    TB3 active cable, to support max 40Gbs speed and max 32gb like gpu data in PCIe3 4 lanes laptops like the Blade Laptop, and max 100 Watt charging function.

    I can’t decide between getting a dedicated pc box or using the core v2 or core x. Can you use an sli setup in any of the core boxes and, even if you could, would the RB15 cpu be a bottleneck for a high end sli setup through a core?

    If you’ve room PC is way better performance to connect mobo and gpu. Egpu setting is still limited by many factors, TB3 bandwidth max only PCIE3X4 lanes vs desktop (16 lanes?), Laptops CPUs bottlenecked, and lame FPS on high frame rate like 100~FPS. For example overwatch on Blade 15 1070 is between 120 to 150fps, when I test 1080ti with it lower FPS was worse, around 100fps (don’t remember high FPS but it should way better on PC setting). The only one I like from egpu setting beside strong performance on 4K, it made system cooling with Blade way better, last time I measured both CPU cores and 1080ti was 70ish which I don’t see on Blade cpu and 1070 dgpu setting which its cores are hitting often 90 on my games like AC Origins, FFXV and Far Cry 5.

    Awesome piece of hardware for desktop performance at home while using a mobile gaming rig. Although i feel the PSU could be slightly more powerful. 650W doesnt seem future proof enough...

    What? This is one of biggest PSU you can found on eGPU enclosure nowadays, and it’s using normal size Fans that user can easily upgrade it them self, which GPU are you using? I bet amd Vega that power hunger. I think it could maintain Vega 64 too, btw with 500 Watt PSU on my core v2 I can run 1080ti without problems.

    Razer Core X is Mac Compatible and doesn't have USB ports or chroma lighting, but is cheaper.

    Core V2 has USB ports, ethernet and chroma, but you pay for it. May not be mac compatible (varies).

    So I can asume Core V2 is a better option for me if I don't have a Mac? I have a gaming laptop (not razer) so if I buy the Core V2 I will take more advantage of my laptop right?

    The Core V2 just has a few extra features - lighting, USB ports, ethernet. But you're paying for them. The question is do you just want a desktop graphics card?

    Also make sure you check if your laptop's thunderbolt port supports it!
