella bosts 2 cleaning fans and up to 5 heat pipes for cooling the CPU, GPU, and VRM areas.

Alienware m17 R4

Alienware is stepping into 2021 with some alien-designed machine that can be turned into a powerful beast if you tick all the high-end hardware options. The Alienware m17 R4 is just what can you expect from a machine under this brand – an extraordinary design, a big 17.3″ panel, and a lot of power under the bonnet.

When it comes to CPU power, Alienware has decided to offer Intel 10th gen Comet Lake processors like the unlocked Intel Core i9-10980HK or Intel Core i7-10870H. Still, these ones decently fast chips so they should be enough to “feed” without a problem a GeForce RTX 3080. The other graphics cards on the list are the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

When it comes to dimensions this thing isn’t too big at least for our standards (don’t forget that we are talking about a 17″ laptop) – 16.9 ~22 mm profile thickness and 2.50 kg of weight sound good enough for such a device.

More info and Full specs: Alienware m17 R4 series

Alienware m15 R4

For people who think that the Alienware m17 R4 is too big, there is another smaller “alien” – the Alienware m17 R4. This is a 15-incher that still has a lot to offer as power and design. It maintains the unorthodox visual representation while keeping the internals powerful enough for most gamers.

The CPU and GPU options that you can pick from are no different than the bigger sibling – 10th gen Comet Lake CPUs and NVIDIA RTX Ampera video cards like the RTX 3060 (as well as 3070 and 3080).

No matter the big power under its shell, this laptop can be called a portable gaming notebook because with a profile of 18.3 ~20.5 mm and a weight of exactly 2.50 kg it’s not too big for what it offers.

When it comes to display options, the 4K OLED panel will bring the attention of some wealthy gamers and enthusiasts while the “normal” 1080p 360 Hz panel looks like a nice choice for most gamers.

GIGABYTE G7

The GIGABYTE G7 is a big device and probably that is related to the WINDFORCE cooling solution (we have to check that). The hardware seems decent enough for most people – 10th gen Comet Lake CPUs and fast NVIDIA RTX video cards.

This 17-incher only looks big but it’s not too heavy – 2.50 kg is a reasonable weight for a device with such a big display. Speaking of which, the GIGABYTE G7 comes with a 144 Hz IPS panel that is being surrounded by thin bezels.

For storage, this GIGABYTE laptop is equipped with two M.2 slots and a SATA one for HDDs or regular SSDs. The other thing that brings more attention to it is the RGB backlit keyboard.

More info and Full specs: GIGABYTE G7 series

GIGABYTE G5

The GIGABYTE G5 is the 15.6″ version of the bigger G7 model. Most of the specs are exactly the same. The most noticeable difference is the overall size – this laptop has a 27.9mm p[rofile thickness and 2.20 kg which is okay for a 15-incher.

The other specs are similar to the bigger sibling – three storage slots, Intel 10th gen Comet Lake processors, NVIDIA Ampere GPUs, and a backlit keyboard.

Gigabyte A7

A lot of users don’t want the highest laptop configuration, they want the best bang for their bug and some of them care about pure performance only. The Gigabyte A7 is something that many users are searching for – an unpretentious look combined with decently fast hardware and a big display.

Let’s start with the CPU – the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H should be enough for every new game on the market and the same applies to the full-blown NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 – a brand new fast mid-ranger that offers ray tracing capabilities alongside DLSS.

As we said, this laptop comes with a big screen. More specifically there are two 17.3″ IPS panel options – a 144 Hz and 240 Hz variant. The weight of this laptop is perfectly fine for a big 17-incher, while the profile is on the thick side with its 32.5 mm.

More info and Full specs: Gigabyte A7 series

Gigabyte A5

Just like the Gigabyte A7, its relative – the Gigabyte A5 is a normal-looking laptop that offers powerful mobile parts under the shell. If you don’t care too much about glowing RGBs and super gamer look, this laptop can be a good choice.

