    News CES21: Asus Sneak-Peaks uSFF 3080 Custom eGPU [DigitalTrends]

    @kotproger Who says the cable won't be pulled from the internal header, and replaced with something more universal? :) A man can dream, can't he?

    News CES21: Asus Sneak-Peaks uSFF 3080 Custom eGPU [DigitalTrends]

    I don't mind mobile vs desktop name/branding, so long as it's always stated - "Mobile" 3080 suffices. It'd be great if they could dump the Max-P / Max-Q / TI / Super garbage branding. @Gilles3000 but imaging if something comes along and resolves the pinout, or an adapter is made :)

    LTT Video: Not too much more information, but certainly some good peeking.

    GPU Confirmed? Navi MXM Module in new Sonnet Puck Navi [Tom's Hardware]

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/sonnet-egpu-breakaway-puck-navi I was a big fan and follower of the Sonnet Breakaway Puck, with the RX560 and RX570 models. Looks like the refresh has something quite a bit beefier - I don't think internals are revealed yet, but it's only a matter of time.

    Log Passively cooled X300M-STX server build with ECC RAM, iGPU, TPUs, 10GbE, IPMI, 10TB SSD

    I snagged a 4700G on Ebay pretty cheaply, but also there's a couple HP computers floating around with the 4700G for pretty cheap, like $450 at times. One could snag for $450, swap in a cheap Ryzen 3200G, and resell for almost the same price.

    CPU New form-factor incoming: Half-ITX, care of ECS [Toms Hardware}

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/ecs-half-mini-itx-motherboard Looks fun, but likely to be strictly Pentium- / Celeron- / Atom-class boards. But I can dream of a world where desktop-class stuff is stuffed onto this.

    Gotta maintain that 115x heatsink compatibility!

    CPU Shuttle form factor dual X79 from China - Have not seen this one posted here before!

    Found this guy on Ebay - I hadn't seen it shared here before, so I thought I might. I have no affiliation or relationship with this seller, just the first one I saw. Maybe there's an X99 version in the works...

    GPU ASRock Rack Unveils M.2 Slot Graphics Card

    Looks very interesting for 2 things: 1. Laptop troubleshooting, systems with dead internal GPUs. 2. Internal display for cases, in ultra-high end systems. I've used USB for this in the past, though.

    Prebuilt Minisforum H31G (Socketed 1151 8th/9th Intel + 1050Ti) - $399

    @LukeD It looks like the shared CPU/GPU heatsink means you'll just have to take the PWM signal from the warmer device, likely the CPU.

    Prebuilt Minisforum H31G (Socketed 1151 8th/9th Intel + 1050Ti) - $399

    I checked this out myself, a while back - Mostly poured over YT and other sites for images of the 1050TI. It's proprietary for sure, and uses a pair of flax-flex cables to pipe PCIe data and power. Not going to be user-replaceable, and while a higher-end graphics unit might come around, getting...
