Razer Announces Revised eGPU Dock, the Core V2

Razer today announced a doubling down on their push towards high-performance eGPU enclosures, which look to allow users of mobile computers (read, laptops and similar form factor) to enjoy the full power of a desktop-level graphics adapter. The Core V2 maintains the same visual design as the original Core, and to be honest, users would be hard pressed to find any relevant changes.

It maintains the exact same specifications, but Razer say they have re-engineered the internal components so as to allow for increased width of graphics cards (which are converted to height in the Razer Core). Alongside a reworked port layout on the back of the unit, those are all the changes that can be gleaned. The Core V2 will be available soon for $499.

The original Core was also overpriced as heck. Considering that eGPU alternatives start at ~270$ (AKiTiO Node, but it does not have extra ports) and the HP Omen Accelerator is 300$ and does everything this does (except looking as sleek), the price is ludicrous.
