Razer Redefines the Ultraportable with the new Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook
Melbourne, Australia – Razer™, the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, announced today the release of their redesigned 13-inch ultraportable laptop line consisting of three new configurations. 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.
The new Micro Edge 4.9mm thin side bezels are over 60% thinner than the previous version for a visually stunning edge-to-edge picture. For retina-shattering clarity, the Razer Blade Stealth is available in a 13.3” 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution with touch functionality and supports 100% sRGB color space. Each laptop display is now individually custom calibrated for amazing color accuracy out-of-the-box.
The display is also available in a Full HD matte (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution that enhances gaming with full-frame fluid motion graphics. The Full HD display provides 100% sRGB color space for vivid colors, and improved power efficiency for longer battery life.
For additional security and convenience, the Razer Blade Stealth comes with a IR web camera that supports Windows Hello, a first for the Razer Blade family. Razer also retained the ideal web camera placement at the top of the screen to avoid awkward shots.
The Razer Blade Stealth has been redesigned and delivers increased performance in a compact chassis with up to 13 hours of battery life. The uni-body frame is fortified using precision CNC-machining of high-grade aluminium, and its matte black colour is anodised deeper into the aluminium at a sub-molecular level for maximum durability.
Despite packing more power than previous models, the new Razer Blade Stealth has a more compact surface area with the micro edge thin display bezels. Emblazoned on the back is a subtle black tone-on-tone Razer logo that will both blend in and stand out.
All configurations include a built-in 53.1Wh battery that has been optimised for all day mobility. Additionally, the laptop can be charged almost anywhere with the compact 65W USB-C charger that works on most flights with AC power available.
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.
All models are also equipped with Intel® UHD Graphics 620, while dedicated graphics models leverage NVIDIA® Optimus technology to dynamically switch between the integrated and dedicated graphics to provide maximum performance and battery life when users need it.
Razer advanced thermal system and new power management options have been integrated into Razer Synapse 3 software to maximise battery life, quiet fans in a meeting, or provide full power when gaming.
“The Blade Stealth has excelled at being the best productivity laptop on the market” says Razer’s Co-Founder and CEO, Min-Liang Tan. “We pushed the boundaries further by incorporating NVIDIA graphics with up to four times the graphics performance while continuing to keep the system incredibly compact and thin. The results of our efforts have lead Razer to create one of the world’s most powerful ultraportable laptops ever.”
All configurations of the Razer Blade Stealth feature the new Whisky Lake 8th Gen Intel® Core ™ i7-8565U processor. The new quad-core processor outperforms its predecessor in throughput and responsiveness with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.6 GHz. The base model of the Razer Blade Stealth comes with 8GB of 2133MHz dual-channel memory while dedicated graphics models are loaded with 16GB of 2133MHz dual-channel memory for power users.