It can be picked with AMD Ryzen 5 5600H or AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and the top dog AMD Ryzen 9 5900H as well. In terms of GPUs, you can configure it with either of these two – the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

The USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C) port with display port capabilities can be a useful option for a lot of users, as well as the three storage slots (one SATA and two M.2 slots). For connectivity, we have Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0

HP OMEN 15 (15-ek0000, ek1000)

HP also updated their Omen 15 lineup with the latest hardware that corresponds to 2021. If you still remember, we have a review of HP OMEN 15 (15-ek0000, ek1000) which means that the updated devices will be decent gaming machines with some flaws here and there.

For starters, the CPU options seem okay in terms of power for most people. You can have this machine with up to Intel Core i7-10870H which is still a decent 8-core processor with 16 threads. For those who don’t need so much power, the other options are the Intel Core i7-10750H, and Intel Core i5-10300H. Still, the latter seems to be a good variant for some not-so-powerful GPUs.

GPU-wise, at least for now this device can be picked with the NVIDIA RTX 3060, and maybe the more powerful Ampere GPUs like the RTX 3070 will be available too. However, the RTX 3060 seems like a decent graphics card for 1080p gaming even if you have a high refresh rate monitor.

In terms of other specs, we can mention a profile thickness of 22.6 mm and 2.46 kg of weight. This one also comes with two M.2 PCIe slots and two RAM SODIMM slots which is good for future upgrades. Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 are on board too as well as an SD card reader so the HP OMEN 15 (15-ek0000, ek1000) looks like a complete setup for most gamers.

Lenovo Legion 7 (16″)

The Lenovo Legion 7 (16″) occupies a niche that isn’t too crowded (at least for now) because it comes with a 16″ display. This panel seems like e decent piece of hardware because it has a 1440p resolution and 165 Hz refresh rate.

When it comes to hardware capabilities, the Lenovo Legion 7 has nothing to hide. You can choose between 6-core and 8-core AMD Zen 3 processors and fast NVIDIA GPUs like the RTX 3060.

In terms of visual representation, this laptop doesn’t scream in your face “I’m a gaming machine” which makes it suitable for more people. The design is clean and it features thin bezels around the panel. For sure there are some RGBs but nothing too intrusive. Its keyboard follows the overall design – a neat look with a backlight.

As for the displays, we have an IPS panel with QHD resolution that has a 165 Hz refresh rate – more than enough for most users. With a weight of 2.50 kg and a 20.1 ~ 23.5 mm profile, this Lenovo machine is a normally-sized laptop.

More info and Full specs: Lenovo Legion 7 (16″) series

Lenovo Legion Slim 7 (15″)

As the name suggests, this is a laptop that is suitable for people who need a slim and fast machine. The Lenovo Legion Slim 7 is a notebook that impresses with its weight and profile – 1.90 kg and 15.9 ~18.9 mm. When you add the 15.6″ display to the mix, it seems that this buddy will fit with ease in most bags.

To achieve such a thin profile, Lenovo expectedly offers it with GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q that will lower the temperatures down thanks to reduced TGP levels and frequencies. On the CPU side, we can spot AMD Zen 3chips like AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and AMD Ryzen 7 5800H.

In addition, the display options include a 1080p panel with a 165 Hz refresh rate and a 4K display.

More info and Full specs: Lenovo Legion Slim 7 (15″) series

Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (16″)

The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (16″) isn’t that different compared to its relatives. Specs-wise, it’s close to the hardware of the Lenovo Legion 7 (16″). Just like the latter, this one features a 16″ display with QHD resolution and a 165 Hz refresh rate.

The CPU and GPU variants that you can pick from aren’t too different as well – AMD 5000 series processor and a GeForce RTX 3060 green GPU that belongs to the Ampere family.

This notebook isn’t as slim and light as the Lenovo Legion Slim 7 but its dimensions are corresponding to the internal hardware –  2.45 kg and 21.7 ~ 26.8 mm profile.

More info and Full specs: Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (16″) series

Lenovo ThinkBook 16p (Gen 2)

The Lenovo ThinkBook 16p (Gen 2) is another decently proportioned machine that comes under the Lenovo brand. It excites us with a 2.0 kg weight and a 19.9mm profile – not bad for a laptop that can be configured with a full-blown GeForce RTX 3060.

In terms of CPU power, you can get this one with an AMD Zen 3 5000 CPU, and if the RTX 3060 is too much for your daily needs, you can have it with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti which is still a decent mid-range video card. For display, this one comes with a 1440p IPS panel that has a 165 Hz refresh rate. No matter if you’re a gamer or you’re just using the laptop for working or daily routine tasks, this display should do the job in most cases.

