Probably the best value eGPU, considering all the features and price. Looks massive though.

The PR blurb on some other sites say this only works with HP hardware, some kind of software package is used to manage external GPUs.

If someone gets one it will be interesting to see if that holds true or HP's software works with non-HP systems.

It baffles me how these companies succeed in making these devices so ugly.

Not to mention that keeping all else equal (box size, i.e. thermals), just tilting it 45° sideways means +42% footprint for no other purpose than, err, aesthetics. So to say.
Neither it can be stacked with, say, an external hard drive.
My inner engineer is hurting.

Design aside, what I've noticed with these recently announced eGPU enclosures is that they seem to share one board. I would guess TUL is the manufacturer. This new board seems to have the IO daughter board integrated rather than plugged in vertically (current design of PowerColor Devil Box and Mantiz Venus).

Bigger size does not necessarily mean bigger capabilities... or better performance 🙂

Updated opening page with more pics and specs. If this enclosure has firmware allowing eGPU use on uncertified hosts then it sets a new benchmark for features at the less-than US$300 pricepoint.

Looks like I found my new egpu enclosure! However, I would probably chop off the legs and put it on its side if I bought it. Something about standing a square up on a corner just bothers me.
