Razer Debuts New Products During E3 2021, Including An Updated Blade 14 and Raptor 27
Razer is bringing back the Blade 14 – its popular gaming laptop that’s gone without updates for more than three years. During Razer’s E3 Keynote, the company announced massive changes to the portable gaming rig, including the introduction of an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor. The company also announced updates to the Raptor 27 monitor and a new USB-C GaN charger.
The Razer Blade 14 (MSRP $1799) is available in a variety of configurations, although it’ll max out with the GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and a Quad HD 165Hz display. All that tech is packed into a slim, redesigned package featuring a 14” screen and up to 12 hours of battery life.
“When we introduced the Blade 14 in 2013, Razer challenged the industry to think bigger, yet smaller. The original Blade 14 revolutionized the mobile gaming landscape, earned laptop of the decade, and brought us to where we are today,” said Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Systems Business Unit. “The new Blade 14 aims to shake up the industry once again by combining Razer’s decade worth of experience in crafting ultra-compact and high-end gaming machines with the power and efficiency of AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors. We are thrilled to bring the ultimate mobile gaming experience to gamers with the Razer Blade 14.”
As for the Raptor 27 ($799.99), the updated model is now THX certified, features a 165Hz display and 1ms response time, and is the “world’s first PC monitor to achieve THX Certification, undergoing more than 400 individual tests to ensure color, tone and images are displayed as their creators intended.” It’ll also feature Razer Chroma RGB lighting, letting you customize its look to match the rest of your battlestation.
Razer’s GaN charger (MSRP $179.99) was the least exciting of the bunch, but it might be the most practical. The charger provides you with 130W of charging power spread across two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports – making it easy to keep your gear powered up while on the road.
The Razer Blade 14 and charger are now available for purchase on the Razer website, while the Raptor 27 is up for pre-order.
