The new AMD technology Razer Blade 14 it is probably one of the worst kept secrets of the year. Hell, Min Lian-Tan i Frank Azor for years it has been provoking fans on Twitter knowingly, long after knowing it would come. But it has finally been revealed on Razer's E3 program, and some would say it's time.
But it's not just a standard Blade laptop with a new AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU, but Razer has designed a new class of Blade machines. This is the first 14-inch laptop to be manufactured since Windows 8.1 was one thing and more powerful than anything else in the same park.
There’s a chance that separating AMD in its own small 14-inch niche would be a good way to keep Intel and Nvidia sweet when it comes to its other range of laptops, but it’s likely to become a 14-inch AMD machine now. because Razerâ & # x20AC; & # x2122; s been eagerly looking at Asus ’stunning ROG G14 machine.
This laptop served as one of the Ryzen laptops of the first new wave. In fact, in its marketing for the Razer Blade 14 it is clear that it shapes Asus when it comes to materials and the GPU's maximum choice of the competition.
With “a lot of bending” on the rival machine and an RTX 3060 as a superior GPU, it’s clear where Razer sees its advantage. The new Blade 14 uses very thin CN aluminum to make your chassis as rigid as you want and offers SKUs with a TGP RTX 3080 of up to 100 W inside.
Considering the Razer Blade 15 Advanced, which I’m writing here only carries a 95 W RTX 3080, which is really impressive with such a slim design.
But the chassis and graphics card are actually the least exciting things you can talk about when it comes to the Razer Blade 14. It’s the fact that it’s using AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HX processor at its core that it’s the big one. news. Unfortunately, AMD's naming conventions differ from desktop to mobile, so the Ryzen 9 5900HX is a completely different specification from the Ryzen 9 5900X. It's a 16-core eight-core chip, while the desktop provides a 24-wire 12-core processor.
But the 5900HX mobile is still a powerful Ryzen, with a base of 3.3 GHz and a clock speed of 4.6 GHz. It is a processor as powerful as the one you will find in a gaming laptop and, above all, in one that you can only include in a messaging bag.
Razer is also talking about up to 12 hours of battery life, but if you’re molding this 100W RTX 3080 to the 61.6WHr battery, I guess you’ll be looking at a lot less than that. Especially if you change the QHD panel option, 1440p, 165Hz, similar to IPS.
There’s also an HDMI 2.1 port in case you want to export it to a 4K monitor or 120Hz TV, which you might not expect from a 14-inch laptop. There are actually quite a few ports on this slim machine, just like on the more rugged Blade 15 laptops.
The new Blade 14 is now on sale, with three models and prices starting at $ 1,799 for the 144Hz 1080p option with an RTX 3060. There are also RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 machines with this 1440p 165Hz display option for $ 2,199 and $ 2,799 respectively. They all come with the same Ryzen 9 5900HX chip, 16 GB of 3,200 MHz RAM and 1 TB PCIe SSD, and they would all be a stellar gaming laptop.
