Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2020) Ultrabook Review

Rating: 8.0.

Earlier this year we reviewed Razer’s “first gaming ultrabook” with a tiny 13.3inch display, which had integrated graphics. Razer have outdone themselves as today we’re checking out the new and improved Razer Blade Stealth 13, which I think now truly deserves the ‘gaming ultrabook’ title because it now has a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics card inside! At a whopping starting price of £1899.99, how does it stack up?

Before we dive into this review, remember that this is an ultrabook – it’s a tiny, super thin, laptop and not a full sized power house laptop!

Despite how small this little package, is our model comes in at a rather hefty £1899.99, and for that you’re getting a Quad-Core 10th Gen Intel i7-1065G7 CPU with Hyper Threading with a base of 1.3GHz up to 3.9GHz with Turbo at 25W. We finally get that dedicated graphics card, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM, and this is Max-Q so it can be squeezed into such a tiny package. We have only one drive here, a 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2, which is twice the size of the SSD in the previous Stealth 13.

In terms of RAM we get 16GB at 3733MHz, fixed in dual-channel. A 120Hz 13.3” Full HD 1920x1080p display is also in use here, while the machine boasts a 53.1 Wh battery, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, as well as a selection of ports including Thunderbolt 3 USB-C, and 2x Type-A USB 3.1 Gen1.
