How Much Does It Cost To Add A Desktop GPU To A Laptop

One week ago, AMD was announcing its collaboration with Intel for developing a standardized technology that would allow adding a GPU on a laptop, via a Thunderbolt connector. That technology was named XConnect and the first of the devices that will benefit from it was unveiled, the Razer Core GPU dock.

With the announcement of this piece of equipment, which will finally provide a laptop the potential to run games as it should be, came a small impediment… its price.

The dock is available at a price of $500, or $400 when bundled with certain laptops models from Razer. That is a lot, considering that you will then need to buy a video card which will be used in this system. Preferably one with an air cooling system, Fury X is not supported, neither the ridiculously late cards, such as Titan Z.

Besides the Thunderbolt connectivity, Razer Core GPU Dock comes with a 500W source for the video card, 4 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB Type-C port and even an Ethernet port. Requiring an external power supply, it means that the dock isn’t exactly that portable, so don’t even think about playing games at desktop quality while traveling by train or by car.

Almost makes you wonder why would anyone bother buying it since you can get a compact PC that has similar components and eventually costs half the price.
