Razer continues to solidify its reputation for gaming hardware and peripherals. Its latest product is the Razer Blade Stealth, an ultra-thin laptop for “gamers that go.”
Measuring 13.1mm at its thickest point and weighing only 1.25kg, the Razer Blade Stealth is the lightest and thinnest yet in the Blade lineup. Its 12.5-inch display has either a 2560-by-1440 (QHD) or 3840-by-2160 (UHD) resolution. Running under the hood is an Intel Core i7-6500U processor, with at least 128GB of onboard SSD space and 8GB of RAM. A 64-bit Windows 10 comes preinstalled. Ports and connectivity options include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), USB 3.0 and HDMI.
On its own, the Razer Blade Stealth doesn’t exactly have the specs gamers need to play their AAA titles at great framerates. The graphics powering the laptop is Intel HD Graphics 520, whose capabilities are only up to par with the low-end, discrete GeForce 820M or similar GPU. Fortunately, the Blade Stealth works with the Razer Core (separately sold, price unknown), an external bay that accommodates a desktop-grade graphics card for an ultimate boost in performance.
The QHD version of the Razer Blade Stealth has a base price of $999 (approx. Php47,220), whereas the UHD version starts at $1,399 (approx. Php66,125).
