Razer Core X Chroma, is it Possible to prioritize USB/Network on the TB3 connection?

So a little backstory.... I bought a Razer Blade 240hz 2070 max-q for "work" when im away (which is very frequent at least traveling once a week), So for home I bought a Razer Core X Chroma and a 2080 ti... The problem is, If I plug anything into the back of the Chroma X [usb ports] (I want to plug my Razer Mamba Elite, Razer Blackwidow X, Razer Laptop Stand and Razer Goliath Chroma XL) all the lights and devices just disconnect and reconnect all the time.

 

I contacted Razer and they said "Because you have a 2080 ti its stopping the USB's from working, because of how much data" even thou I dont even play games. Is there a way to prioritize the USB Ports rather then Bottleneck it with the GPU?

 

So that my Devices dont constantly disconnect and reconnect etc etc. (I very very rarely ever play a video game... so I am not too worried about ingame performance too much!)

Why don't you plug all your USB stuff on a USB hub (very cheap) connected to one of the USB port of your Razor Blade, so that the thunderbolt port of your Razor Core is used for eGPU only? I have this kind of setup for my Razor Blade Stealth connected to eGPU through Akitio node, and this works very well at full speed...

I mean I could....

But my idea was.... that I would only need to hook my power adapter and Thunderbolt 3 Cable up to the laptop, (TB3) to external display, and my mouse and keyboard etc etc all hooked up to the eGPU's USB's, I do not actually use a USB Hub. Hence why I bought the Razer Core X Chroma over just the Razer Core X........

I'm getting the same problem with a Radeon VII

I've heard Chroma's USB ports has bandwidth problem with external drives. But after I received it, external drive works fine, but keyboard/mouse/USB audio constantly disconnect and reconnect.

To be honest, I really don't care if GPU is working on it's max performance all the time, I just want a real one cable solution, which is the reason why I bought core x chroma instead of core x.

Is Razer aware of this issue? Hopefully it could be solved with a firmware update in future.
