There is a preorder possibility (599 USD with free shipping) but only for US and Canada locations...

all you need to do is pm Brian Ngo, who is in charge of the Aorus Community Network on fb:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/AORUS/

I talked with him about a similar preorder for EU locations - he told me he would contact the Gigabyte EU branch and return to me as soon as he knows something

For anyone in Europe (specifically Germany)  it looks like it is available for 679 euro (and in stock?).

From what I heard, this box can't plug & play with MacBook 2016/2017. They said it was made for PCs, but they will wait until High Sierra come out, they will make a test, maybe we will have firmware upgrade for macbook at the end of this year. 

For VNs: It also available on 14th

As far as I understand, at least at the moment Apple is only supporting AMD cards officially. AMD drivers are being backed into the MacOS itself, and eGPU functionality is validated and supported by Apple and AMD. Which means NV eGPU may or may not work properly - hard to say...

The Thunderbolt 3 board in this Gigabyte Gaming Box enclosure should work with macOS. The bigger question is what has Nvidia been doing to catch up. I remember Nvidia would release new web drivers within 24 hours of a macOS build. It's been more than a month and several 10.12.6 Beta builds and we have not seen anything.

It means two things. Either Nvidia management said "Fuck It!" following Apple's announcement of eGPU support using an AMD GPU...or Nvidia engineers are all hands on deck working on 10.13 rather than 10.12.6.

This is exciting and consumers stand to benefit. My guess is the Apple official eGPU box is not a box at all. It's in the form of the next Thunderbolt Display, custom board and non-upgradable.

 Thank you for sharing this video. The HQ vs U CPU comparison will of course favour the HQ CPU. It also masks at least three underlying performance issues with TB3 itself which we've uncovered:  https://egpu.io/thunderbolt-3-news-for-egpus/#tb3-perf . The TB3 eGPU has specific requirements to ensure it's performing at it's highest potential.

Ordered one to try and use with my yoga 720 4k. At that price it's an absolute steal considering 1070 prices are still inflated from cryptominers.

I'm really curious to hear how this works with a 2016/2017 15" MBP with Boot Camp
