Gaming laptops are becoming more and more mainstream, and Razer’s Blade series remains at the top after more than a decade. Razer is introducing three updated models at CES 2024: A 14-inch Blade for portability, an 18-inch Blade to replace a powerful desktop, and a 16-inch Blade that’s a hybrid of the two.
The new Blade 16 features the “world’s first OLED 240Hz 16-inch display” and offers a 2560×1600 OLED panel as the base model screen. The laptop is equipped with the latest Intel Raptor Lake CPU tech, Core i9-14900HX 24-core, paired with the most powerful mobile graphics with the top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 4090. The RAM maxes out at 96 gigabytes of DDR5 at 5600Mhz.
The Blade 14, Razer’s most compact gaming laptop, offers a Ryzen 9 8945HS processor with GPU options topping out at an RTX 4070. The 2560×1600, 240Hz LED display of previous models is retained. The newest model will be available for pre-order on January 23rd, starting at $2,199.99.
The Blade 18 will feature a 4K resolution 165Hz IPS panel and will be the first gaming laptop with Thunderbolt 5. It won’t receive an update until later in the year, with expected latest Intel processors, Nvidia graphics cards, and a reshuffling of ports to accommodate the new technology.
