Razer today announced the new Razer Blade Stealth laptop featuring Intel's latest 8th generation quad-core processor and the Razer Core V2 external graphics enclosure.
The new Razer Blade Stealth quad-core variant comes equipped with a quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8550U processor. This latest quad-core CPU supports Turbo Boost speeds up to 4 GHZ, while improved battery life now provides up to 10 hours of mobility. For extreme multitasking, Razer also includes 16 GB of dual-channel system memory.
The Razer Blade Stealth features the 13.3-inch Quad HD+ (3200 x 1800) IGZO touch-enabled display with 100 percent sRGB color space.
The laptop retains its claim as one of the most portable and durable machines on the market, measuring 0.54 inches thin and weighing 2.97 pounds. The chassis is CNC-milled from aircraft grade aluminum, and available in either black or gunmetal gray finish. The black version of the Razer Blade Stealth remains one of the only portable laptops in the world equipped with the individually backlit Razer Chroma laptop keyboard.
The new quad-core Razer Blade Stealth is available at $1,699 and is equipped with 16GB of RAM and a 512 GB PCIe SSD. It is shipping today from RazerStore.com in the United States, Canada, France, United Kingdom, and Germany.
The Razer Core V2 allows gamers to transform highly mobile Thunderbolt 3 laptops like the Razer Blade Stealth into a desktop-class gaming experience. A single Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection is all it takes to connect a laptop with the graphics enclosure.
It now features the first dual Thunderbolt 3 internal controller design that separates lanes for both graphics and connected devices, ensuring fluid gameplay. The external graphics enclosure comes with four USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit Ethernet for connecting a wide array of peripherals.
Starting from a block of durable raw aluminum, the Razer Core V2's chassis is CNC precision milled for a rigid and compact form-factor. This compact design encloses a 500W power supply to provide adequate power for graphics and connected devices.
The Razer Core v2 external graphics enclosure now supports the most popular gaming graphics cards, including NVIDIA GeForce 10 series and AMD Radeon 500 series with XConnect technology.
For professional use, the Razer Core v2 now allows users to connect an external high-end desktop NVIDIA Quadro GPU to Thunderbolt 3 eGPU-enabled laptops.
The Razer Core V2 will be available at $499 and will be shipping soon in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
