After tasting success with the release of a gaming laptop for gaming enthusiasts – the Original Razer blade, recently the company silently announced the successor to its high-end gaming laptop. The new version, simply called the new Razer Blade keeps is supposedly twice powerful as the original one and as a good news, has been given a lower price tag.
The most notable change in the new Razer Blade is its entirely redesigned thermal system. Despite the new thermal system, the new laptop retains its compact. 88" thickness, and is just a fraction of a pound lighter than its 6.9 pound predecessor.
Also the new version will reportedly feature a third generation Intel Core processor along with a Nvidia GTX 660M graphics card. Further, there is no change in the display size with the upgraded version also featuring a screen display size of 17.3 inches.
Memory and Hard Drive
Significant changes have been brought in the memory storage and hard drive features of Razer Blade. The latest version will feature 2GB DDR5 video memory and 1600MHz DDR3 RAM storage capacity.
The 500GB HDD running at 7200 RPM facilitates efficient storage and quick retrieval of data. The laptop also accommodates a 64GB SATA III SSD which uses advanced NVELO Dataplex software.
For preventing the device from getting overheated, it has thermal system in place also to ensure that the laptop runs normally at lower temperature.
Users can also enjoy dynamic gaming experience using the 10 programmable macro keys placed on the right side of the backlit keyboard.
The company’s unique Switchblade UI is designed to provide enhanced multimedia experience. One of the most important attractions of the latest version of the gaming laptop is the bigger LCD color panel it features. Users can choose from two modes.
