  1. The last time the "Limited Units Available" message appeared on the Core product page was on Thursday, June 2, 2016. I remember, because some speculated that we would not be able to buy the Core until after the weekend, which turned out to be true. I was able to buy a Core on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, at around 1:00pm according to my receipt. My time zone is UTC+2:00, Kyiv, Ukraine.

    Also, my credit card was not charged, but there is a "pending transaction" from Razer and my order status is now "In Procress."

    Based on initial testing it looks like the few that he the core are saying using the core reduces the output of the card in it by 10 to 15% than if it was in a desktop. While I'm sure it's still worth it the one guy also said that for the best performance you should use an external monitor rather than sending the video back to the internal, and not use the ethe net or USB ports on the core. I can deal with some performance loss on an external GPUbut I'm not sure about not being able to use the ports. I was hoping to connect peripherals to it so I didn't have to constantly connect/disconnect every time I ran the laptop with the core.

    Did anyone hear back from Razer Support about their non functioning code? Mine is going to expire soon too, and I haven't heard anything back since last Thursday, and with a speculated wave coming this week. It'd be nice to know ANYTHING about the dud codes.

    I've contacted support about my code not being functional and they said it should work this time
    This is their reply
    We understand your concern.
    Once the Razer Core is available again, you may attempt to place a new order as the code should work then.
    We do hope that the Razer Core will be back in stock soon.
    Sincerely,
    Team RazerStore

    Would you care to show the place where you got these findings?

    Based on the ultrabookreview.com reviews, you can expect an 8.87% loss compared to desktops.

    Low Framerate benchmark yielded an 8.11% difference, where high bench saw a 9.62% difference.

    The place where the largest loss was seen was on High and Ultra 2560x1440 on Dragon Age Inquisition.


    Definitely not trying to challenge the 10-15% piece that you have quoted, but trying to make sure I have all my facts straight - I haven't seen many benchmarks, so I would be interested to see where this info came from.

    I am not an expert but this guy over here says it is 10-15 % loss
    either way I think it is okay over all

    I'm betting we'll see some shipping today/tonight, but probably not until later this afternoon. When my blade shipped I didn't get a notification until 9:20pm (PDT since their warehouse is in California) that same day.

    im just wondering why mine hasnt even moved past "submitted"...this whole process since feb has been a huge hassle.

    I'm in the same boat, I guess I'll just have to stare at my 1070 for a few days, haha.
