Updated on 10 March 2017: The new Razer Blade is now available to buy in Singapore.

Originally published on 14 February 2017:

Razer has updated its 14-inch Blade gaming notebook with the latest 7th-generation Intel processors and a 4K display option. These upgrades bring the Razer Blade in line with the competition, which has largely already moved to Kaby Lake, and the 4K screen appears designed to take advantage of Kaby Lake’s dedicated support for 4K HEVC encoding and decoding.

Last September, Razer equipped the Blade with NVIDIA’s new Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, bringing VR-ready performance to the svelte 14-inch machine.

Today’s refresh adds an Intel Core i7-7700HQ (2.80GHz, 6MB L3 cache) processor, 16GB of faster DDR4-2400 memory (compared to DDR4-2133 before), and up to a 1TB PCIe M.2 SSD. There are options for either a 1,920 x 1,080-pixel matte display or a 3,840 x 2,160-pixel UHD panel with support for capacitive multi-touch, but the latter isn't available to buy locally.

Other features include three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a dedicated USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port, Killer Wireless-AC 1535 Wi-Fi, and of course per-key Chroma lighting.

The notebook measures just 17.9mm thick and weighs up to 1.95kg for the UHD version. Razer has managed to cram a decent-sized 70Wh battery on board as well.

The notebook is already available to buy on Razer’s online store starting at S$2,899.90 for the 256GB FHD model.
