The Blade 14 is Razer’s first all-new gaming laptop, bringing the company’s signature premium craftsmanship to size and component.
The Razer Blade 14 appears to be identical to every other Razer Blade laptop from the outside. The all-aluminum chassis, RGB keyboard, three-headed snake logo, and subtle black feel are all present. The Razer Blade 14, is a one-of-a-kind product. It’s the first time an AMD processor has made an appearance in a Blade. The Ryzen 9 5900HX processor has been used by Razer to produce the most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop ever.
Razer has been able to add Nvidia’s top-of-the-line RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 mobile graphics cards due to AMD’s efficiency. This is the first laptop with these CPUs in a 14-inch form factor. The Asus Zephyrus G14, which has topped the list of best gaming laptops of all types in the previous year, will be the most powerful on the RTX 3060.
The Blade 14 isn’t cheap our test unit cost $2,199.99 and for that amount, many consumers would be justified in demanding a larger screen. On the other hand, this laptop should be on your list if portability is crucial to you. Nowhere else can you find a greater balance of performance, specifications, and build quality.
- Transportable 14-inch construct
- Highly effective eight-core processor and top-end GPU
- QHD 165Hz show the possibility
- Expensive for its dimension
- Battery life is simply okay
- No Thunderbolt help
Aside from the larger size, the Razer Blade 14 is identical to its 15.6-inch laptop appearance and feel. The build quality is among the best among elite laptops, especially gaming rigs. This design has been a trend-setter among manufacturers of slimmer, more elegant gaming laptops, and it’s good to see it in this size. The all-black paint job, sleek geometric design, tiny screen bezels, and RGB-backlit keyboard are all present, and in some ways even more so in a more compact chassis.
The battery life was adequate but not as impressive as other newer AMD systems. The Blade 14 comes with Razer’s revolutionary “next-gen” vapor chamber cooling, which has dual 88-blade fans with blades as thin as 0.1mm. Unfortunately, the system was unable to keep up with the speed of the chips. During gaming and other high-intensity loads, the 5900HX frequently reached temperatures in the upper 90s (Celsius). At other times during testing, it was regularly in the upper 80s. The good news is that none of that heat made its way to where I could feel it: the bottom of the chassis, the keyboard, and the palm rests were never overheated.
The Razer Blade 14 is the ultimate gaming laptop for you if you’re seeking the greatest power per pound. Of course, fourteen inches isn’t enough screen for everyone, especially at this price range, and many buyers may be prepared to forego the fancy RGB and a few frames per second in exchange for the Zephyrus G14 and G15’s incredible battery life. The Blade has a few flaws, including a bad webcam, fingerprint retention in the chassis, and a high price tag, but if none of these are dealbreakers for you, I see no reason not to recommend it. There’s nothing else on the market quite like it.
