With the emergence of the mobile RTX 4090, RTX 3080 Ti-powered gaming laptops no longer find themselves in the top spots of most performance charts and benchmarks. However, as most their successors debut at insanely high prices, previous generation models such as the Razer Blade 14 are getting significant price cuts which arguably make them worth a look from a price-performance perspective.
For example, the reputable American gaming specialist has now put the aforementioned Razer Blade 14 with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 with 8GB of VRAM on sale for US$1,799, which is a whopping 35 percent or US$1,000 discount relative to the original list price of US$2,799. The 14-inch gaming laptop is further equipped with 16GB of DDR4 memory, a large 1TB SSD and a beautiful 165Hz QHD display. At just 3.92 lbs, the Razer Blade 14 is also surprisingly light considering its powerful components.
We recommend prospective buyers check out our detailed written and video review of a slightly different configuration of the Razer Blade 14. Among other strong suits, we were impressed by the high-end gaming laptop’s colorful IPS display and the well-built aluminium chassis, while the cooling system of our RTX 3070-equipped test unit was surprisingly quiet under load. Assumably, this RTX 3080 configuration of the Razer Blade 14 offers even a bit more performance, and considering the steeply discounted deal price, it may be worth a look for gaming enthusiasts who value the portability of a 14-inch machine and don’t want to exceed a budget of US$2,000.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
