Behold: the first Thunderbolt 5 port we’ve seen on an actual PC.

Razer put a Thunderbolt 5 port in its new Blade 18 laptop, which also now has a 4K 165Hz display. Here it is in the flesh at CES 2024 — admittedly in a dimly lit suite with nothing plugged in.

Don’t expect to charge-and-play with this port. The GPU alone can draw more than the current USB-C maximum of 240W. (See Razer’s beefy power socket on the left?) But do expect loads of bandwidth for monitors and peripherals.

Correction: Replaced image with an accurate one from Intel's booth. Razer originally told us the left USB-C port was TBT5 as well.
