    The first and last one is same user, I hope there’s not cpu throttling difference score, since cpu score is quite big different, I hope it is different Fans profiles like low and high performance.
    Btw, your RBP (around this right?) is only beaten by physical score, graphics still better, for gaming the important one is graphic score. My Blade 14 and Core setting is also score around same with your RBP, in my case there’s TB3 Bandwidth beside cpu bottleneck playing around, but on real gaming performance it’ll outperform gtx 1080.

    I know, that the graphics score is a quite important factor for gaming. Nevertheless, in overall comparison, the Blade is better than the Blade Pro for gaming. 60Hz 4K screen with 20% higher graphics score, but lower CPU score is not as good as FHD with 144Hz in the Blade. Not talking about the quality issues of the RBP at all..

    I see, your CPU 7820HK score should actually not so far lower but any laptop with 8750H will slightly outperform 7820HK because of extra cores, maybe Razer lock 7820HK for thermal reasons, physical score should be like this, on evga laptop that has better cooling room.

    Has anyone seen pictures of the power supplies? Seems like two variants, one thing I love about the previous gen was the slim form factor. I'd like to see the pictures of the new ones before pulling the trigger.

    Uh, seems you aren’t lucky. I just saw this. Congrats to anyone that got it for that steal price though.
     
  7. I was able to get one from Razer late Tuesday night so all good. Should be here by next Thursday. 8 days from Hong Kong

    Has anyone seen the specs of the power adapter anywhere? I'm curious to know the size of it

    I ordered the 144Hz blade 15 at Midnight before the email announcement even arrived. They said they’d ship it the next day but it took two. And then they put the customs code for a laptop with a description of Razer Blade. The description should have been laptop. So they screwed up the customs forms, didn’t respond to customs when customs called them and my Blade got delayed all day. After 12 hours of no response customs Called me to ask me if I had a box of Razor blades or a laptop.

    Oh and the laptop code was wrong too. They were supposed to use the laptop code for a laptop that doesn’t have an optical drive with a laser.

    So they filled out the customs paperwork wrong and now I’ll be waiting two days longer than Razer promised.

    Best Buy reached out to me and told me that I will still receive the 1070 model at that price. The only thing is it won't ship by June 12th because of their blunder. Rep gave me a case number, and also said that if I receive the 1060 that I should return it and they'll expedite the 1070 variant at no extra charge.

    Haha that's actually my thread! Best Buy reached out to me this morning and told me I will still receive the 1070, but there will be a delay most likely. If I get shipped a 1060 variant, they told me to return it and the 1070 will be expedited at no extra cost

    For everyone else, just call in. They can see your order vs the new listing.

    Actually it's small because there's only a handful of us dumb enough to drop this kind of cash on Razer despite all of their customer service and reliability issues with blade laptops.

    After reading the customs issue on the previous page I'm tempted to cancel my preorder. I don't get how an organization like razer which charges a premium on product can get customer service and the shopping experience so wrong.

    Luckily for us US customers, there are other options like Best Buy and Amazon. They offer much better customer service and warranties. I've read too many horror stories in /r/razer to know it's not worth the hassle buying straight from Razer.

    Oh yeah the store is a whole nother beast. I guess we're all hoping the reliability will be good

    Do you think that thermals will be much more improved? Currently have last year's blade, and it heats up even when playing low-end games.

    Update on my Best Buy order. They called me again this evening and told me that the previous rep was wrong. Because they don't have the 1070 in their inventory, they can't even fulfill my original order if they wanted to. So looks like I will be receiving the 144hz/1060GB/512GB variant. All is not lost though! The rep apologized many times for the inconvenience, and said that I will still receive expedited shipping for my order and they will issue out a $50 ecard.

  16. Exactly what I expected them to do and why I cancelled my order since I wanted the 1070

    Will have to wait for the next wave :T I may end up cancelling as well. Already have the 1060 blade from last year.

    Moderate usage, WiFi on surfing, media consumption 15 minutes seems took 6%, well on that usage around 4 hours according user on Notebook Review. With a tweak I think it can go 5 to 6 hours.

    I ordered a blade 15 1070 Tuesday night but the order was cancelled. Razers said I need to prove the credit card is mine, and they will check within 48hours. Okay, I giver them all the information then they told me they though my identification was compromised and told me to send them my class schedule, my school and something like that and it will cost another 48hours. Why buying a laptop directly from razer so troublesome? I bought many things in Amazon and everything goes smooth, if Amazon have the laptop in stock I will definitely not buy it through the official website
