The box is very similar to that of the Razer Core, and allows users to install a compatible discrete GPU, in order to use it with a Thunderbolt 3 equipped notebook. With this ability, users can have full desktop-level graphics performance on the go, making it an optimal solution for LAN events, and for gaming while traveling.  The enclosure also provides additional connectivity such as a variety of USB connections, Ethernet, and SATA for additional storage.

    That is actually somewhat exciting. PowerColor has been known to make the cheapest AMD graphics cards, so I hope they provide a worthy competitor to the Razer Core for a lower price.
