    For FPS counter on game you can use fraps that’s very easy to install, or Afterburners FPS etc monitoring softwares. Nvidia and cortex FPS counter isn’t good imo.
     
  2. I just ran 3dmark Time Spy 1.0 free benchmarking software and got the following results
    - cpu score: 3038
    - graphics score: 5102

    please check the images below for a more detailed result

    Does the Core V2 use synapse version 2 or 3? I hate having both versions installed. It's so stupid. They should just migrate everything over to 3.

    Its still beta. Just keep 2 then unless you just need 3.. Uninstall. its what I did.

    So you answered one of two questions I had for the quad-core and V2. The only thing I wonder now is if the RBS can handle the Computer Science/Graphic Design classes on the road.

    As reviewers out there mentioned maybe you will need higher TDP i7 CPU for your works like on Blade 14, in that case maybe you’d better waiting till CES, if intel or Nvidia give a hint of their new products which could be possible being adopted in Blade 14 2018. Though you can try new Kabylake R stealth and if it doesn’t fulfill your needs or doesn’t make you satisfied you can return it back can’t you?

    I have a Dell inspirion 7557 with TB3 ... do you think it will work with the core v2 and a Asus 1070? I need the core primary as a real docking station, because this USB-shit has a terrible performance with 2 FH and 1 QHD monitor. And you cannot play games in fullscreen...

    sure but I'm not going to go through the trouble of ordering one to find out it doesn't meet the class work on the road. I still have time, and I'd like to see what my options are if there are people around that does have the Quad-core and is doing this kind of work on it outside of gaming. More than likely I'll end up upgrading to at least the Quad-core until I hear otherwise. It'll just be march/april before I make that kind of move.

    I just started some courses in intro to java programming, so hopefully I wont learn the hard way.
     
  8. Hi surfer1081, I used to do programming back in high school and undergraduate studies, and I had no problem coding even with an ultrabook. It usually took about 30 seconds to a minute to compile 10~20k lines of codes. I've done Java, c++ and c#. I'm not too sure about graphic design classes, but my sister is a graphic designer and she uses the 2016 MacBook pro, so I feel like that should be fine as well.

    @Glaucoussystemfast368 thats good to know and thanks! My cousin is taking graphic design type of classes and she said alot of people in her class can't keep up because their laptops aren't equipped to handle what they do. The specifics of what they were doing or what the other students had for laptops...not to sure. I know some 3D modeling was in the works for at least a couple of her classes. She also has my MSI GT80s ..so I knew it could handle whatever they threw at her.

    If your MSI can handle all the stuff you say it can already handle, theoretically, the new quad core should do likewise or perhaps perform even better?

    Well the MSI GT80s has a tad bit more underneath the hood than an Quad-core RBS. If you are not familiar with MSI lineup, the GT series is like the the Razer Blade Pro series in comparison. That MSI laptop I sold off to my cousin back in Jan as she needed it for those classes during the spring semister, so its no longer in my possession.

    Ya I know about that...but you also did mention that you will be hooking it up to the Core...hence my assumption...

    Purchase made from AU store! Any recommendations for medium ranged compatible graphic cards?

    1050ti? It’s already on €150 price tags here. Weird it’s not on compatible list since older model 750ti is listed, but I saw other users also using 1070ti that isn’t listed. If you want VR capability maybe 1070 minimum specs for better experience.

    This doesn't seem like much of a upgrade if it had thunderbolt 4 (I don't know if that exists yet) then I think it would be worth it.

    I have both, they are practically identical. V2 has some internal refinements like the pci-e lock. IDK if they have released an update to fix the fan yet, I still have the sensor unplugged. It's not an upgrade more of a minor revision.

    For EU it’s a big price Upgrade, old €599 vs new €519. TB4:) Even TB3 still can’t delivery proper 40gb data speed on eGPU setting only max 32gb, are you talking about rumored 80 gb TB4 now? it’s too early imo. I’ll definitely get the Core but for now gtx1060 on my laptop still performs well, maybe once Volta out and I need to play 4k gaming. They won’t release V2 if there’s no improvement on it, like splitted lanes between io ports and GPU that could bring more stable performance (my guess since I don’t have it;))

    I really like this idea of Razer's but unfortunately I can't get it right now the V3 or 4 would probably be out by the time I get to this (Around 2 or 3 years when my PC will be outdated and I would have enough for Razer's PC stuff). But at least this is good for you for now.

    Holy guacamole! In the US they are $400 USD ~ 340€ (with discount from buying razer laptop) and the price is the same between v1 and v2.

    The core in europe costs more than my graphics card by itself! You could buy a decent tower PC for that much.
