Product Description

Desktop Graphics Power – On a Notebook

Nothing impacts gaming, videos, or graphic-intensive applications as much as a dedicated graphics card. Today's all-in-one and notebook computers may be sleek and thin, but their modern designs with integrated GPUs come at a price—the lack of high-performance graphics. Sonnet's eGFX Breakway Box brings the power of a dedicated graphics card to your system; simply add your compatible video card of choice, connect your Thunderbolt 3 computer with the included 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 cable, and enjoy desktop class level gaming performance and video acceleration in your favorite graphic applications.

Power to Play. Power to Work.

Need pixel-busting power to play games? Need graphic power to work? Sonnet's eGFX Breakway Box 550 opens a world of video processing power to your compatible Thunderbolt 3 Mac or Windows PC computer—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 that otherwise would not be able to produce an acceptable gaming experience. For media professionals, harnessing the computational engine in today’s GPU cards is essential to keeping up with on-set and post production timelines. The eGFX Breakaway Box is ideal for supporting the acceleration of special effects, animation, color grading, rendering, and editing. The blazing fast 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) interface ensures a full 2750 MB/s PCIe bandwidth is dedicated to the installed card.

Add Your Own Graphics or PCIe Card

Sonnet's eGFX Breakaway Box features a x16 PCI Express 3.0 slot compatible with a full-length, full-height, single- or double-width PCIe card. The system offers robust support for GPU cards with popular AMD and NVIDIA chipsets. In addition to eGPU cards, the Breakaway Box enables the use of Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe cards (regardless of the card's length or width) such as the RED Rocket-X or AVID Pro Tools|HDX.

eGFX Breakway Box Provides

  • Equivalent to 500W (sometimes 600W) recommended system power
    Learn more about eGPU power requirements - watch the video posted above
  • Two 8-pin (6+2 pin) power connectors
  • Support for up to a 375W graphics or PCIe card
  • Laptop charging up to 87W 

Windows Users: Sonnet has compiled a list of compatible eGPU card PC systems. For details, please check the Specification Sheet under Technical Specifications on this page or visit Sonnet's website. 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).

Mac Users: eGPU acceleration is not supported on a Mac running Windows under Boot Camp. Other than macOS High Sierra, macOS does not yet officially support eGPU acceleration; however, many users have experienced success using the Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box for external graphics and/or CUDA with macOS Sierra. For support details, visit Sonnet's support library.

eGFX Breakaway System Includes: Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box, power cord, 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable, and documentation. Video or PCIe card sold separately.

Cool and Quiet

eGFX Breakaway Box is the coolest and quietest eGFX box on the market with a large variable-speed, temperature-controlled fan that quietly and effectively cools the system. Additionally, the eGFX Breakaway Box supports 120mm x 1, single fan radiators. Water blocks coolers run quieter than active fans; plus water block coolers enable higher overclocking.

AMD & NVIDIA Support

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. Support includes all Thunderbolt-compatible cards with popular GPU chipsets—such as AMD Radeon, Radeon Pro, VEGA and NVIDIA Geoforce, TITAN X, Quadro cards

Certified for Mac & PC

Sonnet's eGFX Breakaway Box is Thunderbolt certified for Mac and Windows, ensuring industry-leading support and compatibility. Simply connect an installed high-performance GPU or PCIe card to your eGFX-compatible Thunderbolt 3 computer with the included 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 cable.
