Razer brought its current Blade line of laptops to the IFA 2019 Electronics Show in Berlin, including the updated Blade Stealth 13, which the company calls the world's first gaming ultrabook. We have heard similar statements before, but this time it is quite true. Razer Blade Stealth 13 GTX received a discrete GeForce graphics card. Not the MX-series, which is usually used now in ultraportable laptops, but an actual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, and this is in a compact case with a thickness of about 15 mm. A more modest Blade Stealth 13 Mercury White model with Intel Iris Plus graphics will also be available. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 will make it quite comfortable to play modern titles in FullHD, although not at maximum speed. The question remains how efficiently the cooling system will cope with this video card.
Both options use the new 25-watt Intel Core i7-1065G7 quad-core processor with a clock frequency of 1.3 to 3.9 GHz. The amount of RAM is 16 GB, LPDDR4-3733 is used. As storage, PCIe SSD M.2 format with a capacity of 256 or 512 GB is installed. The laptops have 13.3-inch screens with FullHD or 4K resolution with 100 percent sRGB color gamut coverage. There are Wi-Fi 6 wireless modules (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 5.0, Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, USB 3.1 Type-A. Four speakers are in charge of the sound, and the keyboard is equipped with a Razer Chroma backlight. Dimensions are 304.6x210x15.3 mm, weight - 1.32–1.47 kg. Blade Stealth 13 looks and feels very cool, the body is completely metal and (at first impressions) made with high quality. The price starts at 1,500 US dollars.
Another relatively recent model is the Razer Blade Studio Edition. It was announced back at Computex 2019, but now it could be seen alive. In fact, these are peculiar modifications of Blade 15 and Blade 17, but with a slightly different composition and in the color Mercury White. They are designed for professional use when working with graphics: a discrete Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 graphics card in the Max-Q design is installed inside and comes with the Nvidia Studio Drivers package.
The Blade 15 Studio Edition received an Intel Core i7-9750H processor and an OLED screen with a resolution of 4K, and a larger model, the Blade 17 Studio Edition is equipped with a Core i9-9880H and a 4K screen with a frame frequency of 120 Hz. The maximum amount of RAM is 32 GB, and the drive goes up to 1 TB, the model also has NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs. Prices will be very impressive at around $4000+.

The 15.6-inch Razer Blade 15 received two options: Base Model and Advanced Model. The Basic one is equipped with IPS FullHD (a screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and a discrete GeForce RTX 2060graphics card. The Advanced Model uses a 240 Hz FullHD matrix or a 4K OLED touchscreen, and the video card can go all the way up to GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q. Inside, there are 16 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM which can go up to 64 GB, Blade 17 is similar internally, and the screen is 17.3 inches FullHD with a refresh rate of 144 Hz.
