Rocking a brand-new look, the Razer Blade Pro 17 is the ultimate on-the-go battlestation

i feel like i need to make sure i have a share-worthy battlestation before i can even think of getting this beauty..
I'm still settling in with my lovely new Blade Stealth and have been drooling over the Core v2. Now this... this is a piece of kit! Firmly at the top of the wishlist.
So a Core and Core V2 but with a bigger (generic ATX) PSU, no USB/Ethernet ports, and lower price?
I get the appeal of being a pure eGPU (if you are a mac user, at least) but having a eGPU+dock+charger is really nice!
I'm sure razer will sell dozens of these things, for sure more than they sold of the old core, because mac compatibility, and every other egpu box out there looks like an undergrad project gone wrong.
I’m thinking about this or the v2.
I see the cable from the core to the laptop is only 50cm, which is quite short. I don’t want this thing sitting on my desk, I want it at my feet like a desktop, out of sight (it’s got no usb or Ethernet afterall).
Is there anyway to get a longer physical connection between the laptop and the core x or Core V2?
You’re lucky to live in US I believe? You have this. Always on stock, meanwhile here in Germany store never available since I want to buy it early this year, no one care about me after asking several times to stock it, though there’s some alternative TB3 active cable on Amazon, but I don’t want to fry my core
Thanks Jokansai! My only concern is that cable looks to be rated to 60w, whereas the core X delivers up to 100W? Maybe they will release a 100W extension t3 cable soon.
Hmm, 60 Watt is power delivery you don’t need that for your Blade 15, its usb c doesn’t support power supply anyway. Unless you’re using ultrabook with 8550U like recent stealth that use 65 ac adapter you have only have to check bandwidth and transfer speed that doesn’t decrease with longer TB3 actives cable that mostly issues from longer than 50 cm TB3 cable on eGPU setting.
Got it, thanks again. What's the 100W spec for the CoreX for then anyway?
MacBook Pro, especially 15 one? Or maybe if they refresh it with 6 cores cpu it’ll need more than current 85 Watt ac adapter.
USB-C PD spec is up to 100W, you have a great big supply in the box already, so what would be the point of offering anything less?
The reason I was asking this was because I want to use the longer active t3 cable you can get from Razer as the 50cm one that comes with the core x is too short for me. However that longer cable is only rated to 60w, so I was asking if using a 60w cable would negatively affect performance if we need the full 100w for something (what thing?).
Practically speaking and based on today’s tech, what’s the best external gaming gfx card I can use with the Core X, and what’s the best external gaming gfx card I can use with the Core V2?
Core X Titan V
What's the power rating on this build?
It depends mostly on which graphics card you’re using but with 650 Watt PSU you won’t use more than 650 Watt hours of energy.
looks good for my work laptop when gaming at home
This is better to transform your laptop with the razer core. Hp Printer Support available this and you can add to your system. This provides better graphics.
What sort of cable is used with the Thunderbolt 3 port?
