    Most likely they are unboxing it themselves quickly out of excitement, without thinking of taking a video until later.

    This is what I got back when I emailed Razer.

    "We apologize for any delays, and we hope to get your order shipped out to you as soon as possible.

    The New Razer Blade is getting delayed due to we facing some unexpected delays with the shipment of the product. We are doing our best to ship out the items as soon as possible.

    One of the reasons for the delay/limited supplies of the new Razer Blade and Blade Stealth is that one of the key components of the system, the camera sensor, is made by Sony in Kumamoto, Japan.

    The recent earthquake on 14 April affected shipments of our key components and led to the delays in the launch of the Blade and limited supply of the Stealth.

    Shipments have since resumed and we look forward to catching up with the demand of the Blade systems.

    We apologize for the delay and for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. "
  6. Yeah MinLiangTan said that on his facebook last weekend.
  7. If you want to wait until later this year (That's when we will most likely see the mobile version of the gpu) go for it.

    There will always be something better coming out. Pascal is billed as a giant leap, but it's also all new tech so it's possible it could have problems. I wouldn't want to buy one of the first pascal mobile systems. The 3D RAM is going to be fun to cool (like the NVMe drives...)

    We have benchmarks with the 1080..... This so called "giant leap" isnt so giant.

    As for reviews.... just keep an eye out on LinusTechTips on youtube, i suspect he already has a core and plans to do a review of it. He may have a blade now or soon.

    honestly I don't think razer being that they have a very deep r&d department would risk putting in a gpu that's brand new off the line in to this seasons line before its been tested out to the fullest. they want full on spectrum from their machine's so in that sense I would expect a pascal model with improved vram in the 2017 season when it's a little more developed in. o_O:smile_::smile_::smile_::smile_::smile_:
  11. The problem more so is that mobile chips aren't even out yet lol
    i mean when we have pascal next year, most laptops will probably have newer processors in them too

    Actually.... we don't know if OEMs have the chips yet. For all we know, they could have had them for a while. Take a look at the desktop Pascal leaks, one of which was a customized MSI variant.

    It happening now! I just got a tracking number from Fedex on my 512GB ordered March 15, 2016 9:37:30 AM Eastern time. It says preparing for delivery and it is already at the Fedex location in Bloomington California. Scheduled delivery is 5/11/16. I'm pretty stoked right now. Finally!

    I'm sure they have the chips by now. It takes time to get things ready. I'm sure MSI and gigabyte will be ready right at the launch like they always do.

    Definitely real. I just got the shipping confirmation from Razer as well and my order changed to complete.
