Gigabyte Packages GTX 1070 and External Thunderbolt 3 Housing for $600

Want an external graphics card in a Thunderbolt 3 case to soup up your MacBook Pro? Gigabyte is offering a package deal on the external box with USB-C connectors housing a GTX 1070 for about $600.

The Aorus 1070 Gaming Box comes with an 8GB version of the GTX 1070 (1,531MHz that can be boosted to 1,721MHz), and HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual DVI connections on the graphics card, as well as Thunderbolt 3. It also has four USB 3.0 ports for connecting extra peripherals and a 450-watt power supply, with a mesh screen on the side to aid in cooling of the high-performance card. The unit weighs a hefty 2KG, which is attributed mostly to the power supply.

The Gaming Box was shown off at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan. Gigabyte expects to start selling the combo in the near future under the SKU GV-N1070IXEB-8GD.
