The Razer Blade Stealth has a premium, compact design and excellent GPU performance. On the other hand, the CPU performance and especially the optional 4K screen disappoint in our review.

With the Blade Stealth 13, Razer has created a unique package: A compact gaming ultrabook that is not dependent on an eGPU, since it optionally contains the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q.

To be able to cool this powerful GPU, Razer had to compromise. The CPU of this configuration, the Intel Core i7-1065G7, is limited to a maximum power consumption of 15 W. Razer is transparent about this, but we would still criticize the low CPU performance: The CPU is also limited when the GPU is not active at all. This could have been easily avoided.

The biggest reason to criticize this specific configuration of the Razer Blade Stealth is 4K UHD screen. Apart from the higher resolution, it offers no advantages in terms of screen quality and it even is darker than the FHD screen of the cheaper Razer Blade Stealth model. Also, the higher resolution results in significantly lower battery life numbers.

That is why we do not recommend the Razer Blade Stealth with the 4K screen.Instead, people should buy the model with the FHD screen.

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
