IRVINE, Calif. — Nov. 8, 2017 — Sonnet Technologies today announced that its eGFX Breakaway™ Box with 550-watt power supply, the latest in the company's all-new series of Thunderbolt™ 3 to PCI Express® (PCIe®) eGPU expansion chassis for professional graphics and gaming applications, is now shipping.

The eGFX Breakaway Box 550 provides a single slot for connecting any size Thunderbolt-compatible GPU card, and features enough room for even high-performance water cooler cards — making it ideal for gamers and professionals who need to run bandwidth-intensive graphics applications on their eGFX-compatible notebook, all-in-one, or other small-form-factor computers. The unit is equipped with a single 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 port that enables data transfers up to 2,750 MB/s, and supports Thunderbolt-compatible cards with popular GPU chipsets — such as AMD Radeon® and Radeon Pro; NVIDIA® GeForce®, TITAN XP, and Quadro® cards. In addition, the Breakaway Box 550 includes two eight-pin auxiliary power connectors and provides 87 watts of upstream power (power delivery), useful for powering and charging a connected notebook computer.

The eGFX Breakaway Box 550 (part number GPU-550W-TB3) is now available from Sonnet Technologies and its dealers at an MSRP of $349. More information on the product is available at www.sonnettech.com/product/egfx-breakaway-box.html.
