This B&H Kit transforms the included Intel Mini PC NUC into a gaming or video-editing system by providing the AkiTio Node Thunderbolt 3 External PCIe Box. The kit comes with Intel Core i7-7567U performance and lets you install user-supplied components, such as one dedicated graphics card, up to two memory modules, and two storage drives. The AkiTio Node is compatible with PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics cards and connects to the NUC system via Thunderbolt 3 technology, so you can use the power of your GPU rather than an integrated Intel HD Graphics 650 chipset on the NUC.

  • Akitio Node Thunderbolt 3 External PCIe Box for GPUs

    Connect an external graphics card to your computer using the power of Thunderbolt 3 with the Node Thunderbolt 3 External PCIe Box for GPUs from AKiTiO. Once connected, your system will be equipped with additional GPU power, enabling it to do things that are normally handled by a high-end workstation or gaming computer. If you're a video editor or colorist, a dedicated GPU helps reduce the time it takes to render footage and for VR enthusiasts, your system is better equipped to handle headsets and higher framerates. This housing utilizes a PCIe x16 slot that can support a full-length, full-height, and double-width cards and operates using an integrated 400W power supply. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 / USB Type-C cable.

    General Features

    Thunderbolt 3 for fast transfer speeds up to 40 Gb/s
    One PCIe 3.0 x16 slot supporting full-length, full-height, and double-width cards
    For use with standard and large graphics cards
    Built-in 400W SFX power supply helps provide extra power to the GPU
    PCIe 3.0 x16 slot supplies up to 75W of power
    Four lane PCI Express 3.0 compliant interface
    Removable back panel for double-width cards
    Carry handle to easily transport the device
    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.

Furthermore, Intel has designed this NUC with a compact form factor so you can mount it behind a VESA-compatible monitor with an included mounting bracket, letting you maximize desktop space.

    The Intel Core i7-7567U processor features two cores that operate at a stock speed of 3.5 GHz for handling everyday apps. For demanding software programs, each of the cores can run at speeds of up to 4.0 GHz.

The Thunderbolt 3 connection transmits data at a rate of up to 40 Gb/s and utilizes a reversible USB Type-C design, letting you connect with USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 cable the first try. To complete the multimedia experience, 7.1-channel surround sound is provided through the video connections and a combo headphone/microphone jack. Other notable connections include four USB 3.0 ports for a keyboard, mouse, printer, and external storage drive. If you need more USB ports, there's a USB 2.0 header to support an optional adapter with two USB 2.0 ports. Aside from wired connections, Bluetooth 4.2 is on board so the system can wirelessly connect to speakers, mice, and other Bluetooth-enable devices.

    On the exterior, the NUC is outfitted a built-in microphone along with a multi-colored LED ring, so you can personalize it with a color you want. There's also an integrated card slot for reading and writing to microSDXC memory cards. For accessing networks, the NUC7i7BNH is equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. In addition, Intel includes an external 65W wall-mountable power adapter for powering the NUC.
