Razer has launched a new concept: the Ultra Gaming laptop, a thin and light Ultrabook with insane gaming performance. The Blade Stealth 13 2020 that Razer sent for testing is set to be one of Razers thinnest, lightweight and stylish laptops with Intel’s latest 11th Gen i7-1165G7 and Nvidia’s 1650Ti Max-Q discrete graphics, 16G on-board LPDDR4 high-speed RAM and 512G NVMe SSD. The laptop also features a brushed metal body and weighs a mere 1.48kg.

The version we got this time is the 1080P with 60Hz touchscreen, and Australia doesn’t have the 4K touchscreen version this time. So let’s dig in.

In recent years, Razer has made a concerted effort to support the environment saving, and not to be as extravagant as other brands with their packaging. The first step is to reduce the size of the packaging, keeping the accessories simple, with no extra unnecessary accessories or cables available, and the last is to use as much recycled paper as possible for internal support to reduce the use of plastic. It has to be said that Razer didn’t do this out of sheer cheapness, but rather than buying accessories that may not be used by end users, Razer was able to cut costs and give back to its customers.

The second layer is the accessories box with the familiar sticker, greeting card, support card, manual and a microfibre cloth

Thermal Tests

We are pressure testing this laptop by using AIDA64, PRIME95 and furmark.

Test room temperature: 23℃±2℃
CPU Idle temperature: 46℃±3℃
GPU idle temperature: 31℃

Fan setting is kept in ‘auto’ mode
Under AIDA64 Single FPU pressure test, this Intel i7-1165G7 is partially throttoling down to 3.07GHz
The CPU package temperature is around 90℃±3℃

Under AIDA64 Single CPU pressure test, the Intel i7-1165G7 is running normally @ 4.09GHz
The CPU package temperature is around 76℃±7℃

Under AIDA64 CPU,Cache & FURMARK GPU pressure test, this Intel i7-1165G7 is throttoling down to 2.6GHz
The CPU package temperature is around 80℃±10℃
The GPU temperature is around 76℃±0℃

The thermal snapshots under PRIME95 pressure test
Front – A panel | It’s around 33℃ in the top middle of the panel, around 53℃ next to the 2 exhausting vents

Front – C panel | It’s around 44℃ in the middle and top middle of the keyboard, around 51℃ next to the 2 exhausting fans

Bottom – D panel | It’s around 50℃ in the middle of the panel, around 57℃ at the exhausting vents

The Noise level of maximum 5600RPM dual-fan spinning is around 52.1dBA

Overall, as a 13-inch machine, the Razer Blade Stealth 13’s temperature control is okay, but based on the overall thermal architecture design and small heatsink area, it is not recommended to overclock to improve performance.

Disassembling analysis

Opening the back panel is very easy, just unscrew some hexagonal screws. There are no disposable and fragile snaps on edges.

Overall, this laptop features a lightweight, high performance design that can support light gaming, office and entertainment usage. the Razer Blade Stealth 13 takes care of it all very well. The decent battery life and the portable design of the multi-purpose charger not only allow users to open up to receive emails or work on images or photos whenever they travel, but also to open up a game after work and relax. It’s not the ultimate in performance, but it can be done with calm and ease. The matte black design is more than capable of reflecting a touch of geeky attitude, and with Chroma’s illusionary design, users can fully unleash their personality. However, the $3699 pricing is a bit high and hopefully Razer will reconsider its pricing strategy.
