Right let's have a further look at the product while I'll highlight some interesting features. To provide Wi-Fi 6E, Razer opted for a Qualcom WCN 685X dual band instead of the more common Intel AX211. However, the transfer rates and performance are still steady and reliable. We'll test out all WIFI bands and LAN throughput later on this review.


The 2023 model uses the same 240 Hz panel as the 2022 model, which offers speedy response times, full DCI-P3 colors, and a decent contrast ratio suitable for both graphics editing and gaming and 500 nits of brightness.


While the Razer has a solid selection of ports, the Blade 14 isn't using the available space effectively. Some ports are located around the back of the machine; the right side is fairly empty even. Likely, cooling is routed through the sides, and with these components, Razer will need a lot of cooling capacity. We'll check that out with FLIR imaging, though I can already mention that heat is exhausted mainly at the backside.



Powered on, you'd expect your normal laptop, but this excels in performance on most fronts. Overall the laptop is fairly silent, even with the CPU cores stressed. It'll start making noise once you start using the GPU, though. We'll show you that in some charts in the power segment later on in the article.
