Razer Blade 14 Ryzen 9 Laptop Review: Blade Pro 17 Performance At Half The Size

The AMD combo breaker. After being exclusively Intel for a decade, the Razer Blade series has finally gotten an AMD option that just so happens to outperform any Intel model that came before it. And, in typical Razer fashion, all that power has been condensed into an unbelievably small and portable form factor.

The original 14-inch Razer Blade 14 launched almost 10 years ago with the Core i7-4702HQ and GeForce GTX 765M. The manufacturer would later retire the model after a few years to instead focus on the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth and 15.6-inch Blade 15. Now that the Stealth and Blade 15 are well established, Razer has decided to revive the Blade 14 with updated hardware.

Unveiled at E3 2021, the new Blade 14 is notable not just for its small and attractive form factor, but also for being the first Razer laptop with an AMD CPU. Its core specifications could easily pass for a larger 17.3-inch gaming laptop including its Ryzen 9 5900HX Zen 3 processor, GeForce RTX Ampere graphics, 16 GB RAM, M.2 PCIe 3 NVMe SSD, and 144 Hz FHD or 165 Hz QHD display with DCI-P3 coverage and FreeSync support. Our test unit is the upper mid-range option with the RTX 3070 and 165 Hz QHD display for $2200 USD retail, but other SKUs range from $1800 up to $2800.

Direct competitors in this space are far and few between because there just aren't that many high-power 14-inch gaming laptops like the Blade 14. MSI hasn't had a 14-inch gaming laptop for years leaving the Asus Zephyrus G14 as the only other major 14-inch gaming laptop with similar specifications to the Razer.

Case — Same Sleek Design, New Smaller Size

The chassis design and aluminum alloy materials are similar to the latest Blade Stealth, Blade 15, and Blade Pro models. If you've held any of these Blade models in the last few years, then you'll already have a good idea of how the Blade 14 looks and feels. The system is about 20 percent larger than the Blade Stealth with the same strong base and smooth matte surfaces.

The lid is noticeably more susceptible to twisting and warping than the rest of the laptop. It's not bad by any means, but we do find the lids on the HP Spectre x360 14 or ZenBook Duo 14 to be stiffer for a better sense of longevity.

The system is slightly smaller than the Zephyrus G14 in all three dimensions while being about 200 g heavier in the process. It's noticeably denser as a result, but the small size makes it feel as portable as any other 14-inch Ultrabook including the Asus ZenBook series. The Blade 14 has come a long way since the original 2015 model which is now as big as a 2020 15.6-inch Dell XPS 15.

Connectivity — Thunderbolt Is Out

Port options are the same as on the Zephyrus G14 albeit rearranged. Users can connect up to three external monitors or recharge the laptop via USB-C instead of the proprietary barrel charger. There is no Thunderbolt support due to the lack of an integrated controller on AMD processors which makes the Blade 14 the only modern Blade laptop to not support the Razer Core eGPU series. Asus partly got around this issue by introducing its own proprietary connector on the ROG Flow X13 to support specific external GPU docking stations.

Communication

An Intel AX210 comes standard for both Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 compatibility whereas most other laptops are still shipping with the Intel AX200/201 for regular Wi-Fi 6 instead. Most users won't be able to fully exploit Wi-Fi 6E as the standard requires yet another router designed around Wi-Fi 6E. This feature is more about future-proofing the Blade 14 more than anything else.

Webcam

The camera has not been upgraded in any meaningful way. Users are getting the same low quality 1 MP webcam that has been commonplace on laptops for years. An IR sensor is present for Windows Hello, but a webcam shutter is still absent.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by easily removable T5 Torx screws not unlike on other Blade models. There's not much to upgrade, however, as the system is lacking removable RAM and any secondary M.2 slots. The two fans and vapor chamber cooling solution cover almost the entire motherboard.

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes a small velvet wipe and some Razer logo stickers. The standard one-year limited warranty applies with extension options.

Input Devices — Like a Blade Stealth

Keyboard

Aside from the short-lived optical switch option, the keyboards and clickpads on Razer Blade laptops have remained very consistent between models and sizes. The typing experience on a 13.3-inch 2018 Blade Stealth, for example, would be close to what you'd get on a 17.3-inch 2021 Blade Pro for better or worse. Key feedback remains lighter and shallower than on other laptops including on the MSI GS66 or Asus Flow X13. We personally prefer deeper and firmer keys closer to what you'd get on the HP Spectre series, but you'll know exactly what to expect from the Blade 14 if you've typed on any other Blade laptop in the past.

The printing on all keys are illuminated when the per-key RGB backlight is active. This may not be true on international models much like on the existing Blade Stealth, 15, or Pro 17 internal models. The competing Zephyrus G14 has no per-key RGB lighting option.

Touchpad

The clickpad (11.1 x 7.6 cm) is smaller and larger than the ones on the Blade 15 (13 x 8 cm) and Zephyrus G14 (10.5 x 6 cm), respectively. It's actually quite spacious given the limited 14-inch form factor. We're still not fans of the quiet and spongy feedback, however, which feels unsatisfying to click on.

