Razer's Blade Stealth 13 is getting a big upgrade this week with respect to its graphics subsystem. Razer is labeling the new Blade Stealth 13 as the world first's gaming ultrabook, which now features a GeForce GTX 1650 discrete GPU with NVIDIA Optimus technology.
The previous version of the notebook was available with a relatively puny GeForce MX150 GPU, but the inclusion of the Turing-based GeForce GTX 1650 gives it some much needed graphics muscle. In addition to the graphics upgrade, the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is also rocking Intel's latest 10th generation "Ice Lake" Core processors. In this case, you'll find the quad-core 10nm Core i7-1065G7 processor (25W) with a base clock of 1.3GHz and a boost clock of 3.9GHz.
Other hardware specs include 16GB of LPDDR4 RAM and up to a 512GB PCIe SSD. On the display front, you can opt for either a wholly adequate 13.3-inch Full HD panel (matte finish) or a stunning 4K UHD panel -- both have 100 percent sRGB color space coverage.
The Razer Blade Stealth 13 weighs in at just 3.13 pounds in Full HD trim, which is quite amazing for a gaming laptop. The 4K UHD option ups the weight slightly to 3.26 pounds. Whichever option you choose, you'll get a black CNC milled aluminum unibody that is a mere 15.3mm thick. The 53.1 WHr battery is rated at up to 10 hours, and you'll find support for the latest wireless standards: Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
“Razer is constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, by designing laptops that utilize the most powerful components in the smallest chassis” says Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Systems Division. “We did it with our original Razer Blade, which led the trend of slim gaming systems, and now we’re doing it again with our Blade Stealth, pioneering a new market for powerful, small-footprint laptops.”
Both versions of the Razer Blade Stealth 13 will be available later this month priced at $1,799 and $1,999 respectively for the Full HD and 4K UHD models.
