    Soooo...anyone have any guesses as to what the Core V2 will entail? It's currently referenced on the Razer store, in bundles with the Stealth. Thinking might be a press release at some point today since they already put it up in some places.

    I'm guessing it'll be large enough to house the GTX 1080, and will probably have different looks and lighting. I have no idea.

    Current Core is plenty big enough for a 1080 though, so that wouldn't be different.

    Maybe a remake of the first version, but i actually have no idea what it is.

    Ya I saw that too yesterday, I wasn't sure if it was an accident/typo. Here's a screenshot for others to see:

    I had heard otherwise on the forums. Do you have one?

    Didn't realize it was up since yesterday. I'm not sure how it could possibly be a typo though - unless they were meaning to say "Includes The New Razer Blade Stealth and BlackWidow V2" or something, but the price would make no sense and they don't really have any bundles with just a laptop and one keyboard.

    I do. Have actually had two different 1080 cards and both have fit - but I guess some manufacturers have made really huge heatsinks and some don't fit.

    That does look like a typo. I just don't know.

    My 2 cents on design updates they may be doing

    As you said, fitting non-standard graphics cards. Likely a redesign to support not necessarily larger cards but cards with liquid cool functionality. Or capability to add it. I know some have had issues with graphics cards in general (Not just the 1080) with the various tubes and such associated, having to cut the Core V1 to fit the tubes, having to put the heatsinks on the outside of the Core V1.

    Redesign for multiple GPU's, unlikely but it could be a further implementation of this, sort of goes with the above on larger or odd shaped cards

    Could also be an implementation of newer connectivity technology allowing us higher or more consistent bandwidth between the Razer/Razer Blade/Razer Blade Stealth or heck, even the new Project computer (3 screen) allowing upgradability on the graphics.

    They also could be adding a cupholder...

    Hopefully its not a typo. It would be sweet for them to release a new Core with a couple new features and that fixes all the problems people were having on the current core. Hopefully a bit more room inside it too for bigger cards!

    I'm fine with this as long as they release the V2 firmware for the original. I'd like to actually be able to use my USB ports.

    Yeah i agree. the USB ports really need to be fixed. I cant believe they havnt fixed them yet when the core has been out for almost a year already. Lets hope this new one has working USB ports and they fix the V1 USB ports as well :)

    Well, false alarm. Razer CS posted on Reddit that it was just a typo and there is no Core V2, it's getting deleted soon.

    Thats lame. I really hope they fix the problems with the USB ports soon, and all the other problems that people were having.

    only design but I don't wish anything to be added
    I have it since June and I use it almost all the time and I love how functional it is
    some people complain from the noise
