The leading global lifestyle brand for gamers has announced its all-new Razer Blade 15.6-inch gaming laptop1 featuring Intel’s latest processor. The new Razer Blade is the world’s smallest gaming laptop in its class, boasting more display area and performance features.
The available 144 Hz refresh rate 15.6″ Full HD (1920 x 1080) display of the new Razer Blade enhances gaming and entertainment viewing with full-frame fluid motion graphics and 100% sRGB colour. Users can also step up to 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution with touch functionality and 100% Adobe™ RGB colour support.
Each laptop display is individually custom calibrated in production for amazing colour accuracy out-of-the-box.
Best-in-class 4.9mm thin bezels flank the display while retaining the ideal web camera placement at the top of the screen.
The world’s smallest 15.6-inch gaming laptop measures as little as 0.66-inches thin and with a minimal footprint for ultimate mobility.
The refined chassis is individually CNC milled from a single aluminium block to provide a sturdy yet compact design and features a scratch-resistant anodized black finish.
Managing heat without sacrificing performance in such a small form factor is no easy task, but Razer innovated by utilizing vapour chamber technology for the cooling solution instead of the traditional heat pipes found in most gaming laptops.
Beyond cooling the CPU and GPU, the vacuum-sealed vaporized liquid helps dissipate the heat generated from other components within the laptop.
Ultra-thin nanoparticle material and graphite-based server grade thermal interfaces reduce hot spots and facilitate heat transfer, while high-performance low-noise fans push air across dual heat exchanges with 0.1mm thin fins, quickly moving heat out of the chassis and away from the user.
The near bezel-less Razer Blade 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 eclipses its predecessor in throughput and responsiveness with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.1 GHz.
To drive fast frame rates users can choose either a GeForce GTX 1060 or GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, featuring Max-Q design for an optimized gaming experience.
For extreme multitasking, 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 32 GB of memory and up to 2 TB of storage.
“We are proud to have again stepped-up as an industry leader, taking laptop engineering to the next level to give gamers the performance they require and the mobility they desire,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “We upgraded to Intel’s latest 6 core processor, used a fast 144Hz display driven by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics, and set a new standard for power in the world’s smallest 15-inch gaming laptop.”
The anti-ghosting keyboard is powered by Razer Chroma and offers 16.8 million colours per key, customizable through Razer Synapse 3 software. New power management options are also available, including modes to boost graphics performance or maximize the run time of the built-in 80Wh battery. The sound is delivered through dual front-firing speakers and features Dolby Atmos for immersive audio.
Connectivity options include the ability to output to up to three external displays via Mini Display Port, HDMI, and Thunderbolt. Connect peripheral devices to the laptop with three USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports. For additional viewing comfort and desk organization, Razer has made available a new Chroma Laptop Stand featuring a light strip up front and 3-port USB hub in back. When taking the new Razer Blade on-the-go, Razer also has released a new 15.6″ Protective Sleeve made of durable, water-resistant material with a slim profile design.
The new six-core Razer Blade 15.6″ Gaming Laptop starts at £1,423 and is available from Razer.com and select retailers in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, France, Germany, and China.
