Razer, one of the world’s leading gaming laptop companies, is back with a move to Intel’s seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors for its Blade, along with a few other essential additions in tow.
The display on the new Blade instead comes with a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, which is replacing the 3200 x 1800 IGZO panel. There’s a base Full HD 1080p resolution option, that won’t look too bad on the 14-inch panel either.
Under the hood, the processor has been swapped for a 3.8Ghz Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor. In case, you are worried about the graphical power don’t be as the GPU here is a 6 GB Nvidia GTX 1060 10 series card, which is almost identical to its desktop counterpart.
The storage options are also slightly more diverse now, with options going all the way to a 1 TB PCe M.2 SSD, alongside the base 256 and 512 GB options.
The RAM has also been upgraded to the recommended DDR4-2133 variety, with 16 GB of it available to you. Design-wise, the machine is as svelte as ever, weighing up to 4.3lbs and being 0.7-inch thick.
Connectivity options include USB-C Thunderbolt, 3 USB 3.0, HDMI 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi ac and headphone jack. There’s also a Kensington security slot as well as a 2 MP webcam to boot.
Pricing for the base model (1080p, 256 GB SSD), that’ll be available starting from next week, starts at $1899, while the 4K variant will be available come next quarter.
