Razer today revealed its new gaming laptop. The Razer Blade which is the world’s thinnest and lightest 14-inch gaming notebook, is now upgraded with the latest processors from Intel and NVIDIA, more memory and a best-in-class QHD+ display. It now comes with Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (3GB GDDR5 VRAM), IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display panel technology, 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM and SSD up to 512GB.
The Razer Blade’s performance is driven by the engineering principles of localized heating. Dedicated thermal engineers at Razer designed the Blade to direct heat away from the main touch surfaces, sending it to areas that can dissipate heat quickly and are not commonly touched. This allows the Blade to pack in the highest performance possible in a notebook that is thinner than a dime.
Housed in a precision-cut CNC aluminum chassis, the Razer Blade features a custom-designed track pad and backlit gaming-grade keyboard that has anti-ghosting capabilities and programmable keys powered by Razer’s revolutionary Synapse software.
