Won't win any points for aesthetics, but hopefully the price is right!

The early 2000s called, they want their 3.5" IDE to USB box back 🙂

That said, it doesn't look too bad on the desk and it seems quite small, which is always nice.

I secretly like the early 2000s aesthetic, but I think it's gonna change. That just looks like an off-the-shelf Mini-ITX case going by the size of the backplate.

I'm more sad there are no Type-A ports on it to be used for docking.

Did I read that right? 45 watts?

It's 45W of Type-C charging power, not a 45W PSU. We don't know what PSU it is using yet. Enough for an XPS 13 but Macbooks expecting 60W may have issues.

The low 45W limit for Type-C charging hints they are pushing the limit on an External Brick, maybe 200W? The connector looks like the 330W on some Clevos however.

It seems that there's a 1060 mini as well from kfa2/galax for the Asian market

I'll send them a mail and ask about the TB and 1060 card.

Thanks for clarification! :]

Galax replied to me about the eGPU and told me it was still under development and asked me to wait for them to release some more information about it. 

 

They do do have the possibility to male it very small if they want to as they could develop or modify a graphics card of their own after their needs.

Nice, hopefully we will see more like this especially if they are cheaper than full blown docks.

Has anyone got their hands on this yet?

They’ve collaborated with Silverstone. Metallic casing appeals me much more than plastic. There seem to be two standard size fans. Unique cooling solution. I am afraid the GPU is not replaceable.

I found a review:

Only 1.38kg, 230W external PSU

 


KFA2 variant, Glax's European brand, different product code 60N0000000TK

Goalque, it's 1.38kgs without the 230W PSU which tends to weigh around 1.1kg. So total weight is ~2.48kgs, around that of the Sonnet Puck RX570 or Aorus Gaming Box. I don't see any pricing or US availability info.  Could be a nice quiet mini eGPU option.

I wonder when someone will launch and AMD RX 580 based eGPU at the size of Aorus Gaming Box with power delivery at least 87 watt. That would be the bestseller eGPU on the market. Is it too hard to think this and make a real product.

Love the size, love the 1060 (feel its the sweet spot for Ultrabooks) but my god that case I ugly as sin... it's quite hard to get a simple box wrong but they have managed it!

I see it on my country's websites. 
GALAX Gaming Box , Galax Box
Just wondering if someone has purchased and has opinions on it? I'm looking for small compact EGPU's to take with me on my trips (since my work computer is an X1 Carbon with no GPU). 
My options are:
1. Aorus 1070 Box (always sold out on Amazon)
2. ZOTAC Amp Box Mini (cons: big power brick, no power for charging)
3. GALAX Gaming Box (cons: no usb ports, not sure if provides charging)
4. Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Puck (Pro: supports charging, Cons: decent size power brick, no usb ports)
5. Lenovo Graphics Dock (cons: I heard lots of compatibility issues along with can't update the NVIDIA drivers.) 
My first choice is Aorus 1070 since it has the best graphics card + no power brick. But it's always sold out.

I was wondering if anyone had the GALAX before I make my decision.
