Computer gaming hardware maker Razer has unveiled what it calls the "world's thinnest gaming notebook".

Known as the Razer Blade, it measures in at just 0.66-inches in thickness.  It's powered with a 4th-generation Intel Coreprocessor, the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU, and utilizes solid-state storage technology with boot speeds of up to four-times faster than a traditional 5400-RPM notebook hard drive.  Furthermore, the gaming laptop has a rigid all-aluminum chassis, a 14-inch LED-backlit HD+ display, and uses a custom-designed trackpad and backlit gaming grade keyboard. 

"Weve designed and built the thinnest, most powerful 14-inch laptop in the world," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director.  "Thinner than a dime and more powerful than other traditional desktop replacements today, we´ve created an entirely new category of thin and powerful laptops that is generations ahead of other PCs." 

The ultra-portable laptop comes packed with 8 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and is standard with 128 GB of total solid-state storage.  Optionally, it can also come with either a 256 GB or 512 GB SSD.  The Razer Blade also features Dolby Home Theatre v4.

Razer says the computer's battery offers up to six hours of battery life.

"The 14-inch Razer Blade packs a ton of horsepower into a very small chassis," says Rene Haas, vice president and general manager of notebook GPUs at NVIDIA.  "The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU delivers blazing performance with incredibly efficient power usage to this ultra-portable gaming machine." 

The Razer Blade will be available for pre-order June 3.
