    Hi, i've got Acer G9 (593) with no intel graphics, no optimus. Only Geforce 1070. And i've got USB-C with Thunderbolt 3. Will i be able to connect external graphics card like RAZER CORE (http://www.razerzone.com/store/razer-core) or any other box with external gpu.

    It's not officially supported so the chances of getting it stable are low. And with a 1070 it's not really worth the hassle.

    eGPU won't fix your problem unless it has it built in you won't be able to get optimus.

    No point. A 1080 performs slightly higher than a 1070 over TB3.

    Pretty pointless considering a 6700HQ already bottlenecks a 1070 in some games.

    Battlefield 1
    The Division (to a lesser extend)
    Ashes of the Singularity (ok this is more circlejerk fuel than anything)
    GOW5

    Well, Battlefield 1 on ultra is getting around 100 fps in 1080 and 40-45 in 4k.

    GOW5? You mean Geard of War 4?

    Precisely

    Also,

    CIties: Skyline
    Total War: Warhammer
    Arma 3 (Everything bottlenecks here - even the 7700K can't keep a 1070 fully fed)
    StarCraft 2
