The Blade 14 has been updated with Ryzen 6000 APUs and a rather stiff price increase. The range runs 3060, 3070 Ti, and 3080 Ti with pricing of $1999, $2599, and $3499, respectively. Screens remain the same at 1080p for the 3060 and 1440p for the rest. While it one-ups the Asus G14 with an HDMI 2.1 port, neither laptop makes use of full-speed USB 4.0. Pre-orders are open now with shipping set for March 17.

Been using a mid-range Blade 14 for about six weeks and have been quite happy with it. The difference in portability is noticeable even when compared to a 15-inch Razer laptop. The 16 GB of soldered RAM hasn't been a hindrance thus far. It runs surprisingly cool and quiet, too. The one thing that I really don't like is the USB-C ports seem to always be connected to the integrated Radeon graphics. Jarrod's review said they would connect to the NVIDIA graphics with the MUX switch set to dedicated GPU mode, but this hasn't been the case. Razer released an EC update that mentions "Improved stability for USB-C port" and I wonder if that didn't mess it up. I never tested on the old EC, and there's no way to downgrade.
