    Do we have idea if the SSD is PCI 4.0?

    This.

    I also wonder how close the Blade 15 3080 105W is to the Blade 17 3070 130W. With the better thermals of Blade 17, I am guessing that they might be close.

    the 360hz display is just a tad bit unnecessary

    What is the number of RAM bank groups for the 16g models? Is it 4 bank groups (double sided) of 2 bank groups (single sided). I would love to know this since it makes a huge difference in high fps games.

    Hello friends,

    New Razer Blade 17, it is as successful as Razer Blade 15 with 17" display.
    I really like.
    Perfect for content creators, streamers, home, work and college.
    New Intel Core i7-11800H CPU and 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD are the biggest innovations that justify its purchase.
    If you have the cash, want a new laptop, treat yourself. ^ _ ^

    My only question for the 17" is the battery life. I see that the 17" have a 70Wh battery while the 15" gets a 80Wh battery. When powered from the wall, the 17" should kill the 15" in performance with the extra power to the CPU and GPU and getter cooling. For gaming, these laptops are tethers and that is fine. I still need to get through the day of working and web surfing on the battery. I am hoping that the 17" can be dialed in for 5 hours at lease.

    Personally I recommend Razer Blade 15 if you move around often.
    Its screen is smaller, it will consume less.
    Also favor OLED technology and low refresh rate.

    I was looking at the 15" Advance 3070 and 3080 and they both have 80Whr batteries. I do see what you are seeing for the Basic and the 3060 laptops. For me, the advance just for the bigger battery is already worth the extra cost.

    The 17" is a bit more than just that. From the Razer store videos, I see that the CPU and GPU get more power. The 3070 in the 15" is up to 105W where the 17" with the better cooling goes up to 130W. I did not see how much more power the CPU gets, but my guess is another 10W or so.

    People again not understanding they cheaped out and gave us just 8gig vram on the 3080 compared to last version which was 16gig on the 1080p screen.. all they did was up the watts…

    CPU is 65W at PL1, which, together with the 130W GPU, makes me wonder if the 230W adapter is throttling.

    i thought this too… this was almost the razer laptop I bought because I waited from the early 2021 model because the wattage was garbage for the peice and now they do this shiet..
