Supports Standard and Large PCIe Gen3 x4 Cards

The PCIe (x16) slot accepts full-length, full-height, double-width cards with enough space available inside the enclosure for both standard and large graphics cards. The four PCIe 3.0 lanes and the Thunderbolt 3 interface are capable of transfer rates up to 40 Gb/s.

400W SFX PSU

The built-in power supply provides enough power for the AKiTiO Node (~10W) as well as for graphics cards. If the standard 75W through the PCIe slot is insufficient, two extra pairs of 8-pin power connectors are available inside the AKiTiO Node that can be connected to the GPU, providing a total of about 390W.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB Type-C at speeds up to 40 Gb/s, creating one compact port that does it all - delivering a fast and versatile connection to virtually any dock, display, or data device. In combination with the AKiTiO Node, this makes it possible to upgrade your regular laptop or mini-PC and achieve a performance that usually requires high-end workstations or specialized gaming computers.

question

I am trying to use with my Asrock Z370 motherboard (i7 8700) and the asrock thunderbolt 3 aic pcie card. The gpu I amd using in Akito is geforce 1050 ti. There seems to beno recognition of the akito. Has anyone tried that and can help? Thanks.
Asked by: Francis C.
egpu.io is likely the best resource to answer solve your problem. It is likely that you need to download or update the Thunderbolt 3 firmware and drivers for your motherboard. I would start there. I have used the enclosure on a few devices and virtually nothing has been plug and play. I have always needed to update the Thunderbolt 3 firmware
