Razer Blade Stealth 2020 Complete Walkthrough: The Most Powerful Ultrabook Gets Faster

by birtanpublished on August 16, 2020

One of my favorite little ultrabooks just got a refresh this is the razer blade stealth 2020 with a gtx 1650 ti gpu in it along with some other nice bumps in the specs which we'll talk about in a sec for now razer sent me the new stealth to

Borrow so let's go through it in this complete walkthrough now if you're not familiar complete walk down this channels where i try to go through every single feature i possibly can on new device

So that you guys are better prepared should you be in the market to actually go buy one with that said there's a lot to go through so let's get started with the hardware

The new stealth comes in two models that are basically identical except for the screen options firstly we have a 13.3 inch fhd non-touchscreen display with an anti-glare coating that is apparently

The world's first 13.3 inch display on an ultrabook to feature 120 hertz refresh rate this means that that screen can refresh the image on it up to 120 times a second versus the more traditional 60 for the

More common 60hz displays for most of your day-to-day tasks you'll be hard-pressed to notice much of a difference though except maybe in a browser while scrolling but the big benefit to this

Is seen when playing video games it means much smoother graphics and being able to react a lot faster to things on the screen now in addition to that high refresh display we also have a 4k touch screen

Model for an extra 200 both screens though cover 100 of the srgb color gamut have 4.9 millimeter bezels on the sides the bottom one is much larger you'll notice we have a 16

By nine aspect ratio and razer apparently individually calibrates the displays in the factory the only difference between the two is that the 4k model is one tenth of a pound heavier

Which is identical to the older model differences between the touch screen and non-touch screen models so it's safe to say that literally that's the difference in weight between the two display technologies the chassis are

Made of a cnc milled unibody design that razer's sort of known for at this point along with the new clean square lines that they've added relatively recently to the entire blade lineup and in my opinion all of this definitely

Gives it a much more premium look and feel than some of the other gaming laptops out there something else unmistakably razer is the three-headed snake logo on the

Back and since this is the stealth it doesn't light up like it does on the blade 15 models and instead is two-tone and etched into the lid above that screen we have a 720p webcam that can also be used for windows

Hello to unlock the computer using your face and for anyone curious this is what that webcam looks like and the mics sound like beneath the screen we have our rgb chroma enabled

Keyboard that unlike the other larger razer models isn't a per key chroma but instead the entire keyboard is a single unit that you can change the colors of using the built-in razer synapse app

Something interesting about this keyboard though is that they change the size of the shift key on the right to match the same size on the left like most keyboards do

As well as gave this new stealth half-sized arrow keys to have things line up a bit better now the old keyboard from last year's stealth never really bothered me as much as the rogue function key on the 15 inch

Models does you can see what i mean by that in any of my walkthroughs on the 15-inch models that i've linked below so i won't get into that here but i know others who were slightly

Annoyed by it regardless there's something about the keyboard that i've always liked they have a good balance of clicky travel to them and i enjoy typing on this keyboard frankly but it's always

Nice to see a company taking user complaints into account here and actually fixing them based on that feedback under that we have our thankfully precision track pad that if you aren't familiar

Allows windows to handle the drivers for the trackpad compared to the oems that used to each have their own and so it's honestly more precise and can use windows gestures too which i use a lot also while using the stealth

I realize that there is something about the trackpad that even other microsoft precision trackpad devices don't have but i can't quite put my finger on it no pun intended it just feels smoother to the touch and

Just better frankly on the other side of the keyboard we have four speakers that are dolby atmos enabled and they get pretty loud and for the most part they sound pretty clear except

For maybe a totally full volume there's just a hint of distortion for ports we have a usb type-c 3.1 gen 2 port a usb a 3.1 gen 2 port and a 3.5 millimeter audio jack on the

Left on the right we have another usb type a 3.1 gen 2 port and another usb type c 3.1 gen 2 port that is also thunderbolt 3 capable so you can connect this to an egpu to be

Able to use an even more powerful graphics card you can see my video on that at the link here for connectivity we have bluetooth 5.1 and wi-fi 6 which is 802.11ax in other words

And you can check out my decoder episode my explainer series here on the channel for what that actually means for battery we have a 53.1 watt hour battery in here that razer claims will get eight hours of battery life

And just like older stealth models it comes with a 100 watt usbc charger that i appreciate because it's pretty tiny and makes for even less weight to carry around with the laptop now honestly this is a pre-production

Model as they won't actually go on sale for a bit so it's not really fair for me to show benchmarks or battery tests on it like i normally would but you can check out my real world test

That i did on the last model for how the battery lasted while editing versus web browsing as well as how fast it charged and i assumed that this one will be similar if only

Slightly worse thanks to a more powerful cpu which i guess we should talk about now under the hood we have the aforementioned nvidia gtx 1650 ti max q gpu with four

Gigs of gdr6 vram compared to the gdr5 vram from last year's gtx 1650 stealth and 1024 cuda cores and with that nvidia says that it'll have an up to 10 performance boost over the 1650 which

Isn't much but regardless this is still the most powerful gpu in a laptop of this size period paired with that is 16 gigs of fixed gdr4 x ram compared to the gdr4 in last

Year's model and we have a quad core 10th gen i7 1065 g7 processor that has been upgraded to run at 25 watts instead of the 15 watts of last year's model

That bump in wattage will translate to up to 25 performance boost in the cpu according to some popular testing sites like a non-tech and that's a decent amount at least for

Storage you get the typical one option of 512 gigs in the form of a pcie m.2 ssd but regardless you can easily upgrade that yourself which is great thanks to razer's no bloat policy it runs windows 10 it doesn't have any apps

From razer pre-installed like other manufacturers might do we do however have some microsoft added bloatware that you can right click on and uninstall easily enough the one app that is from razer i don't

Really consider bloatware and it's called synapse and it allows you to customize the chroma as i mentioned before but also create macros adjust fan speed and performance settings

Etc the razer blade stealth gtx 1650 ti costs eighteen hundred dollars for the fhd hundred and twenty hertz model and two thousand dollars for the 4k touchscreen model you know the link below for more info on

Both as well as the cheapest price that i could find now it feels very much to me like an incremental bump for the stealth lineup in a lot of ways but the keyboard change will be big for

Some people as well as that cpu and the refresh rate now to me it's still the most power that you can get for video editing or gaming in the smallest package possible and while it's not quite powerful enough to

Edit some of my videos when i use like 6k raw footage for example it can actually handle my 4k footage pretty darn well so long as i don't use too many crazy effects and as someone who normally at least

Travels as much as i did i love the idea of having a laptop this small and light that i can still edit my videos on there guys hope you enjoyed that let me know what you guys think of this

Laptop of this video in the comments below always appreciate hearing from you guys and if you like this video please thumbs up it or share it it's greatly appreciated and check out the rest of
