RBS with Razer Core and Multi 4k Display

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I currently have the new Razer Blade Stealth and the Core with a GTX960. I have one 4K display (Dell P2715Q) but would like to get a second 4k display.

    Is there anyone currently running multiple 4K displays with the core? My main concern would be some sort of bottleneck with Thunderbolt3 / CPU but this is unfamiliar territory to me.

    My primary use on these displays is programming, secondary would be gaming.

    Also: Would there be any significance in upgrading my graphics card to a 1070 or 1080?

    Thanks!

    If you're not gaming across both screens then I don't think that it would put much significant extra stress on the GPU for desktop use or require any material increase in bandwidth usage.

    How do you find that setup for gaming and what games do you play, have you come across any that don't run well?

    With a GTX960 you're not having enough power to game at 4K on one display, no way with more.
     
  4. If I were to upgrade to a 1080 or 1070, would I see significant benefits on the displays?
    I play mainly League of Legends and some classic RTS games like Rise of Nations. League gets me around 250FPS on the 4K display. I've had no issues or lag with gaming.

    The only issue (and others have this as well) is I have to plug my USB peripherals into the RBS itself otherwise the power will intermittently cut out.

    If you're already getting 250 fps @ 4K in the game you play most o_O, why on earth would you want to upgrade your gfx card?! A 1070/80 is definitely an upgrade from a 960, but I just don't see how you'd notice the improvement.

    Annoying that the Core suffers from the USB problems but hopefully Razer will fix that over the coming weeks/months.
     
  6. The reason for upgrading from the 960 would be better support for the dual 4K but it sounds like as long as I'm not doing heaving gaming I should be okay.

    The difference would be huge for AAA. I'm recommending a 1080 for 4K, 1070 would struggle, but even the 1080 is weak for more then one 4K monitor.

    Generally for AAA titles yes, but look at the games he is playing.

    Yeah, didn't read those :/

    I mean... If you play e-Sport games like that only... I guess a 1070 would be enough.

    I use a single 4k monitor for everything (not in a core however) but event sli 980ti sttruggle with AAA games however I have had no issues with non AAA titles and like said above if you are getting 250fps adding another monitor not for gaming will not make a huge impact. I believe that the 1070 and 1080 are also throttled by the core and RBS anyways( not 100% on that however)
