Gaming product expert Razer unveiled its new gaming laptop the Razer Blade, which is considered as the world’s thinnest and lightest 14-inch gaming notebook. The latest Razer Blade is now packed with the latest processors from Intel and NVIDIA, including more memory and QHD+ display.
It is now fitted with the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (3GB GDDR5 VRAM) and the laptop also comes with the state-of-the-art IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display panel technology.
The ultra-portable laptop features 16GB of fast 1600MHz DDR3L memory and includes solid-state storage with options for up to 512GB.
The gaming laptop now runs on the Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor, typically found in larger notebooks, which gives the 14-inch Razer Blade 2.6GHz of quad-core processing power and Turbo Boost speeds. Turbo Boost increases the speed of active cores up to 3.6GHz. Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology, on the other hand, provides eight virtual cores for improved gaming performance.
The Razer Blade automatically transitions between NVIDIA graphics and Intel HD Graphics 4600 through NVIDIA Optimus technology, which allows for the seamless transition that improves performance and battery life of the laptop.
“When we debuted the Razer Blade in 2013, we set the benchmark for gaming laptops – and other companies worldwide have followed in our footsteps,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We continue to listen as gamer needs evolve and the new Razer Blade again sets the industry standard by which gaming laptops are measured.”
Housed in a precision-cut CNC aluminum chassis, the Razer Blade features a custom-designed track pad and backlit gaming-grade keyboard that has anti-ghosting capabilities and programmable keys powered by Razer’s revolutionary Synapse software.
The Razer Blade is now available for order online from Razer Store or Microsoft Stores, and will be available in select Microsoft Stores on February 16. For more information, visit www.razerzone.com/blade. Its price starts at $1,999.
