The E3 event is still going on and various news of new titles are published; But E3 is not just about gaming, and companies in the field are also introducing gaming hardware. One of these companies is called Razer, which last night introduced some of its latest hardware achievements in the field of gaming.
Among Razer’s new products, we can mention Blade 14, which is the first Razer 14-inch gaming laptop. Razer has also unveiled a monitor with high-end hardware specifications, which we will cover in a separate article. What makes Blade 14 attractive is its AMD 5900HX Raizen 9 processor, which gives the device considerable processing power; But AMD’s powerful processor isn’t the only Blade 14 feature, and GPU enthusiasts can take advantage of Nvidia’s latest RTX 30 series products.
Razer basically used an Intel processor in its laptops, especially gaming models; But in the end, it turned to AMD for the Blade 14 and chose one of the most powerful CPU models right now to power the Blade 14. According to reports WindowsCentralWhen buying a new Razer laptop, users can opt for a screen with FHD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and a refresh rate of 144 Hz, or the more expensive option with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and a refresh rate of 165 Hz. Of course, neither option is touch-sensitive.
The first model with FHD resolution is able to cover 100% of the standard DCI-P3 spectrum; But the second model with QHD resolution can cover the sRGB color spectrum 100%. Both models support AMD freesink capability. What shines about the new Razer laptop is the use of AMD’s Raizen 9 5900HX CPU; 8-core processors with the ability to provide up to 16 crunches when running new games or heavy work, which actually provides significant processing power to the user. CPU frequency is set to 3.3 GHz in normal consumption mode and can reach a maximum of 4.6 GHz in boost mode.
Users can choose one of three Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3060 or GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs when purchasing Blade 14; But choosing the desired model can reduce or increase the final price of the laptop. All three GPU models will have 16GB of dedicated 3.2GHz DDR4 RAM. Buyers of the new Acer laptop have access to 1 terabyte of PCIe SSD storage for data storage or software and game installation.
The blade has 14 all-aluminum bodies and is up to 16.8 mm thick. Thin thickness is not an advantage for gaming laptops, and in fact worries most users about problems such as the laptop not being able to control the heat generated during heavy tasks; But if it’s important to the user, the Razer Blade 14 is one of the slimmest gaming laptops currently available.
For video chat, Peach Windows HD HD camera is provided to users, but it can also be used to recognize the user’s face and increase the security factor. The resolution of the mentioned camera reaches 720p. The Blade 14 also supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 communications and has two second-generation USB-A 3.2 ports and two second-generation USB-C 3.2 ports for charging laptops as well as being used as a 1.4 display port. They are embedded. The HDMI 2.1 port is also built into the edges of the laptop to allow it to be connected to another monitor.
The blade has 14 batteries with a capacity of 61.6 watts; However, it is not clear exactly how long the battery life will last in different conditions of use. Users will have three options to buy Blade 14, which are as follows.
- $ 1799 for GeForce RTX 3060 model with 1080p display and 144Hz refresh rate
- $ 2,199 for the GeForce RTX 3070 model with a 1440p display and 165Hz refresh rate
- $ 2799 for GeForce RTX 3080 with 1440p display and 165Hz refresh rate
