I want to use this for gaming to replace my Lenovo Y700 15ISK that I bring around when I travel. It’s bulky and overdue for an upgrade since my graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. That’s where eGPUs come in mind.
To those that have a similar mindset for their setup, what eGPU do you use?
I want something that’s portable enough when I travel and I can upgrade the graphics card over time.
After looking around for the best models, it looks like the Razer Core X is the best one out there based on review. But it’s 14+ pounds which seems impractical to carry around given my current gaming laptop is 6-7 pounds with my charger.
Instead of the NVIDIA GTX 1080 that it comes with, I went with a more powerful GPU, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XC Gaming. Make sure you get the one that has two fans only, otherwise it won’t fit if you get the three fan model.
I did not, this is a whole new setup compare to my integrated gaming laptop that I’m moving away from. I got the eGPU yesterday and it’s very nice and compact. Working on having this fit in my laptop case. If anything, it comes with a nice case of its own to carry separately.
Right now I’m awaiting for my new Framework laptop to ship to test it all out. I’ll try to get around and posting those results once it’s all here.
