14-inch Blade Receives Kaby Lake Upgrades


Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

The 14-inch Blade laptop was released in September of last year to much fanfare and at the time boasted an impressive Intel Skylake processor along with a state of the art Nvidia GeForce 10 series graphics card. Razor has decided to upgrade the Blade an upgrade due to Intel having just launched their new high-performance Kaby Lake CPUs at the start of this year. The new Blade upgrade swaps out the Skylake Core i7-6700HQ and supercharges it with the new Kaby Lake Core i7-7700HQ which is for the most part the same size but is clocked up to 300 MHz higher with a base clock of 2.80 Ghz and boost clock of 3.80 Ghz compared to the 2.6/3.5 Ghz of the Skylake Core i7-6700HQ processor. This will provide a minor performance improvement even in CPU-limited workloads. The base model will largely run the same hardware which includes a 1080p IPS display, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, SSD options ranging from 256 GB to 1 TB and 16 GB of RAM. A newer 4k touchscreen display variant will be available for the consumer public in the second quarter of 2017. Although the upgrade Blade is almost $100 more expensive than the previous version it is worth the sticker price due to the performance upgrades and will be available through Razer’s website starting today followed by “select retailers” next week in anticipation of a March launch.
