Razer has revealed a new 14 inch laptop has part of its E3 announcement. The Razer Blade 14 is out now and it marks the first appearance of AMD components in a Razer laptop.

Razer is known to stick with Nvidia and Intel Configurations, but this move comes as a slight shock to everyone. This move might come in favor of player loyalties and purchasing habits.

The Razer Blade 14 comes with an AMD Processor, the Ryzen 9 5900HX, and as a result, will offer faster performance. Complementing that AMD Ryzen CPU will be RTX 30-series graphics cards up to the 3080, the usual solid SSD and RAM offerings, and also some tasty screen offerings. 

In terms of display, Quad HD (1440p) 165Hz display, that’s squeezed into a 14-inch laptop. You can also get a Full HD (1080p) screen that has a 144Hz refresh, and both will be IPS-grade. The 1080p screen will be 100% SRGB, while the 1440p panel is set to be 100% DCI-P3 and will feature AMD FreeSync by default. As a result, Razer Blade 14 will quickly become one of the top-end RTX 3080 laptops.

The Blade 14 will retain Razer laptops’ reputation for being super thin and light, coming in at only 0.66” x 8.66” x 12.59” in HDW dimensions, making it the smallest 14-inches on the market. Given the way, Razer laptops hold the top position of best gaming laptops, this is likely to be a winning combination for them.

The Razer Blade 14 starts at GBP £1799.99 / USD $1799.99 / EUR €1,999.99 MSRP and is available now at Razer.com, and with select retail partners.

Razer also announced a couple of accessories and peripherals to bolster Razer 2021 release list. There’s a new charging unit to complement your laptop that offers two USB-C and two USB-A ports for on-the-go power for any device.
