Build quality is superior to the Spectre x360. I initially bought the Spectre but returned it after multiple build quality issues were found. The trackpad was too loose, the left hinge was crooked, and one of the CPU fans died after 1 week. I now have the Yoga 920, and I'm extremely happy with it. It performs exceptionally with my Razer Core + 1080.
would it be able to work with razer core 1? i am considering buying one.. Thanks.
Thank you for replying! i also have a lg ultrawide uc98 with thunderbolt, do you recommend using a displayport or thunderbolt adapter to connect the razer one to external monitor?
Regarding whether to use DisplayPort or Thunderbolt, in terms of functionality it probably doesn't make much of a difference for the display, but if you connect to the monitor via Thunderbolt and the monitor has a hub, you'd be able to use its USB ports.
I'm using a Razer Core v1 with a new model (Kaby Lake-R) Spectre x360 15" and it's been nigh flawless. Not quite perfect, but close. I've been pushing the setup pretty hard, too... color grading and rendering a feature film shot in 8K using DaVinci Resolve.
There's no graphics card with Thunderbolt output. You can only connect the eGPU to your LG ultrawide uc98 with a DisplayPort or HDMI cable.
That's probably a good idea if you're gaming, but there's also the option of using a Thunderbolt port on the laptop if it has two.
Since my main application has been Resolve, I've been getting about the same performance using the internal monitor as with the external monitor connected directly to the eGPU.
