It has been announced that Nvidia will be working with hardware partners at ASUS, HP, Powercolor, Razer and others to provide users with Nvidia Qualified external GPU solutions, which are designed for professionals to accelerate their content creation with Quadro or Titan series GPUs. 
 
This will allow professionals to easily add extra GPU horsepower to their system externally, enabling thin and light notebooks and even workstations to benefit from the additional power that can be provided by an external graphics solution. 

These external GPU solutions will become available starting in September, with Quadro solutions coming only through official Nvidia retail partners. 

  


Quadro graphics will be available through qualified eGPU partners for those who use high-end content-creation applications for animation, color grading and rendering as well as CAD and simulation apps. The qualification process ensures users of compatibility, reliability and performance of their Quadro eGPU solution.

You can now also use TITAN Xp with more PCs, including thin & light laptops, than ever before, and with external GPU chassis from a wide range of manufacturers including Asus, HP, Powercolor and Razer

This comes as part of Nvidia's renewed commitment to the prosumer market, with this announcement coming alongside a new Prosumer driver for the Titan Xp, which improves the performance of several pro apps like Maya and Adobe Premier Pro.

This is such a niche concept.... if I'm purchasing a Quadro or Titan XP to do my rendering work I REALLY don't think I'm going to use my lappy. You'd just run a full fledge desktop at that point... this is a very strange idea to me.Quote

Yup, I agree on this to be honest.Quote

The question is why? Jay (Jayz2cents) has tested external GPU's and concluded that they are absolute, pointless, rubbish. If you need hard core laptop, you will buy hardcore laptop. Upgrading whatever you have doesn't have sense. I understand that you need compute power when you are not on your main station. All youtubers when they go on events do their rendering on laptops. But they get insane laptops. And you can survive with few hours more rendering for a short time.

I just don't see the point. I don't see anyone for any reason, buy existing external GPUs, let alone workstation overpriced GPUs. Even for Rampage V Ed10, 6950X, 128GB RAM, Titan Xp SLI, 5x 480mm radiator water cooled build, in biggest CaseLabs case i see the point. It is enthusiast build, and i want one. But why would anyone need external Titan Xp?Quote

Probably so they don't need to buy an insane laptop to go with their normal rendering rig. Or the extreme caselabs watercooled behemoth.

I would imagine it depends whether they're using the GPU compute intensive applications.

Interestingly, more of our workstations are being replaced by laptops for ease of use and portability. More and more of our corporate applications are hosted so we don't need a lot of internal processing power, especially away from the office. Of course having this kind of external GPU power could really benefit in certain applications.

it does go back to the original point of Darkdayzzz that it's very, very niche. It's no use for me but "if you build it they will come."Quote
