Thin and light laptops are great! Carrying them around is super easy, they have a super-long battery life, and are more than powerful enough for most tasks. But when it comes to serious gaming a thin and light laptop just won’t cut it. Most people have a nice Ultrabook and then when they get home they have a full-blown gaming PC. Well AORUS wants you to game on your Ultrabook and they have just the device to do so, their GTX 1080 Gaming Box. It is an external box that houses a desktop-class GeForce GTX 1080 and it connects to your PC with a single cable via Thunderbolt 3 (Type-C). So when you need to be on the go you have your thin and light laptop, but when you get home you just plug in 1 cable and you have the power of a desktop-class graphics card. Let’s jump in and see what this gaming box is all about.
Special thanks to AORUS for providing us with the GTX 1080 Gaming Box to review.

The AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box comes in a box that is not much larger than the actual unit itself. On the front there is a picture of the unit and some of the major features are listed like RGB fusion and Thunderbolt.
Flipping over to the back many of the features are detailed. If you were at the store I think that you would have more than enough information on the Gaming Box to make an educated purchase.
Getting everything out of the box you have the GTX 1080 Gaming Box, carrying case, Thunderbolt 3 cable (Type-C), power cable, installation guide, and driver / software CD.
