Razer – Blade Gets Faster Processor, Better GPU

Razer is now going to give their line of gaming laptops a bit of a boost in performance and battery life. Back when the Blade Stealth was released just earlier this year, the ultrabook had really good looks, which is enough for any videogame-centric individual that wants a powerful, portable machine to immediately pull out their wallets to pay for the machine. However, one flaw of that unit was its slightly below average battery life. However, this update will make good progress on that regard, as well as inside the performance department. The company known for making high-end gaming merchandises is now going to give their ultrabook new Kaby Lake processors, among other upgrades.

The Razer Blade Stealth Gets Kaby Lake Processors

All things considered, the Kaby Lake processors that will be installed in the Razer Blade Stealth ultrabook is just a small update over the Skylake architecture. However, another update to take note of is that the 2-in-1 device gets a new Intel i7-7500U chip that is clocked in at 2.7GHz (3.5GHz on turbo). With this new processing power, it will definitely give the unit better performance, as well as better power efficiency as compared to the processor, which is the Intel i6-6500U, found in the older machine.

Aside from the new processing power, it also comes with a bigger battery life. The old 45Whr battery pack that the old system had is now replaced with a more powerful 53.6Whr one. Even without the machine going into power saving mode, this beefier battery translates to an increased battery life of approximately 20-percent.

With these new features, it makes gamers even wanting the Razer Blade Stealth an even must-have than ever before. According to reports, prices will start at $999 for a system with a 2560 x 1440 resolution display and a 128GB SSD. Shipping is expected to begin on the 14th of September of this year. Pre-orders are already available at the time of writing.

Razer’s ultrabook biggest party trick is that of it being able to connect to the Razer Core. The Core is a peripheral that attaches to the machine with the use of a Thunderbolt 3 cable. Its primary purpose is to beef up the graphics performance of the system as it carries a full-sized desktop GPU. Apart from the aforementioned updates, the company is now adding the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and the AMD Raden RX 480 into the mix of supported graphics processing units.
