Yeah, the USB issues are annoying as hell. I wonder if it is an issue at Intel's level.

Update: I received more information on this new Gaming Box. It's branded as Gigabyte instead of AORUS. The GPU is a mini-ITX RX 580 with a custom cooler similar to the GTX 1080 version. My guess is it has an 8-pin power connector. Photos & this text added to the opening post.

Absolutely interested in this! Planning on buying an Aoros Gaming Box 1070 to run with my 2016 13" MBP in a couple of weeks time, but I'm apprehensive due to the lack of Nvidia support in MacOS.

This would be perfect! Especially as it's so hard to get these Radeon cards in stores atm.

Discount code would be ideal, but if you go ahead with a group buy, would shipping to Australia be an option?

Any idea if they'll get around to fixing error 12 for boot camp on the 2017 13 inchers?

If so, this thing would be perfect

Looks like Aorus/Gigabyte  has been taking note of the custom builds slotting AMD R9 285 or RX56 into their  emptied Nvidia GTX1070/80 chassis but are now sourcing/designing a more powerful RX580 to fit instead:

 

This is great news.  Gigabyte is bringing smallfactor that will appeal to  Mac owners.  Let's consider other competing AMD eGPU offerings and their prices:

 

So if Gigabyte target US$499-US$699 then we may start seeing a lot more RX580 Gaming Box builds.  Here we'd get a tiny chassis inclusive of the PSU that's not much larger than the Puck, 100W PD and a proper RX580 GPU. Good stuff.

@nombrescreeno this is what I need too... its up too Apple though (the latest firmware on 15inch 2017 makes bootcamp plug and play with AMD cards but I tried again with my 580 and 13 and no luck).

Apple also need to work out a way to power the LG Ultrafine's from an eGPU in macOS (which works very well in Windows), or does someone know of a way I have missed? I wonder if it would be powered in clamshell mode?

Finally registered just to throw my hat in the game. I would be interested in either option.
