Razer is upgrading its Razer Blade Stealth 13 ultrabook gaming laptop today with new Nvidia graphics and Intel processors. With this machine, you could play games as well as do office work while you’re hunkered down in quarantine or sheltering-in-place.
The new version of the laptop is a skinny computer with a 13.3-inch 120Hz display, powered by the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics processing unit (GPU) and a faster 25-watt variant of the Intel Core i7-1065G7 microprocessor. That means that it’s a tiny machine that packs a wallop.
The Blade Stealth 13 also packs a faster, more efficient keyboard and more efficient LPDDR4X memory, all within a matte black aluminum chassis, said Razer systems marketing manager Eugene Kuo in an interview with GamesBeat.
He said the 120Hz refresh rate makes the laptop what Razer claims is the world’s-fastest 13.3-inch display, which means it’s good for gamers.
Razer claims the increased refresh rate delivers fast but crisp visuals, making targets easier to see and text easier to read, in case you’re trying to play games or do work at (or both at the same time). The display offers a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution and is finished with a matte coating for improved glare reduction.
The Blade Stealth 13 is also available with a 4K touch display featuring Gorilla Glass. The 4K panel is aimed at those editing photos and video in creative suites or watching movies on the go.
The Blade Stealth 13 covers 100% of the sRGB space and comes custom-calibrated from the factory to ensure a color-accurate experience.
Flanking the sides of the display are ultra-slim 4.9-millimeter bezels with an HD webcam with an IR sensor for seamless access via Windows Hello. The HD webcam is important these days for staying connected with family, taking meetings from the home office, or hosting classes over long distances.