For connectivity, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.0 are standard options for a machine from this class.

MSI GE76 Raider (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx)

One of the high-end MSI laptops of 2021 is the MSI GE76 Raider. This notebook is a looker – it looks great without featuring an obtrusive gaming design. At the same time, it’s a real powerhouse. Yes, you can have it with a GeForce RTX 3060 that is enough for most people but if your wallet is wide-enough there are GPU variants like the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080. When it comes to CPU power, there is an overclockable Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake CPU – Intel Core i9-10980HK, as well as some other Intel Comet Lake-H chips.

For a 17-incher, the weight of this thing isn’t that big but it’s not the lightest machine out there with 2.90 kg of weight. On the other hand, the profile is reasonable – 25.9mm.

Some typical MSI goodies are on board like the SteelSeries per-key RGB backlight keyboard. For wealthy gamers, the 300Hz Full HD panel should be more than okay while the 4K option will bring more working space.

The battery is a hefty one – 99.9 Whr. For cooling, MSI fitted the Cooler Boost 5 solution that should keep the monstrous hardware as cool as possible.

More info and Full specs: MSI GE76 Raider (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx) series

MSI GE66 Raider

A regular 15-incher with beast hardware, this is what truly describes the MSI GE66 Raider. And yes, this is a smaller version of the MSI GE76 Raider which means that the design is the same – not-so-gamer-ish, a bit incognito, and clean at the same time.

The hardware part is impressive – processor options like the Intel Core i9-10980HK and Intel Core i7-10875H and NVIDIA Ampere GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3080. For users who don’t need all that power, there are more-modest CPU options like the Intel Core i7-10750H which should be fine for most people.

Further down the road, we can see some interesting display options. At least for now, you can pick from three different 1080p display variants – starting with a 144Hz panel and the top dog is a 300Hz unit. Sadly, no 4K or QHD panels but it is what it is.

The big 99.9 Whr battery hasn’t been dropped which is good especially for users who’ll configure their devices with high-end parts that’ll need more juice. Some other specs – a SteelSeries RGB keyboard, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

More info and Full specs: MSI GE66 Raider series

MSI GP76 Leopard (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx)

The MSI GP76 Leopard is a laptop that can be bundled with the latest and greatest mobile hardware but most of the configurations aren’t that expensive like the GE66 series. This is possible thanks to some cuts here and there but at least on paper, everything seems fine.

For starters, this one comes with Intel Comet Lake-H CPU options and you can get it with GeForce RTX 3060 or even some other more expensive NVIDIA Ampere video card. MSI has kept the superb SteelSeries keyboard with per-key RGB control.

When it comes to displays, there is a big 144 Hz panel with 1080p resolution which is fine for gaming. In terms of dimensions, the device is okay with 25.9mm profile thickness and 2.90 kg weight – that’s a 17-incher, don’t forget that.

The battery is a 65 Whr unit that and we have a Cooler Boost 5.0 cooling with two fans and up to 6 heat pipes.

More info and Full specs: MSI GP76 Leopard (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx) series

MSI GP66 Leopard (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx)

Expectedly, there is a smaller alternative to the MSI GP76 Leopard and as you may already guess, that’s the MSI GP66 Leopard. The hardware part is no different than the bigger one – Comet Lake-H CPUs and video cards like the GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3080.

For storage, we can spot the presence of two M.2 slots – so, no options for HDDs here. We are glad to spot a USB 3.2 Gen1 (Type-C) with display port capabilities, SteelSeries keyboard, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1. The battery has a capacity of 65 Whr and the Cooler Boost 5.0 cooling should exhaust the heat as fast as possible.

Some word regarding the panel options – you can have it with some high refresh rate Full HD displays. For a 15.6″ laptop, the dimensions are normal – 23.4 mm profile and 2.38 kg. The other specs are no different than the bigger sibling – SteelSeries keyboard, 65 Whr battery, Cooler Boost 5.0 cooling, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

MSI GS66 Stealth

The Stealth series is represented by the MSI GS66 Stealth which is still a powerful device, but at the same time, it’s as light and thin as possible. This thing can house a GeForce RTX 3080 (or the least expensive RTX 3060) alongside unlocked blue CPUs like the Intel Core i9-10980HK but its profile is just 18 mm and the whole device weighs 2.10 kg. Without a doubt, this fella qualifies for a high-end notebook with easy portability.

