Node Titan
eGPU Enclosure with Radeon Pro W5700 Workstation GPU Bundle

Plug & Play Thunderbolt 3 External Radeon Pro W5700 Workstation GPU (eGPU) for video editors and creative professionals
Graphics. Exponentially Faster.
Perform rapidly smooth video renders and playback, run VR, AR, and animation apps, and use VR headsets with notebook and other slotless computers.
Simply plug-in the AKiTiO Node Titan and transform your MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, iMac, and any Thunderbolt 3 equipped PC into a high-end graphics processing workstation.
WORKSTATION OPTIMIZED UP TO 6 DISPLAYS
5x MiniDP ports and 1x VR-ready USB-C display connection
UP TO 18x FASTER EFFECTS AND RENDERS
Save time and money with accelerated effects, renders, and computation in pro apps and games
Connect to a World of Stunning Visuals
The AKiTiO Node Titan delivers desktop-class gaming, professional video editing, and graphics performance to notebook, all-in-one, and small form factor computers like the Mac mini, iMac, and NUC lacking a PCIe expansion slot. Just connect this high-performance eGPU solution to a Thunderbolt 3-equipped computer to utilize the power of the Radeon Pro W5700.
Explore a Different Reality
Without an eGPU like Node Titan and the WS5700 graphics card, easily exploring new dimensions with an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive VR headset on a standard notebook was pure fantasy. With the WS5700's built-in USB-C display connection, you can easily work with VR, AR, and animation apps all without compromise or the big cost of buying/building a new machine. You can also connect up to 5 additional external mini DisplayPort equipped displays for extra workspace.
The eGPU Solution for Everyone
At OWC, we believe in pairing people with the precise solution for their needs so they can experience the full performance potential from the Node Titan’s graphics power:
VIDEO EDITORS
Experience desktop-class performance from your MacBook Pro in editing suites like DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro X.
PC GAMERS
Can use a normal sized notebook and ditch the heavier weight and bulkiness of gaming notebooks.
BUSINESS PROS
Ditch the desktop and enhance your notebook with gaming, computational modeling, and extreme graphics capabilities abilities too.
High-End Video Editing. Now for Notebooks.
If you’ve dreamed of a portable editing system, welcome to a new workflow reality. The Node Titan turns internally limited graphics editing notebook computers like the MacBook Pro into a powerful editing machine. No more system performance slowing to a crawl with even basic effects. Knock out effects-laden timelines and high-quality exports in dramatic fashion with an immediate time-saving ROI.
Accelerate Pro Apps and Games
A mobile work and entertainment game-changer, Node Titan easily accelerates 3D graphics-based pro apps, games, and VR. In macOS 10.14 and later, turn on “Prefer external GPU”. On Windows 10, adjust display graphics settings in your app/game to “High performance”. That’s all it takes to experience vastly improved lighting, richly detailed textures, and breathtaking visual effects.
Grab n’ Go Graphics
Gaming or editing video on-the-go has never been easier. The Node Titan features a commercial quality electrogalvanized steel case with a retractable carrying handle to safely and easily take powerful graphics capabilities along with your notebook wherever you roam.
Fully Upgradeable and Future Ready
Unlike many eGPUs that are a one-size fits all solution just for current graphics need, the Node Titan gives you the immediate power of the Radeon Pro W5700 Workstation plus the power of future upgradability. The biggest performance advancements over the past five years have been with GPUs, not processors. The Node Titan keeps you on graphics leading edge with ease and economy.
Easily Handles Power-Hungry Cards
The Node Titan lets you play and create without limits. There’s a class-leading 650W power supply that can handle the most power-hungry cards. Speaking of handling, thanks to Node Titan’s spacious design, you can even use double-wide full-length/full-height cards.

Rating: 5/5 Outstanding in every way! May 20, 2020 The Akitio Node Titan with W5700 replaces my Blackmagic eGPU Pro and it’s an ideal upgrade. For essentially the same cost I get a unit that’s demonstrably faster, more versatile and — a most pleasant surprise — virtually as quiet as the Blackmagic unit. The footprint of the Akitio is only slightly larger, but gives me a unit that I can upgrade as newer and more powerful cards come to market. Finally, it’s always a pleasure working with an OWC product, whose makers stand behind what they make.

Reviewer: HappyMac53 Location: NC Age: Over 65 Experience Level: IT Professional Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 5/5 A well built eGPU May 16, 2020 I received my AKiTiO Node Titan Thunderbolt 3 eGPU Enclosure with Radeon RX 580 GPU quickly, only a couple of days after placing my order. While both units are shipped together they are in their own individual packaging. The card must be inserted in the eGPU enclosure which is a simple plugin that requires no tools. The AKiTiO enclosure is extremely well built and provides both the power and cooling requirements for a more powerful graphics card upgrade at a later date if needed. The eGPU enclosure has a built-in power supply so only a standard 3-prong power cable connects the unit to power (no external large power brick.) The unit is near-silent at idle but there is a little fan hum if you listen closely. This was only apparent to me because I'm using it with a silent Mac Mini. Performance is good...many times the graphics abilities built into my Mini. It did seem large at first but upon consideration, I understand that room provides future upgradability. It was a plug and play setup and I had it up and running in about 10 mins. I'm very pleased so far with this purchase.
