    100% Adobe RGB is never done before in this small sized laptop. It would be beautiful when I'm editing my photos, videos and presentations.

    QHD is just better because UHD just think about the battery. It will get ripped so you need to get a new one :x

  3. QHD should be enough. Gonna need that battery life.

    was originally going for QHD... then cancelled order to grab the UHD... now i saw they had a ship now on QHD... totally cancelling the UHD for the QHD. The shipping and the fact Razer has been soo mums about the battery life has me worried. There are some folks in the main stealth and core thread taht say the UHD has beatiful display.

    I think the UHD one is better because it has 100% Adobe RGB.

    It looks like QHD is winning in the polls. Probably because most of us understand that a dual core i7 with a single GPU is not going to be enough to drive most new FPS games at max settings on a 4K display.

    I personally think 1440P is a stretch.

    We already have to deal with the dual core bottleneck. It makes no sense to add another bottleneck.......unless you are not really gaming.

    I'm going with UHD, just because of the perfect downscaling to 1080p.

    Honestly... I'm a tad bit disappointed that the Razer Blade Stealth doesn't just come with a FHD (1080p) display; it would be a perfect match - affordable and longer battery life.

    Can you elaborate on what that means?

    1080p is exactly 1/4 the resolution of 4K. Therefore, when I scale down to 1080p on a 4K monitor, every 4 pixels (square) becomes 1 pixel (square). Does that help?

    He probably means this people will drop down the resolution for gaming and videos:

    UHD = 4K = 3840 x 2160

    Full HD = 1080p = 1920 x 1080

    If you divide the UHD panel pixel dimensions by 2, you get exactly 1920 x 1080
  13. definitely going for the QHD one for longer battery life during classes...

    Mine is at FedEx for a tomorrow delivery!!! YaaaaY!!!

    The real reason to ger UHD (3840x2160) is to perfectly downscale to FHD (1920x1080) for gaming. Battery life will hurt though :slightly_sad:

    Battery sustain is prob a big factor, if you're plugging in you rlaptop for extensive use might as well get a nice desktop and a travelling laptop at that price range

    Sorry to respond late. I just read your response.
    That makes sense for games like World of Warcraft or LoL. Even 970GTX SLI is too weak for most FPS at 2560x1440.
    Titan X 2-Way SLI is just right for 1440P at max settings.

    What is your 3D Mark score for Fire Strike Ultra?

    I'm so excited, my Razer Blade Stealth is on the FedEx truck for delivery!! I hope I don't have any stuck or dead pixels.............

    Never really benchmarked it, but I was playing CS:GO and GTA 4 at 4k, skyrim, etc.

    Thanks! Does it affect anything adversely by having a display that cannot downscale perfectly like that? What happens in the case of the QHD?

    Oh ok. That makes sense for the games you play. Games like Far Cry 4, GTAV, Just Cause 3, Star Wars BF, Titan Fall, Crysis 3 etc.... maxed out at 2K really push current tech.

    I also have a Corsair setup with 980TI Hybrid SLI which performs similar. So I have a good idea of what it takes to drive the latest games.
    Outside of StarCraft 2, today's games are poorly optimized on PC compared to how the same game runs on a console.

    Having to go from 4K(native) to 1080P on a 4K screen may be a solution for some. From what I've seen, doing so causes the image to look washed out.

    My money is on the resolution that affords the least amount of compromises, and still looks good at a decent amount of frames per second.
