Swaping out Razer Core X PSU for better performance on RTX 3070

Dear all,

 

Just a quick question. I'm running an Ice Lake CPU on a Galaxy Book Flex (i7-1065g7). I have it paired with the Razer Core X and an RTX 3070. to my understanding, the PSU on the Razer Core is a 650W unit. I was wondering if upgrading to something like a 850W PSU (like a Corsair) would A, be possible and B, offer any extra performance boost (assuming the RTX is being choked for power on the 650W unit).

 

Thanks for the input.

@falx927, The 650W PSU can handle most graphics cards (including RTX 3070) just fine. No benefits replacing it with a higher output PSU.

@itsage, sounds reasonable. Thanks for the input, I kind of figured that was going to be the response but I just wanted to double check. Thanks again.
