In March of this year, some netizens broke the news on Twitter: Razer will use Ryzen 5000 series processors. After months of speculation, Razer finally released the Razer Blade 14 with AMD’s flagship processor on June 14.
The Razer Blade series has always been known for its "lightweight". For this newly launched Blade 14, Razer stated that it will be the smallest 14-inch notebook on the market with a size of 319.7mm*220mm*16.8mm.
Considering the heat dissipation efficiency, small-sized gaming laptops are generally equipped with Nvidia RTX 3070 instead of RTX 3080, which generates more heat. Razer stuffed the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor and Nvidia RTX 3080 discrete graphics card into the one-piece aluminum body of the Blade 14.
In recent years, the "AMD camp" notebook computers have done better than the "Intel camp" in terms of performance and battery life. With the release of Blade 14, Razer and AMD have also established a new partnership.
The Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core 16-thread processor on the Blade 14 has a maximum frequency of 4.6GHz, which is excellent in performance. Not only that, it is also excellent in terms of power consumption control. Razer claims that Blade 14 can provide users with up to 12 hours of battery life.
Saeid Moshkelani, Senior Vice President and General Manager of AMD’s Customer Business Unit, said:
As gamers need lighter and more powerful laptops, we have been committed to the goal of providing first-class mobile processors. We are very happy to cooperate with Razer for the first time ever to provide Razer Blade 14 with the best processor we developed for games.
In addition to the processor and graphics card, as the most important output component on a notebook computer, the screen is also the focus of the Blade 14 upgrade. Two high-end versions of Blade 14 provide players with a 2K screen that supports 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and supports a high refresh rate of 165Hz.
In terms of storage, the Razer Blade 14 comes standard with 1TB PCIe SSD, allowing users to upgrade by themselves. Unfortunately, the standard 16GB DDR4-3200MHz dual-channel memory is soldered on the motherboard, and ordinary users cannot upgrade it. Fortunately, 16GB can usually meet the needs of gamers.
In terms of port configuration, Blade 14 provides you with two USB-C, two USB-A, one HDMI 2.1 and one 3.5mm headphone jack (@Apple here).
Like other Razer gaming notebooks, Blade 14 also has an RGB keyboard and a camera that supports Windows Hello. On the whole, the Blade 14 can be regarded as a benchmark in a 14-inch gaming notebook. It not only has powerful performance, but also has considerable portability and practicality. To talk about its shortcomings, let's take a look at the price:
The Razer Blade 14 starts at $1799.99 (RTX 3060 version); the top version with RTX 3080 goes to $2799.99.
