    Hi Joikansai,

    Alas you are right. As much as I want those ports I don't know if I can justify the risk of not being able to sell the original Core X for a decent return. I have plugged my Chroma Headset Stand into the USB-C port on my RTX card via a USB A to C cable. However, it sometimes disconnects and sometimes Synapse doesn't recognize it. Now up to this point, a simple unplug and plug back in has solved it but I would like to find out why that's happening so I can get it solved. My card (ASUS) has RGB on it so the new Core X Chroma wouldn't be so much for the lighting as for the ports with a more direct pass to the TB3 connection on the laptop. As it is now, it feels like an awful lot of daisy chaining. USB A Stand to cable converter USBC to USB-C port to GPU to PCIE to TB3 at Laptop. Whereas the new Core X Chroma would just be USB A to PCIE controller to TB3.

    as someone shopping for a new laptop, this is going to make my job a LOT easier. not having to worry about the GPU too much is going to save me a lot of money initially and then i can just keep this on my desk for when i want to sit down and fr4g sum n00bz

    I have one of these units and it's fantastic. Paired with an RTX 2070 and Dell XPS 13 9380. Just one problem so far with the ethernet connection going on & off - I have raised a ticket with Razer Support.

    I sort of asked this in the "What would you like to see next" thread, but I kinda wish for a mini-itx version of the core. A mini-itx core would mean it's less bulky and more lightweight that you would be able to bring it with you on trips abroad. I've actually asked the weight question in Amazon and they say it's really heavy. So far, I see Gigabyte have their Aorus Gaming Box at just over 5 lbs, but it would be nice to see a Razer equivalent. It would be the ideal gaming-on-the-go set-up for my blade stealth :).

    Hey man!
    I see you're a newbie here, I just wanted to let you know that your response might be considered spam/fluff and therefore could be penalized.
    I would encourage you to read the Posting Guidelines
    as well as the Razer Insider House Rules
    in order to avoid future inconveniences.

    Also I think you should try to post in English so that all of us can try to help you/ share our thoughts on the point you just made. As Kajira once said:
    Because Razer is a USA based company and they do most of their business in English unless they're conducting business in a different country at that time. Since the US is their "home country" as far as where it's technically located, that is why it is also done in English.
    There are small groups who wish for specific language forum sections, but at this time it's not cost efficient to hire a new group of staff to support that.​

    You can PM me if you have any questions or need any help! :big_grin_:

    Schönes Ding. Aber leider sind die Externen Gehäuse, egal welcher Hersteller, einfach zu teuer. Hier bei uns in Deutschland kostet das Core Chroma 450 Euro. Dazu brauch ich noch eine gute Grafikkarte, die wiederrum mindestens 350 Euro kostet. Alles in allem, ab 800 Euro.
    Das Razer Blade Stealth kostet ebenfalls 1400 Euro aufwärts. Alles in allem wäre man so mit bei 2200 Euro. Dafür bekommt man einen sehr guten Rechner mit Monitor und Razer Peripherie Geräte.
    Nicht falsch verstehen, bin sehr zufrieden mit meinem Blade aber Razer Core ist einfach zu teuer.
    Es sieht super aus, macht auch sicher einen sehr guten Eindruck mit einer zusätzlichen Karte aber nicht für den Preis. Würde mir für die 3 Gen. eine Edition mit Grafikkarte wünschen, die auch bezahlbar sind.

    Beautiful thing. But unfortunately, the external housings, no matter which manufacturer, are simply too expensive. Here in Germany, the Core Chroma costs 450 euros. In addition, I need a good graphics card, which again costs at least 350 euros. All in all, from 800 euros.
    The Razer Blade Stealth also costs 1400 euros upwards. All in all, that would be the case with EUR 2200. For this you get a very good computer with monitor and Razer peripherals devices.
    Don't get it wrong, I'm very happy with my blade but Razer Core is just too expensive.
    It looks great, also certainly makes a very good impression with an additional card but not for the price. Would me for the 3 gene. want an edition with a graphics card that is also affordable.

    Core is made to accompany stealth and transformed it to ultrabook that can gaming, now with 1650 on 2019 model you can game but you’ll limited to what 1650maxq can do, not in case with core setting the problem maybe the cpu bottleneck, TB3 bandwidth depends Core setting and game. Of course having real desktop battle station would give you more performance but for someone like me who’re too lazy building a tower, hate having too many systems and space for that core setting is the cleanest and simplest setting.
    For performance for bucks my stealth was under €1K from refurbished Razer store, xc2080 was like €700 new and Core v2 was €300 used, it’s roughly 2K and overall performance on firestrike can beat my 1070maxq and I think it’s around 2070maxq Blade which costs more on overall score, of course cpu performance since it’s only quad core 15 Watt low voltage cpu it can’t beat the Blade 15 6 cores 45 Watt CPUs.

    Ja klar, wenn man Refurbish bzw. gebraucht günstig rann kommt, ist es sicher deutlich günstiger. Ich finde es ja auch gut, jedoch Preislich bin ich da nicht dabei. Hatte mir auch schon überlegt mir so einen Core Chroma da hin zustellen jedoch schreckt der Preis einer Grafikkarte mich ab. Deshalb hoffe ich bei Version 3 auf eine vorinstallierte zum günstigere Preis.

    Yes, of course, if you can run Refurbish or used cheaply, it is certainly much cheaper. I think it's a good thing, but I'm not there in terms of price. Had already thought for me to put such a Core Chroma there, but the price of a graphics card puts me off. That's why I'm hoping for a pre-installed one at a lower price for version 3.
