Razer Core AMD GPUs Support Announced

Following the announcement of the Razer Core earlier this year, Razer has stated that its external graphics enclosure will be compatible with "virtually every popular desktop graphics card from AMD and Nvidia", and now AMD has officially revealed which GPUs will be supporting the Core.

AMD has announced an all-new feature of the Radeon Software 16.2.2 (or later) graphics driver called XConnect, which makes it even easier for end-users to connect and use an external Radeon graphics card through the Razer Core or any external Thunderbolt 3 GPU enclosures with a compatible ultrathin or 2-in-1 notebook.

The company has also revealed which Radeon GPUs will be supported by AMD XConnect technology, including:

  • Radeon R9 Fury
  • Radeon R9 Nano
  • All Radeon R9 300 Series
  • Radeon R9 290X
  • Radeon R9 290
  • Radeon R9 285
Once the Razer Core launches, which is rumored to begin shipping next months and cost $500 without a graphics card or $400 when purchased with a Razer Stealth laptop, users will be able to easily connect or disconnect it via the Thunderbolt 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive.
