The AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box has been one of the most interesting innovations that we have seen in the sector of external graphics solutions, market that as we know has never finished taking off due to the poor value for money offered by most products announced.
In this specific case, we find an alternative that certainly marks a real turning point, since the AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box manages to offer a much more balanced price-quality value than other similar solutions like the Razer Core.
The latter is priced at $ 499 but does not include a graphics card, only the case, the power system and the connectors. By contrast, the AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box includes all that and also comes as its own name indicates with a powerful GTX 1070 from NVIDIA. Its price is $ 599.
But this is not all, the solution offered by GIGABYTE through its brand AORUS mounts a mini ITX version of the graphics card, which means that it is small in size and therefore takes up less space and is more comfortable to carry.
This also has a disadvantage and is that if we want to update that GTX 1070 we should use a mini ITX solution, but not a major problem as it is a rather popular format and does not imply a price increase compared to the standard versions.
To offer a good level of performance this card uses the Thunderbolt 3 connector that offers a bandwidth of 40 Gbps, although we must be clear that it will not reach the level we would have with a GTX 1070 via PCI-E 3.0 x16.
In any case, AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box can be a good option for those who want to take advantage of the benefits of an ultraportable and use that equipment also for games.
