After its North American debut, the Razer Blade gaming notebook has finally found its way to Asia, with Singapore as its first destination of choice. For those who don’t recall, the device was initially unveiled at the PAX Prime and then started shipping in the US early this year.
In terms of technical specifications, the notebook is fitted out with an Intel Core i7 processor that offers a base clock rate of 2.8GHz and speeds along at 3.5GHz in Turbo mode. The internals also feature an Intel HM65 Express Chipset and 8GB dual channel DDR3 memory at 1,333MHz.
Potential users can look forward to 17.3 inches of display space in the 16:9 widescreen ratio and 1,920 x 1,080p visuals with LED backlighting. The image rendering is powered by Nvidia GeForce GT 555M 2GB DDR5 VRAM leaning on Nvidia Optimus technology as well as integrated Intel GMA HD graphics.
Razer has infused the gadget with the 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium OS and the SwitchBlade UI. The Synapse 2.0 enabled rig also features in-built speakers, a 2MP webcam, the Razer Anti-Ghosting keyboard, Ethernet connectivity, Intel Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, USB 3.0 and 2.0, Bluetooth 3.0 and more.
If 6.4kg seems to be as portable as a gaming system of this sort can get, then lugging it around shouldn’t be a bother to users. Also, gamers should be able to slip it into any carrying case that will accommodate a 16.8” x 10.9” x 0.8” notebook.
The Razer Blade gaming laptop price for Singapore is S$3,999.99. It is available in the US at $2,799.
