Measuring just 0.70-inches thin, with a stunning QHD+ display and double the system memory, the Razer Blade packs more power per cubic inch than ever before. Driven by a new quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics, the Razer Blade remains the thinnest, lightest and most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop in the world.
Intel® Core™ i7 Quad-core Processor
The Intel Core i7 4720HQ processor, typically found in larger notebooks, gives the 14-inch Razer Blade 2.6GHz of quad-core processing power and Turbo Boost speeds, which automatically increases the speed of active cores – up to 3.6GHz. Thanks to Hyper-Threading technology, you'll experience eight virtual cores for insane gaming performance.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M
The GeForce GTX 970M with 3GB VRAM is powered by the next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell™ architecture, which delivers blazing-fast performance, advanced graphics technologies, and improved power management. Now you can take on your PC games with faster, smoother gameplay at ultra-settings.
With NVIDIA Optimus™ Technology the Razer Blade automatically transitions between NVIDIA graphics and Intel Integrated Graphics, seamlessly and in the background, to give you great performance and great battery life when you need it.
More Memory. Faster Storage.
The ultra-portable Razer Blade features up to 16 GB of fast 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and includes solid-state storage with options for up to 512 GB. You'll experience speeds of up to 4x faster than traditional notebook hard drives, so you can boot quicker and launch games faster.
Touch Point Thermal Engineering
The Razer Blade's amazing performance is driven by the engineering principles of localized heating. Localized heating focuses on directing heat away from the main touch surfaces of the notebook, areas that can dissipate heat quickly and are not commonly touched by the users. At Razer, we have dedicated thermal engineers who use thermal sensors to test how warm each area of a notebook's exterior gets during various workloads. Our goal is not to get rid of heat altogether, but to keep it away from key touch points that come in contact with users. This allows the Blade to pack in the highest performance possible with NVIDIA GTX graphics in notebook that is thinner than a dime.
More Power to the Pixels Now Available in QHD+ or Full HD
3200 X 1800 QHD+ Display
Razer Blade's spectacular 14-inch QHD+ display pumps out 5.76 million pixels at 262 pixels per inch for breathtaking clarity, hyper-realistic sharpness, and jaw-dropping color intensity. With so many beautiful pixels before your eyes, it becomes impossible to distinguish individual pixels. The "screen door" artifacting of lower-resolution displays disappears, and what remains is the most visually stunning notebook display.
The Razer Blade's state-of-the-art IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display panel technology provides unmatched color and image quality. IGZO has a significantly faster propagation time than traditional a-Si TFT displays, improving video response for smooth motion video and immersive gameplay.
Wide Viewing Angle
The Razer Blade features a wide viewing angle with fast response time for smooth video and blur-free gaming. With amazing 350-nit high brightness from the LED backlight, the Razer Blade display is optimized for gaming wherever you go. The display delivers consistent, accurate color from a variety of vantage points. Colors are much more saturated, accurate, and consistent across the whole screen.
Intuitive Touchscreen Interface
An ultra-responsive 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen works seamlessly with the touch interface in Windows 8, placing updates, apps, work and play at your fingertips. Browsing, sorting through pictures, catching up with the latest news, trends, and social updates, or launching a game is a simple flick away for immediate and ultimate convenience.
Thin and Powerful
Despite being the most powerful Blade ever we kept it incredibly thin at 0.70-inches. Designed for extreme performance on-the-go and gaming anywhere.
Cage the Beast
Harnessing so much power and performance in a compact design demands extreme attention to detail. The Razer Blade is crafted from precision cut CNC aluminum for unmatched design and durability.
Big Power. Slim Design.
Designed for mobile performance, Razer focused on all aspects of the Blade's travel experience, including the power supply. Sleek and lightweight without compromising power, the 150 watt power adapter is ready for gaming
wherever you are.
Gaming Grade Keyboard
The Razer Blade keyboard is designed for hard-core gaming. The backlit anti-ghosting keyboard registers simultaneous key presses with precision. Personalize your layout with the ability to remap the keys and create macros.
Every detail of the new Razer Blade is considered including the software. Optimized for gaming, Razer does not load unnecessary bloatware commonly found on other computers.
Razer strives to enhance the gaming experience even further with its software offering available for download. Whether providing a more immersive game experience, allowing you to game lag-free, finding like-minded gamers or capturing and sharing your best gaming moments, Razer offers a wide range of gaming software to complete your gaming experience.
This review is from: Razer Blade Pro RZ09-01171E11-R3U1 Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit
Pros: Very clear 1920 x 1080 TN screen. All the obvious stuff goes here: It's fast, it's everything you'd come to expect from Razer. It's backed by some of the best phone support I've ever experienced. bonus: It's Nvidia's maxwell architecture, not a rebranded keppler card!
Cons: It's not perfect. For all the extra blank space above and below the keyboard, they couldn't find room for some slightly higher end speakers? They're ok, but I've heard better. I don't mind that this doesn't have an ultra high resolution monitor, but an IPS display that was edge to edge glass would've really transformed this machine's image from "weaker big brother" to "beautiful slightly larger sibling. The TN panel is very good, but the plastic bezel SLIGHTLY detracts from the overall visual appeal [not that you can really see it when the screen is at full brightness. 2MP webcam. For a company known for attention to detail, they completely missed the ball here.
Other Thoughts: First off: At time of posting Newegg is listing this as a touch screen notebook. IT IS NOT. I touched it, and it swore at me for leaving fingerprints. The 860m is no 870m, but it doesn't really need to be. It handles everything *I* throw at it just fine. Diablo 3 maxed out runs in the low 80s for frame rates, Mechwarrior Online runs in the 40-50 FPS range. I've seen videos on youtube of battlefield maxed out running in the upper 40 FPS range. It's capable. Add to that that I can open two excel spreadsheets side by side without squinting, and I'm content with my purchase. Heat wise, when I first got it and was updating everything, I saw it spike up to 93c. Next day, it's not going over 73-75c with D3, MwO pushes it into the low 80s.
Ultimately, it's not an ultra portable gaming machine, but that's not what I needed. I needed something I can take with me on multi week business trips and park in my hotel room. If you require on the go anywhere access and portability, the 14" is probably your machine. If the slightly additional weight and size don't mean much to you, however, this is just as capable a gaming machine [native resolution to native resolution]. The Switchblade UI seems like a throw away at first, but with a little programming it can be an absolutely wonderful shortcut station. In addition, you can download apps such as the monitoring station that let you keep an eye on your processor usage, memory usage, etc, as well as a windows 8 shortcuts button and nice amenities like spotify control and easy access twitch.tv button.
