It’s kind of the same thing when it comes to the Blade 14’s somewhat sizable chin. 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. Multiple video and stereo audio sources can be relayed to multiple output devices with the help of cat5 matrix switch. One of its sources claims that the mobile version of the RTX 3000 Super series will arrive in early 2022. While we wouldn’t take this claim as gospel on its own, Lenovo also let the cat out of the bag by accidentally leaking a roadmap. VGA has become one of the de facto standards for PCs. Those who like to spend long hours gaming on their PCs are also risking back problems later in life if they’re not sat in a chair properly supports their backs. Anyone who has ever tried to buy a truly compact gaming laptop has probably faced this dilemma: Do you pick a bigger system for increased performance, or sacrifice fps and go with something smaller that’s a bit easier to carry around? As someone who often has to debate if they want to bring a typical 13-inch or 15-inch laptop with them while traveling, the real luxury of the Blade 14 is not really having to compromise on power or portability-the Blade 14 gives you both in spades.
This may be a helpful feature that you want to incorporate in your games wireless headset. Yes, you will face hurdles and this may make it difficult for you to focus on the various aspects of time management, but if you really want to taste success with your IM business, you will move past these hurdles and actually make time management a habit. It even statistically estimates the probability of success of each one, with a specific set of players, in some detail. 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. And with the Blade 14 measuring in at 12.59 x 8.66 x 0.66 inches, you’re getting all this in a machine that’s barely bigger than Razer’s 13-inch Blade Stealth (12 x 8.27 x 0.6 inches).

Even Razer, a company that’s been making gaming laptops for a decade, has struggled with finding that balance. Plus, with signs that the GPU shortage is coming to an end, the company could have the capacity in 2022 to add yet more models to its lineup. Using the same settings as before in Far Cry 5, the Blade 15 pumped out 109 fps versus 100 fps for the Blade 14. And in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at full HD on highest settings, it was a similar story, with the Blade 15 averaging 112 fps compared to 99 fps for the Blade 14. That said, when we look outside of Razer’s camp at other relatively compact gaming laptops, the Blade 14’s performance still compares quite favorably to systems like Alienware m15 R5 and the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE, with the Blade 14 (which is admittedly more expensive than its rivals) offering as good or better performance across nearly all of our productivity and gaming benchmarks.
Compared to the Blade Stealth I reviewed last year, the Blade 14 (100 fps) performed twice as well as Blade Stealth (48 fps) in Far Cry 5 at full HD and ultra graphics, which shouldn’t be a huge surprise given the difference in GPUs. That said, due to the Blade 15’s larger chassis, it does have more room to channel hot air away from its internals, which results in the Blade 15 enjoying around a 10% performance advantage in gaming compared to the Blade 15. That’s not an insignificant penalty, but for people really trying to min-max on portability, that trade-off might be worth it. So assume high-end designed laptops to consume more battery power when compared with low-end laptops that run with less powerful processors and a small screen display. It’s not bad enough to make the Blade 14 look or feel outdated, though I do wish Razer had found a way to shrink that bezel just a bit by including a 16:10 aspect ratio screen instead of a 16:9 display, which would give you a little extra room for both gaming and productivity. 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.
