—Connect a Demanding GPU or Other PCIe Card to a Thunderbolt 3 Mac or PC—
Sonnet’s eGFX Breakaway Box supports any Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe card — up to full-length, full-height, single- or double-width in size — but was designed specifically for bandwidth- and power-hungry AMD and NVIDIA GPU cards. With a GPU card installed, the eGFX Breakaway Box can significantly boost the graphics performance of your eGFX-compatible portable or all-in-one computer. The Breakaway Box is also perfect for large non-GPU cards such as the Avid Pro Tools|HDX or RED ROCKET-X.

—Plenty of Power—
The eGFX Breakaway Box includes two auxiliary power connectors (one 8-pin and one 6-pin) to support cards requiring up to 300W of power (equivalent to 500W [sometimes 600W] recommended system power) — enough for most Thunderbolt-compatible GPU cards. For notebook users, the Breakaway Box also provides 15W of upstream power for charging your compatible computer.

—Ready for Work and Always Game to Play—
For pros, the eGFX Breakaway Box harnesses the computational engine in GPU cards that accelerate special effects, animation, color grading, rendering, and editing. For gamers, the Breakaway Box is ideal for enabling graphic-intensive gaming on computers (such as thin/light notebooks) that otherwise would not be able to produce an acceptable gaming experience. The coolest and quietest graphics card expansion system on the market, the Breakaway Box features a large, variable-speed, temperature-controlled fan that quietly and effectively cools the installed card — perfect for noise-sensitive environments. Additionally, the Breakaway Box supports 120mm water block coolers, which run quieter than active fans and enable higher overclocking.
