Have a laptop with Thunderbolt 3 and a mobile GPU that just doesn't cut it anymore?  Gigabyte now offers an incredibly easy way to upgrade your laptop, with no screwdriver required!  The Aorus GTX 1070 Gaming Box contains an external desktop class GTX 1070 and separate PSU, giving you a dock with some serious gaming prowess.  The Tech Report's benchmarks compare this external GPU against the GTX 1060 installed in their Alienware gaming laptop and Alienware's own external GPU enclosure, on both the internal display and an external monitor.  The results are somewhat mixed and worth reading through fully, however if you are on an integrated GPU then this solution is an incredible upgrade.

Actually the particular card shown is from the Judge Gift Program, making it more like $350.

The biggest online shop in Europe sells it for 230€ = ~250$. ^^

Would be a nice Bonus if the The Aorus GTX 1070 Gaming Box would include the card. ^^
