Ray tracing support comes in addition to cores dedicated to assisting with real-time rendering and image processing, significantly speeding things up over the prior generation of NVIDIA GPUs. The Alienware m17 is 23mm thick and weighs 5.79 pounds, so it's still bulkier than most laptops.

"The award-winning Razer Blade 15 is an ideal device for the latest NVIDIA Turing graphics processors, up to the GeForce RTX 2080, allowing gamers to take their visual experiences to new levels", said Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan.

The company says this is its "thinnest and lightest" 17-inch laptop to date, using materials like magnesium alloy and copper to cut the weight down to just under 6 pounds, with a thickness of 23 millimeters. The RTX 2060 will cost $349. The company has also confirmed that buyers of the new card will receive their choice of Anthem or Battlefield V as a free game, while hardware partners releasing both stock and pre-overclocked models include Asus, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac.

This is backed up by earlier leaked benchmarks, which showed that the new GPU was faster than the GTX 1070 Ti in 12 out of 20 titles tested, and faster than the GTX 1080 in three. The smaller laptop will come in a UHD display option. The new m15, meanwhile, starts at $1,579.99.
