||Does the Breakaway Box support the AMD Radeon Vega 64, FE, WX8200 or WX9100, Radeon VII, or Radeon 5700 or 5700 XT?||Jan-12-20|
||The GPU-350W-TB3 and GPU-350W-TB3Z both have 350W power supplies, but only GPU-350W-TB3Z supports some higher end cards. Why?||Oct-21-19|
|Both SKUs have 350W power supplies, but they allocate the power differently:|
The GPU-350W-TB3Z box has one 8-pin plus one 6-pin power connector. 300W is available to the GPU card and 15W Power Distribution to a laptop.
The GPU-350W-TB3 box is available only as the Developer Edition and has one 8-pin power connector, which is adequate to support the included Radeon RX 580 card. 225W is available to the GPU card and 60W Power Distribution to a laptop.
The numbers don't add to exactly 350W because power is allocated in discrete steps and some power margin is required for transients.
Note that some Thunderbolt 3 PC laptops with dedicated power connectors do not accept power distribution. To check whether your Thunderbolt 3 PC laptop accepts power distribution, check here. Upstream power continues to be provided even when the computer is sleeping.
Every Thunderbolt 3 Macbook Pro will accept Power Distribution, up to 60W for the 13", and up to 85W for the 15"

||My 4K display is connecting only at 30Hz. Why I can't set it to 60Hz?||Jun-21-21|
|Your display may not support 60Hz. Your display might require a firmware update to support 60Hz operation. Contact the maker of your display for details.|
Many early 4K displays use Multi-Stream Transport (MST) to achieve 4k @ 60Hz. Follow these steps to use the display's built-in controls to enable this feature:
Sharp PN-K321: Choose Menu > Setup > DisplayPort STREAM > MST > SET
ASUS PQ321Q: Choose OSD menu > Setup > DisplayPort Stream
Dell UP2414Q and UP3214Q: Choose Menu > Display Setting > DisplayPort 1.2 > Enable
Panasonic TC-L65WT600: Choose Menu > Display Port Settings > Stream Setting > Auto
Other DisplayPort displays: check with the display manufacturer for compatibility information.
Make sure the HDMI cable you are using is a Premium High-Speed HDMI Cable certified by HDMI.org.
If you are trying to connect at 4k@60Hz via HDMI 2.0, you may have to set the color depth to 8-bit at 4:4:4, 10-bit at 4:2:2, or 12-bit at 4:2:0, or you may exceed the HDMI 2.0 bandwidth. A few 4K TVs (2017 Element Fire TV and 2017 LeEco Super 4, for example) don't support 4K@60Hz@4:4:4 at all.
For connecting to a 4K TV, you may need make a custom color resolution. Set resolution to 3840x2160 at 60Hz and set Timing standard to CVT-RB (reduced blanking). Some TVs require you to turn on "UHD Color" or "Advanced" or "Enhanced" setting manually in the picture settings for the HDMI port.
