Razer announces updated Blade and Blade Stealth

Razer announced updated versions of its Blade Stealth Ultrabook and Blade gaming notebook at PAX this year.

The Blade Stealth sees numerous improvements over the previous version that came out earlier this year. One of the changes is the switch to Intel’s 7th generation Core-i7-7500U with Intel HD Graphics 620. It still comes in the same QHD (2560 x 1440) or 4K (3840 x 2160) display options, with the QHD model getting 128/256/512 SSD storage options and the 4K model getting 512GB/1TB SSD options. All but the very base 128GB model get 16GB RAM, with the base model staying at 8GB. Razer has also updated the battery on the Blade Stealth, with the newer model running a 53.6Wh battery. The rest of the specifications are identical to the previous model.

As for the larger Blade, it now comes with NVIDIA’s latest 1060 GPU replacing the 970M on the previous model. The Blade is available in two display options, a 14-inch 1080p matte display and a 14-inch 3200 x 1800 QHD+ display. The storage options include 128GB/512GB/1TB options with 16GB RAM across the board. The Blade still rocks the 6th generation Intel Core-i7-6700HQ and a 70Wh battery.

Prices for the Blade Stealth start at $999 and the Blade starts at $1799.
