    Yeah but if you'd switch to a 4K external that's about the max power of the 1080 anyway. If performance doesn't take a bigger hit. If that's the route you wanna go

    Just confirmed my current cpu is shit and I need my core ASAP!
    My F5 button is perma stuck down from refreshing!
    One of the cores at E3 would be cool.......
  3. just got my core yesterday,,,,got some serious problem here......I am not a computer guy and I thought this was gonna go easy,,,

    so, I connect the core with gtx 1080 in it, to my razer blade 2016. blade detected the thunderbolt 3, and downloaded a drive for it. and then I downloaded the latest drive for NVidia, and also the gpu switcher. display with a external monitor connect to the core.

    I thought I was done, however, some major issue came up, my computer crashed into a blue screen, and it says pc run into a problem and have to restart. and I try resart a couple times, and even recover my blade to factory mode, the blue screen still show up, everytime I play game or something.

    can I get some help plz!!!

    Sounds like the GPU switcher might be causing you to bluescreen. If you can, I'd try uninstalling it and see if the blue screen problem goes away. You might need to enter safe mode to uninstall the GPU switcher.
  5. I don't think this would work, cause when I recover my computer, everything was deleted. And I went through the whole process again, the blue screen still Show up sometime.

    Also,the core would sometime disconnect by itself for some reason. I thought the problem might be the graphic driver, but reinstall the graphic driver didn't helped me. I am gonna cry like a baby

    Well it looks like having poor performance isn't the worst luck one can get with the Razer Core

    Lol, I'd gladly take the core off your hands for you.

    In all seriousness, you'll have to be more specific about the "process" you're doing that causes the blue screen. The factory default isn't helpful since I don't know if you were bluescreening at the factory default state. What is important is what software/driver you installed that is causing the blue screen.

    After installing synapse, and maybe just the Razer core drivers, do you blue screen? If you do, it's probably a bug with Razer's drivers on the Razer blade. I wouldn't think this is the issue either since everyone else's setups seem to work okay. Alternatively, the 1080 might not be supported fully with Razer core drivers. See if other 1080 users get the same issue. If that were the case, the bug would probably get fixed in a week to a month.

    After installing Nvidia drivers, do you start bluescreening? If so, where did you get the drivers? Your blue screen may have nothing to do with the core, but rather with Nvidia. Do other 1080 users without the core get the same issue?

    Lastly, do you blue screen with the GPU Switcher? If so, it's likely because the GPU switcher is in BETA, in which case I recommend contacting Razer so they can get the kinks in their software worked out.
  8. Thanks man,,, i can use the blade perfectly fine when i disconnect the core, but when the core is connected, the bluescreen usually show up after 3 or 4 mins when i start playing game, or web searching.

    Since shipping week is done, I hope they got the next batch ready to go up.

    Would suck if it becomes a once a month thing.

    I am optimistic that they will open up the sales next week
  11. I hope with E3 out of the way they can ramp up production and their supplies. Hell, I wouldn't mind a model used at E3 at this point :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I have a $100 off coupon, a Blade 2016 and no Core! I registered my email to be notified, but have received no notification despite Cores randomly appearing for sale and just as quickly selling out. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to stalk the Core and smash my F5 button into oblivion everyday. Dealing with Razer is like playing the lottery -- I never seem to win -- they REALLY should give priority to those that bought their Core ready laptops and notify them.

    I love my computer and I'm sure I'll love the Core as well when I finally get one, but dealing with Razer and the lack of communication, there's just no excuse for leaving your customer base in the dark!

    Careful when you buy the Core though. In my case, real game performance gets cut by more than half when compared to desktop setup.

    Do you have a Stealth, or a Blade? Also, did you use the same card in the Core that you used in your desktop? My plan is to take my 980Ti FTW out of my desktop and use that for the Core, I'm replacing the desktop GPW with a 1080 FTW...it's not out yet, so it makes waiting for the Core somewhat more bearable.

    Yes, yes that would suck.

    I never received an e-mail about an extended code (was July 17th, but that has now passed). I send support a message through the site, but I expect I won't hear back until after the weekend. Does anyone know if the code extensions were a matter of course, or only on request? I thought Technokat posted somewhere that all code validation periods were extended, but now as I poke around I can't find it again for some reason (I might just be a bit tired/dumb right now).

    Are you using the laptop display? There's a chance that it's bottlenecking the data by sending it in both directions, and I think I remember there being several reviews showing it works somewhat better with an external monitor than with the laptop display itself (ostensibly by avoiding as much bottleneck).
  17. Nightmyth

    Nightmyth Active Member

    Yeah but the external display isn't going to make the performance much better. It still takes TOO much hit for my taste.

    I use a Blade 2016 14". Using the Strix 1080 OC. A friend of mine uses the EVGA 1080 SC. We have about the same framerates. Performance cut in more than half is when I compare it to GTX 1080 benchmarks on the Internet. Where it should go for 150 FPS, I get less than 60. So, there you go.
  19. I wish I had one so I could mess around and see a way around it. It sounds like it really sucks and I don't know how I feel about paying $500 or even $400 with the coupon for something that's only going to partially do what I am expecting it to do. If I were you I would hold out until they work everything with the 1080's out in future updates :/
  20. Are you using the 1080p display on the laptop display? The monitor on the laptops at 1080p does not go above 60fps, at least I'm pretty sure that's what I heard from someone in a video but if you get an external monitor display then you can get higher fps. So since it maxed at 60 and you get 150 on your desktop doesn't mean that if gets only half. Go get an 1080p monitor and try it, I'm sure you will get higher fps but still lower since it will always be a CPU bottleneck. I could be wrong about the display maxing at 60fps but I'm about 90%
