The new Razer Blade for 2017 comes packed with one of the better 4K screens we've seen on a laptop. From colour accuracy to brightness and even viewing angle. But can this light, sleek, and well-designed laptop let you game in 4K?

Sort of. Now we didn't expect the GeForce GTX 1060 to handle something like Assassin's Creed Origins at 4K on max settings. Hell, even our gaming rig would struggle with that.

Weighing in a 1.95kg with a height of 17.9mm, the Razer Blade lives up to its namesake as a portable and powerful gaming laptop. But there are some compromises, namely with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 as opposed to the 1070. When it comes to pushing 4K for some of the latest games, the 1060 simply isn’t powerful enough. On the other hand, less visually-intensive titles like Overwatch and even MOBAs run without issue on the Razer Blade – in 4K.

The Razer Blade is built to last, with battery life that benefits from standard desktop activity being handled by the CPU and its Intel HD Graphics 630 chipset. Which, handles all non-gaming 4K content with relative ease. Speaking of 4K, the 14” display on the new Razer Blade leaves pretty much all competition in its wake. Sure, it may not feature G-Sync tech but what you get is truly impressive image quality with a viewing angle that would make most current TV screens blush.
