Razer is holding its virtual RazerCon today, and it’s using the event to announce some new products.

Both models will have the new 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor inside. The processor can run at a clock speed of 2.8GHz or as fast as 4.7GHz in Turbo mode. Both also have the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 TI graphics chip, with 4GB of video RAM. Both will also have 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD storage drive. The drive is upgradable so you can put in up to a 2TB SSD if you want.
While one model will retain the 13.3-inch Full HD 120Hz display released in early versions of the notebook, a new model will include a 13.3-inch OLED Full HD touchscreen display. Razer says this will appeal to owners who want brighter images and darker contrast ratios while viewing images.
The new models will also include THX Spatial Audio support. This should allow gamers to have a more immersive experience when they hear audio from the laptop’s four upward-facing speakers. The Razer Blade Stealth 13 will also include two Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports that also serve as power ports and two USB-A ports. It will also have Wi-Fi 6 wireless hardware support.
The two new Razer Blade Stealth 13 notebooks will go on sale later in October. The 120Hz display version will be priced at $1,799, while the OLED model will have a price of $1,999.
More new Razer products include a gaming chair and PC cases
Razer also revealed some other new products during RazerCon. The new Razer Iskur is the company’s first-ever gaming chair. It’s covered in a multi-layered synthetic leather to help withstand hours of use. Its lumbar support solution cradles the entire mid to lower spine, so gamers can have a neutral spine position while sitting in the chair. The lumbar support is also customizable. The top of the chair includes a memory foam cushion for the head, and the armrests can be adjusted for the best position for a gamer’s wrist and forearms.
The Razer Iskur goes on sale today at the company’s web site for $499.
PC gamers who like to build their own rigs might be interested in their new Tomahawk PC chassis. They come in ATX mid-tower and Mini-ITX desktop models. Both include tempered glass rear-hinged swivel side panels for easy access to the inside of the cases. Both also have support for built-in cable management. Finally, they support Razer’s custom Chroma RGB lights on the bottom. The ATX case is priced at $199 while the Mini-ITX is priced at $179. Both will be released today at the company’s web site.
Speaking of the Razer Chroma RGB lighting system, the company announced that WD Black, Seagate Gaming, Yeelight, and Twinkly have been added to its Razer Chroma Connect program. Over 50 hardware companies now make products that use Razer Chroma RGB lights. In addition, Razer has partnered with ASRock to launch the first Razer Edition motherboards. They will have native Razer Chroma RGB support, so PC makers can sync them with other Chroma devices. Twinkly is also launching Christmas tree lights that support Chroma RGB.
