Razer core x Compatibility with USB c

Hi! Would the Razer Core X work with my laptop? It doesn't have thunderbolt port but it has a USB C one with DisplayPort. It doesn't matter if it doesn't run at full potential, I know there are limitations with the bandwidth. It also has a Intel UHD Graphics card. Would it be compatible?

Dear John, is it possible connect the Razer Core X to the usb4 on my mini pc?

The Razer Core X is an external graphics card enclosure that connects to a computer via Thunderbolt 3. Unfortunately, since your laptop does not have a Thunderbolt port, it won't be able to connect to the Razer Core X.

While your laptop does have a USB-C port with DisplayPort, it won't be able to provide the necessary bandwidth to support the Razer Core X. Additionally, the Intel UHD Graphics card on your laptop is integrated into the motherboard and cannot be replaced or upgraded.

If you're looking to boost the graphics performance of your laptop, there may be other options available to you, such as a USB-C graphics adapter. However, keep in mind that these solutions typically won't provide the same level of performance as an external graphics card enclosure like the Razer Core X.
