Razer has unveiled its updated Blade gaming laptop lineup over at CES 2022.

Mostly retaining their predecessors’ design, the Blades receive small updates to their form factor, with slightly larger keys and a thinner hinge that creates better ventilation for the machine. As you’d expect, the bulk of the changes come in the internals: all three laptops can now carry DDR5 RAM for the first time ever, and you’ll be able to choose between NVIDIA‘s RTX 3080 Ti or 3070 Ti GPU, marking a significant jump from previous iterations. The latter alone is capable of running games at 1440p at 100 frames per second, according to Razer, and the former boasts even higher performance than a desktop Titan RTX card.

Graphics aside, the laptops will now also come with CPU upgrades. On the larger end of the spectrum, both the Blade 17 and 15 will now be equipped with Intel‘s latest 12th-gen Core H-series chips up to the 14-core i9-12900H, while the Blade 14 will run on AMD‘s Ryzen 9 6900HX. Other features include a new UHD display option for the Blade 15 at 144Hz, a larger 82WHr battery capacity for the Blade 17, and a 1080p IR webcam for the Blade 14.

For those interested, the Blade 14 will start at $2,000 USD with pre-orders opening on February 10, while the Blade 15 and 17 will start at $2,500 USD and $2,700 USD respectively with pre-orders coming January 25. You can learn more over on Razer’s website.

Elsewhere in gaming, Alienware’s Concept Nyx can stream games to all your home devices.
