For any gamer on the move, two things are vitally important: performance and portability. Many gaming laptops excel in one area or the other, but the Razer Blade 16, powered by a 13th Gen Intel Core processor as standard, totally nails both aspects. 

Which is no surprise, given the fact the 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13950HX – Intel's latest and highest class of mobile CPU – delivers an impressive 5.5MHz and 24 cores, while also being well-equipped for CPU overclocking. Better still, the Razer Blade 16 complements all of this with NVIDIA GeForce graphics courtesy of the RTX 40 series. Be it an RTX 4060, 4070, 4080 or 4090, the Razer Blade 16 will make your games shine, packing more graphic power per cubic inch than any other 16" gaming laptop on the market right now. 

In practice, this not only means 13th Gen Intel Core processors are more capable than anything that's come before, but that they can also effortlessly maintain high-FPS gaming while running multiple resource-hungry apps. More cores and higher clock speeds are just the tip of the iceberg too because Intel's latest in Hybrid Architecture promises heightened performance, which, alongside its 13th Gen Intel Core processors, prevents background tasks from interrupting gaming sessions while maintaining smooth gameplay throughout. 

So, when all over this comes together in the Razer Blade 16, you'll harness the power of a Core i9-13950HX CPU and GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, Intel's Hybrid Architecture with dual performance and efficiency cores – eight performance cores, 16 efficiency cores, and 32 processing threads – as well as an impressive 32GB of RAM and 2TB SSD.

Moreover, the Razer Blade 16 boasts the world's first dual-mode mini-LED display which offers over 1,000 points of dimming control across its 16:10 aspect ratio screen. This means you can easily switch between UHD+ 120Hz and FHD+ 240Hz with a 16:10 native resolution display. The 4K quality and clarity of the UHD+ 120Hz mode are positioned to give content creators a visual boost; while the FHD+ 240Hz mode ensures a super-fast refresh rate designed to provide the smoothest gaming experiences possible.

With portability in mind, as well as being roughly the same size as the Razer Blade 15 (meaning there's no need to upgrade your travel bag), the laptop's gallium nitride (GaN) charging brick is around 60% smaller than most other gaming laptops. 

Combining lightweight materials with a durable design, the Razer Blade 16 is CNC-milled from a single aluminium block allowing the chassis to achieve an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Combine this with a sleek, anodised matte black finish, and you're looking at one of the smoothest, most scratch-resistant surfaces going on any gaming laptop today. All of which means the Razer Blade 16 comes with a bigger screen, but the same footprint as its immediate predecessor – making it perfect for pick up and play sessions on the move. 

And with a 95Whr battery, there's no compromises made to gaming sessions on the road, making the Razer Blade 16, with its 13th Gen Intel Core processor, a machine that perfectly balances gaming performance and portability. Check out the Razer Blade 16 here.
