While it is always better to game using your dedicated desktops, there are times when you would prefer a portable mode of gaming. Despite their small stature, gaming laptops are often an all-in-one system that is fully capable of producing an immersive gaming experience that can even perform well under the pressure of competitive gaming.
Known for their elite range of gaming laptops, Razer has since introduced three new models to join their Blade range which includes the Razer Blade Stealth 13 (launched in April 2020) as well as the Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade 17 Pro that was launched in late May 2020. Here’s a closer look at each model.
RAZER BLADE STEALTH 13
For gamers who prefer portability while they game, the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is the brand’s first Ultrabook with a 13.3-inch 120Hz display with the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card and a faster variant of the Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor. The upgraded graphics card means you’ll be able to get an increase in system performance, unlike other smaller-sized laptops, in terms of higher frames, faster renders, and less downtime while you game.
The all-new Blade Stealth 13 includes a 13.3-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate in 1920 x 1080p resolution that delivers fast, crisp visuals which makes targets easier to see during gaming, and text easier to read when working. Available in a 4K display option, you’ll be able to enjoy 4K quality in a compact-sized laptop while you game or catch up on the latest episodes of your current Netflix watch. Knowing that the high-quality visuals could be potentially harmful to your eyes when used for long periods of time, Razer has equipped their displays with a matte coating to help with glare reduction.

RAZER BLADE 15
The next evolution of the Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop is a slightly larger model that allows you to customise your display based on your personal gaming preference. You can choose from a Full HD display with a refresh rate of 300Hz, or a 4K OLED touchscreen that can be paired with a 6-core or 8-core 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and a customisable NVIDIA graphic card.
Armed with the best in graphics technology, the graphic card options for the Blade 15 are able to give you an increase in gaming performance especially when it comes to ray tracing — a rendering technique that generates realistic images by tracing the path of light as pixels. The improvement in graphics provides a way for you to enjoy real-time ray tracing performance and faster frame rates even at high settings for games. This also means that you’ll experience reduced render times and better graphics when enjoying VR content.

Powered by the new Intel 8-core i7-10875H processor, the Blade Pro 17 is able to perform under pressure efficiently, providing you with a versatile laptop that can handle the intensity of a game and the heavy-duty task of 4K video editing. In order to ensure the Blade Pro 17 processors don’t overheat, the laptop is built with a unique vapour chamber cooler for efficient heat dissipation. Paired with a dual-fan system for additional active cooling, you no longer have to worry about the whirring warning sound of your laptop overheating!
