EXP GDC TH3P4G2 Thunderbolt GPU Dock Review

EXP GDC TH3P4G2 Thunderbolt GPU Dock Review

The TH3P4G2 is an excellent option for an all-in-one eGPU docking station solution or platform for a custom eGPU enclosure. The compact design enables the use of SFX power supplies, without limiting GPU length. Furthermore, the USB hub, daisy-chain support, power delivery and internal fan header combined with the superior JHL7440 Thunderbolt Controller results in what is probably the most feature-rich eGPU available on the market. While SFX power supplies are readily available, they are more expensive than their ATX counterparts and are not easy to come by second hand. Furthermore, even the shorter SFX PSU cables are an eye-sore without an enclosure shielding them. Aesthetics have always been a downside of an open design.
EXP GDC TH3P4 Thunderbolt GPU Dock Review

EXP GDC TH3P4 Thunderbolt GPU Dock Review

The TH3P4 has some excellent features. It is extremely small, enables the use of cheap and portable DC power supplies and contains the elusive ability to daisy-chain Thunderbolt devices with the eGPU itself being the first device in the chain. The inclusion of the superior JHL7440 Thunderbolt Controller was a welcome surprise in such an affordable device. However, the design and complete lack of bracing for attached devices leaves much to be desired from an otherwise welcome addition to the market.
Wikingoo eGPU Review – DIY Thunderbolt 3 External GPU

Wikingoo eGPU Review – DIY Thunderbolt 3 External GPU

The Wikingoo eGPU is a pleasant addition to the eGPU market. As a standalone unit, it is priced well below the popular eGPU enclosures from big brands. The inclusion of a standard ATX power supply mount is excellent. ATX power supplies are cheap and readily available, or even able to be recycled for free from old systems. Furthermore, there are no limitations to graphics card size or power delivery, and the open case can be used as is, mounted under a desk or be modified into a sealed enclosure.
Mantiz Saturn Pro Review – King of the Ring

Mantiz Saturn Pro Review – King of the Ring

Priced to be the most affordable full-featured eGPU enclosure on the market, the Mantiz Saturn Pro delivers a knockout punch in performance and value. It showcases the best of the four-year evolution of Thunderbolt 3 eGPU technology. With a unique combination of good looks, unrivaled expansion ports, and exceptional flexibility, the Saturn Pro is truly king of the ring.
AORUS RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box Review – Cooler than Cool

AORUS RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box Review – Cooler than Cool

Gigabyte's AORUS RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box is an affordable solution relative to piecing together an RTX 2080 Ti and a premium external GPU enclosure yourself. By no means is it the best value for eGPU users. Yet by all means, it is the highest-performing eGPU available today and the only liquid-cooled option. The ultrabook and monitor you pair will need to be equally as capable in order to make the most use of this eGFX. Enabling eGPU gaming at 144Hz in FHD, 100Hz in QHD, and 60Hz in UHD, this Gaming Box keeps up with desktop alternatives while retaining the versatility of the ultrabook. Ultimately to choose the AORUS RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box is to answer Outkast's call for rebellious originality, "What's cooler than being cool?"
NetStor HL23T-Plus Review – Singular Focus

NetStor HL23T-Plus Review – Singular Focus

I commend NetStor for setting out to build the perfect eGPU enclosure for the Radeon VII. They have accomplished this goal. The problem is no one loves the Radeon VII as much as NetStor does. This singular focus narrows the HL23T-Plus’ target market to Mac professionals who need the computing power of the Vega II architecture.
Razer Core X Chroma Review – Absolute Unit

Razer Core X Chroma Review – Absolute Unit

As of summer 2019, there are two types of eGPU buyers: those who prioritize a single feature and those who buy the Razer Core X Chroma. Unless you want the quietest or smallest eGPU solution, you can't go wrong with Razer's latest offering. Priced at US$399, it's $100 more than the very competitive base Core X. This added cost is well worth the refinements in expansion I/O, RGB, and liquid-cooled GPU compatibility. This absolute unit of an eGPU enclosure is destined to eat up market share. With the Core X and Core X Chroma, Razer delivers a one-two punch that knocks everybody out. If other eGFX vendors don't up their game soon, our eGPU buyer's guide will be topped by Razer products heading into 2020.
VisionTek Mini eGFX Review – Mobility meets Utility

VisionTek Mini eGFX Review – Mobility meets Utility

At $350 MSRP the VisionTek Mini eGFX is a good value for enthusiasts who have been looking for a small eGPU enclosure. It truly offers a one Thunderbolt 3 cable solution. Dual Thunderbolt controllers sweeten the deal as the only alternative to the Razer Core V2 that retails at $500. While the looks are nothing to write home about, its design function is to do the hard work behind the scenes rather than be the center of attention. In a small market and with even smaller dimensions, the VisionTek Mini eGFX excels by combining mobility and utility.
2018 Mac mini Review – Heedlessly Renovated

2018 Mac mini Review – Heedlessly Renovated

  After four years of neglect, the Mac mini returned to the spotlight in late 2018. The miniature headless Mac hasn’t fared well, now taking on a gray pallor and running a fever. Its Intel 8th generation 65W processor is an internal flame the cooling system can barely manage. Some ... Read More
