ASRock will be showing the world's first Thin Mini-ITX form factor – RX570TM-ITX/TBT graphics card, which adapts with AMD Radeon™ RX570 graphics card and supports Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 technology.

The RX570TM-ITX/TBT graphics card is not only the first graphics card with a Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C interface which supports 40Gb/s transfer rate and power delivery, but it also features 4 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and SATA 6Gb/s interface. The RX570TM-ITX/TBT graphics card is based on the Thin Mini-ITX concept. With this graphics card, All-in-One PC manufacturers can develop their own Thunderbolt monitors with 3D performance and power charging with less effort. Moreover, it would be able to fit in a mini ITX chassis. By connecting a notebook through Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C interface, it helps to increase the notebook's 3D computing power and charge the notebook at the same time.

Going to build one of those up @itsage?  Looks like you can get something smaller than your InWin Chopin!!!

The RX 570 is an outstanding card. It's thee middle class card. It's useful for content creating, gaming (FullHD) and lot of other useful things. Of course, you can't play newest games in 4k with highest details, but you can play them. It's big leap from the RX 560, much more than the numbers suggest.

I wonder if it can be put into a TB3 enclosure with full functionality? Or even better: Into a Sonnet Breakaway Puck?

@omardesu There's a few unanswered questions with this new product. I'm wondering whether ASRock could sell it without an enclosure. Since there's only one Thunderbolt 3 port, it's likely for upstream to a host rather than downstream to a TB3 monitor.

@eightarmedpet Unfortunately this does not have a second Thunderbolt 3 port for monitor output. ASRock's claim of world's first TB3 graphics card is misleading. It's a very similar concept to the Sonnet Breakaway Puck mainboard. The ASRock RX570TM-ITX/TBT mainboard is worse in terms of upgradability. Instead of using a MXM card, the GPU looks to be an on-board component. In that case, we have seen Lenovo TB3 Graphics Dock and Blackmagic eGPU.

I think ASRock is marketing this product to monitor vendors rather than directly to consumers. Integrating this board to a monitor would make a lot of sense. You essentially have an AIO like an iMac without the processor.

Ahh rats.. thought it was too good to be true... I was getting quite confused as to what exactly I was even looking at, but you are saying it is what I thought it was - not a TB3 GPU at all, but kind of a Mobo with built in GPU.

Your monitor integration explanation makes sense, thanks for explaining!

”Moreover, it would be able to fit in a mini ITX chassis.”

If true and other vendors follow, then it can be considered as an upgradable eGPU.

How exactly is this the world's first TB3 graphics card if this is just another non-upgrade-able eGPU? By the term, Sonnet did it a long time ago, as did Lenovo.
