And if you don’t set them up properly, they might end up being inefficient at easing the traffic flow. To get a sharp computer image on the TV screen, you will need to ensure that you set the output resolution of the computer to match the native resolution of the TV. It could even be a perfect match for those 4K, 144Hz monitors we’re starting to see pop up. The RTX 2080 Super was already capable of running many of the best PC games in 4K, so we’ll have to see how much further the RTX 3080 Super could take performance. For others, it’s a low-key laptop that they wouldn’t be embarrassed to take out in public to sneakily play video games at a coffee shop. Now, that’s a huge incentive to play. While most mice provide the necessary functionality to play a game, gaming mouses are a must for you to be at the top of your game.
And, if you’re trying to game on battery, peak performance takes a noticeable hit too, though with how quickly the Blade 14 runs through juice when away from an outlet, at that point you’re better off dialing down graphics settings to improve battery life anyways. In simple words, if you want to dominate in Minecraft PVP game mode, you need to be good at clicking with your mouse. On our 165Hz review model, the Blade 14’s screen produced a good but not especially impressive brightness of 346 nits, and while colors appeared bright and colorful, because Razer uses a matte non-touch display, the Blade 14’s colors aren’t quite as vivid as you what you might see on a laptop with a glossy display. With a time of 6 hours and 49 minutes on our video rundown test, the Blade 14’s battery life is pretty unremarkable, maybe even bordering on slightly disappointing.

Systems like MSI’s Stealth 15M (7:59), the Alienware m15 R5 (7:27), and the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage (8:22) all posted longer runtimes, with Acer’s Triton 300 SE (6:11) being one of the few rival systems to not outlast the Blade 14. But considering all those laptops are more standard 15-inch systems, this really highlights the limits of putting all those power-hungry components into a small chassis with less room for big battery packs. With this in mind, most gamers consider the Alienware M14 as being the best gaming laptop under 1000 dollars. The financial year 20-21, has received a bit of a disheartening start, with almost it’s first quarter being spent in lockdown. That’s a bit of a bummer, but it’s still a stout GPU, and the benefit of taming it a bit is better thermals (especially in a relatively thin and light system). Now it’s true that Razer’s gaming laptops have never really been what anyone would call affordable, but with the Blade 14 starting at $1,800 for a Ryzen 9 5900 HX CPU, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and an RTX 3060 GPU, it feels like you’re paying an even bigger premium to put all those parts in a slightly more compact 14-inch chassis.
Going back to the GPU, not all mobile Ampere parts are created equal, even among the same model. It looks like desktop SKUs could be in the works too, according to leaker Kopite7kimi, claiming that “not only laptops” will see Super Ampere GPUs soon. Just last week we heard whispers that ‘Super’ variants of cards like the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 would find themselves inside the future best gaming laptop, with boosted clock speeds and extra CUDA cores. That’s the same capacity you’ll find on the standard mobile cards, but we can expect both extra CUDA cores and increased clock speeds in both models to help boost fps further. Since it took over a year for the RTX 2000 Super refresh, Nvidia would be right on schedule to announce a new range of mobile GPUs in the early part of next year. With the previous refresh, we saw the RTX 2070 Super almost matching the performance of the RTX 2080, while the RTX 2080 Super saw slightly improved performance over that card too. On top that, there is a $200 mail-in-rebate you can submit, effectively saving you $430 over the full list price.
