Are there any benchmarks for the Razer Core? I need a new thin laptop, but will also need a desktop-class performance for VR gaming. The Razer Core seems to be the answer, but I'm worried that Pascal GPUs will bottleneck badly... I am planning to use it with the XPS 15 with its Skylake quad core i7 and 16GB of RAM.

The slower Alienware GPU Amplifier seems to be score 15K-17K on Firestrike, with the 980ti:

There's no way to know for sure whether or not Pascal will bottleneck because we basically know nothing about it. But it shouldn't bottleneck any current GPUs from what I've read. TB3 is really fast.
