Intel is rumoured to be working on making a new Razer Blade laptop, but one with less conventional measurements. Specifically, rumours hint at the possibility of an 18-inch Blade laptop from the brand, aptly called the Blade 18, and powered by a still largely unannounced Intel Core i9 CPU.
Evidence of this alleged Blade 18 laptop first appeared on none other than the benchmark repository, Geekbench, where the machine is listed by its namesake, along with the model number “RZ09-0484”. From the looks of it, it also appears that is going to be an Intel-based machine, and one powered by a 13th generation Core i9-13900HX, no less.

The significance of the 13900HX in the supposed Blade 18 is significant for a couple of reasons. Firstly, while its designation is par for the course with Intel’s naming convention for its products, the mobile processor itself still hasn’t been officially announced. Secondly, if the CPU is the real deal, then we can definitely expect it to be overclockable.
Circling back, the 13900HX that resides within this Blade 18 laptop is also listed as having 24-cores and 32-threads, which is higher than even the current flagship Intel mobile flagship CPU, the Core i9-12900HK, which has 14-cores, 20-threads. Additionally, its base and boost clock is listed as 1.9GHz and 3.89GHz, respectively, although this is likely to change closer to its still unknown launch date.
Other details of the Blade 18 shows that the laptop is also paired with 32GB of RAM, presumably DDR5 SODIMMs. It’s speed and frequency is not listed, unfortunately. In terms of performance, the 13900HX is shown to score 2063 points on the single-core test and 20164 points on the multi-core test.
And that’s it. Beyond the breakdown of the Blade 18’s performance in both single-core and multi-core, the product information page doesn’t actually contain any further information about it. However, given its namesake, it can be speculated that the “18” could be in reference to an 18-inch display panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio, which in turn may be pointing to a taller screen being installed, in the same way other laptop brands have been doing with their own machines.
