90% Razer Blade Stealth 13 2020 review (Core i7, GTX 1650Ti, 120 Hz screen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
With the improvements to the design from last year, faster CPU and 120 Hz display, I think Razer finally nailed it with this 2020 Stealth 13. This is probably the best performing laptop at this size and weight class that you could possibly ask for, but you have to be willing to pay extra for it.

80% Razer Blade Stealth (2020) review: A tiny gaming laptop with a big price
Source: PC World English
The 13-inch Razer Blade Stealth is both a fantastic work machine and a solid gaming machine—if you can ignore that it costs more than comparable machines in both categories. The 15-inch Blade fills nearly the same role, and for cheaper. Just buy a bigger bag.

Razer Blade Stealth (2020) review: A tiny gaming laptop with a big price
Source: Good Gear Guide English
I loved my time with the Razer Blade Stealth, as I’ve loved the ones that came before. But this time I’ve struggled to pin down the intended audience. Taken in a vacuum, the Blade Stealth’s both a fantastic work machine and a solid gaming machine—if you can ignore that it costs more than comparable machines in both categories.

80% Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2020) Ultrabook Review
Source: Kitguru English
It is pricey but you’re getting a very solid and absolutely tiny bit of kit here that stands tall. If you’re purely after a gaming beast then look elsewhere, get a big chunky desktop replacement for the same price and you’ll love it… but that’s not what the Stealth 13 is trying to be, it’s trying to be the stealthiest one in the room and personally, we think it’s achieved that.

Razer Blade Stealth 13 Review from a MacBook user's POV
Source: Max Tech English
The Razer Blade Stealth 13 packs an Nvidia GTX 1650 TI graphics card which is really impressive for how portable this ultrabook is! It also comes with a new 10th-Gen Intel i7 quad-core CPU, so it definitely has a lot of performance. In this video, I take a look at the new Blade Stealth from an Apple user's perspective to see what I like and dislike about this new laptop. I compare a few things about it to Apple's 2020 13" MacBook Pro with Four Thunderbolt 3 ports which is priced at $1800.

2020 Razer Blade Stealth - The "MacBook Pro" for Gamers?
Source: Max Tech English
The 2020 Razer Blade Stealth features the new Nvidia GTX 1650 TI Max-Q dedicated graphics card, so it packs more graphics power than ever before into a thin and light laptop! The design of this laptop is excellent, with the all-aluminum build, excellent keyboard, quite loud speakers and decent trackpad. The display, however, is great! The only downside is the bottom chin which might not be a huge deal to you.

Model:

The Razer Blade Stealth 2020 seems to be a great compromise for those seeking a classy, ultraportable laptop that offers the ability to game during downtime. The overall design of the Razer Blade Stealth has remained untouched since 2019. The device still carries the slender, black aluminium frame like the original. One key difference has to be the RGB lighting that is situated just beneath the keyboard. It can be customized based on the user’s preference with the superb Razer Synapse software. Razer’s more modest approach is evident in the lid’s logo, which has replaced the luminous green colouring to a stencil outline alternative.

Stealth definitely flaunts a simplistic look that would never appear to be out of place, even in an office setting. The device looks rather modern, even though the razor-thin bezel that surrounds the screen does not reach the bottom of the panel. Another change to the design front that has been carried through can be found on the keyboard. The company has definitely widened the size of the right-sided Shift key compared to the 2019 version. However, due to this shift, the ‘up’ and ‘down’ arrow keys have been squashed down in size.

In terms of its connectivity, the Stealth 2020 has been equipped with a Thunderbolt 3 port, USB Type-A and a headphone jack. The latter is definitely great news for wired headphone users. As far as the performance is concerned, the Razer Blade Stealth 2020 has been equipped with an Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor along with the new GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q GPU. While this certainly is not one of the most powerful mobile GPUs on the market, it appears to offer decent Full-HD performance, while also keeping the size and cost down. Basic tasks such as web browsing and video streaming can be achieved with nippy speeds, even when there are multiple tabs being opened at the same time. The device comes with 16 GB of RAM along with 512 GB of storage.

The cooling system of the device has not been changed from the 2019 GeForce SKU. When gaming, the fan noise was actually found to be louder, at almost 43 dB compared to 38 dB on last year’s model. However, it should be noted that there is a more demanding 25W CPU to cool this time around. As for the battery life, it would take about 1.5 hours to recharge the device from empty to full capacity. The runtimes are closer to the 2019 Blade Stealth GTX 1650 Max-Q compared to the longer lasting 2018 MX150 version. However, the battery percentage was found not to drop while gaming, as opposed to the 2018 model. While there was a lot disappointment with the 2019 version, the 2020 version has addressed those concerns upfront to be the fastest Blade Stealth one can find. But the choice of owning one is still very subjective, depending on a users’ choice and need.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop GTX 1650 Ti to achieve a much lower power consumption (35 versus 50 - 80 Watt).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
