Razer on Monday introduced an upgrade fans have been waiting for. Starting this month, the company will begin rolling out a new Razer Blade (14-inch) with faster memory, a new 4K UHD option, and the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor.
The whole intent is to make Razer’s already powerful laptop even better. The company upgraded the same machine last year, which included a Full HD matte display option, but it still came with a sixth generation Intel Core i7.
Consumers who want the latest and greatest from Razer can pick up the new Blade beginning February 13 from the company’s website, with further availability at select retailers on February 20. The updated Blade will be available to consumers around the world beginning in March.

The Razer Blade comes standard with 16GB of RAM, a 14-inch Full HD display, an “anti-ghosting” keyboard with Razer Chroma, and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060. Paired with Intel’s Kaby Lake, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan says the Blade sets the benchmark for performance.
The starting price for the new model is $1,899.
