When you go out and search to buy a notebook PC, be prepared to realize that only a few have the graphics and processing power to play your favorite PC games. Most notebooks are for business and general use. Shooters and other popular high-level games need extra power.
Razer is introducing a thin PC notebook for gaming. It is aptly called the Blade. It is thin and light and ready to support your gamer instincts when you’re away from home base.
The Razer Blade is powered by a 4th gen Intel Core i7 quad core processor with Hyper-Threading (Base 2.2 GHz/Turbo 3.2 GHz) and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphic processor unit.
At this writing, 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. That’s quite a feat for a manufacturer known for developing powerful game controllers and headsets. The Razer Blade will be a significant step as it leaps into a ring of notebooks from many manufacturers.
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 14-inch Razer Blade features 8GB of fast 1600MHz DDR3L memory combined with faster solid state performance capable of holding up to 512GB of storage. You’ll experience speeds of up to 4x faster than a traditional notebook hard drives, so you can boot quicker and launch games faster.
When it comes to higher performance gaming on-the-go, the powerbase is in the GPU or graphic processor unit. Experience more detail, higher resolutions, and the most realistic special effects with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M. Based on our award-winning NVIDIA Kepler architecture, GeForce GTX 765M delivers up to 75% more gaming performance than last generation’s GeForce GTX 660M. Thanks to the power-efficient GeForce GTX 765M, you can now enjoy ultra-quality gaming in the thinnest, most portable GeForce GTX notebooks ever created.
Razer is banking that, based on its reputation of advanced gaming hardware, it can contend against possible thin notebooks that might follow from manufacturers like Sony, Asus and more. The NVIDIA GTX 765M is what makes it possible and you can expect that, in a flat PC market, PC manufacturers just can’t wait to release a notebook as a PC game console.
The Razer Blade has a sharp edge over competition as it is the first to release an Ultrabook sized PC first. That will make a mark on impressionable gamers who need to game anywhere.
Using Windows 8 64-Bit operating system, this is a true notebook when you’re not gaming. Razer is not sharing exactly how much real performance time you can expect from the included rechargeable battery when you’re doing the games.
Slightly larger and heavier than a tablet, the Razer Blade offers game performance that tablets can’t approach at all. The Razer Blade may face stiff competition up ahead but, for now, it’s a mobile invitation for appreciative gamers.
