On Friday, Magma began shipping its ExpressBox1 product, an external PCI breakout box for laptops including the MacBook Pro.
The device boasts 2,000 Mbps data transfer rates and attaches to the MacBook Pro via an ExpressCard/34 connection and PCI Express cable. This allows the MacBook Pro to access higher-end video cards than the one that currently ships with it. Magma’s unit accommodates both 6.6″ half-length cards as well as 12.283″ full-length cards, the units selling for US$730 and US$750, respectively. According to MacNN, Magma has stated that the company will support “double-wide” GPU cards in a future generation of the ExpressBox1 to be released later this year.
