The white version replaces the entry level model at a slightly higher price — $1,500 rather than $1,400 (based on current pricing, that means it’ll probably run £1,400 and AU$2,549 in the UK and Australia) — and like all the refreshed models gets a boost to 16GB RAM and includes the same factory-calibrated sRGB displays as before. Razer says the Iris Plus integrated graphics in the i7-1068G7 chip deliver performance about on par with that of the MX150 it incorporated into the previous higher-end models. Razer runs the CPU at the full 25 watts, not stepped down as we’ll see in some systems.
If you’ve been following, this qualifies thanks to a claimed battery-life boost to about 10 hours, up from our tested 6.8 hours. Now it even looks more like a than before.
The two higher-end models, one with a 1080p display and the other with a 4K touch display, both have 512GB SSD; previously, only the 4K model did. As mentioned earlier, they incorporate the GTX 1650, which performs roughly the same as the GTX 1060 — so definitely a graphics step up from the old MX150, though still only occasionally capable of reaching 60fps or more in 1080p. The middle model will run $1,800 ($100 more than before) and the top model $2,000. Based on current pricing, they’ll probably cost £1,600/£1,800 and AU$2,879/$3,399.
All of them are slated to ship by the end of September.
