Razer Blade 14’s Performance
Blade 14 generally lacks the performance of M15 R4, however, it outperforms G14 in the vast majority of cases. As a result, the M15 R4 seems to have a lot more power than the G14, which is an outdated model.
In general, the results are promising. While playing games at 1080p and QHD resolutions, the Blade 14 delivered 60 FPS or more.
In Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition, I got the lowest frame rate (70), and the highest was in Doom Eternal (120) with the recommended settings. My frame rate never dipped below 60 fps due to the smooth gameplay and the graphics settings.
Razer Blade 14 will reach 118 degrees Fahrenheit while gaming. However, you should be fine if the temperature is under 95 degrees. Also, if you are playing while sitting at a desk, you should be fine as long as you have the right temperature.
Razer Blade 14’s Design
A Razer logo illuminates the lid of the device. Black metal makes up the chassis of the Razer Blade 14. The keyboard inside contains speakers and RGB lighting. Vents located in this way operate relatively quietly.
The Blade 14 is also extremely durable in addition to being small and light. Various measurements were taken to determine its size and weight. It measures 12.6 x 8.7 x 0.7 inches and weighs 3.9 pounds. Taking it around a convention center or an airport isn’t going to weigh you down much after carrying it for several hours, so you can toss it comfortably in any backpack or messenger bag.
The port count, however, is relatively low. To the left, there is an audio jack and a USB Type-C port. You will find the power port to the left as well. On the right, you’ll find ports for USB-A, USB-C, and HDMI.
The Blade 14 lacks Thunderbolt support, which is a disappointment. It offers multiple USB-C ports, but none support Thunderbolt.
Razer Blade 14’s Display
Razer Blade 14 is available in 144Hz or 165Hz full HD or QHD models. We tested some games on the Blade 14 that approached 165 frames per second due to its powerful CPU and GPU.
The difference is real if you haven’t played at 120 fps. While gaming, the colors on the screen appear somewhat saturated, which is pleasant on the one hand, and very annoying on the other. Aside from the standard Windows calibration, there are no color settings you can tweak.
Zephyrus G15’s Performance
The Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 just edges out AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS and NVIDIA RTX 3070 in combined graphics and CPU performance tests.
In terms of performance, ROG Zephyrus G15 outperforms its cheaper cousin Asus TUF Dash F15 by almost 20%. Neither model is equipped with a Ryzen 9 1000 processor, but both models run an RTX 3070 GPU.
Zephyrus G15’s Design
It is exquisitely designed, as is its sibling, and ASUS went the extra mile when it was not required.
The elegant Moonlight White color is complemented by a metal lid with tantalizing microdots. In some models, Asus uses an AniMe Matrix display, except that instead of the plain dark dots used in the prior model, the dots are filled with a prismatic film, which glows like an amazing rainbow when the lid is opened.
Zephyrus G15 Display
In addition to its 15.6-inch screen and 2560 x 1440 resolution, the Zephyrus G15 boasts a 165Hz refresh rate, which makes the screen more clear and grants the screen a smoother operation than its 14-inch counterpart. While specs have improved, colors and brightness have not.
Game laptopsâ€™ color gamut coverage is 91.7% on average, but Zephyrus G15 falls short on 76.8%.
Compared to the category average (349 nits), Zephyrus G15’s brightness is rather low at 286 nits. It was however brighter (316 nits) than the Alienware M17 R4 (316 nits) but inferior to the MSI GS66 Stealth (272).
So, Who’s the Winner?
I personally would go with the ASUS Zephyrus G15 as it packs more features compared to the Razer Blade 14 which seems just “meh”. However, you might get a better build quality with Razer as they’re usually more focused on that aspect as well.
Nevertheless, both are exceptional gaming laptops. You wouldn’t go wrong with either of these two, but I just shared my preference, which would be the ASUS Zephyrus G15.
