CES 2016 – Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core plays in their own league


When it comes to gaming equipment, Razer are the first that come to mind, and the new  Razer Blade Stealth might give you a better understanding of the phenomenon.

For several years, Razer managed to prove that they not only have a special ability to create peripherals, but they also develop amazing portable systems. If a notebook from the American company startled your interest, but you were scared by the price, you will be happy to know that the same manufacturer comes forward with a more accessible offer.

The package shown in the image above consists of Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core. The first of these is a simple and attractive ultrabook, while the second is an external video card you can turn to easily when it comes to gaming at maximum detail. But let’s start at the beginning.

Razer Blade Stealth is an ultraportable device, just 1.32 centimeters thick and with a weight of only 1.24 kg, built around the latest and most advanced sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processors from Intel. The amount of RAM is nailed to 8GB but will be enough in most circumstances. Storage space is variable depending on the budget, PCI Express type for achieving the highest speeds is used. It has a 12.5-inch diagonal standard and uses a touch panel with Quad HD resolution – 2560 x 1440 or 4K Ultra HD – 3840 x 2160 pixels.

The graphics processor used by Razer Blade Stealth is an Intel IGP, without a trace of dedicated video card. The reasons is that, for design or gaming, simply connect your laptop to Razer Core, a pretty impressive box that can accommodate some of the most powerful graphics cards launched in recent years, including some very demanding. Basically, you have an external video card that you can just turn to sometimes.

The starting price for Razer Blade Stealth is $ 1,000, while the maximum configuration will increase in value up to 1600 dollars.

Razer Core uses a USB Type C port to connect with your portable system and is able to host video cards with a maximum consumption of 375W. In addition to a power cord, the same Core incorporates four additional USB 3.0 ports. By the end of January you should be able to get your hands on both devices.
