OWC Unveils the Mercury Helios FX 650 eGPU for Massive Gaming, VR and Professional Graphics Processing Power

Mac and Windows PCs will never be the same

LAS VEGAS – January 6, 2019 - OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, today announced the availability of the Mercury Helios FX 650, a Thunderbolt 3 external graphics processor chassis (eGPU) that transforms a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, iMac, or any Thunderbolt 3 equipped PC into a high-end graphics processing workstation.

Modern software and operating systems utilize the massive power housed in the GPU to enhance the performance that spans across creative workflows. And nowhere is GPU realized more than with applications like high-end graphics programs, video editing suites, VR/AR software and gaming.

With the graphics processing possibilities of the Mercury Helios FX 650 combined with choice of GPU, users can experience shorter rendering times, faster video effects, and a brilliant overall user experience.

The OWC Mercury Helios FX 650 eGPU comes ready to have the GPU of choice installed. With support built into the latest macOS and Windows 10, adding this processing power is as simple as plugging the Mercury Helios FX 650 into a computer's Thunderbolt 3 port. And with a large variable speed, temperature-controlled fan, the Mercury Helios FX plays nicely even in the most noise-sensitive environments.

Unlike other eGPUs, the Helios FX 650 is upgradeable. When the time comes for a better GPU, OWC made upgrading super simple so users can reuse their investment for years to come. That’s better for them, and the environment, producing much less e-waste. The chassis is made of recyclable materials as well, which makes the Helios FX 650 the smart upgradeable and recyclable choice.

Key features:

• Enhance VR, AR, 3D and video workflows
• Elevate gaming performance
• Works with any Thunderbolt 3 laptop and desktop
• Ready to go, plug in solution
• Upgradeable eGPU chassis
• Recyclable chassis
• Mac and Windows PC compatible
• 100W notebook power and charging
• Add HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI connectivity
• Thunderbolt cable included

Availability and Pricing

The Mercury Helios FX 650 eGPU (SKU: OWCHELIOSFX650) is available now through MacSales at a MSRP starting at $399.00
