    I've got it up and running again.
    Disabled the ethernet, and reinstalled nvidia drivers from Razer Core Support page.
    Seems to be working just fine now, other than Forza Apex, but it seems like a Forza problem, because everything else seems to be working fine.

    Good to hear, also do you think you could benchmark some CPU intensive and GPU intensive games?

    From what I read here, performance all depends on whether the game is more CPU or GPU oriented.

    That is absolutely true. I can't play GTA on 4k with my RBS and Core(GTX 980). I mean I can, but I don't get close enough to 60fps to play comfortably. If I'm at 2k, then I don't really have a problem. Other games like CIV, and Racing Simulators(Other than Forza Apex) I can play at max settings on 4k, using only that setup, no external monitor.

    Good to hear my friend. So it was just because you had ether net and wifi going? Im so confused.

    Glad im finding out about all this before i was able to buy the core...so is it still worth my $$$ IYO?? Im new to pc gaming, so i fear i have to ask...
    I hope so seeing how i splurged on the top tier, decked out Stealth

    if you are new to pc gaming and want a great laptop for it and don't want to have to worry about the core, just get the razer blade 14 inch. I've had mine for around 4 days now, and its powered through everything I've thrown at it. Max csgo at 200 fps max Minecraft at 150-300 fps and max tf2 at whatever ungodly high number it was. Thee difference between the blade and the stealth is that the blade has a dedicated gpu, its a mobile 970m, but as of now it is still plenty enough to power through most modern games at max settings and 60 fps.

    The blade is 100% worth your money. Imaging having a powerful rig with a 970 gpu in it, now take away only 10% of the performance, and make it into a laptop with almost 6 hours of battery life and an amazing construction, and that's the Blade 14"

    Question for you, now that you have the Blade 14", will you also buy the core? Just curious.

    Maybe in a few years, but for now the dedicated 970m is plenty good for me. The core and a graphics card would also set me back around another grand together.

    Considering my old pc ran Minecraft at 15 fps on minimal settings, this is a huge improvement.

    Ok. thanks for the reply.

    I am curious to see anyone with the Blade 14 2016 will be buying the Core. Will it be that much of a benefit.

    laptop wont get heat if you using it with core, that's the best thing for me and of course the benefit of using desktop graphic

    I think so. I'll have more videos, the more I use the setup. I love the RBS for all that is, and all that it is not. I've had that since February. Battery life is what I expected, and the productivity is amazing. Give me a week or so with the Core setup, and I'll be back with more.

    I do love my 4k stealth, just hoping the Core and the R9 Nano i bought makes the whole investment worthwhile. Appreciate the info!

    From the looks of benchmarks, as long as you use an external monitor, you should see a great difference. That being said, the CPU will be a problem with more CPU intense programs or games.

    Good to hear your problem had been solved. and little wondering stealth+core with high-end card can handle some graphics intensive games in 4K resolution... I thought it can't handle them in 4K but thankfully it's wrong. again, thanks for your detailed review.

    It's not as detailed as some reviewers out there(not on the Core, just in general), but I do try to answer questions as soon as possible and as detailed as possible.

    Isn't that game still in the beta phase?
  16. TyMcLean

    Yes, that's why I said I'm pretty sure it's a Forza problem and not a Core/Nvidia problem.

  17. I'm having the Wifi issue, too, and I can't seem to work around it. I mean, the Core works if I disable WiFi, but that's not really much of a solution.

    I can't change the adapter priorities or metrics, and apparently that's a wide issue in Windows 10; they've essentially removed that functionality, I guess? I'm a little out of my depth, but whatever it is, it's bad news.

    Change your wifi to 5ghz. Fixes the problem right away.
  19. Oh my god, it works!! Thanks so much! That's a pretty solid workaround.

    Hopefully Razer will figure this out, though, because that shouldn't really be necessary.

    No problem mate! I was losing my mind when I first got my core! I totally understand
