Razer has made its Blade Stealth ultrabook even more impressive with the inclusion of a quad-core eighth generation Intel core i7-8550U processor.
Previously, Razer’s lightest and most portable computer capped out with a dual-core seventh gen Intel core processor. The upgrade gives it a solid boost of power with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4GHz. This will also impact battery life, upping it to 10 hours.
All of the other Blade Stealth’s specs remain the same: 16GB of RAM, 13.3-inch QHD+ touch display, Intel HD Graphics 620, and Anti ghosting keyboard all inside a slick aluminum enclosure available in Black or Gunmetal variants.
One of the best perks of picking up the Blade Stealth is its integration with the Razer Core, which Razer also upgraded today.
The Razer Core V2 now features “the world’s first dual Thunderbolt 3 internal controller design that separates lanes for both graphics and connected devices, ensuring fluid gameplay.” It connects to the Blade Stealth via Thunderbolt 3 and provides desktop-level performance for the portable computer.
The new Blade Stealth with the upgraded processor and 512GB SSD will retail for $1,699, while the new Razer Core V2 will cost $499. Both are available today through Razer’s site.
