According to Razer CEO, by 2022, gaming laptop costs would have "dramatic increases"

Razer is a premium brand with most of its gaming laptops at or above the $2,000 mark, so the prospect of them moving even higher is daunting for anyone in the market for a high-end gaming laptop. While the biggest price bump may come for the highest spec flagship models, this could trickle down to cheap gaming laptops as well. Whether that’s in the form of a similar price hike or sticking to older components longer in order to hold the line on pricing as much as possible.

Over the last year, the chip scarcity has had an influence on every technological product. Those anticipating that 2022 would be the tipping point would be disappointed, as it appears that this will not be the case. According to the gaming website VideoCardz, Razer’s CEO, Min-Liang Tan, recently tweeted that “substantial hikes in component pricing” will result in price rises for all of the company’s gaming laptops next year (via PCWorld). While he doesn’t go beyond Razer, stating merely that “next gen gaming laptops across the board (including the Razer Blade)” will be affected, it’s difficult to believe that this issue won’t affect the whole gaming laptop industry.

With just over a month to go before companies are ready to unveil their latest and greatest laptops at CES 2022, we’ll just have to wait and see how much gaming laptop fans are going to need to save up for their next upgrade.
