Got an extra $1,800 lying around? Razer just announced its 2020 Blade Stealth 13, which features a 13.3-inch 120Hz display—the fastest display found in any ultrabook. The new Blade Stealth 13 starts at $1,800 and is available for order today.
Previous models of the Blade Stealth 13 sport 60Hz displays, so Razer’s leap to 120Hz is a very, very big deal. Gamers obsess over high refresh rates, and Razer is now the only company to sell an ultrabook with a desktop-class refresh rate. Base models of the Blade Stealth 13 offer a 1080p resolution, but 4K and touchscreen panels will be available at a premium.
Under the hood, the new Blade Stealth 13 is powered by a new GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU with 4GB of game-friendly GDDR6 memory and 1,024 NVIDIA CUDA cores. It’s also packed with a 25-watt variant of the Intel Core i7-1065G7 quad-core processor, which reaches 3.9Ghz clock speeds with Intel Turbo Boost technology. In the end, Razer claims that its new laptop is 80% more powerful than the previous model.
The new Blade Stealth 13 also has a USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port, which works with external GPUs for dual-GPU functionality. Its HD webcam contains an IR sensor for Windows Hello, and its upgraded keyboard has a full-sized right shift key and half-sized directional keys (to address complaints about last year’s Blade Stealth 13 keyboard).
In all, Razer is setting a whole new standard with its 2020 Blade Stealth 13. It’s a powerful, customizable, unique gaming laptop, and it’s the only ultrabook on the market with a 120Hz display. If you have an extra $1,800 lying around, then you might want to mosey over to Razer’s site and buy the Blade Stealth 13.
