Back in September 2017, Gigabyte had unveiled a rather unique product in the form of an external graphics solution called the Aorus GTX 1080 Gaming Box. Well, this time round, the company had recently debuted another graphics enclosure called the RX 580 Gaming Box, which as its name implies, features an enclosed Radeon RX 580 graphics card.
When it comes to design, Gigabyte’s RX 580 Gaming Box looks pretty much identical to the Aorus GTX 1080 Gaming Box. The only distinguishable difference between them – in terms of looks – is that the RX 580 isn’t endowed with the “Aorus” branding. Other than that, the RX 580 Gaming Box looks… well, like a dull black box with LED-lighting (controllable via Gigabyte RGB Fusion software).
Specifications-wise, the RX 580 graphics card inside this external graphics solution features clock speeds of 1257MHz (base) and 1340MHz (boost). Of course, the consumers are able to push the clock speeds even higher using “OC Mode” which results in the boost clock speed rising to 1355MHz.
Being an external graphics enclosure means that the RX 580 Gaming Box utilises the Thunderbolt 3 port. What makes this external graphics solution even more interesting is that Gigabyte has fitted it with a Quick Charge 3-compliant USB3.1 port, which consumers can use to charge their devices with. Those aside, the pricing and release date of the RX 580 Gaming Box weren’t announced by Gigabyte at the time of writing.
