Sonnet's eGFX Breakaway™ Puck is a portable, high-performance, all-in-one external GPU for Thunderbolt™ 3 computers (such as Ultrabooks and All-in-One computers) that provides accelerated graphics and multi-display connectivity. With a Puck connected to a supported computer, you drastically accelerate popular graphics-intensive games and pro applications anywhere – at a friend's house for a gaming LAN party or at work, rendering the latest video production.
The eGFX Breakaway Puck conveniently packs with your notebook in a backpack or computer bag when you need GPU acceleration while on the go. An included portable power adapter and 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable powers and connects the Puck to your computer. The Puck provides 60W of Power Delivery, which means it will power and charge most notebooks while connected, even when not in use, allowing you to leave your computer’s power brick behind.
Measuring a compact 6 inches wide by 5.1 inches deep by 2 inches tall, the eGFX Breakaway Puck has a minimal footprint on the desktop, and is the right size to compliment your thin/light notebook. The Puck houses your choice of a value-oriented Radeon RX 560 or a ultra-powerful Radeon RX 570 graphics video card. An integrated fan helps keep everything cool. Three DisplayPorts and one HDMI port provide ample display support. A Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) port provides connectivity between the Puck and your computer.
With its three DisplayPort ports and one HDMI port, the eGFX Breakaway Puck leverages AMD’s Eyefinity™ multi-display technology to support up to four 4K displays with its single Radeon GPU! With the Puck connected as a multi-display graphics dock, there’s no need to compromise between the super-light notebook you want and the number of displays you need on your desktop.
eGFX Breakaway Puck supports AMD XConnect™ technology, enabling easy connection and disconnection of the Puck without having to power cycle your computer.
AMD Radeon™ FreeSync™ technology puts an end to lagging video performance and gaming with fluid and artifact-free performance at virtually any frame rate. FreeSync technology resolves the communication issues between processor and monitor, eliminating image tears and choppiness for effortlessly smooth gameplay.
