PC peripheral maker Razer is not the only “aichmophiliac” in the PC industry. Apparently, Taiwanese company Gigabyte is also pretty serious about cutting through the competition, and to this end has announced a new line of “Ultrablade” gaming laptops.

Gigabyte’s new lineup of gaming laptops comprises two models: the 15.6-inch P35K and the 14-inch P34G . Both machines pack full HD displays, as-yet-unknown 4th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processors, and backlit keyboards. Further, they are both 21mm thick and share the same “ultrasmooth sandblasted aluminum matte finish.”

The 4.17-lb P35 Ultrablade has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, D-sub, Ethernet, SD card reader and Thunderbolt (optional). The laptop has what Gigabyte likes to call a “quad-storage system.” It supports up to two 512GB mSATA SSDs and two 1TB HDDs for a total of 3TB space. But wait, that’s not all. You can add another terabyte if you want by swapping out its DVD-ROM for a hard drive.

The 14-inch P34G Ultrablade, which tips the scales at 3.74 lbs, packs an Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M graphics card, 1TB HDD, up to 256GB mSATA SSD, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, D-sub, Ethernet, SD card reader.

There’s no word on pricing or availability yet.
