Razer Core X supports the AMD R9 285, 290..., has anyone tried a 270x?
Sorry for the newby question: I've ordered a Razer Core X, I'm planning to connect it to a XPS 15 7590 - mostly as a multi-monitor dock - maybe for lightweight gaming
I've an unused 270x, shall I try to install it or is better to get a sligtly newer card? (I'm planning to upgrade later to an actual card with virtual link port for VR)
(or I could harvest my old 1070 from my desktop and upgrade later to a 3xxx card)
I've given the 270x a try anyway, it was working out of the box - being unsupported not bad. I did not manually install any drivers, I let windows (2004) install everything for me.

The internal 1650 is delivering about 1000 points, so performance-wise this setup makes no sense, but you can keep your notebook (CPU) cooler and you can connect external monitors and do some 1080 gaming.
I might try the 1070 later or get something newer, I'm going to test it stability wise a bit.
