Connect a High-Performance Graphics Card or Other Bandwidth-Hungry PCIe Card to a Thunderbolt 3 Equipped Computer
Sonnet’s eGFX Breakaway Box, a Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe card expansion solution, supports any Thunderbolt compatible PCIe card, but is designed specifically for bandwidth-intensive graphic video cards. The Breakaway Box enables all the popular GPU cards that support connecting to a computer over Thunderbolt such as AMD Radeon R9 and RX and NVIDIA GeForce GTX7, 9 and 10 series, providing GPU support for computationally-intensive applications and games.
Sonnet has compiled a partial list of computers compatible with external graphics cards. ASUS, Razer, and Intel report their compatible computers. Sonnet has compiled a list of compatible computers on our page. These computers have either been Sonnet tested or user reported. If a listed computer has an optional discrete NVIDIA GPU, then it may not currently be compatible with external NVIDIA GTX graphics, even if the model is listed as compatible (these models should be compatible with AMD cards). Please check specification sheet.
Graphic Intensive Gaming
There’s no need to carry a heavy and expensive gaming laptop to have a great gaming experience—just plug in a Breakaway Box and add the GPU power you want when you need it! By delivering much higher frame rates for smooth game play, 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. When used with computers that properly support eGPUs, accelerated graphics can either be displayed on your notebook’s own display panel or on external monitors. And, unlike with gaming laptops, when the next generation of GPUs rolls around and you are ready for another performance boost, simply upgrade the GPU card—nobody should have to replace their computer just to keep up with the latest in GPU technology.
Ready for Work, Coolest & Quietest eGFX Graphics Card Box on the Market
The Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box is the coolest and quietest eGFX box on the market—with its large variable-speed, temperature-controlled fan that quietly and effectively cools the installed card, the Breakaway Box can be comfortably used in noise-sensitive working environments
40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 Performance
Thunderbolt 3 is a leap forward in every way. Whether you’re editing 4K video at high frame rates or blasting aliens out of the sky, you can now transform your notebook into a true desktop experience. With up to 2750 MB/s available bandwidth, the Breakaway Box exploits its 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface to offer the best-possible eGPU experience, or handle the most demanding, highest performance PCIe cards.

This box is pretty quiet on it's own and the MSI GTX1060 fan barely makes any noise. I believe the power supply is user upgradable if you need more power down the road.
The box is also much better looking in person than the photos make it look!
Provided TB3 cable is a bit short, but seems like it is good quality.
Very well priced compared to competitors.
My only complaints are that it is a bit louder than I expected (but to be fair its keeping my card nice and cool), and its interior fit and finish isn't the best. Also the PSU could be better, though so far it is doing its job well enough.
If you have a laptop with a decent CPU and a TB3 port, I think it's a great option!
still stuck in mac os sierra and some times when booting into mac os it just goes to a black screen and if you ever plug-in a display the whole system crashes i hope as time goes on it gets with nvidia drivers
TL;DR: This thing rocks.
My one con is that if I move the case around while it is turned on the power cord seems to move just enough to cause the breakaway box to power off. This shouldn't be to much of a problem since I don't plan on moving the case while it is turned on very much.
The case doesn't feel cheap, the power cord is long which is nice. The TB3 cord is kinda short but it needs to be for TB3 to get full speeds and the inside of the case is very spacious to make upgrading to bigger cards possible if they continue to get even bigger than they already are!
I love how the case turns itself off and on with my Nuc!
