Where Can I Learn More?
At the time of writing, Sapphire has not confirmed any specific regional release dates for its GearBox 500 graphics card enclosure, nor how much we can expect it to cost. Given that they are offering it supplied with an AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT, however, I think it would be fair to say that this probably isn’t going to be cheap. For users looking for a graphics card solution on the go, however, this could well prove to be a very savvy purchase.
