    It is really nice to see that is also cheaper than the current Razer Core V2

    It looks very big, if the size of the machine can be reduced, then it will be perfect

    That’s called the Core V2.

    Amazingly affordable and compact enough, razer hitting it out of the park with a damn portable desktop

    *AwEsOmE* product!! If i had not yet gotten my Razer Stealth + CoreV2, I might have stayed on the mac side with that! :)
    I really like the direction where this is going, this is exactly the kind of product that moves computer gaming in general (mac&pc) forward!!
    Way to go, Razer!!

    No unfortunately, those usb c I believe don’t support Thunderbolt technology, so far I know for tablet only Asus transformer Pro that could run with external gpu setting through its port.
    Can’t you use also v2 for your Mac? I think nvidia cards isn’t supported yet but amd is already.

    Hi ,

    Lets say if i buy Core X and put
    GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO 11Gb gddr5X PCI Express Graphics Card Black in it :) Does this compatible for new Razer Blade 15 series with NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 Max-Q Design (8GB GDDR5 VRAM, Optimus™ Technology) does this two works with each other ?

    Thanks :)

    No, in term gaming, one of GPU, 1070 inside Blade or 1080ti will sleep, can’t work together. There’s GPU switcher from Razer for Laptop with dgpu like Blade 15 for that. For cuda works both seem could work together, about that I’m not quite sure how though.

    Theoretical, yes. Tough there are a lot of issues if you own a macbook pro with two graphics cards for reasons i do not understand - you need to hack in efi code to make it work afaik. For normal MBpro's with intel gfx cards it should work.

    My story was that i switched from an imac that was 6 ys old and only had tb1 - so i would have to switch systems anyways and I wanted something really portable with some awesome gfx card (playing on an imac was ok but compared to my current razer setup somewhat lacking as you can expect). I was aware of Apple's efforts with external enclosures at that time tough everything was still in beta. Generally, for me the external enclosure market was not yet mature enough (given everything i heard about the CoreV1 and the manuals i have seen to connect some Sonnet Gfx-enclosures to a Mac) that I wanted to go with one supplier for the complete system to avoid having compatibility issues even tough that meant i had to switch away from mac os which really is a downer. On the hardware side, the Razer Tech delivered everything i had hoped for and more, this setup (corev2, RBS i7-8550 and a 1080 gtx with a nice big screen) for me is working exactly how i had hoped it would be in the ideal case - so i am very happy with that. On the OS side, i am fairly ok with runnig debian in a WSL container for all the command line tools i am used to and the rest native on windows.
    Still - even tough I do not need the Core X at the moment i am fairly excited about it because it means there would be a "supported" way back to mac os for me.
    I have to say tough - the RBS in terms of production quality and product design outmatches apple products in my point of view (tough i think both are great)!
