In 2020, the company plans to launch a late 2020 refreshed model for the 13-inch variant that arrives with an 11th gen processors. Razer blade also features an OLED display option.

As per Razer’s latest statement, the new laptop offers at least 2.7 times the performance for content creation and more than 20 percent faster in office productivity as compared to the previous iteration.
What more can you expect?
Razer Blade is another notable inclusion in this upcoming latest display. The all-new Razer blade stealth currently offers an FHD touchscreen OLDE feature that will include 100 percent CPI-P3, which is very important for content creators that need accurate colors for their work.
Just like to the previous generation, the laptop also features a non- touch FHD panel, with a 120HZ display, which is the highest refresh rate at the specific size. Additionally, Razer has paid close attention to audio with the latest laptop. Though the previous version had a decent audio jack, it lacked the more extended bass.

These improvements on an already a robust design that make it easy to recommend, though, aren’t as great choice winning the 2019 version.
The value of the Razer blade is undercut somewhat due to the presence of massively priced 14-inch Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 based on AMD Ryzen Silicon. You need to know there is no direct comparison for this premium gaming device.
Razer’s signature style – Metal
So when we start with the design, the Blade 13 Stealth is most likely to retain the square shape, and it features cutting round corners for a sharper and more contemporary look. The new lid logo switched from the classic lime Razer logo as compared to the etched black on the black logo.
Above all, the Razer blade‘s stealth is one of the best feelings and looking notebooks around while remaining highly portable. The laptop weighs only 3.1 pounds, which is impressively thin and just perfect right for slipping into a bag for the commute.

Unique 13 inch display
Currently, you won’t see any changes instantly. It all starts with the display, which is still the HD screen but now with a refreshed rate of 120HZ. As per Razer, it is one of the highest refresh rate available on a 13-inch laptop that makes sense as almost on a 13-inch laptop.
It won’t often hit the 120Hz ceiling but being able to above 60 frames per second, which is ideally a boon for multiplayer games. The screen quality is a healthy, sharp, and vibrant picture. The thin display bezels complete the contemporary look. Additionally, there is also a 4K screen option in a more expensive model.
You need to know that graphics are the same as before with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU. 4GB GDDR6 boosts it with Max-Q Design and 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The new model also features a hard drive for expandable storage.
Lastly, the new Razer blade 13 laptops also feature 4x upward-facing speakers and THX spatial audio to complement all the models’ sound.
Razer isn’t stopping with the new gaming laptop for sure as the company has also debuted its first-ever gaming chair known as Razer Iskur. Well, you need to know that the 2020 Blade stealth 13 is undoubtedly an improvement on the past model in design. The new version is refined, and it also includes some new features like a high refresh display design and even a friendly keyboard.
Though based on the same design, it is one of the best smaller screen ultraportables available in the market and the only one that doubles the capability of an average laptop.
