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
