To kick off its part in the 2022 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show, the Singaporean-American tech company announced on Tuesday that three new Razer Blade gaming laptops will be hitting the market in the first quarter of the year.
The new Razer Blade 14, Razer Blade 15, and Razer Blade 17 will have some of the latest and greatest on the market and will all ship with Windows 11 installed.
All laptops will have NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs with the top of the line Razer Blade 14s and 15s installed with a 3080 Ti. The best Razer Blade 17 you can get comes with a UHD RTX 3080 with 4K native resolution. That particular model costs more than $4,000.
Each of the base models will come installed with a RTX 3060 card. Furthermore, each will include DDR5 memory with speeds up to 4800MHz, and each will have the new 4th Generation Max-Q Technologies, that encompass the CPU Optimizer, Rapid Core Scaling, and Battery Boost 2.0.
The 14-inch Razer Blade is the smallest, yet might be the best in the bunch compared to its competition. Billed as the “most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop of 2021,” the new and improved Razer Blade 14 goes beyond that with an AMD Ryzen 9 processor with 16GB of DDR5 memory installed. It’s lightweight, only weighing in at 3.92 pounds or 1.78 kilograms. For this base model, it costs $1,999.99 / €2,199.99. Pre-orders start 10th February at Razer online, in-store, and at select locations.
With the 15-inch model, consumers get a slightly larger screen with all the bells and whistles. A “Full HD 360Hz” and a “QHD 240Hz” display configuration will join an all-new “UHD 144Hz” refresh rate. This base model starts at $2,499.99 / €2,799.99 with pre-orders exclusively at Razer.com and Razer Store locations starting 25th January 2022.
Finally, the new Razer Blade 17 will come packed with enhanced audio and increased power delivery. Better sound and longer battery life, plus a better power supply when plugged in with the new GaN-powered 280W charger. A base Blade 17 will cost $2,699.99 / €2,999.99, and these will also be exclusively at Razer.com and Razer Store locations to pre-order on 25th January as well.
While sim racers and racing game enthusiasts usually steer clear of laptops when building up a racing setup, these particular models are, on paper, pretty incredible to say the least. For the travelling racer, these might be your best friend. In any case, even the least expensive model in the 14-inch category blows my current PC desktop out of the water, so iRacing should be a breeze.
If you’re in the market for a decent laptop regardless, definitely give these ones a look. In any case, keep it pinned here at Traxion.GG as CES 2022 continues on through the rest of the week and full specifications can be found on the Razer website.
