    off topic i noticed that during a recent update my dell xps 13 had a bios update as well...got a lil excited then realized they would have to get a core to do any sort of testing to make it compatible :{

    Is the Core price listed here American or Australian dollars? There is a pretty serious difference and it'd be nice to know beforehand.

    Lol, no offense but it's obviously USD, why would they list anything here as Australian dollars? It's not an Australian site...

    Haha, it better be, Razer won a lot of media attention due to this product and subsequently it caught a lot of flak in this thread regarding the price - if the build isn't top notch then Razer can expect a pretty huge backlash.

    Oh yeah it was just assembled wrong. I explained in the other thread regarding the issue, but basically there's a T-shaped plastic bit on the inside of the cover that fits into a slot on the board to keep it shut in place of the screws which the 14" blade has. If you don't like it up properly then the plastic bit will not go in and it will make the bottom bulge out like that.

    Yeah I was sure that was the case but can always hope for the best.
  16. Any news yet on whether or not the Core will support the GTX 1080? The list of compatible graphics cards hasn't changed after the announcement of the GTX 1080/1070, and I have already seen reviews of the GTX 1080 from several news outlets. I would assume that Razer was also able to get ahold of a review unit, since they worked closely with NVIDIA to develop the Core.

    I really hope that it's compatible. the 1080 is going to be my graphics card of choice. It should put the new razer blade and blade stealth in a realm of their own.

    I'm planning, like most here I'd bet, to grab a 1080 gtx, when they come out.

    It would be great if we could get an update from someone at Razer so address whether this setup (1080 gtx + Core) will work together (drivers and all) on release day. I'm assuming it will, but it would be nice to hear something official.

    Why would it NOT be compatible? As long as Nvidia releases the drivers (not for the Core, for the 1080) and it fits (it will) and it doesn't consume too much power (it won't), it will work just fine.

    It needs more than basic drivers to work properly with the Core, it needs a driver that specifically supports Intel's detachable graphics.
