Razer always has a big booth at whatever convention it is at, whether it be PAX, E3, or CES. In this case, they showed off their upgrade of the Razer Blade. If you aren’t familiar with the Razer Blade, it is “the first gaming laptop” and it was unveiled one year ago.
This new version should be out on September 30th, and here are the changes that were made. It has specially designed heat pipes for additional airflow, and yet it is at 0.88 inches. Not bad. I was told from one of the representatives at Razer’s booth at PAX that it is twice as fast as before.
That is a big boast. Here are the other specs: it has a 17.3 inch screen, a 3rd Generation Intel Core Processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M with NVIDIA Optimus Technology, 2GB GDDR5 Video Memory, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Memory, a 60Wh Battery, 500GB 7200RPM HDD, and 64GB SATA III SSD with NVELO Dataplex Software.
I already mentioned the release date at the end of this month, and all that remains is the price, about $2499.
