Unfortunately Intel does not allow retail distribution of Thunderbolt boards. Full enclosure is the only way they come.

Pascal cards are not getting the most performance out of these beta web drivers in macOS.

Hi. What GPU you can recommend for FCPX, DaVinci and 3D Modeling and Rendering with Luxology Modo or Blender? I'm interested in updating my nMP 2013 with 2xD300.
Thanks.

Hi CC88,

I posted in the forum just now, recommending AMD cards for your use.

Any idea when this or the 500 watt version will be made publicly available to purchase? I can only see sites offering pre-orders...but no official release date

Unfortunately we don't have the official word on the 500W version availability.

Will this enclosure work with a 2016 15″ Macbook Pro to the built in display?
I want to get a new Macbook Laptop, get better Adobe Premiere rendering speeds at home & be able to play games at decent fps in MacOS & Windows via Bootcamp.
Will the Breakaway Box paired with a RX 580 do the job?

”We have made significant progress in macOS eGPU implementation. It’s still a system hack process until Apple officially gives its blessing. With recent announcement of the completely redesigned Mac Pro in the pipeline, we hope this happens sooner rather than later.”

And it has happened! Smile

It will work with the late 2013 Mac Pro. I'm not sure about Thunderbolt Display though.
