PowerColor Devil Box (Thunderbolt eGPU Enclosure) $223 AC+MIR

$223.00
+3 Deal Score
2,855 Views
$390, 71019CBS30 coupon code knocks off 30%=$273, and then $50 rebate=$223. One of the lowest prices I've seen for an external GPU enclosure- and like the newly released HP Omen Accelerator, this one also has a 2.5" SATA bay built in. Plus it'll supply up to 60 watts of power, laptop permitting.

Note: Reviews are hit-or-miss, discussing loud fans and required firmware upgrades, but if you're okay tinkering it could be worthwhile.

I cant think of a lot of uses for this since thunderbolt 3 connections aren't that common. Would be cool with a VR headset to turn any computer with enough processing power VR ready but that would really only be if you didn't want to buy a VR ready laptop. Seems cheaper to get the card packed in.

Take a look at how many eGPU options there are: this one, Razer Core, Akitio Node, Sonnet EGFX, HP Accelerator. There's a fair amount of demand.

So you are essentially spending an extra 223 on top of your graphics card to make it portable, and still need to buy a laptop with good enough processing power and memory to fully utilize it. Seems pretty niche to me, unless you are a hardcore gamer and business traveller.

I know I would have had one if they were around when I started college, the ability to take a thin laptop around to class then walk back to my dorm or house and plug it in and greatly increase my gaming performance would have been perfect.

I've been looking into this exact use case. I'm not a hardcore gamer (I'm casual), but having the ability to buy a 2-in-1 with integrated graphics and then plugging into a dock with a decent desktop card seems pretty awesome.

This is a small case, a card, and a small power supply for $223 AR. I wonder if you could custom build something for about 1/2 the price?

The real cost is the Thunderbolt 3 controller, which isn't sold on its own.

Oh, that's a bummer.

Yeah, I meant whatever card the graphics card is plugging into and the sata card for that bay, if there is one.

hopefully the prices drop in 2018 when Intel stops charging royalties
