Razer announces new Razer Blade 17 with most powerful Intel processor ever found in a Razer laptop

Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today announced the next generation of Razer Blade 17 gaming laptops, built-on the latest 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H-Series Processors and featuring up to the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Laptop GPU. Making a first-time debut in the Blade 17 is the Intel® Core™ i9-11900H, the most powerful Intel processor ever found in a Razer Blade. With its many improvements, the new ultra-thin Blade 17 continues to be a powerhouse desktop replacement for gamers and creators alike.

With the inclusion of the i9-11900H processor, packed with eight cores and 16 threads, the Blade 17 reaches new levels of performance that were previously unheard of in an Intel-based Razer Blade. The CPU clocks in with a max turbo frequency of up to 4.90GHz, meaning users can expect drastically improved speeds both in-game and in multi-threaded workloads. By pairing it with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and display options up to a 4k Touchscreen, Razer has created one of the most powerful 17-inch gaming laptops on the market.

“The inclusion of the Intel® Core™ i9-11900H processor marks a milestone in the Razer Blade line, ushering in break-neck speeds and world-class features,” says Serhan Ceran, Director of Enthusiast Laptops at Intel. “Our latest mobile CPU for enthusiasts, matched with the exceptional quality of the Blade 17, creates a user experience sure to impress due in part to its power efficiency and performance.”

The Blade 17 also sports a new anti-fingerprint resistive coating to further reduce smudges on the exterior chassis after daily use. With the 11th generation Intel platform comes a bevy of quality-of-life improvements in the Blade such as faster storage, faster memory, and dual-sided Thunderbolt 4 connectivity.

The Blade 17 sports an improved Full HD 1080p webcam, providing true clarity for any need. It also doubles the number of dedicated microphones from two to four, making video calls a breeze, and houses four upward firing speakers for fully immersive gaming. The highly praised Razer Blade vapor chamber and touchpad also see further developments, the latter in the form of improved palm rejection, preventing accidental cursor movements while typing. The improved vapor chamber provides an even more efficient heat dispersion process to further prevent high temperatures on the system, cementing the Blade 17’s claim to be a true desktop replacement with its ability to accomplish any task thrown at it with ease.

The Blade 17 is rounded out with all the tried-and-true Razer features that fans can expect in a Blade, including per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting, immersive THX® Spatial Audio for dynamic sound that adds to the realism of any gaming or entertainment experience, and an abundant offering of ports to eliminate unnecessary dongles, including an SD card reader and USB-C power delivery.

Creative introduced Sound Blaster X4 the All-Rounder Sound Card

Creative Technology today announced the launch of the Sound Blaster X4, the upgraded successor to the well-received Sound Blaster X3 which sports nifty new smart features and better connectivity. The latest USB DAC features both discrete and virtual surround sound powered by Sound Blaster, the award-winning Super X-Fi headphone holography and Dolby Digital Live to deliver the ultimate movie, gaming and music audio experience. With the new SmartComms Kit (for Windows) offering auto-mute and two-way noise cancellation, the Sound Blaster X4 makes online communication easy and fuss-free for users working from home. In addition, the Sound Blaster X4 also comes with a plethora of connectivity options and convenient controls for a hassle-free set-up right out of the box, making it the ideal all-in-one audio upgrade for PC, Mac, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch users.



Audio Knockout with Super X-Fi
The Sound Blaster X4 features the game-changing Super X-Fi technology, which garnered 23 best-of awards at CES 2019-2020. It recreates the soundstage of a premium multi-speaker surround system in headphones, and personalizes it for a natural listening experience. Users will be able to enjoy a transformative audio experience that offers greater surround envelopment, depth, immersion and spatialization effects - like in a real cinema, a gaming battlefield or a concert hall.

The Sound Blaster Signature
The renowned Surround Virtualization technology, developed with more than 30 years of Sound Blaster's audio expertise, is yet another highlight for the Sound Blaster X4. It enhances the spatial information of the incoming audio and optimizes it to offer users a complete and immersive auditory experience, up to 7.1 discrete and virtual audio channels.

For Windows users, the Sound Blaster X4 features Dolby Digital Live encoding to transform audio content to this acclaimed multi-channel surround sound standard in real-time.

The Sound Blaster X4 comes equipped with the capability to drive studio-grade headphones of up to 600Ω with 114 dB audio clarity and 24-bit/192 kHz high-resolution playback.

For Simpler yet Smarter Communication
With the all-new SmartComms Kit, the Sound Blaster X4 serves as a versatile sound card that can offer users a simpler yet smarter way to communicate online. The VoiceDetect Feature allows users to speak freely without worrying about the mute button as the mute status switches based on voice detection — the microphone gets unmuted instantly when the user's voice is detected and is muted automatically when no further speech is detected. There is no need to meddle with any buttons, and users can stay focus on the conversations without any disruption.

On top of that, the two-way noise cancellation feature also works to reduce unwanted static background noises during online calls at both ends — NoiseClean-in for incoming audio and NoiseClean-out for outgoing audio — to deliver crystal-clear communication. Whereas, the CrystalVoice technology works to enhance the voice for clearer recordings and in-game communications. For users looking to explore more interesting features, the Voice Morph can offer that fun element as it changes the user's voice into different characters and accents with a list of tuned profiles.

These features are all conveniently accessible and customizable through the all-new Creative app, which is a new software platform available on both desktop and mobile with an integrated user interface across Creative's products.

Versatile Connectivity
Fitted with a newly added optical/line-in port, users have a more comprehensive range of options to connect the Sound Blaster X4 to multiple audio devices, from external microphones and headsets to PC, Mac, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and even the multi-channel speaker systems to instantly upgrade the audio quality and transform one's desktop setup into an one-in-all audio hub.

Fuss-Free Controls
The Sound Blaster X4 offers users hassle-free controls with a sleek turn knob design and an elevated look and feel compared to its predecessor. It is also fitted with dedicated buttons for Audio Balance, Audio Mode selection, Super X-Fi mode, as well as a speaker (Line-out) and headphones switch button to make it easier to toggle between devices.

Users can also easily control the volume levels between two audio sources with the Audio Balance feature on PC, Mac, PS5, or PS4. Once the setup is done, users can simply adjust the volume mix on the volume control knob by turning the knob left to right, and vice versa— a feature that will come in handy for users during conference calls while listening to music or podcasts, or while communicating in-game with teammates.

The Sound Blaster X4 also comes decked out with customizable EQ modes —Music, Movies, and Footsteps Enhancer—each of them specially tuned to enhance audio for different types of content to deliver the optimal audio experience.

With excellent audio performance, greater connectivity options, and smarter features, the Sound Blaster X4 is the perfect all-rounder sound card to work, learn and play from home with.
