Thunder3 Quad Mini

The Thunder3 Quad Mini may not be the perfect solution for your needs, considering that you’ll need to enable RAID 0 and have access to four SSDs to get the most out of the device, but it’s great to finally have such an option available to Mac users. Read More...

Node

Overall, the AKiTiO Node is a good product, especially considering the low price point. For users looking to experiment with external GPUs on their system, $300 is a much more palatable price point than $500 for something like the Razer Core especially for users looking to add a GPU for non-gaming purposes.

It’s pretty much a no-brainer: If the Node works with your Thunderbolt 3-equipped laptop, go for it. Read More...

AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad

Ricapitolando brevemente i punti essenziali di questa recensione, il Thunder2 Quad di AKiTiO è un case con una eccellente qualità strutturale ed un'estetica pulita, resa meno banale dalla presenza di una maniglia.

AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro

The Thunder3 Duo Pro enclosures gave our storage Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and though the speeds are nowhere near what Thunderbolt 3 is capable of given the limitation of the hard drives, it’s still substantially faster than USB 3 or Ethernet. The added flexibility of daisy chaining drives together with almost no speed degradation is useful as well. They look good, and do exactly what we need them to. Looks like we'll be keeping these around for a while. Read More...

I was quite surprised by how easy it was to add an external GPU with this Akitio Node. On both the Yoga 720 as well as my own Macbook Pro (running Windows) it was really a plug and play experience. Games and other applications that can benefit from a faster graphics processor will immediately start working with it. Read More...

Node

The best feature? Its price. I know $300 is still a lot of money but compared to other options on the market, the AKiTiO Node is the most affordable all-in-one Thunderbolt 3 eGPU box. Another nice thing is AKiTiO’s support and involvement with the eGPU community. Many forum members have shared their stories and good experiences with AKiTiO’s customer service. Read More...
