Posted on March 27, 2012, Ben Richardson Rahul Sood Is All In on the Razer Blade
Rahul Sood is a legend in game hardware circles. He’s credited with the being the first person to bring liquid-cooled PC’s to market. After founding VoodooPC in 1991, Sood successfully navigated the switch when the company was acquired by Hewlett-Packard in 2006. In addition to his current duties as GM for System Experience in the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsfot, he is a prolific blogger, writing about business practices, PC hardware, and the occasional neat toy.
Sood praises the “amazing crafstmanship, the quality of materials, unique ID, [and] beautiful packaging.” The packaging, he claims, is “so hot you want to display the box on a shelf.” The man’s simply not afraid to gush: “Oh my goodness, did I mention the power adapter? It’s super thin, super light, hardly noticable.”
The Blade doesn’t disappoint when it comes to processing power, either: “It can play Crysis and every other game you can throw at it,” according to Sood. Such high praise will come as good news to anxious gamers waiting to get their hands on a Blade.
