Thank you for sharing! This is a very good sign that Intel has lessened restrictions on Thunderbolt external graphics cards.

News update!

I was at the Cebit exhibition in Germany today and talked to a guy from the zotac booth.

 

they are preparing the launch of the egpu dock this summer, worldwide!

The case will be designed more for itx based cards like gtx 1080 mini but incl. psu 

they are aiming a price tag for around 300 Eur 

They would like to implement mac os compatibility. But thats still in development, which is one of the reasons why the gpu dock still hasn't arrived, yet

they are also in talks with apple resellers for additional distribution.

But he told me, nothing is final, yet and some things still can change until summer

By the way, that's me testing vr for the first time at the zotac booth. Htc vive with the pc back pack from zotac, playing space pirates trainer. It was awesome

Zotac officially launch its eGPU enclosure today. There are two versions. One is a full enclosure with an internal SFX PSU, named Zotac AMP Box [ZT-TB3BOX]. A more compact version with an external power brick is also available.

Both look good. It's a real shame the Mini only has front USB ports though, meaning the Mini can't be used as a neat and compact docking station on a desk.

"Up to 250W (2 x 8-pin PCI-E power cable)".

Ideally two 8-pins should support 375W card (75W + 150W +150W) according to high power card electromechanical specification.

Zotac posted an unboxing video of this AMP BOX. It looks like a small footprint relatively to SFX enclosures.
