Razer Blade Stealth 2020 unveiled better GPU 120 Hz display

Last year’s 13.3-inch Razer Blade Stealth was one of the first truly powerful ultrabooks with NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics and a tiny 2.5 pound size, but it still had a few shortcomings. Razer has now addressed many of those the new Razer Blade Stealth 2020 model. It now packs a 120 Hz display for smoother gaming and comes with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU that should boost speeds, too. It also offers Intel’s latest Core i7-1065G7 quad-core processor with faster clock speeds of up to 3.9 GHz.

Along with the 120Hz 1080p display, Razer also offers a 4K touch display with Gorilla Glass. That model is aimed more at content creation pros, but both displays cover 100 percent of the sRGB space and are calibrated from the factory to deliver accurate colors.

The design remains unchanged, with tiny 4.9 mm bezels, USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type C Thunderbolt port and a headphone jack. As before, it can be paired with a Razer Core X eGPU equipped with any GPU for greater gaming speeds. The weight has increased a bit to 3.1 pounds, but it’s still tiny for a laptop with such powerful specs.

The Blade Stealth 13 is still pretty expensive at $1,800, especially considering that you can get the more powerful Blade 15 for just a couple hundred dollars more with a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU. However, lightweight laptops generally aren’t cheap, and the Blade Stealth weighs 1.6 pounds less than the Blade 15. It arrives today in the US and Canada at Razer.com and select retailers, and comes “soon” to Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
