It seems that an AMD-powered Razer Blade laptop is on its way, going off teasers from Frank Azor and Ming-Liang Tan. The laptop is expected to be a Blade 14 with Ryzen Cezanne H APUs and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs.

Frank Azor and Ming-Liang Tan have dropped hints that Razer plans to release an AMD-powered Razer Blade. Writing on Twitter, Azor invited Tan's thoughts 'about making an AMD equipped Razer Blade', to which Tan responded with a degree of trepidation. However, Tan subsequently added:

FWIW I think we could design/engineer a pretty awesome @AMD gaming laptop. The current laptops out there don't really push the limits of what can be done. What would you guys like to see in a @Razer Blade with AMD?

In our opinion, Azor and Tan would only speculate about Razer releasing such a laptop if one were already in the pipeline. Hence, this seems more like an exercise in building hype for the next Razer Blade than anything else. Neither company has anything to reveal yet, but benchmarks leaks have revealed a few aspects about the upcoming AMD-powered Razer Blade.

Based on two 3DMark listings, it seems that Razer plans to equip a 'PI411' with up to a Ryzen 9 5900HX, the second-most powerful APU in AMD's Cezanne H arsenal. Additionally, the company will pair Cezanne H APUs with NVIDIA RTX 30 series GPUs. So far, 3DMark has shown that Razer has been developing the 'PI411' with an RTX 3060 and RTX 3070, but we would not be surprised if the company released an RTX 3080 variant, too. Unfortunately, it is unclear when Razer will announce the Blade 14 with AMD APUs, although we imagine that an announcement is not that far off.
