Razer Blade 16 and 18 come in a stylish Mercury Edition
When it comes to PC gaming, gamer fans can’t ignore Razer. The US expert for uncompromising gaming fun on computers and notebooks is now celebrating the success of the Razer Blade 16 and Razer Blade 18. The manufacturer uses the great sales figures as an opportunity to launch a special edition of both laptops. The so-called Mercury Edition should turn many a gaming area into a real eye-catcher.
Razer Blade 16 and 18 get a new coat of paint
The gaming world rejoiced when Razer launched the latest version of its two popular notebooks for fans of high-end gaming in stores this February. And the sales figures have made it clear that the US gaming experts have done quite a bit right. With the Mercury Edition, the manufacturer has now given its two notebooks a completely new look. Anodized aluminum is used here and refined with a mercury-look finish. However, despite the chic look, it will still be the uncompromising hardware that is of interest to most. Again, you get a powerful graphics card with the GeForce RTX 4080 from Nvidia.
The handy dual-mode mini-LED panel ensures that the content calculated by the GPU is also conjured up on the screen in a manner befitting its status. The dual-mode technology allows seamless switching between two native resolutions and refresh rates. Thus, you can adjust the screen’s performance to the current gaming situation at any time. Every millisecond counts and you always want to be faster than your opponents in multiplayer? Then you should opt for FHD+ and 240 Hz. If, on the other hand, you want to enjoy the atmosphere of a single-player title, you can alternatively opt for the mode with UHD+ and 120 Hz.

Even more power in the Razer Blade 18
As experience shows, the performance of gaming laptops increases with the size of the screen. This is also the case with the Razer Blade 18 in the Mercury Edition. Thus, it is also possible to equip the notebook with a GeForce RTX 4090. Razer does not call its large laptop a desktop replacement without reason. The QHD+ resolution display offers 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. This good color space coverage also predestines it as a suitable notebook for power users who not only want to gamble, but also focus on image or video editing.
Prices and availability
The two notebooks are available now. The Razer Blade 16 Mercury Edition carries an MSRP of $4,399.99. Those interested in the Razer Blade 18 Mercury Edition, on the other hand, will have to pay a price starting at 4,399.99 Euros. Accessories in the right design are also available to match the two notebooks. For example, Razer offers a Thunderbolt 4 dock, a USB-C charger with 130 watts of power, and a laptop stand.
