  1. Hi, I hope that anyone could help me, I'm searching for a razer laptop to use for work and gaming, I am a industrial designer but actually work like a graphic designer, The programs that I plan to used is photoshop, illustrator, indesign, rhino, octane, sketchbook pro and maybe after effects and premiere.

    I was thinking that I will buy a razer blade stealth 13" with a core and a 1080 gtx. I feel this set could work but I'm not sure, any comment or opinion is a lot of help to me.

    P.S. I want to play some games like Bayonetta, Nier, Gears of war 4 and some other new games

    Thank's

    With most of your work loads and most likely all your gaming, if you want the blade your probably gonna want to get the Core and a good GPU. If your willing to spend the extra money, which you'd you'd have to spend on the core and gpu anyways, you can just go up to the regular 14 inch Blade. With the core setup has a couple compromises, one of the biggest being the lack of portability. So if your ok with that, then go for it, but at that price you might as well just go a little further and get the 1080 Blade pro
     
  3. Hi and thank's for your opinion, let me explain a little more and make you some questions hehehe My principal idea is to get the Razer blade stealth because I like more the size of the stealth than the regular 14 inch blade, that's one point, the other point is the trackpad don't like me to much in the regular razer but my doubt is if the core setup could be better than regular blade and if the core setup (with 1080 gtx) could have a very good performance on gaming and renders ( I only want to play and do renders in my home ) so the fact of portability is not a problem because I only use Photoshop, illustrator, indesign, sketchbook pro and some rhino things so I want to know your answers again about this theme with this other things that I mention

    P.S. tell me other compromises or things that you know about the core setup please

    You should wait for the next iteration of the stealth, It will most probably come with a quad-core CPU of the new coffe lake ones.
     
  5. Do you know moreless when Razer release the new systems ?

    Don't know but I believe should be around Q1 2018, so in 3~4 months we could have one of those. More than guessing an exact date, I usually try to guess upper bounds on which date would be the limit for something new to be released. So between now and February there should be a new stealth.
     
  7. yes, I think this could be a good option, thank's

    Sorry if this is unrelated, but do you guys think that the sales and free stuff included with a purchase of the stealth and other models of the blade show that razer is trying to empty their stock in preparation of updating the computer. And if so would you guys suggest waiting it out for the next updated model to arrive or to get the current one and hope that it updates at least 6-7 months later so as to not have buyers remorse.

    They always do the gifts...well often, that what i like from Razer and also one reason for me always buying things from them.

    I know they always have gifts but usually they change it up once the period that they were offering it ends and in terms of all of the models, the gifts have seemed to not only be extended from the time but also increased in the terms of what was included. For example in regards to the stealth, they first started with just the sleeve and after that period ended they had the sleeve and the headphones and even though that was supposed to end they extended it without giving an end date as to how long that extension would last. That’s the only reason why this one seems sort of strange but I might just be overthinking it cause razer’s always been cool about stuff like that, but let me know what you guys think.

    You don't use SolidWorks for 3D modeling? I'm an Industrial Designer myself and use SolidWorks. I've been eyeing the stealth too for it's portability. The only thing that's turned me off was the fact that all ultrabooks are currently dual core. I use SoildWorks heavily and it takes a decent processor and RAM to use especially if you have some large assembly files. The integrated graphics isn't that much of a big deal for 3D modeling but could have some out of memory issues with photoshop or illustrator (hense the need for the core and a good GPU). I'm waiting to see them launch either a quad i7 or (when AMD releases it) a quad Raven Ridge CPU/GPU. Your best bet right now is probably to spend what you would on the stealth + core and GPU and just get the Blade. It will be a little bigger and a little more heavy but will have decent power to not have much if any lag in photoshop/illustrator or any modeling software. It also won't tie you down to just doing renders at home do to the dedicated graphics card inside like the stealth and core would.

    as a designer myself, if you do all your work on the go, razer is great and overkill for the price point and just perfect.... trade in portablity for performance and you will not regret it. However, if you do work from home and only do light-work consider getting a cheaper version and a workstation along ... but hey thats me.

    @Reon2211 Yeah most people nailed it here in the thread mate. Quad core for the CPU power, and a decent card = Blade 14. I have the RBS 12.5 and a core on the way. It'll be nice to fiddle into areas that requires the strength of the gpu to be present like some gaming but as far as graphic designing, You are gonna need the quad core. I can't iterate that enough. Just like some games, its not all about the GPU as some are CPU dependent as well. If you dont need the GPU on-the-go, light work for graphics detail. RBS would suite you just fine. However It is a tad bit more expensive in the path vs the Blade 14 on its own. So price point Blade 14 still wins. But its up to you!

    Personally I'll be buying a Blade 14? if they still make the size for the Coffee lakes architecture with 6 cores and I imagine that would bump up the RBS to a quad core. They are releasing it to the first ultrabooks this month!

    Now if you are going the RBS route. I have a core on the way, and Nvidia is releasing the 1070 TI later this month. I believe this will be perfect for the core. As you also have to remember because of the bottleneck issue with the RBS/core is that you'll get about 85% or so performance out of the the GPU of choice. So spending that money on the 1080 might not be so promising but a great compomise for the 1070 TI the in between of the 1070 to 1080.

    Hope it helps! :)

    Bayonetta doesn’t need the core for me at least just played it on 1080p on medium setting 620 is enough not PS4 smooth kind like PS3 experience, but for Nier and GoW 4 yes you need the core and GPU, I think 1080 is to overpower for the CPU, 7500U, I would buy 1070 or like @surfer0625 said 1070ti for it.
