Installation steps (what did you do to get it all going?)

In my case it was pretty much plug-and-play:

1. Slot GTX 1070 into Razer Core X

2. Plug Razer Core X into external display

3. Plug Razer Core X into XPS 15

4. Update to most recent NVIDIA driver and tell windows to connect with EGPU

Comments (eg: how has the eGPU improved your workflow or gaming)

Originally prior to getting this laptop, I was using a Thinkpad P50 with a Quadro M1000M as its dGPU. This was a fairly absymal experience for gaming, even on the lowest settings. Now I'm able to play most of the games I want to on high or near-high at 70-100 FPS, which is much better, and this system as a whole is more portable than my previous attempts at getting decent gaming performance, which is important as I will have to move sometime in the next year or so.

Are you getting any issues with the XPS and the core where the usb hub on the core would stop working after sleep or a restart? How about any issues regarding how the egpu wouldn't be detected after a restart and you have to restart again?

I haven't personally had any issues with that, but the version of the core X I have doesn't have a usb hub built into it. Instead, I use a separate powered USB-A to USB-C hub

@voidwhisperer, What hub did you use?

Hi !

Thanks for sharing this.

I just got my Razer Core X Chroma here (plugged with a 1080) to go with my XPS 15 9500 and I must say I'm not 100% happy.

I have stability issues with it, like the eGPU kinda "rebooting"/resetting (causing the external screen and USB peripherals to shut down and then go back up) at random times. Then after 3-4 reboots of the eGPU, error 43 on the 1080 in the Device manager and then I had to reboot Windows.

I had to deactivated in the Device Manager the 1650 Ti and it's better now ... (no more random reboots). Seems like random conflicts between both the cards ?

Still one issue : sometime, when I unplug it to go back to laptop-only mode, the XPS goes black with just the mouse (and spotify still going on in the background etc). But nothing to do ... I must hard-reboot it by pressing the power button for 20sec.

So if I may ask a couple of questions since you have an XPS 15 9500 as well :

  • Do you have such problems ?
  • Did you let the 1650 Ti enabled ?
  • Do you always plug AC adapter in addition to the TB3 cable or do you plug only the TB3 cable (since it delivers 100W) ?

Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi guys, I've just got my new 9500 and I'm trying to figure out if it works properly with my Asus ROG Station Pro and GTX 1080.

The good thing is that the Heaven test looks OK, please take a look here:

https://ibb.co/pZBHZ3Q

Now bad things:

1.RDR2 seems to run at 30-35 FPS on Ultra and 40-45 FPS on Medium.

2. RDR2 seems to detect only 4GB of video memory of my 1080 instead of 8GB. WTF?

My previous 9575 detected 8GB of video memory and was playable around 50 FPS on Medium.

So, something is definitely not right here, please help me to figure out what exactly

p.s. sorry, Heaven is underperforming too 🙁

Here’s some general help desk type info. 

Check that Windows Power Mode and Nvidia Control Panel settings are set to Best Performance.

Use a standard 18” length TB3 cable (included with your enclosure)

Do your gaming on an external display for eGPU performance.

If you previously were using a Thunderbolt docking station with your laptop, you’ll need to adjust your BIOS to work properly with your eGPU.

Thanks for the tip! Question about external display. Will it make that much difference comparing to my laptop display?

Definitely, you'll have a much better experience gaming on an external display attached to your GTX 1080
