Desktop graphics: Razer Core X

The gram 17 only has integrated Intel graphics, which is fine for most purposes, but if you need a little more power then you'll want to look towards an eGPU. The Razer Core X is an enclosure for a desktop graphics card that hooks up to the laptop over Thunderbolt 3 and works in tandem with the processor in the laptop to deliver power for professional use or even gaming.
