Lenovo Legion BoostStation Thunderbolt 3 eGPU Enclosure
This Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 eGPU enclosure was a total surprise at CES 2020. At first glance it looks almost identical to the Razer Core X. I've seen an earlier prototype that was simply badge engineering. This announced version has different front fascia, rear handle, and internal component arrangement.
Dimensions of 6.77 x 14.37 x 8.35 in (172 x 365 x 212 mm) is slightly smaller than the Razer Core X. It weighs more at 18.74 lbs (8.5 kg) due to hard drive caddy and carrier. The power supply is rated at 500W with 100W Power Delivery. Besides SATA connection for the drive, expansion ports are 2x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0, and 1x RJ45 Ethernet. Retail availability is set for May 2020 at $249.99. Here are some photos I took at Lenovo exhibit space during CES 2020.
It looks like they’ve chosen to base it on the Razer enclosures to save on manufacturing costs I’d guess, or maybe the manufacturer is white labelling the chassis?
its a shame no ones trying to reduce the size of these enclosures, my Louqe ghost arrived today and it’s a tiny bit smaller than my mantiz and it’s a full pc.
Is it a dual-controller configuration? Looks nice and is competitively priced.
@mac_editor I could not tell when I was at Lenovo (due to installed components blocking full view of mainboard). I asked a rep there but they don't have an answer. It would be a great value if this eGPU enclosure has dual-TB3 controller.
Is there anything new about this enclosure? Any info about the amount of TB3 controllers?
