Upgrade your Thunderbolt 3-equipped notebook's graphical capabilities with the eGFX Breakaway Box from Sonnet. The eGFX Breakaway connects to notebooks and ultra-compact desktops via a Thunderbolt 3 connection to provide one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, so you can install a user-supplied dedicated graphics card for gaming or creating 3D visuals. For broadcasting environments, the slot can accept a video capture card. To support a wide variety of cards, Sonnet has designed the eGFX Breakaway with ample space to house one PCIe card that features a full-length, full-height, and double-width form factor.

Powering the dedicated graphics card and even your notebook can be accomplished with the built-in 550W power supply, which delivers up to 87W of upstream power for recharging your notebook's battery. The power supply sports two 8-pin PCIe power connectors to support PCIe cards requiring up to 375W of power. Aside from power, the eGFX Breakaway comes outfitted with a variable-speed fan that cools all the internal components while staying quiet. Included along with the eGFX Breakaway is a 1.5' (0.5m) Thunderbolt 3 cable to help you connect with your computer.

    eGFX Breakaway Box with 550W Power Supply is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Complement to MBP 13 I was torn between getting an MacBook Pro 13 or a 15. I love the portability of the 13 but knew I'd miss the power of a discrete GPU. eGPUs to the rescue! It was a long wait until this bad boy's release date, but it was well worth it. I paired this with a Radeon 580 Gaming GPU and a 27 Apple Cinema Display. Now I have both portability and power when I need it. Having to restart MacOS High Sierra when I plug it in is a minor inconvenience, but that's my only gripe -- and not the fault of this eGPU.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expect top quality from Sonnet Transforms my 3 lb. ThinkPad X1 ultrabook into a graphics workstation powerhouse! Tested with GeForce 10, Quadro P4000 and Vega cards. GPU benchmark performance is very close to real workstations with x16 bus despite x4 lane PCI limitation of TB3 connection. Faster cards yielded faster benchmarks indicating to me that x4 lane bottleneck shaves about 10-20% performance but doesn't plateau with faster GPU's; at least not for 1080 or Vega. Power supply is industrial equipment quality and cooling is quiet and effective. 550W version includes two 8-pin power connectors.
