    Hi, I plan to buy a Razer Blade Stealth 13.3" and pair it with my GALAX SNPR eGPU enclosure with GTX 1060(www.galax.com/en/galax-snpr-external-graphics.html)

    I know that it will theoretically work since TB3 is there for the stealth, but what I'm concerned about is the USB-C TB3 port is also used for charging the blade. So I'm not sure if the enclosure will charge the blade stealth when plugged.


    Any Razer Staff who could check the compatibility?

    Reading a review, It states that the "Thunderbolt 3 port does not power laptops unlike some other thunderbolt 3 docks" (Taken from here)
    If I read that correctly, That means it will not charge the laptop at the same time, and since the port is also used for charging you would have to do it one at a time (charge then plug in and play), or you might be able to see if theres some kind of dongle but I doubt it would work, You could always try though.
    I think I heard of some other docks that allow charging at the same time in the past but I am not sure of the names, you would just need to look around. Keep in mind that the Core is the only dock supported by Razer officially, so if you were to run into issues you would have to contact the company that makes the dock, not Razer, since they would likely just tell you to get the core or something.

    Sure staff will check it for you;) The only chance, I think by going to physical store like ms store or Best Buy that provides the stealth if you’re living in US and Test if it charges it before buy, since the enclosure is quite portable to bring around.

    wrong choice of word, I meant "confirm" compatiblity. You know, TB3 eGPU technology should work fine for the enclosure side, but Razer may design their blade stealths to be compatible ONLY with the CORE

    I've just finished reading Stealth + AORUS Gaming box compatibility, 2016 models have an issue but the latest ones only need the blade to be charged atleast 92% before plugging in the Aorus box. I have not yet seen any other eGPU combos for the blade aside from the Gaming Box(no ROG XGStation 2)
