The TUL brand of Taiwan displays a large external case with broad support and a price tag that is not easy to digest
We continue to follow with curiosity the developments in the world The external Thunderbolt 3 enclosures, which can provide a leap in graphic processing for more and more computer products that include the advanced technology from Intel - When the whole trend is likely to leap forward tremendously in the coming year with the standard in question becoming free to use without royalty payments.
Today, the one announcing the strengthening of its market presence is the Taiwanese company TUL, through its well-known PowerColor brand - and as part of a new package called Gaming Station, and said To inherit the massive Devil Box package Which was presented at the end of last year.
The Gaming Station will be a "classic" external stand - large, to support a large variety of graphics cards that the consumer will be asked to purchase and install independently, with additional information connections and also quite expensive.
A rectangular black metal marquee with a length of 34 centimeters and a thickness of 24 centimeters, contains a power supply of 550W and a space of double thickness and a length of up to 31 centimeters, with support for the R9 200, R9 300, RX 400 and RX AMD's 500 on one hand, and support for GeForce and Quadro models NVIDIA The BonfireMaxwell V.2 andPascal from the other side.
The stand includes five 3.0 total USB connections (three rear and two front) and a Gigabit Ethernet connection plus a graphics card connector inside, although based on a controller Thunderbolt 3 single (and single connection) means that using all these peripheral capabilities will rob the effective bandwidth available for the graphics processing card, which will affect the performance potential - therefore it will be advisable to use the connection hub only when no significant system-based graphics processing is performed.
The docking station will be available for purchase starting in the first quarter of next year, at a recommended cost of $ 330, without such a video card - cheaper than the Devil Box and Core packages of Razer, But it is still expensive for all those looking for a competitive solution for a built-in dedicated graphics card in the system, not only in performance but also in cost.
