6 new models of the Razer Blade 17 are powered by an Intel Core i7-11800H CPU with a boost clock speed of 4.6GHz. Then, there is one Razer Blade 17 model that uses a Core-i9 11900H CPU with increased performance up to 4.9GHz.

In terms of storage, the 7 new Razer Blade 17 models use a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD. Razer also provides 16GB RAM in the 6 Razer Blade 17 models and 32GB RAM in the top model.
For the display, Razer provides 3 screen options on the Razer Blade 17, QHD, FHD, and 4K panel screens. Refresh rates also vary, from 165Hz to 360Hz.
