About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

All credit to Little_Little_Lee for finding this £20 cheaper that previous £319.99 I posted this evening (and £339.99 I paid from Amazon this morning!?)

Brand new GPU, opposed to the refurbs for £299.99 recently posted, so peace of mind (for me at least) that the GPU has not been preveiously used in a rig etc. Bit annoyed as bought one off Amazon from same supplier for £20 extra, which might help anyone who prefers Amazon over eBay.

Cheapest ever been I believe, and some retailers still asking for twice as much.

    Can this take a 3070 or a 3080

    Replying to

    Incorrect answer, this dock came out before the 3xxx series cards, which is why the support list only lists up to a 2080 - As long as the dimensions, and TDP of the cards are fine, it will work, mind you this will be pcie gen 3 and not 4 (won't make a massive difference).

    In theory as long as you're not using more than 400W of power, and the power connectors work with your GPU, this will work.

    I'd say a safe yes for the 3070, and a *maybe* for the 3080 depending on size and power connector config.

    Anyone got any experience of the egpu’s? Do they work ok ? Any weirdness I need to know about?
    Yes and yes.

    eGPU that use Thunderbolt (TB) tend to be Thunderbolt 3 and there are no TB4 (which essentially would perform the same)

    Laptops with Thunderbolt tend to be in TB3 for older laptops and TB4 for Intel Gen 11 & 12. They will be Intel CPUs.

    With the TB3 laptops it works but you loose a lot of the GPU performance and won't match a lesser dedicated GPU in the Laptop. So cost wise it is often better to get a gaming laptop. You also find that the CPUs in older laptops don't do well on modern games.

    With TB4 Intel moved the TB bits onto the CPU and it goes a lot better (less loss at the laptop end). It still works with TB3 very well. You get much more of the GPU performance. People with things like the Surface Pro 8 do this sort of thing (see YouTube) and 12th Gen CPUs are so much better again.

    My own aim is a 12th gen 2-in-1 for portability and then a dock back at home (I have a Razor Core X eGpu box)

    Does anyone know if this would work on an imac?

    Replying to

    Yeah, you would need to sell the card and get a compatible AMD card.

    probably a dumb question but asking ... .can this be used with non thunderbolt usb c ?

    What do you use this for?

    To substitute the onboard GPU of a laptop or tablet (assuming the eGPU is higher spec'd than the mobile GPU, otherwise not worth it) for playing games/other graphical applications in a workstation setting (i.e when using a laptop as a desktop). Alternatively, the Nvidia cards are well set up for machine learning using the likes of Tensorflow... which is what I intend to use mine for, instead of risking burning out the GPU in my laptop, since they're high intensity tasks not meant to be running on a laptop GPU for extended periods!

    Can you connect this directly to an external monitor?

    Conflicting reports whether or not this thing has a HDMI port.
    The GPU has the external monitor ports, so yes. You can also just use the display on the laptop.

    Depending on your laptop you may find a better experience on internal or external displays.

    Looks good price wise as equivalent to a Razor Core X that can be had for ~ £220 when on sale. And you get an RTX 2060.

    Bought this 2 weeks ago, working like a dream on my 13” 11th gen i5 machine. The only complaint I have is that it is quite loud, considerable coil whine coming from tbe 2060 even under little load. I will be upgrading to a 3060Ti soon which should sort the issue.
    Undervolt it.

    Would this work with the Ideapad Gaming 3 15ACH6?
    There's one USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port on it. (edited)
    Unfortunately you NEED to have a Thunderbolt Port, preferably version 3 as v2 will bottleneck (v3 is USB C shaped but not the same - Thunderbolt supports significantly higher speeds than USB 3), This does have a USB C port but that is to support peripherals and laptop charging up to 100W.

    You can swap the PSU in these for something quieter and more powerful, then look around for a compact GPU that will fit the enclosure

    Out of stock
    If you want something similar keep an eye on Amazon for the Razor Core X. This often gets a discount to low 200 pounds and even below.

    I picked a warehouse one up for £180 that has a little scuff mark on it.
