Video EditorMany pro video and 3D rendering applications rely on workstation graphics (GPU) cards to do the heavy lifting. Unfortunately, most of today’s Mac® computers are equipped only with integrated graphics or low-power discrete GPUs that may cause performance bottlenecks when performing these tasks. Happily, for current MacBook Pro and iMac models there’s a simple path to greater performance—external GPUs (eGPUs). Through extensive engineering collaboration, a Radeon Pro WX 9100 or 8200 installed in the Breakaway Box 650 eGPU chassis connects to the computer via a single cable, and works seamlessly with macOS®, with no need for manual driver installations or additional tweaking—it is a true plug-and-play professional graphics solution.



An eGFX Breakaway Box 650 + AMD Radeon Pro WX Graphic Card Performance Bundle delivers a significant graphics processing boost to popular video editing, visual effects, and modeling applications, cutting rendering times and enhancing VFX and color correction workflows.

Multi-GPU Support

Supported applications’ task times can be cut significantly with one eGPU connected, and slashed when two, three, or four eGPUs are employed. Connecting one or more eGPUs can multiply your computer’s graphics processing power, enabling it to handle 4K, 5K, 6K, and 8K workflows more efficiently. Plus, the onboard (discrete) GPU also contributes to the aggregate performance.
