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.

Low-code platform Airkit designed to improve customer engagement announced today that it is coming out of stealth and that it has already raised $28 million since it was created in late 2017. The funding was raised from investors Accel, Emergence Capital, and Salesforce Ventures.

Ehikian says that Airkit solves three problems: companies having a lot of customer data which sit in disparate sillos and which dont talk to another, the challenges of building an end-to-end digital experience, and delivering those experiences across any conversation channel. 

Airkit is also developing pre-built components with templates for the most common customer workflows and offers a theme builder.
