Razer is lifting the curtain on the new Core X Chroma, its latest graphics enclosure, that allows you to increase the game graphics power of your Windows or macOS laptop computer by utilizing the added Thunderbolt 3 cable. The Core X Chroma improves on last year’s Core X by providing customizable Chroma backlighting, a more strong 700-watt power source, and USB-A and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. On the back, you will instantly notice the four interfaces, which can be utilized to power and use desktop accessories with your laptop computer or charge your other devices.
The Core X’s most important Thunderbolt 3 cable also charges USB-C laptops up to 100 watts and is situated beneath the Gigabit Ethernet port, which you may use for faster downloads than those you’d get over Wi-Fi. For all those of you keeping score, Ethernet support is a coming feature from the company eGPU, the Core V2, which started in 2016. The Core X Chroma supports a broad range including Nvidia’s RTX, GTX, and Quadro collection as well as AMD’s Radeon and Radeon Pro GPUs for Windows PCs. Regrettably, Macs connected to the Core X Chroma will only have support for AMD’s GPUs due to constraints within macOS that are a small letdown.
