Although CES 2022 has been reduced, Razer has continued to move forward, launching an updated series of Blade notebooks. Razer Blade 14, Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade 17 are similar in appearance to their predecessors, but now offer additional options, including Intel’s 12th generation CPU, AMD Ryzen 6000 series CPU, DDR5 memory and the new RTX 30 Series GPU.
The Razer Blade 14 is one of our favorite gaming laptops, and may even be a contender for one of the best gaming laptops of all time. The already impressive 5900HX is upgraded to a 6900HX with DDR5 memory, which can be equipped with your choice of RTX 3060, RTX 3070 Ti or the new RTX 3080 Ti. It is crazy that such a powerful GPU can be installed in a thin and light laptop on the surface.
There are multiple screen options, one of which is a 1080p 144Hz option, and the other is a 2560×1440 165Hz display with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and a 4.7mm frame. Prices for the 6900HX and RTX 3070 Ti models start at US$2,599, while models with the 3080 Ti start at US$3,499. I want one. now.
Blade 15 is equipped with the highest Core i9 12900H 14-core processor and the highest 3080 Ti, 32GB DDR5 memory, and your choice of 360Hz 1080p, 240Hz QHD or a 144Hz 4K OLED screen that is totally worth it.
I just hope the cooling meets the standard. There must be some concern that all of this hardware may cause some fan noise, although Razer has promised to include additional ventilation in the modified case of its new laptop. Once we get it, we will have to wait and see. The base model with 12800H processor and RTX 3060 GPU starts at $2,499, while the 12900H and RTX 3080 Ti models start at $3,999.
Blade 17 is similar to Blade 15 in appearance, but there is no 4K OLED option, only IPS. Prices for the 12800H and RTX 3060 models start at US$2,699, and the 12900H with RTX 3080 Ti and 4K screen options starts at US$4,299.
The new model comes pre-installed with Windows 11 and will initially be available exclusively in the Razer store starting on January 23. Blade 14 will be available on February 9th in a few weeks.And, if you really want to join early, you can register your interest at the following URL Razer’s website.
Given the popularity of Razer’s Blade laptops, we believe that many people will accept it, although the inventory of gaming laptops has been one of the most stable during the entire chip shortage.
