The AORUS Gaming Box is equipped with either a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 or GeForce RTX 3080 that connects to your laptop via a Thunderbolt 3 port. By default, both cards are absolute monsters, as we saw in our reviews of the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3080. As they will be liquid-cooled, they should allow for additional overclocking headroom. Moreover, being able to plug them into an ultrabook could change the game for the people who do work by day and game by night.
If this eGPU enclosure sounds interesting to you, you may need to wait until pricing is out. Pricing and availability have not been announced (perhaps due to the scarcity of 3080/3090s to begin with), but the enclosure is not expected to be cheap by any means. For the NVIDIA RTX 3090 Gaming Box, users could be looking at a price in the neighborhood of $2,500. The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Gaming Box would likely come in about $1,500, but we will have to see what happens. This is only speculation, so stay tuned to HotHardware and Gigabyte for future updates when we get availability and pricing.
