Razer Announces Updated Razer Blade Stealth Laptop and new eGPU

Sharpening The Edge of Gaming On-the-Go

Razer (Irvine, Calif.) announced two major releases for the gamer on the go. The first is an update to their ultrabook, the Razer Blade Stealth.

This laptop boasts the 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7-8550U Processor with a 16GB of 2133Mhz DDR3 and 512 PCIe SSD. The Blade Stealth is equipped with the Intel® HD Graphics 620 chipset, which powers the 13.3 in. IGZO 16:9, QHD+ (3200×1800) multipoint touchscreen display.

Priced at $1699 USD, the Razer Blade Stealth comes in both Gunmetal with white keyboard backlighting or Black with Razer’s programmable Chroma® RGB-lit keys.

The second announcement is a potent pairing for both the Blade Stealth and other Thunderbolt 3 equipped machines: The Razer Core V2.

The Razer Core V2 is an update to Razer’s current Core external graphics processing (eGPU) unit. The eGPU offers a redesigned internal layout to make room for taller graphics cards. The Core V2 will provide support for a wide range of graphics card function and support – including both NVIDIA’s 10 series cards and AMD’s 500 series, with support for AMD’s XConnect technology.

The Razer Core V2 is no unitasker. Providing 4x USB 3.0 ports and a gigabyte ethernet, this sleek, aluminum eGPU chassis will expand your system BUS and is designed to future-proof your laptop. Alongside boosting the performance for gaming, Razer’s Core V2 will support the use of NVIDIA’s Quadro GPU line for high-end professional applications.

And… it, too, is equipped with Razer’s Chroma® system for more RGB goodness.

The Razer Core V2’s release date is TBA, but the retail price will be $499 USD.

Regarding the announcement, co-founder and CEO, Min-Liang Tan, said: “Our engineers have done something truly remarkable with the new Blade Stealth by significantly increasing power while extending battery life. The new Blade Stealth is the most well-rounded Windows laptop out there, and it can be further supercharged with the help of the new Razer Core V2.”
