Gaming computers are becoming more sophisticated, powerful, and elegant. The Blade 17 is more powerful than ever, constructed with a fast processor to run performance-demanding AAA games on the road. Razer, the world’s top gaming lifestyle brand, has successfully created its brand by blending cutting-edge technology into eye-catching, luxury designs. The laptop has a quicker 17.3″ display and is almost 25% smaller than its predecessor in a form that is just as svelte and small as a 15″ laptop.

GaN Systems high-quality transistors are used in the 280W AC charger that comes with the new, lightning-fast RazerTM Blade 17 gaming laptop. This provides extra power on the move for millions of ardent gamers, cutting-edge creators, and anybody else who desires a fashionable and well-made computer.


  • Razer designers leveraged the benefits of GaN Systems’ power transistors to make the charger smaller, lighter, more powerful, and environmentally friendly. The charger uses two GaN Systems’ GS-065-030-2-L GaN transistors. Each enclosed in a small, thermally efficient 8×8 mm PDFN package, the transistors can be switched at high frequency for maximum efficiency and power density. This combination of performance and cost-effectiveness makes it ideal for consumer electronics applications.

  • Using GaN Systems’ transistors, Razer delivers a charger with unparalleled performance in a stylish compact design. The new 280W charger included with the Blade 17 is smaller than Razer’s previous 230W charger, delivers more than 20% more output power, and is up to 50% smaller than legacy 280W gaming chargers. With GaN Systems, this new 280W charger makes the Blade 17 more portable than ever.

“As gaming laptops become more powerful and efficient, as well as thinner and sleeker, consumers want chargers that match the same profile,” said Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems. “We are delighted that Razer and other leading consumer electronics companies have selected GaN Systems’ power semiconductors for their newest products to meet increasing performance levels like Razer’s Blade 17.” Refer to the teardown report for more information about the Razor 280W AC charger.

The high-frequency switching of GaN enables the use of smaller components like capacitors, inductors, and transformers. Shrinking the components and the charger’s body reduces the use of rare earth elements and plastics – aiding in Razer’s and other consumer electronics companies’ efforts for a more sustainable future.

GaN Systems is the global leader in GaN power semiconductors with the most extensive transistors portfolio that uniquely addresses the needs of today’s most demanding industries, including consumer electronics, data center servers, power supplies, renewable energy systems, industrial motors, and automotive electronics. As an industry-leading innovator, GaN Systems makes it possible to design smaller, lower-cost, more efficient power systems. The company’s award-winning products provide system design opportunities free from the limitations of yesterday’s silicon. By changing the transistor performance rules, GaN Systems enables power conversion companies to revolutionize their industries and transform the world.
