As I already had an AGA I just hot-plugged the TB3 cable of the Razer Core X and rebooted.

Comments

I am posting this for comparison purpose. Please see my other post for the configuration with the AGA.
The performance is ~6-7% lower depending on the benchmarks. For an unknown reason the minimum FPS are higher with the Razer Core X @ 1080p.

Coming next: XPS 13 [11th] with Razer Core X
