2015 15" MacBook Pro (R9 M370X) [4th,4C,H] + RX 590 @ 16Gbps-TB2>TB3 (Razer Core X) + macOS 10.15.4 & Win10
@globalclient930, The screen is amazing! Graphics are fantastic and it it runs smooth. In comparison to many screens in the range up to 700-800,-€, I would never change! The only thing is, for latest games, you need a Radeon Vega 64, Nvidia 2070 or higher (yes Nvidia in Windows is possible, but not in MacOS).
actually I am not getting the Vega 64 to run (see above). So I turned back to 1920x1200 with my RX580 and get about 60 FPS.
I have deactivated the dGPU (with qoalque’s efi shell) and so the fan gets not that loud and starts much much later than with the dGPU activated. But I did not monitored this.
I would choose this way again: much smaller case than with a regular PC, I am able to play on the couch and a minimum of costs.
@globalclient930, I bought the razer core x chroma with a discount of about 100,-€ as a b-Ware. So the difference of round about 30,- € was it worth. The Led-lights are nice, but nothing important. It could be, that the fan and the psu are a little bit more quiet. But I was never been able to compare this myself.
Anyway, today I ordered a new case fan, because the build in ... well I think it’s too noisy.
But I would buy a Razer Core x again, because of the top quality and the easy handling.
@marco_cirillo, This looks similar to build I'm going for. I'm very new to egpu and to those in my situation, hope to give further notes.
I'm looking to mainly use the build to speedup my video editing using Premiere/after effects plus play some games on the side. For the games nothing too recent, BioShock collection under win10.
my budget is £500-ish. Have you had any other issues recently?
