Razer today announced a new Razer Blade gaming laptop. The company says that it has improved the specifications across the board so the notebook is powerful than it’s predecessor. What’s going to appeal most to customers is the fact that even though it has better specifications, the new Razer Blade gaming notebook is actually cheaper.
Under the hood of the new Razer Blade, you’ll find the latest 6th generation Intel Core i7 quadcore processor with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics card that touts 6GB of VRAM. SSD offers super-fast storage, 802.11ac wireless is supported and all models of the new notebook come with 16GB of DDR4 dual-channel RAM.
All models also feature a 3,200 x 1,800 QHD+ display in a package that remains 0.70 inches thin but shaves off a few pounds to come in at 4.25 lbs. This is the second laptop in the company’s laptop after the Blade Stealth Ultrabook to feature individually backlit RGB keys with Razer’s Chroma technology providing millions of color options for the keys.
Razer Blade laptops previously started $2,399 for models with a QHD+ display but now the new notebooks start at $1,999. Pre-orders for the new Razer Blade are live today on RazerStore.com. The company is going to start shipping units next month. Details about retail availability of this product will be provided later this year.
