The Razer Blade 14 (2023) offers a slightly larger battery, a more advanced main processor, and a stronger GPU, which combine to provide enhanced performance for 3D rendering, machine learning, and engineering applications compared to the older Razer Blade 14. However, it is slightly thicker and heavier, which may affect portability. Both models are similarly priced and come with the same amount of storage and RAM, but the Razer Blade 14 (2023) also boasts a higher screen resolution and a better maximum refresh rate, making it more suitable for intensive gaming and tasks that benefit from a crisper, more fluid display.

Allen Ngo | May 2022
"After making a huge splash with the original 2021 model, it's expected that the 2022 refresh would be more of a minor update to an already impressive machine. It adds a higher resolution webcam (720p to 1080p), faster CPU (Ryzen 9 5900HX to Ryzen 9 6900HX), faster GPU (RTX 3070/3080 to 3070/3080 Ti), faster RAM (DDR4-3200 to DDR5-4800), faster M.2 SSD support (PCIe3 x4 to PCIe4 x4), newer WLAN module (Killer AX1690i to Qualcomm WCN685x), and a MUX switch for the new integrated Radeon 680M GPU. It's indubitably an upgrade especially in terms of single-thread processor performance."
