Add a High-performance Video Card to Create Your Own Personal eGPU Workstation
Transform Your Thunderbolt Computer Into a Graphics Workstation
Whether you’re editing, rendering, color grading, animating or creating special effects, many of the pro applications you use rely on desktop and workstation graphics (GPU) cards to do the heavy lifting in processing data. Unfortunately, many popular computers are equipped only with integrated graphics or low-power discrete GPUs that bottleneck performance when performing these tasks. Happily, there’s a simple path to greater productivity—add a Sonnet external GPU (eGPU). The eGPU Breakaway™ Box 750 and 750ex Thunderbolt 3 to GPU PCIe card expansion systems boost your eGPU-compatible computer’s graphics performance by connecting a high-performance GPU card to your computer via a single cable.
With each new generation of GPU cards, users can look forward to a step (or leap) forward in performance. Less predictable is how much power they will require to operate—better performance frequently requires increased power. For eGPU users, power consumption can be a concern. Don’t limit your future card choices—choose a Sonnet eGPU Breakaway Box 750 or 750ex. Equipped with 750W power supplies, these Sonnet chassis easily support the highest power demands of latest GPUs and have plenty of extra power to support GPU cards from generations to come.
Two Models. Your Choice:
Both eGPU Breakaway Box models are Thunderbolt Certified and include a Thunderbolt 3 cable to connect the system to your computer. The 750ex provides a handy connection hub for USB devices and Ethernet connectivity.
