    Akitio Node - Thunderbolt3 eGPU

    AKiTiO Node

    The Thunderbolt™ 3 eGXF box is a low cost expansion chassis designed to house an external graphics card. Connected to the computer via Thunderbolt 3, the additional GPU power instantly upgrades a regular laptop or a mini PC and makes it possible to do things that would normally require a high-end workstation or gaming computer. For video editors and colorists, the dedicated GPU reduces the time it takes to render the footage, a computer that was not powerful enough for a VR headset is now potentially VR ready and for those that like to play games, these can now run at much higher frame rates than before.

    Features:

    • Thunderbolt™ 3 for lightning fast transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps
    • 1 PCIe (x16) slot supporting full-length, full-height, double-width cards
    • Spacious enclosure for use with standard and large sized graphics cards
    • Built-in 400W SFX power supply to provide extra power to GPU
    • PCIe x16 slot supplying up to 75W of power
    • 4 lane PCI Express 3.0 compliant interface
    • Removable back panel for double-width cards
    • Carry handle to easily transport the device

    4 Lane PCI Express 3.0 Compliant Interface


    AKiTiO Node

    Supports standard and large sized PCIe Gen3 x4 cards

    The PCIe (x16) slot accepts full-length, full-height, double-width cards with enough space available inside the enclosure for both standard and large sized graphics cards. The four PCIe Gen3 lanes and the Thunderbolt 3 interface are capable of transfer rates up to 40Gbps, providing enough bandwidth even for the most demanding PCIe cards.




    Extra power for graphics cards


    AKiTiO Node

    400W SFX PSU

    The built-in power supply provides enough power for the AKiTiO Node (~10W) as well as for graphics cards. If the standard 75W through the PCIe slot is insufficient, two extra pairs of 8-pin (6+2 pin) power connectors are available inside the AKiTiO Node that can be connected to the GPU, providing a total of about 390W.




    The power of external GPUs

    Thunderbolt™ 3

    Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. In combination with the AKiTiO Node, this makes it possible to instantly upgrade your regular laptop or Mini-PC and achieve a performance that usually requires high-end workstations or specialized gaming computers.

    Is it compatible with Mac OS X?
    A shopper on Jun 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It looks like MacOS High Sierra (to be released this fall 2017) will support external graphics processors to the Mac for the first time. I've found work-arounds for other MacOS, but it looks like the official support will come this fall with the new MacOS. This was just announced at WWDC 2017.
    Will this work for Macbook Pro 13 Retina Late-2013 using thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3 adapter?
    A shopper on Aug 2, 2017
    Does this unit provide 90watts of power for charging the laptop?
    Jeff C on Jul 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This unit would only provide power to the GPU. It would be unable to provide power to a laptop.
    Would this be compatible with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 enabled computers?
    A shopper on Jun 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. Thunderbolt 3 is not backwards compatible.
