Gaming Laptop Analysis
Is the Razer Blade Stealth 13 2020 i7-1065G7 GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 16GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Not for gaming
Processor - This laptop has a weak CPU, using the Core i7-1065G7 4-Core 1.30GHz processor. There are lots of better options on the market for gaming processors, however you may get this to run very old games, but don’t get this if you are after a gaming laptop. Modern AAA gaming uses CPU cores for simultaneous processing activities and increases game performance. The processor we find in the laptop here has 4 cores. This is a good number of cores for modern gaming.
Graphics Card - This laptop has a weak graphics solution in it with the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile. There are lots of better gaming graphics card choices and this is not a good gamers laptop choice. Some AAA games can use a lot of VRAM. This laptop GPU comes with 4GB of VRAM, which isnt a lot by today’s standards. And while it is OK, the VRAM may start to cause a bit of a problem in future AAA games.
System Memory - A laptop with 16GB of system memory, like this laptop, makes it an excellent amount of RAM for the AAA gaming needs of 2021 and into the future.
Screen Size - The 13.3" screen size is an OK panel for 2021. It makes it more portable, due to its smaller, lighter physical footprint, but this often means less visual real estate to display the games and therefore more squinting in games at their menus and hover over text. Our gaming laptop screen size of choice would be a 17 inch. But that's because we focus on gaming over portability and the bigger you go, the less portable your laptop becomes. In our minds, whether you are carrying a smaller 1.5 or larger 3.5Kg laptop with you, it's always going to be a lump and we would rather see the games better when we arrive. But that choice is not going to be for everyone.
Refresh Rate - A gaming laptop wants to have a higher refresh rate to accommodate more frames per second(FPS) in the games it runs. The refresh rate is like a hard cap on the games deliverable FPS. The better the refresh rate the more FPS the laptop can deliver in games, up to the panels refresh rate hertz, and then the sharper the in game play is when the player moves about. The top panel refresh rate for this laptop is 60Hz which is ok but not really your first choice, if you want a good gaming laptop. Look for panels that we mark as good or excellent if you think this laptop hardware can get higher than 60FPS on most modern games.
