VEN­OMOUS DUO

Razer Blade Stealth Gam­ing Ul­tra­book, Stargazer We­b­cam Un­veiled at CES 2016

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX -

Renowned gam­ing pe­riph­eral com­pany Razer was at CES last month to show­case its lat­est and great­est prod­ucts: the Razer Blade Stealth, and the Razer Stargazer.

The Razer Blade Stealth is a 12.5-inch gam­ing Ul­tra­book that has a thick­ness of just 13.2mm, and a feath­erlight weight of 1.24kg. It’s avail­able in two dif­fer­ent mod­els: one that comes with a QHD (2,560 x 1440) dis­play (and a choice of 128GB or 256GB PCIe SSD), and the other which comes with UHD (3,840 x 2,160) dis­play (and choice of a 256GB or 512GB PCIe SSD).

Re­gard­less of which model you choose, the Blade Stealth will be pow­ered by a 2.5GHz In­tel Core i7-6500U pro­ces­sor, In­tel HD Graph­ics 520, and 8GB of RAM. By now, you’re prob­a­bly glar­ing at its on­board graph­ics and won­der­ing what ex­actly Razer was think­ing when they de­cided to equip the Blade Stealth with an in­te­grated graph­ics pro­ces­sor.

And that’s where the Razer Core comes in – an ex­ter­nal plug-and-play desk­top graph­ics en­clo­sure that can ac­com­mo­date up to two desk­top-class graph­ics cards from ei­ther NVIDIA or AMD. And yes, the en­clo­sure is able to trans­fer its graph­i­cal power to the Blade Stealth through a Thun­der­bolt USB Type-C port.

FE­BRU­ARY 2016 The Razer Stargazer, mean­while, is pretty much a we­b­cam on steroids. It’s pow­ered by In­tel’s RealSense SR300 cam­era, which is ca­pa­ble of cap­tur­ing 720p videos at a silky-smooth 60 fps, or 1080p videos at 30 fps. It’s able to trans­mit your voice in crys­tal-clear clar­ity too, thanks to its dual-ar­ray mi­cro­phone that comes with an au­to­matic noise-can­cel­la­tion fea­ture.

The fact that the Stargazer re­lies on an In­tel RealSense cam­era for all its imag­ing needs also means that you’ll be able to use it for face and ob­ject 3D scan­ning as well. If you’re not into such com­plex­i­ties, es, you can al­ways use the Stargazer for Mi­crosoft’s ft’s Win­dows Hello bio­met­ric au­then­ti­ca­tio­n­ion sys­tem in­stead,ead, as its fa­cial and ges­ture e recog­ni­tion sys­tem can track up to 78 fa­cial cial points and up to 22 points for or each of your hands.ds.
