When Razer acquired Nextbit in January this year, we had a feeling that they would put that acquisition to good use combining Nextbit’s smartphone engineering know-how with Razer’s own gamer twist. After just less than a year in the making, Razer unveiled their latest smartphone which may be the first decent smartphone ever produced specifically for gaming and content consumption.
The new smartphone, which Razer calls the Razer Phone, looks very similar to the Nextbit Robin, which was Nextbit’s flagship smartphone before the company was acquired by Razer. From there, Razer has made some serious enhancements to the product to make it one of the most [...]
Razer refreshed its Blade Stealth laptop with Intel’s 8th Gen quad-core mobile processors, bringing more performance while retaining battery life.
The Razer Blade Stealth laptop now uses Intel’s Core i7-8550U quad-core mobile CPU. Despite being a quad-core part, the i7-8550U has the same TDP as the previous generation dual-core mobile CPUs. This enables it to be fitted into thinner devices all the while doubling the thread count. Users can expect vastly improved multi-threaded and multi-tasking performance with excellent battery life.
Other aspects of the hardware remain unchanged. The Razer Blade Stealth still features a 13.3″ QHD IGZO [...]

Mid-2017 Razer Blade Stealth
On their systems side, Razer’s big announcement is the new Razer Blade Stealth. The biggest change for the Razer Blade Stealth is its appearance.

Looks like somebody forgot to send Sharp the memo that we’re barely getting to 4K 60Hz as they recently showed off a working IGZO 27-inch 8K 120Hz IPS monitor at CEATEC Japan. The monitor, which is still just a prototype, features a full 7,680×4,320 resolution giving it a staggering 326ppi – the same pixel density as an iPhone 6 except at 27-inches.
As this is just a prototype, it doesn’t contain Displayport 1.4 outputs, so several cables are used to feed video into the display. Even with Displayport 1.4 however, the spec only goes up to a maximum of 8K at 60Hz, so an entirely new spec would need to be released just to take advantage of [...]
