Gigabyte, through its Aorus brand, has announced the launch of the GTX 1070 Gaming Box, an external GPU box that connects to any computer via Thunderbolt 3 connection and adds all the power of the GeForce GTX 1070 to the computer that we connect, allowing laptops or mini PCs can be used to play high games without the slightest problem.
