Thanks to a recent online leak, the new Razer Blade 14 may possibly come equipped with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU and an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU.
While any leak should be taken with a grain of salt, this one that was shared by @_rogame seems to line up with what we would anticipate from a new Razer Blade 14. To begin with, the smaller siblings of Razer’s laptop line usually come with somewhat lower-end specs compared to the larger ones.
For instance, the RTX 3060 and Ryzen 5900HX that’s rumored to power the new Razer Blade 14 can’t hold up to the RTX 3080 and 10th gen Intel Core i7 of the bigger and mightier powerful Razer Blade 17 that we tested near the beginning of this year.

In addition, it’s supposed to have a Time Spy score of 7,305, on par for a gaming laptop with the internals that supposedly power the Razer Blade 14.

While it won’t be as powerful, the Razer Blade 14 will probably be a hard laptop to buy. It won’t be cheap since Razer’s laptops never are. But, it might be slightly more affordable thanks to its specs. And, since it comes with a highly desired RTX 3000 series GPU, it’s possible that cryptominers and resellers will buy up supply as soon as the laptop is launched.
What do we want to see from a Razer Blade 14?
These specs would make the Razer Blade 14 a gaming laptop worth keeping an eye on, but we’d like to see a little more from the iconic manufacturer’s next device.
At the top of our list is portability, as this is a laptop after all. The Razer Blade 14’s smaller screen size gives it an immediate advantage over the Razer Blade 17, but trimming down the laptop’s size and weight, even more, would make it feel like a gaming device you can take on the go.
Another big area in need of improvement is battery life. Gaming laptops by their nature suck up battery thanks to their hardware, but if we could get a little more than the four hours we got out of the Razer Blade 17 in our tests, this would make it feel like you don’t always have to be next to a power source to enjoy your games.
We’ll have to wait and see how the Razer Blade laptop actually shapes up, and as we learn more we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
