Razer is upgrading its Blade Stealth with an improved processor today. The upgraded processor on the new Razer Blade Stealth will give you more power, and some more battery life.
The upgraded Razer Blade Stealth comes with Intel’s new 8th gen processors, which means the device is now more power efficient. In fact, it’ll offer 1 extra hour of battery life, bringing the total battery life of the device up to 10 hours. That’s, of course, an estimate from Razer, so your own mileage may vary depending on your usage.
The Core i7-8550U processor on the device now includes four cores instead of the old two core setup, and that should help things run much faster. Don’t expect to see huge improvements in gaming performance with the added cores, but it will definitely show some improvements in other tasks like video editing.
Razer is also launching a new version of its external GPU enclosure, the Core. The company is adding Thunderbolt 3 support with the Core V2, along with support for Nvidia’s GeForce 10 and AMD Radeon series. If you want to enjoy a powerful gaming experience on the Blade Stealth, getting a Core V2 with a powerful GPU could help you achieve that. Make sure to check out our review of the device here.
The upgraded Blade Stealth is available now for $1,699 in North America, while the new Core will start shipping soon at $499. Both of the products are coming to France, Germany, and the United Kingdom soon.
