Razer adopts the Kaby Lake-R quad-core processors on its slim mobile phone, providing additional hope for the external graphics processing market with a new version of the K-Razer Core
Razer was one of the first prominent manufacturers to embrace the impressive bandwidth of Thunderbolt 3 technology with both hands - using theRazer Core Which were marketed as an ideal add-on for its blade stealth blades, based on modest built-in graphics cores, as opposed to the rugged gaming line that characterizes the vast majority of its products, giving them great graphics processing power with ease and agility by simply connecting a single cable.
The price was not cheap at all, as befits the brand's computer line, but the concept was certainly refreshing - and now it also seems to have been successful enough at the commercial level to justify an updated successor, shown alongside Mobile Stealth Blade updated.
The new laptop Razer Will be using Intel's new Intel Core i7-8550U processor, which, combined with the graphics-Razer Core should deliver much more advanced and consistent performance with the elimination of possible bottlenecks in applications based on the use of more than two cores (which was available on Blade Stealth mobiles to date). On the mobile you will find a 13.3-inch screen with a resolution of 3,200 × 1,800 pixels with an average brightness of 400 nits, LPDDR3 memory with a volume of 16 GB with a speed of 2,133MT / s, drive SSD For 512 gigabyte storage, Wi-Fi 802.11ac connectivity based on Rivet Networks Killer hardware and software, color backlit keyboard, system Windows 10, 10 hours of battery life, 1 full-size HDMI 2.0 connection, 3.0 USB connection and of course connector Thunderbolt 3 one with a bandwidth of 40 GB per second - all in a designed black (or gray) aluminum case weighing 1.35 kilograms and a thickness of only about 13.8 millimeters.
God-Razer Core The updated V2, for its part, will benefit from a more efficient internal arrangement that will allow it to accommodate even more massive video cards (double thickness, with a maximum length of up to 30 centimeters and power consumption of up to 375W) Thunderbolt A dual 3 that can separate the designated Ethernet andUSB Its 3.0 additions to the dedicated arteries to the video card (probably using a multiplexer), so that the graphics processing will get the full potential available and will not have to "split" the bandwidth along with other means.
The external chassis includes support for most modern video cards NVIDIA And of AMD (But not theRadeon RX Vega, it seems), and includes a pair of points of illumination Chrome Self-programmable color. Our only disappointment is a price tag that remains as high as it was - $ 500 (excluding taxes) in the US, with no video card inside.
Still expensive, and still only suitable for a limited number of consumers interested in a cosmic combination between a thin and light computer and increased graphics processing power - but we are happy and welcome to continue investing in the field, and hope that the long-awaited breakthrough of interest from this audience Do you agree with us?
