Show us your Battlestations - 2017 Edition

Question

Welcome to the Battlestations 2017 thread!
 
If you want to show your fellow Neowinians what your workstation/battlestation looks like, this is the place to do it.
 
When posting, please note the following:

If you plan to img-embed your picture, please try to keep it under 100k. Actually, it's best if you just link to it externally.

If you are going to quote, there isn't a need to quote an img-embeded picture - Just don't do it. Please just reference the post by page number/page link/etc.

The moderators of this forum reserve the right to edit or remove your posts as necessary in order that they will comply with the Community Rules.

 
The Battlestations 2017 thread is not to be used as a means to post images of a pornographic or otherwise provocative nature, so please be mindful of the images that may appear on your battlestation. Please help to keep the thread relevant and safe to browse for everyone.
 
Last year's Battlestations thread is here.

Dont have money to buy it even with the £100 Savings xD

OMFG a NUC with a egpu!? i was wishing for a surface pro with an egpu but, NUC should be more afordable right?

 

How Much is that NUC?

I have this one: NUC7i5BNK

 

It is the only model that is THIN and has Thunderbolt 3. I setup a thicker i7 version for a client coupled with a Quadro P2000 eGPU. My setup was the test bed for that. It works beautifully - like it's fully supported, no issues at all. 

 

I was SO wishing for a Surface Pro with Thunderbolt 3 but alas the latest model only has USB3.0. I already have a SP4, but if they come out with one with TB3 I will ditch everything and that will be my one and only PC, mobile and at home.

 

If anyone is interested in a cheap eGPU solution, look at the Akitio Node

By itself, no. But if you add a eGPU, you'd get better performance.

If you mean with an eGPU, absolutely.

 

But wait! Intel is coming out with some amazing stuff. They are working on new models that have discrete graphics built-in codenamed Hades Canyon.

I'm waiting for Hades, too. See what monster they have created. :p
