Razer officially gave its Core external graphics enclosure a $500 price tag this evening. The dock will cost $100 less when it's purchased with a Razer Blade Stealth or 2016 Razer Blade notebook. The Core is available for pre-order now, and it'll begin shipping April 15. The dock connects to compatible devices using a Thunderbolt 3 port.
Blade owners who want to pair their notebooks with a Core will need to bring their own graphics cards to the table. Those cards can't be any longer than 12.2" (310 mm) or consume more than 375W. The Core also adds four USB 3.0 ports and a Gigabit Ethernet jack to the connected PC. Intel's just-announced Skull Canyon NUC can hook up to the Core, as well.
