For those on the move, the Blade 14 supports quick charging via USB-C, reaching 80% charge in just one hour.
The Blade 14’s performance capabilities are truly impressive. At its core lies the powerful AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS processor, which boosts up to 5.2GHz and incorporates the innovative AMD Ryzen AI, the world’s first dedicated artificial intelligence engine on a Windows x86 processor.

This GPU delivers more graphics power per cubic inch than any other 14-inch gaming laptop. The Blade 14’s RTX 40 Series Laptop GPU leverages AI-driven NVIDIA DLSS 3 frame generation, further enhancing overall performance.
To prevent overheating, the Blade 14 employs a bespoke vapor chamber cooling solution with the world’s thinnest exhaust fins, measuring only 0.05 mm. This innovative cooling system improves CPU cooling performance by up to 5% while maintaining the laptop’s compact form factor.
Razer understands the importance of customization and expandability, offering users the ability to tailor their Blade 14 experience. The laptop ships with up to 32 GB of DDR5-5600 MHz memory, but those seeking even more power can upgrade to 64 GB. Similarly, users can expand storage capacity by upgrading the 1 TB NVMe SSD to a maximum of 4 TB, accommodating the needs of gamers and creators with large file sizes and extensive libraries.
The Blade 14’s display is a standout feature, boasting a modern 16:10 QHD+ display with edge-to-edge clarity. The display offers a fast 240 Hz refresh rate, an incredibly low 3 ms response time, and AMD FreeSync Premium for a crisp, frame-perfect gaming experience.
