Razer Core X Chroma eGPU brings on the RGB lights, USB ports

Laptops are getting thinner and some PCs are getting smaller. While that may be a boon for portability and space economy, there's only so much you can cram inside of them. Thanks to technologies like Thunderbolt 3, however, you can keep computers small and slim and offload the brunt of the work to external components. With Razer's latest Core X Chroma, Windows laptop and MacBook users can not only offload graphics intensive work to the GPU enclosure but even charging and data transfer as well.

There isn't any support for real-time ray tracing in the GTX 1660, but that's okay because it more than makes up for that missing feature in its price.

AMD Radeon VII benchmarks put 25 games through their paces

AMD made a variety of announcements during CES 2019, but perhaps the most exciting one was that of the Radeon VII.

When the card was first announced, AMD actually listed benchmarks obtained from 25 different games, but they were doing a bit of hiding in AMD's announcement.
