An external GPU (eGPU) enclosure allows you to connect and use a desktop-class graphics card to your notebook. If you plan on editing video on a portable PC and need a little more power, this is a great option so long as you have a spare Thunderbolt 3.
Bring Your Own GPU
Why you can trust Windows Central
The Razer Core X is our top-recommended enclosure for an eGPU, striking a balance between design, features, and affordability. This is a great way to avoid shelling out thousands on a more powerful laptop. This enclosure comes rocking Chroma RGB lighting and a reliable 700-watt power supply, enough to handle the best graphics card options available.
The Razer Core X has full support for the latest NVIDIA RTX and AMD GPUs, making it ideal for video editors on PC or Mac. If you're looking for something a little more affordable, the ASUS XG-Station-PRO will be able to house the latest GPUs and allow you to enjoy the same video editing experience.
