  3. Nice, hopefully I can get a vive come Christmas time as a gift from someone or myself. The $800 price tag is a lil steep given how much I recently spent getting the RBS, Core and 1070, and I don't believe there are any discounts available right? On another note, writing this on my RBS that is now running a Core :)
  4. No I think they're still milking it :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: It is fun though if you're willing to splurge
  5. Also you are using the RBS for the Vive Osprey? Just ran 3dmark on my RBS display with both the core and internal graphics, and was a little disappointed to see the core still didn't meet the minimum specs for VR, so just wondering what difference it makes when you use the external display or VR headset.
  6. I use RBS with a 1080. iirc it got a 10.9 on the steam VR test and runs smoothly s long as the display window on the stealth is small. I think VR uses graphics cards more than processors as I know people with min spec gpus and really bad processors can still do most things.

  7. Ok, cool to know. I hope i can one day join you in the vive owners group:) Also if anyone wants the specs i got from both the core and onboard, be happy to share.

    Just got my shipment notification! Placed my order 6/22 right before 7pm, and the shipping label was created today.

    I got my shipping notices as well.

    Interestingly I placed my order on 6/23 and the back order ship date said 7/29 when I checked yesterday.

    Whatever mine is on it's way now, but Razer still has my 2016 Blade for repairs. So I will have a core without anything to hook it up to for a while.

    Hah, it's finally delivered on Friday night! But I'm not home for the weekend, so looking forward to setup on Monday.

    I hope that your core works
  14. I got a shipping notification 1 day after support got back to me and said that my core would not ship till August 5th. So I'm pretty happy!
  15. When you plug in the thunderbolt cable to your computer, does it charge, and does the card turn on but not the chroma lighting in the core? I've had the issue where I've plugged it in, but the chroma doesn't engage, but the card is running, and in that case I just manually switch the gpu.

    How do you manually switch to the GPU

    Isn't there a switcher app that needs to be downloaded?

    Pretty much the same thing.

    Approve the core TB3 use, then ran the BIOS updater, and shut down and leave unplugged for 30 seconds. Boot up with razer core and everything's working smoothly.

    I got 42-49 fps avg on Overwatch at 4k Epic settings maxed out at 100% render without anti aliasing and using the internal display of the Stealth

    My Core will arrive tomorrow. The bad news I just got the follow update about the RMA for my Blade.


    So I will have the Core for about 3 weeks with no laptop to plug into it :slightly_sad: On the bright side maybe a GEFORCE GTX 1070 or 1080 will be in stock by then.
