my question is the topic title.

RTX 3080 OR 6800XT compatible with RAZER CORE X ?

 

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

@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.

@gr8-ride, if your able to get the 6800xt then take it, more affordable, there both about the same specs , probably also depending on the rtx 3080 .

 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.
