One of the best gaming laptops ever came from Razer last year with the Razer Blade, a power-packed machine in a surprisingly compact body. Now, Razer is taking that machine to the next level with some welcome upgrades.
The updated Razer Blade brings a 14-inch display, except now with an optional 4K display as opposed to the 3200×1800 option which was the top tier on the older model. It is worth noting, though, that 4K is only an option, and will cost extra.
Along with that, the new model packs Intel’s latest generation of chipsets, the 7th gen Kaby Lake, namely, the Core i7-7700HQ CPU. The newer chipset offers the same power consumption as the former model, but with a tad more power under the hood. That comes paired with a minimum of 16GB of RAM and NVIDIA’s GTX 1060 6GB graphics card, an SSD with up to 1TB of storage, Thunderbolt 3, and Razer’s Chroma keyboard.
The Razer Blade is available now starting at $1,899 for the Full HD model, but an upgrade to 4K will cost a bit extra, and also won’t be available until April. All models currently for sale, though, now ship with Kaby Lake chipsets.
