Razer has consistently impressed over the last few years with its 14-inch gaming notebook known as the Razer Blade and today, it has refreshed the laptop with new specifications. The new Razer Blade gets bumped up to Intel’s latest Skylake Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor, it also gets a bump in RAM with 16GB of memory running at 2133MHz.
The new Razer Blade still sports a 3200×1800 display but the body has shaved some weight off, coming in at 4.25 pounds at just 0.7-inches thick.
As with the previous model, the Razer Blade comes in a 256GB and a 512GB SSD model but both come with the same Nvidia GTX 970M graphics card, which has 6GB of VRAM. If you need more graphics power while at home, then this new Razer Blade does come with a Thunderbolt 3 port, which means it will support the Razer Core external graphics amplifier.
Finally, the new Razer Blade also comes with a fully RGB keyboard just like the new Razer Blade Stealth ultrabook. Pre-orders go live from tomorrow at $2000 for the 256GB and $2200 for the 512GB version.
KitGuru Says: We have reviewed the Razer Blade in the past and were very impressed with it. I must admit, if I were in the market for a new laptop and I had that sort of cash, I would be tempted to spring for the Razer Blade. Do any of you own a gaming laptop?
