Razer released an updated version of its 14-inch Blade model last September with Intel’s Skylake chips, but now it’s upgrading to Intel’s latest seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors.

Aside from the upgraded chips, the Blade is virtually unchanged from its predecessor, except for a slightly higher price, with the Blade now starting at $1,899 versus the previous model’s $1,799 price tag. The extra hundred dollars gets you a 2.8GHz Core i7 Kaby Lake processor (instead of a 2.6 GHz Skylake i7 chip), along with the same Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 1080p display.

The Kaby Lake-equipped Blade with the 1080p screen configuration will be available on Razer’s website starting today in North America and Europe, while a 4K touchscreen variant will ship sometime in Q2 later this year.
