Razer unveiled its 2020 Blade Stealth 13. The refresh comes with the same Intel quad-core processor as last year’s model, but the notebook traded up the GPU slightly to a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti. The new gaming laptop also has a 13.3-inch 120Hz 1080p display.
Along with the 120Hz 1080p display, Razer also offers a 4K touch display with Gorilla Glass. That model is aimed more at content creation pros, but both displays cover 100 percent of the sRGB space and are calibrated from the factory to deliver accurate colors.
The design remains unchanged, with tiny 4.9 mm bezels, USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type C Thunderbolt port and a headphone jack. As before, it can be paired with a Razer Core X eGPU equipped with any GPU for greater gaming speeds. The weight has increased a bit to 3.1 pounds, but it’s still tiny for a laptop with such powerful specs.
The rest of the specs remain unchanged 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD, 16GB dual-channel LPDDR4 3733MHz RAM, and a 53.1Wh battery. It is a bit heavier this year, weighing 3.1 pounds versus the 2.5-pound 2019 model, but has about the same footprint (15.3mm x 304.6mm x 210mm).
The Blade Stealth 13 is still pretty expensive at $1,800, especially considering that you can get the more powerful Blade 15 for just a couple hundred dollars more with a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU.
The Blade Stealth 13 is available starting today in the US and Canada. For other regions, the company just said it is “coming soon.” Customers can check out Razer’s product page for comparing alternate configurations and pricing.
