Razer Blade Stealth 2020: First 13.3 inch laptop with 120 Hz screen
Razer continues its "Gaming Ultrabook" project. The newest version of the Razer Blade Stealth builds on the strengths of the old models, as Razer does not make any changes to the basic design. Instead, the new model brings some spec enhancements.
For example, Razer still uses an Nvidia GPU, but instead of using the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q, the new 2020 version of the Razer Blade Stealth uses the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti- Max-Q. According to the manufacturer, the new GPU should be around 10 % faster.
The job of the main processor is still occupied by an Intel processor of the Ice-Lake series, the Intel Core i7-1065G7. The predecessor used the same CPU, but it was limited to a maximum power consumption of 15 W. The new version meanwhile can consume up to 25 W, which should result in higher clock-rates.
Apart from the performance improvements, the screen is also noticeable. Specifically, the matte FHD (1,920 x 1,080) screen is improved, as Razer now uses a 120 Hz display. According to Razer, this is the first 13.3 inch laptop with such a high refresh-rate. Apart from the matte FHD panel, there also still is a glossy 4K touch screen available. While this screen offers a better color gamut coverage, it does receive the 120 Hz upgrade.
The new Razer Blade Stealth 2020 should be available in May. The FHD version starts at $1,799, while the 4K version costs $1,999.
