Last year, some gamers and critics found Razer‘s 13-inch Ultrabook offering slightly lacklustre when it came to performance, so taking those cues, the gaming hardware company has now revamped its Razer Blade Stealth for a late 2019 release equipped with a range of impressive upgrades.
The biggest changes are its CPU and GPU. Now powered by a 10th-generation Ice Lake quad-core i7 processor, Razer has swapped out the previous Nvidia GeForce MX150 with a GTX 1650 for superior graphics, all working together with an increased RAM of 16GB. The 13-inch factory-calibrated displays have been retained, available in 1080p or 4K resolutions, with the latter also being a touchscreen. Storage comes in the form of a 512GB SSD hard drive, with the battery life lasting up to 10 hours. Most impressively, all these upgrades have been packed into a super-thin Ultrabook measuring only 0.6 inches thick and and weighing just 3.13 pounds.
For those interested, the new late-2019 edition of the Razer Blade Stealth will be available in three colors — black, white, and pink — some time in September, starting at $1,500 USD.
