Razer today announced some updates for its Blade gaming laptop. The company is upgrading the CPU inside the device, to offer a better performance. The company is also launching a new 4K variant of the device, which will make some games look much better.

Razer’s latest Blade device now comes with Intel’s 7th gen Kaby Lake processors, which means you will be able to get slightly improved performance on the device. Of course, Intel’s 7th gen processors aren’t a significant upgrade from the 6th gen processors, but the improvements can be noticeable in some cases — especially when you’re gaming.

The Razer Blade is also getting a new 4K display option later this year. The new 4K UHD touchscreen option will be available for the Blade’s 14-inch variant, which means you will get the best picture quality while you are gaming. Razer will still continue to offer the Full HD display, but if you are willing to spend a bit more, you’ll probably want to get the 4K UHD display which is shipping from Q2.

Razer’s Blade device comes with some other powerful features, including 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM running at 2400MHz, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage, and Killer Wireless-AC. The company has also released a video showcasing some of the new features of the improved Blade:

The new Razer Blade with the Full HD display is available right now from Razer’s official store, starting at $1,899. The device will also be available in select retail stores starting February 20th. The 4K variant will be available from Q2, pricing details regarding the 4K variant is yet to be available.
