If you are looking for a 13-inch ultrabook gaming laptop, check out more details about the new Razer Blade Stealth (2020) below.
13-inch Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook Gaming Laptop – What’s New?
Razer’s new Blade Stealth 13 gaming laptop is now powered with Intel’s latest 10th gen Core i7-1065G7 quad-core CPU with Hyper Threading, and a TDP of only 25W. The Core i7-1065G7 has a base clock speed of 1.3GHz with a turbo boost clock speed of 3.9GHz. The CPU is paired with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 Ti 4GB GDDR6 Max-Q GPU and a fast 16GB DDR4X 3733MHz dual-channel system memory.
There are basically two variants of the new Razer Blade Stealth 13. The cheaper model has a full HD 1920×1080 resolution with a fast 120Hz refresh rate display. Meanwhile the more expensive one has a 4K UHD 3840×2160 resolution touchscreen display. Both display features slim side bezels, individually factory calibrated and covers 100% sRGB.
For gaming purposes, the GTX 1650 Ti is simply not enough to play games at 4K UHD. You will need to use a more powerful external GPU to play games at 4K; or you will have to drop the game resolution to 1920×1080. Actually, depending on the game or how graphics intensive the game is, the GTX 1650 Ti may not be able to take full advantage of the 120Hz display. It’s either you’ll have to tone down the graphics quality for graphics intensive games; or play “easy-to-drive” games, like eSports titles.
Outside of gaming, a 120Hz high refresh rate display also offers a “smoother” desktop operation and experience. 120Hz is simply better than a 60Hz display. The 4K resolution offers a sharper display, more “room” in a 13-inch screen; and may prove useful for graphics and visual designers/editors and other productivity-kind of work.
As for connectivity options, the 2020 Razer Blade Stealth 13 features Intel AX201 Wi-Fi 6 with Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connectivity. There are also two Type-A USB 3.1 Gen1, a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C, a USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 and a headphone/mic combo. This ultrabook gaming laptop is powered by a 53.1Wh battery.
