Do I need to reboot my laptop every time I connect the Razer Core X?

The Razer Core X is Plug and Play. This means that as long as your laptop is compatible and has the necessary graphics card drivers, you do not need to reboot your laptop every time you connect to the Core X.


Does the Razer Core X feature Chroma lighting?

No, the Core X does not feature any type of Chroma or other lighting feature.

Can I use Razer Core X with similar Nvidia GPU together with the Razer Blade built-in dGPU to produce a single output (SLI)?

If you have a higher performance GPU in Razer Core X, you can elect to use that GPU, but the built-in dGPU will be disabled.

Is a Thunderbolt Cable included with the Core X and how long is it?

Yes, a .5-meter Thunderbolt Cable is included with the Core X. A longer 2-meter / 6ft Thunderbolt cable is available and sold separately on the Razer Store. Visit

What version of the Thunderbolt 3 controller is being used in the Razer Core X and Razer Core X Chroma?

There are two current versions of the Thunderbolt 3 controller:

  1. Alpine Ridge
  2. Titan Ridge

Both the Razer Core X and Razer Core X Chroma use the Alpine Ridge version which is technically the older controller version of the Thunderbolt 3. However, being the older controller does not make it any less. In fact, it has the same bandwidth with its newer kind, the Titan Ridge. Both versions feature a max speed of 40 Gbit/s.

Also, Alpine Ridge is what is recommended by the Intel’s Thunderbolt team to be used by OEMs in their eGPUs like the Razer Core.

Using the Titan Ridge will not give any benefit on Razer’s eGPUs, it is more likely for the host system (Laptop side) and other Thunderbolt devices.

What GPU’s are supported by the Core X?

Razer Core X supports a wide variety of GPUs from both AMD and NVIDIA. We recommend reviewing the list of compatible plug and play graphics processors below.

Is the Razer Core X supported by Synapse 3?

Yes, it will be recognized in Synapse 3. However, there are no user settings or adjustments for the Core X within Synapse 3.

Does the Razer Core X work with a Mac?

Yes, they are compatible with Thunderbolt 3 Macs running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 or later and requires a compatible AMD graphics card.

Take note of the following:

  • MacOS High Sierra 10.13.4 doesn't support eGPUs in Windows using Boot Camp or when your Mac is in macOS Recovery or installing system updates.
  • eGPU support in macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 is designed to accelerate Metal, OpenGL, and OpenCL applications that benefit from a powerful eGPU. However, not all applications support eGPU acceleration. This means eGPUs such as the Razer Core will not power all applications on the internal display and a monitor must be connected to the external graphics card running only your game to reap the benefits of the GPU. Check with the application's developer to learn more.
  • Razer Chroma lighting and Ethernet is not currently supported for Mac as Core X does not feature Chroma or an Ethernet connection.
