The Razer Core X Chroma is a colorful, capable, and expensive GPU enclosure

The $ 399 Razer Core X Chroma is the ultimate in laptop accessories: it's an external graphics card (eGPU) box that, with a single Thunderbolt 3 cable, can significantly increase the graphics performance of a thin laptop and provide a variety of additional USB ports and connections.

Like other eGPU enclosures, the Core X Chroma arrives empty but full of promise. In addition to the cabinet, you will need a computer with a Thunderbolt 3 port and an AMD (the only option for macOS users) or the Nvidia desktop graphics card. These vary in price from around $ 200 to $ 1,200, depending on the amount of energy you are looking for.

This is not the cheapest or most expensive eGPU in Razer. Core X Chroma divides the price difference between $ 299 Core X and $ 449 Core V2, and its feature set borrows its best features, then refines them slightly.
