New Razer Blade 14 Features

There has been much speculation in regard to which chips will power the next Razer Blade 14, which is one of the very few premium options in the portable 14-inch gaming space. And this morning, those chips were revealed finally. The processor in question as you should know will be AMD’s Ryzen 9 7940HS with eight cores, 16 threads, 24MB cache, as well as 35-54W TDP. The GPUs on the other hand will be Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4070.

Pricing is… well, as you should have anticipated, very high. The RTX 4060 model in question will be $2,399, while the base RTX 4070 model, on the other hand, will be $2,699.99. Both of the models will however have 16GB of DDR5 RAM. There will also be a very fancy mercury (white) model for $2,799.99, which will reportedly include 32GB of DDR5 RAM as well as the 4070. All three of the models that have been mentioned in this post will have 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 storage.

Razer and AMD Performance Estimates

Both Razer and AMD have provided some estimates in regards to performance, and those surprisingly include just little about power consumption as they basically just mentioned that the Blade would get up to 10 hours of video playback on a single charge, which is not really a big jump from prior years to this. That is interesting due to power consumption, rather than just raw frame rates, which has historically been the big advantage that AMD has over Intel.

Performance Benchmarks Comparing the 14-Inch Blade System to a Zephrus M16

But nevertheless, both Razer and AMD shared a couple of performance benchmarks comparing a 14-inch Blade system to a Zephyrus M16 with a Core i9-13900H. And it reportedly claims that the Ryzen system will deliver better performance on a couple of games, which is inclusive of Borderlands 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, as well as Final Fantasy XIV, and this is including a 12 percent increase in World of Tanks Encore as well as a reported 13 percent increase in the performance of Borderlands 3. (It does also admit that the Blade was just two percent slower in Cyberpunk 2077.)

AMD however also claims faster performance in various applications, and this is including small increases in Blender and Cinebench R23 performance, as well as a whopping 11 percent increase on Passmark CPUMark.

The Asus Laptop Zephyrus G14

And now, that comparison to the M16 is all well and great, but I really think that we all know what the elephant in the room is which is yet another Asus laptop called the Zephyrus G14, which is reportedly powered by this very exact same AMD processor. Not only does that device come with an RTX 4070, but it also can come with an RTX 4080 and even an RTX 4090. And as you should know, the 4090 model is the very same price as the 4060 Blade that is listed here. So, you know, there is that to keep in mind.
