    They really should have moved up to the 1060 or better by now. Then again it looks absolutely sleek compared to other TB3 external GPU solutions.

    While I agree they should have opted for a 1060 or higher....I love that form factor.....looks more like an old school external HDD. The biggest drawback compared to other Thunderbolt graphics amps is you can’t upgrade change out the cards......but again the size tradeoff is more then an equivalent exchange. Unlike other graphic amps....this you could easily stow in any laptop bag.

    To be honest, I'm surprised nobody has announced a monitor with Thunderbolt 3 and a GPU built-in... or maybe even just one of these GPU enclosures that connects to a VESA mount now that I think of it. If it's mounted up behind the screen, who cares how big and unseemly it might be.
