Razer made waves today with their first full Keynote at E3 2021. The presentation announced three new devices sure to get gamers talking, the Razer Blade 14 ultimate AMD gaming laptop, the Razer Raptor 27 gaming monitor, and the Razer USB-C 130W GaN Charger.
Starting with the ‘compact’ announcement, the USB-C 130W GaN Charger boasts compact power. The device is 56% smaller than your standard laptop charger at 2.95in x 3.03in, the perfect size to pop in your laptop bag, or even your pocket. Powered by gallium nitride, the device is energy efficient and produces less heat than your regular charger.
The USB-C 130W GaN Charger comes equipped with two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports to relieve all your charging needs, powering up to four devices at once. Along with the charging block, buyers will receive two global adapter power plugs to make charging while you travel a breeze! The charger is available for pre-order for $179.99 to ship within 30 days.
Razer also announced the stunning Razer Raptor 27 gaming monitor. It features a 27in IPS display with QHD resolution, 95% DCI-P3 colour space, 165hz refresh rate, along with both Nvidia G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync. That’s not all, as this is the world’s first THX certified gaming monitor.
Top all of that off with forged aluminum, a 90 degree tilt, VESA mount compatibility, cable management and of course our favourite Razer Chroma RGB lighting. The Razer Raptor 27 looks like the next monitor to beat and can be pre-ordered for $799 starting now.
Finally, Razer announced the Razer Blade 14 ultimate AMD gaming laptop. Quoting Razer, this is “the most powerful 14″ gaming laptop,” with an AMD Ryzen 5900HX unlocked processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series GPU. It features up to 8GB of VRAM, and up to 100W TGP.
The laptop is custom calibrated with AMD FreeSync premium. The display comes in either FHD with a 144Hz refresh rate and 100% SRGB or QHD with a 165Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3. Users won’t lack ports as the Blade 14 features two Type-A (3.2 gen 2) ports, two Type-C (3.2 gen 2 charging-display) ports, and an HDMI 2.1 port.
Users on the go will be happy to know that the Razer Blade 14 comes equipped with WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and Windows Hello Camera. It should also be noted that the system comes with 1TB of PCIe SSD storage that is upgradeable if you feel you need more.
In addition to all the top-grade tech, the Razer Blade 14 also boasts an impressive 12 hours of battery life while still being the thinnest 14″ gaming laptop measuring in at just 16.8 mm. It is 30% than your average gaming laptop, making it an excellent choice for gaming on the go without sacrificing power.
The Razer Blade 14 starts at $1799 for the FHD model with an RTX 3060 GPU, $2199 for the QHD model with an RTX 3070 GPu and $2799 for the QHD model with an RTX 3080 GPU. You can find the laptop on the RazerStore or global retailers like Amazon.
And what else? Razer announced that they have FINALLY listened to their fans, and Project Hazel is becoming a reality. Using replaceable N95 grade filters and secure silicon face seals, the masks will be also be lab-tested and BFE rated.
Project Hazel will feature a transparent design, interior lighting (YES RGBS!), and anti-fog coating. Razer is sticking with their word to protect the environment with each reusable Project Hazel filter lasting 3x longer than disposable a mask. They also use 80% less material than disposable masks. The masks will be sold in “drops” with the first one coming early in Q4.
If you can’t wait that long, head over to Instagram and try the Project Hazel Filter. Don’t forget to tag @Razer!
That sums up this year’s E3 Razer Keynote. We can’t wait to get our hands on this tech, and are always excited to see what Razer comes up with next. Keep an eye out for the rest of our E3 coverage this weekend!
