What enclosure for Vega 56 Nitro+?
I just got this thing, and now I realize it's a BEAST, and I can't find anyone who has it in an eGPU box.
Sonnet says it will fit their 550, but I saw someone say it was too small. Any ideas? The XG Station Pro says it fits a 31cm card (the Nitro is 31 cm), but is it too small width-wise?
I got it on a huge Black Friday sale for $440, and it's now back up to $630, hate to lose the deal if I can get this card to work somehow...
There are a few enclosures that fit. The AKiTiO Node Pro and Razer Core X would be my first recommendation due to ease of installation (open headroom). The Mantiz Venus is another good choice and great value but you'll have a harder time install the card due to side access. Take a look at our eGPU buyer's guide for full specs.
What about an Akitio Node with a PSU upgrade to 600W ?
I just have a good deal for the Vega 64 ... 470 euros today in France. I bought it, I will se how I use it
I am thinking for some time to buy a new enclosure BTW ... to use more than one eGPU atbthe same time.
Well I posted an other relative question on an other topic, when we see the Tom Hardware test of the card, they get something like 280W consumption for Vega 64, then I don’t understand ...
For the enclosure, I already use a an Asus with 3 fans like the one I am buying, it would be ok I think, and I already use the enclosure open for this card.
@igerard regarding power consumption keep in mind those values are average values. You have to look out for the maximum peaks (which can as short as 50ms). For example see here
Very brief peaks can hit 380W.
Hi, thank for the reply, I tested and yes it does work and finish to stop when the PSU does not want to continue.
For the record my card is this one and the Peak is 330W
