Many gamer's hopes have finally come to pass after months of rumours and conjecture. The new Razer Blade 14 is today introduced from Razer, powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX flagship. This is the first AMD CPU for Razer Blade and currently available on Razer's website for purchase at $1,799.99.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU with a QHD 165Hz display will also have a 14-inch gaming platform and an FHD 144Hz alternative.
Razer believes that the Blade will be the most minor 14" laptop on the market with 12.59 x 8.66 x 0.66 inches dimensions. There is also a 720p webcam (which is currently not available on notebooks).
The rest of the computer looks like a relatively standard Razer blade with the RGB keyboard signature and the triple-headed snake emblem on the deck.
"We are committed to offering the greatest in-standing mobile CPUs for premium OEM designs because gamers need lighter and more powerful form factors in gaming laptops," says Saeid Moshkelani, SVP, and GM of AMD customer units. "The Razer Blade 14 with the best mobile processors we've produced for gaming is a first-ever opportunity for us to work with Razer."
Razer's Intel systems always rate among our selections for the most OK laptop that you can purchase for gaming. Its Blade 15 Advanced has exceptional framing rates and still has the same size as many 15-inch machines. Its Blade Stealth 13 is one of the only 13-inch gaming laptops capable of running AAA titles at a native resolution, while Blade Pro 17 provides some of the highest performance on a game laptop.
However, laptops with AMD CPUs have done better in performance and battery life than those with Intel CPUs over recent years. Our top two gaming laptop picks are AMD-powered and are our best choice in terms of pricing. Asus' Zephyrus G14 is powered by AMD and provides some of the finest battery performance and longevity we have ever seen from a 14-inch laptop.
It's wonderful to see Razer combine its top quality with these superior processors, and once we have our hands on the item, we're seeing how well it's up to Asus' offers.
