Two models from Razer’s portfolio are added to the Varjo-Ready Computers Program, expanding the availability of computers that are compatible with Varjo’s highest-resolution virtual and mixed reality products.
Razer’s clientele of high-end gamers can now enjoy Varjo’s industry-leading VR directly through selected Razer Blade gaming laptops. The first Varjo-Ready computers by Razer include the Blade 17 gaming laptop with 3060 GPU and the Blade 17 with 3080 Ti GPU, delivering the ultimate high-performance combination for XR and VR experiences with Varjo headsets.

Featuring top-tier performance, the Razer Blade 17 sports NVIDIA RTX graphics up to a 3080 Ti operating at up to 175W TGP and 12th Gen Intel Core processors up to an i9-12900H. This power shines through factory-calibrated cutting-edge display technology and offers more than enough ports to connect other peripherals alongside Varjo headsets, making the Razer Blade 17 a VR-ready mobile powerhouse. More Razer products will be certified in the near future.
