Reviews for the Razer Blade Stealth i7-8565U

85.6% Razer Blade Stealth (i7-8565U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The new Blade Stealth proves that not all GeForce MX150 GPUs are created equal. It's the fastest 13.3-inch Ultrabook we've tested with graphics performance just shy of a GTX 960M all in a sleek package the size of a MacBook Pro 13.
80% Razer Blade Stealth 2019 review (Core i7, MX150 graphics – Quartz Pink edition)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 2019 Blade Stealth is the right laptop for you if you’re looking for a very portable and lightweight machine with excellent build quality, a great screen, good everyday performance and battery life, as well as the ability to play older/casual PC titles on medium graphics settings, at the end of the workday. It's not without flaws, though, and Razer sure expects you to pay a premium for this bundle.

Razer Blade Stealth (2019) review: One of the nicest laptops I can't afford
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Razer Blade Stealth is a really nice work laptop that inherits a bevy of gaming features to great effect. If you’re looking for that, and have the money to burn, it’s a really compelling package. And if you’re the person who has the money to both buy this and then use it with a Razer Core external graphics unit, it’s even more tantalizing.

The Razer Blade Stealth is a really nice work laptop that inherits a bevy of gaming features to great effect. If you’re looking for that, and have the money to burn, it’s a really compelling package. And if you’re the person who has the money to both buy this and then use it with a Razer Core external graphics unit, it’s even more tantalizing. However, if you don’t - or if you’re looking to save a buck - there are plenty of other options out there that have the Razer Blade Stealth beat. In isolation, it’s a formidable package but, in context, it’s far from the only game in town. It doesn’t come cheap but, assuming you can afford it, you’re going to get a lot out of the Razer Blade Stealth.

80% Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2019) review
Source: Stuff TV English
If you do desire a machine that’s tiny, light and capable of a bit of gaming, though, the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is excellent – and it’s a great option if you want a brooding ultraportable for work, too. Just be aware of its prices and compromises before you take the plunge.

85% Razer Blade Stealth 13 review: An ultraportable notebook for gamers
Source: Hardware Zone English
To wrap up, the new Razer Blade Stealth 13 is a polished and refined ultraportable notebook that has features that most gamers are looking for in a portable notebook. The model with discrete graphics that I tested has good performance, a very respectable battery life, and a Thunderbolt 3 port so that it can be hooked up to an external GPU. Overall build quality is one of the best in the business and its design is clean, simple, and attractive in a minimalist way. The keyboard and trackpad are both excellent but the shrunken right “Shift” key can be problematic for some.

70% Razer Blade Stealth (2019) Review: The Cost Of Compromise
Source: The Verge English
Even with its new design, improved graphics power, and better quality-of-life features, the Blade Stealth still occupies an awkward middle ground. It’s a portable laptop that doesn’t have the battery life of many other thin and light computers, but it also isn’t really powerful enough for serious gaming or video editing.

Razer Blade Stealth Review
Source: Techspot English
It’s not unusual for top-end products with the fastest hardware to offer less than optimal bang for buck; there’s always a premium associated with getting the fastest or best products. The question is whether you’re willing to pay extra, or whether you’d be satisfied with the multitude of other options on the market.

80% Razer Blade Stealth 13 (late 2018) review: Raw power but unfulfilled potential
Source: It Pro English
Gorgeously designed and packed full of power, the Razer Blade Stealth has the makings of an elite device that can compete with the likes of the MacBook Pro. This 13.3in ultraportable is, however, let down by a handful of problems that blacken its otherwise strong credentials.

All of which means the Stealth 13 is a darned desirable as a luxury Ultrabook. Think of it in those terms and the moderate gaming ability as an extra rather than a core feature and its an appealing if pricey overall package.

Razer modernizes its 2019 13-inch Blade Stealth for both work and play
Source: CNet English
It does preserve its portitude relative to other ultraportables, with two USB-A ports and two USB-C connections, one of which supports Thunderbolt. You'll still need to dongle it for HDMI and Ethernet, which dulls the luster a tiny bit for business use.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

13.3":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.31 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is an American hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories; traditionally computer mice. The products were often named after fables or animals. However, Razer also offers laptops under the series name "Blade".

 

There are reviews on the Razer Blade series since 2013, but not overly many. The market share in the laptop market is low and the ratings are average (as of 2016).


80.04%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
