RazerCon 2020 | Razer launches the Tiger Lake version of the Blade Stealth
The inaugural RazerCon event has just wrapped up, leaving a host of new and updated products from its organizer in its wake. The headliner here is probably the refreshed Blade Stealth, although the only real difference from its predecessors here is its CPU. It now has an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU rather than a 10th-gen as before.
RazerCon 2020 has just gone down as a up-to-date kind of product launch event for the start of this decade. It has revealed a range of new products from its host as planned, including a new take on its 13.3-inch "full gaming laptop power" ultrabook...more or less.
In all honesty, this "new" Blade Stealth does not have much to distinguish it from its immediatepredecessors. It still has the not-broke-didn't-fix CNC-machined black aluminum unibody with the same ports (2 USB type Cs, 2 USB type As and a headphone jack) in the same old locations. However, its processor is now Tiger Lake: it is a Core i7-1165G7 rather than the i7-1065G7 that occupied the motherboards of the preceding 2 generations.
The actual significance of this upgrade may be revealed through our complete review; however, the fact that its Thunderbolt port steps up to the new 4 standard alone may count in its favor. Otherwise, the Razer Blade Stealth still rocks the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q GPU, 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD.
Its SKUs with the FHD 120Hz matte and FHD 60Hz OLED touch-enabled display optionss are already available on Razer's website, priced at US$1799 and $1999 respectively.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
