Razer Announces Ultra Thin Blade 14 Laptop, Raptor 27 Monitor, & GaN Charger at First E3 Keynote

For the first time ever, gaming tech giant Razer decided to host an E3 keynote. At their debut event, Razer brought the power by unveiling some impressive new tech highlighted by the return of the Blade 14 laptop. More within.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo is traditionally a time for gamers to come together to see the next big things. Typically, that has to do with gaming and the hardware that the games are played on. This year, Razer decided to take advantage of having the attention of the vast majority of the gaming world to present their latest tech.

At the event, Razer announced three new products and provided an update for their previously announced mask, called Project Hazel (still undergoing tests but will release in Q4 2021). The main product that Razer spent the most time on was the return of the Razer Blade 14, what they dub as the world’s most powerful 14″ gaming laptop.

Razer Blade 14

This thing is a beast in a small package. The Razer Blade 14 includes the AMD Ryzen™9 5900HX8-core, 16-thread processor and the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs, up to an NVIDIAGeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. That’s an insane amount of power in such a tiny frame.

The impressiveness doesn’t end there, though. The Razer Blade 14 also features a 12-hour battery, which is unexpected for a 14″ laptop of this caliber. Although, that 12-hour battery life may be dependent on how you use it. It may be less if you’re gaming without the charger.

That 14″ display is no slouch either. Consumers can purchase the Razer Blade 14 with either a Full HD 144Hz or the Quad HD 165Hz. Whichever one you choose, you’re in for a crisp and fluid visual gaming experience, especially with the integrated AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology.

The Razer Blade 14 is available now, starting at $1,799.

GaN Charger

While I was really impressed with the Razer Blade 14, I was just as impressed with its charger. That isn’t something that people usually say about laptop chargers, but GaN Charger is the exception.

This small, but powerful USB-C charger has the capability to charge up to 4 devices with 2 USB-C ports and 2 USB-A ports. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the GaN Charger is also a 3rd of the size of most laptop bricks.

The 130W GaN Charger is also available now for $179.99. Though, as of this writing it appears it sold out as soon as it released.

Razer Raptor 27

Razer concluded their product announcements with the reveal of the Razer Raptor 27, a new gaming monitor from the award-winning monitor line. This new version features a 165Hz display and 1ms response time. Thus, meeting the demand for image quality and speed needed in today’s high-frame-rate and high-resolution AAA game titles.

Furthermore, the Razer Raptor 27 is the first gaming monitor to achieve THX Certification. That’s no easy feat, as the process consists of undergoing more than 400 individual tests to ensure color, tone and images are displayed as their creators intended, for a stunning picture quality and level of detail.

The Razer Raptor 27 is available now for $799.99.
