Though Apple answered the demands of many power-demanding users with the new MacBook Pro, there's still a few of you out there who need a little more juice. Blackmagic has stepped in with their own eGPU, a external graphics processor that uses a Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB of GDDR5 RAM to power everything from games to video editing and virtual reality. The device has a built-in USB hub, two high-speed Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI 2.0 for 4K monitor support, and 85W of power to charge a MacBook Pro 13" or 15".
