Well, first off they are launching the new Razer Blade gaming laptop with a bigger screen, smaller bezels and more graphical power. The Razer Blade line of laptops has seen its fair share of success with its different iterations such as the Razer Blade Stealth and Blade Pro.

However, the Razer Blade line has now seen a major update for years. Especially in the design department as it hasn't seen a major makeover since 2013. That will change with the new Razer Blade.

It now looks sexier and more in-trend with a nearly bezel-less 15.6-inch display. Inside, it houses an 8th Gen Core i7 processor and Nvidia's powerful Max Q architecture that should allow the new Razer Blade to push gaming to new boundaries. There will be options for either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070.

It is a great thing to note that even though the screen size jumped from 14 inches to 15.6 inches the overall size of device is nearly left unchanged. This is because of the small bezels. It just needed a 0.4-inch adjustment in size to accommodate every change they made. There will be 3 versions of the Razer Blade when it comes to the display which are a 60Hz 1080p version, a 144Hz 1080p version and a 4K touchscreen with Adobe RGB support version.

Another great addition is the availability of user replaceable parts. Out of the box, it comes with a 16GB RAM setup with either a 256GB or 512GB M.2 SSD storage but can easily be swapped to 32GB and up to 2TB of storage.

If you want to game on a laptop but wants desktop GPU power then the Razer Core X might just be for you.

They are updating their Core line of external GPU enclosure with the new Razer Core X. The Core X is an entry-level model of Razer's external GPU enclosure which means lower prices. With the price drop comes with the cost of cutting some features from the more expensive Core V2 such as the USB and Ethernet ports as well as the chroma lighting.

The Core X will have a 100W pass-through charging through Thunderbolt, a built-in 650W power supply and support for larger 3-slot GPUs. The Core X will also now support Apple device support for macOS laptops. It will require Apple users to have at least High Sierra version 10.13.4 and they should be using Apple supported AMD Radeon GPUs.

The price of the new Razer Blade starts at USD 1,899.99 for the 1080p 60Hz + GTX 1060 and 256GB SSD version, USD 2,199.99 for the 1080p 144Hz + GTX 1060 and 512GB SSD variant, and USD 2,899.99 for the 4K + GTX 1070 + 512 GB SSD edition.

The Razer Core X will be available for USD 299 which is a significant price drop from the Core V2's USD 499 price.
