Razer Blade RTX 4090/4080 Gaming Laptops Now Available
The new Razer Blade 16 and Razer Blade 18 are now available for purchase beginning February 8. These brand-new chassis from Razer were announced at CES earlier this year, where they garnered a combined 19 awards and recognitions. Both laptops sport the Intel® 13th generation Core™ i9 HX processor and NVIDIA®’s RTX™ 40-series GPUs all operating at the maximum possible TGP, reaching 175W with an RTX 4080 or 4090. The expansive 16:10 aspect ratio displays provide gamers and creators alike with the perfect canvas for work and play.
Razer Blade 16 RTX 40 Gaming Laptops
The Blade 16 sets the standard for peak performance combined with portability, packing a Core i9 13950HX and up to an RTX 4090 into a footprint only marginally larger than a previous generation 15-inch laptop. The result is a machine that delivers more graphics power per cubic inch of volume than any other 16-inch gaming laptop. The 16-inch display is available with a first-of-its-kind dual-mode mini-LED panel, capable of switching between two native resolutions and refresh rates: immersive UHD+ at 120Hz or FHD+ at an ultra-smooth 240Hz.
Razer Blade 18 RTX 40 Gaming Laptops
The Blade 18 is the ultimate desktop replacement, combining desktop-grade performance with a desktop-level peripheral feature set. Outfitted with up to an RTX 4090 and either a Core i9 13950HX or 13980HX processor operating at 65W TDP out of the box, the Blade 18 delivers more than double the processing performance and 150% greater graphics performance than a 2021 Blade 17. It also sports a 6-speaker array with THX® Spatial Audio, a comprehensive selection of ports, and a 5MP webcam.
Razer is also launching a brand-new CPU overclocking feature for Blade 16 and Blade 18, available with the latest Razer Synapse update. With this feature, Razer is taking advantage of the new Blades’ HX processors to allow users to push performance beyond factory spec. Blade 16 and Blade 18 users will have access to customizable tuning parameters for CPU core voltage, sustained boost power maximum wattage, short boost power maximum wattage, and boost power time window to deliver truly unbridled potential.

Editor’s Note: For those uninitiated, an RTX 4090 laptop GPU is not the same are the RTX 4090 desktop GPU. NVIDIA’s naming scheme is confusing and a bit deceptive, especially if you’re unfamiliar or up to date with these products. The RTX 4090 laptop GPU performs around 30% to 50% slower than the RTX 4090 desktop GPU, depending on the game title and/or resolution. If I am not mistaken, the RTX 4090 laptop GPU performs somewhere near an RTX 4070 Ti desktop GPU, give or take. On the flip side, although slower, the RTX 4090 laptop GPU is more power efficient than the RTX 4090 desktop GPU. Whether you opt for a gaming laptop or a gaming desktop will depend on your needs.
