Razer stopped by this week to introduce its new laptop. The 0.7-inch computer is called the Razer Blade and will be priced at $2,199.
“The Razer Blade laptop screams premium design and top-notch performance, and we are as happy as can be outfitting such a beautiful and powerful machine with our latest graphics processor,” said Brian Choi, NVIDIA senior product manager. “With nearly twice the graphics horsepower compared to last year’s model, the Razer Blade will be one of the most visually stunning, yet portable, gaming laptops the world has ever seen.”
The laptop also boasts a 3200x1800 touchscreen display and displays text with 262 pixels per inch.
“The Razer Blade sets the benchmark by which all laptops should be measured,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer's co-founder, CEO and creative director. “The Razer Blade, the world’s thinnest and most powerful gaming laptop, now comes with the best 14-inch notebook display on the planet.”
The lightweight laptop features 8 GB of fast 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and comes standard with 128 GB of total solid-state storage with options for a 256 GB or 512 GB SSD. The Razer Blade also comes with Dolby® Home Theatre® v4, featuring immersive audio-quality output that is custom-tuned to deliver an authentic cinematic sound experience.
“The 14-inch Razer Blade embodies Razer’s continuing drive to design the world’s best gaming laptops for those that need insanely powerful performance, the thinnest form factor and the highest resolution screen to game anywhere, anytime,” the company stated. “Razer sets out to do the impossible without compromising performance and, with the Razer Blade 14-inch laptop, users are able to do more than ever before on an ultra-portable system.”
The Razer Blade delivers up to six hours of battery life and includes the latest high-performance 802.11ac wireless connectivity.
