    Question Will XG2 external GC dock work on G501vw/jw?

    Hello guys,
    I was hoping if you could answer the my question: Will XG2 external GC dock work on G501vw/jw?

    I plan to buy a g501vw once it released on my country and When I heard that the XG2 will be released later on , I also plan to buy it later since we are talking about a desktop grade GC for the laptops which will boost the gaming experience much better.

    My dilemma is that I dont know if xg2 will work on g501vw since they said that it needs 2 connections of Thunderbolts? Or usb 3.1 type C? Im not really sure about it since I dont have any idea on these things,

    Please help me if theres someone in asus could clarify this


    Thanks

    I doubt it, it seems like you need 2usb c ports with internal switching to pcie for the xg2 to work, I imagine that the vw model only has one c port was deliberate in this regard so people wouldn't get confused

    There's a higher likelihood that razers core will work provided that the g501vw's bios supports gpu switching as it's a pure thunderbolt 3 implementation
