Razer Blade Stealth i7-1065G7 Iris Plus Laptop Review: The Cheaper GeForce MX150 is Faster

Allen Ngo 👁, 10/21/2019

Ice to meet you. Razer has jumped in on the 10 nm Ice Lake bandwagon to exploit the new power-efficient Intel Iris Plus GPU. While the resulting performance is where we expect it to be, the $1500 starting price makes this a tough buy when the less expensive Blade Stealth GeForce MX150 version is the better gaming machine.

Razer announced two Blade Stealth Ice Lake SKUs back in September: the 25 W Core i7-1065G7 configuration with Iris Plus graphics for $1500 and the 15 W Core i7-1065G7 configuration with the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics for $1800 USD. This review will focus on the 25 W configuration and the any advantages and disadvantages it brings to the table when compared to the last generation Whiskey Lake-U and GeForce MX Blade Stealth options. Expect our review on the Blade Stealth Ice Lake GTX 1650 Max-Q SKU to come soon.

Aside from the processor swap, the Blade Stealth Ice Lake is visually identical to last year's Blade Stealth with only a few differences that we will note below. Thus, we recommend checking out our existing review pages to learn more about the chassis, keyboard, clickpad, display, speakers, and ports since these remain unchanged. 

Major competitors to the Blade Stealth Ice Lake include other flagship Ultrabooks like the Dell XPS 13, Huawei MateBook X Pro, Asus ZenBook S13, Lenovo Yoga C940, or HP Spectre 13.

Case - Now Slightly Thicker

The chassis for the Blade Stealth Ice Lake SKUs is 0.5 mm thicker than the chassis for the Blade Stealth Whiskey Lake SKUs. Razer says the change in thickness was necessary in order to accommodate the new Ice Lake and optional Turing GPU processors. Otherwise, everything else about the chassis looks and feels just as it did on last year's model.

Currently, the base Iris Plus SKU comes only in Mercury White while the higher-end GTX 1650 Max-Q SKU comes only in Black.

Connectivity - Symmetrical Port Positioning

Both HDMI and an SD reader are still missing on the Blade Stealth. Thus, you'll have to rely on DisplayPort over USB or Thunderbolt 3 for connecting external monitors and SD card reader adapters.

Communication - Wi-Fi 6 Now Standard

Wireless has been updated from the Intel 9560 on last year's model to the Intel AX201 for Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Should your network support it, theoretical transfer rates can be up to 2.4 GHz compared to "only" 1.73 Gbps on the Intel 9560. We experienced no connectivity issues during our time with the test unit.

Input Devices

Keyboard and Touchpad

There are no changes to the keyboard or clickpad. The white key caps and gray font colors, however, contrast more poorly when compared to the standard black Blade Stealth. Other white laptops like the HP Spectre 13 or Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 share this same disadvantage as well.

Display - Same Familiar Sharp Panel

No changes have been made to the display as the Blade Stealth Ice Lake uses the same Sharp LQ133M1JW41 1080p panel as found on the Blade Stealth Whiskey Lake-U. Brightness, contrast, colors, and response times are therefore nearly the same between them as shown by the table below. Uneven backlight bleeding is slightly worse on our Ice Lake test unit and so it's still a gamble if you're looking for that perfectly uniform backlight.

Razer calibrates each unit at factory and our independent X-Rite results confirm this. Average DeltaE values are some of the lowest we've seen on any subnotebook. Attempting to calibrate the display even further ourselves improves grayscale and colors just marginally from DeltaE values of 1.0 to and 1.02 to 0.8 and 0.95, respectively.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
33.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.6 ms rise
↘ 15.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 87 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
45.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22.4 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 71 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 22730 Hz ≤ 24 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 22730 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 24 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 22730 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9276 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Performance

The 10th gen Core i7-1065G7 is a successor to the 9th gen Core i7-8565U and also a direct competitor to the AMD Ryzen 7 3700U. Its integrated Iris Plus GPU is an enormous improvement over the UHD Graphics 620 while being comparable to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 10. Unlike the Blade Stealth GTX 1650 Max-Q SKU, this Iris Plus-only configuration uses the faster 25 W version of the Core i7-1065G7.

LatencyMon shows no DPC latency issues.

 

Processor - Just Barely Ahead of the Core i7-8565U

CPU performance is where we expect it to be when compared to the Lenovo Yoga C940-14IIL equipped with the same Core i7-1065G7 processor. CineBench scores remain the same between Auto fan mode and Maximum fan mode meaning that the main benefit from Maximum fan mode will be the lower temperatures. The i7-1065G7 in the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 benefits from faster initial Turbo Boost performance because Dell allows the CPU to run much warmer.

Raw multi-thread performance is only about 5 to 6 percent faster than the Core i7-8565U on the older Blade Stealth to be essentially unnoticeable during day-to-day use.

See our overview on the Core i7-1065G7 for more information on the processor.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are indeed marginally higher than on last year's Whiskey Lake-U-powered SKU with GeForce MX150 graphics by 2 to 15 percent. The differences become much larger if comparing to the older Kaby Lake-R Blade Stealth with integrated UHD Graphics 620 only.

It's worth noting that we experienced a couple of glitches on our test unit. Firstly, some games took a couple of tries before successfully loading including Rocket League and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Secondly, the system abruptly entered Sleep mode or auto-rebooted two to three times during our testing period. We're unable to reliably reproduce these bugs, but readers should definitely share their own accounts if they've experienced anything similar with their personal Blade Stealth Ice Lake systems.

Storage Devices - No Secondary Slots

Whereas our Whiskey Lake-U Blade Stealth unit came equipped with a 256 GB Lite-On SSD, our Ice Lake unit comes with the Samsung PM981 much like on all the newer Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17 models. Expect this drive to fill up quickly after installing just a small handful of games.

See our growing list of HDDs and SSDs for more benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance - Good Benchmark Results

3DMark benchmarks are great for comparing GPUs within the same product family. For comparing two different GPUs from two different families, however, 3DMark becomes more unreliable. As an example, Fire Strike and Time Spy scores for our Iris Plus system are only 14 percent and 30 percent slower than the 25 W GeForce MX150 or MX250, respectively, to suggest that we can expect similar deficits when running actual games. In practice, the Iris Plus will be substantially slower than the GeForce MX150 or MX250 in most cases.

Strangely, Fire Strike would crash after running Windows Update which Razer says they are looking into. This thankfully does not occur when launching games.

Gaming Performance - Wildly Different Depending on the Game

Gaming with the Iris Plus sounds promising on paper especially when looking at its 3DMark scores as a jumping off point. Unfortunately, real-world performance when running games is a mixed bag with no clean consistency. We're seeing 20 percent and 30 percent slower performance than the Ryzen 7 3700U and GeForce MX150, respectively, when running Shadow of the Tomb Raider on its lowest 720p settings while higher Medium settings will crash the game. On the other hand, performance in Rocket League can be slower than the Ryzen 7 3700U on lower resolutions and faster when on higher resolutions. Running Fortnite at 1080p Medium settings will net similar average frame rates as the aforementioned Ryzen at about 32 FPS. Attempting to run the game at the lowest 1080p settings results in an average frame rate of 50 FPS.

Idling on Witcher 3 for one hour shows steady frame rates save for a sudden dip to around 14 FPS before recovering as shown by our graph below. Undesirable background activity is likely to blame here as this does not occur on most other gaming laptops including on the Whiskey Lake-U-powered Blade Stealth.

See our dedicated page on the Iris Plus GPU for more gaming benchmark comparisons.
