Lenovo Unveils First Legion e-GPU for GeForce 20 Series and Radeon RXs

Lenovo brought its very first eGPU case (for external graphics card). The BoostStation is integrated into the Legion range to accommodate NVIDIA GeForce 20 series and AMD Radeon RX cards. This box is Thunderbolt 3 compatible and can power a connected PC by providing power up to 100 Watts.

Lenovo unveiled its Legion BoostStation eGPU for the CES 2020. This is Lenovo’s first external GPU, designed in aluminum with a pinched window. It weighs about 9 kilograms and was designed to work in plug & play on Windows 10 thanks to the Thunderbolt 3 interface. As a reminder, the eGPU – for external GPU – simply connects with a Thunderbolt 3 cable to your laptop, to connect a desktop graphics card to play the latest games on its ultrabook which often has only a single GPU built into the CPU.

The Legion BoostStation accommodates 60 x 150 x 300 to 320mm cards (depending on the location of the power pin), there is also a slot for a 1 SSD or 1 SATA hard drive or 2 PCIe SSDs. The eGPU also has 1 Thunderbolt 3 compatible port, 2 USB 3.1 (Gen 1) ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 HDMI output and 1 RJ 45 port. Its ATX power supply supports power up to 500 W and also manages a power supply for laptops up to 100 W.
