Akitio has been on the front lines of Thunderbolt 3 accessories, something they maintained this NAB 2017 with their new Akitio Node expansion chassis that allows laptops and mini-pcs to accomplish a great deal more than normal. We spoke with Akitio’s David Nguyen to find out more about the upcoming Akitio Node and a few other awesome items coming from Akitio.
The Thunderbolt™ 3 eGXF box is a low cost expansion chassis designed to house an external graphics card. Connected to the computer via Thunderbolt 3, the additional GPU power instantly upgrades a regular laptop or a mini PC and makes it possible to do things that would normally require a high-end workstation or gaming computer. For video editors and colorists, the dedicated GPU reduces the time it takes to render the footage, a computer that was not powerful enough for a VR headset is now potentially VR ready and for those that like to play games, these can now run at much higher frame rates than before.
