Gigabyte’s much anticipated eGPU is finally here. The Aorus GTX 1070 gaming box is unlike other external graphics solutions currently out in the market as it comes with an embedded GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card inside. It provides real plug-and-play convenience and is moderately priced.

The Aorus eGPU separates itself from most run-of-the-mill external graphics enclosures because it comes pre-installed with a factory-overclocked GTX 1070 graphics card. Users no longer need to look for and pay for extra hardware as it doesn’t come empty-handed. Its Thunderbolt 3 support improves laptop graphics and it boasts of 40 Gbps of data transfer speed and up to 100 W of power thanks to the built-in100W of power 450 W PSU.

The diminutive gaming box’s plug-and-play feature disregards the need of rebooting the PC, allowing for swift and easy connections. Customisable RGB Fusion-powered colour lighting is also included on the side of the enclosure for aesthetics. The unit can also be used as a docking station, and it can handle multiple external displays thanks to a pair of dual-link DVI ports.

Speaking of connectivity, Gigayte’s new eGPU comes with three USB 3.0 ports and an additional Quick Charge 3.0 port that is exclusively available for mobile charging purposes. The QC port should be able to provide up to four times the speed of basic chargers.
