With Razer’s new update for the Blade 14 2022 laptop, the speed of data transfer through the USB port of this device will be significantly improved; This is while improving hardware features usually requires physical changes, but Razer has managed to achieve this by releasing a simple software update.
While Razer’s website has introduced the Blade 14 2022 model with two USB C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, both of these ports will be converted to USB 4 with the installation of the new update, and thus the data transfer speed through these ports will increase to 40 Gbps, which It will be four times more than before. This feature will be especially useful for people who use multiple 4K monitors at the same time and also for transferring information on the fastest SSDs on the market.
Achieving such a huge improvement by downloading software seems impossible, but that’s not the case with Razer. Digital Trends It notes that the Blade 14 2022 was introduced in July in a new pink color option with support for USB 4, and it seems that this laptop comes with the USB 4 standard by default, but so far the ability to use the capacities of this port has not been enabled on it.
Microsoft’s Pluto security processor is also surprisingly built into the Razer Blade 14 and will be activated with the aforementioned software update. This chip is designed to improve security against processor attacks such as Specter and Meltdown; Dangerous attacks that are very difficult to stop using other methods.
It is rare that the hardware specifications of devices change after software updates, and thus Razer has achieved considerable success in this field. Pluto’s security and USB 4 compatibility come as unexpected bonuses, eight months after the 2022 Blade 14 hits the market. It is worth mentioning that all models of this laptop with all configurations will receive the mentioned update.