Display — 165 Hz, FreeSync, QHD, and DCI-P3 All-in-One

HWiNFO returns a panel name of TL140BDXP02-2 which appears to be the 14-inch version of the 15.6-inch TL156VDXP02-0 panel on the Blade 15. This is the first time that such a panel has appeared in our database meaning no other laptop available at the moment is using the same 14-inch QHD panel as the Blade 14.

All aspects of the QHD panel here are well above average. Response times aren't as fast as OLED or certain IPS panels like the one on the MSI GS75 or Blade Pro 17, but they're still good enough for fast-paced gaming. Image quality is slightly grainier than on the glossy Blade 15 or Blade Pro 17 due to the matte overlay.

Note that the 165 Hz panel here is limited to 60 Hz or 165 Hz with no "in between" 144 Hz setting. AMD FreeSync is supported and automatically enabled.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers essentially all of sRGB and DCI-P3 as advertised by the manufacturer. DCI-P3 coverage was previously only attainable on certain 4K or OLED configurations and so this is the first time we're seeing it on a 165 Hz QHD IPS display. Owners are getting almost everything here with no compromises including fast response times, fast refresh rates, and deep colors whereas most other laptop panels often underperform in at least one of these three areas.

Razer advertises "individually calibrated [displays] for quality and true color accuracy" and, sure enough, our X-Rite colorimeter analysis reveals exactly that. Average grayscale and color deltaE values sit at just 0.7 and 2.25, respectively, to prove that any end-user calibration attempts will have only minor improvements at best. If we are to nitpick, orange colors seem to be slightly more inaccurate than the other tested colors on CalMAN.

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
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.6 ms rise
↘ 5.2 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. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
16.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8 ms rise

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 636 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is decent only when under shade. At just over 300 nits, the Blade 14 display is about as bright as on the non-OLED display on Blade Stealth or Blade 15. Users may want to disable AMD Vari-Bright via the Radeon settings or else maximum brightness may drop when running on battery power.

Performance — Faster Than Most 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch Laptops

All current SKUs come with the same AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX Zen 3 CPU with no Intel variant. This particular processor is typically found on much larger laptops like the Asus Strix Scar 17 or Lenovo Legion 7 and so it's uncommon to see it here on a 14-inch form factor. Asus beat Razer to market with its own Zen-powered 14-inch gaming laptop last year and then again at CES 2021 with the ROG Flow X13.

GPU options include the GeForce RTX 3060, 3070, and 3080 each at 100 W TGP with Resizable Bar support. These are essentially the GeForce Max-Q versions as thicker laptops like the Schenker XMG Ultra 17 come with "full power" 165 W TGP options.

Our test unit was set to custom performance mode with the CPU and GPU on max power via Razer Synapse. We recommend owners become familiar with both Synapse and the Radeon applications as key features are toggled here.

Can an octa-core Ryzen 9 CPU actually perform in a tiny 14-inch laptop? The answer is yes — for the most part. Of the eight different laptops we've tested thus far with the same Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU, our Blade 14 is only behind by about 5 to 10 percent in Multi-thread-heavy benchmarks like CineBench. This delta can grow to 15 percent in single-threaded benchmarks like 7-Zip (-mmt1) which suggests that the CPU in the Blade 14 benefits from shorter maximum Turbo Boost potential than on other Ryzen 9 laptops.

The competing 11th gen Tiger Lake-H Intel Core i9-11900H is faster than our Ryzen 9 in single-threaded workloads by about 20 to 30 percent while being slightly slower in multi-threaded loads by up to 10 percent. A similar pattern can be observed between the Ryzen U-series and Core U-series CPUs as well.

Overall Turbo Boost sustainability is still very good nonetheless. Running CineBench R15 xT in a loop shows more consistent performance over long periods than on the Asus ROG Flow X13 or Zephyrus G14. This is easily one of the fastest 14-inch laptops you can find in terms of multi-thread processor performance  if not the fastest.

Storage Devices — Just One Internal Drive

The majority of Razer Blade laptops come with Samsung PM981 A NVMe SSDs and the Blade 14 continues this trend. It's somewhat disappointing to see no PCIe 4.0 support, however, but that can be partly blamed on AMD and its Zen 3 architecture. A small handful of 14-inch Ultrabooks like the Vaio Z are already shipping with PCIe 4.0 drives.

GPU Performance — 100 W TGP GeForce RTX Graphics

Our 100 W GeForce RTX 3070 is roughly 4 to 8 percent slower than the 130 W RTX 3070 in the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QR. When considering that the Blade 14 is just a fraction of the size of the Asus, many users may find the slight performance deficit an easy pill to swallow. Raw performance is still about 9 to 26 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q as found on most older (and larger) thin-and-light gaming laptops.

Upgrading to the RTX 3080 SKU will net users a relatively minor 10 to 13 percent gain in graphics performance while downgrading to the RTX 3060 SKU will cut performance by about 14 to 25 percent.

Real-world gaming performance is within just a few percentage points on average of a typical GeForce RTX 3070 laptop. Idling on Witcher 3 shows consistent frame rates over time with no major dips.
