Razer has just announced its latest Blade gaming laptop, updated for 2016 with newer hardware and a more affordable price.
The latest Razer Blade is powered by the latest 6th Gen Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M GPU with 6GB of VRAM. In terms of memory, the laptop comes with 16GB of DDR4-2133MHz memory and can be configured with either 256 or 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD that offers up to three times faster speeds when compared to traditional solid state drives.
All new Razer Blade models now feature a 14.0-inch 3200 x 1800 resolution QHD+ IGZO display with capacitive multi-touch. While the thickness is similar to its predecessor at 0.70 inches, Razer has managed to lower the weight to just 4.25 pounds. The laptop’s screen as well as the internals are housed in a CNC-milled aircraft grade aluminum chassis.
A key highlight of the new Razer Blade is the inclusion of individually backlit RGB keys. Users will be able to choose from millions of color options for the anti-ghosted keyboard thanks to the company’s Chroma technology.
The new Razer Blade starts at $1,999 in the US with a 256GB PCIe SSD. Pre-orders start today while the units are expected to start shipping in April.
