    I was waiting for Dave to review the Core and it is a very positive one I like it
    it seems that the Core lives to its name

    Yeah me too

    I don't like his reviews that much

    This review took away all doubts about getting the core. im only going to be using a 1080p monitor anyway even for AAA titles i dont think itll be as bad as with a 1440p screen

    How would you go about connecting a Razer Blackwidow Chroma to a Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core combo. I would imagine it to be difficult due to the lack of a Mic+Audio plug in the Razer Blade Stealth.
  15. SirThomasKrown

    SirThomasKrown Active Member

    Well your question doesn't make sense. The black widow chroma is a keyboard, nothing to do with mic or audio. You plug it in via USB, to either the stealth itself, or the core. Your choice. And yes the stealth does have a audio+mic jack. Also has a mic built in. You might need to just go to the actual online store and read the features again. I feel you may be confused.

    Pretty sure hes talking about the mic+audio passthrough thats on the blackwidow chroma. I personally dont use the passthrough so I dont have an issue but it is a valid question.

    Ah i see my mistake then
  18. Diblegs

    Yeah exactly, I mean I can buy a mini jack-stick splitter and put it into the Razer Blade Stealth, but I'm not sure if that would work...

    I see yeah it was my fault I missunderstood. I have the black widow Chroma TE and i dont thing that has a passthrough. So that's why it didn't make sense to me. I guess it's only on the full size black widow chroma.

    Just what the thread title says.
    First of all my 2014 Blade with 870M is still performing very well so I can't justify getting the 2016 model without it having a pascal GPU, anyway I'm really interested in the new NUC from Intel that supports the Core but I have yet to see any reviews or benchmarks for them together.
    As a stand alone unit the NUC performs pretty good but I'm looking to have the NUC and core hooked up to my TV for some living room fun!
    Any reviews will be greatly appreciated.
