Thinner than the diameter of a standing dime, new 14-inch Razer Blade packs most power per cubic inch in gaming laptop history
TAIPEI, TAIWAN (Computex) - June 4, 2013 - RazerTM, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, announced that it is taking pre-orders for its new 14-inch Blade gaming laptop.
Powered by a 4th gen Intel® CoreTM i7 quad core processor with Hyper-Threading (Base 2.2 GHz/Turbo 3.2 GHz) and the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 765M GPU, the Blade is the thinnest and lightest 14-inch gaming laptop in history. Measuring in at just 0.66-inches thin, the Razer Blade packs more power-per-cubic-inch than any other laptop in the world. The Razer Blade utilizes solid-state storage technology with boot speeds of up to four-times faster than a traditional 5400-RPM notebook hard drive. The Razer Blade has a rigid all-aluminum chassis, with a stunning 14-inch LED-backlit HD+ display and features a custom-designed track pad and backlit gaming grade keyboard.
"The Razer Blade is the thinnest and most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop ever, thinner than a standing dime, and we couldn't have created it without the help of partners like Intel," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "Now that the Blade is open for pre-orders, we can all celebrate a monumental day for PC gamers worldwide."
The ultra-portable laptop features 8 GB of fast 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and comes standard with 128 GB of total solid-state storage with options for a 256 GB or 512 GB SSD. The Razer Blade also comes with Dolby® Home Theatre® v4, featuring immersive audio-quality output that is custom-tuned to deliver a cinematic sound experience.
"Incredible innovation is happening across the computing landscape, and the new mobile gaming experience Razer is delivering with the Edge, and now its Blade, is remarkable," says Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile Client Platforms. "Powered by a future 4th gen Intel Core processor, people can expect the highest level performance from the Blade for the most discerning gamer."
