FFS! If you're going to shell out all this dosh for a thumping great external graphics dock (and card) with so-so performance, why not get a real PC? Its not like you can slip one of these things in your notebook backpack!

If they were free it wouldn't matter; you still can't buy a decent video card in this market. So unless manufactures are going to bundle in the cards these are going nowhere. No matter if people want them or not.

The e-GPU is a great development made possible by TB3. And that Gigabyte e-GPU can fit easily in a backpack. The idea that you need to drag your e-GPU everywhere to be worthwhile is nonsensical requirement. The fact that I can get a cheap 2-in-1 with TB3 like the 2.9lb Lenovo Yoga 720 13, that I got for $720, and be able to go about the day at work and then bring it home at night and be able to game on it is very valueable. And if I travel, I can bring the e-gpu with me and leave it the hotel room and then use it after work. I am playing stuff like Destiny 2, Overwatch, and Project Cars 2.
