Today Razer have announced that its 17 inch Blade Pro and 14 inch  version have been updated with a new NVIDIA 765M GPU from the previous NVIDIA GTX 660M, they will also be swapping the Intel Ivy Bridge processor for a fourth gen Haswell chip.

The Pro pack will now also come with a 128GB SSD as standard, which can be optionally upgraded to either 256 or 512GB, alongside which there’s also a 74Wh battery, replacing the previous 60Wh cell.
