The Razer Blade laptop PC not only offers high-end gaming performance but also features a screen with two different native resolutions. A convincing argument for anyone looking for versatility.
Why do you have to vacillate between a PC with a 4K panel and another that offers a higher refresh rate at the expense of graphics fidelity? A priori, when buying a laptop, you decide on fixed characteristics. And we know: Voting means giving up. In an age where a PC is designed for versatility, this can be frustrating. But Razer may have found the solution: its high-end Blade product comes with a 16-inch screen that offers two different native resolutions – 4K at 120 Hz and QHD+ 240 Hz.
Some may ask: What’s the point? Specifically, these two native definitions meet different requirements. 4K is ideal for consuming content on SVOD platforms (Netflix, Disney+, etc.), while QHD+ will be slightly better suited for gaming in the eyes of performance purists (frame rate at any price). The philosophy of the Blade is therefore to respond to the maximum possible uses, with a chameleon screen adapted to the desires of users. Of course, nothing stops you from sticking to a single definition and never deviating from it. The Blade’s technical data sheet is sufficiently packed to ensure maximum comfort during demanding tasks.A nice gaming PC. // Source: Razer
The Razer Blade’s screen is incredible
How much does it cost ?
The Razer Blade starts at €3,399. Expect to pay €2,000 more for the RTX 4090 version and at least €4,199 for the hybrid screen configuration.
In addition to offering two native definitions, the Razer Blade screen also features Mini-LED technology, a notable evolution of LCD. It relies on more backlight zones for finer and controlled light diffusion behind the pixels. This results in deeper blacks without compromising light output. Razer’s in-house calibration ensures dynamic playback with particularly eye-catching images. For a title like Diablo IV, the red is very bright. It’s super seductive to the eye. The Mini-LED can also do its best with films and series that are available in 4K on streaming platforms.
In an open space or a co-working center, we won’t be embarrassed to take out the Razer Blade
Please note that switching from one definition to another requires a full computer restart. From an ergonomic point of view, this is not always optimal, especially since switching can cause display errors (problems that can be corrected using software). The experience requires some fine-tuning, but that’s the price you pay to benefit from this feature.
Note also that the Blade’s screen is elegantly highlighted in a design that is both sober and premium. With its sturdy aluminum chassis, available in black or gray, the Razer offers build quality worthy of the best (hello Apple). Above all, apart from the bright brand logo on the cover, it doesn’t resemble the cliché of large gaming PCs, which tend to be oversized to show that they belong to a segment. In an open space or co-working center, you won’t be embarrassed to take the Razer Blade out of your bag. All the better for a product at this price.
However, you shouldn’t be fooled by appearances: Even if the Blade looks like an Ultrabook, it remains a huge powerhouse with a weight of almost 2.5 kg. Several configurations are possible, with a 13th generation Intel Core i9-13950HX 5.5 GHz processor coupled with a GeForce RTX 40XX series (from 60 to 90) and RAM expandable to 32 GB. We tested the version with an RTX 4070 (8GB), and the performance was more than there.
Even while maintaining the 4K resolution, we were able to run titles like Diablo IV, Forza Horizon 5, Remnant 2 or even Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart without any problems – with high graphics settings and more than pleasant fluidity (thanks to the DLSS technology). . We even had fun connecting the Blade to a 49-inch Samsung G9 screen (5120×1440 pixels) via HDMI 2.1. If the laptop PC needed to breathe a little more, it was never afraid to do so thanks to the good performance reserves for acclimatization to a larger screen space. The Razer Blade is expensive, but it’s not a waste of money.
