Razer Blade Stealth – The Ultimate Ultrabook

 

The Razer Blade Stealth, billed as the “Ultimate Ultrabook,” has earned more than 20 accolades for excellence since it was launched, including “Best of CES” awards for “Best PC” and “People’s Choice,” as well as PC Mag “Editor’s choice.” This latest laptop by Razer is designed to meet the needs of young professionals and students by combining best-in-class performance, top-of-the-line features and improved battery life at a remarkable value price, starting at €1,099.

The new Razer Blade Stealth stands as one of the most portable laptops in the world, measuring 13.1 mm thin and weighing 1.29 kg. The sleek CNC aluminum chassis of the new Razer Blade Stealth houses the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor for ultimate performance. The ultraportable laptop now packs up to 1 TB of PCIe solid-state storage and up to 16 GB of fast, dual-channel memory for increased storage and productivity. All told, this Razer Blade Stealth sets a new standard for power, durability and design in a system perfected for productivity anywhere.   

A QHD 2560 x 1440 IGZO touch-enabled display comes standard on the new Razer Blade Stealth to provide best-in-class visual performance. Designers, professionals and other creatives who need more pixels can upgrade to a 4K IGZO touch display for 100 percent Adobe RGB color saturation.

For all-day mobility, Blade Stealth features a 53.6 watt-hour battery with over 15 percent more capacity than the previous generation. When on the go, the Blade Stealth can last up to nine hours on a single charge.

For extended mobility, the Razer Power Bank accessory is the perfect travel companion for highly mobile power needs. Available in late 2016, the optional external battery can recharge your Razer Blade Stealth quickly, and houses a 12,800 mAh battery. Razer Power Bank also provides charging for multiple devices at once including a compatible notebook, tablet, and mobile phone.

The Razer Blade Stealth remains one of the only laptops on the market that is equipped with an individually backlit notebook keyboard, which is powered by Razer Chroma™ technology. Custom lighting effects and 16.8 million colors options make personalization on the new Blade Stealth easy to program.

For those gamers who want an Ultrabook during the day and a desktop gaming system after hours, the Blade Stealth easily connects with the optional Razer Core to deliver external desktop graphics power and expanded connectivity options via a single Thunderbolt™ 3 cable for transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps. The Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core remain the only true plug-and-play external graphics solution that does not require a reboot of the system every time a user connects. The Razer Core is also compatible with many of the latest graphics cards including the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and AMD Radeon RX 480. It is now easier than ever to transform a thin and light notebook computer into a desktop system experience.

Delivering performance and mobility at a value price the new Blade Stealth will start at only €1,099 / £999. It is shipping today from RazerStore.com and is available with localized keyboard layouts for German, French and UK.

RAZER BLADE Powerful. Portable. Perfect.

 

The new Razer Blade 14-inch gaming laptop strikes a perfect balance of power and mobility, designed by Razer engineers to be the most portable PC that can play games at maximum settings.

The award-winning Razer Blade is now more powerful than ever by way of a next-generation NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 graphics processor. Equipped with the new NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture, the GPU is three times faster than its predecessor, with a performance increase of more than 40 percent. The result of this enhancement is incredible graphics power that allows users to game at max settings effortlessly while enjoying realistic cinematic experiences with technologies like NVIDIA GameWorks™.

The performance of the new Razer Blade is packed into the thinnest design available in its class. Measuring just 17.9 mm thin and weighing at just 1.89 kg, the laptop sets a milestone in terms of power and portability. Built with a unibody CNC aluminum chassis, the Blade’s svelte exterior is also incredibly durable.

The Razer Blade is optimized for VR performance with low latency and plug-and-play compatibility. It also supports the capture of 360-degree images to view in VR in games that support NVIDIA Ansel™ technology. This makes the Razer Blade the most portable virtual reality system available today.

The Razer Blade comes standard with a 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor, 16 GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory, Killer Wireless-AC and Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity. The system offers more storage than ever before with up to a 1 TB PCIe SSD option and fast data transfer speeds. Other features include an anti-ghosting keyboard that is powered by Razer Chroma™. This technology unlocks a virtually endless array of dazzling lighting effects that can be customized or synced to display in-game events.

Two display options are available for gamers to choose from. A Full HD model offers the best frame rates and a matte screen for minimal glare, while a touch-enabled 3200×1800 QHD+ display provides stunning visual clarity.

For gamers also looking for a larger, higher resolution display, Razer also announced today the new 17.3-inch Razer Blade Pro featuring the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and additional innovative features delivering a desktop gaming experience.
