Blackmagic eGPU Pro with Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics is for sale in the USA

After a few weeks of “delay”, Apple finally made available in its online store the new version of Blackmagic eGPU (Pro), announced next to the new MacBook Air and Mac mini last October. The new model equipped with a graphics card Radeon RX Vega 56, which has 8GB of HBM2 memory.

What changed from this model to the version introduced in July this year was the graphics processing (Blackmagic eGPU has a Radeon Pro 580 graphics card) and the addition of the DisplayPort 1.4 port.

Both eGPUs have an aluminum design, four USB-A 3.1 inputs, one HDMI 2.0 port and two Thunderbolt 3 inputs capable of delivering 85W of power (to recharge a 15 ″ MacBook Pro, for example).

Apple noted that Blackmagic eGPU Pro enables “intense workflows for even smoother graphics and gaming applications”, as well as enabling even more enhanced virtual reality experiences and supporting multiple accessories for better workstation setup. We are definitely talking about something very focused on professionals.

Even with the extra power over the “old” eGPU model, the machine's thermal cooling system “balances airflow and dissipates heat more efficiently,” according to Blackmagic's CEO. In addition, such cooling also enables quiet work, which is vital in video or audio production environments.

As we said, the new model arrived a little later than expected; Apple announced in October that eGPU would be available by the end of November, but later announced that it would be released this month, as reported by 9to5Mac.

Like the previous model, you cannot upgrade any hardware components from Blackmagic eGPU Pro. Orders placed today ($ 1,200) will be available for delivery only next month, January 16-24.
