DK/ September 18, 2019/ eGPU Series

The term "eGPU" refers to an external graphics processing unit. It is a video card that is externally attached to a computer, and not integrated or attached inside of a case. An "eGPU dock" is the adapter used to connect the video card to the computer. The term "enclosure" might be used in place of "dock" for adapters that feature a housing for the video card.
