External GPU to Go
Sonnet’s eGPU Breakaway Pucks are extremely portable, high-performance, all-in-one external GPU docks for Intel-based Thunderbolt 3 Mac computers. Perfect for use with Macs with integrated or low-power discrete graphics processors, a Puck accelerates popular graphics-intensive pro applications on either your computer’s own or externally connected display.
Highly Portable. Powers Your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro
When you need GPU acceleration on the go, you can easily pack an eGPU Breakaway Puck with your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro in a backpack or computer bag. Connected to your Mac with the included Thunderbolt 3 cable, a Puck provides 60W of Power Delivery, which means it will power and charge your computer(1) while connected, even when not in use, allowing you to leave your computer’s power adapter behind. Wherever you use it, the Puck injects big GPU power into your work.
40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 Interface
With up to 2750 MB/s available PCIe bandwidth(1), your Mac’s Thunderbolt 3 ports are fast enough to support externally connected graphics processors. The Puck exploits the Thunderbolt 3 interface to deliver a powerful graphics processing boost to your notebook with integrated graphics onboard—and power and charge it—all through a single cable.
Also Ideal as a Graphic-Intensive Gaming Booster – Offers Great Value and Portability for Gaming
An eGPU Breakaway Puck is ideal for enabling graphic-intensive gaming at higher frame rates on your Mac with integrated graphics that otherwise would deliver a poor gaming experience. Accelerated graphics can either be displayed on one, two, three, or four(2) external monitors, or on your Mac’s own display.
PuckCuff: Zero Desktop Footprint (optional VESA mounting bracket)
Using the optional PuckCuff VESA Mounting Bracket Kit, you can free up desk space and mount the Puck to the back of a monitor with open VESA mounting holes (VESA 75 and VESA 100 hole patterns supported). The bracket is secured with included fasteners and specialized cable ties, and provides simple cable management. To further reduce cable clutter, a 0.5-meter DisplayPort cable is included to connect between the Puck and your display. The kit also includes parts that enable the bracket to be attached to virtually any multi-monitor stand’s upright or monitor arm.
