Razers iconic 14-inch gaming laptop is faster and more capable than ever before
ImageSydney, Australia Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced its new Razer Blade gaming laptop. The Blades specs have been improved across the board from its predecessor, and it is now more affordable than ever before.
 
The new Razer Blade houses the latest 6th generation Intel® Core i7 quad-core processor and an NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 970M GPU with 6 GB of VRAM. PCIe SSD technology offers up to three times faster speeds than traditional solid-state drives. Killer Wireless-AC is included. All models will feature 16 GB of DDR4 dual-channel RAM.

All Razer Blade models also come with a stunning 3200x1800 QHD+ display. The laptop remains 0.70 inches thin, but now weighs only 4.25 pounds, making it even more portable than previous generations. The screen and internals are housed in a CNC-milled aircraft grade aluminum chassis.

The Razer Blade
following Razers Blade Stealth Ultrabook will be the second laptop in the world equipped with individually backlit RGB keys. Millions of color options for the anti-ghosted keyboard are available thanks to Razers Chroma technology.
All Razer Chroma products, which include mice, keyboards, headsets and a mouse mat, feature 16.8 million customizable colors and a range of effects such as spectrum cycling, breathing, reactive and more. Lighting effects are enabled through Razers Synapse software that allows synchronizing lighting colors and patterns between Chroma devices with the click of a button.
An SDK is available for developers to integrate Chroma lighting effects in-game. It is already supported by AAA game titles, including Call of Duty®, Dota 2, Overwatch™ and Blade and Soul™.

The Razer Blade gaming laptop will follow the Razer Blade Stealth
s direct-to-consumer pricing model to keep costs down. The new Razer Blade now starts at AUD$2,999.95.

We are getting much more aggressive as far as price point, but that hasnt come at a cost to the performance or design of the Razer Blade,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. Weve improved nearly every aspect of the 14-inch laptop, from CPU and GPU performance to system memory and port selection. Chroma technology unlocks an unprecedented, immersive experience on a gaming laptop.

The new Razer Blade will be compatible with the Razer Core external graphics enclosure in the near future. Utilizing
Thunderbolt™ 3, the Razer Core will connect to the Razer Blade, providing desktop-class graphics and additional connectivity such as USB 3.0 and Ethernet.  Thunderbolt 3 provides remarkable connectivity via the Blades compact USB-C port at speeds of up to 40 Gbps, the fastest, most versatile link to any dock, display or data device.

Welcome to the geforce ANZ forums Razer :) . Love the products that come out of Razer even if they run the risk of burning through my pockets. Wish I had the expendable moolah to obtain this fine piece of hardware. 
Alas, my old alienware m14x I got in 2011 still functions, despite its unintended secondary function of a lap heater working possibly greater than its primary gaming prowess. 
You stay classy RAZER ANZ. ;)

Welcome to the forums RAZER, I'm interested to see what you'll bring to the table, doubly interested in the fact this powerhouse still only runs a GTX970M

You have to remember those PCIe SSDs aren't cheap yet, they're still relatively new and its expected that they will remain more than $1 per GB for a while to come lol

Welcome Razer! Your 2014 Abyssus mouse serves me very well ^^

I have always wanted a Razor Laptop. Such a nice edition for me to be able to do on the go photo and video editing as well as gaming. If they were priced a little better, I think that I would jump on it. I can just never justify spending so much on a portable gaming rig, I always end up investing it into my home PC. xD
