Razer releases entry-level eGPU $299 eGPU enclosure with macOS support

22 May 2018 - 10:09 AM

Razer has announced the Core X, a new entry-level eGPU enclosure which is compatible with Macs with a Thunderbolt 3 port. It is available for purchase from their website.

Quote

Give your thin and light laptop the power of a full gaming rig. Whether you’re hunting down enemies in an apocalypse or designing your own 3D world, the Razer Core X delivers desktop-class graphics to your laptop instantly. Compatible with Thunderbolt 3 Windows 10 or Mac laptops …

Quick specs of the enclosure:
  • $299 USD price tag
  • 650 Watt power supply (large enough to power even the most power hungry cards such as a AMD Vega 64 or Nvidia Titan Xp)
  • Official support for both macOS and Windows 10
Review of the enclosure by eGPU.io

What makes this enclosure interesting is that I believe this is the first enclosure to natively support both macOS and Windows 10.

Windows gaming via Parallels or VMware Fusion?

How have people found the performance of Parallels and/or VMware Fusion for light gaming? I noticed both versions advertise 3D acceleration and specifically mention gaming as one of the applications.

10.6 Snow Leopard Download

Does anyone know of a reputable download link? I've misplaced my disk, and I have an old 2006 iMac (one of the first intel macs) that I want to re-install OS X on.

High Sierra vs Bootcamp Partition

26 September 2017 - 08:00 AM

Has anyone had any issues with their boot camp partition after upgrading to High Sierra? I installed the High Sierra beta on my MacBook a few months ago and it totally frakked my Bootcamp partition. Was getting driver errors, registry errors, etc. I then wiped the whole computer and went to regular Sierra and re-installed Bootcamp.

Have people's upgrades been going smoothly? I assume it was just a beta issue, but I rely on my boot camp partition a great deal, so would like minimal downtime.

Vmware Fusion 10 coming this fall

Looks like the rumours of VMware Fusion's demise were greatly exagerrated. Fusion 10 comes out this fall with support for High Sierra, including Metal 2 support/optimization.
