Razer Launches The Ultimate Ultrabook - Razer Blade Stealth

Razer are at CES talking all things PC with their all new Razer Blade Stealth, the first Razer laptop to come packed with the latest Intel i7 processor as well as a 4k display and Thunderbolt 3.

“Before today, gamers needed a portable system for everyday work and a separate desktop computer to power their PC games at the highest level possible,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “For the first time ever, there is no need for two separate systems. The Razer Blade Stealth offers the portability of an Ultrabook with the scalability to play hardcore games with desktop graphics performance thanks to the Razer Core. Furthermore, the Razer Blade Stealth starts at just $999, which is significantly lower than any other comparable laptop in its class.”

The Razer Blade Stealth measures 13.2mm thin and weighs just 1.24 kilos. Razer’s latest chassis is CNC-milled out of aircraft grade aluminum, providing a sleek yet solid design. Its 12.5-in. touch display comes in two resolutions: an Ultra HD variant with an eye-dazzling 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and 100 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space, and a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) resolution version. Both displays are touch-enabled and feature wide viewing angles and high-color saturation to display content with striking clarity and accuracy.

The Razer Blade Stealth’s hardcore gaming chops are unlocked via the plug-and-play external desktop graphics enclosure, the Razer Core. A single Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) cable supplies both data and power and is all it takes to connect Razer’s Ultrabook with the Razer Core. The device can accommodate virtually every popular desktop graphics card from both AMD® and NVIDIA®. Physical installation of GPUs takes seconds with the Razer Core—its durable aluminum housing slides open effortlessly and a single screw can secure the graphics card in place. Razer’s solution helps future-proof systems, as graphics cards are easily swappable as new components become available.

The Razer Blade Stealth will start at $999 USD and go up to $1599 USD for the biggest model, sadly no local prices have been confirmed yet, but you can order one now if you want. The Razer Core will be on sale in the first half of 2016.
