Hardly, it depends entirely on your use case.

Well the issue I have with this is that Pascal and Polaris are supposed to redefine the mobile lineup's performance. That and Thunderbolt laptops already have, usually, at least a 970M... which is on par with the R9 280X.

Yeah there are exceptions but there are plenty of machines that are well cooled enough and remarkably lightweight enough to carry around every day with good battery life now. Optimus has done well for the laptop lines. Can't say the same for AMD and Enduro but AMD is nowhere to be found for laptops. Here's to hoping that changes. Intel/Nvidia is getting a taaad old. tongue.gif

These external GPU solutions won't start making sense until 2 things happen:

1. Cheaper TB3 eGPU docks.

Razer's dock may be nice with all its black anodized alu, window and lighting. But that price is pretty hard to swallow.

Solutions from ASUS, Silverstone, etc should come soon enough, and hopefully they won't take advantage from the ridiculous price Razer has set the bar at.

2. Actual portable Quad-Core laptops with TB3.

Its a pretty annoying market trend, but for some reason there just aren't any sub 15" notebooks with quad-cores, without dedicated GPU's.
I partially blame Intel's bs marketing of their "U" series notebook CPU's, calling them i3, i5 and i7's while in reality they're all i3's.
The other party to blame are the manufactures just taking advantage of this because most of the consumers don't know any better.
ASUS even showed they could make a 13" quad core ultrabook that isn't overly loud and doesn't throttle, but somehow it never got to market.

This in a nutshell.

While the solution itself is something that consumers (not as a whole, mind you) have been desiring, it just shows how much the manufacturers are out of touch with their market taking this long to get it here, while charging way more than the market is willing to pay for such solutions.

Lets just hope they stick around though so that pricing can calm down.

One of the few companies that sell such laptops are Apple, but using a Mac for gaming has its obvious problems (that and they haven't released their Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptops yet).

One of my friends recently told me they ordered a Razer Core. Seeing as there are so few reviews at the moment, I'm hoping to convince them to lend it to me for a day or two. Anyone have any recommendations for which games and programmes I should run to test it? I don't want to have to pay for anything. Thanks.

And they probably won't release them until they do a revision of their Mac Pro, which is still equipped with TB2.

Its pretty weird that Apple is now completely slacking behind on the move to TB3, you'd think they'd be the first to start integrating it.

i dont understand why these gpu rigs gotta cost so much. like, how hard is it to make a powered gpu dock to a company with the resources. anyways, this is just one of those hipster taxed items. i'll pass.

I found another video, this time a Razer Core + Skull Canyon NUC vs. 5960x tower build: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpB_mfd_JFE&t=4m34s (I skipped to the benchmarks).
