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.


Display
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.

Mobility
The Razer Blade Stealth has been redesigned and delivers increased performance in a compact chassis with up to 13 hours of battery life. The unibody frame is fortified using precision CNC-machining of high-grade aluminum, and its matte black color is anodized deeper into the aluminum 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 optimized 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.

Power
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 maximize 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.

Full Connectivity
The anti-ghosting keyboard has been optimized to feel punchier and more responsive. It now utilizes a single-zone RGB lighting system with full key backlighting and 16.8 million color options all powered by Razer Chroma and customizable through Razer Synapse 3 software. For pin point accuracy, Razer also improved the touchpad with a larger glass surface area and Microsoft Precision support.

Connectivity options include Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, two USB-A, and a 3.5mm audio combo port. The included Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C ) port features 4 lanes of PCIe for up to 40 Gbps of blazing fast transfer speeds.

A seamless connection from the Thunderbolt 3 port to Razer Core external desktop graphics enclosures boosts the performance by connecting to desktop graphics cards. The Razer Core is compatible with the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX, NVIDIA Quadro or AMD XConnect enabled Radeon and Radeon Pro cards for high end gaming and content creation.

Sound quality has improved dramatically in the new Razer Blade Stealth. The speaker count has doubled to four upward-firing speakers equipped with a Smart Amp to boost audio with greater clarity. Dolby Atmos replicates sound in a 3-dimensional space for lifelike immersion.

Availability
The new line of Razer Blade Stealth laptops will start at $1,399 MSRP and will be available starting today from Razer.com and select retailers in the United States and Canada and coming soon to the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Nordics, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.

I'm glad to see someone ditch the wedge shape to fit more hardware and better cooling into a small chassis like this without sacrificing battery capacity. Cooling 40W in a chassis that small is no small feat. The weight is perfectly acceptable too. Quite impressive.

My biggest complaint about the stealth has been, for years, the lack of GPU power. What is the point of paying extra for a razer system if they are no better at gaming on their own then a dell inspiron at bestbuy. I always wondered why they didnt use the 28 watt intel chips with iris GPUs, they are chipset and socket compatible.

The MX150 is an interesting step. It's far more powerful then an iris 640, but cooling that much hardware in a thin and light 13" laptop (that apes the 11.6" form factor) will be an interesting challenge. I cant wait for reviews, I'd be super interested in one of these assuming the price and battery life are both acceptable.

There you go all the mistakes in their glory. I fixed a good deal still missed some.

The only benefit here is at least unlike Thermaltake and others with PDFs, I don't have to deal with every word being either double spaced or with multiple words run together.
It's ok, I love me a trusted module platform. :laugh:

I was a newsposter, once. I feel your pain. Sometimes you get credit for the typos and engrish when it isn't due... comes with the turf.

Worst part is a read through the damn thing twice, but seeing the same specs day in day out you just kinda gloss over it. You see it your brain knows what it should be and you just plain miss it. Fail on my part though. Should have caught it. But since its basically just another thin and light with an Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU there really isn't much to garner my attention. But thats no excuse, still, just goes to show that I need to be paying a bit more attention since multi-million dollar companies still botch Press releases on a regular basis lol.

I let a friend over at Razer know, as this is really pathetic.

Edit: They've fixed the press release now.

Neil De Grasse Tyson says something like quantum mechanics is the existence of two different places at same time, but you can't measure it, and happens in coldest temp possible in the cosmos. not sure i understand it either, but Dr. Tyson apparently does.

I think the most interesting thing here is the form factor. The blade stealth is the size of a thin dell latitude 12" laptop. that is awfully small for a 13.3" display with a dedicated nvidia GPU. To my knowledge there are no other laptops with dimensions this small with a dedicated GPU on the market.

Basically they thermal throttle it a lot. Check out the Zenbook line from Asus, they have a fantastic little model that has the 150. I actually had to get one for travel and I can confirm it does throttle a bit. You can't even select a "High Performance" option in the power settings. I tried forcefully adding one and it still wouldn't allow it. These ultra light/portable gamer machines run a very tight thermal and power limit.

That Razer has better specs but still in that size, expect throttling. Unless Razer does something else to allow better temps. Might be worth it to see a take apart of it and compare it with that Zenbook. See if the $600 premium with Razer is worth it.

They have done something: ditched the wedge profile, and gone back to a (far more space efficient) "boxy" design. Should allow them to squeeze more stuff towards the front of the case (battery in particular) and thus fit some bigger heatsinks at the back.
