Razer Blade Stealth 13 specs
Razer’s announcement tells us that the latest Blade Stealth 13 utilises an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650Ti GPU with 4GBs of GDDR6 memory to maximise performance whilst gaming. According to Razer, this GPU will provide the Blade Stealth 13 with, “up to an 80% increase in performance over the GeForce GTX 1050.”
Alongside the Blade Stealth 13’s GPU will be an Intel Core I7-1065G7 quad-core processor with clock speeds of 3.9GHz. These speeds will be achieved when the processor uses Intel Turbo Boost technology; something much more easily sustained with the Razer Blade Stealth 13’s 25W variant of the processor.
When comparing the Ultrabook™’s 25W variant to the standard 15W processor, Razer stated that, “increased power combined with the longer sustained boost speed means higher frames, faster renders, and less downtime.”
In terms of RAM, the Blade Stealth 13’s existing 16GB of LPDDRX memory has received a frequency increase to 3733MHz which, according to Razer, “means that CPU intensive applications, whether gaming or creating, will receive noticeable performance gains.”
Finally, the Razer Blade Stealth 13 will come equipped with a 1920x1080p, 120Hz refresh rate display that, “delivers fast but crisp visuals, making targets easier to see and text easier to read.” For creators and those willing to spend extra, a 4K touch panel strengthened by Gorilla® Glass will be available at a premium.
