If the Razer Blade wasn’t already packed to the brim with power, the gaming laptop just got even more powerful.

The company have introduced the latest Kaby Lake processor and with it a new 4k 14-inch panel for the Razer Blade laptop.

The new 7th Gen Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor gives the 14-inch Razer Blade 2.8GHz of quad-core processing power and Turbo Boost speeds, which automatically increases the speed of active cores – up to 3.8GHz. Work, play and create with ease and enjoy smooth, high definition 4K content like never before. With the Razer Blade’s thin and light design, you’d never guess it holds all that power.

As far as changes go, the Razer stops at the upgraded processor and increased resolution, but what more would you want? You’ll still get the same 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 graphics and 1TB of SSD storage. The design remains the same in the black chassis that fits a gaming setup.

The New Razer Blade is armed with the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, powered by the ultra-fast, power-efficient NVIDIA Pascal™ GPU architecture. The advanced GeForce GTX 1060 GPU is created with high-speed FinFET technology and supports DirectX 12 features.

The Blade starts at $1,889 and goes all the way up to $2,799 when equipped with 4K and 1TB of storage.

With the bundled GPU, you’ll have all you need to get started with virtual reality in a setup that you can take on the move with you.

If portable VR is something that you’re after then the Blade is a perfect companion. You can pick it up from the Razer website, just be sure to get that credit card at the ready.
