    Are you looking forward to Nvidia Pascal? Personally im really looking forward to the 1080 and how it will outmatch the titan x. Maxwell was good but Pascal will be much better and cheaper.

    Yeah!! Can't wait

    I'm curious if the 1080 will work in the core. I can't wait to see some benchmarks.

    It will, although of course it will be bottlenecked by the CPU if you have a Stealth.

    I do have a stealth, I'm ok with it not reaching it's full potential, my philosophy is more power! Or something like that.

    I'm considering building a new computer, pretty excited for pascal overall
     
  7. I was gonna buy the gtx 970 with my core when it ships at the end of this month, but i will hold off for the 1070 and i'm ok if it will never reach it's full potential because my stealth and my core will be my primary gaming rig without an external monitor when i go back to school in august!

    you are assuming the core will be out by then..lol

    I'd love to know, too. I especially would like to know how the GTX 1080 will perform in terms of VR and the new Physx features built into the GPU when using the core and a normal Razer Blade (2016 of course, and not Stealth). My understanding is that the Razer Core's bandwidth (through Thunderbolt 3) is equivalent to about four lanes of PCIe 3 whereas many desktops today interface with the video card using about 16 lanes. I plan on using this for VR and have not jumped the gun on the purchase yet because I'm concerned about this. If someone would clarify this for me, and I do understand that the 1080 may not have driver support which is fine, I would jump the gun. What I want to know for sure is that bandwidth will not be a severe limitation in terms of the GTX 1080 GPU.

    Will probably have to wait until someone actually gets their hands on the core, may probably be by the time people start getting the 1080s.

    I'm kind of glad the core was delayed as well. My original plan was to get a 980ti, now my plan is to get the 1080.

    supposedly the 1080 had alot of components designed with vr in mind, so it should be a beast when it comes to vr and rendering.

    And that's what I really love about the card. Nvidia was so responsive to our VR needs. I'm very interested in the core, but only if it enables me to take advantage of the 1080's considerable capabilities. I have a hunch that it may not be able to, but if we could get even 90% of the card's performance, I'd be fine with that. I'm particularly interested in knowing how it will handle Physx in VR as that seems to be something that may saturate the Core setup's PCIe lanes.
     
  14. Pascal is a beast. This'll be a good time to retire my old gtx 660.

    Pretty nuts right guys? Twice as fast as a Titan X at almost half the cost. They were talking about how even the 1070 > Titan X in performance too, wow. The leap is just insane.

    Now the ball's in AMD's court. I wonder if Polaris will be better for laptops/ultrabooks in terms of power efficiency, being based on 14nm tech versus 16nm like the GTX 1000-series. Maybe Nvidia has won the battle of power, but perhaps AMD will win in efficiency? Even though gaming on a laptop always means dismal battery life anyway.

    yeah it is really interesting since it didn't seem like the new generation of cpu's was THAT much better than the previous, but with these gpu's the leap is insane. And while the new cpu's didn't seem to be drastically superior the new stuff they are going to be able to do will be really cool to see as well. For instance, the greenscreen tech in the Stargazer uses the new generation of intel processors to do all that stuff.

    For those interested in the follow-up to my earlier question, it appears that there's a very, and I mean very, minimal loss in performance between a PCIe 4 lane and a 16 lane slot, which should mean that the core should be fine, since Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth is pretty much equivalent to a 4 lane slot. I'm still interested to see how the 1080 in particular runs on the core. If no one posts it, then I will once I get a 1080 and a Razer Core, which shouldn't be terribly far away. If anyone else has anymore information, please post your findings and share with us. My findings were that with existing cards, the performance loss should be less than 5%, but then again the GTX 1080 is far from being just another card.

    I feel like this whole pascal super razer with the core is going to make me go broke. If only I could make money off the Internet. So then I don't have to leave my house.

    I am on the fence about which GPU to buy. I could get a GTX 1070 on June 10th, the day it comes out. Or I could wait until later July and use birthday money to help soak up the cost of a GTX 1080.
