Razer Upgrades Blade 14 Gaming Laptops to USB 4 via a Software Update

Razer has announced a new update for its latest 2022 Razer Blade 14 notebooks that will upgrade the systems to USB4 connectivity – without requiring new hardware. The update will come in the unexpected form of a software update, which will upgrade the Blade 14’s dual Type-C USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports to USB 4. In addition, the update will give the notebooks 40Gbps of bandwidth to play with.

Upgrading the USB ports on a laptop with a software update is not something you see every day. Unfortunately, Razer hasn’t shared details on how it could upgrade the 2022 Blade 14 to USB 4 with software alone. However, DIY laptop manufacturer Framework recently issued a very similar upgrade for its 12th-Gen models.
