Experience and quality are some things that Razer gives importance to. This is why they decided to go with the Kaby Lake chip for the 14-inch Razer Blade laptop, even though they just updated to a GeForce GTX 1060 GPU last year. With the upgrade, the laptop is expected to provide a more immense and captivating experience.
Replacing the previous generation Core i7-6700HQ with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor which is a quad-core clocked at 2.8GHz to 3.8GHz. The upgrade is not that big but it allows a faster and more power efficient Razer Blade laptop. They also swapped to DDR4-2400 memory modules from the 16GB of DDR4-2133 RAM and added a 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) display option.
A 1TB PCle M.2 SSD can be picked aside from the 512GB and 256GB capacities. It also includes Wi-Fi 802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity (Killer Wireless-AC 1535), HDMI 2.0 output, a single Thunderbolt/USB-C port, three USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm headphone/mic combo port, 2MP webcam and Kensington security slot.
“More users embraced this flagship computer model in 2016 than ever before, and we are excited to make it even more available worldwide this year. Beyond gaming, it has been really gratifying to see people enjoying the power and portability of the Blade for video editing, music creation and software development,” Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said.
The Razer Blade laptop (with Full HD display) can be ordered directly from Razer’s site with a $1,899 starting price. It will be sold on different retailers starting February 20, while the 4K model is to be released during the second quarter of 2017.
