Until recently, it only used a 45-watt Core i7 processor in its laptops.
Razer is now introducing the first AMD-powered laptop, the new Razer Blade 14.
The AMD processor that Razer has chosen to use in the Blade 14 is the Ryzen 9 5900HX. It is an octa-core processor with a boosted speed of 4.6GHz.
The company promises that the computer is powerful enough and still has a battery life of up to 12 hours.
Considering it’s a 14-inch laptop, Razer has done it right here. The company indicated that most computers of this scale only offer up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics processor. But the new Blade 14 offers the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.
You also get it with a QHD display with a refresh rate of 165Hz, something that has been frequently seen in the latest generation of 15.6-inch gaming laptops.
When we introduced the Blade 14 in 2013, Razer challenged the industry by thinking bigger with smaller sizes.
“The new Blade 14 aims to revolutionize the industry once again by combining Razer’s decade of experience making ultra-compact, high-quality gaming consoles with the power and efficiency of AMD Ryzen processors.” We are pleased to offer gamers the best mobile gaming experience with the Razer Blade 14.
Razer announces Blade 14:
The Razer Blade 14 is two-thirds an inch thick, making it the thinnest 14-inch gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics.
The AMD Ryzen-powered Razer Blade 14 starts at $1,800, and is available today.
Razer also announced a USB-C GaN charger that can charge up to four devices simultaneously with a total output of 130W.
There are two USB Type-C ports and two USB Type-A ports, and you can get 100 watts through the former and 18 watts through the latter.
The big focus here is on size, as the company compared it to an MSI charger of the same size and found it to be 56 percent smaller. It is 48 percent smaller than the Anker Atom PD4.
The USB-C GaN charger is now available for $180.
The company also announced the Razer Raptor 27, which is the first monitor in the world to receive THX certification. It features QHD resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time, so it’s clearly designed for gaming.
With THX certification, Razer is focused on color. And gaming monitors have historically tended to achieve a high refresh rate and sacrifice everything else.
Razer promises a 95 percent wide DCI-P3 color gamut and HDR400 support in the Raptor 27. Available in the third quarter for $800.
