Razer Blade Stealth + Core for VR?

krkevin
 Share

Hi, I was wondering if I could connect a Razer Blade Stealth with the Razer core and possibly play VR such as Oculus Rift. This is because I want a new laptop right now, but am thinking of buying a Razer Core and Rift later when I am ready and VR has advanced well.

 

Thanks.

You can get the Core with any laptop that uses TB3.

You don't currently have a Blade Stealth, then? I've heard a lot of reviews saying they have really bad thermals. I personally would go for a laptop from Asus, Acer, or MSI with a GTX 1060 6Gb or a 1070 over a Razer

Of course it would have bad thermals if they're trying to cram so much stuff into a thin chassis. What laptop would you recommend then? I'm also fine with buying a desktop if that's cheaper.

At your budget, probably this one: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GS63VR-Stealth-Pro-230-i7-7700HQ/dp/B01N5JUPWO/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1509940046&sr=8-6&keywords=msi+stealth+laptop

 

NOTE: the price on Amazon is in USD, not CAD

the core is one of the first and therefore most unstable and badly engineered docks out there.

 

for good vr, id recommend a 1070 - the gigabyte box comes with one for $599usd which is super cheap.m

 

blade stealth will bottleneck a 1070 tho, even with 8th gen. 

normal blade might struggle, wait for 8th gen

The Core is the first of its kind, but it isn't the first GPU dock. By a LONG shot, docks have been available since Express cards were "in style" and I even got one in the late-2000's (worst idea ever with a uni-core laptop).

Eurocomm has 2 laptops with a 7700HQ + GTX 1070 for CAD $1919 no OS, 1 tb HDD.  Get win10 on ebay for 15 bucks (working well for me :P

 

More powerful, with more storage options

http://www.eurocom.com/ec/configure(2,405,0)SkyMX5R3

 

Larger screen with a Max-Q GPU (slightly less powerful)

http://www.eurocom.com/ec/configure(2,422,0)EurocomQ5

Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

It's above $2000 when converted to CAD, so no thanks.

Is Eurocomm a reliable company?

Yep, I own an ExpressCard eGPU. 

 

However, the core is based on an older TI 82 chipset, where the newer docks are based on the TI 83, which has better support for newer TB3 chipset revisions and better support for OSes that aren't Windows. Core V2 is coming soon with TI83.
