Gaming peripherals from Razer have always been top-notch. However with the launch of its latest gaming laptop, the Razer Blade today, the company has proven how you can pack in the most powerful processors and GPUs into one small, lightweight, 14-inch machine.

The new Razer Blade comes with the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 970M 3GB GDDR5 VRAM GPU and state-of-the-art IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display panel technology. The laptop features 16 GB DDR3L RAM and includes solid-state storage with options for up to 512 GB.

It is powered by a powerful  Intel Core™ i7-4720HQ quad-core processor clocking at 2.67GHz with Turbo Boost speed of up to 3.6GHz. The Hyper-Threading technology provides eight virtual cores for an improved gaming performance.

Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer, said,

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 laptop is now available in U.S., Canada, Singapore and Hong Kong. It will be available in China, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, UAE, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Russia from March. The price of the laptop starts at $2199.
