The Razer Blade 18 (RZ09-0484), a forthcoming gaming laptop, is unreleased and features an unreleased 13th Gen Intel Core CPU. This laptop is the 18-inch successor of the Razer Blade 17 laptop series, which is currently the most powerful in the company’s lineup.
The first evidence of the Blade 18 laptop was found on Geekbench’s benchmark repository. The machine is identified by its name and the model number “RZ09-0484”. It appears to be an Intel-based machine with a Core i9-13900HX 13th-generation processor.

There are two reasons why the significance of the 13900HX being in the Blade 18 is essential. First, it is consistent with Intel’s naming conventions for its products. However, the name of the mobile processor has yet to be officially announced. We can expect the CPU to be super-clocked if the CPU is genuinely the best.
The 13900HX, found within the Blade 18, also has 24-cores and 32 threads. This is more than the Core i9-12900HK mobile flagship Intel CPU which has only 14-cores and 20 threads. Its base and boost clock is listed at 1.9GHz and 3.89GHz, respectively, though this could change closer to the launch date.
According to Geekbench data, Core i9-13900HX has 24-cores and 32 threads. This is the same configuration as Core i9-13900K. According to the detailed result data, this Raptor Lake CPU will increase up to 5.4GHz.
The Blade 18 also shows that it has 32GB RAM. This is likely DDR5 SODIMMs. Unfortunately, it needs to be listed as to its speed or frequency. The 13900HX scored 2063 points in the single-core and 20164 on the multicore tests.
That’s all. The product information page does not contain additional information beyond the Blade 18’s single-core and multicore performance. The 18 could refer to an 18-inch display panel having a 16/10 aspect ratio. This would indicate that a taller screen was installed in line with other laptop brands.
