The idea behind Gigabyte's "Gaming Box" add-ons is easy to understand, using the bandwidth offered by Thunderbolt 3.0 to add desktop-grade dedicated graphics to thin and light notebooks, creating powerful gaming out of portability focused PC.   

With the leaked RTX 2070 Aorus Gaming Box, Gigabyte will take their gaming box concept to the next level, offering powerful ray tracing performance thanks to Nvidia's latest graphics architecture. 

Like previous "Gaming Box" designs, The RTX 2070 Aorus variant will ship with s custom cooler, one which is ill-suited to traditional desktop use, using a large heatsink and a larger fan to keep the graphics card cool and quiet under load. This "Gaming Box" requires external power, offering an HDMI 2.0 display output, three DisplayPort Connections and a USB Type-C (VirtualLink) connection. The enclosure also provides three USB ports for system connectivity and interfaces with connected systems over Thunderbolt 3.0.

Previous Gigabyte Gaming Box external GPUs offered a 450W power supply making it probable that this system will be able to charge most Ultrabooks while they are connected to the GPU enclosure.

Have you heard anything about price? I think they are to expensive, current boxes that is. I understand the GPU being expensive but the cases itself are pretty absurd. Hope they fix that.

As much as I want to get external box and something like a XPS 13 I'm probably going to wait for Thunderbolt 4, which is most likely going to be during the next PCIe standard whenever those get releasedQuote

I reckon these will retail around the £700- £750 range.
These are always going to be expensive. this sort of upgrade seems to have a very large margin. You have a few more people to pay before you can add that on also. Not including the card itself you have the OEM('s) that make the PSU and the case, the additional cables and Intel before you can add your margin on them.Quote
