Installation steps

setup was realy easy and basically plug & play:

  • used Windows Update and HP Support Assistant to update BIOS, drivers and software
  • Windows recognized the Razer Core X and GTX 1060 immediately and installed the Nvidia software / control center
  • set eGPU to primary / default GPU in Windows via Nvidia Control Panel



so far, I am realy happy with this setup:

  • Spectre x360 13 is ultra portable and satisfies my daily needs for mobility and performance
  • eGPU installation was very easy and enables the occasional desire to play some games

I hope this build guides helps other community members.
