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