Two Great Models

Two Great Models

Choose between the high performance Radeon Pro 580 or blazingly fast Radeon RX Vega 56!

With two great models to choose from, you can find a Blackmagic eGPU that’s perfect for your workflow! The Blackmagic eGPU features an AMD Radeon Pro 580 graphics processor that gives you a nearly 6x performance boost with DaVinci Resolve on a 13” MacBook Pro. The more powerful Blackmagic eGPU Pro model features a blazingly fast Radeon RX Vega 56 that accelerates operations such as noise reduction in DaVinci Resolve up to 22x on a 13” MacBook Pro! Plus, the Blackmagic eGPU Pro also features an additional DisplayPort that supports 5K monitors.

Screamingly Quiet Performance

Accelerate everything from video editing, VR and the latest 3D games!

Both models of the Blackmagic eGPU are incredibly flexible and can be used to improve both graphics performance and to accelerate computational tasks. They’re perfect for accelerating pro app creative workflows such as editing, color correction and visual effects with DaVinci Resolve. When it comes to image processing, the Blackmagic eGPU adds the performance to make games and VR look more realistic than ever. You get higher resolution images, higher frame rate gameplay, better lighting and more detailed textures for truly immersive experiences!

Elegant Aluminum Design

Complete docking solution for high performance and monitoring

The iconic design of the Blackmagic eGPU is elegant yet extremely functional. Extruded from a single piece of aluminum, the Blackmagic eGPU features a machine anodized finish and a unique thermal grill that’s designed for balanced airflow, convection cooling and efficient heat dissipation. This allows the variable speed fan to run more slowly, resulting in super quiet operation. The Blackmagic eGPU also features a soft glowing LED that casts a pool of light through the base to let you know it’s powered on and ready for action.
