  1. Just like opinion, there would be sometime, a new model to develop hardware of high-range for future, for extreme gamers and making good use of the new configurations dual SLI of Nvidia.

    A new concept for high-range notebooks and compact computers that occupy less space in the cases chasis, as Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX PC sizes.

    Razer Core X2 Will some day exist?

    Hi Skylar-Astarot, cool mockup. SLI eGPUs would be amazing. With 2 GTX 1080 SLI Nvidia Bridge, you can probably run all the latest games at max graphics, 4K, 60FPS...with the exception of maybe Crysis 3.

    Did you estimate what the dimensions of the Core X2 would be? I would like the enclosure to be as small as possible because if it becomes too big (perhaps the same size as a mini/micro ITX case) then it will lose a lot of appeal for me.

    In addition, some USB-C out ports would be nice to future proof it for peripherals.

    I would be down for something like this however it may have issues with heat and thermal throttling

    Do you believe that companies elect their equipments for his attractivenesses?
    These are hardwares that do not deserve to no visual attractiveness, old man, they are not things to put it in an art gallery like illumination inside the cabinet or the Thermaltake P5 Wall, that is garbage to play with us.
    Let's be serious, if you want an automobile of 700HP and Motor Turbo in 12 cylinders in V, do not expect that it be little.

    The connections USB-C and/or PCI-E 4.0 is foward retrocompatibily, is possible.

    Do not buy never device in Overclock, there burns to +60º C!

    WTF!!! Mistake!
    Thunderbolt 3.0 is 40 Gbps, the more faster speed connection between any device.

    I think bottleneck will rather be my wallet ^^

    Both PCIE slots would still be feeding data back through the same 40 Gbps Thunderbolt connection.

    Well, who was talking about Thunderbolt 3? I assumed Thunderbolt 4 :smiling_imp:
    Ummm...I'm not sure if you were trying to insult me there or something, but I'm not an old man...?

    But to answer your question, I 100% wholeheartedly disagree. Razer is a company that cares a ton about design and 'visual attractiveness.' They put a lot of effort into designing their packaging, website, and of course, their products. If you don't think computer hardware deserves to be aesthetically pleasing, you're probably a fan of the wrong company.

  9. Sorry, the fucking soft World Magic 5 translate anything, old man is Man, i speaking spanish.

    You not confuse, you have talked about me the size, if course that esthetics is necessary to have, but that's not to say that it should become primary, like the mentioned company, you make a mistake when you say that I am a fan of Razer, I like his quality products, no his designs, I am the class of client than elects QUALITY over the design.

    I don't think it will be bottleneck but in this case, the case should have better cooling solution like watercooling support.
  13. @Cirtuit.Board
    If there were a liquid-cooling option (LCS as MSI Sea Hawk or Radeon Pro Duo) It should be larger and would no longer be portable.

    actually it is not true. AIO liquidcooler does not need so much space. it just needs additional space for its exhaust fan + radiator. and of course there are some solutions which are using 92mm fans. it will fit into the current gen core.

    and hey, the core already exceeds 12 pounds except for graphics card. is it still portable?
  15. Many people seek smaller sized sacrificing many options, for me the bigger the better. :big_grin_:

    Razer Core Size
    Width: 104.9 mm
    Depth: 339.9 mm
    Height: 218.4 mm

    Razer Core X2 Size (Aprox)
    Width: 160 mm
    Depth: 340 mm
    Height: 218.4 mm

    Depending on whether the Cooling Area -Fan+Radiator- will be higher if the LCS is placed vertically (up to 320mm w/120mm fan/radiator) or horizontal (250mm w/360mm radiator/3 fans). Besides, it gives space for length of the tubes.

    Something like that would be great for me. :heart_eyes:

    This all seems kind of pointless since it seems like Nvidia is starting to stray away from SLI configs and instead trying to simply design cards where only one is needed to game at 4K(although they still offer SLI products). Besides that if you look up troubles with SLI you'll come across plenty of people having issues and a lot of games simply not working at all in SLI configurations. My advice would be just to get the current Core and buy the absolute best GPU you can, maybe like the new TITAN based on Pascal when it comes out or 1080ti.

    Depending on how much of a bottleneck thunderbolt 3 really is, an expander with even a 3rd slot could be very helpful for non-gaming uses. I work in Post Production for film and being able to throw in a RAID card or broadcast SDI card or 10G Ethernet card or a video accelerator card could all be very helpful in addition to the extra computing power afforded by an eGPU. Another option would be having a thunderbolt 3 loopthrough on the core so a 2nd expander or other thunderbolt device could be attached.

    Though it is also related to the Core available, streaming games from a desktop makes more sense to me. I am just curious what kind of problem Core (X2) solves right now.

    The ability to have even more graphical power at home, when you still need a laptop on the go and want power at home :) 1 card isnt currently enough to run every single game at max settings at 4k at optimal fps. or some people have many monitors to power and more cards would help with that as well!
