One of them is this year’s Razer Blade 14, which is powered by an eight-core, 16-thread Ryzen 9 7940HS and mobile RTX 4070 from NVIDIA. add some interesting features.

Since this is a PCIe 4.0 based system, the M-2 port runs on an M.2 NVMe slot attached to the CPU running at Gen 4 x4 as well as the GPU. DDR5 is supported, in dual channel mode. The 3D Guru would like to see an X3D part in a laptop soon, but that seems likely to be a long way off. The review is available here.
