Razer Blade 18

Razer Reveals Their Most Powerful Razer Blade 18 Ever

I could be wrong in saying this, but I think the Razer Blade 18 is the largest laptop that Razer make. It’s probably the heaviest too. Razer has revealed the latest Razer Blade 18 and boy, it’s a monster. It’s sporting a 14th Gen Core i9, an RTX 4090, up to 32Gb DDR5, up to 4K 200Hz, and Thunderbolt™ 5.

With Great Power Comes Great… Weight?

This builds on the success of the Blade 14 and Blade 16 which were unveiled at CES 2024. The Blade 18 sets a whole new benchmark for gaming and creative work with unrivalled desktop-grade performance. It’s also housed within a sleek anodized aluminium unibody form factor.

“The Blade 18 embodies Razer’s relentless drive to push the boundaries of what a gaming laptop can be, with a host of world’s first innovations,” says Travis Furst, Head of Notebook & Accessories Division at Razer. “We are excited to deliver the Blade 18 as it ushers in a new era of Razer products equipped with Thunderbolt 5, including upcoming cutting-edge Thunderbolt accessories. With these innovations, the Blade 18 blurs the line between desktop performance and mobile convenience, ensuring our users are equipped with nothing but the absolute best to dominate in gaming and creativity.”

“Thunderbolt 5 enables a game-changing level of performance, and it is exciting to see leading brands like Razer bring innovative solutions that incorporate it to market,” said Jason Ziller, VP and GM of Client Connectivity Division at Intel. “Thunderbolt 5 enables total performance for video and data of up to 120Gbps via Bandwidth Boost – three times more than prior gen Thunderbolt – and twice the bandwidth for data transfer to deliver an outstanding solution for creators and gamers.”
