@nikita_ar4ikov, Hi!

I have Asus zenbook 13 UX325ja as well.
I wanted to know if eGPU Core X works well with it or should I buy a different eGPU ?

 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Hello! I'm sorry for the long waiting time of answer)
So, There is no problem to interract with Core X and Asus UX325JA, but there are 2 thing, that you should know before buying and using it.

1. In some cases, UX325JA is supplied with TB4 Preview Chipset version (in my case, JBH8040R, https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/186251/intel-jhl8040r-thunderbolt-4-retimer.html) and some of the features of TB4 is reduced (like priority of 32GB on PCI-E). |
2. Referring to my experience ( https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/cannot-connect-razer-core-x-to-asus-zenbook-ux325ja/#post-93693) don't use Razer Core X TB Cable as well, not standart 0.5m or 2m. You should better buy Apple Thunderbolt 3 Cable (in other cases, looks at Belkin TB 3 cable, but be careful). At this time I still don't know what was the problem of using another cable. 

There is still one problem, that I can't fix myself for 2 month. https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/bsod-when-trying-to-output-the-video-from-egpu-to-external-monitor-asus-zenbook-ux325ja-10th4c8t-2060s-32gbps-tb3-razer-core-x/

UPD 1: On the my UX325JA motherboard - two JHL8040R controllers

 UPD 2: In my case, I'd bought UX325JA with i5-1035G1 on board. The base TDP limit that had been installed by Intel on it, is 15W. And there is no problem to use Core X eGPU with UX325JA for software that requires more GPU acceleration than CPU. But if your intentions consist in the gameplay and better game experience, you should think about undervolting and overclocking your CPU (using ThrottleStop for example), but also be careful of degradation of your CPU crystal in a long time. 
Do I think that the problem is the thing, that Intel sets up low TDP on their mobile CPU and vendors set up one-cooler cooling systems? Maybe Smile
