Razer has unveiled their newly upgraded Blade notebook this week, which keeps the same design as the 2015 model, but cuts off some weight and features upgrades to just about every component.
The new blade comes equipped with a 2.6GHz quad-core Intel i7-6700HQ processor (which can be boosted to 3.5Ghz), 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a Nvidia GTX 970M graphics card which has double the VRAM of the 2015 edition, with 6GB.
The notebook also comes with the choice of either 256 or 512 GB of PCIe SSD storage.
It still has the same IGZO display that was featured in the previous edition, with a 3,200 x 1,800 pixel resolution, however, it does have a new keyboard with individual Chrome RBG lighting.
There’s also support for Thunderbolt 3, and Razer has modified the thermal distribution of the notebook to push heat away from the areas that the user touches frequently. Its fans have also be adjusted to run at more regular intervals.
You can pre-order the new Blade now, it is priced at $2,000 for the 256GB version and $2,200 for the 512GB version, and is expected the ship in April.
