PAX Prime 2012: Photos of the Quad-core Razer Blade Refresh

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 16 comments

The next Blade sharpens up.

"The beauty is now the beast," pitched Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan at a conference unveiling the new Razer Blade gaming laptop refresh. The slogan is to represent the performance increase the Blade will receive in its coming upgrade. The processor cores are doubled, from a dual core to a quad core Intel i7. The graphics are upgraded to an Nvidia GTX 660M in order to power modern games at 1920x1080. 8GB of 1600MHz memory caters to gamers and performance enthusiasts alike. In addition the USB ports (all three) have been upgraded to USB 3.0 and the WiFi card has been upgraded to dual-band 2.4/5GHz capability. Read more about the new Razer Blade here.

    If it has an Ethernet port, its already more capable then a Mac Book Pro.

    Do you guys go on Mercedes website every time they release a new vehicle and just bitch about how it's overpriced and how they could have put more power in it and higher gas mileage if they weren't money hungry idiots?

    Jesus, there is no satisfying some of you...if you don't like a product just keep your damn mouth shut and don't buy it. It's pretty simple!

    Vent aside, this a very sexy notebook that I would love to have accompanying my desktop. The deathadder 3500 has lasted me a couple years and still going strong.

    till the logitech g600, razor had 1 mouse type that was one only they offered, the naga...

    now that there is a competitor, i doubt my next mouse will be a naga, especially if this one breaks in a stupid way like my last one did.

    I do like how the mouse is on the side though... more room for a bigger screen and more internal stuff (video card, dvd, hard drive etc) while still remaining thin... just wider.

    Naga broke quickly for me too. Just went dead and died.

    Now I use a 30 dollar MS "gaming" mouse. I see nothing gaming about it, but it does work and hasn't broke.

    But yeah anyway despite owning a cheap butt mouse, that is a sexy laptop and if I win the lotto then I'll buy it.

    sadly, any ASUS gtx670m laptops can outperform this overpriced Blade, with CHEAPER PRICE!

    The Retina MacBook Pro is thinner then an Ethernet port. All the other MacBook Pro's have Ethernet ports

    I love the concept and the device, but it's still overpriced. Especially when compared to other better spec'ed gaming laptops.

    Wish it had a hex-core and 16gigs of RAM for that price.
