Hi, I'm kind of new in these things so bear with me if I had a stupid questions

 

I've been researching for a while now about EGPU compatibility with laptop and as the title says, this is a plausible setup that I want to build. I currently own a Dell 7577 Inspiron gaming, and according to the specs it has 4 lanes of thunderbolt 3. For Egpu compability, I check this link and it said it's possible but not guaranteed

I did some more reading in forums, and stumble upon this one

https://egpu.io/forums/builds/dell-7577-and-hp-omen/

 

He's using an omen Egpu and stumble a couple of issues along the way, but somehow manage to make it work. I want to know is there anyone here has tried Razer Core X as an EGPU for their laptop? How good is it? I heard that I should work like plug& play and let the drivers do the auto detect, but just like in the link it doesn't work that way apparently. And lastly, is it compatible with the new turing cards, because it's not listed in this razer support page

I also made a hypothesis that by using an EGPU, my thermal inside the laptop would be reduced since the graphic processing will be handled on the separate external unit (PLEASE, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG ABOUT THIS ASSUMPTION)

 

It comes down to the main reason of getting an external GPU. My laptop starting to throttle and I did some undervolting to the CPU, but still an occasional fps drops and stutter happens. So, if I can use an egpu, then the cooling will only focus on the CPU and let the EGPU unit handle the cooling for that one.

 

Any helpful response would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

It also works with the Razer Core X - why wouldn't it?

There have been a lot of RTX builds: https://egpu.io/builds/

You'd probably need a 1070 equivalent+, to actually see a performance increase. Overall thermals would probably decrease but that doesn't mean your CPU will stop being throttled if that's the underlying issue.

Core x now officially supports rtx cards up to 2080ti, they just updated it on main page  recently, scroll down to tech specs. And about thermal from my experience with laptops with dgpu it’s big thermal improvement.
