Razer has announced its new Razer Blade Stealth 13, suggesting it's the world's fastest 13-inch gaming Ultrabook. In a confident statement, Senior Vice President of Razer's Systems Business Unit, Brad Wildes, explained, 'the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is the world's most powerful Ultrabook and we just made it better.' He may have a point. Read more to find out more.
The new ultrabook is powered by a faster and more efficient 25W variant of the Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor. It is also supported by 16GB of LPDDR4X memory, 512GB SSD, and offers an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU with 4GB of GDDR6 memory and 1,024 CUDA cores. Razer reckons it offers an up to 80 percent increase in performance over the GeForce GTX 1050, a more realistic expectation will probably be around 50% to 60% but that is still quite a good improvement than before.
The Intel Core i7-1065G7H CPU provides clock speeds of up to 3.9 GHz when in boost mode with the tweaked 25W variant meaning it can sustain longer boost clock speeds than the usual CPU. It is also cooler by nature, thus allowing the ultrabook to perform longer without throttling.
There is also a tiny 13.3-inch display which you don't always see on a gaming laptop but the 120ghz display helps alot. There is also 1920x1080p resolution and matte coating to reduce glare. This should make the screen rather suitable to game despite it's smaller than usual display. Oh, and there's an option to upgrade to a 4K touch display too if that sounds more appealing.
Port wise, the Blade Stealth 13 throws in a USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port which Razer is quick to point out pairs nicely with a Razer Core X eGPU if you want even more graphic card power. There's also a new and shinier keyboard with a full-sized right shift key and half-height directional keys, along with Razer Chroma RGB backlighting.
No word on the battery life yet. We're guessing this is a portable beast with decent battery life for normal usage but for gaming usage, there is still a need for the laptop charger. Still, despite all that power, the Blade Stealth 13 sticks to its compact dimension of being small and light. Predictably then, this isn't a cheap laptop by any means. Prices start at SGD$2999 and is available for booking now at Razer.
