Razer Blade Stealth 13; A Gaming Laptop Without A Discrete GPU?!

Can Iris Flourish All By It’s Self?

The Ice lake i7-1065G7​ powered Razer Blade Stealth 13 usually comes with a GTX 1650 but the Mercury White model which Kitguru reviewed depends solely on the Iris Plus graphics on the Intel chip.  The benefit is a lighter bag, as the laptop only weighs 1.36kg (2.99lbs) and uses a 65W USB C power connector as opposed to weighing up to 1.48kg with a 100W charger to haul around.

The real question is if Intel’s new integrated graphics will deliver the same impressive performance we have seen in benchmarks when in a small laptop.  The tests show this gaming laptop will work for a huge amount of people as not only does it handle popular eSports titles like LOL and CS:GO but you can get a reasonable experience from Overwatch at medium settings. This is an interesting compromise between gaming and reasonable portability and price.

It might lack a dedicated GPU but the Intel Iris graphics should still pack a reasonable punch. Is this the perfect blend of gaming laptop and portable ultrabook or is the £1499.99 asking price too steep?
