I sell Sapphire R9 Nano in perfect condition. There is not even dust on this fine device. It has a high quality aluminum chassis and is very quiet. It plays very well with eGPUs, supporting plug'n'play on both MacOSX and Windows.

R9 Nano Package

A Benchmark which shows the computing power (64 CUs). This is without any overclocking.

Correct. It's plug'n'play once you installed the great tool purge-wrangler. Smile I was referring to the fact, that you can hot-plug and hot-un-plug it. How is that called? hot-pluggible?

Most people refer to plug and play as "works without any additional user involvement besides physically plugging in the device". I guess mentioning hot-plug/unplug would be sufficient (since NVIDIA's are also hot-pluggable, just not unpluggable). Seems like a decent price for a great GPU.

@oliverb thank you for your offer which sounds interresting.
Before considering to buy it, I need to clarify if the card will work with my system and if it is not a decline of output compared with my current system.
1. Do you know if the Saphire R9 Nano will work in a Mac Mini 2014, with Mojave (and purge-wrangler indeed) and a TB2 to TB3 adapter.
My plan is to replace my EVGA GTX 1050 Ti, which works perfectly with Win 10, however not with OS 10.14.2.
2. Concerning the benchmark of 19539 you displayed I am not able to interpret it compared with the score of 1949 of the GTX 1050 Ti I measured with Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0.
Is the performance similar or better?
Thank you.
Cheers

1) It will work with your Mac Mini 2014 both in Windows and MacOS. You will need purge-wrangler for MacOSX (Legacy AMD support) and there are no problems with Mojave. TB2->TB3 adapter is no problem, either. 

2) If you tell me the exact settings in your Heaven Benchmark 4.0 test where you got 1949, I will be happy to do the same test with the R9 Nano on a System with Mojave and TB2->TB3 adapter.  Be assured that the R9 Nano, of course, is much faster than a 1050 Ti (about double for games and almost triple for computing).

I didn't have a GTX 1050 Ti, but had a GTX 1050 and I can post you a comparison of this Luxmall Ball Test here:

Thank you for you fast and detailed reply.
After going a little bit more into the details of the R9 Nano I noticed it requires 175W power supply.
My currently used Akitio Node Lite provides a maximum of 120W.
It seems I can not take this very good offer.
Thank you for your explanations.
Cheers

The count-down is already running. There are only a few days left then I will have it sold elsewhere. Again it would be nice to sell it here.
