    okay well thanks for the info man, do like the sound of 20% better thermos so maybe ill do it well see maybe might be worth to jst build a whole pc down the line instead but having the 2080ti before then with the core x doesn't sound half bad either

    Whole system. You just proven my point. 700w is still a lot considering that 500w is whole system consumption. Laptops will never consume so much power as desktop pc with cpu, ram etc. So yeah, I still thinks it's an overkill. Good to have it but overkill.
    And again I wonder what standard this psu is. If its efficiency is around 85% then 700w is ok.

    If you take a look at that Vega 64 users issues (disconnecting issue), it translates to 500 watt on core V2 isn’t enough to provide power hunger gpu like that, so users should take higher PSU enclosure which is 650 Watt enclosures like Core X, and new X chroma comes with I/O ports, ethernet and rgb lightning which are also need power supply, that’s where extra 50 watt difference from previous core c go. Note also core v2 isn’t officially supported rtx2080ti even it works, I tried as well with turbo 2080ti but if users overclocking it it may invite similar issue with Vega 64, so it’s explained why they didn’t put rtx cards on supported gpu list.
    Note this is not PC, this’s only GPU (pcie cards) house that needs host laptop to be a full system. There’re some poeple who miss understood this.

    I don't really know how you would make that any smaller/less bulky, it is expensive indeed but thats why the core X exist.

    its the point, you put a graphics card in it and link it up to a laptop via thunderbolt 3 (basically the USB C port on the right of most razer laptops).

    I would expect it to be similar if not the same as the core X, reviews aren't complaining about noise I don't think, so variation will be up to the card's cooling I suspect.

    Time to get rid of the v2. Who wants to buy my v2 for 300.

    It figures this would happen. I feel like I asked elsewhere on the forum whether they would bring out a new version of the Core X with the USB ports and the consensus was it wouldn't happen any time soon if ever. So I bought a Core X. And now look at this. Trade in program, Razer?
