Razer's new Blade 14 laptop is now available for order. The gaming laptop is one of the first to run on an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU. That chip is paired with up to NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti graphics, though you can opt for a less powerful GPU to save some cash. Based on its specs, the Blade 14 should compete with the best gaming laptops.
The 2021 Razer Blade 14 was the company's first AMD gaming laptop. Razer improved on that model with a refresh to the latest CPU and GPUs, DDR5 memory, and a MUX switch for enhanced performance. A MUX switch lets you disable a device's integrated graphics, allowing the system to rely on a dedicated GPU. Doing so delivers a performance boost at the cost of battery life.
