Razer has announced the brand new Razer Blade 14 during their E3 keynote, the first Razer Blade ever to feature an AMD processor, the 8-core AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX, offering the fastest gaming performance in its class.
The new Razer Blade 14 will also feature up to the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Laptop GPU, and up to a Quad HD 165Hz display, all packaged into the world’s most compact 14-inch gaming chassis. Rounding out the 14-inch powerhouse are the signature Razer trappings that have established Razer Blade laptops as one of a kind, including per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting, immersive THX® Spatial Audio for dynamic sound, and an abundant offering of ports to make everyday life easier.
The AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX 8-core, 16-thread processor features a max boost clock of up to 4.6GHz, enabling it to quickly dispatch dense workloads, reduce latency when gaming, and chew through demanding workloads at breakneck speeds with up to 12 hours of battery life. It features the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs, up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. Built with NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture, the RTX™ 30 Series offers improved ray tracing and advanced AI features to create more visually immersive worlds. In addition to the improved graphical performance, the GeForce RTX 30 Series features a suite of Max-Q technologies such as Dynamic Boost, Whisper Mode 2.0 and a resizable BAR,
Ranging from Full HD 144Hz up to Quad HD 165Hz, both IPS-grade panels offer excellent color coverage, reaching up to 100% SRGB on the Full HD panel and up to 100% DCI-P3 on the Quad HD panel. The high refresh rate of both panels is paired with the integrated AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology. Blade 14 features an all-aluminum chassis, precision milled to reduce any excess waste in the frame and anodized with a matte black coating. The chassis dimensions have been trimmed down to a mere 0.66” x 8.66” x 12.59” – making it the world’s smallest 14-inch gaming laptop.
To achieve this technical feat, the Blade 14 utilizes Razer’s unique vapor chamber cooling solution instead of the bulky and inefficient heat pipe systems that other gaming laptops rely on. The vacuum-sealed chamber within the Blade 14 uses vaporized liquid to dissipate heat away from integral components, while working in tandem with two ultra-low-profile fans, each of which features 88 fan blades at a mere .1 mm thin, equivalent to the thinness of a human hair.
Lining the top bezel of the display is a sharp 720p webcam with an IR sensor for a safe and seamless login via Windows Hello. The punchy keyboard is accented with per-key Razer Chroma RGB that can be customized to match any of the 16.8 million colors available within Razer Synapse. Speakers can be tuned via built-in THX Spatial Audio technology for gaming, movies, or music. Lining the sides of the Blade 14 is a plethora of ports including two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with power delivery for charging when in a bind, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports for connecting legacy items, HDMI 2.1 for easily hooking into board room media sets, and a 3.5mm jack for listening to immersive 3D audio with THX Spatial Audio.
Alongside the Razer Blade 14, Razer also announced their first Gallium Nitride (GaN) charging device, the Razer USB-C GaN charger. Utilizing cutting-edge GaN technology, the new charger is perfect for gamers, prosumers, or those on-the-go. Offering up to 130W of combined charging power between the two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports, it enables customers to charge their smartphone, tablet, or laptop, while being small enough to easily fit in a pocket.
The GaN technology featured in the new charger is not only more efficient in terms of size and power delivery compared to a traditional silicon-based charging brick, but also in thermal performance, meaning a reduced risk of over-heating or short circuiting of connected devices. The Razer USB-C GaN Charger ensures gamers and prosumers can always stay connected and powered up on the go.
