AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX debut: Razer Blade 14 laptop review

Zen 3+ Nano Boost administered. The Blade 14 is redefining our expectations of what an ultrathin 14-inch laptop is capable of. As if the 2021 model wasn't already fast enough for its size, this latest 2022 revision raises the bar even higher particularly in processor performance.

Now almost a year old, the 2021 Blade 14 could be released today and it would still top most if not all 14-inch laptops currently available. Its AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU and GeForce RTX 3070/3080 graphics are no slouch in the laptop gaming space, but this year's update ups the ante even further with the newer Zen 3+ Ryzen 6900HX CPU, faster RAM, and both GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti graphics options.

Configurations start at $2000 USD with the GeForce RTX 3060 and 144 Hz FHD display up to $3500 USD with the RTX 3080 Ti and 165 Hz QHD display. All SKUs otherwise ship with the same Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU, 100 W TGP target, 16 GB of DDR5-4800 soldered RAM, and 1 TB PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD. Our unit in review is the middle option with the RTX 3070 Ti and 165 Hz QHD display for about $2700 retail. 

The direct competitor to the Blade 14 is the Asus Zephyrus G14 series. Since there are so few 14-inch gaming laptops, however, we'll also be comparing the Blade 14 with more traditionally-sized 15.6-inch or larger models as well like the MSI Stealth GS66 or Lenovo Legion C7.

Case — Classic Razer In A Smaller Size

The chassis remains identical to last year's version since the 2022 version is an internal performance update only. The year-old design still feels fresh, however, especially since competition remains sparse in the 14-inch gaming space. It remains thinner than the Zephyrus G14 by a noticeable margin while weighing about the same for a denser feel. Of course, Razer users will be giving up on the unique AniMe Matrix LED features of the Asus for that slimmer and smoother unibody build.

Some basics that we've come to expect from high-end Ultrabooks like a fingerprint reader or webcam shutter continue to be missing.

Communication

Wireless has been swapped from the Killer AX1690i to the Qualcomm WCN685x. Both are capable of Wi-Fi 6E speeds, however, and so the change is more of a sideways step than a full-on upgrade.

Accessories and Warranty

Some Razer logo stickers are included in the box alongside the usual AC adapter and paperwork. As for the warranty, Razer is introducing two-year protection for the battery on each new purchase on top of the standard one-year limited warranty for the laptop.

Display — QHD With All The Bells And Whistles

The 1440p IPS panel on our 2022 test unit is the TL140BDXP02-2 whereas our 2021 unit carried the TL140BDXP02-0. Everything else is otherwise nearly the same between them for essentially the same viewing experience year-over-year. This remains one of the only 14-inch models you can find in the market at the moment with native 165 Hz refresh rate, FreeSync Premium, full DCI-P3 coverage, and fast response times all in one.

It's worth noting that the latest Asus Zephyrus G14 model has moved to 16:10 whereas the Blade 14 is still 16:9. Unlike the Razer, however, the Asus model has no 165 Hz option.

* ... smaller is better

Independent measurements with our X-Rite colorimeter show nearly identical color spaces between the QUD 2021 Blade 14 and QUD 2022 Blade 14 at approximately 97 percent of DCI-P3. By default, however, the display appears to be set to sRGB instead of DCI-P3 with no clear way to switch to DCI-P3. In comparison, the original 2021 model was set to DCI-P3 by default. We'll update this section of the review should we successfully switch the color profile from sRGB to DCI-P3. Razer advertises full sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage for its FHD SKUs and QHD SKUs, respectively.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
15.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 6.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
16.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 8.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21941 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance — Ryzen 9 6900HX Debut

 
 

Testing Conditions

Our unit was set to Performance mode via Windows and the CPU and GPU set to Boost and High, respectively, via Synapse prior to running any performance benchmarks below. We recommend users become familiar with the Synapse software as many key features are toggled here including the video refresh rate and MUX switch between Optimus and discrete graphics. In comparison, the 2021 Blade 14 Synapse software lacked the MUX switch option.

Processor — Noticeable Single-Thread Performance Boost

We noted in our 2021 Blade 14 review that single-thread performance was disappointing relative to other H-series CPUs. Thankfully, the newer Ryzen 9 6900HX has addressed these concerns with single-thread and multi-thread performance boosts of about 30 percent and 10 percent, respectively, over its previous generation Ryzen 9 5900HX counterpart. Raw multi-thread performance is within single-digit percentage points of the 12th gen Core i7-12800H as found on the larger Blade 17. In short, the Blade 14 can indeed offer a similar level of CPU performance as a "regular sized" gaming laptop.

The Ryzen 9 6900HX can likely run faster on a larger chassis. The 15.6-inch Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551QS with the older Ryzen 9 5900HX, for example, is neck-to-neck with our smaller Blade 14 in terms of processor performance.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon shows no DPC issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage. However, a latency spike may occur when running Prime95 to stress the CPU. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is otherwise smooth and with no dropped frames. CPU and GPU utilization would be very low at just 3 percent and 7 percent, respectively.

Storage Devices — Now With PCIe4 x4 Support

One of our main complaints about the 2021 Blade 14 has been addressed on the 2022 model. Users can now configure with faster PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSDs instead of being limited to PCIe3 x4 speeds. Sequential read rates from our Samsung PM9A1 MZVL21T0HCLR can reach over 6600 MB/s sustained compared to ~3500 MB/s sustained on last year's Samsung PM981a MZVLB1T0HBLR.

GPU Performance — Not Much Of An Upgrade

The performance jump from the GeForce RTX 3070 in the 2021 Blade 14 to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti in our 2022 model is minor-to-moderate depending on the game and resolution setting. Games on the 2022 model can run up to 30 to 40 percent faster if on lower graphical settings while higher settings at the native 1440p resolution will see much smaller advantages of under 10 percent. Cyberpunk 2077 is an excellent example where this would occur. We suspect that the significant bump in single-thread CPU performance over the Ryzen 9 5900HX is responsible for the much faster frame rates in CPU-bound scenarios while the faster DDR5-4800 RAM of the 2022 model can contribute more than the slower DDR4-3200 RAM in the older 2021 model when gaming at higher resolutions.

The difference between the mobile RTX 3070 and mobile RTX 3070 Ti is relatively minor according to 3DMark benchmarks despite the fact that larger performance margins can be observed when running actual games on certain resolutions. This suggests that the faster CPU and RAM on this year's Blade 14 are less of a bottleneck to the GPU.

Target TGP continues to be limited to 100 W which is on the lower-end of the performance scale. The MSI Vector GP66, for example, comes with the same RTX 3070 Ti GPU as our 2022 Blade 14 but with a higher TGP target of 150 W for up to 15 to 20 percent faster graphics performance.

Running on the Balanced profile instead of the Maximum Performance profile will impact both CPU and GPU performance by about 6 percent.
