    Thanks for the data! The Intel built-in GPU doesn't show up in lspci/lshw;
    so, it's likely disabled by the BIOS during boot. I don't suppose you recall
    having seen a BIOS option to re-enable it...

  3. It's only good if you don't want a bigger laptop. It will be a little less than the Pro. You are going to spend around $3500 for the Blade, Core and a 1080. The Blade plus the core lacks in power because the bandwidth on thunderbolt just isn't there yet.

    Maybe thunderbolt 4 will fix that issue with external gpu. The Pro with updated drivers, Throttlestop and a small OC can beat the desktop 1080 Founders Edition. Now just need to break that Raid 0 the Samsung's 961ssd are being slowed down. It sad to see the Pro lose SSD speed test because of the Raid 0.

    No, and I think the hardware would not allow data flow to the display panel even if you did.

    I wonder if it's possible to enable the Intel GPU on non-Optimus laptops and use it as a compute resource for custom code? It's not a board full of CUDAs, but it is still some unused capacity. OTOH, would you gain anything, given that this would heat the CPU package more and therefore limit clock speed of the main CPU?

    FWIW, there is very little in the Razer Blade Pro BIOS that can be customized, compared to other BIOSes I have seen.

    For anyone wanting to bitch about the price of the Razer Blade Pro, I refer you to the 19 pound acer laptop announced at CES for 9 grand.

    yeah, i want one:)

    You are joking right, that thing is a giant waste of money. It requires two power cables to run, weighs 19 pounds, might as well get the new desktop with 1080s in it that is portable and water cooled and weighs about the same. Also doesn't cost 9 grand...

    I've had the RBP for week now and loving it. Fans are pretty quiet for the most part and I can play games like Neverwinter for an hour or two and not hear them even kick in.
    Diablo 3 with all setting maxxed on 4k will turn on the fans but the machine doesn't seem to get hot really.

    Still wondering when we'll be on the main track for getting nvidia drivers but overall happy with the large screen and fairly low weight for the specs I have.

    I have my RBP arriving Friday. But I see now that kaby lake refreshes are coming soon from all of the big guys (msi, asus, etc). Should I return this and hold off or does razer not refresh the RBP but once a year ?
  11. They usually only refresh once a year I doubt they will updated it. It is January now so in 9 to 10 months they should refresh it. It should have the best gpu and cpu released at that time probably October 2017. The 1080 Pro will be around $2800 to $3600 and the new one (1180 or whatever) will be $4000.

    That thing is a joke you can buy a sli 1080 laptop for $4500 to $5000 right now. To add $4000 just for a newer cpu and curved screen is worse than Apple and some of the prices for their super marked up tech.

    Out of all the announcements from CES I have yet to see anything that can really top the portability and power the Razer Blade Pro offers.

    I am about to hit a week with mine I love it. The Screen is GORGEOUS! On top of that I played Starcraft 2 in 4k for hours, Heroes in 4k for a few games, Witcher 3 on maxed out everything (including nvidia hair) in 4k, and no issues. Writing code on the screen is fantastic too.

    Mine arrived Yesterday and I tested it on 376.20, and I have lot of problems with throttling or something like this.

    When I play Dota and World Of Tanks my fps drops from ~120 to 30, and coolers start work slow, then agait go hard and by circle. I have tested cooling mode in synapse, throttlestop like it says in this thread, g-sync, many settings in game, and nothing. WTF, for 4k$ I even cant play dota :mad_:

    update: I test WoW on MAX (about 45FPS) settings 4k, play for 4min and it tottaly switch off - ahahah. Max telp like I see in MSI afterburner like CPU is 85 and GPU is about 80

    Are you playing in border less window mode? Sounds like you are if fps is reaching 120 with g sync on lol. Make sure you have gsync on to full screen and windowed mode. And vsync on in NVCP. And off in game. Run in window or full screen online with gsync on. Gsync doesn't run with bordered window mode correctly. If you wanna use bordered window and don't care about gsync turn everything off . Also set to power setting : prefer maximum performance and multi display/ single display performance mode

    Razer just announced their latest proof of concept machine:

    Really the only thing holding me back from pulling the trigger on a Razer Blade Pro right now is lack of Kaby Lake. Razer needs to upgrade to the latest CPUs like all of their competitors are doing!

    From what i gathered that won't happen till the next refresh this fall.

    I swear, why can't anyone understand it won't make that big of a different... The only way you will see something much different is if you get it professionally overclocked like from Origin where it goes well past 5 ghz... If you want the latest and greatest then go buy something that isn't top of the line gaming that is shown at CES because that is the only way you will get it at release date. If you haven't noticed, I haven't seen one thing there that can outdo the razer blade pro. (except the fake laptop from acer for 9k)

    the aorus x7 v6 can outdo it in terms of benchmark numbers, and its a little lighter, and that's just with the 1070 card. the 1080 also outperforms it. that said, i like my blade pro better and returned the aorus.

    The aorus at stock cannot beat it in graphics benchmarks with a 1070, just CPU. The 1080 in the blade pro is between the 1070 and 1080; call it the 1075. With some light overclocking on the GPU core, the blade pro can match a desktop 1080 easily.
