Razer has announced the new Blade 14, which is the first Blade gaming laptop to use an AMD CPU. AMD&s Cezanne top model, the Ryzen 5900HX processor with Zen-3 technology, is used as the processor, which has 8 cores, a clock of 3.3 GHz, a Max Boost clock of 4.6 GHz and 20 MB cache.
The latest mobile Nvidia GeForce RTX Geforce RTX 3060 with 6 GB VRAM, RTX 3070 or RTX 3080 GPU (both with 8 GB VRAM) can be configured as a correspondingly powerful graphics card. The maximum power of the CPU and GPU are aligned: when one of the two is not under load, the other can draw more power and thus provide more performance, a maximum of 75 watts for the CPU and up to 100 watts for the GPU. From experience, a gaming notebook equipped in this way should also be well equipped for video editing.

The second component that can be selected by the buyer is the display: there is a choice of a FullHD (1,920 x 1,080) screen with 100% coverage of the sRGTB color space and 144 Hz, as well as a Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440) panel with a refresh rate of 165 Hz and 100% DCI-P3 coverage - all models support AMDsFreeSync Premium display.
A 1 TB M.2 SSD (a Samsung PM981) serves as the hard drive, but it can be upgraded by the user - in contrast, the 16 GB dual-channel DDR4-3200MHz RAM is unfortunately soldered and cannot be exchanged or expanded. Common to all models is the 61.6WHr lithium-ion polymer battery which, according to Razor, should last for around 12 hours of operation (but probably not under full load scenarios).
The Blade 14&s interfaces include an HDMI 2.1 port, two USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports, and two USB-C 3.2 Gen2 ports (with Displayport plus Power Delivery). Other features include Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, support for THX Spatial Audio, a 720p webcam with IR sensor for Windows Hello facial recognition, and Razer&s Chroma RGB keyboard.
