The promising bull.box will ensure to take gaming power on PCs
The renowned company Apple constantly bewail the gaming performance of their iMac and MacBook but now are ready to make it a thing of the past, all credits goes to a new external GPU designed specifically for Apple firm.
That external aid will be the bull.box, which is presently crowd-funding on Kickstarter, using a mini Display Port or Thunderbolt 2 port connects to the Apple iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air .It will then provide that extra energy missing in many Apple platforms.
The two hardwares Alienware Graphics Amplifie and the bull.box are similar in way as the box is set up next to Mac and gains its power from a DC supply that only start-up when the bull.box is connected to the apple. Internally, the manufacturers provides an Nvidia GTX 960, GTX 970 or GTX 980 GPU that will take up the charge with a sliding scale of price that will further depend on the set of features chosen.
This box not only presently support OS X and but can also be connected to a Windows 10 PC or other version of it. The makers are already working on future plans and developments in the port area and we can expect USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 to be available by April 2016.
But all glitters do come with a heavy price tag..!! The boxes aren’t cheap at all. The model of bull.box 1.2 960 comes packed with Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 and it costs £399 (around $624, or AU$850) for a model that contains a Mini DisplayPort 1.2 and Thunderbolt 2 port. If you increase your pocket size up to £449 (around $703, or AU$957) you can have the same GPU with Mini DisplayPort 1.3, Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C connectivity. And beyond this range you can have the bull.box 1.3 980Ti that has inbuilt features like Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti plus will be included with the latter range of ports mentioned before for a MacBook-esque £999 (around $1,564, or AU$2,129).
Now coming to the performance frontier, it boast up 95 times the power of a MacBook Pro having entry level Intel Iris Pro chip that does not contain a devoted GPU and even can perform at a far far higher levels than the MacBook Pro that contains GT 750M chip.
Delivery would be seen in early December of bull.box 1.2 and of the bull.box 1.3 till January 2016, but it depends on the Kickstarter reaching £99,000 (around $155,053, or AU$211,030) aim that currently is at just £1,195 (around $1,871, or AU$2,547).
