Razer Core External GPU Enclosure Pricing Announced

 

The pricing and availability for Razer's External GPU Enclosure have been announced, revealing a price of $399 when bundles with a Razer laptop and $499 when purchased alone. 

Razer's External GPU enclosue will become available in April, but will be usable with Non-Razer products. The Razer Core uses AMD's new XConnect technology, meaning that all products that comply with the standard will be able to make use of the unit.  

The Razer Core, and all other future XConnect GPU Enclosures, will be completely plug and play, meaning that compatable devices will not need to reboot or restart before making use of this unit and the contained GPU. 

 

     The Razer Core is the world’s first true plug and play Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) external graphics enclosure, allowing you to transform your notebook into a desktop gaming experience. Featuring plug and play support with compatible graphics cards, you won’t need to reboot your system every time you connect your Razer Blade Stealth to Razer Core. Connect to the future with the most advanced and versatile external desktop graphics solution available.

 

AMD Announced XConnect External GPU Tech

 

XConnect technology does not require the use of any proprietary cables or implementing some other new technologies into mobile devices but works using the existing Thunderbolt 3 standard, allowing a mobile system to connect to an external GPU with 40Gbps of bandwidth, which is equivalent to a PCIe Gen 3 x4 connection. 

External XConnect enclosures will be fully upgradeable, allowing the user to change their GPU in the future as games become more demanding, giving laptop gamers the option to simply replace their GPU instead of replacing their entire laptop. 

 

 

Razer will be the first company to launch external GPU enclusures and laptops that support this technology, with their Razer Core eGFX Enclosure supporting GPUs that have up to a 375W TDP. 

The Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook will be the first shipping laptop that supports this technology, with the notebook supporting either a 12.5" 1440p or a 12.5" 4K touch display with an Intel i7 6500U CPU.

The external dock and the ultrabook look quite nice and understated. Bit odd for razer to do that.Quote

So I'll need to spend more than $2100/€1900/£1500 for the total setup before it starts to make sense? And that's without the monitor, mouse and keyboard.. This box is way too pricey, but then again it was to be expected when it says Razer on the sideQuote

Have you even tried their laptops? They're the one thing that they make that usually feel well built.

As I said last time, the price they're asking for the ultrabook on its own is very reasonable considering the hardware involved.Quote
