AMD board partner PowerColor has announced the Devil Box external graphics card enclosure, based on AMD's XConnect technology. The Devil Box is a Thunderbolt 3 external graphics solution compatible with "qualified" AMD and Nvidia graphics cards. Owners of laptops and ultra-small-form-factor machines like Intel's Skull Canyon NUC can connect full-fat desktop graphics cards to their systems on the fly for enhanced performance in games and GPU-accelerated computation.
The enclosure measures 15.75" x 6.8" x 9.5" (40 cm x 17 cm x 24cm) and can accept video cards as big as 12.2" x 5.5" x 1.97" (31 cm x 14 cm x 50 cm). The Devil Box includes a 500W power supply. The graphics card inside it can pull as much as 375W, which is plenty for the latest crop of GPUs based on fabrication technologies measured in the teens of nanometers. The rest of the power supply's capacity goes to four USB 3.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet interface, and up to 60W for charging laptops charging over an extra USB 3.1 Type-C connector. PowerColor says the Devil Box should become available at any moment $379 at Newegg.
