Today, Razer has updated its Razer Blade laptop lineup. It announces the new 15-inch Razer Blade with various significant upgrades, including an overhauled exterior design. Along with the improved hardware inside, the new laptop should be able to stand up against other gaming laptops in the market.

Razer claims the new Razer Blade 15 laptop is the smallest 15.6-inch gaming laptop. It has a width of 355 mm, depth of 235 mm and thickness of 16.8 mm. Inside the aluminum chassis, Razer has implemented a vapor chamber cooling solution to cool both the CPU and GPU.

The most noticeable change is the new edge-to-edge display, which gets a size bump from 14-inch to 15.6-inch and small 4.9 mm side bezels. For the base model, the screen has a resolution of 1920×1080, running at 60 Hz refresh rate. You can step up to a 4K (3840×2160, @60 Hz) touch or Full HD (1080p) at 144 Hz display. All models’ display would be calibrated to support 100% of the sRGB or Adobe RGB color space, though no NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology support.

All Razer Blade 15 models will feature Intel’s Core i7-8750H processor with 6 cores and 12 threads, as well as 16 GB of DDR4-2667 RAM (expandable to 32 GB). The CPU will have a base clock of 2.2 GHz and can boost up to 4.1 GHz. For GPU, you can choose between a NVIDIA GTX 1060 Max-Q with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM or a GTX 1070 Max-Q with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM.
