This year was the first time we brought on a hardware partner for the Intel® Level Up Game Dev Contest. When we started the search for an OEM partner we were looking for a brand that is strong amongst gamers and game developers who had an exciting new system that utilizes Intel® Core™ i7 and Intel Graphics. Razer, and their new Blade Stealth represents that perfect storm of what we needed for the contest.
Up front, Razer provided systems for us to showcase the 2015 contest winners who were helping to announce the 2016 contest at GDC back in March.
The Stealth comes with either a QHD or UHD (4k) touch screen panel, Intel® Core™ i7-6500U and Intel® HD Graphics 520. Beyond that, the Thunderbolt 3 support allows for utilizing a Razer Core external graphics dock (you can actually dock all your peripherals, network and power, resulting a “1 cable” solution).
In alignment with our contest and game dev program mission to help game devs be more successful - as part of the contest, all 10 winners will receive their own Razer Blade Stealth to develop and showcase their games on.
If you would like to get one for yourself, Razer is running a limited time offer which is in limited supply for up to $150 off a Razer Blade Stealth!
