Razer Core X Is A Cheaper External GPU Enclosure That Also Supports MacOS

Add More Graphics Power To Your Laptop

The Razer Core has been out for a while now and it is a great option if you need a laptop but also are a gamer. The drawback of the original Razer Core was that it was very expensive indeed and you did have to get a separate graphics card in order to do anything with it. Now we have the Razer Core X, which is a bit cheaper version and it also supports MacOS.

In order to plug this into your laptop, you need to make sure that your laptop does indeed have a Thunderbolt 3 port. That is very important for compatibility and without it, the Razer Core X is just a useless Black box. Razer Blade Stealth, Razer Blade, and Razer Blade Pro will work fine with the graphics card enclosure.
