The Razer Core V2 allows gamers to seamlessly transform highly mobile Thunderbolt 3 laptops like the Razer Blade Stealth into a desktop-class gaming experience. A single Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection is all it takes to connect a laptop with the graphics enclosure.

It now features the world’s first dual Thunderbolt 3 internal controller design that separates lanes for both graphics and connected devices, ensuring fluid gameplay. The external graphics enclosure comes with four USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit Ethernet for connecting a wide array of peripherals.

Starting from a block of durable raw aluminum, the Razer Core V2’s chassis is CNC precision milled for an incredibly rigid and compact form-factor.  This compact design encloses a 500W power supply to provide adequate power for graphics and connected devices.  The machine-crafted enclosure and additional cooling fans are designed to work with the graphics card to quickly dispense heat and provide optimal performance.

The Razer Core v2 external graphics enclosure sports a redesigned internal layout that fits an expanded range of taller graphics cards. It now supports the most popular gaming graphics cards, including NVIDIA® GeForce® 10 series and AMD Radeon™ 500 series with XConnect™ technology.

For professional use, the Razer Core v2 now allows users to connect an external high-end desktop NVIDIA Quadro® GPU to Thunderbolt™ 3 eGPU-enabled laptops, harnessing the power of high-performance, professional graphics to dramatically accelerate the workflow and create a truly compact workstation.

Physical installation of GPUs takes seconds with the Razer Core. Its durable aluminum housing slides open with minimal effort, with a single screw that secures the graphics card in place. Razer’s solution helps future-proof laptops, as graphics cards are easily swappable with new components as they become available.
