Razer has updated the Stealth 13 Ultrabook now making it a true gaming machine courtesy of a GTX GPU. While the predecessor had the processor performance worth taking on the power-hungry titles, it lacks in the graphics department. That’s among the core changes with the new Razer Stealth 13 Gaming UltraBook.

“The new Razer Stealth brings gaming to consumers who want extreme portability by bringing the power of the Turing architecture and GTX 1650 graphics to a 13″ laptop,” said Kaustubh Sanghani, VP, and GM at NVIDIA®. “We’re extremely proud of our collaboration, and this GTX laptop is a testament to Razer’s impressive design ingenuity.”

It takes great expertise and engineering to tuck the wide NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM in such a compact and slim Ultrabook. But Razer has managed to overcome the odds.

The previous Stealth 13 came with an NVIDIA MX150 GPU which is no match for the GTX 1650 in the Stealth 13 gaming edition. Besides, it has been engineered with NVIDIA Optimus, a computer GPU switching technology which intelligently balances power and productivity.

The processor power is also on point. Razer’s choice of the latest Intel® 10th Gen Core i7-1065G7 that boasts 3.90GHz maximum Turbo frequency. It is backed up by a 16GB of LPDDR4 RAM for seamless gameplay and supports up to 512GB PCIe storage.

The new Razer Stealth GTX models are available in two display options depending on what gaming you want. There’s the Stealth 13 which features a Full-HD display for 1080p gaming and the Stealth 13 UHD for 4k gaming. Both displays are custom-calibrated to guarantee color accuracy, covering 100% of the entire sRGB space.

The Razer Stealth 13 Gaming GTX series is also available in two color options – the standard Razer’s signature tone-on-tone matte black and white finish.

The connectivity options are world-class. You get the latest technology, including Bluetooth® 5.0, Wi-Fi-6 and Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C™) port with 4 lanes of PCI Express. This is in addition to the HDMI port, two Type-A USB 3.1, 3.5mm headphone/microphone port

As far as the design goes, you can never go wrong with Razer – this new model borrows much from the earlier Stealth 13. It features a customizable single-zone Razer Chroma RGB keyboard, large glass trackpad, and a thin 15 mm chassis.

But unfortunately, the Razer Stealth 13 gaming edition is not in the market yet – it has just been announced at the IFA 2019. But the San Diego-based manufacturer promised that it would hit the stores at the end of September. Considering the top-notch gaming specifications, especially the GPU, it’s worth the wait. Prices will start from $1500.
