Increasing component prices could mean that laptops in 2022 may retail for higher prices. While other OEMs are yet to comment on the same, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan confirmed on Twitter that all Razer gaming laptops across the board, including the Razer Blade series, will see price hikes.

We expect to see several new laptop offerings from OEMs at CES 2022. These laptops are slated to feature upcoming Intel Alder Lake-P mobile processors with a possibility of AMD also introducing its Rembrandt Ryzen 6000 series offerings. However, laptop buyers next year may have to be prepared for increased pricing.

While we are not exactly sure if other OEMs are planning price hikes next year, Razer laptops are confirmed to cost more. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan tweeted those significant increases in component costs now means prices of all Razer laptops across the board, including the popular Razer Blade series, will see an increase in 2022. The actual price increase estimates will only be availabe once the laptops become official early next year.

Apart from CPUs, we also expect AMD to introduce a 6 nm refresh of the RDNA 2 cards such as the Radeon RX 6600 while Nvidia will introduce the likes of an RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU.

Increased CPU and GPU prices aren't the only contributing factors for Razer's (and possibly other OEMs) price hike. Other components such as DDR5 memory, new SSDs, etc. are all expected to have a hand in making laptops dearer in the coming months.
