RTX 3080 OR 6800XT compatible with RAZER CORE X ?
@elel_penaflorida_mariano, I've been meaning to ask, what laptop are you using with your Razer Core X Chroma and the RTX 3080? I'm looking at running an RTX 3080 in my Razer Core X Chroma, with my Blade 17 Pro (2080 Max-Q). I run a multi-monitor setup at my home office (laptop display, 4K-43 inch display and third 1920x1080 display). When I'm running off the on-board 2080 Max-Q, the Blade 17 tends to heat up pretty good. So using the eGPU should help keep temperatures down (it worked on my old Razer Core with a previous Blade 14 with GTX-1060 onboard).
I've also been debating running an AMD RX 6800 XT instead of an RTX-3080, only because I haven't played with a Radeon card in years, and simply because finding an RTX 3080 is nearly impossible for the foreseeable future.
where do you reside? alot of local computer shop do raffles for 3080 to win to buy here in norcal.
im using a razer advanced 15 2019. 240hz for my razer core x chroma. yup its alot cooler with the egpu, espicially using a external monitor.
@elel_penaflorida_mariano, I'm in Canada (Toronto), so local shops occasionally have an RTX 3070 or RTX 3080 around. They actually have a few RTX 3090s around, but A, those are about $2,000 CAD, and B, I don't think my 2019 Blade 17 Pro (late 2019 i7-9750H, 240 Hz display, and my external monitors) would justify the $2K spend on the 3090. One of the ONLY things that are pushing me more in favor of the RTX 3080 is that I use NVidia Broadcast regularly for the AI powered noise cancelling on my microphone / streaming setup, and just thinking that drivers would be cleaner with the RTX-3080 + onboard 2080 Max-Q variant vs having both AMD Radeon drivers and NVidia drivers loaded. On the flipside, I do like the idea of a Radeon card again. Any driver / stability issues with your Blade + Razer Core X + RTX-3080? I've heard some folks have had issues with the mobile drivers vs desktop drivers....
@gr8-ride, oh okay then since u got a razer max q nvidia just go with the rtx 3080, so far i have no issue, im just still trying to figure out why i cant run both dgpu and egpu with no stutter while playing. i had to turn off the dgpu 2070 max q so i dont get no microstutter. when i had a 2070 super on my egpu. i was able to run both without no stutter . this time i had to disable dgpu from laptop . im also thinking the latest drivers for nvidia, its trippin hard.
