Razer’s latest gaming laptop features a 14 inch, 3200 x 1800 pixel display, an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor, solid state storage, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics with 3GB of dedicated memory.

The new Razer Blade is also pretty compact for a high-performance laptop, measuring about 0.7 inches thick and weighing just under 4.5 pounds.

It’s now available for $2000 and up.

Razer’s new laptop looks a lot like the model the company launched a year ago. But the 2015 Razer Blade has more powerful graphics and a faster version of Intel’s Haswell processor. It also supports up to 16GB of RAM, which is twice as much maximum memory as the 2014 model.

If you’re wondering why the laptop doesn’t have a 5th-gen Intel Core “Broadwell” chip, it’s probably because high-performance Broadwell processors won’t be available for a few more months. The chips Intel launched in January are aimed at relatively low-power computers.

The new Razer Blade notebook features an IGZO touchscreen display, 128GB to 512GB of solid state storage, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output with support for 7.1 channel audio, stereo speakers, array microphones, and a 70 Wh battery.

There’s also a model with a 1080p non-touch display that sells for a little less than the higher-resolution, touchscreen model.
