Inside, the new external GPU solution from SAPPHIRE packs their own PULSE Radeon RX 6600 XT 8GB graphics card which offers plenty of performance for the desktop, and some sneaky 1080p 60FPS+ gaming on the side.

SAPPHIRE has updated the chassis design inside of the new GearBox 500 Thunderbolt 3 eGFX enclosure, with improved airflow that keeps the GPU inside of it cooler than before. SAPPHIRE says you can run some pretty powerful GPUs inside of the enclosure, from something as the Radeon RX 570 through to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, and from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

  • eGPU Solution with Award-Winning PULSE RX 6600 XT 8GB Graphics Card
  • Outstanding Improvements in both Productivity and Gaming Performance
  • New Chassis Design with Improved Airflow
  • Light, Slim and Portable
  • Diverse Choice of Outputs Including Thunderbolt ™ 3 with 60W Power Delivery Charging [PD}

SAPPHIRE combines the best of both worlds with its GearBox 500 Thunderbolt 3 eGFX enclosure, with its own PULSE RX 6600 XT graphics card.

Another nice touch is that the GearBox 500 eGFX Enclosure also packs up to 40Gbps of bandwidth through the Thunderbolt connector, as well as USB-PD (Power Delivery) charging so that you can charge your laptop at up to 60W at the same time.

There's also a GbE Ethernet port, and dual USB ports to boot.
