Just want to pass along that the Vega Nano seems to be working just fine in my gigabyte gaming box.  You will need an 8 pin pcie to 2x 6+2pin pcie adapter.

I added 6 Nichicon solid aluminum 2200uF in-line caps (low ESR, high capacitance, high ripple) - hopefully that adds stability to the mix.

Not sure if this has been posted anywhere yet - if so, mods, please feel free to move thread.

The vega nano is awesome - no idea why gigabyte isn't putting this card in their gaming box, it is PERFECT.

Nice. I use the R9 Nano in 1070 Gaming Box (sold GTX1070). The only reason I have no interest in upgrading to this one is that I have only ever purchased full-fat AMD GPUs. The RX Vega Nano is only Vega 56 and hence has some transistors disabled.

Owned HD6970, HD7970, 2x R9280X, 2x R9 Nano, and screw Nvidia big time. Dodged a bulled with my first GPU when I made the decision to opt for HD6970 over GTX580, never looked back.

Does the Vega series of cards have similar issues when running in bootcamp as the 580 does?

@itsage come on champ, spill the beans on the Vega based mini egpu you know about. I'd be tempted to switch monitors if its a looker.

Good sir can you explain what the nichicon caps are for.  I had the chance to buy this for 449, but I hesitated because I didn’t know if it supported.  I feel so stupid.   I kind of just want to end my life and quit this whole thing. Last month it was bad I checked Newegg everyday. It’s of no use.   This whole month been sad and utterly worthless. Powercolor doesn’t say anything about their next stock.

caps are to better regulate power delivery... you can check other mod sites/google for better DIY guides/explanation for that sort of thing.

Answer me please!!

Yeah just to enhance reliability - no idea if I needed to do the mod or not.

So far, things have been good - it runs a little hot so I turn the vega fan up a bit with the radeon tuning tools and it is still WAY quiter than a razer core and rock solid with the additional fan speed.

Highly recommended!

? Sorry it's not for sale

I've been using this vega nano gaming box for a few weeks now and it really is awesome, especially when you adjust the power limit down to keep the temps in check otherwise things get VERY HOT and unstable if you don't have good airflow.  The performance is absolutely amazing for this little box; very pleased!

There is no question this is by far the best eGPU on the market imho and it works with mac!

I concur a Vega Nano eGPU is something a lot of people want. $800 MSRP or less would make it a much better deal and solution compared to Blackmagic RP580 for Mac users.

The entire lot in Korea and Taiwan must be hanged in front of the people for their grave crimes.   First it was the memory price fixing, now these cards are overpriced.  Now everything costs more.   These hustlers squeeze harder and harder against the American Companies.   But then again, we should bring all the old political leadership, even if they are retired and hang them in Times Square to create an example of them.  This is why you don't outsource everything, this is why you hold on to production capabilities.  Because of all these external factors, now I can't have my Vega 56 Nano for a fair price.  Charging double the price of MSRP? where did that come from.   These criminals all over the world and all their ilk will have a day where they fall.

@solocamper I understand your frustrations but please don’t start political and hate speech. We’re here to discuss external graphics technology.

What’s hate speech, they price fixed. It’s proven.  They have been slapped with fines.

@irev210 nice job! 
I have a question, which type of the original gaming box is, AMD or Nvidia? 
I was told that the AMD gaming box is different with Nvidia on board or something.
By the way, where did you buy the Vega nano?

thx

I would love to know this as well. I am hoping that the Vega Nano in the 1070 Gaming box on mac will work like a native supported AMD eGPU for mac OS Mojave.

Update:

Up and running with the Vega 56 Nano (powercolor) in my gigabyte gaming box with no issues. Didn't use capacitors, just a pcie power splitter.

Thank you.
wgat about the power supply did you upgrade it? Does it need upgrading. It has enough power I suppose but it uses up to 100 to power the mbp. Can you please confirm what power supply there is in the 1070 box? I have the rx580. Please update with any benchmarks

what is your setup?
thanks
