The Wolfe — External GPU for laptops

One of the biggest drawbacks for most consumer laptops is the lack of power. If you want to play high-end games, you may need to invest thousands in a gaming laptop, which are often heavy and produce a lot of heat.

One of the biggest drawbacks for most consumer laptops is the lack of power. If you want to play high-end games, you may need to invest thousands in a gaming laptop, which are often heavy and produce a lot of heat. This is particularly troublesome for Macbook owners, as even the Macbook Pro is not designed with gaming and virtual reality in mind. The creators of the Wolfe noted that just as one can buy an external hard drive to give a laptop more storage, it could be possible to make an external GPU to give laptops a performance boost. Thus, the Wolfe was born.

Weighing roughly 2 pounds, the Wolfe is certainly portable, and can plug into Thunderbolt 1, 2, and 3 ports, so older and newer Mac owners can use it. The box contains a Nvidia GTX 950 (or 970 in the Wolfe Pro), and when you plug your computer in, it offloads all the difficult tasks of rendering graphics to the Wolfe, rather than the onboard graphics card. This is nice for Mac users, as they should be able to play not only the latest games without framerate issues, but even use VR devices like the HTC Vive.
