So, moments after we posted our review of the current Core V2 paired with a Razer Blade Stealth laptop comes the announcement of the next version of the tech with the Razer Core X. With a lower price point, additional power (in wattage) and support for even the largest GPUs - it looks to bring the cost down of desktop power for your laptop.
A great way to future proof, thanks to wider aluminium shell that can accommodate 3-slot wide graphics card - the big boys. Like with the Core V2, it's a plug-and-play device compatible with any Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection on a laptop. This new revision also houses a massive 650W ATX power supply with 100W of power for laptop charging.
