How to put a Octa core processor in Razer Blade Stealth

Discussion in 'Systems' started by Rain464, Mar 15, 2017.


Do you want a Quad(4) core CPU or a Octa(8) core CPU in RBS? (if you don't mind battery life)

  1. A Quad core CPU

  2. An Octa core CPU

  3. The Dual core CPU is enough for me

  4. I just don't care

  5. Put an Intel core i7 K with Nvidia GTX Titan Z (and over cloacking for sure) !!!

  6. Off course an Intel Atom processor with Intel HD graphics (as bad as possible)

  7. A Hexa core CPU

  1. Razer blade stealth is meant to give you fast performance when your outside. But when your at home/office, just connect the Razer Core and do all your job smoothly. But it has a potential problem.

    The Intel core i7 U is a dual core processor with Intel Iris 620. That doesn't suit up with a Nvidia GTX 1080. Cause a dual core processor isn't meant to do that. So people are screaming for a Quad core CPU (like i7 HQ).

    My thoughts :
    A quad core might not be the best choice for desktop replacement PC (as with the Core). So better opt for an Octa core processor, right ?

    Well, yeah. Intel i7-k (kaby lake) has TDP of 91W. And the current i7-U (also kaby lake) has TDP of 15W.
    This clearly explains why having an Octa core processor will cost so much battery, heat and malfunctioning.

    But how about this, when not using for intense work, we turn off four cores out of the eight cores and undervolt them. When you connect the Core, all the cores kick up and you have your desktop PC performance. But we'll need a better thermal design for maintaining that heat.

    This idea might sound totally illogical or stupid, but I believe if Razer can pull this off, the whole idea of the RBS will turn into reality. (I'm looking for your ideas too!)

    Disco chroma lights, coffee warmer, i7, dual titan 10 series overlock everything, subwoofer, little USB razer cannon that shoots razer branded cannon balls. All of which culminates to a battery life of roughly 15 minutes.

    I'd buy it.

    You don't care about the battery life,do ya?

    I think in all my life i have used a laptop on battery once. Usually its just an ultra-portable computer to move from outlet to outlet. Wanna play a game or watch a movie in bed, computer and cable. Play a game while watching TV on the couch... computer and cable.

    First off they can´t put in a octa core if they even can´t put in a quad core. Intel has to release a quad core with lower TDP. It´s not that Razer don´t want to put in a quad core CPU. It´s just that the stealth is a Ultrabook and there is no Ultrabook with a i5-/i7-quad core cpu.

    Maybe a Razer Blade 14" without a graphics chip? And maybe even an option to bundle that with a Razer Core?
  7. The thing is, the CPU in laptops always runs, and drains the power. If you don't keep the half of the CPU running i.e. using undervolted quad core CPU, it should consume less power. And quad core means eight threads too. Same with the GPU, but I don't think a dGPU will be necessary.

    Oh rly?
    Throttling a 91W CPU down to 15W? I do not think it is possible.
    The sole heatpipe is going to be as heavy as the current version of RBS.

    Oh okay now I get you. But why wouldn't the companies think of that? Don't you think that it is not effective enough to do this or just not possible because of the CPU designs.

    You can't put better CPU into small laptop or subnetbook/ultrabook or whatever it is. The biggest problem - HEATING, and insufficient cooling system. Even the i7-6500U Blade Stealth on stress test reached over 80C on CPU and over 90 on iGPU. Even if you install a lot better cooling system - laptop will never have its 13mm thickness.

    Throttling... the biggest issue of today notebooks - especially in gaming. Better have lower TDP CPU, but capable of working 100% for a few hours with the same clocks, than some hexa/octa core CPU with high TCP, that is unstable because of throttling.
  11. Yeah, I know its quite impossible. But still, if Rzer can pull this off ..... you konw

    I mean Intel could create a T series mobile processor which is quad core for mobile computing rather than allowing manufacturers to change the TDP of the U series to 28 Watts.

    Is there even a i7 8 core processor for laptops? Let alone a 8 core for kaby lake processors.
  14. Intel i7 kaby lake k (unlocked) is an Octa core processor with 91w TDP. It's mainly for desktop, not for laptops.

    Why we need such big powerful cpu is that when you connect the core and transform it into a desktop, you will use it like a desktop, not laptop. Those people who do put pressure on the processor, quad core will disappoint them. This is my opinion though. Others may disagree.

    Its not. Its a quad core with 8 threads.
  16. Then AMD Ryzen 7 1700 can be used. It's an Octa core, 65w TDP but with 3 ghtz speed.
    So I guess it's not bad for multi tasking.

    I thought the ryzen chips didn't come with intergrated graphics. So would they just add a cheap card in to it?

    You should know that more cores does not generally means faster speed. And in the first place, Ryzen 7 1700 is a desktop processor not a laptop processor.
  19. I don't think it has integrated GPU. They might add a dedicated Vega graphics.

    Yes, I know that.
    But more cores can help you to do more stuff at a time. It does not increase speed all the time. Because you may not need to do all the stuffs at a time. That case, the cloak speed is to be considered.

    And AMD hasn't released any mobile version of their Ryzen CPU. But it is estimated to be released in the second half of the year. I guess I'll be alright with a Quad or Hexa core processor though.

    You reasoning feels like its all over the place......

    If they would add in a dedicated graphic, it would no longer be a ultra book anymore
