At the RazerCon 2020 event, the company announced its refreshed Blade Stealth laptop.
Razer Blade Stealth 13 gets Tiger Lake CPU
The Blade Stealth is a 13.3-inch ultrabook for gamers. A 2020 refresh is basically limited to the CPU. An upgraded model features 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake processors. It’s not a full replacement, because 10th Gen Ice Lake Stealth models will still be available for sale.
There are no visual changes to the ultra-thin CNC machined black aluminum body and the laptop still offers the same type of connectors (2x USB Type-C, 2 USB Type-A, and a headphone jack).
The Stealth 13 2020 comes with a Core i7-1165G7 processor, which is based on Intel’s new 10nm Super Fin architecture. On paper, we are getting the same CPU configuration with 4 cores and 8 threads, but thanks to architectural improvements the newer model boosts up to 800 MHz higher (to 4.7 GHz) compared to the predecessor.
Razer Blade 13 2020 ultra-portable laptop features a 13.3-inch 120Hz Full-HD panel. The 4K OLED (with optional touch support) is only available with Ice Lake CPU (last generation). The 2020 model will still be offered with an OLED option, but it will not have a 4K resolution. The screens on a newer model are individually calibrated and they feature 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage out of the box.
Razer has set the pricing for new modes to 1800 USD for the 120Hz Full-HD option and 2000 USD for the OLED 60Hz Touch model. Both options are available with the same discrete graphics card GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, soldered 16GB DDR4 RAM, and 512GB SSD. The laptop is not in stock at this moment, but according to Razer, it should be coming to select retailers later in the fall.
