With the introduction of Intel's latest 8th Generation mobile processors, Razer has re-designed one of the core notebooks in their lineup, the Razer Blade. It comes in at only 0.66" thick. The new Razer Blade will offer up an i7-8750H with a variety of GTX 10XX series mobile GPUs with Max-Q design. The notebook will also offer a near-bezel less 144Hz 1080P display and also comes in a model with a 4K panel 100% Adobe RGB support.

The notebook will pack an 80Wh battery, Thunderbolt 3, and Razer Chroma RGB keyboard. A special vacuum-sealed vapor cooling system allows the notebook to stay cool in such a small package. The base price of the notebook will be $1899.99 and comes in models that cost up to $2899.99. While all models will use the same i7-8750H processor, some models will offer GTX 1060 instead of the GTX 1070.

 

Along with the new notebook, Razer will launch their Core X external graphics enclosures. The new enclosures are compatible with Razer's notebooks (Blade Stealth, Blade, and Blade Pro GTX 1060 version) but also with Mac laptops with Thunderbolt 3.
