Thank you all for the giveaway entries. @Mat_hd is the winner. We hope the VisionTek Mini eGFX RX 570 can further help him with modifying Radeon drivers for Boot Camp support.

 

Posted by: Mat HD

Hello I'm Mat from www.bootcampdrivers.com.
I modify, build and test AMD graphics drivers suitable for Macs running BootCamp (Windows 10), ensuring they are kept up-to-date alongside PC versions of the driver. I also make it easier for eGPU users to get their eGPUs up and running alongside their internal GPUs by baking support for both in one driver package.

I currently only have the ability to test the drivers on my m295X inside my iMac 5k from 2014.
With the VisionTek RX570 I would be able to test the eGPU with the drivers which will help to further improve stability and compatibility with newer driver releases.

Many thanks for accepting my entry and thank you for this excellent resourceful website!

Anyone has any idea how/where to order this to Europe? Haven't found any solution so far.
Or someone getting from US to EU with some empty luggage space by any chance..? 😀

been looking this as well.  someone who live in the US, it might be good for you to buy and sell it on ebay with the acceptance of sending it internationally.  so, we can get the unit.  visiontek really doesn't supply this unit from the US yet and have doubt that they will sell it in Europe or united kingdom

The AC power adapter is heavy at 2.5 lbs.

So, with the gpu, case and power brick, the total weight would be roughly similar to aourus gaming box?

What is the noise level? I am looking to buy my first eGPU. I will use it for photo editing, not heavy-duty gaming. I'll put it under my desk but I would rather not listen to a noisy fan.

@Mat_hd has recently posted a video update (eGPU mention at 3:07 mark) that he's back. He will be doing some eGPU testing with the VisionTek mini eGFX RX 570. Hopefully this will improve the modified Radeon drivers in Boot Camp. Please donate to his website if you have found the drivers useful for your setup.

Just curious if this box is backward compatible for my MacBook Pro 15in early 2013 ? Thanks
