Razer has just unveiled its newest portable gaming rig, and if you are looking to play PC games on the go this is one not to bypass.
The new Razer Blade is 4.25 lbs. with a small profile of 13.6 (Width) x 9.3 (Depth) x 0.7 inches (Height).
Inside you’ll find:
- Intel® Core™ i7–6700HQ Quad-Core Processor with Hyper-Threading 2.6GHz / 3.5GHz (Base/Turbo)
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970M (6GB GDDR5 VRAM, Optimus™ Technology
- 14.0″ IGZO QHD+, 16:9 Ratio, 3200×1800, with LED backlight, with capacitive multi-touch
- 16GB dual-channel onboard memory (DDR4, 2133MHz)
- Killer™ Wireless-AC 1535 (802.11a/b/g/n/ac + Bluetooth® 4.1)
- Anti-ghosting keyboard with Chroma backlighting
- Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C™)
- USB 3.0 port x2 (SuperSpeed)
One of the sweet things about this gaming laptop is due to it having Thunderbolt™ 3. Because of how fast the new Thunderbolt is (40 Gbps) Razer will be selling a separate device that allows a desktop rated graphics card to be connected to the system. This will help those folks (like this writer) who are concerned about future proofing gaming laptops.
This laptop is currently available for Pre-Order on the Razer site (http://www.razerzone.com/store/razer-blade) with units shipping March 31st. They can be configured with either a 256GB SSD ($1,999) or 512GB SSD ($2,199).
