ASRock Unveils World's First Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Card

ASRock will be showing the world's first Thin Mini-ITX form factor - RX570TM-ITX/TBT graphics card, which adapts with AMD Radeon RX570 graphics card and supports Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology. The RX570TM-ITX/TBT graphics card is not only the first graphics card with a Thunderbolt 3 Type-C interface which supports 40Gb/s transfer rate and power delivery, but it also features 4 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and SATA 6Gb/s interface.
The RX570TM-ITX/TBT graphics card is based on the Thin Mini-ITX concept. With this graphics card, All-in-One PC manufacturers can develop their own Thunderbolt monitors with 3D performance and power charging with less effort. Moreover, it would be able to fit in a mini ITX chassis. By connecting a notebook through Thunderbolt 3 Type-C interface, it helps to increase the notebook's 3D computing power and charge the notebook at the same time.

So it's basically a gpu for an all-in-one monitor/gpu solution then? WTF?

A workaround to get Thunderbolt 3 working on AMD CPUs?

Why would you need that? There aren't many laptops with AMD CPU's on the market, and the ones that are on the market are generally TDP throttled and have worse CPU performance than the Intel ones even after the slew of intel patches

And why would they want this to be in a Thin Mini-ITX form factor? How is this any more convenient than an MXM card?

Mxm still has to be plugged into another board. This is an all-in-one input/output gpu board shich will definitely save space. Would hve been nice if the gpu was mxm though, since you might have been able to upgrade it later then.

Why workaround?

TB3 has been opened up, so you'll start to see AMD systems with TB3.

Infact, ASRock has many new X570 AM4 motherboards with built in TB3 port, and some compatible with TB3 AIC.

boards (a few) have the ports and many more have headers already.
