The Razer Blade Stealth Gets An Updated Look, More Gaming Power

CREDIT Razer

As a reminder the Stealth is Razer's 13.3-inch ultraportable and HEXUS reviewed the previous incarnation as recently as March this year, itself an 8 gen Intel refresh. Specifically, two of the three new SKUs feature a GeForce MX150 GPU.

For the first time ever, the Razer Blade Stealth is available with NVIDIA GeForce graphics for up to 4X performance improvement when gaming and editing graphic content. Razer included the more powerful 25W NVIDIA GeForce MX150 4GB GDDR5 graphics, double the memory of similar 13-inch systems.

The Razer Blade Stealth comes with a IR web camera that supports Windows Hello. It's a 4-core/8-thread processor like the Core i5-8250U found on the previous version (and also the Aspire E 15), but clocked significantly faster at the top-end with a 4.6GHz boost clock (1.8GHz base clock), compared to the Core i5-8250U's 3.4GHz boost clock (1.6GHz base clock). The new Razer Blade Stealth is now available with individually calibrated micro edge thin-bezel displays with up to 4K resolution, increased battery life of up to 13 hours, and available NVIDIA GeForce dedicated graphics.

On the outside, gone is the glowing Razer logo, replaced with a non-LED logo that blends into the lid.

Razer has redesigned the external looks of this laptop. It's apparently aiming for students and working professionals, essentially the MacBook Pro and Dell XPS crowd, who still want a bit of gaming juice. But, for the first time in the laptop's history, the new Blade Stealth sports the option of a discrete graphics chip from Nvidia, and yet Razer still promises a battery life of up to 13 hours.

Pricing starts at $1,399.99, more than double the cost of Acer's Aspire E 15, which goes for $579.99 on Amazon. If you are interested in the 4K touchscreen version you will have to fork out $1,899 but this also nets you a 512GB SSD upgrade (but likely a noticeable battery life reduction). All three are available now direct from Razer. The Base model price is $1,399 but the Graphics model is just $200 more for the GeForce MX150 4GB and comes with 16GB of RAM.

The anti-ghosting keyboard has been optimized to feel punchier and more responsive.

The device is also packed with a bunch of ports, including Thunderbolt, Type-C, Type-A, and a headphone jack.

As you can expect from a Razer laptop, it comes with a single-zone RGB lighting system with full key backlighting and 16.8 million color options all powered by Razer Chroma.

It does preserve its portitude relative to other ultraportables, with two USB-A ports and two USB-C connections, one of which supports Thunderbolt.

Sound quality has improved dramatically in the new Razer Blade Stealth. Razer has included four upward-firing speakers equipped with a Smart Amp to boost audio with greater clarity.

The new Razer Blade Stealth line starts at $1,400 MSRP and is available now from Razer.com and select retailers in the USA and Canada.
