Razer unveiled the latest Razer Blade 18 laptop with faster graphics and a 4K 200 Hz display for high-performance gaming.

“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,” said Travis Furst, head of notebook & accessories at Razer, in a statement. “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.”

It also has Thunderbolt 5 connectivity, which 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.

It features the Intel Core 14th Gen i9-14900HX, the world’s fastest mobile processor. With 24 cores and the ability to unlock overclocking through Razer Synapse, it offers processing power for the most intensive tasks, from demanding triple-A gaming to professional content creation.

It also has the world’s thinnest 18-inch Intel HX-Class System. At 21.99mm (~0.86 in) thick, the Blade 18 is a super-thin machine. Yet it can support up to GeForce RTX 4090 graphics and unlock up to 175 watt full TGP (Total Graphics Power), and it leverages Nvidia’s AI-powered DLSS 3 to deliver faster framerates and real-time ray tracing.

For even higher-refresh-rate gaming and up to 1K nits peak brightness, an alternative display option features QHD+ (2560×1600) resolution, 2K dimming zones with a new toggle on/off feature, and DCI-P3 100% color gamut.

It has an advanced cooling system, featuring the thinnest exhaust fins in its class, maximizes graphics power and maintains desktop-class performance in a thin design. The vapor chamber technology features a three-fan system, and Razer’s biggest chamber ever, to quickly and efficiently dissipate heat.

It has a 5MP webcam, a THX spatial audio 6-speaker array, upgradeable components, a comprehensive port selection, and the latest Wi-Fi 7 connectivity. And it includes a GaN charger (Up to 330W) which is up to 60% smaller than comparable silicon-based solutions.

Chassis design

The 2024 Razer Blade laptop family.

The Razer Blade chassis has an aluminum unibody design for durability and an anodized finish for increased resistance.

This generation, the Blade 14, Blade 16 and now the Blade 18 are all available in the signature black and mercury finishes at launch.

And it features Calman Verified displays across the entire lineup, ensuring every panel is expertly calibrated and provides a professional-grade experience out-of-the-box.

With Dynamic Lighting support now available for Windows 11, the Razer Chroma ecosystem lets users control their Razer Chroma RGB devices as well as participating third-party devices in one place with the Razer Chroma app for a more cohesive RGB experience.

These laptops also come with a month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, giving players access to hundreds of high-quality games on PC, console, and cloud.

The Razer Blade 18 (2024) sells for $3,100 on Razer.com, and it’s coming soon to RazerStores and authorized resellers.
