    How about the same specs as I listed but swapping with a GTX 1080? Not the Ti. Would that help run games at 60FPS at 1080p?

    I think it’ll be no problem with that aimed FPS and resolution, had my previous Blade with 7700HQ which is similar performance with your 8850 paired with 1070ti on 1440p, could manage Far Cry 5 and FFXV 40 to 50fps, so 1080p should do 60fps~. On FFXV when I’m not wrong it was max 60fps on 1080p when I tested it. 1070ti/1080 is sweat spot for ultrabook cpu atm imo, more than that maybe you’ll get better performance, but worse performance for bucks.

    Just have to think outside the box. lol

    Looks my unit is stuck in customs do to Razer forgetting to send a Commericial Invoice. I just did a chat with Razer Support and they claim they are working on it. Being the holidays I can assume it's probably a mad house for them at the moment so hopefully it'll be cleared up shortly.

    I have to disagree

    Nvidia did have a lot of bad press for the launch and even more for "issues" with some cards.

    However, while they did not have the greatest launch of all time, they did what they had to do to promote real time ray tracing. With AMD having nothing to offer the the moment, the timing was perfect to go ahead with a new technology while taking a minimal risk.
    While the 20XX series is one for early adopters and doesn't come cheap, what they achieved is actually pretty incredible. Who would have thought that, in 2018, we would be able to get 60+ FPS in 1080p with real time ray tracing? And it's only the beginning, since optimization hasn't even started yet. Things will only get better with the next gen/refresh. But only time will tell if it gets adopted by the end user ...

    As far as issues go, numbers speak by themselves and the issues are only affecting less than 2% of the 2080 ti model. Anything related to computers and electronics with a sub-2% failure rate is actually a success in this day and age. It had a lot of bad press, but if you look at the facts, it's not as bad as it looks.

    So yeah, I'm still hyped for Turing Mobile :)

    Yea may go this route when I think I can get everything for second price except the V4 Blade Stealth. I’ll just have to figure out how to get a good price for the stealth under the quad core configuration, which is the i7-8500U in the V4 config. Should be enough for 1080p with the core And maybe 1070 standard. That might be the best route to go. I like my options.

    I would also agree with you but I just having trouble with my rtx, dead and it’s not 2080ti, evga 2070 Black, fortunately Evga has great CS gave me BFV even I bought before the promotion period, exchange all expense I paid with the loose and send me new card. Btw yes Ray Tracing is getting better with time I saw latest optimization made almost 50% performance improvement.
    About AMD, they’re working underground by selling the card really cheap, at least here, you can get rx570 for almost as low as €100 with 2 games! Fortunately those cards doesn’t take my interest but Vega 56 that’s now drop to 350 with 3 triple A games!, if go down to €300, maybe i can’t close my eyes on that;) There’s already rumors AMD Navi with decent price, hope with that nvidia can revise their price tag. Though if the demands high reseller or market price may higher like Turing launch.
    I think offering hardware against house rule, honestly i still like my stealth, from form factor and build quality, pretty similar with Apple laptops, sturdy well made, still better value than MacBook Air 2018 in ports, cpu performance, egpu setting etc imo. Kind want to keep it since it’s the last Edge round form factor Blade that I have.

    There’s new pictures of the cooling solution (2:44), I think on dGPU model, pretty promising for an ultrabook.

    AMD are aggressive for the lower end of the mid-range cards, but I want them to be able to compete with the high ends Nvidia cards. With competition comes price drops and I would love to be able to grab a 2080ti for 1000$ CAD (about 750 USD) :D *wishful thinking*

    If AMD RX 3000 series are as powerful and cheap as they are rumored to be then this could shake things up. But, I'm sceptical since Vega was supposed to be something awesome. Then they came out and were basically the same cards as the 1080 and 1070 that required more power and ran hotter. Plus they were impossible to get because mining. If these cards come out and they follow nvidias inflatted price logic then we're all in trouble. So fingers crossed.

    I really hope AMD will offer something great this time, but I'll doubt it until they prove me wrong ...

    And even if they do offer great cards, they can't afford to sell them as high $ as Nvidia if they hope to grab a good chunk on the market share.

    Might be wishful thinking, but my wallet wants the best scenario to happen ;)

    I know they could do something awesome. They are doing very well with their CPU's lately and are basically making fools of intel. I hope this translates over to the mobile market in the future.

    Normally I'd agree but Vega proved that wrong. Granted they had the blessing of mining on their side and were able sell them like hotcakes. But, the price to performance was very little compared to the 1000 series offered by Nvidia.

    That being said though Nvidia RTZ has been a mess. I have a 1080Ti so the only card worth my attention was the 2080Ti. And I'm not willing to shell out $1200 + for a card that should cost $700-$800. So if AMD puts the squeeze on them on the low end it would hopefully make them drop the price on the high end. If you can spend $300 on a card that matches or beats a 2070 for half the cost it's a no brainer choice. Plus there is one game with Ray Tracing right now. So until that is mainstream in games I'm all about performance before fancy features.

    My wallet wants the holidays to be over. lol

    Early benchmarks Firestrike. Not bad temperature at all and look at whiskey lake physical score, it beats my old Blade 14 7700HQ physical score, damn...me, keep strong;)
    It’s an ultrabook, you can compare it with 2018 €2K MacBook Pro 13 with intel iris, it can’t run Crysis:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    *Gaaaaaaasp* Macbook what? How dare you make that comparison?!

    Funny story I was looking at MacBook pro 13 not long ago. I was leaning against it do to Nvidia cards not being natively supported on macOS through eGpu. Then the RX590 came out and the RX3000 cards were "leaked" so it was almost like fate was telling me, "Do it. . .nooooow." Then Razer releases this new blade stealth. Seeing as I can upgrade the m.2 myself and don't need an AMD gpu it was a no brainer for me to pull the trigger.

    But now you got me thinking since the MacBook pro 13 does have higher clocked cpus and the iris pro graphics. But I'm sure they thermal throttle since they don't seem to care about good thermals lately.

    It use this 8259U, take a look at physical performance on firestrike only 8000ish and compare to this. And iris gpu vs mx150 4gb vram, come on;)

    Lol. I'm reading through their review on the i5 2018 version that sight as we speak. And my suspensions that it runs hot were right. So it seems to run worse than a windows 8550u laptop in benchmarks. So Razer Stealth 2019 having two fans has me hopeful I made the right call as it should run faster and cooler.

    Don’t gaming on MacBook even with egpu setting, it throttle a lot, there’s not much cooling inside it, for photo editing etc is fine. I’m using it for printing papers:cool_:lol. Btw their 8850H MacBook Pro 15 physical score is worse than my lower clock 8750H on Blade 15, when I’m not wrong it performed similar with their i9, idk if they addressed it already though. But yeah it’s more popular than Blade;)
    Next week I’ve appointment in Apple store for my IPhone battery upgrade can’t wait to use the Blade there to sync my phone:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