For displays, there are several high refresh rate panels that correspond well with the great hardware that can be fitted under the shell of this laptop. No matter the slimness of this thing, there is a big  99.9 Whr battery which is good news if you like to use your laptop away from the charger.

The other specs are no different compared to the abovementioned MSI laptops – two M.2 slots, SteelSeries keyboard, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

MSI Stealth 15M (RTX 30)

The MSI Stealth 15M is another light and stylish offering. The design is a good one, with a clean look and it looks fine in black or white color. As a more modest notebook, this one is offered with a 1080p IPS panel with 144 Hz – there are no other variants but this one seems okay for everything if you aren’t too pretentious.

When it comes to power under the hood, we have an Intel Core i7-11370H which is a 10nm Tiger Lake CPU. In terms of GPUs, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 is the only possible option for now but this graphics card is a powerful mid-ranger that should be enough for every new and heavy gaming title.

When we take a look at the dimensions of this laptop, it looks like a gaming machine with great portability. The weight is 1.70 kg and the profile is just 16.1 mm – it sounds very good for a device with an RTX 3060.

More info and Full specs: MSI Stealth 15M (RTX 30) series

MSI GF75 Thin

Now it’s time for affordable MSI devices. We’ll take a look at the MSI GF75 Thin that still offers good and modern hardware but its end price is pleasant.

There is a big 17.3″ display with a high refresh rate and you can pick it with GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3060. For CPU, the Intel Core i7-10750H is at your disposal and it looks like it’s the only CPU option, at least for now. But that will certainly bring the price as low as possible.

There is an optional per-key RGB backlight keyboard – if you plan to game a lot on this thing it’s not a bad idea to pick this keyboard unit. In addition, there is a 720p Web camera, a mix of M.2 and SATA slots, and of course –  Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.

More info and Full specs: MSI GF75 Thin 10Sx series

MSI GF65 Thin

The MSI GF65 Thin has nothing to hide – it’s a budget laptop that still can be good for gaming. The top configuration looks promising considering the low price tag – Intel Core i7-10750H combined with a GeForce RTX 3060.

The default panel is a 60Hz IPS display and there is an optional 144 Hz variant with 1080p resolution. The latter is a decent choice for gaming especially for online shooters like CS:GO. Another strong side is the dimensions – 1.86 kg and a profile of just 21.7 mm sound good for an affordable laptop like this one.

The good news is that the two M.2 slots are still here and in terms of connectivity there are no cut-downs –  Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. Well, the keyboard glows only in red color but it’s fine for this kind of end price.

Razer Blade 15 (2021)

The 2021 version of Razer Blade 15 brings some important advantages to the table. This laptop can be equipped with a full-blown GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 but at the same time, its profile is just 19.9 mm. The weight is kept as low as possible too and this thing weighs 2.09 kg which can be considered as a very good result for a gaming laptop with powerful internals.

CPU-wise, this notebook is equipped with Intel Comet Lake-H CPUs like the Intel Core i7-10750H that should do the job for GPUs as powerful as the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

As for the displays, you can choose between 1080p and 1440p panels that both offer high refresh rates.

Some goodies – there is a backlit keyboard, a USB Type-C port, HDMI 2.1 port, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021)

It’s rare to find a 17-incher with a thin profile and normal weight but Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021) can offer even both. Let’s get straight to the dimensions – 19.9 mm is a greatly reduced profile thickness so this buddy can be fitted in a backpack more easily compared to some “fat” 17.3″ notebooks. On the other hand, the weight is 2.75 kg which isn’t impressive but somehow passable for a big laptop.

This device can be configured with a variety of display options. We can see a 1080p display with a bind-blowing refresh rate of 360 Hz, a 1440p panel (165 Hz), and there is a 4K variant as well which comes with a 120 Hz refresh rate and that’s a pleasant surprise.

Razer Blade Pro 17 can be equipped with the latest NVIDIA Ampere graphics solutions like the GeForce RTX 3060 or up to RTX 3080.
