When GPU acceleration is needed on the road, you can conveniently pack a Puck along with a notebook in your backpack or computer bag. The Puck connects to your computer with a single Thunderbolt 3 cable (included) and, for added convenience, also provides 45W of Power Delivery to power and charge the computer*, enabling many users to leave their computer’s power brick behind.

The Puck includes one Thunderbolt 3 port, exploiting its 40Gbps interface to offer the best-possible eGPU experience; and features three DisplayPort ports and one HDMI port, leveraging AMD’s Eyefinity multidisplay technology to support up to four 4K displays with its single Radeon GPU!
