Razer intros Blade Stealth Ultrabook and Razer Core desktop GPU enclosure
Razer has introduced today the Blade Stealth Ultrabook that can turn into a powerful gaming notebook with the help of the Razer Core desktop GPU enclosure.
The Razer Blade Stealth features a 12.5-inch IGZO touch display available in UHD (3840 x 2160, 352ppi, 100% Adobe RGB) and QHD 2560 x 1440, 234ppi, 70% Adobe RGB) resolutions. The anti-ghosting keyboard is individually backlit with access to 16.8 million color options courtesy of Razer Chroma.
Powering it is an Intel Core i7-6500U dual-core CPU with Hyper Threading, Intel HD Graphics 520, 8GB LPDDR3 RAM, up to 512GB SSD, and Windows 10 64-bit. At this point, the Blade Stealth looks like your ultimate ultrabook but not exactly going to shine when it comes to gaming. This is where the Razer Core comes in.
The Razer Core, as mentioned earlier, is a desktop graphics enclosure that can accommodate a single double-wide, full-length, PCI-Express x16 graphics card. Just install your own powerful GPU in the Core and connect it to the Blade Stealth via Thundberbolt 3 (40Gbps cable included) and you’re good to go. The Core also features other connectivity options like 4x USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet.
The Razer Blade Stealth starts at $999 and ships this month. The Razer Core, on the other hand, doesn’t have a price tag yet with availability yet to be announced.
