Razer Expands Blade Range With Compact Laptop
Gaming manufacturer Razer is adding two new products to its range, a 15.6-inch gaming laptop, the Razer Blade and a external graphics enclosure, the Razer Core X.
The Razer Blade has a FHD display with the option to get 4K resolution. Razer says its new 15.6-inch gaming laptop is the world’s smallest gaming laptop.
The laptop features the new 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H and is available with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics. The new Intel 6 core CPU has Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.1 GHz.
Users have the option of a GeForce GTX 1060 or a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, featuring Max-Q design.
Razer also includes 16 GB of 2667MHz dual-channel system memory and fast PCIe SSD storage with configurations up to 512GB, with support for up to 32GB of memory and up to 2TB of storage.
For cooling, the laptop has vapour chamber technology for the cooling solution instead of the traditional heat pipes found in most gaming laptops.
The chassis is individually CNC milled from a single aluminium block and features a scratch resistant anodised black finish. Its bezels measure 4.9mm with a web camera at the top of the screen.
The Razer Blade will be priced at US$1,899 with Australian pricing to be confirmed.
The Razer Core X is its new external graphics enclosure with Thunderbolt 3 which is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS.
This external graphics enclosure gives laptops desktop like gaming graphics. It is priced at US$299 with Aussie pricing to come.
Both will be available early June.
