Razer has unveiled the next generation of its Razer Blade gaming laptop. The new Razer Blade has a better thermal system compared to the original Razer Blade.
The new Razer Blade is a 17.3” (1920x1080) gaming laptop that features a third generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of DDR3-1600 memory, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 M GPU with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, a 500 GB hard disk drive, a 64 GB SATA-600 SSD drive for cache acceleration, a built-in HD webcam, three USB 3.0 ports, wireless network (802.11a/g/n), and Bluetooth 4.0. It is 16.81” (width) x 10.9” (depth) x 0.88” (height), and weighs 6.6 lbs.
The Switchblade User Interface (UI), located next to the Blade’s full-size keyboard, was designed by Razer from the ground up to enhance gaming experiences and provide more control at the gamer’s fingertips. The Switchblade features 10 adaptive tactile keys and a multi-touch LCD panel that can also display in-game information.
The new Razer Blade will be available for pre-order for USD 2,499 on Sept. 2 and will begin shipping to consumers in North America on Sept. 30, 2012.
