The Razer Core X is a Thunderbolt 3 external graphics enclosure that will boost your laptop’s graphics like it’s a desktop computer. It’s also compatible with Macs, so no one can laugh at you for not being able to game on a Mac anymore!
Designed with a standard Thunderbolt 3 connection, the Core X is incredibly versatile and compatible with systems running either Windows and macOS – specifically Windows 10 Redstone 1 or later and macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 or later with compatible AMD Radeon cards. Razer compatible laptops include the Razer Blade Stealth, Razer Blade, and Razer Blade Pro (GTX 1060 version). Additional Windows 10 laptops require a Thunderbolt 3 port with external graphics (eGFX) support.
Crafted from the ground up, the Razer Core X features an expanded internal design with a wider aluminum shell to accommodate up to 3-slot wide desktop graphics cards. The Core X supports the latest desktop PCIe graphics cards such as NVIDIA GeForce, NVIDIA Quadro, and AMD XConnect enabled Radeon and Radeon Pro cards. You’re getting a ton of juice with the Core X thanks to the power of all these big-name graphic cards.
The Razer Core X has plug-and-play capabilities with the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection to the laptop. This eliminates the need for lengthy reboots every time the external graphics enclosure is connected. The convenient Thunderbolt 3 connection also yields fast speeds of up to 40Gbps.
There’s also a massive 650W ATX power supply to provide adequate power for future graphics cards. A single Thunderbolt 3 connection to the laptop provides 100W of power for laptop charging.
The aluminum enclosure is designed with open vents and additional desktop cooling to quickly dispense heat and provide optimal thermal performance whether for gaming sessions or even digital currency mining.
Physical installation of a desktop graphics card takes seconds with the Razer Core X. Its durable aluminum housing slides open with minimal effort and the graphics card is secured in place with a thumb screw for a tool less setup. This will help to future-proof your laptop, as graphics cards are easily swappable with new components and graphics as they become available.
