    Sadly, Razer didn't see fit to install HDMI 2.0, which is crucial to support UHD on external displays at any refresh better than 30Hz.
    A lot of early UHD TV's are also delivered without HDMI 2.0. My recommendation would be not to buy any UHD display without it.

    I read a lengthy article outlining the details of UHD and HDMI 2.0, and I also run a 40" UHD TV off my Sony Vaio Pro 11, which works great for desktop apps like Excel or Cakewalk's Sonar audio recording software. The Vaio Pro's integrated GPU has some issues with switching and such, I imagine anything from Nvidia or AMD wouldn't have those issues.

    At any rate, 30 Hz refresh obviously stinks for games, hence the need for HDMI 2.0, cause HDMI 1.4 has absolutely sorry transfer rates, that can't even handle 3D in 1080p beyond 24Hz refresh.

    2 days after announcement, 128gbytes.
    By the way -> d3 ros at native + aa and vsync -> always 60fps.
    No drop! I expected 40-45 :)

    Given this information, great job by the way, is anyone aware of faster M.2 M keyed drives that might be surfacing in the future? Furthermore, it seems like they'll probably be relatively expensive ($500+), thoughts on that? I'm trying to find a good balance between performance, size, and cost... The M550 seems alright. Is the following inference correct: Because we have a M key drive we can use B keyed drives as well because our socket can accept the PIN layout? I might be way off base and you still need some sort of adapter, but that's how I interpreted the information. Thanks in advance...

    Not really up to Razer, it's up to Intel and nVidia to support it first.

    Thanks :)

    So you were among the first to order one, and you got it 63 days after placing your order by the looks of it. Roughly 2 months rather than 3-4 weeks.

    I guess their speed might pick up with time, but I probably won't be getting mine on May 6th then...
