New to eGPU. Advice please?
I have recently purchased this laptop:
HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-aw0xxx
@nicolas_demetriou, RTX 2070 Super is currently the best value GPU imo. It will work great with the Razer Core X and your new HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-aw0xxx. The power supply requirement you found is for Desktop build. In an eGPU build, you can take the graphics card TDP and the Power Delivery of enclosure to get an idea of PSU requirement.
@itsage thanks for your time and advice. I didn't really get what you said in the 2nd sentence but confirming that the aforementioned equipment will work was the most important.
TDP = Thermal Design Power. For the RTX 2070: 175Watts (W).
PSU = Power Supply Unit
175W + 100W = 275W. Add 50W in overhead for other stuff = 325W. The Razer Core X comes with 650W PSU which is way more than enough. That leaves 500W for a GPU (subtract 100W PD and 50W overhead).
