    Hello,

    I have the Razer Blade 15 Base and am looking to have a setup where I can have all my peripherals connected to a docking station rather than unplugging everything when I want to go mobile. I will be using a 30" Ultrawide Monitor as well when docked.

    My question is, are there docking stations that work best or should I just get the Core X Chroma with a Graphics Card? I do light gaming so a 1060ti would be the card I get as I dont need anything more at the time being.

    Thank you in advance for you advice.

    Any "dock" (or port replicator) with Thunderbolt 3 interface will work.
    If you want play heavily - Core X Chroma will be a great alternative, because you can always upgrade the GPU.

    Thanks! Yeah my main concern is just having ports for my peripherals, since the Core X is in the ball park "ish" of some of the docks I have seen suggested, I figured the Core X would be a good alternative since it can do more. However, I think I am going to give the Raptor 27 a try since it has 2 passthroughs and figure out the rest since I have the chroma laptop stand that already has 3 ports as well. Appreciate the help!

    I have a Razer Blade 15 (2018) that I've connected to the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 docking station. It was ~$210 on Amazon. It will be hard (i.e., impossible) to find a docking station that can charge the RB15 since it requires 200 watts. So this docking station will get you down to 2 cables: the power adapter and the thunderbolt cable. It supports up to 3 external monitors. The resolutions that are supported depend on the port type HDMI vs DisplayPort, but are 4K compatible. Via the docking station, I have this laptop attached to a IOGear MiniView Dual DVI KVM switch which supports my 3 computers and two ASUS HD monitors. Here are the monitor resolutions supported:

    • One external monitor
    – DP:3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz
    – HDMI:3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz
    – Thunderbolt 3:3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz
    – VGA:1920 x 1200 pixels / 60 Hz
    • Two external monitors simultaneous
    – DP1 and DP2 / HDMI:DP1 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; DP2 / HDMI 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz
    – DP1 and Thunderbolt 3: DP1 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz; Thunderbolt 3 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz
    – DP1 and VGA: DP1 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; VGA 1920 x 1200 pixels / 60 Hz
    – DP2 / HDMI and Thunderbolt 3: DP2 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz; HDMI 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; Thunderbolt 3 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz
    – DP2 / HDMI and VGA: DP2 / HDMI 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; VGA 1920 x 1200 pixels / 60 Hz
    – Thunderbolt 3 and VGA: Thunderbolt 3 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz; VGA 1920 x 1200 pixels / 60 Hz
    • Three external monitors simultaneous
    – DP1, DP2 / HDMI, and Thunderbolt 3: DP1 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; DP2 / HDMI 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; and Thunderbolt 3 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz
    – DP1, DP2 / HDMI, and VGA: DP1 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; DP2 / HDMI 1920 x 1080 pixels / 60 Hz; and VGA 1920 x 1080 pixels / 60 Hz
    – DP2 / HDMI, Thunderbolt 3, and VGA: DP2 / HDMI 3840 x 2160 pixels / 30 Hz; Thunderbolt 3 3840 x 2160 pixels / 60 Hz; and VGA 1920 x 1200 pixels / 60 Hz
