blade_1Razer has just unveiled a brand new Razer Blade gaming notebook with updated internals that make it even more powerful.

Having already updated the Blade to match the latest specs in 2014, they’re given the 14-inch ultrathin notebook a revamp yet again to sport not only Intel and NVIDIA’s latest processors but also updated it in terms of RAM and a brand spanking new screen.We have no doubts that games will look fantastic but you can expect to pay a pretty penny for this kind of performance.

As expected, the Blade is as skinny as it gets and sports a similar styling as it’s predecessors, being housed in a precision-cut CNC aluminium chassis, measuring in at 17.8mm at it’s thinnest point.  It’s also has a custom-designed track pad and backlit anti-ghosting keyboard that can be further tweaked using Razer’s Synapse software. Razer says that the Blade is designed to direct heat away from primary touch surfaces (ie: the keyboard) but that remains to be seen because last years variant of the Blade actually did heat up quite a bit when graphics heavy gameplay was involved.

The GPU will be powered by NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture for better power management helped along by NVIDIA Optimus tech, while the Intel Core™ i7-4720HQ processor which is typically found in larger notebooks, essentially makes this gaming notebook cutting edge.

As quoted by Min-Liang Tan, Razer’s co-founder and CEO; “When we debuted the Razer Blade in 2013, we set the benchmark for gaming laptops – and other companies worldwide have followed in our footsteps. We continue to listen as gamer needs evolve and the new Razer Blade again sets the industry standard by which gaming laptops are measured.”

The Razer Blade (2015) will come in a touch and non-touch enabled variant and will be priced from US$2199 (about RM 7882) for the touch version and US$1999 (estimated RM 7165) onwards for the non-touch variant, and is available for purchase from Razer’s online store.
