The Blade Stealth is an ultraportable with an external desktop graphics dock, starting at $999. Weighing in at 2.75 pounds, at a thickness of 0.52 inch with its 12.5-inch screen, it is the smallest Blade from Razor. Processing power comes from a 6th gen core i7 paired with 8GB of memory.
The Razor Blade Stealth features a QHD(2,560-by-1,440) screen or an optional 4K panel, with a model that allows for multiple configurations.Featuring a sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory, up to 512GB (for 4K models) of PCIe solid-state drive storage, and integrated Intel HD Graphics 520, the Stealth is geard for some oomph.Other features include a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C, and individually backlit keys.
The Blade is just a member of a trio that was announced, and for a full hardcore gaming experience, all members need to be present. The other items are the graphics dock, the Razor Core, able to house virtually any AMD or NVIDIA card, and the Razor Stargazer webcam
The Razor Core, a selling point of the machine since no real gaming can be expected from an integrated graphics chip, is a dock that is attached to the Blade using a thunderbolt 3 port. It sports the ability to output to an externa display, a few USB ports, and has a simple installation, secured with a small screw. It connects using a standard USB type C, unlike a similar solution from Alienware which uses a proprietary connector. The Core’s price was not announced.
The Razor Stargazer camera sounds great on paper, able to capture HD at 60fps, and featuring Intel’s realsense technology which makes it compatible with Windows Hello, and the Dynamic Backround removal feature they touted. The stargazer is capable also of 3D object scanning. It will be available for $199 later this year.
Starting at $999, the Blade Stealth tops out at $1599. It will ship directly from Razer later this month, while Microsoft stores will begin selling it in February.
