    Technical Notes

    While the eGFX Breakaway box features a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface, some computers equipped with Thunderbolt 3 use an x2 PCIe lane implementation of Thunderbolt 3 technology that limits PCIe performance to 20Gbps. Find more computer information here. Full performance also requires the use of the included Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable, or other Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cables; look for the Thunderbolt icon AND the number 3 on the connector housings to identify these cables.
    macOS High Sierra has only beta support for connection of GPU cards over Thunderbolt and GPU card drivers are not yet officially Thunderbolt compatible for macOS. For more information, see Sonnet Support Library.
    Choose eGFX Breakaway Box model that supports the power requirement of the chosen card.
