nando4>> The dGPU-equipped 15" Spectres have a limited number of PCIe lanes with only 2-remaining to attach the TB3 controller to. Hence this is a 16Gbps-TB3 implementation,

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share the success I had with my HP Spectre x360 and the Razer Core. It was pretty straight forward.
I got a blue screen at first, but after two reboots, the drivers were automatically installed and updated.

My setup:

HP Spectre x360
Nvidia Geforce 940MX

Razer Core TB3

Sapphire Dual-X R9 280x

Thanks so much for info.  Few questions if you don't mind.  Just bought same exact hp model, great del from best buy, half off, $700, open box but with no power cord.  Anyway, how is gaming with the egpu n razor?  What exactly did you buy to get the razor to work like a real gaming lap top.   lil confusing for me, not sure what I need exactly for this model.  Just want play real pc games on this hp x360 .  Is it worth it?  Not worried bout vr, just want some decent graphics with low lag etc.  Thanks.

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
