Gaming company Razer announced the Razer Blade, a new 14-inch ultra-slim device that claims to be the "world's thinnest gaming laptop."
Razer is expanding its high-performance gaming line with a brand new, ultra-slim, high-performance gaming laptop that is ultra-portable. The Razer Blade sports a 14-inch display housed in a stylish aluminum chassis and measures just 0.66 inches in thickness, which makes it one of the thinnest utrabooks out there.
The new gaming laptop weighs in at four pounds and packs a slew of attractive specs and features. The Razer Blade will boast a new fourth-generation Intel Core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphics processor and multiple storage options. The laptop offers a standard 128GB of storage, but includes 256GB or 512GB options.
"We've designed and built the thinnest, most powerful 14-inch laptop in the world," Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director Min-Liang Tan touts in the press release. "Thinner than a dime and more powerful than other traditional desktop replacements today, we've created an entirely new category of thin and powerful laptops that is generations ahead of other PCs."
"Incredible innovation is happening across the computing landscape, and the new mobile gaming experience Razer is delivering with the Edge, and now its Blade, is remarkable," adds Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile Client Platforms. "Powered by a future 4th gen Intel Core processor, people can expect the highest level performance from the Blade for the most discerning gamer."
The Razer Blade ultra-portable gaming laptop packs 8GB of fast 1,600MHz DDR3L memory and provides up to six hours of battery life. The laptop also comes with Dolby Home theater v4, which delivers a "cinematic sound experience." Other features include a KillerTM Wireless-N high-performance wireless networking adapter that provides five-times the wireless networking speed of competitive wireless adapters, according to the company.
"The 14-inch Razer Blade packs a ton of horsepower into a very small chassis," further boasts Rene Haas, vice president and general manager of notebook GPUs at NVIDIA. "The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU delivers blazing performance with incredibly efficient power usage to this ultra-portable gaming machine."
The new Razer Blade gaming laptop will go up for pre-order on June 3 with a starting price of $1,799.
