Razer has just announced its latest Razer Blade gaming laptop. You should have no problem slaying monsters in The Witcher 3 with this sucker.
The Razer Blade’s graphics are powered by a Nvidia GTX 970M with 3GB of memory. The previous model of the Blade used a GTX 870M.
Razer ups the processor to a quad-core Intel Core i7-4720HQ at 2.6 GHz (turbo boost will get you up to 3.6 GHz).
The latest Razer Blade keeps the resolution the same at 3,200 x 1,800. But, it does use a new panel technology called IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide). One advantage of this new display is it reduces power consumption no matter the brightness settings.
16GB of RAM is in the the Razer Blade. You can customize storage space from 128GB to 512GB, with each option is for solid state drives.
The Razer Blade comes in two main configurations. One with QHD + Touch (starts at $2,199), the other at Full HD with no-touch screen (starts at $1,999. The non-touchscreen version uses an IPS panel at 1920 x 1080 resolution and comes with 8GB of RAM.
Other features of the Razer Blade include three USB 3.0 ports, a built in 2.0mp webcam, and Bluetooth. It weighs about four and a half pounds and is a seventh of an inch thick.
Razer will start shipping the latest iteration of the Blade today. Select Microsoft retail stores will receive the Razer Blade on February 16th.
